Hellebores Book Give-Away!

Would you like a chance to receive The Gardener's Guide to Growing Hellebores, by Graham Rice?
It's the paperback edition (below)...and it's brand new! It's published by 'The Royal Horticultural Society' in the UK.


Please leave a comment and let me know if you want to be entered for a chance to win a free copy of this lovely book, published in 2008. **If you mention this in a post on your blog or a link on your sidebar, you will be entered 5 more times! (But you'll need to let me know so I can include you in the extra 5 entries!).

I will leave this opportunity available until Sunday, April 5th, at 12 noon EST. I will draw a name from the entries and maybe your name will be chosen! I will announce the lucky winner on Monday, April 6th!

I am very excited to be offering you this book about Hellebores! (There is nothing in this for me; I have no connections to Graham Rice!). I just want to celebrate April and share a little joy with you;-)))

It isn't an April Fools joke...it's my gift to you!

Happy First day of April!

--Today I am thankful to be able to share.

  6. Graham Rice is such an authority on things.

    Have you read his book on Annuals, another gem. His blog is worth keeping an eye on too.

    On a different note, were you in Germany when the wall came down?

  7. Do I ever want my name thrown in the drawing! My hellebore garden could greatly benefit from such a book. I really want to try seeds but have heard it can be quite challenging. You're in my sidebar, front and center. Thanks!

  8. Rob, We left in December 1989, so we were just leaving when it was happening...
    We went to East Berlin prior to the wall coming down. It was like a scene from an old movie. We did manage to purchase some lovely hand crafted pieces of glass in the form of vases, plates and goblets;-)

  18. I'm interested. Anything to do with Hellebores gets my interest. I think I read that one from the library when it was first published in hardcover, but I can't remember. I am currently reading Burrell & Tyler's Hellebore book (also from the library).

  20. Jan,

    Just back from the local nursery, got 2 sick and discounted hellebores and 2 pricey beautiful hellebores. Now if we only knew where to plant them.

  21. Jan, I linked you in a article I just posted.

  24. Hi Jan. You sure are sweet. How kind to offer a give-away on a very popular perennial. I would love a chance at winning the book. I have zero hellebores in my garden but plan to remedy that as soon as I can find one to buy! Thanks so much. I will link you in my next post.

  25. HI Jan, Feel free to post my giveaway in your sidebar. It is certainly good for an extra entry. Thanks for stopping by.

    I don't have any Hellebores and hope to moving this spring but your giveaway book is beautiful.

  26. Hi Jan,
    Count me in, too. I need to get ready for bed soon, so if I get a post that links here, I'll let you know.

    Happy April! I hope we don't get the snow we are forecasted to get this weekend. I hope you are getting good spring weather.

  27. I don't grow hellebores. But this is a cool giveaway. Don't sign me up but I do want to know who wins.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes yes yes !! please enter me for a chance to win your very generous gift.
    I hope you are well and enjoying some good weather. Ours is improving daily.

  29. Guess I'd better get my name in for the drawing Jan (meant to do it a couple days ago). As much as I've complained for years about how (don't shoot me) ugly my hellebores was - this year it finally turned pretty and my picture I posted was so lovely I've eaten all my bad words and decided it has gotten prettier with age. Then I saw all of the pictures of everyone elses and . . . ok there are some really pretty ones that I didn't know existed and now I will probably have to have some more. But only if I can go shopping with Catherine and get in on some really great sales! ;-) Because those little buggers are spendy!!!

  30. Jan, what a lovely give - away. Please consider me in your draw.

    So sorry I have not been stopping by regularly and commenting. I do speed read everyone's blogs, I just am overwhelmed with "LIFE" at the moment, it seems to be all I can do to keep up. It is a rather good thing that the garden is too cold to work in. That would just be another thing on my 2do list. I kind of feel like I need to write a post apologizing for not being "there" for everyone right now.

    Looking forward to seeing who the lucky winner is!

    Jen

  31. Love those hellebores! I might need to order that book myself, as I'm not a lucky person. But I just called Heronswood and added another hellebore to my order (it might be too late, I'll find out when the order arrives with 2 or 3 expensive plants inside). When deciding between plants and books about plants, the plants usually get the funding :-)

  32. Hi Jan,
    I am so sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I haven't been on my blog much this past week after I got posted on Monday. I haven't felt too good and just read your comment. I would have put you in my sidebar had I found you sooner. I never mind doing that & I am so sorry to have missed it. Next time contact me & I will definitely help you out any time you like.
    Debbie
