Thank you and well done to everyone who entered our 2020 Gardening Competition. This year, due to the Government guidance, the panel were unable to visit the gardens in person and judged the entries by photos, videos and by live video calls on Zoom.
Our panel (including our Environmental Champions and Jane, our tenant gardening guru) finally picked these winners and runners-up below.
I have to congratulate every gardener who entered the competition on your heroic efforts to get things growing and flowering in your gardens, patios, windowsills and containers. This has been an extraordinary six months, lockdown since March and garden centres shut. The weather unpredictable, records broken, heatwaves and not to mention the heaviest rainfall in February for years!
However, you all managed to achieve some stunning gardens and veg patches which made judging as always, very difficult, and it was very close in all categories. Once again well done to everyone and I am already looking forward to next year!
