The winners of Thompson & Morgan’s 2013 competition winners have been announced! There were 8 categories to enter this year and the judges had a very tough time deciding on the final winner in each one.
Top prizes were £100 or £250 in Thompson & Morgan vouchers and runners-up each won £10 worth of vouchers.
Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up and thank you to everyone who sent in photos. Here are the winning entries:
Plant portrait of any Thompson & Morgan product
Sarah Bush, Liverpool
Sarah’s close-up of a petunia bloom covered in drops of water was a clear winner in this category.
Petunia ‘Purple Tower’
Russell Good, Huntingdon
We like to give our customers a challenge now and again, and this year we asked who could grow the tallest petunia ‘Purple Tower’! Russell wins £250 in Thompson & Morgan vouchers.
Richard Laker, Colchester
Richard’s stunning basket of begonia ‘Inferno’ gets first prize in this category, winning him £100 in Thompson & Morgan vouchers.
Lauren Witt, Braunton
Lauren’s amazing display of towering tree lilies really impressed the judges.
Your beds and borders
Christine Smith, Bury St. Edmunds
The judges felt that the luscious planting scheme and fabulous colours of Christine’s borders deserved the top prize in this category.
Your patio garden
Christine Harrison, Nuneaton
We asked the entrants in this category to show off their patio gardens, and Christine’s patio looks the perfect place to spend an evening relaxing…
Vegetables and fruit
Alexese Scott, Colchester
With the good summer that we’ve had, the judges were hoping for some really good harvest photos – they certainly weren’t disappointed!
Baskets and hanging containers of any Thompson & Morgan product
Kevin Joseph, Bristol
Kevin’s baskets were absolutely dripping with gorgeous flowers and a well-deserved winner in this category.
Our photo competitions are closed for this year, but we’ll announce the next ones in spring 2014. In the meantime, why not have a go at guessing how many seeds are in the giant pumpkin?
