Silver Plant Markers - Giveaway

Written by Carolyn on August 30th, 2012.      78 comments

This week marks my 50th post on behalf of Kings Seeds on this blog, so I thought we could celebrate by having a giveaway.  (Thanks to Karen and Barb and Gerard who also contribute to our blog.)

Giveaway - Silver Herb Markers
 

markers 7I have been making plant markers for my home garden - they are made from vintage silver-plated spoons.  

It has been a lot of fun making these with my little girl.  It is also quite therapeutic being outside bashing away with a hammer after a very busy day at Kings Seeds.  

Besides looking pretty in the herb garden, I am hoping that these markers will also have the bonus effect of helping the children choose the right herb when I ask them to pop outside and pick me some parsley or basil.

So, if you would like a set of these plant markers, here is your opportunity.

We have this set of five plant markers to give away.  These would look lovely in your herb garden!


So - what do you have to do to enter the giveaway?

It is terribly easy.  Simply make a comment on this blog post and you will be in the draw to win this set of five plant markers.  We will randomly draw a winner in a week's time and the winner will be announced next Friday (7th September) in our blog post. 

How do I make a comment?

Click on the line under the blog heading (Silver Plant Markers - Giveaway) where it tells you how many comments have been placed.  Then scroll to the bottom of this blog entry and click on "share your comments".  Enter your comment and hey presto....you are in the draw!

For those of you who are interested in having a go at making these yourselves, there are lots and lots of how-to tutorials on the internet - (click here for a tutorial).  You can make your markers using either the "spoon" or the handle end - I like the pretty patterns on these spoon handles and have therefore used the handle end.  I hope you like your giveaway and...
 

...Good Luck with the draw!

Sow parsley, sage, coriander and basil,
and to top it off a wee bit of dazzle!

This is truly garden bling, love the idea!
