The wheelbarrows and plants have been collected by those participating in the third annual Brandon In Bloom’s planted wheelbarrow competition.
This year’s theme for the 15 groups taking part is Desert Island Discs - which is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
For inspiration, organiser and owner of P&R Garden Supplies, Rachel Sobiechowski, has created a Middle Earth wheelbarrow based on Ed Sheeran’s song I see Fire, which was the sound track to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
The groups will have until Sunday, June 25 to grow and create their masterpiece before their wheelbarrows are judged by their fellow competitors.
Miss Sobiechowski who started Brandon In Bloom said this year’s event will also celebrate her company’s 15th anniversary.
“I cannot wait to see all the different ideas,” she said. “I know one of the groups is doing a book they would take with them if they were on the island.
“When we first started Brandon In Bloom we thought about how we could create a buzz and get people interested. With a wheelbarrow anyone can be involved and it can be placed anywhere.”
