Win a fruit tree and planting kit worth a total of £170 in our #HDLoveYourGarden competition

To celebrate the third year that Hedges Direct is supporting gardening makeover show Love Your Garden, we’re giving away three fruit trees and planting kits worth a total of £170.

We’re delighted to be once again supplying our products to the popular ITV programme, presented by Alan Titchmarsh. After providing Mature Cherry Laurel hedging in 2013, and mixed native instant hedging, English Lavender, Portuguese Laurel hedging and Box hedging in 2014, we continue our support this season by supplying six metres of Yew instant hedging to appear in episode three of the series, which airs on 7 July.

Creating your dream garden can take years of nurture, maintenance and care, but Love Your Garden provides a helping hand to those in need of a boost, more often than not with tear-jerking results. Last year our donated plants helped transform a wildlife garden at a hospice in Luton, using a combination of native instant hedging and Lavender. And our Box hedging helped surprise the owners of a garden in South London.
