Growing a garden is a very worthwhile activity and one of our great missions as an enterprise is encouraging the next generation of gardeners, getting the whole family involved with the garden and inspiring beautiful creations. Through our Finding Fairies website we hope to provide ideas and products for fairy garden inspiration across the country.
This competition is open to all except our employees. We welcome entrants of any age from anywhere. You don’t need an enormous garden or even a back garden. You don’t need deep pockets either. We want to see what creativity you can show with what you have, so whether it will be an outdoor garden or an indoor garden, with living flowers or none, we can’t wait to see your entry.
The main rule is that your garden must feature the contents of a surprise fairy garden kit. Every single one is made unique with handpicked products and materials to suit your chosen budget. The competition has a simple premise. We surprise you with what we choose and we want you to surprise us with what you make. There are two main ways to order your kit; you can buy one for £10, £20 or £30* at Findingfairies.co.uk or you can message us on Facebook with your budget to spend.
To enter the competition, you simply need to send us a photo of your entry before the 1st August 2020. One way to do this is to upload your picture to Facebook or Instagram and tag @FindingFairiesUK in the photo. Alternatively you can email your entry (please do not send multiple entries or more than two images) to firstname.lastname@example.org or send them to us in a private message.
The judges will pick their top three gardens. Third place will receive a fairy figure. Second place will win a handbag house. The judges favourite will receive a bespoke hand-painted fairy jar with their name added plus the leather boot fairy house and a fairy. The top three will all win a hand-painted commemorative glass.
