The Yates Spring Vegie growing Challenge began in 2010 and quickly developed into a wonderful community of gardeners sharing daily trials and successes that come with getting a vegetable garden going in the midst of spring weather. It is due to this incredibly supportive community that the Vegie Growing Challenge is entering its 12th season!
And as always Yates has been supportive and generous as it provides this fabulous platform for all gardeners of all levels of experience with gardens of all sizes from the tiny to the enormous, to grow and develop as well as the opportunity to win great prizes.
We are looking forward to another wonderful season gardening alongside some inspiring Kiwi gardeners.
The 2021 Yates Spring Vegie Growing Challenge starts on the 1st September 2021 and ends on the 10th December 2021
These will be awarded to three outstanding gardeners participating fully in the Challenge.
Runner Up Prizes:
We are looking for one enthusiastic gardener who is new to gardening or discovered gardening during a lockdown or someone who is a bit rusty because they haven’t gardened for a very long time or a someone with more passion than experience.
We will be looking for one gardener who encourages other gardeners, has great top tips and is a friendly and supportive presence in the Yates Vegie Growing Challenge.
This one gardener could be anyone who stands out to the Team at Yates and could be a steady weekly blog poster, or an enthusiastic kid, or someone who overcame a challenge during the growing season and carried on anyway, or for any other reason where we see a keen gardener doing good things.
Also, up for grabs:
ONE weekly pack of seeds for a randomly selected gardener, announced on a the What’s Going On section of the main page on a Monday.
There will be four mini challenges during the challenge. Participation is optional and it doesn’t affect the overall outcome of the Vegie Growing Challenge, however there are some great prizes to be won. Keep an eye out on the What’s Going On page or on Sarah the Gardens blog posts for details.
Sometimes things go wrong in the garden or in the challenge and you may need some help.
There are several ways you can keep up to date with the things going on throughout the challenge:
Thank you once again for signing up and joining the Yates Spring Vegie Growing Challenge. We hope you enjoy participating as much as we enjoy hosting it. Good luck and have a fabulous season.
