The closing date for entries was the end of September, Photos were independently judged in November.

 

The 2014 Amberol Photo Competition was judged in October/November, the winner was Terry Bane with a photo taken at Shrewsbury Castle of Up The Pole Baskets in and complementing a summer bedding display, Terry was awarded 1000 worth of Amberol products as the winning prize.

 

Terry decided that 500 should be used in Norwich replacement planters mainly at The Assembly House and 500 for Shrewsbury in Bloom's Stan Sedman M.B.E. to use to help supply planters to a Shrewsbury school Stan is closely working with.

 

Stan and Terry have been great friends for many years, Terry donated 500 of his 2008 winning photo competition to sheltered housing in Shrewsbury at Edgefield Green and Vine Close for the residents to plant up and continue their excellent horticultural and community spirit as part of the RHS Its Your Neighbourhoods..

 

This is the fifth time Terry has been successful in Amberol's photographic competition, Terry's photos have won first place twice before and as runner up twice before winning over 4000 worth of hanging baskets and troughs used in many community projects in Norwich, Shrewsbury and Swainsthorpe.

TERRY'S TRAVELS

 

During my travels I am always keen and interested to see all types of annual, perennial and sustainable horticultural displays, baskets, planters and containers and Trees.

 

I particularly study the plants used, types, colours, foliage  and aim to gauge their maintenance and most important performance.

 

Even though I have been a professional for over 40 years I am still keen to continue to learn more, horticulture is ever changing with so many new varieties of plants and new products coming on to the market each year - its still very exciting to me.

 

Where ever possible I like to grow plants myself for at least one season to trial or through my horticultural friends so we can access and share our observations and advice to others.

 

I do  hope the photographs I have taken and shown on this and other webpage's inspire you to learn more and be creative in your own community and work with others to provide and enjoy your own colourful and interesting displays for everyone to enjoy as well as your local native wildlife.
