I loved the whole experience. The photographer was great, and really inspired confidence. To see our garden on the cover of the subscribers' edition of the magazine was extraordinary.

To see my garden as a double page spread in the magazine was just the best reward for doing something I love. And to know that a panel of experts had really liked what I had achieved.

Winner: Helen Rushton

When I thought about how many really good gardens there are in the UK, I thought my chances were slim. I hope seeing the gardens that have won will encourage others to enter next time, it has been a lovely experience from start to finish.
