    What a wonderful giveaway! I have wanted to get my hands on this book the past few months, ever since stumbling across your Instagram and site; I would love to have my own carnivorous garden soon but want to learn as much as I possibly can about their care beforehand. I’ve heard so many good things about The Savage Garden.
