Re: Garden Awards

I like the sound of the kind of garden awards that Gayle suggested.
They would honor the skills and creativity of the gardener.  I could also
see such topics as best use of companions (annual or perennial), and
something like most unusual combination, plants you wouldn't normally think
to put together but look fabulous if you do.
As far as awards for actual hostas the only thing out there now with any
meaning is the Growers Association Hosta of the Year.  Since Mary C. said a
program was worked out for a sort of awards pyramid,
HM, AM and "best" I hope it eventually gets implemented.  Hybridizers who
are producing good vigorous gardenworthy plants deserve to
receive some kind of recognition.
