Win a Sunflower Garden Seed Collection from The Gardener’s Workshop
For our June 2017 Washington Gardener Magazine Reader Contest, Washington Gardener is giving away the Seed Collection, Sunflower Garden from The Gardener’s Workshop (each seed collection is a $23 value).
This collection represents all the colors and sizes of the sunflower family. If the flowers are left in the garden the birds will flock to feast on the delicious seeds. This collection requires full sun. Seeds may be planted directly in the garden after the last frost.
What began as a small cut-flower farm producing for local markets has grown into so much more. The Gardener’s Workshop has become a leader in the cut-flower growing industry. They are based in Newport News, VA, and can be found online at https://www.thegardenersworkshop.com
The seeds they offer are the same they plant and grow in their own garden for sale as cut flowers. They only select easy-to-start seeds that are strong growers.
This collection has seeds for six different sunflowers and includes a diagram and tips for planting the garden.
To enter to win the sunflower seed collection, send an email to WashingtonGardener@rcn.com by 5pm on Wednesday, June 30, with “Sunflowers” in the subject line and in the body of the email. Tell us which was your favorite article in the June 2017 Washington Gardener Magazine issue and why. Please also include your full name and mailing address. The seed collection winner will be announced and notified on July 1.
UPDATE: The winner is Joanna R. Protz of Virginia
