Mischler’s Florist and Greenhouses


Mischler’s Florist and Greenhouses, which has won awards for its own container designs, gives you a chance to show off your talent and possibly win a great prize in its new Container Design Competition to be held Saturday, Aug. 2 at Mischler’s, 118 South Forest Rd., Williamsville.

It’s free to enter. The first, second and third place awards are gift certificates from Mischler’s for $100, $50 and $25, respectively.

The first place winner gets an additional honor: the opportunity to have his or her container included among Mischler’s entries in this year’s Cornell Horticultural Field Days Competion to be held Aug. 5 in Cornell.

Your entry must be a container you put together yourself, not one that was designed professionally.

You can drop off your entry between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 1, or  from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 2. Judging will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2. You don’t have to be present to win. You must pick up your container garden by 5 p.m. Saturday.

You can stop in to Mischler’s to pick up an entry form or get the entry form online.
