GREEN-FINGERED Susan Withecombe is all smiles as she picks up her prize for winning this year’s Bloomin’ Marvellous garden contest.
Susan’s garden in Shenley Close, Fareham, beat 10 others that were short-listed by our gardening guru Brian Kidd during the competition.
Mr Kidd was blown away by its views, ponds and colourful flower beds. Susan and her partner Gordon Perry, 65, who lives opposite in Abbeyfield Drive, spent months getting the backyard in tip-top shape. The pair picked up £100 of gardening vouchers to spend at Garsons garden centre, in Titchfield, on Friday, September 21. Susan said: ‘We’re going to use the money to put plants around a new pond we want to build.’
