|FREE GIVEAWAY - A RARE STENOMESSON PIERCEI BULB, and one that it BLOOMING SIZE. |
JUST FOLLOW THE RULES BELOW, AND ADD A COMMENT TO THIS POST TO ENTER. I WILL USE A RANDOMIZER SITE TO SELECT THE WINNER THIS FRIDAY AT NOON.
I've decided to join the ranks of some of the other top-ten garden bloggers, and start having periodic giveaways, but I am going to do it differently. Instead of giving away my book, or free product donated by other companies, I have decided to make my giveaways something a bit more unusual - like, some of my rare bulbs, seeds or plants I and an occasional book that I might have ordered two of by accident!).
The rules are simple, All you need do is some of these things. ( my randomizer will calculate who is the winner, so it doesn't matter if you do more than three of the following things.
1. Add a comment the easiest way to enter. Just add the words BULB CONTEST. I will announce the winner on FRIDAY. You can then email me your mailing address.
2."like" this post or blog if you have not already.
3. Become a follower, if you are not already
4. Add a RSS link, if you have not already.
5. Doing something 'viral' to help promote my blog. ( just let me know). I might have a special prize for you!
OK, full-disclosure here, this is mostly about increasing my ratings, my RSS subscriber numbers, that's why other blogs do giveaways, but if I'm going to do giveaways, I know that my readers what extraordinary prizes, most likely, prizes not available anywhere, even on rare bulb sites or eBay.
I say 'mostly' because at the same time, I love sharing some of my extra bulbs, seeds and junk that I know you will love, and I think this might be the best way. I only get a few to share, and I rather not sell them.
This first week, my giveaway is an awesome one - a large, blooming size bulb of the South American native STENOMESSON PIERCEI. You may remember it blooming in my greenhouse last January. Easy to grow, it likes three months of dry conditions and then moisture, to stimulate it to send up a bud. These are highly difficult bulbs to find, and they are rarely available anywhere except from collectors.
