In its eighth year, the contest invited adults and children to submit entries of plants in unusual containers. According to organizer Al Eddy, the contest was started in 2006 to encourage families to garden together. This year’s winners in the adult category included Joslyn Saunders in first place, Alia Saunders in second and Cosette Thomas in third.
