The Sempervivum Not-A-Raffle-Raffle

Posted by @dave on
Such a diminutively cute plant needs to have an equally gigantic raffle, and that is exactly what we have for you this week. Come and view the table set out with prizes galore for a whole group of lucky winners!

It's Raffle Time again, and this time in honor of Sempervivum week, we have put together a collection of Sempervivum prizes. Before we begin, though, I want to say a very special thank you to valleylynn for contacting the companies and inviting them to participate. This raffle is what it is, precisely and solely because of Lynn's great legwork in getting this ball rolling for us. Thank you, Lynn!

There are four grand prizes here, and each winner (in order) gets to take their pick of which prize they want. So the first place winner gets to choose first! All of these companies come highly recommended! Here are the prizes in random order: #1: A $100 gift certificate from Young's Garden Gift and Pond.

Young's Garden is a very popular retail garden center in Oregon who also sells their plants online. They have a great selection of sedums and sempervivums (and much more). #2: A plug tray collection of 36 different named varieties from North Hills Nursery.

North Hills Nursery specializes in Sempervivum, sedum, collections, dish gardens and hypertufa. Their website has beautiful pictures of the numerous varieties they grow. #3: 10 varieties, mix or match, of Sempervivums and Sedums, from Perennial Obsessions.

Perennial Obsessions is a small Mom and Pop nursery, also located in Oregon, with a beautiful website loaded with these beautiful plants. They are collectors of hardy succulents, hardy rock garden perennials, grasses, Hebe, and a few trees. #4: A $25 gift certificate to The Sempervivum Patch.

The Sempervivum Patch is a new store, recently opened by our own goldfinch4! Offering top quality sempervivum plants, planting containers, plant markers and fairy garden accessories. Many unique one of a kind items.


Now, as if that were not enough, once we pick these 4 winners, we will then pick five additional winners to each receive a PS-1L quart of Plantskydd Animal Repellent. Animal Repellent for annuals, shrubs, perennials, fruit trees, conifers and deciduous trees is effective  for deer, rabbits, elk, moose and other herbivores. 100% natural and proven protection for up to 6 months on dormant plants and 3-4 months during the active growing season, it will not wash off in the rain and is rain fast in 24 hours.  Plantskydd lasts twice as long as other repellents because of reduced application frequency and cost.  OMRI listed for organic production, Plantskydd is available in a pre-mixed liquid, a powder formula and now in granular form.

So there will be 9 winners total in this raffle, and each ticket is another chance to win! The ticket buying window is now open and will remain open until this Wednesday at 6:00pm Central time. The drawing will be done on Thursday. Tickets cost 5 acorns each. Don't know what acorns are? Click here to learn about acorns, and how to get them. Good luck to all participants!

This raffle is now closed!
