Container garden contest in Lewiston offers inspiring designs
Looking at objects in a different way– in this case upside down– can help you create unusual container gardens. Bonnie Bagwell flipped a glass light shade and used it as the base for this eye-catching container garden.
Bagwell won first place for her design in the traditional category of the container garden competition at the Lewiston GardenFest, which was held Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23. The event also included a vendor fair, garden walk and speakers.
“Some people think you have to be a terrific gardener in order to join, but you don’t,” said member Kay Kalick. “You just have to appreciate what nature has to offer.”
The club is going to hold some evening meetings to make it more convenient for those who can’t attend during the day. Club activities include speakers, field trips, social events and decorating in the Village of Lewiston.
