Avant Garden Hanging Basket Giveaway #2

The Avant Garden Queen Elizabeth Hanging Basket is Number Two in my All Summer Long Garden/Birder Giveaway ! The Avant Garden giveaway is so fantastic that I am breaking it down into two giveaways this week and two next week. I'm sure you're going to love them all and want to be a part of this.


This week TWO lucky winners will be the fortunate ones chosen to receive this wonderful hanging basket. It is very well constructed of a solid metal with a coco liner which holds and releases moisture as needed. The only downfall I could find was that the birds loved the grass and they continued to pick and pull on it throughout their nest building season. Once that was past, they left it alone and it is holding up very well. I love the look of these planters; it beats hanging the white plastic ones that come from the greenhouse. You'll be able to use these Avant Garden Baskets for years to come and also save money by creating your own arrangements with the colors and plants you like best.


Here's how to enter:


If your chose to do any or all of these entries be sure to leave a separate comment for each.


1. Leave a comment after visiting the Avant Garden web site about something you'd love to own. Tell my why or add a story about your experience with container gardening...
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.)  
3. For a third chance to win, blog, Tweet, or Facebook about this contest with a link here.


4. For a fourth chance to win, subscribe to the Avant Garden E-Newsletter at the bottom of their page.
5. 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 Sunday,June 26, 2011 at midnight ET.
avantgardendecor.com provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it; nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

I would love the Cobra Co Bravo Fire Pit. My family and I love to sit around the fire pit in the evening and discuss the days events.

I would love to own this Chair stand plant holder. It is so adorable. And my family knows I'm a very eclectic gardener, using all kinds of found things to put in my garden or display things. So this chair would fit right in.

WOULD love CobraCo® Queen Elizabeth Parasol Style Hanging Basket, Bronze..they are all beautiful as well as the hose holder...we started a garden this year for the first time in 25 years- seriously the kids are loving the watching and blooming- we had tornadoes rip thru 3x and ruin the garden and seeds got messed up so we decided to continue to water and see what grows where and also did alot of pot gardening and container gardening- the one thing that surprises me is the sweet potatoes growing so fast in the container

I like the CobraCo® Two-Tiered Garden Cart. My experience with container gardening is at work - at home I'd rather plant things in the ground (except houseplants.) At work I'm kind of the plant girl - hardly anybody has plants, and I have 6.
