Snap & Grow 6′ x 8′ Greenhouse Contest Winners
"This is me in March looking out the window at the snow..thinking about gardening. Winning a greenhouse for sure is going to get things off to an early start and lessen any worries of our short growing season. Can't wait to set it up and I just may need more seeds!" Jill Taylor, Port Sydney, Ontario.
I love growing plants of every description... vegetables, flowers, herbs, trees and I come from a family of passionate gardeners. All my vegetables are grown from seed so this greenhouse is a wonderful gift for me! Thank you!" Carol Dromey, St. Catharines, Ontario
"How exciting! Thank you! I've attached a picture of my husband Kevin and myself. We are currently working on growing winter greens year round, based on Elliot Coleman's winter greenhouse gardening. We love Veseys Seeds and we are so excited to have won this greenhouse - it will be well loved and utilized! Many thanks, Amanda Andres"
Our January 2013 winner is Lori Chesley from Qualicum Beach, BC. "WOW so very exciting. Thank you so much. Thanks again, we have greatly enjoyed growing your seeds."
Our December 2012 winner is Sharon Carruthers from Lashburn, SK. "My love of gardening comes from both my mother and great grandmother. As a kid I didn’t think picking peas and beans was such a wonderful way to spend summer days, but I sure appreciated the taste of all the fresh vegetables and of course the pickles and preserves that graced our table throughout those years. I have continued the gardening tradition and since retiring I have spent many wonderful summer days puttering about my perennial garden, planting new trees, shrubs and flowers. Seems to me there’s nothing quite so relaxing and of course it’s a great way to exercise!" Sincerely, Sharon Carruthers
Our October 2012 winner is Calvin Hubbard from Halcomb, New Brunswick.
Our May winner is Margaret MacKenzie from Lake Echo, NS. "I have always loved to have pretty things in my yard so I have planted several bushes and trees, such as hydrangea, spirea, autumn sedum, tea rose, lilacs, hostas, smoke bush, cedars. I have tried my hand at vegetables in the past but had a serious issue with blight so I haven't done that in a few years but would love to get back into growing my own tomatoes, carrots, beets, green onions so maybe with this greenhouse, I will be able to do just that. Thank you so much."
Our April winner is Alice Veltman of Carrying Place, Ontario. "I used to have a greenhouse business of my own which I operated with the help of my sister. I just have a little vegetable garden now, and some flower beds, but I would love to start my plants from seed again in my own greenhouse. I also help a few friends and relatives with their gardens so I’ll have no trouble “getting rid of” as many plants as I can grow! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
Our March winner is Scott and Supannee Adams from Westville, NS. "We are ecstatic to have been chosen as the winner for the Snap & Grow Greenhouse. We just started gardening 3 years ago and this greenhouse will be a perfect addition to our gardening adventures. My wife loves to grow flowers and I enjoy working in the vegetable garden. Thank you Veseys, We can't wait to start using our new Snap & Grow Greenhouse."
Our first winner of the 6'x8' Greenhouse is Diane Betts from Halifax, NS. "I love to garden. Four years ago my husband and I started to grow potatoes. We had such success that we expanded it and now grow yellow and green beans, tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, carrots, and and onions. We have also tried pumpkin and corn. Who knows what we will be able to grow now with a new "snap & grow greenhouse"!! I can't wait for the spring. Thank you again."
