    You do not make clear whether the charcacter count for the answers to the questions include spaces or not.

    Please help

      Hi Archie, thank you for your comment. The character count includes spaces – but there is a reasonable amount for each question. We’d love everybody to be able to write for days about their garden but we have to read and shortlist them so we have a word limit.

    We got to know about this competition a bit late but staff have managed to fill and submit the application form for “The Edible Garden” in Innerleithen, Scotland. Its a fantastic opportunity for local communities to highlight the work they do by entering this competition. Thank You!

      Thank you for the great comment, we have been overwhelmed by the response this year and so it will be a hard one for the judges. Thank you for submitting your entry. We shall let you know in around 10 days if you have been shortlisted. Good Luck!
