The owners of the best front garden in Stoke Poges, Wexham and Fulmer were presented with a trophy at Bells Hill Green on Saturday.

Stoke Poges, Wexham and Fulmer Horticultural Society was unable to hold its annual show this year for obvious reasons. But it did not stop judges making socially distant visits to the 12 gardens whose owners had entered its competition.

Chairman Ruth Rooley said: “It’s wonderful to have so many entries, all were worthy contenders and where they could easily be seen, they stood out from neighbouring gardens and brought joy to passers-by.”

Jon Homan, President Emeritus, added “The gardens are so different and so good it was difficult to differentiate so we have awarded joint second prize to Brian Jeans and Anne Wiggins. However, the winning garden stood out above all others – it is a garden in Fulmer owned by Bev and Andrew Nealon.”

The magnificent water feature, rockery, herb garden, wisteria, jasmine and clematis all helped clinch it - they combined to make a haven for birds, bees and butterflies.

The best 'hand out' fuchsia trophy was won by Antony Rodden.

Presenting the trophy, Jon Homan who received photographs of the entries, said: “ The three best were so close there was only a point in difference in the judging, congratulations to them all.”

Denis Collman's entry came second and Judy Markland's third.
