Summertime - the gardener's season. It's the time of blooms and connecting with Mother Earth. Join us in celebrating our love of gardening by entering our Summer Gardening Awards, 2009! This summer we have two categories for you to enter.


  1. The Sunny Sunflower: Who doesn't get inspired by a smiling sunflower? This Award will go to the Sunflower voted as the most "beautiful". Select your favourite type of sunflower, gather your seeds, find that perfect sunflower location and get ready to pamper your Awards entry!
  2. The Retreat: One of the greatest benefits of a personal garden area is that feeling of inner peace that it brings. For some, that feeling of fulfilment happens while gazing at a particular flower; for others it occurs while meditating in a specific setting; and for others - well, it can be anything. Share with us your special garden retreat area and in your description share your design inspiration and how the retreat area affects you emotionally.
