How entries were judged
The first competition is called the “People’s Choice”Contest where votes were collected from website viewers. We had a few instances of “ballot box stuffing” so we made adjustments to the vote counts (both positive and negative) to ensure the winners were recognized fairly. The second competition is called the “Designers Choice” competition where all entries were judged by a group of over 20 people who work and live inside the gardening/growing, window box, planter and hanging basket industry. These people span departments including customer service, design, manufacturing, marketing, sales, engineering, logistics and avid gardeners. All had ballots and all voted.

Prizes Awarded
Winners have been notified separately of their awards that included; gift certificates, live plant gifts from GivingPlants.com, Herb Growing Kits, Garden Tools, and Gardening Books. All totaled over $2,000 in gifts and prizes!
