oh well, never mindx


och well I never won anything in the gardening competition, not to worry, there is always next year……never, no way!!! I will never again enter a competition again, it just totally took the fun and enjoyment out of it for me, the deadline to have it all spick and span and gorgeous, competitions are defo not my thing, im sure lots of people love competitions and fair play to them but its not for me im afraid, ill just stick to doing it for my own enjoyment in the future x

my funky new raised beds

and ma baggy jean alpine strawberry planter!!

well done on entering. I agree, I only garden for my own enjoyment. It would be too stressful I think to enter any competitions. I get a lot of positive comments from passers-by when I am in the front garden and that's enough for me!

I couldn't do with the stress of entering competitions either. Mine is for my own enjoyment and to give pleasure to passers-by. Well done for giving it a go though.

Don't give up - if everyone who didn't win stopped entering it wouldn't be much of a competition. It doesn't mean your garden hasn't been appreciated - it surely was as its very pretty. But in any garden competition loads of lovely ones have to be unplaced. I love your strawberry planter!

A shame you didn't win but please don't loose heart. Competition isn't for everyone and as been said above I don't think I could do it either.
Those beds are great and your strawberry planter is very innovative!

I entered last year, never again. Found out some of the Judges were the office girls who had never done any gardening in their lives, and didnt know an Acer from
a Dandelion !

I'm not a competitive person either, so I don't blame you for feeling like you do. I leave competitions to those who enjoy them.
Your garden is very pretty, and I like your little windy wicker fence :o)
Love the raised beds too - Very colourful :o)
