I don't usually post giveaways on my blog, but I will make an exception for what I consider to be both a fantastic book (50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants) and a fantastic author (Ruth Rogers Clausen). I met Ruth at this year's OFA conference. She is simultaneously knowledgeable and down to earth, both a smarty pants and a comedienne. I think you'll really enjoy her work.
To be fair, I should tell you I am biased. I've been assigned PR responsiblities for her book via Timber Press (one of my White Willow Media clients). Fortunately for me, I really love this book, so promoting it is super easy. But don't just take my word for it, check out what Genevieve Schmidt of North Coast Gardening says about it:
“This book is a one-stop, simple resource for east coast homeowners who need hardy, easy-to-grow, deer-resistant plants that won't let them down. I love that the author has selected a wide variety of plants which all go together fairly well.”
If you have a deer nibbling problem, head over to Timber Press and enter the contest. And even if you don't win, consider adding this book to your resource library. It's worth it!
Here's additional info about the contest from the Timber Press website:
We’re offering a giveaway this week with a chance to win some very exciting prizes: a copy of 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants by Ruth Rogers Clausen and a pair of gloves from Womanswork! We received such a positive response from our last giveaway featuring the book that we wanted to give our readers another chance to win.
50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants makes keeping deer away as simple as choosing the appropriate plant. Instead of the typical barriers and fencing, expert plantswoman Ruth Rogers Clausen has chosen the 50 most beautiful (and least palatable) annuals, bulbs, ferns, grasses, herbs, perennials, and shrubs.
Best of luck!
