Maggie and Renee – our two winners! Check your email for the winning announcement and get back with me right away to claim your prize!
Valentine’s Day is almost here, followed by the much-anticipated floral Easter season, and I have a website address you may want to “plant” in your husband’s wallet: www.givingplants.com. The FedEx man recently paid a visit to my home and delivered a box from Giving Plants. It was about 6º that morning and I was scared that my plant, overnighted from sunny California, had possibly experienced some sort of shock over the more than chilly conditions. But my tropical bromiliad was safe in his box, packed with extreme care and lots of wrapping about his pot to protect the roots.
I once had a bromeliad. It was the first houseplant anyone ever gave to me. I was 17 and felt very grownup to own such a plant. I watered it every day – and gave it root rot. I was devastated. Fortunately, this bromeliad came with care instructions.
I’m happy to report my plant has been in my custody for two weeks now and looks great. Is that something you can say for a dozen roses? Nope. After two weeks they’re nothing more than compost and a memory. Giving Plants is a terrifically green way to give a little piece of nature – something that will thrive and grow just like your love!
Giving Plants even has gifts for your little ones, including these darling Nyokki Pets! Children can planttheir own rye grass within the Japanese-made ceramic containers. Watching the grass grow has never been so fun. Starting at just $8.95 each, they’re an economical and educational gift that will outlast the chocolate bunny.
Giving Plants is giving away two of these little darlings to two dkMommy Spot readers. Winners will get their choice of a Froggie or a Bunny Nyokki Pet. Hop to it – spring’s approaching!
