Thank you Longfield Gardens for the opportunity to host the amaryllis giveaway. I enjoyed reading people’s comments so much that I am sharing a few to illustrate how people love to share plants and how plants and gardening gives joy in our lives. Just an FYI, to pick the winner randomly, I wrote names on slips of paper, inserted them in a Valentine’s box, and asked my family (3 people) to draw slips. I then put the three slips back in the box and pulled the final winner. Congratulations Ruth Carolyn Campbell. Send me your address via http://www.pegplant.com. Happy Valentine’s Day!
I would give them to my mom.
While I would love to have 2 more for myself, I would probably send them to my parents. They love amaryllis.
I would keep one for spring beauty and give the other to my daughter for a mad dash of color in her snowy world.
I would plant them and when they were just about ready to bloom, I would give one to each of my two daughters.
I would give these bulbs to my mom. She turns 70 this year and we are having a surprise birthday party for her.
I would keep them as a houseplant by the window – where all I now see is a deep blanket of white outside – that could use some bright color inside for cheery contrast.
I’d plant these for my mother to enjoy.
I would pot one up for myself and the second for my good friend.
Amaryllis isn’t just for Christmas, it actually makes a great Valentine’s Day gift. These large bulbs will bloom indoors from November through April. Longfield Gardens, an online source of spring and summer bulbs, perennials, and edibles, would like for you to receive TWO free amaryllis bulbs. Just enter your name, e-mail, and a comment below in the comment section as to what you would do if you received TWO bulbs!! On Saturday, February 14, I will pick a random entry and announce one lucky winner on my site at http://www.pegplant.com as well as my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pegplant. This giveaway starts today, Saturday, February 7, and ends at midnight on Friday, February 13. Entries must be from the U.S. This photo is just to illustrate a cute way to use amaryllis flowers; the actual varieties that the winner will receive may vary. To see more types of amaryllis plants as well as growing information, visit Longfield Garden’s web site at http://www.longfield-gardens.com. Happy Valentine’s Day!!
