Congratulations to Howard County Master Gardeners, whose Maryland Home and Garden Show booth, "Container Gardening," won first prize as most educational.

Three Master Gardeners spent hours growing 400 zinnia plants for the booth. The plants were given to gardeners at the end of the show.

The dedicated zinnia gardeners are Joyce Fell, Susan Flamino and Diane Brown.
