Design a Platinum Jubilee Garden and win £250 worth of plants


A GARDEN nursery in North Yorkshire has launched a design competition – with £250 worth of plants up for grabs for the winners.

To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and gardening, Johnson’s of Whixley is running a competition for local primary schools to win £250 worth of plants for their school.

A Johnson’s spokesperson said: “Draw your Primary School Platinum Jubilee Garden in the white box provided in the packaging. Have someone help you label it so we can see what it contains – and make it full of color – you can use paints, pens, pencils or cutouts from magazines.”

Entrants must be aged 11 and under – and the school you are applying from must be within 15 miles of Johnson’s of Whixley location.

Photos of entries should be scanned and emailed to by Friday 20 May. Johnson’s marketing manager and a local gardener will judge the entries.

Be sure to include name, age and school. In addition to plants for their school, the winner will receive a certificate and 10 plants for their own home. Second and third place winners will win a plant for their own garden.
