HERE’s your chance to win something completely different for your windowsill or conservatory – an amazing collection of six exotic and unusual houseplants we have dubbed Bizarre Beauties.

You can win one of 10 of these collections, worth £20 each.

They come with full cultural directions from the family firm of Dibleys Nurseries at Llanelidan, near Ruthin, in North Wales, winner of 100-plus gold medals at Chelsea and other top shows.

The Bizarre Beauties are:

Alsobia dianthiflora, velvety leaves and pure white, fringed flowers on small plants which send out runners and quickly spread.

Nematanthus Christmas Holly, known as the clog plant for its pouch-shaped blooms which are bright red.

Begonia Escargot, a foliage plant with swirled leaves of olive green and silver, up to 30cm (1ft) long.

Begonia Flo Belle Moseley, long purplish leaves like angels’ wings, spotted pink, and rich rose-pink blooms.

Impatiens niamniamensis, nicknamed the parrot plant for its beak-shaped red and yellow flowers.

Codonatanthus Tambourine, a trailing plant with pink flowers shading to cream.
