Two greenfingered gardeners from Ripon are celebrating after they were named joint winners of Harrogate Borough Council’s annual tenants’ gardening competition.

John Wilson and Steve Pigott won the prize in recognition of their horticultural efforts in the communal garden of their homes at Bondgate Court.

One of the judges, Geoff Scurrah, said the garden was definitely a “gold standard” garden.

The two men have designed, built, planted and self-funded the communal garden to make it attractive for all those who live at Bondgate Court.

The garden has more than 150 potted plants, a handmade water feature and a seating area.
