Judge Rachel de Thame and National Trust's city gardener, Sean Harkin, awarded medals to 18 show gardens in Manchester city centre, designed and created for Dig the City.
The garden voted best in show was Hulme Community Garden Centre's edible tunnel which impressed judges with its attention to detail and use of vertical growing which they praised for demonstrating how to grow your own within the smallest of urban spaces.
Runner up was Ordsall Hall's heritage garden which draws on Ordsall Hall's Tudor history and showcases growing methods that you can use at home, on the allotment or in small plots to grow heritage vegetables.
Rachel de Thame and Sean Harkin judged 12 gardens in the 'city grow and eat' and 'city garden' categories and the remaining six 'grow anywhere' gardens will be judged by TV gardener Diarmuid Gavin on 9 August.
