Gardens and gardening captured by a lens

The Lincolnshire Gardens Trust Photographic Competition 2010 brought in plenty of entries which made the judging a difficult but very enjoyable afternoon’s task for Mandy Fitzaden Gray of the Gardens Trust and Geoff Manners and Caroline Bingham of Lincolnshire Life.

A new ‘Tastes of Lincolnshire’ category for this year was won by Daniel Rollitt with a mouth watering picture of Victoria plums.

Winners were presented with their prizes at the Trust’s AGM which was held in November at the University of Lincoln’s Riseholme campus. Further information about the competition and the trust can be found at
