How the “California Native Flower Arrangement Contest” Works 

This is as it sounds, a contest of flower arrangements made up of California natives taken from around the nursery.

What to bring: 1) clippers 2) vase 3)other items-gloves, hat, etc…

We have to limit the number of contestants due to space restrictions in the display area  (potting area), so you’ll need to let us know as soon as possible. I wouldn’t “chance” showing up on the day of the contest and expecting a space. Reserve your spot soon.

On the day of the contest, you’ll need to let us know you’re at the nursery and ready to go by 10:30.  The earlier you arrive, the better. The contest will be over by 11:00, and then the judging will start. The winner will be announced at 11:30.

What do you get?

  • All participants will get a 30% on purchases made the day of the event.
  • One grand prize winner gets a $50 gift certificate plus 2 runners-up will get $25 gift certificates too.
  • And you keep your creation too!


We do need judges for the contest, we can have up to 10 judges.  If you’re in the “biz”, or if you’ve been a judge before, you are qualified!  Judges get a $50 gift certificate – not a great deal, but it’s a fun job. You will need to be at the nursery no later than 10:30, so you can evaluate the arrangements. You’ll be finished, officially, by 11:30. If you’re interested in judging, email or call the nursery.

I’m sure I’ve left something out so stay tuned.

Good luck!  And email or call soon for a space!!!!
