Our Lockdown Garden competition is open, and some entrants are letting us know why their little patch of Suffolk is so important to them.
Hannah Earrey, a 36-year-old from Ipswich, shared her pictures of the garden and explained how beneficial her garden had been to her mental health.
She said: “I can honestly say that having a garden has been a life line.
“I can lose myself in the gardening and nature and it really does help, I feel like I could be anywhere in the world.
“I encourage others to get out in there garden, start small and before you know it a small project can literally bloom.”
