Did you plant and grow any flowers, vegetables or herbs from Renee’s Garden seeds this year? If so, you can enter Renee’s 7th Annual Photo Contest and receive more seeds.
I’m having a hard time deciding which vegetable pictures to submit to Renee’s Garden for the gardening photo contest this year. Everything I planted did so well this year, including these round baby carrots called Romeo.
If you planted any of Renee’s Garden seeds, now’s the time to take a picture of the flowers, herbs or veggies and enter the contest. Every entry receives a free packet of seeds and a chance at a $50 gift certificate.
In addition to the main contest, there’s a special kid’s garden contest, too, for anyone under age 16.
For more information about the photo contest, visit Renee’s Garden website.
Renee’s Garden is known for its high-quality seed and every year the company offers a number of new flower and vegetable varieties.
I had the chance to interview Renee Shepherd for an article I wrote earlier this year. She’s as nice as you’d expect her to be, despite being busy with every aspect of her seed business from growing new varieties in her own garden to writing the detailed planting instructions for every seed packet.
Before adding anything new to her catalog, Renee told me she looks for unusual varieties by asking what other seed vendors and producers from around the world are growing. She also asks for feedback from her customers on what works and doesn’t work in their gardens.
One of the things I like about Renee’s Garden seeds is that she intends for gardeners of all skill levels to grow them. Renee said she won’t sell seeds of any plant that’s found to be difficult to grow.
Deadline for the photo contest is September 15, 2010.
