THE finalists have been chosen!

After a tough judging session, entries to the Haskins/Daily Echo Summer Gardens Photographic Competition have been picked out and will now go on show at the garden centre for visitors to choose the overall winner.

There will be a top prize for the best photograph as well as a prize for one lucky person who pops their voting slip in the box at Haskins.

All ten entries appear here in the Daily Echo as well as on our website for you to judge before voting.

Daily Echo editor Ian Murray and assistant general manager Peter Callaway, from Haskins Garden Centres, viewed more than 100 entries for the Echo/Haskins Gardener’s Digital Photo Competition to select a top ten to be displayed at the centre at West End. A public vote will now decide the winner.

Visitors to the centre will be invited to fill in a slip over the next two weeks and the photographer with the most votes will receive a professionally framed copy of their image and £200 worth of gardening vouchers.

The deadline for voting is Sunday, October 14. Each voter will be entered into a draw to win a £10 voucher.

Mr Callaway said that the variety of photos, ranging from panoramic garden shots to close-ups of individual plants and flower heads, made the top ten selection very difficult to judge.

He said: “I believe we have an interesting and colourful range.

“We look forward to announcing the winner in the paper in a few weeks’ time.”

  • To vote for your favourite, visit Haskins in Mansbridge Road, Southampton.
