Did you spend a lot of time in the garden this summer? If so, you're not alone. From Nova Scotia to Saskatoon, the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted many Canadians to dust off their green thumbs and get their hands dirty. We want to see your sprouts, your blooms, and your vines.

Contest Closed: #RootedHere

All summer long, @CBC_EastCoast mailed out wildflower seed packets to local Instagrammers who tagged their photos #RootedHere all summer long. Check out some of those beautiful photos in the gallery below.

      Congratulations to Meg, Diedre, Shannon, and Stephanie. They were the winners of the four summer gardening prize packs. Each pack included a few seed packets, a local gardening book, and a beautiful canvas tote bag with the Rooted Here design by Nova Scotia artist Kristen De Palma.
