Organisers of this year's re-launched March Gardens Competition have hailed it a blooming success and are hoping it will now flourish in years to come.
The competition was organised by keen gardeners Maria and Poul Nielsen-Bom who were regular entrants in previous years. They also open the lush garden at their home in Henson Road, March, for charity.
They were supported in re-launching the competition, which has not been run for the past few years, with the help of former March mayor Councillor Robert Skoulding.
The competition consisted of four categories plus an overall winner attracted green-fingered residents across the town.
The judging panel spent the weekend of July 9 and 10 judging the entrants before agreeing on the winners.
On Wednesday night the entrants were all invited to a presentation evening where the winners were announced and the certificates were awarded to all those who took part.
The celebration was held at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel and Poul and Maria together with representatives of sponsors in each category:
