Now that spring is here, we're giving you the chance to win a beautiful book about the power of gardens and nature!

In a war-torn city, a little girl looks after the last garden - but everyone is leaving, and soon she has to go, too. The garden has been left alone, so will it ever bloom again?

Well, the seeds begin to scatter through the city, and roots begin to take hold...

Inspired by war gardens across the world and throughout history, The Last Garden is a gorgeous book from Rachel Ip and Anneli Bray.

Touching on issues of conflict and migration but full of hope, it's a really special story, told thoughtfully alongside stunning illustrations.

We have three copies to give away, so if you fancy winning one, simply tell us about your favourite flower or plant and leave your details in the box below. But don't delay, because this competition will close at 11pm on Tuesday, 27 April. Good luck!
