Take part in our Ready Steady Garden Competition


Would you like to create an “instant” garden at Taunton Flower Show (Friday 5th and Saturday 6th August 2022)?  Or perhaps you know someone who would?

Each day of Taunton Flower Show we are inviting two teams of two gardeners to compete in our Ready Steady GARDEN! Competition and “Pimp a Patio!” in an hour.

  • Each team will have a patio (laid before the show by our sponsor, Wellington Slabs) with an empty flower bed (about 2m2) and a small trough and planter  - all just waiting to be pimped with plants!
  • TFS will provide two matching sets of plants - sufficient in each set to allow a selection. The plants will be “planted“ in their flower pots and TFS will provide compost to conceal the flower pots.                                           
  • You will be allowed time to see the patios and plants, and to think about your design, before the competition starts. There will be one hour to complete the gardens then they will be judged.  Each day there will be a winner’s cup, and prizes for the winner and runner up. 
  • All you need to bring are gardening gloves, a trowel, some scissors, and a bucket (flexible is ideal), plus creativity and enthusiasm!
  • You will be provided with show passes and passes to park near the showground.
