You will use your creativity to fill a container with a beautiful assortment of plants and flowers and then your unique creation will be placed in our auction. Our esteemed judges will choose their favorite design. The winning container will be placed in the evening’s live auction, and the winning designer will receive a $250 Visa gift card! But don’t worry; even if your entry wasn’t the 1st place winner, your original creation will be sold in the silent auction. All containers can be displayed at The Portland Nursery the week before the event to be included in the Fan Favorite judging by Portland Nursery customers.
What will the judges be looking for?
The judging will be on the basis of beauty of container garden composition. They will also be looking for creativity of the name, description and overall appearance.
Will my container make me famous?
YES! Containers will be on display the week prior to the event at Portland Nursery.
The winning Container may be featured on Garden Time and other media. Your gracious donation will be recognized in the event program, on Facebook, and mentioned on
