Somerset Gardens Trust Competition – To celebrate Somerset gardens the Somerset Gardens Trust have launched a Gardens Competition to find the best Somerset garden. Somerset is rich in wonderful gardens which are rarely, if ever, open to the public. They are in country, villages and towns and vary enormously in geography, size, style, age, soil and planting.  What they all have in common is the passion and love of their owners which is clearly visible for everyone to see. Somerset is blessed by its temperate climate enabling a wide variety of plants and trees to be grown. Somerset Gardens Trust would like to celebrate these gardens with their owners and make them better known.  Submission of entry form – 16 September 2019 to 20 April 2020 see website: www.somersetgardenstrust.org.uk
