Parker’s Perfect Bouquets Competition Winner

Our September competition has come to a close! Out with the old flowers, and now in with the new as the planting season has really started. We thought turning those flowers into a beautiful cut display, worthy of Chelsea, was the best way to make the most of them. Plus, you had the chance of winning 3 of our BRAND NEW Tulip Bouquet collections (worth £39.90)! But enough waiting, let us reveal our winner…

Priscilla (@waltscottageflowers)

We love this gorgeous bouquet! Priscilla really ticked all the boxes and used a lot of the tips we laid out. The pretty pastel colours compliment each other beautifully, and the different textures and heights add some real depth to the bouquet. Everything just comes together wonderfully to create something we feel deserves to be crowned as our winner.

Congratulations, Priscilla for winning our Parker’s Perfect Bouquets Competition  and thank you to everyone for entering! Another competition over means that another month has flew by. Stay tuned though, as the weather gets cooler so do our competitions and we have something especially fun coming up…

Parkers Pollinator Count Winner

Our very first Parkers Pollinator Count has finished! Much like the Big Butterfly Count which came before it, our main focus this month was the winged beauties that often populate our gardens this time of year! Another great part of this competition is the donation we’re going to make to the Butterfly Conservation. Every entry, no matter the platform, equals a £1 donation directly from us. So not only are we donating to a great cause but one lucky person has won a £100 VOUCHER to spend on website! So, without further ado lets find out our winner…

Rebecca Saxton

Congratulations Rebecca for winning our Parkers Pollinators Count! This is such a beautiful picture that allows us to see all the tiny little details that this beautiful creature posses. This little pollinator definitely seems to be doing its job as its whole body is covered in pollen, ready to pollinate and make our plants look amazing! The gorgeous flowers and sunshine in the background has helped to crown this picture as our winner.

But that’s not all! Thanks to all of your contributions we have been able to raise £91 for The Butterfly Conservation! But that’s not all, we’ve decided to DOUBLE this number and donate £182, hopefully this larger sum will help towards the charity’s efforts in helping these very important creatures thrive and make the planet a better place. Both butterfly counts may have ended but summer stays, continue keeping an eye out for the little creatures in our life and spread awareness!

Jane Newland

Congratulations Jane for winning our very first Wildlife Competition! There are so many elements to this shot that I love, starting with the interaction with nature. You must be well acquainted with the wildlife in your garden to be able to coax it to strike a pose for the camera! Along with the beautiful foliage in the background, this entry was definitely our number one.

But the fun doesn’t stop there, thanks to all your entries we were able to donate £332 to The Wildlife Trusts to help continue their amazing conservation work! Hopefully next year we can beat this amount and keep spreading the importance of wildlife. Get out there and keep looking after our planet!
