Another competition has flown by and given us the opportunity to learn more about our valuable customers. What we love the most about our competitions is understanding the reason why gardening is such a beloved hobby. But more importantly, how we can help spread that love with people. Without further ado, we are pleased to announce the winner of our Summer Garden Make-Over Competition…
Nick Robson was lovingly nominated by his wife Annemarie, who highlighted his local tree planting group and dedication to the preservation of nature. In between creating a bee and butterfly garden, Nick has also spent this lockdown redoing the family home and landscaping. We hope this mystery summer bedding and basket collection can help towards the new beds he has created!
We received so many amazing and inspiring entries that we want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who shared their stories. From health care workers who need a moment of respite, and those suffering from mental health. It is truly eye-opening to see how gardening can reach people. All of your stories touched our hearts and we only hope that you continue nurturing both yourself and your garden.
There will be more J Parkers competition coming up, giving you even more opportunities to win the garden of your dreams.
