Gardening Competition Results – Best Overall Kept Garden
We had a great response to our Gardening Competition with over 20 entries to the four categories – Special Achievement, Most Original Feature, Best Hanging Basket and Best Overall Kept Garden.
We were very pleased to have the Head Gardener from Queen’s University Belfast, Paul Wallace, judging the competition for us this year. Paul was very impressed with the standard of the gardens and commented that it wasn’t an easy decision to pick winners!
We will be announcing the winner and highly commended for a different category each day this week.
Today we are announcing Best Overall Kept Garden
The winner is Marion Donnelly, Dungannon
The runner up is Martha McKinely, Rathmullan.
Highly commended certificates are awarded to;
Sonya Moran, Derry/Londonderry, Christine McAuley, Castlederg and Ruta Pudane, Newcastle.
On Friday we will feature pictures of some of the lovely gardens that took part in this year’s competition. Everyone who entered the competition has received a packet of seeds, kindly donated by Homebase in Derry~Londonderry.
No doubt our competition entrants will continue to use their green fingers and hopefully their efforts will inspire others to take up this (believe it or not!) therapeutic exercise.
