Our first ever Wellow Best gardens competition was a great success.

Judged by  Wayne Amiel (the BBC’s current Gardener of the Year) 13 gardeners put their gardens forward, based on the Chelsea Garden Show structure of Gold, Silver Gilt, Silver and Bronze awards.  Wayne was highly impressed , and having come expecting to award only a couple of Gold certificates, actually awarded seven of them.

The results were announced at our annual Garden Party that evening, presented by Wayne and Hort Soc President Alex Martin  – and here they are:
