A Huge Roses Not-A-Raffle-Raffle-Ganza!

Posted by @dave on
This is our biggest raffle we've ever done, with not 1, not 2, not even 3, but FOUR huge prizes for 4 lucky winners!

First up, in honor of roses week, we reached out to our friends at The Antique Rose Emporium and asked if they were interested in participating, and they certainly delivered. Additionally, three ATP members have stepped up to each offer a book of their own as prizes.

So, without further ado, here's the prizes run-down:

The first place grand prize winner will receive a package from The Antique Rose Emporium, which will contain a copy of Mike Shoup's wonderful new book, Empress of the Garden, AND two fragrant old garden rose plants.

The 2nd through 4th place winners will each receive a book. The 2nd place winner gets the first choice, and then the next winner gets the next choice and the final winner gets the book that remains.

The first book offered is The Rose Bible, generously provided by Calif_Sue.
