The Acis in Bloom judge Colin Bates said: In a good garden, I look for colour but I also like to see a bit of grass and a nice bit of green.

“There needs to be a good condition of the plants and leaves too.

“The layout also needs to look smart and well presented with no litter or mess.

“I love seeing all the wonderful gardens of Acis and it is amazing to see what people can achieve.”
