Need a recap? Entering is easy-peasy – simply follow Muddy Stilettos and Olive & Sage, snap a picture of your space for Instagram and add one of our Muddy hashtags (#MuddyPatio, #MuddyVegPatch, #MuddySundowner, #MuddyColour, #MuddyProject) for the chance to win a slice of the £1000 prize pot to spend online at lovely garden and homewares boutique Olive & Sage.
