Awards and Judge Comments

A joyful explosion of healthy growth. But from a design perspective, it needs a little more definition to the planting.

Karen Randall

Impressive jungle-style layout with good use of colour and various textures. Super plant health too! Some more foreground space would have been nice to enhance the feeling of depth, as currently the layout appears a little two dimensional. Consider less plant species to avoid a "confusions of flavours".

George Farmer

An ode to plantsmanship.
