The Big Basket Challenge!

Be rewarded for your gardening efforts by entering Gardener’s World’s Big Basket Challenge!

Hanging baskets are a beautiful addition to any display and perfect if you have a small garden or want to brighten up the front of your home. If you want to try something different this year, why not create a basket to celebrate 2012′s two biggest events – the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics!

Gardeners World are setting the challenge for you to create either a basket in their colour themes, ‘Flying the Flag’ or ‘Growing for Gold.’ The first encourages gardeners to create a red white and blue basket while the second should be yellow and gold.

Garden designers Rachel de Thame and Joe Swift will be judging the competition alongside Gardeners World editor Adam Pasco. Get growing and upload a photo of your basket to!

If you need a helping hand or aren’t sure where to get your flowers from take a look at our previous article on ‘How to Create a Patriotic Display.

We have the ideal collection of red white and blue Petunias, click here for more information! Or you can use our fantastic plant finder to select the perfect yellow and gold flowers for your basket, click here for more information!

We’d love to see your beautiful basket designs too so post your photos to our entriesĀ Facebook wall here after you’ve entered!
