NS&I ran a competition to find novel fruit and vegetable gardens. The three best entrants were each given £5,000 to create their gardens, which were then exhibited at BBC Gardeners’ World Live at the NEC in Birmingham.
At the show, Melissa Jolly’s ‘Salad Bar Garden’ was declared the overall winner. The garden is built around a wooden circular unit that doubles up as an area for potting plants. The table has space underneath for tools.
At the show, the garden was also awarded an RHS silver medal. Melissa said: "This is the first show garden I have built and I have really enjoyed putting it together."
