In April this year Tessa Jowell, the RHS and London 2012 launched The Great British Garden Competition. We want to celebrate the British passion for gardening and two budding gardeners will help design a garden that will sit within the new Olympic Park in east London.
The prize is an opportunity to work with the Olympic Delivery Authority’s world-class team of landscape architects and garden designers on the final design of the garden, and see it through implementation for the Games and remain in place as a legacy following the Games.
The winners are:
- Adult category: Rachel Read
- Children category: Hannah Clegg
We received 112 entries in the adult, and 88 in the 16 and under categories. Congratulations to both Rachel and Hannah.
