Garden Gnome Contest

The Hunt is On!

Join the thousands of Gnome-Seekers across Canada who, each season, search for our little, hidden Garden Gnome. This fun tradition began in December 2007 and our Fall 2020 catalogue marks his 27th ‘hidden appearance’. Given the response we receive each season we’re sure that you will have a great time rooting him out!


Our little Garden Gnome is tucked into plant image somewhere in our Fall 2020 selection. We guarantee you’re going to have fun trying to find him. Get the kids and the grandkids involved because everybody, young or old, loves to hunt for the Gnome! Once you’ve found him you’re then eligible to enter our draw for the grand prize.

In fact, this past spring Susan J. from Peterborough ON did just that. She found our little friend hidden in the Aralia 'Sun King' and won our draw for the $100 Botanus Gift Card! Susan, like so many of you, was able to find our little garden gnome hiding in the Aralia cordata 'Sun King' - which just happens to be the Perennial of the Year 2020.

Botanus Garden Gnome Spring 2020

To get you started here’s a nice clear picture of what he looks like.

Get out the magnifying glass ‘cause this little fella may be hard to find. Keep in mind that we’ve probably snuggled him in somewhere so not all of his body may be visible but he is crystal clear...ok we’ve said enough. If you do happen to find him, oh talented  Seeker-of-the-Garden-Gnome, you can then enter your name into our draw to win a $100 Botanus Gift Card!


Here are the rules:
1. Begin searching our Fall 2020 pruint catalogue or the Botanus website. Don’t give up too easily…he’s hiding in a plant picture somewhere!
2. Once you locate the plant he’s hiding in send us an email with the plant name along with your name, address and telephone number to:    gardengnome@botanus.com  If you prefer, you can call us with your entry: 1-800-672-3413.
3. Once your entry has been received (with the correct plant name) we’ll enter you into our draw to win the $100 Botanus Gift Card.
4. Entries have to be received by September 17th, 2020 and are limited to Canadian residents, 19 years and older only.
5. One entry per household only please!


On September 18th, 2020 we’ll put all the entries into a big garden tub and draw out the winning name and that lucky gardener will receive their $100 Botanus Gift Card.        


Good luck to you all and happy Gnome hunting!
