Hello Everyone,

What pain points do you have in your gardening day that you wish there was a solution for? What 'better mousetrap' do you wish someone would invent?

We are going to be holding a competition for kids up to age 15 (and I guess their parents!) with a theme of Gardening solutions for Gardening problems.

Well, when you consider ALL the things gardener does and ALL the things a gardener has to consider to start then maintain a pretty patch of sorts, there may be a lot of things that can be done to make life in the garden easier. It will be fun to see what the kids come up with given that we can tell them what some gardeners would like.

Someone once got sore knees from weeding and came up with a weeding cushion ... someone thought about raised beds ... someone thought of hanging containers with saucers attached ... there are many many examples.

What would be on your wish list? Let us know. Who can say what the kids might suggest as a solution?

Hope to hear from you - cheers
