Spring Fever Free Seed Giveaway

06 Feb
Spring Fever Free Seed Giveaway

It is #Gardengiveaway time. I’m talking FREE SEEDS. I know that I probably speak for a few of my Northern friends when I say, “We need the sun!” We’re not exactly happy with the groundhog right now either.

Here in the Southern zone  of 7A, we can see the lackluster-colored ground. We have no snow. No ice. We aren’t experiencing anything like our Northern friends who are blanketed with both. Who shovel snow, and have to walk to work.

Still we grow weary of winter.

Our fingers itch to scratch the dirt; we long to watch our little seeds emerge from the soil.

The mailbox bulges with seed catalogs.

We just can’t wait much longer for spring to arrive. (At least I can’t). That is why I am tickled to giveaway FREE SEEDS courtesy of Botanical Interests. Botanical Interests is the brainchild of Judy Seaborn and Curtis Jones.  Judy at an early age could be found in the garden, her hands touching the dirt. Twenty years ago, Judy wanted to create a company that both provided high-quality seeds for veteran gardeners, and, educated newbies who were planting for the first time. When Curtis offered their glorious seeds to you-my readers- I snatched up that offer snappy quick.

An EXAMPLE of seeds available. Seeds awarded will vary from picture.

Because for a gardener nothing could be better than FREE Seeds. (except maybe free beans and tomatoes).

What’s the catch?

Well, really the only way I can give away the free seeds is to ask y’all to leave a comment on my blog. I’ll ask my daughter to pick a random number and whoever left that particular comment will receive the seeds. So please, leave a comment, any ole comment. Your words are your registration.

I will contact the winner and ship the seeds.

It really is that easy. Oh, and you might want to consider subscribing to my blog. One never knows what I might give away next .

This is what community looks like my friends. Happy growing from the staff at Botanical Interests, Inc

Note: The winner is expected to take a photo of their winning so that Botanical Interests and others know that I am awarding the seeds. Please note that I ship at my own expense directly from my home. All comments left here and in future posts are considered entries. I will pull a name each weekend thru the end of February.

I also encourage you to order a catalog from Curtis and Judy. They do more than sell seeds, they support the local food bank. Follow this link to place an order.

    Yes! Just as I was enjoying seeing the green of bulbs pushing up thru the soil and the tips of branches swelling with new life, I wake to 19*! What??? I’m a firm believer that if we must have winter temps, we should have at least a bit of snow for good measure! Thanks for the opportunity to win these seeds, I hope lots of people join in on the fun!

    I hear ya! I just moved to a new area thats zone 7a ( from a zone 9 area) , and I don’t know what to do with myself except keep looking at seed catalogs and wistfully staring at the outside thermometer reading in the 30s. I feel like a squirrel, hoarding seed packets and trying to curb my enthusiasm to plant something.

    Renea, I am also itching to get in the dirt, got some heirloom packs of seeds to look at. Someone said now we can start some seeds indoors for tomatoes, I love to watch little seedlings come up! Not sure how I could keep them warm, though. Do you ever start seeds indoors?

    yes! I have been fussing around with all of my indoor plants bothering and badgering them. I even moved on to the outdoors and pruned my roses as they have all leafed out anyway not waiting for any forsythia’s to bloom…. I am so excited to get things growing again 😀

    This would be great for my 4 year old granddaughter. We have started some seeds and we had a couple of the seeds sprout and she was overjoyed! I’m teaching her how to appreciate nature, animals, pollinators, and plants alike, and how to be self sustaining.

    I can’t wait to bury my hands in the first fresh warm dirt of the season..there’s no better feeling in the world! Unfortunately, my gardens are all covered by 4 ft of snow right now….but I know it’s all under there somewhere! Botanical Interests is my favorite seed company…the seed packets are works of art!

    Every time this pops up on Twitter, I reblog it, but despite WANTING seeds, I really don’t NEED seeds. And BI seeds are great. So wonderful.

    Thank you for coordinating with Botanical Interests. I would appreciate establishing my garden with annual and perennial seeds. As a low budget gardener, this would help tremendously. I give away food at harvest time. Your seeds will help with this as well.
