2020 Green Thumb Awards Entries Welcome

New plants and garden product entries are now being accepted for the 2020 Green Thumb Awards, presented by the Direct Gardening Association.

For the first time, all companies with plants and garden products may enter their new products in the  competition — not just companies that are members of the Direct Gardening Association.

Three categories of new gardening products are eligible for entry into the 2020 Green Thumb Awards competition: Ornamental Plants, Garden Products and Accessories, and Edible Plants. The deadline for entries is Sept. 17.

“Any company can enter its plants or products into the 2020 Green Thumb Awards competition,” said Greg Key, president of the Direct Gardening Association. “We encourage entries from DGA member companies and non-members alike because we want the 2020 Green Thumb Award winners to reflect the very best of the new products available throughout the garden industry.”

Last year, a total of six products won Green Thumb Awards. Two ornamental plants, two garden products and two edible plants were honored with a Green Thumb Award. Winning the award can boost a product’s sales and visibility because the Green Thumb Award logo can be used in the sales and marketing of award-winning plants and products.
