Competition Time: Win a Cloche :)

In a change from my usual Sunday review slot, I thought it was time for something different and to have a competition instead. I've found just the thing with PochCloche, who are offering you the chance to win one of five AcryliCloche® Low Barn Garden Cloches in their ‘Cloche and Grow’ Competition.

Everyone who enters the competition will receive a 10% Discount Code to spend on AcryliCloche® Garden Cloches on the PoshCloche website, so we're all winners in one way or another :)
For your chance to win one of these fantastic garden cloches Enter Here.
The AcryliCloche® is made in the UK from rigid plastic which is resistant to UV and frost damage and comes with a 5-year guarantee. It doesn’t require any assembly so you can begin to use it as soon as it arrives.
The Low Barn Garden Cloche can be used for:
  • Growing your own fruit and vegetables
  • Protection from frost, wind and rain
  • Protection against pest damage
  • Warming up the soil before sowing or planting
  • Extending the growing season
  • Forcing crops
  • Hardening off tender plants
Good luck everyone - I'm looking forward to getting an email from PoshCloche telling me that at least one of you has won by entering from my blog!
NB I've started a new Competition Page in the right sidebar for this and future competitions, giveaways etc., so you'll quickly be able to find what's currently on offer in there.

  1. Oh! I was so excited about the competition...but I live in Australia. Bummer! My dad used to have glass cloches on a bent wire frame. We have been cleaning up the house ready for sale as my mother has gone into care. Under the house I found all his glass. I wonder if I can fashion some frames? I will look around for some of those acrylic cloches over here...but I haven't seen any yet.

  2. Hazel - so sorry you can't enter. It's one of the downsides of us being in a global community I'm afraid. I'm sure you can fashion some frames from the glass you've found. I did exactly that when I first got my allotment - I found 2 long panes of glass amongst everything that had been left. I bought some clips and hey presto - 1 cloche!

    I hope things go as well as they can with your mother - we're in a similar situation here, so I know just how hard it can be.

  3. Thanks for the details of the competition VP. Off to have a go. Have recently won a years subscription to 'The Irish Garden' in a competition and a pot of snowdrops in garden club raffle :)

  4. Anna - sounds like you're on a roll :) Good luck with your entry!

  5. Oooh! Cool - or should that be warm?! Got to be worth a go - thank you!

  6. These look fantastic, VP. I hope you get plenty of entrants and lots of successful plant growers from using these cloches. I don't grow food plants from seed so although I have a nice bell-shaped glass one somewhere around here, I have only used it once or twice.

  7. Plantaliscious - thought you might like one for your allotment - good luck!

    Jodi - I love those bell shaped one and the really old fashioned lantern ones. Not very practical though!

  8. I've been wishing I could have a cold frame. A cloche would be fine. I've entered. At least, I think I have. Do you just have to put your name and email address? You don't have to DO anything?


    P.S. If you are collecting competitions . . . could you find one in which I could win a terracotta rhubarb forcer please?
