Judges comments…
The conversion from the original derelict site to the Friends’ Garden we saw is an outstanding achievement. The plant selection is excellent as proved by the lack of distress in a difficult year. The natural methods of pest control is proving successful with a natural balance having been achieved to maintain control. A cohesive and committed group of friends with a sense of direction and love both for the Friends’ garden and Roundhay Park.
Feedback for consideration …
We look forward to seeing the maturity of recent planting in the new bed area you have started at the entrance to the Park opposite the Friends Garden.
Thanks to everyone for all your hard work…and well done!
