Container Garden Contest!


It’s that time of year again! The past few years we’ve held a summer gardening contest. This year we’re doing it again – but we’re shaking things up a bit. We’ve loved seeing everyone come in this year for the container workshops, as well as putting together their own plants to make custom containers. So, in the spirit of “do-it-yourself”, we are going to hold a Container Contest! This means, pots, baskets, window boxes, fairy gardens, etc. – any container at home that you’ve planted this year!

The rules are like previous years:  you can submit your photos of your containers by emailing them to or personal messaging them to our facebook page. In your entry, include a photo of your pot, basket, window box, fairy gardens, etc. and your name, email, and phone number. Please do not submit your photos as a comment on any posts. You may enter more than one container, but you may only enter one photo per container.

The deadline for entries is Saturday, July 8th. We’ll post all the entries to our facebook page and website by Sunday, July 9th, at which time voting will begin. Voting will last for one week and will close on Saturday, July 15th at 11:59pm. Winners will be notified by Monday, July 17th.



First Place Prize will receive a certificate for a waived class fee for a workshop for you and a friend here at Moraine Gardens! This certificate is good for our fall container workshops (dates TBD) or next year’s container workshops and fairy garden workshops! (This includes just the initial class fees, not the plants used)


Second Place Prize will receive this beautiful 13” container!



Third Place Prize is this whimsical little piece of garden art (it spins in the wind)!


How to Vote:

To vote on our facebook page, simply like the photo of your favorite fairy garden. On the website, we will post a blog post with all of the pictures, and you can vote by commenting which is your favorite.

So send us your pictures, tell your friends about our contest, and recruit them to vote for your containers!
