Winning #ContainerCraze container

Betsy Knafel is the winner of Fine Gardening's #ContainerCraze Challenge sponsered by Flower Carpet.  Her gardening skills extend beyond her winning container!

"I very rarely go inside in the summer! I have always loved flowers and gardening. We bought our house 18 years ago and the only landscaping it had was around 2 sides of our house. We own an acre and I now have 3 sides of our property landscaped. I also have landscaped completely around the house.  I started really getting into gardening about 15 years ago and worked part time at a garden center and now have my own business. I loved reading and learning about all the beautiful new plants that would come in. After the first year of working there, I was the only person who did the custom potting for customers. I absolutely LOVED it!"
