Wildlife Competition winner

In the month of May we unveiled our brand new Wildlife Competition! The aim of this was to encourage all of you to keep a keen eye out for all the little friends in the garden! Another great part of this competition is our contribution to The Wildlife Trusts. For each and every donation, no matter the platform, we promised to donate £1 to help towards the preservation of wildlife. But not only that, one lucky person has won a £100 VOUCHER to spend on our website! Let’s not waste anymore time and unveil our winner…

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!

So, whether you win the competition or not, you will be contributing to the preservation of wildlife and our goal to make nature a vital part of our lives.

The Wildlife Trusts

The Wildlife Trusts are an independent charity who aim to restore a third of the UK’s land and seas for nature by 2030. As a company part of the horticulture business, nature is important to us. Through hard work and preservation we want to spread awareness of the work The Wildlife Trusts are doing. There are loads of ways to get involved with The Wildlife Trusts such as events, fundraisers and volunteering. But our favourite is through wildlife gardening! Wildlife gardening puts the focus on the smaller creatures in the garden, and how managing our gardens can help to benefit wildlife.

When does the Wildlife Competition end?

Get your photos to us by May 24th. The winner will be announced on May 28th.

Need some tips?

To have the best chance of winning our grand prize, here are some of our top tips for taking pictures of wildlife in your garden:

  • Use wildlife friendly flowers – Lobelias, Calibrachoas and Lavender work great!
  • Be sneaky – when getting close to our smaller friends a lighter foot will do wonders.
  • No flash – not only could it possibly hurt the critters, the flash might also scare them away.

Good luck and start snapping!
