Our popular lockdown garden competition might now be closed - but we had so many fantastic last-minute entries, we just had to share them with you.

With the coronavirus restrictions leaving people with more time to tend to their back yards, we invited you to send in pictures of how you had spruced up your gardens during the lockdown.

Helped by the warm and sunny weather, you have certainly been busy - and the results have been fantastic, with the EADT and Star publishing photos of entries up until June 20.

The closing date for submissions was on June 15 - but we had so many entries we were unable to show you at the time that seemed too good to waste.

Akhila Venkitachalam’s colourful garden, which is over 150sq m in size, looks perfect for sitting outside in during warm weather - with plenty of lush green grass.

Geoff Robinson has a courtyard with a table and chairs, alongside lots of lovely plants.

And Sandra and Geoff Hindle’s garden has steps up to a courtyard packed with flowers and a shed.
