Suffolk’s gardeners have sent us another incredible selection of green spaces for our Lockdown garden competition.

The time and energy dedicated to every aspect of our entries is clear to see, with carefully curated collections of potted plants competing against perfectly prunes bushes for a chance to win hundreds of pounds in gardening vouchers.

The care and attention is plain to see in Francis Leeks’ garden, with ornaments carefully arranged around a pristine mowed lawn.

Neil and Saide Watts made the most of last week’s sunshine to get a glorious photo of their garden and their topiary handiwork.

Opting for a more personal look, gardeners Nigel Hunt and Jane Popham have filled their spaces with a huge variety of plants to attract a swathe of insects and wildlife, along with ponds for tadpoles soon to become frogs.

Tucked alongside his cobbled path, Ross Harrison has opted for a hammock in a garden bursting with colour and greenery.

And Suzie and Richard Carr have shared a picture of their waterside garden seating, two wooden chairs looking over their pond as the sun begins to dip in the sky.
