Plot on a Plate competition - design and photograph a mini garden or landscape
The Chelsea Physic Garden, founded in 1673, is running a tiny garden competition that’s so big, it’s gone global.
Plot on a Plate is open to anyone – professionals, amateurs and kids. It involves creating a miniature garden or landscape on a dinner plate using natural and/or artificial materials. Including miniature people or animals, in the landscape is optional, however it does help to trick the mind into believing the landscape is real.
Anything is possible. You could create a natural-looking landscape or something that’s pure fantasy, complete with lolly pop trees.
In New Zealand, residents in several Arvida communities are using their imaginations to create tiny worlds on a plate. Entering the competition is simple – entries can be emailed or uploaded to Instagram or Twitter using a hashtag.
