During the Summer we invited our green-fingered customers to show us their fantastic gardens to be in with the chance of winning £30 in gardening vouchers in our 2019 Gardening Competition!
We know our customers take pride in their gardens so we wanted to recognise your efforts by asking you to enter the 'Best Garden Area' competition with £30 in vouchers up for grabs.
We were looking for pictures that captured all the hard work and effort that so many customers put into their plot. The gardens could be a riot of colour with pots and planters, a communal area or have flower borders to rival Chatsworth!
We received some great entries to the competition and our judges on the Involved Tenants Group had a tough time deciding on a winner.
All entries were judged anonymously by the group and the lucky winner was Mrs Walker from Brackenfield who we presented with £30 in shopping vouchers!
Mrs Walker said, "Gardening is my passion. I grow a lot of different plants and swap them with neighbours. I grow a lot for charity and have recently sold lots of plants in the village at the Summer Fayre. Being outside makes me feel better.
"I have recently used plants from my garden at a wedding where I created 90 jam jars filled with flowers for the tables, as well as bouquets.
"I was so surprised to win the competition, it was a lovely letter to come home to saying that I'd won! I shall have a field day at the gardening centre now after winning this!"
