The programme, sponsored by Bradstone, was launched in 2007 with the objective of bringing together experienced designers with upcoming talent. Each year, shortlisted applicants build a show garden for the Malvern Spring Gardening Show.
The winner will receive a free part-time mentoring and teaching programme from members of the Chris Beardshaw, Bradstone and Three Counties teams, and the opportunity to create an urban show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2012.
The deadline for applications is 1 October. All entrants must design a small show garden for the Malvern event reflecting on the CBMS theme of Atom, to celebrate UNESCO's International Year of Chemistry in 2011.
