I keep on entering these competitions, hoping to win something one day but it's just not happening .     

Does anyone actually win?   Anything?   Ever  ??

I haven't yet, really wanted the composting mower 

not yet but I'll keep trying.  I once entered a Telegraph competition for some solar panels and I didn't win but they sent me a book instead on how to film wildlife which was nice but rather random.

I won the seed box a few months back. Was a total suprise and something I needed as mice feasted on my seeds and bulbs carefully placed away for the winter - they ate through the envelopes and cardboard. Very happy as I never win anything! The box is square and metal and will keep the mice out this year.


I really wanted to win the border pack - it was a template for plants and you could choose tropical/cottage etc.

Im beginning to wonder if anyone does win all these marvellous prizes, I have been trying for a long time.... I think GW should publish (without personal details) who won what and when.

It hasn't accurred to me to think about this before.The law says that winners' names must be published or be available on request. It would indeed be good if they were in GW monthly.

It never seems to be updated. ....considering the amount of competitions though!

Haven't entered as thought wouldn't win

I do always think that those iinvitations that say 'Win a lawnmower' or whatever should say 'Probably fail to win a lawnmower' because that's the truth. I have a go now and then but without much optimism because even if there are only a couple of hundred entrants, the chances of winning are slim.

I did once win a diamond ring. They were pathetic diamonds.

Hello all,

To let you know that I have emailed GW and asked the question about who is winning what (if at all!) in the regular compeitions.  I suggested they should publish a list.  Anywait will update if I get a reply!  Sorry about the diamonds - did you sell the ring?!

Gave it to my daughter in law, who looked at it with distaste!

Hi again, just seen a response showing list of previous winners - apologies.  Where did you see the list?

Click on *win* then on *prevoius winners* I don't think they should put full addresses there,

The magazine have emailed me to say that they are currently working on the page and will in future be listing the monthly winners. Details should appear this weekend, good luck everyone!

I can tell ya I was very surprised.
