Tell your friends that today, Tuesday, March 23, is the last day to enter to win a gardener’s prize package worth more than $250.

All they have to do to enter is subscribe to Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com. And it’s free to subscribe!

Welcome new subscribers! Shout out to my loyal readers from past years! If you have already subscribed, you are already in the prize drawing!

But if you haven’t subscribed, do it today. You will automatically be entered into our prize drawing.

I will choose the winners tomorrow morning (Wednesday, March 24).

I will get a numbered list of all the subscribers to Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com. I’ll use Random.org to generate a list of random numbers. The names that correspond with the first three numbers on the random list will be the winners.

I’ll email the three lucky winners to notify them that they have won. Each winner must respond to the email by 5 p.m. Sunday, March 28 to let me know that they have received the notification and are prepared to pick up their prizes. If they don’t respond, we will choose another winner.
