Many thanks to everyone who entered our autumn competition back in November.  We had so many beautiful entries, judging it was a real challenge. 

But after much deliberation the winner of the School Competition was Oak Wood Secondary School in Nuneaton for their lovely collage.  The pupils made it using photographs of autumn taken in the school grounds.  Congratulations to everyone who took part.  Your  prizes are on the way.

The Family Competition was won by Jack Bruton (aged 12) for his fab funny autumn poem.  It made us all smile and is here for you to enjoy.

It’s Autumn and the snails abound
They love the damp leaves to hide around
Look in the hedge and under pots
Not just one but lots and lots!

Well done Jack – your prizes will be with you in the next few days.

…And if you would like to enter our latest round of competitions click here for Schools and here for Families.  We have some great gardening prizes to be won.

All this will be delivered to your school at the start of the Autumn Term.  Plus all entrants will receive 10% off their next order from us.
For our latest family competition we would like you to go out into the garden and collect a few flowers and leaves that catch your eye – make sure you ask a grown up first or better still why not do it together.  Once you have a nice selection carefully press them in a flower press or large heavy book. 

For more advice on pressing flowers take a look at our Simple Guide to Pressing Flowers and Leaves.  After a few days take your pressed flowers and leaves and make into a picture or your choice. 

So why not have a go and in return you could win £100 worth of high quality gardening tools and bird care goodies.   Plus every household that enters will receive 10% off their next order from us.
