Gardening competition 2020

Gardening competition 2020

Entries are open for our gardening competition 2020, with the closing date fast approaching on Friday 31st July! This year we have the usual categories and have added a new 'mini gardens' category for the smaller, but perfectly formed gardens. 

There are great prizes to be won with winners receiving Love2Shop vouchers. First prize will receive £50, second place will receive £30 and third place £20, plus the winner of Gardener of the Year also wins an additional £50!

During the past few weeks many of us have been finding ways to pass the days whilst at home. One example is gardening. You may have started gardening for the first time or you may be more experienced and have used the great weather to flex your green thumbs.

Whether you are new to gardening or not, you should still get involved, so get out your gardening gloves and get ready to show off your fabulous floral displays!
