Hands up if you’ve been spending an unusual amount of time in the garden lately?
I know that I’m lucky, that not everyone has the luxury of a garden, but if you do have one, or even just space for a few window boxes, then you might be interested in this competition that I’m hosting on behalf of Sudocrem to win one of three family gardening sets.
With schools closed for the foreseeable, millions of parents all over the UK are looking for new ways to keep children busy and so Sudocrem has launched their new Back to the Garden campaign, an initiative to get families back into planting and growing, wherever they are. Encouraging your children to plant seeds and take an interest in growing can give them a long-term project to focus on, away from the computer. And the good news is, you don’t need a garden to get involved: creating a window box full of edible herbs can be just as inspiring as digging a vegetable patch.
I’ve thought about Sudocrem quite a bit on and off since I had my ridiculously naive realisation about them last year. Please tell me I wasn’t the only one who didn’t realise this? It’s listed in the ingredients AND there is lavender coloured lettering, so I feel quite stupid, but I’d always just thought the smell was ‘Sudocrem’.
Teaming up with gardeners and garden centres all over the nation, Sudocrem’s Back to the Garden campaign will encourage children and their parents to begin their own gardening projects at home or in the garden. The initiative will include tips and advice on potting plants, spotting a weed and keeping your plants healthy from gardeners all over the UK. Sudocrem will also be donating one hundred growing kits to families all over the UK to kick start their growing projects.
“Right now, there are around 5 million children under the age of 10 who need activities to get them through the next few months,” says Alice Bamford, Sudocrem brand manager. “At Sudocrem, we want to give families a hand as best we can.”
I’ve got three of Sudocrem’s gardening kits to giveaway, with all the basics to kickstart your indoor and outdoor gardening projects.
To enter, simply do as many of the actions in the widget below as you can – the more you do, the better your chances of winning. The competition will close at 11.59pm on May 20th 2020 and full T&Cs apply.
Once you’ve done that, Sudocrem also has its own competition going on where you can win one of 5 x £100 gardening centre vouchers just by sharing your gardening pictures on social media – tag @Sudocrem, #BackToTheGarden & #SudocremBTTGcomp on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to enter.
