Awards and Judge Comments

Lots of lovely, healthy plants, but no clear design or focus. Some hardsape, either rocks, wood or both, would help you anchor your planting design.

Karen Randall

What a lush layout of stem plants with the ferns to the left and right adding further interest. I feel the composition would benefit from some more pruning but the unkempt look is still appealing. I would have like to see the centre section pruned into a 'V' shape to help balance the layout.

George Farmer

A wonderfully appropiate title.
