patioSPRING is on its way – and we have TEN colourful mini-gardens for your patio or courtyard to be won.

The prizes contain sturdy metal boxes 19.5cm x 15cm x 9cm (7.5 x 6 x 3.5in) in Johnsons Seeds livery, with hinged, snug-fitting lids to keep seeds dry and safe from pests.

Each tin contains seed packets of six varieties of dazzling annual flowers and five mouth-watering vegetables.

The flowers are Busy Lizzy Colour Mix F2; Lobelia Mrs Clibran, blue with a striking white eye; Petunia Mosaic Mixed F2, classic container favourite; Verbena Compact Mixed, with clusters of bright blooms on spreading plants; Coleus Rainbow Mixed, with many bright foliage colours; and Marigold Naughty Marietta, long-flowering with large, single blooms.

The vegetables are beetroot Kornett, a high-quality round baby beet; carrot Amsterdam Forcing 3 (Sprint), an improved strain of the established early variety; Mixed Spicy Salad Leaves, expensive in the shops yet easy to grow at home; radish Nelson, a quick-growing French Breakfast type, scarlet with white tips; tomato Tumbling Tom Red, tasty and reliable, fruiting prolifically when well-fed in containers.

To enter the competition, answer this question: How are seeds kept safe and dry in the Johnsons’ seed tins?
