Have you made a garden you’re really proud of? We’d love to see it and celebrate it in our Gardens of the Year competition 2018, sponsored by Flight Centre. Whether you garden on a balcony, in a tiny courtyard, or on rolling acres, we welcome entries from gardens of all shapes and sizes. Send us photos of your garden and tell us its story. Then, our panel of expert judges will select the winners.
Shortlisted gardens will win a professional photoshoot of their garden this summer with an expert garden photographer. Plus, thanks to our sponsor Flight Centre, three top-rated entrants will win one of three fantastic holidays…
Win a holiday to Japan for two people, including flights, transfers and nine nights in four-star accommodation, worth a total of £5,000.
I loved the whole experience. The photographer was great, and really inspired confidence. To see our garden on the cover of the subscribers' edition of the magazine was extraordinary.
Winner: Caroline Cassell Category: Small Space
To see my garden as a double page spread in the magazine was just the best reward for doing something I love. And to know that a panel of experts had really liked what I had achieved.
Winner: Helen Rushton Category: Wildlife-friendly Garden
When I thought about how many really good gardens there are in the UK, I thought my chances were slim. I hope seeing the gardens that have won will encourage others to enter next time, it has been a lovely experience from start to finish.
