A group of green-fingered Thamesmead residents took part in the annual Thamesmead in Bloom contest.
Individuals and community groups competed for the titles of Best Garden, Different Garden, Specialist Garden, Community Garden and Best Balcony.
There were 22 entries in all and a panel of 12 members Friends of Thamesmead Parks did the judging, along with Trust Thamesmead’s community development officer Alex Forrester.
The Community Garden category was judged by Gallions Housing Association staff and the presentations were made on August 12.
Each of the winners received £100 in vouchers with runners-up winning £50 and third prize £20, valid at Europe’s largest home improvement and garden centre retailers, as well as a certificate.
Winner of Best Different Garden Vic Richardson, of Aspen Green, said: "Winning Thamesmead in Bloom is like winning the lottery but without the money.
"I love my exotic front garden - people often knock and ask about the plants and the wife is happy as she has her traditional English garden out the back."
