I’ve teamed up with Haven for a gardening challenge!
Holiday home owners from Haven’s four parks in the region have been challenged with creating an innovative and creative garden feature and I’m going to judge and crown one lucky winner Turf Wars Champion 2015
The event will bring together holiday home owners from Haven’s four parks in Norfolk – Hopton Holiday Village, Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park, Seashore Holiday Park and Wild Duck Holiday Park.
Haven owners use their holiday homes at the weekends and quite often stay the whole summer. There’s a real community on the parks and there are events and clubs they can join including a gardening club.
They don’t own the land around their caravans so their only option is to do a lot of container gardening which they then place around the base or verandas if they have them.
Although they lack the space enjoyed by traditional gardeners, the owners are no less green-fingered and are extremely passionate about growing.
This year, all this passion is being channelled into the first ever gardening competition among Haven owners.
The challenge for entrants is simple: put your gardening creativity and skills to the test to create your interpretation of The British Seaside Garden. Entrants must create their masterpieces within the confines of a few seaside buckets and not forgetting the spades!
Watch this space and I will publish photos of the winning buckets next month. There should be plenty of creativity to inspire you!

His demonstration and tips were very informative and entertaining.
