Have you been spending a lot of time in the garden lately? 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. 

CBC East Coast wants to see your sprouts, your blooms, and your vines. Share your summer gardening photos using the hashtag #RootedHere. All summer long, we'll be sending out wildflower seed packets to Instagrammers, each featuring this beautiful design illustrated by Nova Scotia artist Kristen de Palma. And, stay tuned for more cool swag up for grabs throughout the summer. 

Whether you've got a thriving backyard veggie garden, a lone geranium on your balcony, or a beloved corner of a community garden, we hope you'll share a peek at your verdant corner of the East Coast with us.
