Submit your garden! Take us on a garden tour.
Andrea Bellamy |

Everyone loves a garden tour. But we can’t personally visit all the great and deserving gardens around the world. So climb aboard the Heavy Petal tour bus, where you can tour fellow readers’ gardens rain or shine, in spring or the depths of winter. The tour is full of fun people. And you don’t have to wear identifying hats in an unflattering colour.

Submit your garden

First things first: your garden doesn’t have to be perfect! It will never be finished. It will always have looked better some other time. We don’t care. We want to see real gardens. Or corners of gardens. Or balconies, or allotments. Cottagey or zen minimalist – whatever you’ve done, we want to see it. The tour will only be successful if you join in. So please do! These folks have.

Photo Requirements

Please send me five-10 photos of the best quality possible, including a mix of establishing shots and close-ups. Photos should be at least 400 pixels wide. ‘Before’ pictures are great, but not completely necessary. We just want to see what others have done, to share ideas, and above all, to escape into the garden!

You can also upload your photos to the Heavy Petal Garden Tour Flickr group.

Text Requirements

Simply copy and paste the following list into an email, fill it out and email it along with your photos (please write “garden tour” in the subject line):
