Each year our employees create containers using their imaginations and plants found in the nursery. Some have decades of gardening experience while others are as green as gardenia. This year's containers exhibit our staff member's creativity and unique personalities - we hope they serve as a source inspiration for future plantings!

Visit the nursery from July 24 and July 28 to see our creations on display and vote for your favorites. If you aren't able to visit during the voting period, don't worry! The containers will remain in place for several weeks following.

Have you picked a favorite (or two)? Let us know in the comment section at the bottom of the page!

      Hi Sue! The grand prize winner was “Dark Beautiful Night” (#20), second place was “Dark Desire” (#6) and third place was “Shades of Purple” (#4). These numbers correspond with the container labels at the nursery… not the order they are shown above. I did move the pictures of the three winners to the top of the page, however.
