Coming Soon: Garden Contest - UPDATE Answered

It's spring! That means that it's time to be excited about doing some gardening and helping plants grow grow grow. To help get you in the spirit we're going to be having a Garden Contest coming soon.

We don't have any further details about prizes and dates and such just yet, but it's not too far off in the future. So if you have any garden Instructables you've been thinking about publishing, hold off until the contest begins.

UPDATE
Garden Contest will begin this Wednesday. Prizes include some sweet and handy tools for the garden including a camera that helps you make timelapse movies of your plants growing!

I have three gardens to murder and fix, this could be good... 

On a side note, I managed to crash a camping chair yesterday, turns out the tunnels the rabbit left a rather widespread and complex burrow/doom fortress.

I was initially going to post an Instructable on how to build a stone fountain for your garden.  I wonder if it would qualify for this contest?  It has planters built in, after all....

That's beautiful! 
I planted a standard green artichoke on my hill last spring, but while it's still alive it's not producing yet.  I remain hopeful, though, and plan to give it some purple friends!

Thanks! I hope you will check out my website. My contact info is on there too.  Artichokes should be in full sun.  At this time of year, you should feed it steer manure at least 2 times per month or every 2 weeks.  Water twice per day when the weather is hot and 1 time per day when the weather is mild. Artichokes need good drainage.  If they soak in water they can get root rot within a matter of 3 days.  Go snail hunting each day... they love artichokes too!  I've got lots more helpful growing tips on my website.

WELCOME TO THE CLUB!

Isn't it fun!  I have 6 varieties: purple violetta, red romanesco, jumbo green globe, regular green globe, imperial star, and another I can't remember the name.  Love your pic!  Check out my website with artichoke stuff at www.pondplantgirl.com/artichoke-care.htm

I don't think I have anymore purple seeds, but am waiting for what I do have to go to seed.  I usually purchase all my gourmet reds and purples on eBay.

Thanks!  Would like to get to know you better.  There's a link for my facebook on the website too.

GARDEN BLESSINGS, GAiL

Hey, if anyone can post an Instructable on "how to tend a garden for people who can't even care for a single houseplant," I'll give 'em my vote in this contest!

I really want a veggie garden, but I just don't have the time to tend it properly.  I've got lots of space outside though, and I'm prepared to throw money at it, too.

Would slide-shows (say, of established gardens) be allowed?

How strictly "garden" would the contest be?  Would a non-plant garden ornament be allowed?
