Here’s your chance to showcase your latest gardening projects while competing for prizes. The rules are simple and, like everything else at GardenTenders, there’s no fee to enter.

The best part of this competition?

There will be no designated jury of experts. You and your fellow GardenTenders will cast the votes. This creates a truly democratic voting process from our exceptional gardening community.


  1. Edible Beauty: Use edible plants to show that it's not just flowers that make a garden beautiful. Create an "edible garden" that is either a flowerbed or a planter. In the description of your entry be sure to tell us about the plants that you have included in your special garden.
  2. Indoors-Out: Bring the indoors out and create a special garden feature using a re-purposed object. In the description of your entry tell us a little history on your indoor item and how it inspired you to take it outdoors.
