The June 2016 Not-A-Raffle-Raffle!

Posted by @dave on
We have a huge collection of prizes put together for this month's raffle. Come check it out!

Here we go again with another Not-a-Raffle Raffle. Why is this not a regular raffle? Well, in a regular raffle, you pay for the tickets with money. But in NGA raffles, you buy your tickets with acorns. Tickets cost 5 acorns each. Don't know what acorns are? Click here to learn about acorns, and how to get them.

Important note: these prizes are all only available to members in the United States. I'm really sorry for those in other countries, but the complications and expense of shipping things to other countries is just too difficult and costly to arrange with the various companies. For this reason, we have made the decision to limit the contest to United States winners only. If you are outside the US, you can still participate, but if you win you will need to gift the prize to another member of your choice.

Good luck to all participants, and now let's talk about the prizes:

Caladium Bulbs 4 Less is providing (25) Mixed Grade #1 size caladium bulbs. At Caladium Bulbs 4 Less, we are Your Caladium Bulb Super Store!! Our goal is to provide you with the Freshest, Top Quality Caladium Bulbs available! In addition to offering Caladiums we also offer several other Tropical Bulbs. We also have the Double Pearl Tuberose and 4 different types of Elephant Ears available.

Victory Seed Company is providing a $25 gift certificate to help get your garden growing. It's the perfect time for direct sowing your garden.

Hollingsworth Peonies is providing one 'Garden Treasure' Peony. 'Garden Treasure' is a yellow Itoh hybrid peony which was bred by Don Hollingsworth (the company founder). It still is the industry standard for planters and much desired for its fragrant yellow flowers . The large golden yellow flowers are supported by sturdy stems that are clad in deep green foliage. The foliage is reminiscent of tree peonies providing an excellent background for the blooms. The bloom is staggered since each flowering shoot produces numerous side buds that extend flowering for to up to 3 weeks or more in northern climates. 'Garden Treasure' is a Best Landscaper Peony and does not need staking to hold up the flowers.

The bare root peonies will be shipped in the fall - around mid October. If the winner is located in Alaska we can ship in September to accommodate. For all other states October is appropriate. Please note peonies do not grow well in FL, Southern California and areas south of I-20.

This prize is only available to winners within the geographic limitations outlined above. Hollingsworth Peonies - your peony farm, where we guarantee variety - peonies are what we do!

This is your one stop web-site for everything about peonies. How to grow peonies, how to divide and plant, and of course your guaranteed variety source. Always American Grown, we do not resell imports.

The Sempervivum Patch is providing a $35 gift certificate to their store. Non-US winners may substitute for a gift certificate from Garden Buddies. The Sempervivum Patch is a small on-line nursery to share my love of sempervivum by offering you top quality plants at a price that allows you to expand your collection without going broke. Top quality sempervivum plants, planting containers, plant markers and accessories. Many unique one of a kind items.


As always, the ticket buying window is open now and will close on June 29th at 7:00pm Central time. The drawing will be done and posted the following day. The first place winner gets first pick of all the prizes, and then the second winner picks, and so forth until all prizes are claimed. Important note for winners: If you are contacted as a winner and asked to choose a prize you have 48 hours to respond with your choice. If you do not respond within that time, the next placed winner will be contacted and allowed to pick.
