Win a Set of Gardening Tools!


Here's something to cheer up the winter blues! 

Today I'm teaming up with Gardens Galore to bring you the first super competition for this year. 
The prize is a Draper fork, spade and mini trowel and fork kit valued at over £50 :) 

The weather forecast may be dire, but before you know it, the evenings will be light again and we'll getting outside to prepare for the coming season. A new kit of tools could be the very thing to help you get cracking!


If you can't make use of the prize, why not enter anyway? I'm sure there's a community project, school or something similar in your neighbourhood who'd welcome your donation.

All you need to do is leave a comment below to enter. If you tweet a link to this post or RT my link, that'll double your chances of winning. The closing date is midnight, Sunday, 24th February. Comments and tweets will be allocated a number corresponding with the order of entry and then I'll use a random number generator to determine the winner. 


Note
: this giveaway is open to UK residents only. Please ensure your comment or tweet gives me the means to contact you if you're the winner, otherwise your entry won't be valid.


Good luck!

  1. My son used my favourite spade as a sledgehammer and snapped the venerable shaft, so could do with winning these!

  7. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I've noticed that the days are getting longer already, and the clocks go forward next month too, I can't wait. It makes such a difference when the evenings don't draw in quite so quickly. I'd love to be in with a chance of winning the giveaway please.

  18. I can always use new tools ... I bought a small propagator yesterday to cheer away winter 'no gardening' blues! Maybe you can write 'top tips' to use propagators? The garden store employee wasn't so helpful ...
