Share your gardening plans for 2021 and win!


It's been a difficult year, for all of us. Our gardens, allotments and outdoor spaces have been more important than ever, providing a refuge, a welcome distraction, and a chance to enjoy the comfort that plants and nature provide.

Like us, you're probably already planning how you can make next year's garden even better, more productive and more beautiful. 

Now your grand designs for 2021 can win you your choice of gardening prize - and hopefully inspire us all to even bigger and better gardening success in the coming year!

The best gardening aspiration will win your choice of gorgeous gardening prize, both with a value of around £90. You can choose either the Avid Allotmenteer pack, which includes some of our best-selling grow-your-own favourites:

Or you might plump for the Gorgeous Gardener pack, which will help you nurture your own personal green oasis in style:


How to enter

All you need to do to enter is to leave a comment on this blog, briefly outlining your plans for your garden in 2021. Scroll to the bottom of this page to comment (your email address won't be published). You’ll also need to be a subscriber to our monthly email newsletter to be a winner, so if you're not already signed up, fill in your email address in the grey band right at the bottom of this page. You can unsubscribe at any time if you don’t enjoy our monthly updates.

Your plans for your 2021 garden might be simple - ours is to plant more white flowers in the wildlife bed, to keep the all-day buffet going after dark so the moths can enjoy it too. You may want to grow more of your own fruit and veg next year, or branch out into new and unusual crops. Perhaps you have your eye on trying some heritage varieties of familiar favourites.

Or you might have grander plans - a new greenhouse, perhaps, to accommodate the ever-growing plant population in your garden. Or perhaps grander still, if you're lucky enough to have the space to play with - maybe a wildlife pond, landscaping a terrace on a gradient, or planting a copse of native trees... Whatever gardening vision you see in your mind's eye, we'd love to hear about it!

  • I will be moving into my new home later this month and will be planting new borders with peonies, lavender and lots of summer flowering bulbs – lilies, ranunculus etc. I am also planning my vegetable patch and have planted onions and garlic in tubs to take with me. I hope to grow cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, beetroot and gourds in my veggie patch.

  • To plant as many bee and butterfly friendly plants as possible. I hope to plant ,my Lavender, buddleia and rose cuttings if any of them survive. I also hope to try to get the ground elder under control finally.

  • I’m wanting to do a raised bedding area and dedicate it to my step father who sadly passed away in March.

  • I want to build a raised bed so I can grow some food crops, my dog would tramp over it other wise! I got a good crop of potatoes using a bag so it’s inspired me to try some more vegetables. I have herbs and fruit trees in pots that I’d also like to expand.

    Georgie Wright on
  • I shall be planting flower and vegetable seeds. That will be grown in my tunnel. Hopefully the seeds will grow successfully ready to put into my recently built raised beds. These are situated in various places in the garden.
