THE Packet asked its readers to send us their pictures of gardens transformed during lockdown – and here are the results.

With many people spending a lot more time at home over the past few months – and with plenty of dry weather in April and May – it was a prime time to spruce up your outdoors spaces.

And it seems that many people did just that.

The gallery above shows all of the entries we received for our light-hearted competition, with a £100 B&Q voucher up for grabs.

We had pictures from around the area, including a bulk from Mawnan Smith, where the WI group held a Garden Safari recently, raising money for Children's Hospice South West.

We'll be picking a winner soon, but in the meantime enjoy the pictures in the gallery above.
