The March 2018 Not-A-Raffle-Raffle!

Posted by @dave on
We know Spring has arrived (or is arriving) because we get to announce the first raffle of the year! Enjoy!

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:

Thumb of 2018-03-08/dave/795147Hollingsworth Peonies is providing one root of peony 'Minuet'. 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.

Thumb of 2017-03-09/dave/24b7daVictory 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.

Thumb of 2013-12-10/dave/3557ebBrushwood Nursery is providing the plant Clematis 'Sugar-Sweet Lilac' shipped to you! Brushwood Nursery ships beautiful vines and climbers throughout the United States directly to your door. We have hundreds of different climbers available like Clematis, Climbing Roses, Passion Flowers, Honeysuckles and much more.

Thumb of 2016-07-11/dave/57b4b7Perfect Plants is providing three prizes to three different winners. Prize #1: $50 gift card for their store. Prizes #2 and #3: 3 one-gallon roses of the winners choice. 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!

Thumb of 2018-03-08/dave/d30e59Green Valley Supply is providing their awesome 34" square galvanized steel raised bed. Green Valley Supply products are made with gardeners in mind. We believe in improving and enabling gardening as a daily part of life.

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 March 22 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 24 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!
