The Easter online competition challenges youngsters 11 or under to draw their fantasy fairy door, with the overall winner being used as inspiration for a new door in the gardens.
There are two categories: six and under and seven to 11. Each winner will be given an annual family pass to Furzey Gardens and the overall winner will be used as the inspiration for a real-life door.
Furzey Gardens is currently closed in line with the coronavirus outbreak guidelines, but has long been popular with families with young children for its charming trail of more than 40 doors hidden within the informal 10-acre woodland garden.
During the winter a number of doors were renovated and new ones added, meaning there are even more doors to discover. Through this competition, children now have a chance to leave a lasting mark on this special place by designing their own door to join the others.
Furzey Gardens is part of Minstead Trust, a charity supporting people with learning disabilities to live more independent and fulfilled lives. People with learning disabilities work in the tea rooms, help to maintain the gardens and raise plants for sale in the nursery, learning key skills in the process.
