Sarah Raven Journal Giveaway

So, you want to own the lovely Sarah Raven's 'Cutting Garden Journal'? Of course you do, you're only human and lo, I WANT TO GIFT A COPY TO YOU!


So sorry, this is only open to UK residents but I'm thinking selfishly about the cost of posting a lovely hardback book and I think the speed at which the lucky winner gets it it paramount - there will be planning and dreaming to do 😄

I wrote a little book review of this tome when I received it from Frances Lincoln pre-release way back in 2014. By the evil quirks of the internet the photos I included in that review have disappeared into the ether but trust me, it's gorgeous. I shall find them again on my external hard drive. I do have the text of my review and here it is in edited snippets....

"I may have fallen in lust with this fabulous Sarah Raven's 'Cutting Garden Journal'. Sarah is a goddess of all things cut flower and I just love that she has written a easy, go to book helping people like me to be more confident in her area of expertise."

"Not too much reading, gorgeous photography, plans, projects and inspiration for next year's flower patch."

"It is an absolute joy to the senses; the touch of the paper, the layout, the photography. It is sort of a cross between a coffee table book and a how to manual, so stylish but full of great know how and precise instructions."

"A guide to getting your beds right and full of exactly the right plants. Raven even tells you the best variety of the best plants to grow; how to grow them, where they'll grow best and how long the stems should be cut for the best look!"

Now it's over to you. Just leave your name in the comments section if you want to be entered. All names will be placed in a pot and one shall be plucked out (with my eyes closed tight!) to be the happy recipient. Then I would just ask that the winner contact me with an address.

Go, dear reader and good luck. The winner shall be announced on New Year's Day.

Hugs
Carrie

  1. Sounds good - If as exceedingly unlikely as it is that my name pops out my email address is on my blog. I wrote a very uninspiring review of what I considered to ne an uninspiring book some time back and haven't been asked to review since. I guess that they were not after honest!

    1. I am sorry things didn't work out for you. I am always honest in my reviews but still get asked back, thankfully.
      Best of luck on winning this book though!

  2. That's good of you, but please don't enter me in the draw.
    Can I suggest that it would better if people didn't leave their contact details when they comment but for just the winner to contact you. Flighty xx

  5. Chelsea! Hello lovely! How lovely to have you here. The blog's been going from 2008 when we got our allotment but after so long I needed to change it up a bit. I'm hoping to do more here and share my hiking adventures and book/product reviews whilst also staying honest about my mental health illnesses. I'm so happy you're here - your name is going in the pot!!
