If you are entering this competition and I hope you are, I have defined the categories with more detail.
When sending in your photos please state what category it is in by saying 1, 2, 3 etc
We are limiting it to just 3 photos each household they can all be from one category or 3 different ones. 
If you have a great photo of something in the garden that is not covered below send it in and I will put it on the website, it can be a bird or a funny shaped vegetable or even a selfie, just do it. This will not count against your entries.
The categories are as follows PHOTO'S ONLY



 1.  A pot with a single FLOWER plant in, any size of pot can be used. 

2. A pot with a multiple selection of  FLOWER plants in, any size of pot can be used
3. A Hanging Basket or wall mounted basket or container with flower
4. A Vase containing cut flowers from your own garden, any size vase that you would use as a table decoration can be use
5. A photo of a single flower, this can be a tall flower, or a large or small bloom, it can be in amongst several other flowers so long as one bloom is dominant
6. Longest runner bean, this must be shown along with a ruler so we can see the length (we know how you gardeners like to exaggerate)
7. A group of 3 tomatoes shown in a row so that the size can be seen placed on a  ten pound note
8. Carrots a group of 3 shown in a row so that the size can be seen placed on a  ten pound note.

If you are not sure of anything either contact myself or send in what you have but don’t be too critical of yourselves as it a bit of fun (serious Fun).
Don't forget to take your photo’s  when your plants are at their best, you can send me your photos at any time and I will organise them. I will give each photo a number and put all photos on the website on different days in the first week of August. After the judging I will put names against the photos in the second week of August and announce the winners
