We’re all too aware by this point that 2020 has been a strange year so far. Many of us find ourselves spending more time at home, and our gardening community has adapted very well and remains strong.

We know that with growing your own fruit and veg comes much pride and satisfaction and what better way to showcase the fruits of your labour than recognising your hard work and the wonderful produce you have grown through lockdown .

We have 4 categories for you to enter your amazing photos: Growing with Family, Small Spaces Growing, Rustic & Repurposed Gardens, Growing for the first time. We’ll choose one winning image from each category and its owner will receive a £50 Dobies Gift Voucher to spend online.

Growing with Family

One of the ways we have been spending our time during lockdown is in the garden with our loved ones. We want to see how your family has used outdoor spaces to grow fruit, veg and flowers this season.

We want to celebrate all those budding new gardeners, proud of their first strawberry or runner bean!

Small Spaces Growing

Often a large area to grow isn’t always available but we know how innovative you all are. We want to see what you have managed to grow in smaller areas.

We want to see what you’ve grown in smaller spaces such as patios, balconies or even smaller areas of your garden.

Show us how you’ve grown crops vertically or used hanging baskets to free up space. Get creative with your space and your pictures!

Rustic & Repurposed Gardens

We want to see all the creative and innovative ways you have grown things. This could be re- using household rubbish for planters or a pair of old boots as a plant pot! We want to see how you have transformed everyday items to become useful in your garden.

We want to see more than just your DIY gardening projects. Has your garden had a complete make over during lockdown? Show us! We want to see how you’ve spent your time transforming your garden.

Have you finally got round to clearing that one area in the garden we’re not proud of and turned it into a lovely vegetable patch? Or transformed an area of our lawn into beautiful flower beds? We want to know what inspired you to do it now.
