The 12 lucky WINNERS are:

Barbara: I’m throwing my dahlias in the ring to win! Thanks Erin for all the kindness you show.

Leslie Anderson: I most look forward to the burst of color and pattern that is spring!

Shelly: I just can not WAIT to see what I as a wedding florist get to work with this wedding season. New combinations, new varieties etc.-it’s what keeps me loving what I do!

Libby: Every day on the way to work i would pass a farm, and late in the summer they would have a giant field filled with dahlia. It was my favorite time of the year when I could go out there in my heels and work clothes and pick arms full of these beautiful flowers. Now that I own a house, I am able to actually have a garden, and I want to fill it with Dahlias of my own to pick!!

Jennifer Haf: Totally psyched to rock my #farmerflorist self this season! Would LOVE to include some floret tubers in the mix!!! xoxo

Leslie Emanuels: I am looking forward to my 7 year old, Jack, picking cucumbers for all his friends. Last year he convinced qutie a few non vegatable eaters that cucumbers are the best thing ever. I will think they are playing outside only to find them in the kitchen making some cute goofy dish.
My other son, who is 9, loves dahlias. He wanted 2 parts of our fenced in garden for them. I wish I could send you his garden plan. So fun to watch their excitement when something they have planted blooms.

Hedgerow Rose: Goodness I know it’s a long shot but I’d love to throw my hat in the ring since we’re trying our hand at growing more Dahlias this summer.
What am I looking forward to the most? ROSES! Always roses

Grace G: I am looking forward into the future when bloomed flowers are grown at its best so I could buy them for no reason and decorate my room with all types of beautiful and amazingly fragranced flowers.

Lily Stockman: Erin, this is BEYOND generous! Crossing my fingers for good luck- I’m looking forward to sending these to my mom to plant in her incredible Revolution-era farmhouse garden in NJ. The pompom dahlias are KIlLING me!!! Xoxo L

Kristen M: Finally have a tiny tiny raised bed outside of my apartment in the city! Very much looking forward to growing a few zinnias, sunflowers, and hopefully – a dahlia or two?! Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity!

Doug: Looking forward to my first season without a day job on the side! And more dahlias!

Emily: Can’t wait to plant flowers in my dad’s garden. He grew up in Brooklyn but always dreamed of moving to the country and he finally has the space. Every year I help him choose and plant his veggies and last year we added flowers for he first time. Thanks for the opportunity!

**Thank you to everyone who entered. This was just so much fun!
