And the seven lucky winners are:

Martin Bakker “My favorite high summer flower? Tough choice as there are so many! Erm… it is a close call between Cosmos and Sweet peas but I think Sweet peas will have to be the winner! Just can’t beat that scent can you? And some of the colours are just out of this world! Sweet peas it is!”

Jesi “I am originally from southwest Florida, so for me, it is gardenias. I love them so much and miss them!”

Diane Miller “It is toss up being obsessed between the showy garden rose and the big showy Annabelle hydrangea.”

Lisa “Hands down Zinnias. I love them all, but Zins are my favorite Summer flower.”

Elizabeth Blecha “Favorite summer flower? So many favorites, but peonies are on the top of my list!”

Barbara “Peonies, Peonies, Peonies! I actually have peonies from my great grandmother’s garden and my mother’s wedding bouquet were from those same plants…..Such a wonderfully warm connection to such beautiful plants!”

Kate Swift “Roses and dahlias.”

    Just got my GFM issue in the mailbox today– so nice to see your celosia photos in print after just seeing them in the GFM downloaded version! I was wondering, when you do these big trials, do you repeat them over several seasons in case conditions in that particular season ended up being unfavorable or challenging to the crop you trialed?

      Kim, I’m so limited on space that I generally do one massive comparison and then keep everything that looked promising (even if it grew poorly but I have the gut feeling it needs another go) for the next year. From there we whittle it down to our favorites and the ones that thrive in our climate.
