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!

  • We are going more edible this year. Were digging a new patch specifically for our veggies and have settled on cabbages, tomatoes, lettuces, pumpkins and onions. We already grow raspberries (golden and red) but we need to chop them back and move some around. We have 2 grape vines, an apple tree, an olive tree, a plum tree and another tree which we are not sure what it is yet, and they all need a good cutback this year. Our grass needs patching up so we will get seed and sort the really poor areas with turf 😀

  • I have just moved house, so when spring comes I need to give the whole garden an overhaul! Oh and I need to get rid of the swing and slide set that the previous occupants left behind!

  • I intend to clear and replant the front garden with low maintenance plants but bee and wildlife friendly ones.

  • After my garden of nearly 25 years has been used for various activities for my 4 children who are now adults, it’s time for a garden for me. I don’t really plan what to do I just get out there and see what happens and that is what I will continue to do.

  • I want to make the garden dementia friendly for mum. I’ve started measuring out the amended beds. I want to put edging around them, raise them so that they are more accessible and create clearly visible paths so mum can find her way without tripping or trampling the veg. There will be an area for her to grow her own veg, so she doesn’t have to worry about ‘doing things wrong’. And the battle of the brambles will escalate. When that’s done I’ll plan phase two!
