Jean Griffin, from BBC Radio Sussex Dig It, spent the day judging between 24 varied entries, before giving an ‘excellent and amusing’ talk.
Anne Slocombe took first place in the best kept garden category, while Mary Moody came first in the hanging basket category.
Both winners were presented with vouchers from sponsors by Gardner and Scardifield and Jacob Steel.
Councillors thanked Gardner and Scardifield for generously providing a shield for the winner.
The council said the day was ‘a great success’ and hope to make it an annual event.
