The annual Yard of the Month contest again will be sponsored by the Bittersweet Garden Club and Central Missouri Master Gardeners.
Last year's winners included a wooded escape hidden near a busy in-town street, a keen eye for blooming cycles, thought-out walkways and garden rooms, and a symphony of iris and peonies.
Nominations are accepted for the June spring garden, July summer gardens, August water garden, and September and October fall gardens.
To be eligible, gardens must be within six miles of the Jefferson City limits and maintained by the owner.
Winners will be selected by a viewing committee and must agree to let the public view their garden.
Entry forms are available at local nurseries and at the Jefferson City News Tribune, 210 Monroe St.
