The autumn container contest is now closed, and I’ve picked the winners! Remember, there was a top prize of £500 worth of gardening goodies, including treats such as an RHS membership and a beautiful moss wall art.
The standard of entries was really outstanding, and I really appreciate you sending them all in. It wasn’t easy to pick a winner. I’ve actually picked a winner, three runners up (who each get £100 of gardening goodies), and then I have a few highly commended entrants, who each get a plant geek badge!
