2011 Competitions


10 East Broad Street

April 15 and 16, 2011

History Blooms in Savannah

When Savannah was settled in 1733, Trustee’s Garden was established as an experimental farm. Bringing the Expo to such an historic place begs that the competitions incorporate not only indigenous flora and fauna, but also Savannah’s historic color palette. Stories of local historic colors range from social caste to voodoo lore; therefore, the competition entries should also focus on historic colors. Some examples are: Haint Blue, Chatham Gold, Tabby White, Tomochichi Red, and Winter Marsh. It is possible that the history of the colors alone may be the primary inspiration of the window box or container created!

Exhibition Garden Competition

Competing for certificates of distinction in several categories, exhibition garden designers are limited only by their imaginations as they design gardens that will delight the senses and showcase their talents.

Whether you’re an amateur gardener or a more experienced gardening enthusiast, these gardens will serve to inspire you!

Container Garden Competition

This unique competition offers visitors a wealth of new ideas as they work with a provided basket to create a harmony of floral and fauna.

Window Box Competition

Ingenuity reigns as competitors celebrate the beauty of flowers with creatively planted window boxes, each with their own distinct style and personality. The window boxes are up for silent auction. Don’t forget to place your bid!

Prize money and certificates of distinction are awarded.
