Green-thumbs unite! Instructables.com is happy to announce that we're hosting a Gardening Contest! We are looking forward to seeing a a cornucopia of seeding-skills, planters, gardens, ANYTHING that has to do with cultivating plants!
Enter the Gardening Contest to show us what the plants in your garden are up to this year. Are they sprouting in fancy planters made from railroad ties and unicorn horns? Will they be cultivated via Twitter? Have you discovered a way to creatively display what you propagate? Make them yield more fruits or veggies? Or have you hit upon a way to keep them alive with minimal effort on your part?
Show us what you’ve done with your garden to win an AeroGarden, watering cans, trowels and more!
