    1. No, we do not require proof of purchase – however we will question any image that is of bulbs obviously growing in public woodlands/parks etc.


    1. Thanks John – We got your image through the competition email address this morning – Good luck in the competition!

  1. Hello

    I have sent in some photographs over the last few weeks of the bulbs blooming in my garden, however, I have forgotten to add my name and postcode on the emails. Do I have to resend them?

    1. Thanks Sabrina,

      No need to worry – the postcodes are useful when we have several people enter with the same name, its just to help us with labeling the images.

      No need to re-submit


  2. Hi i have sent five different pictures of flowers in my back garden, we only moved here 10 months ago, the garden had been left for a couple of years, so was quite abandoned. I bought a lot of bulbs from you in sept and oct 2017. and have now got an absolute mass of colours and beautiful bulbs, that i am so really pleased with. i never thought i would get such a lovely display in just 4-5 months, I had to send you some pictures to see what you think of my display. The first picture i sent of white tulips called Gwen were planted on the same day my mum was buried her name was Gwen so i got them in her memory, she would have loved them, as much as i do. Can’t wait now for my next lot of plants to arrive from you.

    Many thanks Kate Reed

    1. We’ve got them, thanks Kate! Your discount code should be on its way in an email,

      Good luck in the competition.

  3. Hi I have multiple photographs which I wish to enter via email, however it mentions above that emails must be under 5mb. Does this mean 5mb in total photographs per person entering or can multiple emails containing multiple photographs be sent if the total comes to more than 5mb? Thank you.

    1. Hi Hayley,

      Yes please feel free to send multiple emails where the total is over 5mb, you can enter the competition as many times as you like!
