Are you the UK’s best amateur gardener?

Summer’s over, but there’s no need to feel blue. Not when there’s a chance to win up to £350 in vouchers to spend on your garden! So, now is the time to show us what you’ve been up to in the garden this summer!

Wilko, the UK’s home and garden retailer, is looking for green fingered locals to enter the 2017 ‘Wilko Amateur Gardener Of The Year’ competition. So, quick, have a scan through your social media posts and let’s see how wonderful your summer space was.  The categories are:

  1. Best Allotment
  2. Best Garden Design
  3. Best Hanging Basket/ Container
  4. Best Junior Gardener
  5. Best Wildlife Garden
  6. Best Upcycled Garden

Six lucky entrants from across the UK will be picked as category winners, shortlisted by an experienced garden judging panel, including Dominic Cole, President of The Gardens Trust and award-winning garden designer, Andrew Fisher Tomlin. They will then be passed to the public vote, held on the Wilko social media channels.

To be considered, simply email an image of your garden to wilkogardener@wearebrazenpr.com including your name, e-mail address, telephone number and category that you wish to be considered for.

The competition is open until 30th September 2017 and the winners of each category will receive a £100 Wilko gift card and trophy. One of the six finalists will be crowned overall Wilko Amateur Gardener Of The Year 2017 and receive an additional £250 Wilko gift card. Finalists will be informed by 30th October 2017 if they have been shortlisted for the categories. Full competition details and terms and conditions can be found at: www.wilko.com/show-by-departmet/garden/icat/wilkogarden
