How to submit photos for What’s Blooming:
Please name each photo file with the name of the plant(s) (e.g., ‘Rhododendron Snow Lady.jpg’). If you want your own name(s) or the garden location to be displayed in the subtitle, include it in the name of the photo, too (e.g. ‘Snow Lady from a coastal garden in Qualicum Beach.jpg’). Whatever you name the photo, that’s what the caption will read.
Send as many photos as you like, as long as each photo is named. We’re hoping to use these photo albums as bloom-time references from year to year, so having plant names is important. But if you don’t know the name of the plant, just label it “Unknown”.
Photos display best if they have a minimum size of 400 pixels on their shortest dimension. If you can send photos larger than that, please do so; but it’s okay if you can’t. Smaller photos will appear blurry on the website, but it’s not a photo contest — it’s all about the joy of sharing your garden!
We welcome your inspirational gardening quotes, too!
During summer months we publish a new album every Monday, so if you want your photos in the current week’s album, please send them by midnight Sunday.
During winter, a monthly album is updated regularly as photos come in. Please email your photos to:
