Big Wildlife Garden Competition – enter now!
07 October 2011
The Big Wildlife Gardening competition is a commitment contained in the Government’s Natural Environment White Paper, and will be run by The Wildlife Trusts and The Royal Horticultural Society.
Entry is free and open to everybody in the UK. There are categories for both small and large residential gardens; and for educational, community and business gardens.
What you do for wildlife on your doorstep can make a big difference. And it's not just wildlife that benefits. You'll feel good too: getting outdoors can be both relaxing and invigorating.
The more people who do their bit for the wildlife in their patch, the bigger the UK's garden nature reserve.
The competition seeks to find some of the best examples of wildlife gardens in the UK - ones that will inspire others to take action to turn their gardens into wildlife havens. Remember that size doesn't matter - small-scale actions can still reap big rewards for wildlife.
Prizes include a gardening masterclass at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, where the prize-giving ceremony will take place, along with membership of The Wildlife Trusts and the Royal Horticultural Society. The competition will run until 20 May 2012.
