Your Chance to Win Christine Walkden’s NEW book!

Do you enter your local vegetable show or create culinary delights with your vegetables?

There’s no better time to start growing your own fruit and vegetables! Having easy access to fruit and vegetables in your back garden is a great way to save money, stay healthy and help the environment.  

We want to reward those of you who are growing your own! Here at Jersey Plants Direct we think its great that our customers are growing their own produce, and many of you grow an excellent standard of fruit and vegetables each year.   

We are giving talented fruit and veg growers the chance to WIN one of Christine Walkden’s ‘No Nonsense Vegetable Gardening Book!’ for your ‘growing your own’ suggestion. This book offers down to earth advice on growing vegetables from our very own expert! Christine is well known for her work with the BBC and was a presenter of her own series on BBC2, ‘Christine’s Garden.’ She has been writing interesting and informative articles for Jersey Plants Direct since 2008 and we are delighted to be able to offer you this fantastic prize.  

Do you produce a large crop of fruit and veg each year? Have you got a special way of keeping those pests at bay? We are looking for an interesting, helpful suggestion on how to grow fantastic fruit and vegetables in your garden.  

We had loads of fantastic suggestions entered during our Christmas competition. Mr Jolland came up with this winning humorous handy tip- 

“I use my wife’s old bras to support melons and beefsteak tomatoes.” 

Are you an expert at growing unusual vegetables we wouldn't find in the supermarket?

Don’t worry! You don’t have to grow ‘perfect’ vegetables to enter this competition. We are great supporters of odd shapes, colours and varieties. Vegetables are often wasted because they are not up to shop standards- even if they taste fantastic! 

Competition Terms and Conditions.  

Send your vegetable tips and advice to us at by April 25th. Include your name, telephone number and email address with your entry.  

It would be great to recieve photographs alongside your gardening suggestions, so why not support your entry with a photograph of your garden or helpful tip, and while you are writing why not let us know what you think of our plants too!     

The winner will be notified by email and have their name and entry published on our blog on the 26th of April 2011.  

  • By entering this prize draw all entrants consent to the publication of their name being used in conjunction with winning this competition.
  • The winner agrees to take part in reasonable post event publicity and to the use of their name and photograph (if submitted).
  • Our decision is final.
