Awards and Judge Comments

A lovely, well tended garden. You've clearly put some effort into arranging your plants, but the the arrangement is too symetrical, and ends up looking static. It's fun when plants flower in the tank, isn't it?!

Karen Randall

Impressive plant growth but the composition is too symmetrical.
