I was approached to take part in Heinz Tomato Ketchup ‘Grow Your Own’ campaign, which couldn’t be any more perfect for us.We have been living here for two years now, previously we were in a two bedroom flat for 12 years.We all craved for our own garden with space to grow our own fruit, veg and salad crops.It’s been hit and miss but me and the kids are having fun learning how things grow and not grow.This are the courgettes we grew last year.I think we harvested two before the slugs ate the rest.
UK SPRINGS TO LIFE WITH THE ARRIVAL OF MINIATURE GARDENS
– Heinz Tomato Ketchup encourages families to ‘Grow Their Own’ this spring
For the fourth year of the ‘Grow Your Own’ project Heinz Tomato Ketchup is calling on families up and down the country to get creative and plant their own Heinz tomato seeds. This year entrants will be in with a chance of having their home-grown tomatoes made into an iconic bottle of Heinz Tomato Ketchup, personalised exclusively for them.
Residents of London, Manchester, Cardiff, Brighton, Bristol and Birmingham will be surprised and delighted with these colourful gardens that bring the joys of spring to people around the country. Kitted out with miniature benches, wheelbarrows, bicycles and picket fences the miniature creations draw attention to the beauty of UK gardens and help families enjoy growing their own food together and learn a little bit more about tomatoes along the way.
Chris Isaac, Brand Manager for Heinz Tomato Ketchup said “Through the ‘Grow Your Own’ campaign we’re spurring on families to get involved with planting tomato seeds themselves and with the competition this year there’s an added incentive to get planting. We’re really excited to see the results from this and hopefully the winner will be delighted with the outcome.”
To enter the competition*, families need to upload pictures of their efforts to the official Heinz UK Facebook page to be in with a chance of being that one lucky winner. Chosen at the end of August, the winner and their tomatoes, will be picked up by Heinz Tomato Ketchup and transported to Heinz’s Culinary and innovation Centre to be produced. The winner will then receive a special version of the classic glass bottle filled with their home grown Heinz Tomato Ketchup, complete with a unique personalised label.
There will also be a number of runners up prizes, with gardening hopefuls having the chance to win high quality gardening tools – such as watering cans, wheelbarrows, trowels and gardening gloves – plus much more!
