Competition organised by the Billericay Community Garden
Prizes donated by the Billericay Community Garden



Open to anyone living within 2 miles of Billericay High Street.

This one is aimed specifically at children. We want you to grow and create a planter or pot. Think of ways to make yours unique. Here are some ideas to get you started : 
  • Will it be a fairy garden?
  • A mini-dinosaur land ? 
  • What about a pot themed by a colour ?
  • Is it an edible pot with fruit, veg or edible flowers ? 
  • Or perhaps something inspired by your fave book or film.

You can add props to accessorise your planter – such as windmills, insects or figures – but the main focus should be plants.

  • Early years (5 and under)
  • KS1 (Years 1 & 2)
  • KS2 and above
The winner in each category will get a Children’s Gardening Set and the two runners up will receive Sunflower Seeds – all kindly provided by Billericay Community Garden .


The competition will close on July 31st so you have plenty of time.  When you’ve finished please send a photograph of your entry. We might make you famous by posting some of the best examples on Facebook !!!


Email your entries to, with the subject “PLANTING CHALLENGE”. Please ensure that your entry includes:
  • – the entrant’s name,
  • – the category they are entering
  • – your address
  • – a photograph of your planter or pot !


We may post your entry on our Facebook feed. If we do we will only use your first name and the category in which you have entered. Judges will be made up from volunteers from the Billericay Community Garden
