Are garden parties, garden tours, or open days on your summer calendar this year?

 

No matter the occasion, sharing your garden is a lovely, generous, and memorable gift for your guests. But, the most important question for you, as the gardener and host, is: how can you make the gift sharing of your garden life-giving to you? Certainly, hosts who find themselves over-tired, physically exhausted, stressed out, or financially overspent will find little joy on their garden’s big day.

 

Today, I’ll talk about how you can focus on the right things to maximize your happiness during your garden event. Plus, I’ll share my tips for adding some extra special little touches that can make your garden stand out among the other events or parties your guests will attend this summer.
