 The sixth Kent Life Amateur Garden of the Year and Best Primary School Garden Awards are now open, with a new sponsor this year.

 Joining Hadlow College, who have backed the competition from year one and provide the venue and high tea for our afternoon prize-giving ceremony, is Coolings Garden Centre, based in Knockholt, which is generously providing the two overall winners’ benches, plus vouchers to spend at the store for both winners and runners up.

 The Awards are held in support of Kent Life Charity of the Year, chYps Children’s Hospice at Home.

 Don’t miss your chance to win some of the fabulous prizes – now’s the time to get your home or school garden looking shipshape and preparing your entry.

 Full details and criteria are included in both entry forms, which you will find on the website, kentgardenawards.co.uk, and in the March and April editions of Kent Life.
