SGS Launches Competition to Find Britain’s Best Bush

SGS is running a competition to find Britain’s Best Bush, with the winner receiving a lifetime supply of hedge trimmers!

With the gardening season in full swing what better time is there than now to dust off the overalls, whip out the snips and don the shears for plucking away the overgrown shrubbery and giving your bush a good summer trim?

In the midst of all this green-fingered landscaping, SGS Engineering is offering you the chance to submit your bushy entries and also vote for which of these you think is Britain’s best – all to be in with a chance of winning a lifetime supply of hedge trimmers*. A great prize which will in turn ensure you’re able to keep your bush trim and pristine at all times for anyone who comes to sneak a peek at it!

How does it all work?

If you feel like you’ve got a smart and shapely bush and you want to show it off, then all you need to do is tweet us at @SGSEngineering with the hashtag: #RateMyBush. Alternatively, if you’re a little shy about your personal topiary, you can always send us your bushes via email: [email protected]

We will then select a shortlist of the most impressive photos, which will be opened up to a public vote to decide once and for all, who owns Britain’s Best Bush.

What is the Prize?

As aforementioned, the prize that’s on offer is a lifetime supply of SGS hedge trimmers, to help you keep on top of your bush for the foreseeable future!
