Dobbies unveils Not Your Average Gardener awards

Dobbies has launched the ‘Not Your Average Gardener’ awards as it looks to find the UK’s “best and most dedicated” gardeners.

The garden centre chain is encouraging the public to get involved by nominating a family member, friend, neighbour or themselves for the competition, which is open to amateur gardeners across the country.

Categories include Best Community Gardener, Best Mini Garden Makeover and Most Instagrammable Garden. Young gardeners can also participate by submitting entries for the categories of Best Young Gardener, for under-16s, and Best Little Seedling, for those aged 10 and under. There is also a category dedicated to finding Dobbies’ Best New Gardener 2021.

The awards will be judged by gardener, journalist and Dobbies’ podcast host Louise Midgely and Dobbies’ horticultural director Marcus Eyles. The winners will receive £250 to spend in their local Dobbies store as well as a one-to-one gardening consultation with the judges.

Eyles said: “Gardening has proven benefits for our health and wellbeing and at Dobbies, we’re delighted to see so many more people getting involved with gardening over the past year. These awards will allow us to celebrate those who love gardening and those who show promise as potential gardening superstars. We look forward to seeing all of the wonderful gardens from entrants across the UK.”

The competition is open until 28 May and entries can be submitted via the Dobbies website.
