Congratulations to Carol Brown of Stockbridge, July’s Garden of the Month winner. A judge writes, Shasta Daisies make a lovely presentation in Carol’s natural cottage garden. Daisies need at least 6 hours of sunlight and appear in spring and early summer gardens. They will continue to bloom if they are deadheaded. Often daisies are chosen for wedding bouquets symbolizing loyal love, beauty and fertility.
This Garden Contest runs from May 2020 through March 2021. A garden will be chosen and shared each month. In March 2021, readers will vote for their favorite garden. Next year’s winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Tulip Tree Gardens funded by Dorothy Craft’s Sewing and Alterations and Tulip Tree Gardens. To enter a garden, send up to five photos by the 15th of each month. Email photos to StockbridgeCommunityNews@gmail.com and use “Gardens” as the subject. Include your name, physical address of the garden and a phone number.
