The March 2017 Not-A-Raffle-Raffle!

Posted by @dave on
It's the first raffle of the year and we've got 7 prizes total from 4 different companies. If you have acorns, get them out and buy some tickets for a chance to win!

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:

Perfect Plants is providing three 1-gallon sized roses to four different winners. Winners will be notified of availability and will get to choose their colors of Drift® and or Knock Out® Roses. Both of these series of roses have changed how we think of roses, as they are highly disease resistant, re-blooming and require little specialized care. Limited to USA and excludes California, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii. Perfect Plants is a family owned and operated nursery based in North Florida.  Our 35 years extensive experience began in 1980 with our father's purchase of the land that was to become our nursery.  The desire for our high standards to be able to reach more individual consumers is what began our online operations.  We strive to offer a diverse selection of hand-chosen and carefully packaged plants in hopes to deliver exactly what our name suggests: Perfect Plants!

Victory Seed Company is providing a $25 gift certificate to their store. The Victory Seed Company is a family owned and operated, small farm-based organization working to keep rare and threatened plant varieties available to home gardeners. All of their seeds are open-pollinated, open source, non-hybrid, and not chemically treated. As an early signer of the "Safe Seed Pledge" they will never knowingly sell GMO seeds. Many of the varieties are family heirlooms, most are old standard varieties that are hard to find.

Oakes Daylilies is providing a $50 gift certificate to their store. For the biggest daylilies you've ever received, try Oakes Daylilies. Choose from over 400 varieties in a rainbow of colors, shapes and size, freshly-dug, guaranteed to thrive in your garden. Daylily specialists for over 30 years.

Old House Gardens - Heirloom Bulbs is providing Heirloom Bulbs for Spring Planting, for hardiness zones 4a-8a (4a-10bWest Cost). You'll get:

1 'Gracchus' Iris (from 1884, freshly dug from our Ann Arbor micro-farms),
1 'Prince Noir' Dahlia (1954, perfect for bouquets),
3 'Mexican Single' Tuberoses (since 1530, ravishingly fragrant), and
5 'Atom' small-flowered Glads (1946, hummingbird favorite),
along with complete planting and care information. Old House Gardens is America's only mail-order source devoted entirely to heirloom bulbs, many of them available nowhere else. Our heirlooms are tough, gorgeous, and different, and our superb quality and service have won us devoted customers all across the country. Please come see everything we have to offer at www.oldhousegardens.com.

Lastly, I will give 50 acorns each to the 3 remaining winners.

As always, the ticket buying window is open now and will close on Friday, March 24th 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.

This raffle is now closed!
