Our showbench is going virtual until we can all get together again!

Stage your entries as you normally would and send a picture to 

The entries will be generously marked (everybody gets a 5!) and these marks will count towards the year-end total. There will be a special picture gallery on the Gallery of our website where you can scroll through and see all the entries. You can find the pictures under Events>Monthly Show Bench or Click Here.

As gardening in our yards and on our balconies is about all we can do right now, we should have some amazing pictures to share!

A spring garden sampler is a wonderful way to show off things that are currently blooming in your garden. This does not need to be big, it can be just a few cuts in a small vase. What a way to bring a little spring brightness inside.
