This is our favourite time of year, when we get to judge all the stunning entries to our competitions. However, this year we decided to do things a little differently and we asked you to help us pick the winning photos.
Michael Perry short listed each category down to his six favourites of which we then posted onto facebook. You then chose your favourite photo by hitting the like button, the one with most likes won. Simples!
Thank you to everyone who entered and big congratulations to all of our winners.
So here are you winning entries for our 2014 categories;
Indredibloom® competition (selected by Thompson & Morgan)
Lindsey Cooper – Harrogate
Lindsey used basil seeds from the same pack, same bag of compost, same size pots. However, used the Incredibloom® fertiliser in one pot. This is a wonderful reflection of our ground breaking plant feed.

Not sure I agree with the judging method. Much happier when it was done by a professional in the field. Those of us who NEVER ever touch or look at Facebook means we didn’t know anything about this process, or have any way to make our opinions known.
Could we at least see the 6 shots in each section so that we have some idea if our submissions may have (or may not have) been considered worthy of a vote???
Thank you very much for your comment. This was a new process we put into place this year so that we could create more interaction with our customers and for you to help in deciding the winning photo. We will take on board your comment regarding facebook, perhaps next year we could still ask our customers to vote for their favourite but on a different platform. We could ask our customers through a blog post, which can in turn be shared on social media. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and we will bare this in mind for next year. Best Wishes, Terri
Hi. I won the Incredibloom competition, but thought it may have included a little more info!! ie…. I used seeds from the same pack, same bag of compost, same size pots and the plants shown are Basil. My mum saw it and didn’t realise that it was the fertiliser called Incredibloom. She just thought you had called the photo Incredibloom.
Hope this helps
