Garden Safe Products

If you like using safe, non-synthetic insect killers in your garden then you are going to love this giveaway!  I was really excited when Garden Safe sent me a huge box full of their products to try out.  They were so generous, they pretty much sent me a lifetime supply for my little garden!  I ended up sharing it with some of my friends.  We were all very happy with the results and knowing that it's good for the planet is always a big plus.  These products can even be used if you have an organic garden! 


Here's what my problem was...white aphids! At least that's what I think they are! I'm happy to say, they seem to be gone now thanks to my Garden Safe products! 

So, I bet you want to know what this giveaway includes.......



The giveaway includes gardening tools and Garden Safe Brand products that any home gardener would love, including the following:

  • Garden tote bag with tools, including a weeding fork, sprayer, hand rake, trowel, transplanter, and clipper
  • Garden Safe Brand products (pictured in 1st photo):
· Fruit & Vegetable Insect Killer
· Rose & Flower Insect Killer
· Houseplant & Garden Insect Killer
· Multi-Purpose Garden Insect Killer

  • $20 gift card to Lowe’s
The perfect giveaway for any gardener out there!

To be entered, just leave a comment and let me know if you have bugs in your garden!  If you don't have a blog, please be sure to leave your email address so I have a way to contact you!  This contest is open to U.S. residents and will close at midnight on July 10th.  The winner will be selected by a random draw.

I have a few bugs so far but I am just getting started with my garden.

Cat said...

What a wonderful giveaway!! Yes something is eating my tomato plants in the garden. We ended up buying and were gifted a few more plants that we put into big planters and have them on our deck instead of near the garden. We also found out our nut tree's nuts, which is dropping nuts too early, has a worm that is causing them to fall off.

Claudia said...

We have bugs and weeds and I'd love to find environmentally-friendly ways to rid our yard of both -- now, if I could just get our 100-pound black lab to stop killing the bushes by peeing on them, I'd be set! :)

Stacey said...

Me, me, me, I'm a gardener. :) Please include me in the drawing. This is awesome! The problem I've experienced is slugs that chew up the soft leaves of my hostas. Crazy little critters!

Patti said...

Yes, I have bugs and the never ending weeds. Slugs on the hostas and something was eating the azaleas (sp?), but they are gone now. Been trying vinegar on the weeds, but got to say not working with success. I am going to google another green way of getting ahead of the weeds. Someone told me to try ouring boiling water over them. To me, that seems like a lot of extra work. Thanks for the give a way.

Karen said...

Jackie said...

oh, wow! a great give away...I have lots of problems with aphids every summer. I dont know if it is because of the extreme heat when the plants are in stress or because we live in the middle of an agricultural area.

Wonderful! I'm trying so hard to keep beetles, etc. out of our little garden. The plants are precious to me. They came from my mother-in-law's garden (she recently died. I soooo want them to make it and thrive.

DreamgirlLisa said...

I do have some bugs, as I don't use any pesiticides that are not safe or organic. The worse time for me is when I first plant my veggie seedlings and they "roly poly"s and slugs eat my sprouts! I LOVE to garden and would love these products!! Thanks for your generosity Cindy!

mcnairy said...

I have been bothered by something eating all my leaves...they turn my plants to literal skeltons...HELP!!!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

The products sound great. Who doesn't have bugs in their garden? Snails are our biggest problem.

Debra said...

We apparently are a bug friendly garden, I sure would like a new way to try to let them find some other place to live:).

2CF Farms said...

Wonder giveaway! Yes I have slugs that give me a hard time. I also have many, many weeds that keep me busy.

Love your blog. I lived in the bay area for a while and I am a single mom also. I have a few bugs in my garden and this prize would really help me out. Take care and have a wonderful week.

Hugs,

Lisa said...

I just love your blog Cindy. I am always checking it to see if you added something new. I would love to win this to surprise my husband (the gardener). We have 24 antique cast iron garden urns in our yard filled with flowers. Hubby just had to completely redo the rose garden area due to weeds. We have to start over every year because we live in the midwest and never know what we are going to lose year to year. Plus, my husband loves annuals. We could do wonders with this giveaway!

I do have some bugs in the gardens. We have Japanese Beetles. Ick! They love any of my trees which are red. Like the cherry tree and the weeping cherry tree and my Japanese maples. They are SO annoying!

Lots of different bugs in my garden...also have lots of ants making ant hills! I love looking at your home and garden. Thanks for sharing!

DesigningLadyJane said...

Hi, I just a few days ago had to yank out some lovely petunias from a planter, some bugs had moved in and gobbled away half the blooms before I knew what was happening. I would love to be put down for your giveaway.

Lady Dorothy said...

What a cute tote! And yes, there are always bugs!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

The amphids have been really busy in my garden this year. We also had some kind of nasty looking fungus in our mulch. Great giveaway.
xo, Sherry

I seem to be battling whiteflies in my garden right now. I have their insecticidal soap but ran out before I could treat all of my squash bushes. I'd love to win this so I can finish up the treatment. At least my tomatoes are doing well this year :)

win said...

