At Sunday’s Picnic in the Park at Warley Woods, We Are Bearwood & our judge Liz Culver (last year’s winner!) announced the winners of the Bearwood Front Gardens Competition 2016.  And what a long list of winners! We wanted to give more opportunity for all different types of gardening talent to win so we increased the number of categories and spread the winnings more widely.

If you’d like to view the beautiful gardens our entrants have created, we’ve got a couple of maps for you after the list of winners: a map of the winners only and also a map of all gardens entered into the competition.  Enjoy!

As ever, thank you so much to our sponsors, including Bearwood-based business Urban Herbs who sorted out an extra prize for us (see ‘Judges Special’ below).

So without further ado, a drum roll please, for the Bearwood Front Gardens Competition 2016 Winners:
