If you’ve been reading Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com, you already know about the gardening tips, full-color photos, videos and up-to-date list of gardening events.

But there are actually gardeners in Western New York who haven’t heard of Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com!

And they don’t know about our wonderful prize drawing with a prize package worth more than $250!

Can you help me spread the word?

After all, there will be three winners in our drawing. It could be you and two of your friends! Or if a friend of yours wins, maybe they will share some of the prizes with you!

Please email this information to a friend. Or share it on Facebook InstagramNextdoor or your favorite social media. Or pick up the phone and call a relative. Or mention it to your group on Zoom. Or tell your neighbor while keeping social distance.
