Second prize this year and a £50 voucher went to Les Coombs, also from Surrey. Les’s very colourful display of single and double petunias alongside non-stop begonias were all purchased from Brookside Nursery as plug plants. Many congratulations Les!
The third place winner last year was Kashuf Mahmood from Bedfordshire. We met Kashuf at the Hampton Court Flower show this year, Kashuf visited our stand to say how delighted he was with the Trailing Petunia Easy Wave plug plants he had purchased from us and to show us some pictures of his stunning ‘flower wall’ We suggested that he entered the pictures into our photo competition we’re very pleased to see that he has won a £20 voucher. The pictures below sow Kashuf’s flower wall shortly after planting on 2nd June, then 2nd July and in full bloom on 25th August. Well done Kashuf!
