As the we await the announcement of the winners I thought I'd do a little something to help pass the time...

Tell us about the item you are most hoping to have a chance at winning and why. For each response to this thread that answers those items I will gift 2 acorns. Limit one 'gift' per member. This offer will remain open till the announcement video is posted.


I, personally, am hoping for a chance at Victory Seeds. Perfect time of year for me as I get ready to begin veggie season. I've gotten seeds from them before and have had very good results.

I have more seeds than I can use so the peony or clematis are tops on my list. After that the raised bed. Not sure where I would put it but I would find a spot. nodding

I also would like the Victory Seeds coupon. I volunteer at a local elementary school and we have quite a large garden that the students help plant and harvest. It is a nonprofit and can always use donations. I would share my prize with them.

Personally I am hoping for a Perfect Plants prize, I have my eye on either a crab apple or redbud that I would gift for my kids in Michigan. Either plant would be spectacular in their front yard! As neighbors drove down their block every spring, either plant would present a gorgeous image to those who see it.
Since I am moving there I would get to enjoy my gift as well!!👍

I changed to raised beds this year, and would love to have another. The rest of you, hands off the raised bed.

I'd either drift roses or the gift coupon from Perfect Plants. If that's taken, I'd like the raised bed. Sorry TK, it may be mine. Whistling

I'm also counting on winning the Victory Seeds gift certificate. I donate the seeds to community gardens and to our public seed library. And I've also shared some with other NGA members.

These are darned good seeds.

Decisions, decisions! A rose would be nice. A Peony would be nice. A Clematis would be nice. But I certainly would not turn down any of the others either. I would just be happy to win anything. Crossing Fingers!

I would love to win any of the prizes, but since I can no longer bend down garden, the raised bed would be a godsend.
