Versaw said groups and organizations have been doing a lot of things over the last six to eight years and now want to bump it up and do more. "Everybody has been doing their part," he said.
Judges will be looking at seven categories: flowers, landscaped areas, urban forestry, celebrating heritage, environmental efforts, community vitality and overall impression, he said.
Woodard, who lives in West Jefferson outside Columbus, said she has been involved in America in Bloom for the past three years.
"I just love what plants can do to a community," Woodard said. "It creates a lot of pride and the beautification efforts brings together a lot of people in the community. It's very rewarding," she said.
Waller of Arroyo Grande, California, said as an America in Bloom judge she loves seeing the transformation of cities and towns all over the United States becoming the best thing they can be.
To date, more than 250 communities from 45 states have participated in the program and more than 22 million people have been touched by it. Awards will be announced on Sept. 27-29 at AIB's National Symposium & Awards Celebration, held this year in Lexington, Kentucky, according to America in Bloom's news release.

Happy birthday Boler: 100s of cute campers in Winnipeg for anniversary gathering
Bolers have been about creating memories for the last 50 years, Giles said. That's why campers from as far away as Texas, California, Newfoundland, Yukon and Vancouver Island have made the journey for the party.
"When you park in a campground, you have people coming up to you telling you stories about when they were youngsters and a relative or friend had a Boler," he said.
"And they are still making memories today."

Four Floral Businesses To Receive The Century Award In Palm Springs
SAF Century Award during SAF Palm Springs 2018, the association's 134th Annual Convention at the Westin Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, California. The Century Award recognizes companies that have been in business for 100 years or more.
The 2018 Century Award honorees are: City Line Florist in Trumbull, Connecticut; Gould's Flowers in Lockport, New York; Janousek Florist & Greenhouse, Inc. in Omaha, Nebraska; and Lake Forest Flowers in Lake Forest, Illinois.
"Each year when we gather at the SAF convention, we interact with business owners who have determination, vision and grit," said SAF Awards Committee Chairman Marvin Miller, Ph.D., AAF, of the Ball Horticultural Company in West Chicago, Illinois. "But to sustain that for 100 years or more is truly an impressive feat."
City Line Florist Trumbull, Connecticut
City Line Florist has been owned and operated by the Roehrich/Palazzo family since 1918. When Charles Roehrich returned home from World War I, he already had a family history in the floral industry; his grandfather had grown plants in greenhouses in Stratford, Connecticut, in the late 1800s. Charles borrowed a horse and wagon and sold flowering plants and cut flowers at the entrance of St. Michaels cemetery in Stratford, eventually opening up a storefront in Bridgeport, which sat on the city line ...

Easy-care flowers can become a part of your garden
Calhoun, a master gardener with the University of California, said making your garden colorful with blooms is deceptively simple. You can have rainbow of colors, textures and shapes, flowers that climb, clump, spread, tiny or large.
The biggest obstacle to growing flowers in our area, Calhoun said, is the clay soil. The soil itself is nutritious enough, she said, it's just hard to plant in because it doesn't drain well.
"Clay is packed tight, so tight it 's waterproof," she said.
The best thing you can do to fix that, she said, is to add lava rock or pumice, which you can buy in bags at nurseries or large hardware stores.
Adding the pumice makes bigger particles opens up the clay allowing water to flow to roots better, she said.
Another important thing with flowers is to figure out if they need sun or shade. Just because the tag says "partial sun," that doesn't mean a plant can handle full bright reflected sun from a pool cover, for example.
Calhoun has a 14-page spreadsheet with information on her flowers' likes and dislikes. If they have dry leaves, they need less sun. If they seem anemic they probably need more sun.
Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to flowers, so pick and choose by what you want to see more of. Calhoun has several milkweed plants with small bright orange flowers to attract monarch butterflies.
Calhoun recommends morning glories, but make sure not to plant the perennial version... Jul 26, 2018
Gardening: Spangle-area gardener receives June garden of the month honor
Gardening learning curves can be steep when you move from Southern California's year-round gardening season to Spokane's four-season mishmash of microclimates. Just ask Carolyn and Monty Nesbitt when family pulled them from Indio, California, to the scabland area just west of Spangle 10 years ago.
After gardening in a year-round climate Carolyn said her biggest challenge was figuring out when it was really spring.
"Everyone said you couldn't plant until the snow was off Mica Peak," she said. "That didn't happen until late May!"
Then there was figuring out what USDA zone her basalt rock microclimate was in.
"I grew all kinds of citrus trees in Indio."
But garden she did, and she recently won the June Garden of the Month contest from the Inland Empire Gardeners.
The Nesbitts' garden has sweeping views of...
