Derek Westerman was judged to have Wakefield’s Garden of the Year at the WDH 2014 Love Where You Live Awards.
His garden in Leatham Crescent, Featherstone, narrowly edged a closely-fought contest thanks to his well-maintained healthy and unusual tropical plants.
Derek said: “I was so pleased to have won. It was a tough competition with a lot of nice gardens in the category. It was a really lovely night and it is very rewarding to have won.”
The Best Garden category was judged by Mr and Mrs Moran, WDH tenants whose garden in Airedale has previously featured on ‘Gardeners’ World’.
