It's gardening time and that can only mean one thing: a gardening contest! 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, 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.

We have all sorts of cool prizes for you, too. There's a camera that will take time-lapse movies of our flowers growing, a sweet pair of pruners, a handy pruning saw, and Instructables Prize Packs that include a one-year Pro membership, Robot t-shirt, and much more!

So get to it and share some gardening knowledge. We can't wait to see what you'll make!

Multiples entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize International entries are accepted (Official Rules)

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Apr 28, 2010 and May 30, 2010 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Garden Contest. 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.


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.
