Entries for our Summer Holiday Competition have been flooding in and we've EXTENDED THE DEADLINE. Here’s a reminder of what you have to do to win an exciting prize, and some examples of the fantastic artwork that we’ve already received.


The Challenge
Here’s what you need to do to enter the competition:
1. On the site we have a virtual gardener called George who is always offering help, advice and information. We want you to find your favourite picture of George on the Greenfingers site and, in not more than 50 words, tell us what he’s doing and why you like the picture. We have got to be able to recognize what he’s doing from your description.

2. George again! This time, imagine that he has come to help you – or Mum or Dad – in the garden. We’d like you to draw us a coloured picture of George doing something in your garden.

3. I’m sure you’ve all got a favourite flower or wild visitor to your garden (an insect, animal, bird, frog…). The last part of the competition is to draw us another coloured picture of whatever this favourite is.

The Prizes
First prize is a voucher with a value of £100, and the lucky winner will have the prize presented at a special ceremony by the famous TV presenter Michaela Strachan. Michaela is one of the Greenfingers Dream Team and writes about all things to do with nature and the environment in your garden. We’ll let you know the date of the presentation ceremony.

There are 50 additional prizes of a selection of superb books and CD-roms from probably the best publisher of junior reference in the world, Dorling Kindersley.

The Details
The competition closes on Friday 15th September. Please send your entries to:

Greenfingers Ltd
FREEPOST LON12511
LONDON NW5 1YR

It’s a freepost address so you don’t need to use a stamp. (Unfortunately we won’t be able to return any artwork, but we will show a large selection of them on the site.)

We’re looking forward to receiving your entries! The artwork shown here is by: Jenna Yates aged 6 (butterfly), Jenny Cameron aged 11 (George) and Alana Rea aged 11 (green woodpecker).
