Garden Competition 2019

Last year's garden competition was very successful and we received entries from all over the County. All our customers that entered had gardens that looked well loved and beautiful, and this made choosing an overall winner very hard for our Tenants' Forum judges.

What one of our judges said about the winner -

The winning garden showed a well-manicured front lawn with perfect edges. The surrounding boarders were well stocked with mature plants. The rear garden consisted of a summerhouse/shed a seating area and the borders around the garden were planted with a mixture of mature flowers and fruit trees, while the remainder is planted out with seasonal vegetables. Very traditional and perhaps we should all be returning to growing our own in these economic times.Congratulations to our winners.

Thank you to all that entered this competition.
