They’re all winners
The Best Kept Garden competition
With things hotting up outside, keeping the garden watered, fed and weeded is no picnic. But a group
of hardy residents have been sticking it out despite the heat and dry weather. Now they can truly celebrate the fruits of their labour.
bpha’s fourth annual Best Kept Garden competition has been in full swing. Our seven judges have been put through their paces with 26 nominations and 11 finalists to consider. This year’s competition attracted a range of entries – from private and communal gardens through to small spaces and vegetable plots.
Congratulations to our winners below – who each receive a £50 gift voucher and to the runners up who win a £25 gift voucher.
