A CAISTOR couple certainly know their onions when it comes to gardening.

Peter and Gwen Thompson have won the town’s Best Edible Garden competition, adding to their haul of awards from this year’s series of prizes on offer from Caistor in Bloom.

The Horsemarket residents were also winners of the Best Spring Garden, took third place in the Summer Best 
Domestic Garden 
competition and second for Best Doorway.

“It was amazing to see the transformation from spring to the summer plants,” said Caistor in Bloom chairman Deborah Barker.

“This gave the judges a clear message that the garden entries were all of an extremely high standard and every entrant had worked incredibly hard, despite inclement weather conditions earlier in the season.”

The Edible Garden competition was sponsored by Lincolnshire Co-operative and the garden of Louis and Robina King was placed in second, with that of Billie and Peter O’Leary third.
