I have the privilege of volunteering at Ellerslie this year. This means I get to combine two of my favourite things – plants and helping. There are less display gardens than usual this year, but a few of them were quite inspiring. I had already chosen my favourite garden during the sneak peak we got as volunteers before the gardens were completed. I am pleased to report that the judges shared my opinion and awarded it both the Supreme Award and the Supreme Judges Award.
