Peat Pot Upcycle and Giveaway

I'm so weary of winter!!! We had a little more snow today and it is back down in the 30's, spring can not come fast enough. I've been looking through new garden magazines the last few weeks and making plans for my planting. I have piles of garden magazine and save them for a few years much to my husband's dismay. 

Since I can't plant yet I've been gathering supplies and thought I'd share some with you in a Garden Giveaway. I took a peat pot and gave it a new look, it is amazing what a little paint can do and a graphic from the Graphics Fairy.



One of my favorite magazines this season has been a Garden Gate issue on backyard retreats. I've included the magazine, peat pot, garden gloves, seed packets of alyssum, herb stakes for oregano, basil and rosemary.





The Garden Giveaway is simple become a Cottage and Broome follower (let us know you are now following) and leave a comment. If you are already a follower let us know and leave a comment. If you mention the giveaway on your blog come back and leave us another comment for an additional chance to win. Closing date for the Giveaway is Friday, March 22nd, midnight.

I hope you are a winner and this will give you a little jump start on your spring plans and planting!

I too love working in my yard. Been doing it most all day. It is sunny and warm. Everything is coming out. I definitely got the fever to work outside. This would make a perfect gift as it is something I would definitely use. The winner should be very pleased. I am a new follower, 83 years old and still mow my yard.

I have been seeing peat pot decorations lately and I didn't know what a peat pot was. You did a great job "fancifying" (is that a word?) the pot.

I am already a follower and can't wait to spend my spring break in the garden so I would love to win your giveaway.

I love that peat pot, Laura! I have a few small sized ones that I like to paint up and decorate. I was thinking of trying some of the stamps I have on them next time.
