Are you up to this challenge? Tui & Resene think so!



Upcycle Garden Challenge – presented by Tui & Resene

We Kiwis are an ingenious bunch when it comes to creating something new out of not alot.

This year we are celebrating the Kiwi can-do attitude with our Upcycle Garden Challenge. We want you to create a small, colourful garden from upcycled objects with edible plants and colourful Resene paint and/or Resene wood stain colours incorporated in some way. Upcycled objects could include pallets, metal baths, bed heads – anything you can create a planter out of. Get those creative juices flowing and show us how one man’s trash really is another man’s treasure!

Winning prize
The winning garden will take away the grand prize of $500 Resene voucher, $500 Tui Products voucher and a $250 dinner voucher. The runner up receives $250 Resene voucher and a $250 Tui Products voucher.  All that enter are eligible for flower show medals, a certificate will be distributed to all successful exhibitions.

Who can enter?
Anyone!  This category is open to members of the public, interior/exterior designers, passionate ‘up cyclers’ horticulturalists or anyone with the imagination to create something special.  People can enter as individuals or group together to form a team.  An application form which includes the design and concept for your exhibit needs to be completed and a selection of successful applicants will be made by the NZFGS Event Director.

So what are you waiting for? Open that garage door and start digging! You never know what you might find to give that new lease of life! For more information, click the link here!
