Today’s spread of photos shows the latest entries from the county’s green-fingered gardeners and illustrates the amazing variety of gardens and the skills of those who create and care for them.

Diane Blakeley and Pete Fordham’s garden is packed with plants, enticing pathways and colour for all year round, while Helen Clement Smith’s decking is brimming with blooms.

Jill and Ron Johnson have a wide variety of trees and shrubs situated in and around a manicured lawn in a very relaxing environment, and Michaela Petri has used all the space she can in her small front garden to create colour with excellent use of containers – even a pair of boots.

Sheila Filby-Woznow’s garden only measures 10m by 9.5m but features decking, a decorated paved area with an attractive water feature centrepiece, and an array of colourful flowers including several varieties of climbers and specimen shrubs in pots.
