Rowley Sharpe claimed the award for best allotment, while Anne Crosland of Holmer Driver was crowned best front garden.
First Choice Home Care were named as best newcomer in the awards.
Stephanie Hammond, of Halesworth in Bloom, said: 'Identifying the best front gardens is not an easy task and is not, as they say, comparing apples with apples.
'As well as wanting to encourage planting that is pleasing to passers-by, we aim to recognise the individualism, sustainability and planting that is insect-friendly and drought-resistant.
