Create a new Step By Step, Photo, or Video Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the right-hand column. Instructables must be published between Apr 16, 2012 and May 28, 2012 (11:59pm PT) to be eligible.


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Gardening Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.

Gardening Challenge

It's Spring time and time to get in the garden. So get ready to share any gardening tips or projects that you have for our Garden Contest!

To enter you simply need to make a new Instructable that covers something related to gardens. It can be traditional gardening, indoors or outdoors, hydroponic, aquaponic, or even astroponic, just as long as it's well documented with text and pictures and can help someone else with their gardening. Also, anything that goes into the garden, like a decoration, can be entered as well.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, Netherlands, Australia. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, May 28, 2012.
