WIN pounds 250 worth of vouchers if yours is one of Brum's best gardens.

CALLING all green-fingered Birmingham Mail readers!

As part of our Go Green campaign we've teamed up with Focus DIY to launch a search for the West Midlands' best gardens with prizes worth pounds 1,000.

This is your chance to show off your horticultural skills and give the likes of Monty Don a run for his money.

You don't have to have a plot the size of the Botanical Gardens to enter.

Our judges are looking for gorgeous gardens ranging from classic family plots to those created on patios and in window boxes. We are also searching for the best vegetable plots and gardens created by schools.

There are four different categories to enter. The winner of each will be awarded pounds 250 worth of vouchers from Focus DIY which you can spend at any of its 180 stores nationwide.

Use them to turn your garden into a super stylish oasis with the latest patio furniture, barbeques, benches and gazebos from the brand new gardening range 2008.

Focus DIY has all the creativity you could need, so take inspiration from the Mediterranean and add a dash of creativity with colourful pots, candles and brilliant blooms which will transform your garden into a living space that can be used all summer long.

If you fancy sprucing up the indoors too, Focus' super glamorous and recently re-launched wallpaper range has a fantastic selection of designs to update any interior look and the super stylish and affordable new takeaway kitchen range is also on sale now.

The categories in our Go Green Gardening Competition are:

1. Best Large Garden - over 100 square yards.

2. Best Small Garden - under 100 square yards (including window boxes and patios).

3. Best School Garden.

4. Best Vegetable Plot (including allotments).

In keeping with the message of our Go Green campaign extra marks will be awarded to gardeners who use eco-friendly methods and encourage wildlife.

To enter our fantastic competition just email or post a picture of your garden to or

Go Green Best Garden Competition, Birmingham Mail, Birmingham Post and Mail House, Weaman Street, PO Box 30, Birmingham, B4 6AT, with your name, address, telephone number and your garden category.

You can also post them straight onto our website by visiting and clicking on 'Send Your Pics.' Please mark your pictures 'Go Green Best Garden Competition.' You also need to write and tell us in no more than 200 words why you think your garden deserves to win, your garden's dimensions - and tell us how you've gone green in your garden. Good luck!
