Show your Canadian spirit with flowers and trees
Manitoba, Alberta and Ontario Gardener are joining together to create a cross Canada garden contest open to all gardeners wishing to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary in 2017. All you have to do to enter is to create a garden, garden bed or container garden themed on something that celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday! Send us a photograph of your creation before Friday, June 23, 2017. Winners will be announced on Canada Day!
There will be six levels of entry: (1.) Very small garden in a confined space or balcony. (2.) Container garden: i.e. one container or several. (3.) Small home garden in a city. (4.) Large home garden in a city. (5.) Large country home/farm garden. (6.) Gardens using trees and/or shrubs.
The gardens will be judged by a national panel of garden experts according to the following criteria: (1.) Garden must symbolize Canada’s sesquicentennial in some way. It does not have to be red and white. (2.) Gardens can use annuals, perennials, shrubs, trees or a combination. (3.) Gardeners are asked to submit a 250 to 300 word description of the theme and the thinking behind it. (4.) Gardeners should include a sketch of their plan. (5.) A head and shoulders photo of the gardener and a brief description about the person (150 words) and their gardening experience.
