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:
Gold Certificate and Overall Best Garden in Wellow :
Di Dalgliesh and Jonathan Knight for The Crest.
Annette and Ian Harris for Water Meadows
Annie and David Scotland for Manor Barn
Jill and Colin Tremellen for St Julian’s Well
Clover and Richard Holland for Wellhope Knowe
Julia and Jonathan Wyld for White Ox Mead Farm
Alice Harper and Tom Jones for The Maltings
Silver Gilt Certificates:
Justine and Billy Wright for Wellow Farm
Jenny Barr for Honeysuckle Cottage
Olga Shepherd for Home Farm, White Ox Mead
Andrew and Fiona Pitt for Middle Twinhoe Barn
Sue and Chris Wordsworth for Courtland House
Caroline and Nigel Thomas for Manor Court Cottage
