Congratulations to all the Best in Category Winners for 2022
Overall Competition Winner
and Best Front Garden
This beautiful cottage garden is buzzing with pollinators and is Susan's pride and joy. The judges felt this was a place they didn't want to leave as it was so peaceful with good quality plants, a variety of texture and height and a blaze of colour.
Ian Knee and Charlotte Waitt
A well kept allotment with quality plants that were well kept. A good variety of planting and great theme interpretation too.
Best Neighbourhood Project
Headway House Community Garden
In addition to their own garden space, Headway have been working with local residents on an area long neglected which is now a haven for wildlife and a calming place to go and sit. The space is now well used by all when previously it hadn't been visited for over a year.
Best Site for Nature Conservation
Clandon Wood Nature Reserve and Natural Burial Site
A previous winner in this category, Clandon Wood Reserve and Natural Burial site goes from strength to strength with an impressive list of over 100 species of fauna and flora to be found in the area.
Best Pub in Bloom
The Royal Oak
The most impressive use of not only a small space, but a tricky space. Peat free planting that makes the most of the space with different textures and heights. Sustainable planting of perennials bought locally and lovingly maintained by the manager.
Best Container Garden
This container garden is full of good quality planting with a riot of colour and variety of textures. Very impressive the house stands out in the street.
Best Garden for Wildlife
Lisa Firth Homestead Flowers
Best Themed Entry
Wonersh and Shamley Green C of E Primary School
The children and teachers had put in such a huge effort in creating their garden to the theme of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee they are deserved winners.
A fantastic array of planting that buzzes with pollinators together with a pond and much visiting nocturnal wildlife - fully deserving of a category win.
Young Gardener Award
Whilst the adults lead in this garden, the children tend the plants and enjoy spending time in the garden as part of Allotment Church. This is a great project to encourage young people to get into gardening
