Deck Planter and Hanging Basket Giveaway - #7



THE GREAT GARDEN GIVEAWAY BONANZA #7

Did you think we were finished with The Great Garden Giveaway Bonanza? You ain't seen nothin' yet!!!
Now, it's time for the Safer brand company to step in. I didn't know until a few weeks ago that they are a sister company to Birdfeeders.com. Safer brand has been a favorite product of mine for a long time. I regularly use their insect killers, and fungicides. I like the fact that they are OMRI approved (Organic Material Review Institute) It's a great way to take care of your garden without harming the environment and your family.



Safer also has many garden decor items including planters. I don't have a deck, but when I finally do move, there will be one at the new house. I'm looking forward to using this deck planter. It's 24 inches long and includes brackets that adjust to fit your wooden railings from 3-6 inches wide.
Both of these planters come with coco liners. Coco liners are made from coco fiber, a natural byproduct from coconut farming in Sri Lanka (Ceylon). They retain the water and release it when the plant is dry. Less watering is easy on me and the environment.



Both the deck planter and the hanging basket are from the Antoinette Collection so the wrought iron design matches very nicely. The basket is 14 inches wide x 7 inches high. Both of these items are top quality, made by CobraCo. I'm sure they will look beautiful at my new home, and I know one of you lucky readers are going to enjoy them, as well. The two of these together retail for $50.00. Here's how you can win:




1. Leave a comment about something you learned at the Safer Brand.com site.


2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber with Feedburner, Feed Blitz, or become a Google Follower (see sidebar.) Then leave a second comment telling me you have subscribed or that you are already a subscriber.
If you subscribe in more than one way, leave a separate comment for each.

3. For a third chance to win, blog or Tweet about this contest with a link here, then come back and leave another comment telling me about it.


4. If you're not a blogger, be sure to leave your contact e-mail address like this to avoid spammers: pianananna(at)gmail(dot)com. If I don't have a way to reach you or you don't respond in three days, your name will be disqualified, and I will choose again, picking my favorite answer.

Good Luck!!


Open to US residents only, 18+.
Winners will be chosen by random.org.
Email addresses will not be shared with any third parties.
This Giveaway ends on Monday August 17, 2009 at midnight ET.
Watch the side bar for links to all 10 giveaways!

Designing Spaces - really informative and environmentally friendly by using Safer Brand Products. I just prevented a fly from repopulating the area - SWAT!
The planteris really pretty and love the coco liners.

mickeyfan said...

Parasitic wasps are tiny wasps that attack, paralyze and kill many kinds of insect pests. These wasps do not sting like other wasps, and most are so tiny, they can go completely unnoticed in your garden! (We use these in our chicken house to keep fly populations down...much safer than all the insecticides we used to use)

Wow, I had no idea you had to do this:

"Plants that have already been started indoors should be acclimated to the sunshine and weather before they are placed in the garden soil. Take the plants outside each day for about a week or so and place them in the sunlight for graduated periods of time throughout the week."

It makes sense, though - they're alive, don't want to put them through a shock. :-)

I would love to win! I live in an apartment and would totally use it. Thanks for the giveaway!
