We’re always amazed at the submissions you guys make for your homemade hanging basket and planting borders, and we really appreciate all of the photos and videos we receive on a daily basis.
This week we’re going to be looking at the student submissions for the best small gardens competition!
It always amazes us how these budding green fingered young adults have the time to do any gardening at all whilst studying, but you always manage to surprise us with the innovative and cost saving ways you manage to bring colour and greenery to your outdoor areas, which tend to brighten up even the dullest of student houses!
This weeks winner is from the University of Sheffield, in South Yorkshire, the United Kingdom (soon to be out of the EU, but we’ll leave that debate for another post!).

Location: 3 Dover Rd Lower, Sheffield, S11 8RH
Garden type: Patio
Award: Garden of the week
Reason: This garden stands out so much amongst the crowd! The use of potted plants around the exterior, mixed with the trellis, climbing plants such as clematis, and the sparing use of garden furniture has turned this into a wonderfully cozy outdoor space that any student would love to live in. We’re so proud of the work you’ve done, and we hope you enjoy your reward.
Sheffield is known for many things, but I think it’s safe to say that gardening is not traditionally one of them! We look forward to seeing some more submissions from you for garden of the week, and if you have any questions about this then leave them in the comments below!
