Pacific Northwest Gardens: A Fun Competition

Pacific Northwest Gardens: A Fun Competition

courtesy Chocolate Flower FarmThis is so very cool. How about entering your garden in an amateur garden competition with awesome prizes? The NW Flower & Garden Show sponsors this fun competition that is facilitated and judged by the Arboretum Foundation every year.

The deadline to enter is June 16, 2008 so don’t take too long to think about it.

Any home garden in King, Pierce or Snohomish counties, or on Bainbridge Island, is eligible unless its owners are plant, nursery or landscape professionals, or work in any capacity performing garden design, care or maintenance.

There are some rules to be aware of. For instance, if you have nw-garden-show-08-034.JPGreceived professional garden design services in the past five years, you aren’t eligible. Check out the rest of the rules before entering.

Prizes are GREAT. The grand daddy is round-trip airfare for two to London for the May 2209 Chelsea Flower Show, admission to the show and FIVE nights lodging. Even second prize is airfare and admission for two for the 2009 San Francisco Show. There are also cash prizes and gift certificates to Swansons Nursery in Seattle. AND the rules state that judges may award other prizes to individuals whose gardens are unique or reflect a special passion for gardening.

Are you entering? Of course we want to hear about it so please, please, please comment and let us know!
