Dunckley is hoping to exhibit a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2010.
The teenager, who received a silver medal for his A Desert's Delight garden at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July, is planning a garden that incorporates al fresco dining and an outdoor kitchen.
He told HW: "I'm struggling because I'm looking for sponsorship. I really want to exhibit a show garden at Chelsea because it is the best flower show in the world."
He is looking for around £100,000 for a 22m x 10m garden, ideally from a firm in the food industry to reflect his ideas for a design.
The ambitious youngster — who will begin studying for A-levels in design technology, photography and IT next month — also runs his own nursery business producing around 10,000 plants a year.
