And the Troy-Bilt Jet Leaf Blower Winner is…

First before I tell you who won the Jet Blower from Troy-Bilt I wanted to say thank you for entering! Giving stuff away is really one of the more exciting parts of blogging! The Jet is an easy to use leaf blower made by Troy-Bilt. The Jet easily blasts away grass clippings on driveways and leaves making cleaning up after yardwork a piece of cake. If you didn't win this JET but find yourself in need of a leaf blower you should be able to find it at your local home improvement centers for around $150. The winner of the Jet was selected through a random number drawing between 1 and 20. (The total number of commenters on the review post.) The lucky winner was the eighth commenter, Emily Rose! Emily please send me an email (TheHomeGarden@gmail.com) with the your shipping address and phone number and I'll relay that information to Troy-Bilt.…

And the Winner is…

Thank you to all the commenters who left entries into the Troy-Bilt CS4235 Wood Chipper giveaway.  It is a great tool for the garden and I know whoever is the winner will enjoy making mountains of mulch! We had 39 commenters* who left some great descriptions of their gardens.  What I found interesting to read were the very different situations each gardener had. Bamboo groves in need of severe pruning, gardeners stuck on islands, managing wilderness areas, removing invasive plants, and many other situations. I'm sure that everyone who posted a comment could make great use of this woodchipper. Unfortunately I can only give away one. To select the winner I used a random number generator and counted to the corresponding commenter in the order in which the comments were made. The winner must be in the continental United States for shipping reasons. If for any reason the winner cannot…

And the Results are In! (Troy-Bilt 4 Cycle Trimmer Giveaway)

First let me thank everyone who entered the giveaway for the Troy-Bilt 4 Cycle string trimmer.  I really wish I could be like Oprah. Everyone in the audience would look under their chairs and find a new Troy-Bilt 4 Cycle string trimmer, but her bank account has a much higher capacity than mine!  Thankfully though my association with Troy-Bilt allows me to give away one lawn product to someone in GrowingTheHomeGarden.com's audience. Before I announce the lucky winner let me mention that two of my fellow Saturday6 bloggers are also giving away cool Troy-Bilt riding mowers.  Stop over and visit Amy at Get Busy Gardening and Steve at The Rainforest Garden to enter.

Reusing an Old Wheelbarrow and a $50 Gift Card Giveaway to Lowe’s!

A couple weeks ago I saw a picture posted on Facebook with a display of sedums all planted in an old wheelbarrow.  It was a pretty creative idea to re-use a wheelbarrow that may have just been discarded and turn it into something of interest.  This gave me an idea for my latest project for Lowe's Creative Ideas.  The theme is mums!  As I'm sure you're aware chrysanthemums are one of the most popular plant purchases this time of year.  The look great and offer a bushy burst of color which blends well with the Autumn season.  Today I'll show you a few of the items I'm using for the project.  The mum planting has all been completed but I'm waiting for a couple of the mums to break from their buds. Before I show you what I'm using for this project here are a couple tips for buying mums: When buying…

Win DuPont Biodegradable Weed Fabric and $100 Lowe’s Gift Card!

A couple weeks ago a representative for DuPont contacted me and asked me to review one of their products. It was a weed control fabric (DuPont Garden O.N.E® Biodegradable Weed Control Fabric). I was skeptical about it at first (since weed control fabrics and myself don't usually get along) but I said go ahead and send it and I'd take a look.When I looked at the weed fabric packaging I was pleased to find a 100% biodegradable weed control fabric for vegetable gardens and annual plantings! That's what it says on the packaging. If you read further down the roll you'll find that the weed fabric is made from wood fiber, is suggested for use in organic gardens, and can be tilled into the soil at the end of the year! Sounds like newspaper put into a convenient roll for you. I haven't tested my weed control fabric yet but…
