Now in its tenth year, it is time for the Blackberry Garden 'Plant of the Year' 2023 award. As ever this competition has been hotly contested by plants who had no idea they were being judged and could not care less when the results were announced.
Actually there are no categories, but it turns out that I seem to have a lot of pink in the garden these days.
Ok, its time for the runners up - and this was very hard to decide so lets start with 'most determind to grow'
Next up: 'darling I waited'
Second prize goes to 'gosh you are beyond expectations'
a favourite stepped in and snatched the crown. A favourite returning to past glories and making this her best flowering for many years.
Dear reader I present to you the Blackberry Garden Plant of the Year.......
Congratulations Waltzing Mathilda - Queen of Dahlias and Queen of my garden this year.
