Ryan's Garden Spring Competition

Spring is here although it did get off to quite a slow start.  Right now it's taken a little step back what with the new wave of cold winds and heavy showers but is there hope for a sizzling June, July and August? 

Whether it’s a barbecue summer or a total washout, our friends at Subscription Save have your gardening needs covered.  The publishers of The English Garden, Country Smallholding, Your Chickens and many other titles, want to share the love by offering Jane Cumberbacth's Pure Outside Style book or a Burgon & Ball kneelo to 10 lucky readers

To enter the competition just make a guess as to how the year will pan out - “bbq summer” or “total washout”.  Enter your prediction in the comments box at the bottom of this post for your chance to win. There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to your entry, it's just a bit of fun!
You can gain an additional two entries to the competition by retweeting @ryansgarden promoting the competition on twitter or by sharing a link from the Ryan’s Garden Facebook page (you must like the page to share the link).  The number of entries will not increase if you retweet or share links more than once.

    I get the feeling that in Wales, where you are, Ryan, will be a wash out, because here, in California, USA, it is DRY.

  2. BBQ summer - got to keep positive.

  3. Retweeted you too @ericahughes

  4. sadly I think "total washout " again this year. I love to be proved wrong though.

  5. BBQ summer - after two fairly poor growing years for us, I'm keeping fingers crossed for sunshine with just a smattering of rain to water the crops!

  6. i have a feeling for a BBQ summer

  7. Total washout - will be gutted if it is though. I have an allotment and it seems like a very long time since I could sit on my bench there in the sun.

    1. I too long for those moments and drinking my morning cuppa in the garden :)

  8. Here's hoping that the jet stream moves just north of Scotland..........but I doubt it will - so I think it could be a total washout. The slugs will be having a party!

  9. I am an eternal optimist and am hoping for a bbq summer.

  10. I'm thinking mini heat waves with mid week down pour days :)


  11. Last years weather has been great for the camellias and rhododendrons and the hydrangeas [which I always hated before]were fantastic. After 2 months traveling around beautiful Indonesia with it's stinking heat what a pleasure to be back in cool fresh and green blightey.
