judges select award winning gardens at the
23rd annual san francisco flower & garden show
(San Francisco, Calif. March 11, 2008) – Awards were presented for display gardens at the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show tonight at the Cow Palace. The daunting task of judging the show gardens was given to a panel of three judges handpicked for their extensive horticultural and design knowledge. This year’s judging panel consisted of David Stevens, Lucy Hardiman and C. Colston Burrell. In addition to selecting the garden that is “best of show” – the Golden Gate Cup – the three judges also determined how well the gardens achieved their declared design objectives and the quality of execution. They presented gold, silver, bronze or crystal awards to the following display gardens.
