Its a Giveaway on the blog!

Since spring is just around the corner, I thought this would be a good week to do a giveaway. I haven’t done one before so its my first. Be patient as I learn the ropes as a newbie. Spring arrived early here and I am sharing blooms from the garden. This week its a yellow theme going on with all the Narcissus in bloom along with Forsythia, Doronicum and Kerria. There is something about yellow that says spring.

What I love is how much variety we can have in our gardens, even in March. Lets show you what I have to give away this month. I attend lots of different garden events and sponsors are generous to hand out books, tools, seeds and other garden related items. On my last trip, I met up with Cool Springs Press and they had given each of the bloggers a garden journal kit in a cool swag bag.

So are you ready to win? Are you someone who could use a garden journal? They are great for making notes of what you have planted. It provides a record to look back on from year to year. It shows you what worked and what didn’t. We all need that kind of help.

So here is how you can enter. Just leave a comment below saying how you would use a garden journal and like my Face book page over at That Bloomin’ Garden. Thats it. You must be 18 years or older to enter and be a resident of Canada. Contest closes on March 31.

  1. I wish I’d started one 7 years ago when I bought my house with zero landscaping. For sure would record what I remember and would be awesome for rotation in my vegetable garden.

  2. I have filled the journal I have. I like to record what I plant and when. Also, when I fertilize. I try to make a decent drawing of what is planted where. Not good at that!

  4. What a great giveaway and I am jealous that you already have blooms, mine are deep under the snow and ice for the moment, gotta love northern Saskatchewan 🙂
    I would use the garden journal to keep track of both my gardens, in town and at the lake, so I would be able to know what to rotate each year. Right now I keep track of everything on scraps of paper, which works but not very well.

  6. I have used a journal in the past. It helps me rember what planted the year before and how each plant did. I then know not to grow the same thing or how to prove the plant

  8. Eeeee! We just started a hort club at our school this year and are trying to hype it up into a class. My dedicated ladies started their first seeds two weeks ago and I was just telling them today the importance of keeping notes. We just have a comp book but would LOVE something special like this. We are all learning the ropes together. Cool giveaway!

  10. I would love a journal. I have little scraps of paper everywhere with notes about what has been planted. Everyone knows what happens to scraps of paper.

  12. A gardening journal would be so much better to use than my calendar. Various tasks and plantings then harvest and yield could be better documented. Noting improvements or needs to discontinue plants or processes. I would like to write it as if it were for one of my children. That way it will be a detailed reference.

  14. If I win it I would surely keep a record of how my rose garden did and how every rose performed for future reference. It is hard to keep it all in my head. Thanks for offering.

  16. I would love to win the Journal. I have used them in the past to post dates, seed starting and progress,
    name and success of seeds, where purchased. ( I use only Heirloom Seeds and try a couple new ones
    each year. What a joy gardening is. Reduces stress and promotes exercise at the same time. I could note how much was provided for canning and freezing. Who ever receives this will enjoy I am sure.

  18. I really need a garden journal. My scraps of notes are so disorganized! With a journal i could control my seed buying addiction (even a little would help!) As well as planning rotations and pest control

  20. I have been looking for some way of organizing garden information from year to year. I would use it to record what works & what doesn’t in the garden, weather info, planting dates, first harvest dates of particular plants. A journal would be a great place to keep everything organized & make it easy to check what to plant year to year.

  24. I would use this journal to record to what and where I plant in my vegetable garden. Do some planning based on the tips that I learned from your workshop and make a reference for next year’s rotation.
