CELEBRATE the summer with a fabulous £100 worth of National Garden Gift Vouchers to spend on your garden!

That’s the prize on offer in the Larne Times’ fabulous summertime gardening competition, launched this week.

We know that gardening is the perfect activity to get all the family involved, so we want your favourite photos of the younger generation helping out in the garden.

Whether it’s pulling weeds out of the vegetable patch, watering the hanging baskets or sowing seeds, we are sure you have some fantastic photos of your own little garden helpers.

All you have to do is send us a photo of a child (under the age of 11) from your family helping out in the garden.

All the photos will be published in the Larne Times in a couple of weeks’ time and readers will be able to vote for their favourite photo. The contributor of the winning photo will win the fantastic prize of £100 worth of National Garden Gift Vouchers.

National Garden Gift Vouchers are the perfect way to turn your garden or patio into the perfect entertaining at home venue.

You can create a stunning outdoor area by simply choosing some new containers, making some new flower beds or investing in new garden furniture. Whether you’ve got a huge garden with a rolling lawn and endless flower beds or just a small square of grass or patio, a hanging basket or a window box you can make your outside space work for you by creating your very own celebration garden with National Garden Gift Vouchers.

National Garden Gift Vouchers give you the freedom to choose the plants and accessories you really want and can be bought and redeemed at over 2,000 leading garden centres and gardening outlets throughout the UK, with more than 90,000 garden plants and products on offer.
