Pegplant’s Post Gardening Newsletter always has a giveaway, an opportunity to win a free plant or gardening-related product. For the upcoming November 2023 issue of Pegplant’s Post, subscribers have a chance to win a 12-variety package of microgreen seeds from True Leaf Market.
This package has 12, one-ounce packets of seeds that grow well as microgreens: broccoli, purple radish, spicy salad mix, beet, nasturtium, cilantro, garden cress, sunflower, pak choi, shiso, orach, and pea. Microgreens are small, about 2-inch-tall plants that have just started growing. They are very high in nutrition and can be grown in your home. The True Leaf Market website has videos explaining each plant and how to grow them as microgreens. Based in Utah, True Leaf Market is an independent, non-GMO seed company offering everything from flower, herb, and garden seeds to microgreens, sprouts, wheat grass, and grains. They also have growing kits, juicers, pet products, fermentation products, and hydroponic and gardening supplies. Their website provides a range of resources and information including videos and FAQs on topics such as starting seeds, winter gardening success, shade vegetables, sprouting, wheat grass, mushrooms, and microgreens. True Leaf Market has a loyalty rewards program, a free newsletter, and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
In order to be eligible for this giveaway you have to be a subscriber. The first subscriber to email once the November issue is published (which will be sent to subscribers’ email box the last weekend of October) wins the giveaway.
