The BBC and RHS are calling for aspiring garden designers in England to design a ?Feel Good Front Garden? for this year?s Hampton Court Flower Show.

A spokesperson said: ?We?re asking amateur gardeners and aspiring garden designers in England, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man to create and submit a front-garden design that celebrates their local community and highlights the health and wellbeing benefits of gardening.

?Four of the best designs – chosen by an esteemed judging panel – will go on to be built at the world-famous flower show in July, giving the winners an opportunity to see their designs become a reality.?

Speaking of the competition, Dave Green, Show Manager for RHS Hampton Court, said: ?This is a fantastic opportunity for someone passionate about gardening and design to see their vision come to life.

“They will get a glimpse into the world of garden design, gaining expert advice and hands-on experience. I am very excited to see what the BBC local radio listeners come up with.?

RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show takes place between the 5th and 10th of July.
