Rose Festival 2019 Banner


National Rose Competition for the Prettiest Rose

As part of the Sun newspaper’s National Rose Festival and its 'The Nation’s Prettiest Rose Competition', we are inviting all our valued customers to take part.

When Does it Start?

The competition opens on Saturday 22nd June and closes on the 23rd of June 2018. 

How to take part?

To enter this competition, all you need to do is: Pick the prettiest rose from your garden, pop it in a non-returnable bottle labelled with your name and number. Then bring it to our store by midday on the 23rd of June for us to judge and choose a winner.

What can you win?

The Garden centre will be giving a £50 gift voucher for the winning rose, £25 for the runner up and a Digby's Restaurant Lunch Voucher for 2 to the 3rd place. A  photo of the winning rose will be posted on sungardening.co.uk, where it will be judged for “The Nation’s Prettiest Rose”.

The top prize is £500, with the second prize of £300 and the third prize of £200!

So get picking and good luck – we can’t wait to see your beautiful blooms!
