Garden Giveaway #10: $50 Gift Certificate to Annie’s Annuals

Everyone is pumped up for this one I’m sure.  All you West Coast-ers.  All of you guys that actually got to go to the Spring Party @ Annie’s Annuals & Perennials this past weekend.  We hate you by the way.  We hate that you have such easy access to Annie’s and we have to go to these obscure boring garden centers that are basically Lowe’s minus the hardware.  This is jealousy talking – pure, sweet, unedited – jealousy.

Annie's Annuals AWESOMENESS

More Annie's Annuals Awesome-ness

We have always kind of stalked Annie’s Annuals online – that might sound weird but it is true.  Such vibrant colors, everyone talks about it – how could you not get mesmerized by what they have to offer (seriously, look at their slideshows if you don’t think so).  It is in California, which doesn’t make it somewhere we can just drop by on a weekend.  Can you guys start a “branch” in Texas?!?!  Maybe call it Double Danger’s Delights or something?  We will run it.  And trust us… when it is time to pay us, I’m sure we would be in debt via plant purchases – so it would work out.  I’m sure.  Seriously… call us, we will talk.  Text us.  Email.  Big-fat-old-timey-cell-phone us.  Whatever it takes.  We are waiting.

Sorry you had to see that.  It was embarrassing.  Please forgive.  Maybe a $50 gift certificate to the coolest nursery on the West Coast (anyone want to argue?).  I totally used two forms of ending punctuation there – and I’m leaving it.  Deal w/ it. 

Usually money (or in this case gift certificates) seems to help anyone to get going – no matter what hobby/interest it is applied to.  In this case, it is plants… loads and loads of plants to choose from that could get anyone pumped up about gardening.  That is why we are so excited about this one.  Of course all you long time gardeners (especially from the West Coast) have known and loved Annie’s Annuals for a while now… but a new gardener might not know their ass from their elbow when it comes to where to buy plants.  With 50 bucks from Annie’s Annuals, even if they are not from the West Coast – they could pick some neat stuff and have it shipped… for zero dollars out of their own pocket.  How’s that for motivating a n00b?

I beg you to win this and give it to us though.  That would be the sweetest thing you could do.  We need motivation (**sly grin**).  In fact, I’m dreaming up aliases for Shala to use in order to win this one… so if you see Shannon O’Shay or Billy Madison on the list of comments… call us out.  Because… cheaters never win.  🙂  Seriously though – this is one that we wish we could be eligible for, but we will leave it for you guys to use & abuse at your leisure.  Just think of us when you get your awesome plants and we are sitting here w/ cactus and grass.  BoooOooOo.

Ok – you should know the drill by now – leave a comment below (ON THIS POST) and you are entered to win.  We will let this one run for today – and pull a winner in the morning.  That simple.  We keep it simple around here – because it is easier.  Thanks for entering all the contests so far – it has been so much fun surprising folks w/ their winnings.  It has been a blast to be able to do this for the new folks and the old folks… wait… sorry… didn’t meant to call you old folks… umm… for the already enthused gardeners.  There we go.  Help spread the word if you would.  Everyone has done such an awesome job backing us on Twitter & Facebook – let’s see how it changes today.  Everyone will be keeping quiet, so as not to lower their chances of winning.  haha  I know you guys all too well.  Thanks to Annie’s Annuals for the garden giveaway love, and support on Twitter & Facebook.  We are so glad we finally quit stalking and started talking.  Good luck & good gardening!

UPDATE: WOW!  Since we have had such a great response to this giveaway, Annie’s Annuals has decided to create a coupon code for everyone here at Double Danger!  ***clap clap***  So win or lose (we are all winner now eh?) you can use the coupon code: DANGER10 until the end of April to gain 10% off your order!  How cool is that!  Thanks Annie’s Annuals!  Now go run and take advantage of it… oh wait, you are probably going to try and win first huh… cheaters.  😉

  1. My beds are begging for more color. A little red, a little yellow, a little orange….a trip to Annie’s will soothe my soul.

  2. Pick me! I am a true flower junkie!!! I met Pixie the other day- he was very helpful! I love Annies and I love flowers!!!!

  3. I love everything I’ve ever gotten from Annie’s — their plants are awesome! One of these days I would love to get down there to see their place!!! In the meantime, I will take a gift certificate and plant some of that Joy in my own yard! Thanks!

  4. I was at the Spring Party! Even though it was windy and raining I didn’t care. Spent several hours there and then raced home to plant my new bounty. But now I have a horrible cold, staying home from work today. Guess that makes me a “weekend warrior” gardener. An Annie’s gift certificate will help me recover quicker!!!!

  5. I am on my death bed and the doctors are saying the only sure cure is planting live plants from 4-inch pots.

  6. Putting my name in the drawing for the gift certificate to Annie’s Annuals. Thinking positive . . .

  7. I have a unique ability to see 24 hours in the future and I am so psyched that I won and already filled my cart and placed the order. I’ll just wait for the formal congrats tomorrow … sorry my friends.

  8. I have wanted Angelica Gigas for a long time, can’t find it around here. If I win, that is first on my list.

  9. Hoping I can be considered for the lovely prize. Not really good at spoiling myself, but at Annie’s I make an exception! 🙂

  10. It was my first time there, but I drove 169 miles in the rain… spent o’lot of my weekly grocery money (I’m unemployed because Smith & Hawken closed down on me in November)…**sound of violins playing sadly**
    but it was SOOOOOOO worth it to bring home some treasures to plant on my bone-dry-in-the-summer foothills proper… I’d love to pick up more treasures thanks

  11. (; Rain and Shine – It was mighty fine! It could only have been better with wine – but I bought some deep wine hued blossoms to put in bed – instead 😉

  12. OMG….$50 at Annie’s Annuals…could actually make a (small) dent in my Annie’s wish-list!!! (btw these people are awesome….even if you don’t win if you’ve never ordered from them well then you should!

  13. I will be at Annie’s for Mothers Day again this year. I’m hoping either my mother-in-law or I get it (Hi Nina!) What a lovely “icing on the cake” this would be. The only problem whould be staying off their website and using it before May!

  14. There is nothing more rewarding then planting some of Annies rare plants and having them thrive. Makes me feel like God creating these beautiful spaces.

  15. My favorite nursery carries Annie’s Annuals but its just not the same as drooling all over Annie’s acreage in person. I wanna go back!!!

  16. Wow, a gift certificate at my favorite nursery, even though it’s half a state away from my home. A visit to Annie’s is like a trip to Mecca for a gardening fanatic. Drove eight hours to visit and well worth it. Amazing place. BTW, their mail order department is the best of all the nurseries from which I have ordered these past decades. No one does it better. Gotta love Annie’s!

  17. 50 Bucks! Wow at least that would put a dent in one trip to Anna’s. So many plants, so little yard!

  18. Francine Patterson

    Oh how I love Annie’s! I have only been there in the fall. Would love to go to the spring fling. And..I would go if I was to win this! 🙂

  19. Ooh, my sister almost disowned me for not telling her about the garden party costume contest. I hope I win, so she’ll stop reminding me!
