Has your garden had a good tidy up over the last 10 weeks? Send in a photo of your beautiful green space and win prizes from our sister website www.enjoygardeningmore.co.uk
The combination of lockdown and a sunny spring has, for many people, meant one thing - days spent in the garden.
Lawns have been mowed religiously, seeds planted and fences painted, with little else to do on the long weekends spent at home.
And as boring borders and unloved vegetables patches have sprung into life, we’d like to see the fruits of your labour.
We’ve launched a new competition to find the county’s Best Lockdown Garden and are encouraging you to send in your photographs.
Every day we’ll be showcasing your photos, and the winners will be judged by our Enjoy Gardening More head gardener Peter McDermott.

There are two categories to enter - gardens under 150 square metres, and those above 150 square metres.
André Langlois, editor of the Ham&High, said: “We know the nice weather has encouraged people out into their gardens over the last few weeks. “Not only is gardening a great hobby to keep us fit and active, but it can be a brilliant way to unwind and switch off from everything going on around us.
