A Plant In Time

Hiya! I thought this might interest a few of you - a crafty floral competition for you to enter! A Plant in Time is a National Trust competition and exhibition that brings together creativity and a passion for plants, while helping nurture environmental awareness to remind people that we all have an impact and that we can all make a difference. Their collaboration with the Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks flower show aims to create the biggest collection of handmade flowers ever to celebrate their amazing plant collections.

And you can win some amazing prizes! From the website:

'Go down in botanical history with a beautiful new rose variety named after you. Your rose will be recorded in the world-wide register of rose names and you'll become a part of gardening history. The winner will also receive:
* A National Trust holiday cottage break worth £1000
* 25 of their namesake roses to plant and some will even be planted in our gardens.
* A money-can't-buy gardening master class with one of our green gardening gurus
* A rare plant cultivated at our Knightshayes Plant Conservation Project
* An annual family pass for one year's free admission to Trust places'

Gosh! There are two categories, for under and over 16s, so if you know some children who might enjoy making some paper flowers, get them involved! You can get hold of some patterns from here, but you can also pretty much go wild!

Check out these creations:

Have a go!
