BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine’s Garden of the Year competition

There’s £10,000 of Cobra gardening kit to be won.

The closing date for entries is midnight on Monday 2 May, so you’ll need to act fast.

There are three categories that you can enter your garden into:

  1. Wildlife-Friendly Gardens – for gardens that provide a haven for a host of different creatures. 
  2. Challenging Plots – for gardens created in tricky sites such as on a slope or in an exposed location. 
  3. Small Space – for gardens up to 250 square metres.

Entrants must not make money for themselves through their garden, but we’d love to see entries from people who open their gardens to raise money for charities such as the National Garden Scheme.

Go to gardenersworld.com/garden-competition to find out more and to enter.
