autumn seedball giveaway
I love the first of September. New pencils and children back to school (I’d love to say I was one of those mothers who loved their children gambolling round their feet for the glorious six weeks of fun, but, er, I’m not) and rosehips and sloe gin and jam and candles and oh, you know.
I am notorious for ooh-THIS-is-my-favourite season posts four times a year. But oh I love, love, love autumn in the garden and here’s more autumn in the garden and oh look, it’s autumn in the garden again. Three posts all full of previous hooray-it’s-autumn waffle.
Project MAYA works to promote environmental sustainability following the principles of permaculture and their aim is to facilitate a more sustainable society through education, research, enterprise and campaigns.
The SEED:Ball Store is run by project MAYA, with all profits used to fund their activities to help make the world a better, happier, and more sustainable place.
I’m excited about spreading the word about Project MAYA and sharing a bit of gardening happiness at the same time – they’re going to send one reader of Tales from the Village a present:
A SEED:Ball Butterfly pack, which contains 20 seedballs with
Forget-me-not (Myosotis arvensis), Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus), Wild marjoram (Origanum vulgare), and Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria).
There’s also 20 poppy seedballs and a whole pack of gorgeous forget-me-not – all of which just have to be scattered into your garden now for a beautiful wildflower display in spring.
All you have to do is leave a comment. I’ll choose a winner using the patented put-all-the-names-in-a-bucket technique (video to follow) next Friday, 7th September.
Don’t forget you can like Tales from the Village on Facebook for conversations about Robert Downey Jr gardening topless and discussions on how to work from home without going mad or eating your children (answer: gin) and you can find me on Twitter where I’m usually found tweeting from the bath with a glass of red wine in hand. Have a fab weekend.
PS: to leave a comment you have to scroll aaaaaaaaall the way down to underneath all the comments where the leave a comment box lives. I have no idea why, and I can’t figure out how to fix it.
One more thing: this giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere! You don’t have to be living in the UK to enter. R x
And the winner (out of 31 entries) was
commenter no. 27 – Pamela Audrey MacKinnon. I’ll email and we’ll arrange to have the Seedballs sent straight to you!
