But first a great big thank you to everyone, gardeners, helpers, co-ordinators, press, volunteers and not least of all our visitors, who all helped us to have a very successful weekend.

We know from some feedback how much people enjoyed themselves and hope to soon give you some statistics but you may be interested to know that in the eight days before and including the weekend 694 people looked at the website to plan their visits to gardens.

Update from the 6th Newsletter

 On Monday morning, the 30th June, numbers and receipts started coming in. It was immediately apparent that the event had been a huge success and hopes were high that we were going to surpass our upwardly-revised target of 1,500€. By Friday, 4th July it finally dawned on us that not only would we reach this amount, but that it would be hugely exceeded. As I write, there are still a couple of small amounts to come in but the final amount will just exceed 3,000€!! This is not just a wonderful achievement; it is an incredible achievement and exceeds our wildest expectations.

The Conseil and Steering Group getting on well with the planning for next year. The creation of icons to describe gardens is virtually complete and the trial version of an app for mobiles and tablets progressing well.

Ticket prices have been agreed and gardeners will be able to open through out the year as they choose, a calendar is starting to come together with all the details.  The top menu bar has all the links so have a look around.

There will be more announcements as we head towards winter and prepare for an amazing year in 2015
