Garden photo competition

I really enjoy the new scientist and perhaps your readers can wow the world with pics of our local indigenous gardens.. x sam

Our photo competition theme for September is Farms and Gardens.

Commercial farming and agriculture shape the landscape in unique ways. We all shape our own personal green spaces too. Our private gardens can be sanctuaries where privets provide privacy and nurtured flowerbeds bring colour to our homes. Urban spaces can be transformed too, bringing the great outdoors into the city where an increasing number of us now live. The plants, shrubs, trees and grass that we grow and maintain also provide important habitats for wildlife, both urban and rural.

From cow-filled pastures to garden allotments, combine harvesters to lawnmowers and manicured gardens to machine-harvested fields, send us your images that show off the best of these living spaces, shaped by human hands. The best entry will win a New Scientist goodie bag: a laptop bag that comes with a travelling cup and a set of New Scientist books. A gallery of entries will appear here.

The competition will close on 30 September at Midnight GMT and the winner will be announced in early November. Submit your photo here and head here for full terms and conditions.
