DGA is the Direct Gardening Association, an association of website and mail order horticulture companies, and every year it presents the Green Thumb Awards for the best new ornamental plants, garden products and edibles. This year, the honors in the Ornamental Seeds, Bulbs and Plants division go to Illuminati Tiny Tower Mock Orange and Peppy Le Pom Ornamental Pomegranate (pictured), both from Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs.

In the Gardening Tools and Accessories division, the Vertex Lifetime Tomato Cage and the Bamboo LED Grow Light Garden, both from Gardener’s Supply Co., came away as winners. And finally, in the Edible Plants division, the winners were Wood Prairie Organic Colossal Potato Collection from Wood Prairie Family Farm and Tomato Purple Boy Hybrid from Park Seed.
