Believing in accessibility for all

Thank you and well done to everyone who entered the 2021 gardening competition. This year we had a record number of entries and it was fantastic to see all of the lovely gardens on social media. Well done to all involved. 🌻 This year we had some special categories for children, such as growing the tallest sunflower, and we hope to continue to grow and develop the competition to suit all.
