Budding Gardeners 2016 Results
View the entries and results from the competition at RHS Garden Wisley
Over the May half-term 46 'out-of-this-world' mini show gardens popped up at RHS Garden Wisley for our annual Budding Gardeners competition.
Pupils and students from London and the South East were given the challenge of designing a one meter by one meter garden that fitted this year's theme - Rocket Science!
Over two planting days, Wisley was transformed to another universe as aliens, planets, rockets and several Tim Peakes were installed in the mini gardens.
Expert judges from the RHS and this year's sponsor, The Rotary Club of Guildford, awarded each garden with a gold, silver or bronze medal and chose the winners of six coveted awards. Throughout the May half-term visitors to RHS Garden Wisley were also invited to vote for their favourite garden which was awarded the People's Choice Award.
