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. nahnah.ANNIE has spoken at our garden club ..she is EVERYONE FAV speaker and the plants she brought..oh my! u need to move to cali,,really!!

  2. I love Annies Annuals.
    Bought some plants from them at the San Francisco Garden Show and they’re doing pretty well in my garden.
    I sure would like to win a gift certificate.

  3. I occasionally shop at CVS Pharmacy primarily to select my plants from Annie’s when a customer told me that a visit to her nursery is worth it just to see the grounds. My first visit lasted several hours for I had to walk up and down each isle, taking pictures of plants I’ve always wanted to grow but never found for sale. My dream is to start transitioning the landscape around the house surrounding ourselves with Annie’s choices. Annie’s is a wonderful discovery and she has another customer for life.

  4. That is so wonderful of you to do. In this economy everyone still buy flowers-why-because they make me smile. I rather be at a nursery then shopping at Macy’s! And one day I will make it to your nursery until then-ILOVE YOUR CATALOG.

    i ALSO had a chinse silkie chicken when I was younger and would like to know if you have any at your nursery-Heck that would make me drive over two bridges to see you.

    Have a great monday everyone!…

  5. yess! Me! I want it! Pick me! We just moved in to a new house with a completely neglected yard. Turns out we’ve got a couple snowball bushes and a weigella, but that’s about it. Lots and lots of room to fill! That $50 would go a long ways!

  6. hope I’m not late.. left my name in the wrong area.. silly me 🙂 I love love love Annies… I could live there, really I could.. there are chickens for eggs, restroom, water to wash up with, a dog for friendship and warmth on those cooler mornings, kitties for shadows, and mostly, the beauty out of the bedroom (hot houses) windows first thing in the morning… Ahhhh heaven

  8. I can spend hours at Annie’s Annuals, besides my own yard, it is my second fave place in the world!
