Give-Away Deadline Extended to Sunday at 6 pm

In honor of giving me a break (!) so I can get my design projects done today, I'm extending the deadline for my 5th Blogoverary Give-Away Extravaganza to tomorrow at 6 pm! Here's a reminder of what's up for grabs:

 Seed Sprouter from Botanical Interests

... and a million other packets of seeds for sprouting or planting (some "new for 2014")

To enter, just leave a comment here about anything related before 6 pm tomorrow night (Pacific Standard Time). (For more info about any of these companies, check my other posts over the last 2 weeks.)


  1. Thanks for the chance! I have a home garden where I grown tomatoes, peppers and lots of herbs. I also have a bunch of flowers throughout my property. With the cold weather here now, it was nice to think about my garden for next year!

  2. Nice! Thanks for the chance!

  3. Found you via facebook. Great giveaway!!

  4. Yes, thank you for the chance.

    Jeannie, we picked up an assortment of crocuses from a local nursary, only to realize that one package was C. sativus. We would love any hints on growing safrron crocus in Sacramento.

    1. Hi! I looked in my Sunset Western Garden book. It says, "Stigmas from a dozen flowers will season a good=size paella or similar dish. To get scontinuied good yield of saffron, divide corms as soon as leaves turn brown; replant in fresh or improved soil. Mark planting site with low-growing ground cover so you won't dig up the dormant bulbs. Also, to harvest saffron, pluck the stigmas as soon as flowers open, dry them, and store them in glass or plastic vials. Interesting, huh?

  5. I would love to win one.

  8. Hope I win. Thanks for the chance!

  9. This is a list of great gardening items. Thank you for sharing them with us. Especially 'A Tin of Seeds'... also makes a great gift.
