New Competition - Win a Fire Pit

Recently I was contacted by Anna from Select Furnishings a company that sells outdoor furniture.  She had come across my blog and wondered whether I would be interested in hosting a competition that the company would like to run. I responded asking for further details and decided that I would like to give visitors the opportunity to take part and for one lucky visitor to take away the prize on offer -  a Landmann Outdoor Fire Pit that usually retails at almost £200. This is maybe just the thing to own if our weather doesn’t improve.

To take part in the competition you are asked to write a post to publish on your own blog  about what inspired your interest in gardening. For example you could write about childhood gardening memories, an inspirational experience or person. The format and style should  fit the genre of your blog but at least one photograph or illustration should be used.  (I'll publish my blog post as an example tomorrow). Obviously one aim of the competition is to gain exposure for the company  so your post must include a mention and link to the Select Furnishings home page and also a link back to this post on my blog.

Once you have published your entry on your please make a comment on this post and I will add a link to your posting so that Select Furniture can access your entry for judging. I've popped a link on the top of the sidebar so you can access this post easily as it works its way down the blog page.

To give you plenty of time to take part the closing date for your entry will be Tuesday 7 May - the day after the May Day Bank Holiday. Please make sure that you have posted your comment indicating that you wish to take part in this competition by midnight GMT on 7 May and I will make sure all entries have been collated by the end of that week so that Select Furnishings can start judging.

The winner will be announced on my blog.

Unfortunately due to delivery issues the competition is restricted to UK entries only. Sorry non-UK based visitors.




PS - If you are outside of the UK and want to join in by writing a post then let me know and I'll post a link to your blog too but sorry about there being no prize for you!

This competition is now closed and the winner will be announced on my blog as soon as Anna has made a decision! Good Luck everyone

Entries - Pop along and heave a read - All entries will be linked here by 12:00 noon 7 May 2013

  1. Sounds like a great competition Sue. I'm in! My story may be a tad boring to win such a competition but it's going to be great to hear about what has inspired so many people to pick up a spade and start creating.
    Thank you Sue & Select Furnishings for the opportunity :)

    1. But I guess you knew where to buy one from which is why you sneaked in the free link to what I suppose is your website! Visitors aree advised not to follow links in comments.
