Seeds of the Month Club {Giveaway!} [Closed]


For my second giveaway, I am thrilled to announce the prize is a year-long membership to the Seeds of the Month Club!!!

I was recently introduced to this company by another blog who had nothing but good things to say about it. That blog was doing a giveaway and I entered. Unfortunately I didn't win but now I keep up with Mike the Gardener through Facebook and the blog they have.

Seeds of the Month Club is a simple and fantastic program. For less than $38 you get a one year subscription. The first shipment includes 8 different packs of seeds! For the rest of the year you receive 4 packs of seeds each month. That's a lot of seeds for only $3.11 per month! Can't beat that price anywhere!

Here are the other great features of the membership:


I'm not sure what I love more...the fact that it's priced so well, the free shipping, the fact that they're guaranteed non-GMO or that it's all made right here in the good ol' USA! 


They send out a large variety of seeds, you'll always be pleasantly surprised when you open the mail box!


This is a picture from their Facebook page that a very satisfied customer sent in. Here's what Juliet Swedlund said, "Bought my Dad a Seed of the Month subscription for his birthday in March. Everything he has received so far has produced! Thank you!"


I love everything about this company. They're doing business the right way. They're also especially good about keeping up with their customers through social media. They have multiple Facebook pages too so be sure to check them out (and get more entries in the process!).

If you don't win, be sure to buy a membership so you can get a head start on your gardening for next spring! And remember, a Seeds of the Month membership is also a great gift idea!

DETAILS!

    1. Certain onions can be grown from kitchen scraps! Just cut the bottom root-end off leaving about an inch of the onion. Then either plant it directly or place it in some water till it regrows roots enough to plant!
