Allotment award winners 2016

None of us have an allotment to win awards - we just enjoy gardening and being outdoors on our plots growing the things we love.

However, the committee do feel it is good to commend those who tend their plots almost everyday.  Their time and effort shows in every cabbage, every strawberry and every flower…and that should be celebrated.  So this year, we asked one of the Haslemere committee to judge which plots should be celebrated as winners - the results are below:

If you are struggling to know what to do with your plot then I would urge you to take the time to visit these plots for inspiration - they are all very different but they all have something to admire.  It is great to see what can be achieved.

Congratulations to all our winners
