Do you have what it takes to design a garden for the Royal Horticultural Society and the BBC at a premier flower show?

BBC One Show gardener Christine Walkden

BBC1’s The One Show has teamed up with the RHS in a new competition which will see one lucky amateur gardener create a garden at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show on 9 to 14 July.

Millions of TV viewers will see the winning design.

Aspiring garden designers will be invited to create an 8x8m (26x26ft) family-friendly garden at the show. No previous design experience is required.

One winner will be mentored by One Show gardener Christine Walkden (left) and Adam Frost, a gold medal-winning garden designer.

One Show deputy editor Michael Armit said: “We know gardening is a big passion for many of our viewers, so we can’t wait to see the designs they come up with.”

When crafting their plot, entrants should consider if the design is wildlife-friendly and drawn-up with sustainability in mind.

Music, gnomes and offensive statues are forbidden.

Designs must be submitted by 1 March. Enter at
