About Blooming Saint Paul Showcase

The Blooming Saint Paul Showcase highlights amazing gardens as well as stories from residents and business owners who are dedicated to enhancing the Saint Paul community through gardening. This virtual celebration recognizes honorees who have been nominated by the community.

The nomination period for 2023 has closed, but the Showcase will take place December 1-21 on the Saint Paul Natural Resources Facebook page.

City staff and Ramsey County Master Gardener volunteers contact individuals who were nominated to invite honorees to introduce us to their garden, share their gardening secrets, or tell us why they are a gardener. Their story may arrive in writing, in a video, or as a work of art. We celebrate all nominees online through social media posts and our website during the rest of the year.

Blooming Saint Paul Awards (2011-2019)

From 2011-2019 the Blooming Saint Paul Awards was a collaborative initiative between Saint Paul Parks and Recreation, the Saint Paul Garden Club, and the Ramsey County Master Gardeners. The program was presented by the Saint Paul Pioneer Press and the Capitol Region Watershed District. The Blooming Saint Paul Awards helped recognize residents and businesses who are dedicated to enhancing their local communities through landscaping. 

We recognized nominated gardens, trees or groups in seven different categories. Each category recognized the top three nominations with Golden Bloom, Silver Bloom, and Bronze Bloom awards.
