And the winner is . . .

Those of you who follow my blog will know that I like to give things away from time to time.  Most recently I posted a competition to win an amazing pair of Felco secateurs in association with

I would like to thank everyone who entered the competition and apologise for my later than planned competition finale.  I have just arrived back from Australia and will be blogging about it very soon! I hope that you all enter for the next competition that is in the pipe line at the moment.

I can now reveal that after placing all your names in to a bowl, I wanted a flower pot but it was too cold and wet to venture in to the garden, my glamourous assistant, my better half's mother dressed in a white spotty bath robe, has chosen the winner.

So without further ado, drum roll please.  The winner of the amazing prize on offer is no other than the fantastic VP* of Veg Plotting.  Well done you!

Please keep your eyes peeled for more fantastic competitions and follow my blog or add me to your reader so that you don't miss out on the next wonderful competition.

  1. Congratulations VP. I hope you enjoy using them.

  2. Wow!

    I've wanted a pair of these for aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages, but could never justify the cost. This is just brilliant :D

    They'll be given a thorough road test very soon Ryan and I'll review them on my blog.

    One email coming up.

    Can't wait to see what you thought of Oz. I love it there, particularly Sydney Botanic Gardens. Actually, there's loads more I love, but I'm just keeping horticulturally based for now ;)

  3. Again, well done VP!

    I have taken so many photo's it's going to take me so long to blog about it all! Australia was great! I may have to split my visit to the Sydney Botanical Garden's into about 3-4 blog posts!

    When I get back to my home on Sunday I will start the mammoth task that is sorting everything!

    Will wait for your email.


  4. Ryan, welcome back from Australia. Will wait for your posts about that trip. Congrats to VP! That white spotty bath robe was a cute detail!
