And the winners are....

Everyone that has entered this year's Jacksons Show gardens competition should have had an email from me by now, giving feedback on their design and thanking them for their entry.

I really would like to say a very big thank you to everyone again, the standard of the designs this year was outstanding, and it really made it very difficult for us to pick the two winners.

But we did, and I'm sorry for those of you that got a little impatient waiting to hear, but I really did want to let everyone know individually.

Anyway, enough waffle!

This year's winners are Alison Coxhead with her lovely "Natural Reflections" garden and Kari Beardsell - Blue Bridge Garden Design and her wonderful "Within the Weave" garden.

Well done both of you.

I'm looking forward to getting the build organised and putting images of the winning design and some of the other interesting ones we got up on line throughout the week.

Jacksons Show gardens competition news

I’m happy to say we’ve managed after a lot of mulling over, lip chewing and difficult deliberating, to choose the two winning designs for this year’s show gardens.

Although I won’t be making an announcement on who the winners are just yet – last year I emailed everyone individually to let them know what was happening and give them feedback on their design. This does take quite a lot of time, as there are a lot of you, but I think it’s a much nicer way of doing this than just saying so and so has won!

So please bear with me as I start that process and hopefully by Monday I will be making the announcement, via twitter, the show gardens blog and on the web site.

Deadline for Jacksons show gardens competition

It was deadline day for the third annual Jacksons show gardens design competition yesterday the 20th March. So the last week has seen a flurry of communications from garden designers calling and emailing me with last minute queries and some panics! We now have a large and exciting looking pile of designs to look through throughout the next few days and hope to make an announcement by the end of the week – or early next week if it gets tricky! 

Thanks very much to everyone who has entered and put all that effort and worry into coming up with their designs. Louise
