Well, that’s it, the Xmas Quiz is over for this year. I hope you enjoyed it, learnt a few things and had a bit of fun!

Here are the answers to the Round Eight Picture Quiz – Name that Gardener!

Give yourself one point for each correct answer

From top left to bottom right:

The maximum available score for the eight rounds was 164. How did you do?

I hope you kept a note of your scores for each round. Please add them up and either post them on my blog in the comments section, leave a comment on our Facebook page, send them in a CGS email or message them on our WhatsApp Group page.

  1. Absolutely brilliant quiz – thanks so much for preparing it. I did reasonably well on the ‘name that gardener’ section but, whilst getting many of the names, not always matching the right name to the right photo!
    All the best for a safe Christmas and New Year – looking forward to more next year.


  2. I got a grand total of 8! But as a beginner I have no complaints. The best part for me was comparing the answers with the original question or picture. I’m sure other knowledgeable folk will have found it all equally enjoyable. Thank you David.

    • Okay, 8 is not going to win any prizes, but then again, there are no prizes! Glad you enjoyed it. To be fair, it was for the more experienced and knowledgeable gardening fraternity and you stuck with it so well done!
