Announcing a September Not-A-Raffle-Raffle!

Posted by @dave on
This month's raffle, brought to you by Joannabanana, is a beautiful and highly useful book on roses!

Thumb of 2012-09-10/Joannabanana/79b3f1The first place prize in this month's raffle is the book described below:

Growing Roses in Calgary is a book published by The Calgary Rose Society, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting roses.

Don't let the title of the book fool you; this is a wonderful book for anyone growing roses anywhere. There are three sections: Rose Information, Rose Selection and Reference.

The photos are gorgeous and mostly taken from The Calgary Rose Society members. Joanne especially likes the photos of the pests & diseases to help identify problems.Thumb of 2012-09-13/dave/28d62e

I'm sure the winner of this book will be pleased to add this to their collection of gardening reference materials.

One of our resident rose experts, Zuzu, already has this book and when I asked her opinion of it, she responded, "This is a beautiful and highly useful rose book, Dave."

For more information about the book, and a sneak-peek, please check this page here. There are also some great book reviews about this book.

If you want to order the book directly, rather than take your chances with the raffle, please note: the online ordering is not set up with individual delivery costs outside Canada. If you are outside Canada, there is contact information on ordering the book.

Joanne will send the book directly to the winner.

The second and third place winners will each receive an All Things Plants coffee mug, shipped to you by me.

Tickets are available starting now until the end of the day Monday, September 18th. The drawing will take place on September 19th.

Good luck everyone!

This raffle is now closed!
