Judges' comments

"I can see you being an excellent ambassador for horticulture. Your knowledge, skills and passion really came through and it provides comfort that the future of horticulture is in safe hands."

"A very knowledgeable articulate little lady."

"What a charismatic young gardener! Livvy’s obvious passion and enthusiasm, coupled with her in-depth knowledge of how plants grow (and indeed how to deter pests) make her a deserving winner. Any gardener that can even find joy in weeding deserves admiration in my book!"

"Livvy is a truly wonderful gardener. She has an ability to talk about plants with such authority and natural enthusiasm: full of plans, full of memories. She took us all along on her journey. A joy to watch."

"Livvy is an extraordinary gardener for her age, and a captivating and articulate presenter. The tour of her home garden had us all riveted. Well done Livvy!"
