Garden Design FAQ's

Q. If I win who builds the garden at the Belvoir Castle Flower Show?

A. You ......and your friends, family, colleagues, class mates etc. You have 5 days to re-create your design using all the elements you've designed in and which the Downtown team will deliver to Belvoir Castle


Q. Can I visit Downtown and see everything on the shopping list?

A. Almost! but remember, the shopping list shows seasonal product ready for the garden build in July, so the seasonality of the plants and garden products needs to be taken into account. There are pictures of everything on the shopping list though and our team are happy to chat to anyone regarding product availability and any questions about their design.


Q. How many winners are there and what is the prize?

A. There will be 5 winners selected to build their gardens and all 5 win all the elements they've included in their design to the value of £1000


Q. I've never designed a garden before, can I take part?

A. Yes! Have a go, we want everyone to take part and have fun, Charlie, David and Andy will be looking for creativity, new solutions, eco friendly ideas, best use of a small space etc rather than judging by strict RHS criteria


Q. Can I include additional elements I've not found on the shopping list - I have an old bench I want to re-purpose?

A. Yes....but, any additional items must be re-cycled, found, re-purposed or created for free, nothing bought elsewhere or new in any way. Plants must be from the Downtown shopping list.
