Thank you to everyone who entered our April May 2012 Competitions we were inundated with entries and choosing winners proved quite a challenge.

The Schools Competition was to ‘Draw a Royal Garden’, the variety of the entries and the ideas were wonderful but there could only be one winner and Southville Junior School was chosen, with the winning entry drawn by Adam. Adam has obviously put a lot of thought, time and care into his design and we loved his 3D Queen and Lions.

The winning entry by Southville Junior School

Their prizes of a Kids Standing Raised Bed Growing Table, a Gardener’s Apprentice Hand Fork and Hand Trowel, two Children’s Gardening Aprons, a Kids Traditional Watering Can and a selection of Seeds are on their way and we hope they will prove useful in their school garden.

The Family Competition was to ‘Sow and grow something you can eat on your windowsill’ again we had a great response to this competition, the winner was Sid Hunter from Hertford who grew a bean plant just like Jack and the Beanstalk. To germinate his bean Sid placed it on cotton wool so that he was able to see it growing and the roots and leaves appearing, what a great idea. Sid looks thrilled with the bean that he has grown and we hope that it will produce a good crop.

Sid and his bean

Sid’s prizes of a Children’s Mini Propagator Seed Growing Kit, A Growbox Children’s Flower Garden in a box, a Kid’s Traditional Watering Can, and a Gardener’s Apprentice Hand Fork and Trowel are on their way, we hope that he has great fun using these.

Why not have a go at our current competitions; in the School Zone you could win a Solar Insect Theatre and a Butterfly and Moth Feeder by completing our Butterfly Wordsearch and in the Family Zone you could win a Solar Insect Theatre and a Butterfly Nectar Feeding Station by filling in the missing colours to complete the butterfly names.

Good Luck
