Are you green fingered? Do you have an eye for a colourful arrangement? If so now is your chance to show off your gardening skills!

We are delighted to announce that the 2019 gardening competition is now open! We had lots of entries last year, and lovely comments on how impressive the colourful hanging baskets, pots and beds looked, so well done to everyone who took part.

Open to all

The competition is open to all Derwent Living customers wherever you live. It’s easy to enter, just take some pictures of your garden or container displays and email or post them to us at the address below.

You can send in your entries any time before 30 August 2019, so there is no need to wait until summer if you have a particularly impressive spring display.

This year’s categories are:

Best individual garden – for private front or back gardens; can include bedding displays, trellises or a combination of pots, beds and trellises.

Best container display – for single, small or large collections of pots, hanging baskets, or window boxes.

Best communal garden – for shared gardens; can include bedding displays, pots, trellises, or a combination of pots, beds and trellises.

Please send us a selection of photos showing your beautiful garden or containers at their best.

You can send your photos by email to or post them to: Derwent Living gardening competition, 1 Centro Place, Pride Park, Derby, DE24 8RF.

Please include your name, address, a contact telephone number or email address and the category you are entering. Entries must reach us by 30 August 2019.
