Bangor’s Garden Show returned this year, and UMaine’s Horticulture Club was one of eight groups to display a gardenscape. Their theme was ‘Recycled Wishes’. The design featured two trees welded from rebar and holding blue glass bottles. An octagonal water feature was at the center of the display. Plants in the gardenscape included purple alum root, inkberry, birch, sunflowers, and impatiens. The students received an Honorable Mention for their design. UMaine alum Robert Bangs from Windswept Gardens received ‘Best in Show’, and Mary Lou Hoskins from Greencare Interior Plantscapes received the People’s Choice Award for a collaborative design with Mo McGlinn from McGlinn’s Wee Gardens. Congratulations to our students and alumni for their achievements!!!
