Win a hamper

Fancy a stylish and functional picnic backpack worth pound;70? Each week, to accompany our summer series of Picnics through the Ages, we are offering readers a chance to win the Superior Backpack from, the internet gift company.

The backpack is lightweight and sturdy and includes insulated compartments to keep your picnic and drink cool, plates, wine glasses, stainless steel cutlery and cups, chopping board, and even salt and pepper pots.

To enter the competition just answer this question: what were honoured guests invited to plant, after the fad was started by King Edward? Send your answer marked Hamper by email to or on a postcard to Harvey McGavin, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX. The closing date for this week's competition is August 18. The winner of our fourth hamper (July 29 issue) is Amanda Searle of Cambridge.
