Hope’s snaps are top of the crops
HOPE BAKER from Winkleigh in Devon has won first prize in a photography competition run by a virtual garden centre (October, 2015).
www.potterandrest.co.uk asked people to submit photos of produce they had grown at home in the hope it would inspire others to take up gardening.
Peter Burks, Horticultural Expert at www.potterandrest.co.uk, said: “We picked seven-year-old Hope as our winner as we were extremely impressed with her colourful crop of yellow and green courgettes, golden and purple beetroot, corn cobs, dwarf beans, cauliflowers and lettuce. She has also grown potatoes at home, as well as peanuts.
“We think it is brilliant that Hope loves gardening at such a young age, she is certainly destined for a future in Horticulture.”
Hope won a £25 voucher to spend on the virtual gardening website.
Hope said: “I am really excited to be the winner of the competition. I am going to spend my voucher on lots of vegetables to plant, especially carrots.”
www.potterandrest.co.uk aims to be the largest ‘true’ garden centre online with free expert advice available to gardeners via telephone and social media backed by a five-year plant guarantee.
There is an emphasis on British grown plants and products wherever possible and some of the products and plant collections are not currently available in other garden centres in the real or virtual world.
The e-garden centre hopes to appeal to all levels of gardeners from complete novices to keen amateurs and on to expert gardeners.
