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.
Simply take a photo of your garden and send it to us on social media, tagging us using @burgonandball. It might be a image which sums up the season, a new gardening project, or a truly spectacular bloom that you'd like to put in the spotlight.
It's easy to send us your photo - we’re on Facebook, Twitter 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.
Each month we’ll enjoy looking through the pictures you send us, and we’ll post the best three on our homepage, for everyone to enjoy! And even better, our favourite image each month will win a gorgeous gardening prize: a very special limited edition RHS-endorsed trophy trowel, proudly engraved with the 'Burgon & Ball Garden of the Month' crest.
So why not share your beautiful garden on social media, tagging us @burgonandball – you might see your photo on our site, and be Garden of the Month!
Competition is open to UK residents over the age of 18 only.
