Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I work as an environmental educator, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood and I also volunteer as a Master Composter and hens@home mentor with Garden Organic. We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun.

Giveaway! RHS Hampton Court Flower show tickets/Ecover Garden Pack




As I said yesterday I am very excited to be going to the fantastic RHS Hampton Court Flower Show in July, thanks to Ecover UK giving me two tickets.

I can't wait to look around the Inspire Zone and see The Ecover Garden, as well as the inspirational Ecover planters that have been designed by eight gardening celebrities.

I also can't wait to see all the other wonderful show gardens and displays. I am so looking forward to going, especially as I am taking my one of my best friends with me so we should have a wonderful day out. AND I am going to meet up with some other gardening bloggers when I get there :-)

Thank you so much Ecover UK :-)

So, I'm going to go and have a great time, would you like to go to RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, the world’s largest flower show, as well? And take a friend? Yes?


Well, two of you could.

 
I have two pairs of tickets to RHS Hampton Court Flower Show to give away, thanks to my lovely friends at Ecover UK, who are sponsoring the Inspire Zone at the show.  Each pair of tickets are for any one chosen day between 9th-14th July.  

The RHS Hampton Court Flower Show is on from 9th-14th July and you can find out where it is and more about it here 

And for a third person  as a runner up prize, an Ecover Gardening Pack





You can’t buy a ‘Garden Pack’ from Ecover, they are selling it as an exclusive at Hampton Court. It contains  Heavy Duty Hand Cleaner, Washing Up Liquid and Compost Bags

    1. Hi Sue
      Am very pleased to be given the tickets by Ecover - also to go with my friend, - she works very hard, long hours so I am so glad she could come with me.

      Not been to Hampton Court, no - its a long way to go from here. Go to Malvern (of course) and been to Tatton and Chelsea in the past.

  18. Four reasons why I would like to win the Hampton Court flower show tickets.

    1. We live a short bus ride away so no problem with transport so really could make it.

    2 As some one with COPD I use Ecover products because they are unperfumed so I don't cough.
    Ŷ
    3 I think husband and I bought a load of soft fruit from you and your daughter, then aged about ten. We were staying at Holme Lacey and wanted to take fresh products back to London with us.

    4. I have been a follower of yours for some time, I think you have kindly commented on my blog too.