I surely need a safe way to get rid of whatever is eating away at my tomato plants...we were gone 3 days and when we returned my largest plant was without 2/3's of its leaves and blossoms. I'm sad! This plant was even in a topsy-turvy planter.

skoots1mom said...

I currently am blessed to not have any bad bugs causing any problems on my plants...I am struggling having to water things. our heat has been brutal...it should be in the 80's next week, so there's a little help in sight.
put me in for the giveaway...thanks!
fun...and her foxgloves are gorgeous.

pogonip@Meadowsweet Cottage said...

I'm gradually getting ahead of the aphids on my roses, but those darn pillbugs that keep eating my seedlings are winning that battle (mostly because I haven't found something Green to use on them).

Cottonwood Tales said...

Oh yeah - bugs are everywhere in Texas!! Great giveaway. Thanks in advance for a chance to win.

Love reading your blog!

Amara Russell said...

Those flowers are beautiful...exactly the color I've been searching for today. I want to say a very deeply heart-felt "Thank You" for the beautiful inspiration your work/blog/love has been for me. I've been a lurker for a few weeks now, reading the archives & keeping up with your day-to-day also. I've decided to do some decorating thanks to you, and today I went thrifting. I found my perfect teapot shelf! and two very expensive looking/feeling lampshades...as well as a couple other beautiful bits. I'm going to try painting that ugly little gem of a vintage shelf because you have given me the confidence to just go for it. If I ruin it I'm out $13...but no hard feelings if worse comes to worst! I am however optimistic & will keep you in mind as I progress...for moral support ;-)
Thank you for sharing your talent & success with the world; you -and the beautiful home you've created - are very inspiring.
Don't have a Blog, so please enter me in your give away as Amaragrace@hotmail.com.
Many Blessings
Amara

Sheila @ Dodging Raindrops said...

Bugs? More like SLUGS!!! They love to munch on my hydrangeas, my hollyhock, my dahlias, etc, etc, etc!! :)

Something else is also eating my hydrangea but I don't know what it is.

Joanne Kennedy said...

Yes I do have bugs and they are really bugging me! I have some little white ones that have formed by the millions on one of my roses and some snails that won't go away no matter how nicely I ask them to. Plus there is something that has been eating one of my hydrangeas in the back yard. So, I could really really use this and would be ever so thrilled to win.

Hugs,
Joanne

Regina said...

I have bugs in my garden also. Please include me in your drawing.

Michele said...

What a cool treat that was to receive those products, Cindy!! Yes, I've had bugs so bad that the plants I had in my home left sticky stuff all over the leaves that then dripped onto my carpet. That was last year, and the plants are gone, but the sticky stuff is still there. :-( So gross!!

I had some other bugs kill three other plants on my patio, too, but I don't know what kind they are.

Great giveaway!

Thanks so much!!

Nina Patricia @ The Adventures of Nina Patricia said...

Oh this is awesome. I'm trying to also use greener products in my home.

I have something eating the leaves off my peppers. Catapillars on my dill. And just about every year the hornworms find my tomatoes!

Cindy, Love your blog/website. I visit it every day. Please enter me in the drawing for the gardening stuff, I am having a problem with bugs on my roses. I don't have a blog yet but my e-mail address is outback6000@windstream.net. I tried the recipe for the blueberry/peach cobbler because blueberries and peaches have been really cheap lately. Absolutely scrumptious!.

Marilyn said...

Cindy,

Do I have bugs? I live in TX, 'nuff said! LOL

Your give away sounds fantastic. As a gardener, I'm always anxious to try different products.

I have the same white flies....and nasty bud worms in my geraniums... soap and water help, but I would love to try these products....thanks for the opportunity..........love your blog!

slotmachinemimi said...

I am always so envious of your beautiful flowers! I have a hard time, getting my flowers to bloom, I don't think that it is really anything that I am doing, I just think it is the HOT-HOT-HOT weather that we have here in Texas!! I live along the gulf coast, usually we have plenty of rain, but have not had our usual amount of rainfall for the last 2 years---not good for the plants.

sactovlr said...

Thanks for offering the giveaway! Bugs - heck yes...and would love a 'green' way of getting rid of them!

Linda Q said...

Great giveaway, thank you.
Enter me, sometimes we have bugs, this year the garden getting a little neglected to even see if we have bugs. But next year we have a big garden redo planned so better to cut them off at knees now.
Love that these are evironmentally friendly, that is always good!
Linda

Slugs...and they gross me out! I just put in a herb garden and those nasty little slugs better stay out!

curlyQdesign said...

My husband is pretty bug obessed and uses a "garden dust" to keep the bugs at bay. I would love to start using more organic products though. Not sure if anyone has advice on getting rid of Locust Killer Wasps, though? We have two that come back every summer and they just FREAK me out! {**Sighing realizing we should have thought better about buying a home on "Locust Aveune"**}

MJ said...

I do have bugs ... especially on my roses!!! I need help!!!! :-)

Irma's Rose Cottage said...

Yes, I have some ugly stink bugs on my tomatoes plants and grasshoppers are eating up my cannas plants.

I have spider mites all of a sudden! That's the worst of it ....but of course there's the perpetual red ants and wasps. And spiders ....we do NOT like spiders! Thanks for the entry.
