2022 Container Wars
Ready, set, go: Container Wars Returns for Riveting Battles at the Festival
Container Wars is back to provide a first-hand look at container creation and curation! Gardening experts will go head-to-head to create beautiful and practical containers, suitable for any level of gardener. Presented by Osmocote Plant Food, these entertaining competitions will take place each day of the Festival on the Main Stage in the North Hall.
Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your next container or just want to feed your love for competition, make sure to visit the Main Stage from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM - we hope you can “contain” your excitement! Seattle’s beloved gardening columnist and television host Marianne Binetti returns as emcee.
