Enter our “Lockdown Legal: Garden Container Competition” - an unofficial alternative to the Chelsea Flower Show


If, like us, you are missing your trips to the Chelsea Flower Show and all those wonderful houses which open their gardens under the National Gardens Scheme, then here is a chance to participate in our online gardening challenge – and win one of the four prizes pictured above.

The Lockdown Legal: Garden Container Competition

You just need to get hold of a suitable vessel to use as a planter, plant it up with a few things, tend and water it, and share your photos on social media.   

The vessel should be no larger than 40cm by 40cm wide, but there is no restriction on height.

This competition is restricted to applicants in the UK only.  Photographs of garden containers from outside the UK will be warmly welcomed but will not be eligible to win a prize.

  • Follow us on LinkedIn and tag us by including @BernersMarketing in your post and adding the hashtag #LegalPlantPot2020
