Judge’s verdict: “​Inventive use of space with a great variety of produce and skilled use of companion planting. The plots are visually interesting with their mix of flowers and edible produce. The side banks have been put into production too. By placing the seating area decking in front of the poly tunnel entrance a minimum of growing space is sacrificed. The poly tunnel also provides shelter and warmth for the seating space.”
