Share your gorgeous 2019 garden

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW CLOSED

 

We all love our gardens. Each garden is special, whether it’s a generous expanse of greenery, or a compact courtyard. Even if your gardening space is a balcony or window box, or if you’re an indoor gardener, you can enjoy the sense of calm, the appreciation of beauty and the simple joy that gardening brings.

And of course it’s lovely to be able to share the fruits of our labours. But because we can’t all open our gardens for the National Garden Scheme, we thought it would be nice to create a way for gardeners to share their gardens here, on the Burgon & Ball website.

At Christmas, with most gardens slumbering under a layer of frost - or even just a bit damp, drab and dreary - we thought we’d take the opportunity to fill our social media timelines with horticultural loveliness. Whether full of the brilliance of spring, the exuberance of late summer or the stillness of winter, we want to see pics of your gorgeous garden!  To get us all looking forward to a great year of gardening ahead, pick out your best gardening pics from this year and send it to us on social media, tagging us using @burgonandball.

 

The best gardening pic of 2019 will win a choice of gorgeous gardening prize, both with a value of just over £80. You can choose either the Avid Allotmenteer, which includes some of our best-selling grow-your-own favourites:

 

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

How to enter

To enter, you might choose to send a photo which sums up a season, a new gardening project, or a truly spectacular bloom that you'd like to put in the spotlight. Gorgeous sheds, towering sunflowers, cosy corners to enjoy a glass of something cold, a single stunning rose, a super-stylish windowsill of succulents, a swathe of poppies, a wild visitor to your garden… we’d love to see your 2019 garden life!

It's easy to send us your photo - we’re on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, as well as Pinterest and YouTube  – and we’d love it if you should choose to follow us, while you’re there! Just look out for @burgonandball. We’ll share some of your images on social media over the Christmas break, and also feature a selection on our homepage in the early months of the new decade. You have until New Year’s Day to tag us in your photos, and we’ll pick a winner on 2 January 2020.

So why not share your beautiful garden on social media, tagging us @burgonandball – you might see your photo on our site, and win a lovely bundle of gardening goodies to get your 2020 garden off to a flying start!

How to prune wisteria

We’re all a little bit in love with wisteria, aren’t we? It's a stunningly beautiful plant, managing to combine exuberance and elegance. Wisteria does best when it's kept in trim, as regular pruning will keep it from taking over,  while encouraging flowering. Here's our quick guide to how and when to prune wisteria.
