How to Conduct a Virtual Garden Tour

We just cancelled a garden tour and want to substitute a virtual garden tour. Please share your suggestions and experiences.

 

Thank you,

I posed this question on NARGS social media and have gotten one response so far:

"I've watched some virtual tours. Shaky camera work makes me feel ill so try to keep as steady as possible. It would be great if you could edit the video, inserting a close-up of feature plants. It can be frustrating seeing a plant in the background but not clear enough to identify it. Good luck!"

 

I'll add that I like when tours spend some time on a plant. You can tell the plant's story as you have the camera on it for a few minutes. 

I hope this is helpful!
