Win The Most Amazing Ladder Ever!

When Susanne Osmond, one of our favourite garden designers and landscapers, told me she was importing "amazing" tripod ladders from Japan I thought to myself "How different can a ladder be? My step ladders work just fine." Now that I have been to the top of one of her Hasegawa 8 foot platform tripods I realize there is no comparison between the rickety ladders I've been climbing up and down all my life and this magnificent, shining creation from Japan. We have it on display right now at the nursery so you can come and see it.

AND! You can enter a contest right now to win it!

Phoenix Perennials owner Gary Lewis and our friend Susanne Osmond, the importer of these amazing Hasegawa ladders.

Hasegawa Platform Ladders

Description: Specialty pruning ladder, made by Hasegawa from Japan, well known throughout Japan for the safety, stability and practicality of the tripod design. Ask any gardener or nurseryman in Japan which ladders they use and they all say the same thing: Hasegawa.

And the weblink for all the info about the platform model.

Value: $376

To Enter the Contest:
1. Visit Susanne's Main Ladders Page: http://susanneosmond.com/garden/ladders/
2. Find the answer to the two part skill-testing question: In what famous garden did Susanne first discover the Hasegawa ladder and how many people were fighting over it every day?
3. Email us at phoenixperennials at shaw.ca (Yes you have to put the @ sign in there.) with your Name, City, Phone Number, and your answer to the skill testing question. Put "Ladder Contest" in the subject line.

Good Luck! One entry per person but feel free to tell all your friends. If one of them wins you can borrow the ladder from them!
