It's a celebration weekend! So it's competition time for a gardeners goodie bag...
As we're having a double celebration here in Ireland with St Patrick's Day today and Mothering Sunday tomorrow, what better time to share the happy mood than to have a prize giveaway!
The lovely Eoin Flaherty of Sow Easy Grow has kindly donated the fabulous prize for one lucky reader of the Greenside Up blog. This is one of four kits available to buy on their website or at garden centres and would make a great starter kit for anyone interested in growing vegetables (or for someone like me who's tools are wearing out!).
With our environment in mind, this Gardeners Delight Kit contains the newly launched GrowGrid, Seaweed Fertiliser, Biodegradable 3" pots, organic seeds and aloe vera gloves, all contained within a handy jute bag.
Eoin has a passion for fresh, seasonal vegetables that have been grown without using chemicals and like many of us, knows from personal experience how labour intensive weeding can be. As a result he came up with the idea of the GrowGrid, a product manufactured in Ireland.
The GrowGrid is a weed membrane that lies directly onto a prepared seed bed and is pegged down with the biodegradable pegs. Vegetables are sown or transplanted into the ready made holes that are punched at intervals to suite a wide variety of vegetable crops. There are four different mats available for different vegetable requirements and you can choose from 4m or 8m lengths by 1.5m wide.
So whether you're into gardening or you have a friend or relative who might enjoy this fabulous prize, it's very easy to enter. All you have to do is leave a comment in the box below that contains the words Sow Easy Grow or sign up for the monthly newsletter (scroll down the column on the right until you arrive at the Newsletter box - which will ensure you're in the draw if Blogger's playing up and you're unable to leave a comment.)
Apologies to all my further afield readers, but on this occasion the prize giveaway can only be mailed to addresses in Ireland and the UK (though if you have a relative or friend living there who might like to receive this lovely gift.....)
So why not give it a go ... and as it's a weekend of celebration and giving, please help to spread the word to everyone you know. The lucky winner will be chosen by a random generator next Saturday 24th March at 6.00pm.
AND THE WINNER IS......................... JENNY DOYLE! Congratulations Jenny. Hope this starts you on a new journey to grow your own! I'll be in touch regarding delivery.
