Nothing like a great not-a-raffle raffle to start off Spring! Some wonderful prizes from some terrific vendors!

Now if I have the luck of the Irish to actually win one of these raffles ..... Whistling

@dave, is there anyway we could have two raffles? One with U.S. companies, and one with European companies, in the future?

Absolutely. But I've never been contacted by a single European company wanting to participate in the raffles. As far as I know, they don't know we exist.

If someone in Europe wanted to get the ball rolling and get in touch with some companies over there that'd be fine by me.

Okay. Hurray!
Joy could you check up on Canadian nurseries?
I know some people in Europe/England.
What about the Asian countries? Anyone know of contacts for those?

I agree
Typing out my resignation as we speak, then I'm off to the potting shed to sulk and maybe pot up a few semps. Angry
