Gardeners and schools could win prizes worth £1,000 in Cheshire Life's Garden of the Year competition with Grosvenor Garden Centre and Fryer's Roses

Keen gardeners and schoools with a passion for plants are being invited to take part in an exciting competition with two wonderful prizes.


The award-winning Grosvenor Garden Centre in Chester and Fryers in Knutsford have teamed up with Cheshire Life to launch the Garden of the Year competition. There is also a category with children in mind - the School Garden of the Year section.


The prize for the countys top garden is a generous voucher entitling the winner to spend 1,000 at Grosvenors impressive retail outlet near Chester or Fryers Garden Centre in Knutsford.


There is another 1,000 voucher for the school demonstrating the most impressive commitment to horticulture.


Cheshire Life regularly features gardens on its pages and we know that it is a popular section of the magazine. In recent years readers letters and the responses to last years competition indicate that many local schools and their pupils are enthusiastic about green-fingered gardenactivities. This competition is an opportunity for teachers and youngsters to have their work recognised and win some buying power for future gardening projects.

Cheshire Life editor Louise Taylor said: We are Cheshires most high-profile and successful magazine and its great to be working with these highly respected garden centres. Im looking forward to seeing the entries and taking a peek at all those gardens out there.

Judging: Independent judges, including a member of the Grosvenor team and Cheshire Life, will select the winners in both categories. Their decision will be final.
