Enjoy Gardening More Head Gardener Peter McDermott is judging the entries and has a huge number of photos to analyse, assess and award marks to before deciding who takes away the prizes.

The winners will be announced in the week commencing July 6, 2020.

Today our gallery showcases more of the stunning work to transform front and back gardens into exciting oases of colour, peace and beauty during this unprecedented change to our lives caused by the panedemic.

Long hours of work – some of it back-breaking, some of it pleasurable – have gone into all the gardens entered for the competition, with some beautiful and ingenious designs making great use of small spaces, and large expansive flowing gardens where people have more space to play with – all of them colourful and packed with plants.

Among today’s pictures is Christine Renfro’s compact garden created for outdoor life, a place to meet friends and enjoy food and drink along with an easy to maintain selection of plants, while Ian Thorn’s garden has a tranquil pond with fish as its centrepiece surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, a lovely green oasis.

Michael Jackson’s garden also has a great pond with rockery edges filled with flowers, while Naomi Simons has a fun and funky terrace garden, making clever use of a what could have been an awkward space but looks great, and Trina Robus has a garden perfect for relaxing with summer house, seating and colourful suspended lounger with shade.
