This is my first ever Giveaway so please advise if I do something incorrect. I just placed an order at ... a-seed-mix

I bought #53, #57 and #62. I will be lucky to use even half of these so I am going to do one giveaway per seed pack which will have roughly 75-100 seeds.

With Halloween creeping up on us, let's use that as a theme and all users can vote. Winners will be those with the most votes as of Oct.15th, 2023.

I want to see pics. In case you do not notice, I am in to COLOR. Lots and lots of color. Post your most colorful Halloween themed plants, plants and animals or ??? Sorry, no babies. I have enough of those ones. :D :D :D

I will pay to ship seeds to the top 3 winners.

EDIT: Open to all U.S. Forum members

Good luck and post them pics.

I'll start it off...I took this picture of a red eyed tree frog in the jungles of Arenal Costa Rica 🐸 He was quite a colorful sight and rare to see as they spend most of their time in the upper tree canopy...only coming down to breed once a year!

The only thing I would suggest is to specify if it's open to everyone, or US addresses only.

Don't give up. Giveaways and photo contests can be tough. You can do a simple sign up giveaway and I'm sure you would have more participation. Look in the giveaway forum and you can see some previous giveaway ideaa.

nooo it's a good prize and a good prompt, but the wrong time of year. i was walking around the yard looking for something to photograph, but my pumpkins, corn, and eastern redbuds are all still green :\

I’d have to agree. Good idea and good prize. But, while retail stores have had stuff up for a month or more already :roll:, homes in my area are just starting to decorate, and trees are in the early stages of color change. For a Halloween giveaway, you’d probably be better off having said giveaway end near the end of October….perhaps even on Halloween.

I don’t know how other people feel about rats but this is my submission! My little pet rat Bramble as a vampire with “bloody entrails” (aka blueberry)
