The winner of the Fine & Country garden competition has been announced
Thank you to all those who entered the Fine & Country Garden Competition 2015. We received a host of stunning and unique gardens this year and we are now able to reveal the winner!

Chosen by Martyn Cox, gardening journalist for the Mail on Sunday, the winning garden is owned by Mr & Mrs Green and is a celebration of wildlife and colour.

Martyn said, “I was very impressed by the high standard of entries in this year’s Fine and Country Garden Competition, which made picking an overall winner very difficult. There were large country gardens and smaller city plots, flower filled spaced and striking architectural gems. All had their attributes and were obviously cherished by their owners.

"However, the plot created by Mr & Mrs Green stood out to me. Their average sized, suburban plot is well stocked with choice plants that have been selected carefully to provide colour and interest all year round – there are winter and spring flowering bulbs, summer perennials and plants to provide a splash of autumn colour. All have been weaved together skilfully to ensure a constantly changing display that delights all of the senses.

"Mr & Mrs Green’s front garden is larger than the back, and can be seen clearly from the road. According to the couple, people passing by often stop and talk to them about the garden. This is great. I like the idea that their creation might provide inspiration for others in the local area and helps to foster a sense of community spirit. But what I really love about this garden is its simplicity. There’s no fancy design features. No bells and whistles. There are beds chock-a-block with plants, a small lawn, raised pond and a box parterre, with winding paths that add a sense of mystery – you really don’t know what’s around the corner.

"To put it simply, it’s the kind of garden where I would like to spend some time.”

Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Green who have won two tickets to the dazzling RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016 and the title of the best Fine & Country Garden 2015.
