Following on from the massive success of our Easter quiz we have created another .
All answers can be found somewhere on each garden’s website and exploring, finding out more whilst seeking out the answer, and then finally spotting it, is half the fun.
Some intriguing facts form the answers, so something can be learned along the way – perfect rainy day or social isolation pastime.
The winner of the quiz will win a pair of tickets to the garden venue of their choice and the closing date is September 17, giving the winner a chance to do that this year, if they wish to do so, whilst the venue remains open. If not, it will be something to look forward to in 2021.
