TRESA FRONT GARDEN COMPETITION 2018, and the winners are…

With over 400 good garden certificates issued in this year’s TRESA FRONT GARDEN COMPETITION, there were plenty of interesting entries for the judges to consider.

After much deliberation, there were 3 worthy winners, who have now all received their awards and prizes for a gardening job very well done!

Congratulations to everyone who won a certificate of merit and thanks also to our sponsors FIG1, GREENWOODS and TOTTERDOWN CANTEEN.

The winners, and judges’ comments, are as follows -:

Best Front Garden, sponsored by GREENWOODS –  23 Upper Street.


This front garden is very small but contains a good variety of planting achieved by a design with differing heights whilst retaining good proportionality. The colour combinations of both flowers and leaves were good producing a harmonious effect and an overall very pleasing appearance.

Designed for Summer, sponsored by FIG1 – 24 Stevens Crescent.


An exuberant garden of summer flower planting. Again there was good harmony in the colour combinations with an amazing bank of blooms again achieving some height for a small front garden.

Family Fun, sponsored by Totterdown Canteen – 17 Oxford Street.

This is a very pleasing garden with nice floral planting livened by the addition of some cheerful gnomes, sure to entertain both adults and children.
