Renee's Garden Seeds & Cookbook Giveaway


Today I have a nice little giveaway draw that includes a couple of packages of Renee's Garden Seeds and a cookbook with recipes and growing advice for kitchen gardeners (or those flower gardeners, like me, who cook with fresh produce from local farmer's markets).


The seeds are Berry Basket Zinnias and Heirloom Apricot 'Faerie Queen' Foxgloves. The double zinnias comes in lovely shades of raspberry, grape, violet and rose-pink.

A few of the apricot foxgloves that bloomed last June.

I try to grow some foxgloves every year for the following spring (foxgloves are a biennial). Usually I grow pink flowers, but last June I had these nice peach ones. They were just lovely, so I am sure the winner will like these seeds.

The Renee's Garden website recommends starting the foxglove indoors (probably because the seeds are teeny-tiny), but I have always had good luck sowing them directly in my nursery flowerbed
(learn more about growing foxgloves here.)

Many thanks to Renee's Garden Seeds for providing a garden cookbook for me to give away. If you're not the lucky draw winner, you can order a copy of the cookbook online. If you'd like to grow some zinnias or foxgloves, most good nurseries sell Renee's Garden Seeds.

Because this book will go to a winner through the mail, we will have to limit entry to readers in Canada and the USA. 

Please leave a comment below, if you would like to be included in the book draw. The contest will remain open for just a week. If you are not a blogger, you can enter by liking the Three Dogs in a Garden Facebook page (there is an additional link to the Facebook page at the bottom of the blog). You are also welcome to enter by sending me an email (jenc_art@hotmail.com).

  4. Foxgloves! I love them and I'm frequently told that they will reseed but mine never do. I could use these seeds and the recipe book for my veggie garden produce.

  8. Foxgloves grow very well here on the island. I always have lots of fat little plants at the end of each summer to move around for blooms the next year. I will never say 'no' to the possibility of a new cookbook - what a lovely idea for a draw!
