Best individual garden winners Mark and Sheila who had totally transformed their garden. The garden was very overgrown when they started, but now they’ve added paths, a pond for wildlife, flowers for the various seasons, summer vegetables and chickens for eggs. They shared “they both enjoy doing the garden it has taken a lot of work to get it to look like it does today, but it probably will have some changes if the future.”
