Burpee Lavender Giveaway

It's been quite some time since I ran a giveaway, and at least three years since I've worked with Burpee. Recently I was browsing through their online catalog, when I discovered something I had not noticed before!  Burpee sells ready to plant vegetables, herbs, and perennials. I had always thought of them as a seed company and garden supplier. How had I missed this?



After contacting Burpee, we agreed to a test run of lavender, my all-time favorite herb and then a giveaway of 6, yes SIX, Provence Blue Lavender plants to my readers. My package arrived within a few days, in a nice sturdy box. 





Looking inside I saw what care was taken to protect the plants during shipping. These plants would not move, even if the box was turned upside down.  As a matter of fact, it was a little struggle to get them out.





Look at how healthy these are. The leaves are soft, fresh, and fragrant. I guess I was expecting little twigs bubble-wrapped in a mailing envelope.  I should have known better. Everything about Burpee is quality.

If this looks good to you, and you want to give Burpee your own test run on perennials, sign up now to win one lavender plant. 
Hrre's how to enter:
If you subscribe in more than one way, leave a separate comment for each.
1. Leave a comment after visiting the Burpee.com web site about your favorite perennial..
2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber (see sidebar.) 
3. For a third chance to win, blog, Tweet, or Facebook about this contest showing your link here. 
4. For a 4th chance to win subscribe to my twitter account @daylilythyme.

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 Saturday, May 25th at midnight ET.

Burpee provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose; nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

Hollyhock, Chaters Pink would be perfect because I live in a very sunny climate all year and this plant would be so happy here.
