Our annual garden competition aims to reward tenants who, by taking pride in their garden, make a real difference to the communities they live in, and this year’s event was hailed another blooming success with additional categories, including a children’s award, attracting more entrants than ever.
Congratulations to all of the winners in, what was once again, a very hard fought competition showcasing some incredibly impressive gardens. In fact, the standard of entries was so high that our judges insisted on runners-up prizes across almost all of the categories.
A huge thank you goes out to everyone who took part, as well as our two judges; keen gardener and Resident VOICES Chair John Bell, and Michael Gourlay, Chairman of the Dalgety Bay Horticultural Society and Caley Medal Winner.
Both John and Michael did an absolutely fantastic job in what proved a really difficult competition to judge, given just how fantastic so many of the entries were.
Our thanks also to the following businesses who kindly donated prizes for the winners and helped to make this event possible; your support is much appreciated:
- The Plant Market / Growforth
