In light of the COVID-19 situation, we have had to make the decision that Moseley in Bloom Open Gardens will not take place this year. It is extremely unlikely that the virus will be under control by the end of June and that mass people movement would therefore be safe again. But, even if it were, our current timetable of planning would involve visiting gardens, talking to owners and calling for volunteers during April, and that simply cannot happen.
In times of uncertainty people need clarity and we hope that making the decision now will reduce peoples’ anxiety.
We are currently investigating other possibilities for some kind of garden event – watch this space to find out more, once we have had chance to develop these ideas.
Best wishes, stay safe, and enjoy your gardening; Moseley gardens should look amazing this year!!
