Updated 01/31/2011 — The lucky winner is Jenna Z. If you didn’t win and would like to try again, please visit Cold Climate Gardening where Kathy is also sponsoring a giveaway of seeds from Botanical Interests!
How about some free seeds to start off a year of wildflowers in your garden?
And a calendar beautifully illustrated with botanical drawings to count down the days until spring?
And a mouse pad to keep your mouse moving smoothly as you click around the web reading Wildflower Wednesday posts and looking for seeds?
How about it, indeed!
Botanical Interests is sponsoring this giveaway which features a calendar, a mouse pad, and two seed mixes that will no doubt delight you with many blooms through summer and fall.
The first seed mix, “Save the Bees“, includes annual and perennial flowers and even some herbs chosen especially to attract bees and other pollinators.
The other seed mix, “Water-wise“, includes annual and perennial flowers that are drought-tolerant and by the way, they’ll attract bees and pollinators, too.
Using a seed mix is a great way start a wildflower garden, one that will provide enjoyment and surprises not only the first season of sowing, but for many seasons after that.
In addition to the two seed mixes offered in this giveaway, Botanical Interests also offers several other seed mixes including the Songbird Mix, Bring Home the Butterflies Mix, Hummingbird Haven, and the very intriguing Fairy Meadow Mix. (Hmmm… a mix of flowers that attracts garden fairies? Very intriguing…)
It’s easy to enter this giveaway! Just leave a comment below telling us about your favorite wildflower. That’s it!
Enter by Monday, January 31st at 9 pm EST and maybe you’ll start February with two free seed mixes, a calendar and a mouse pad.
