    This thread will be for people who want to do seed exchanges only. I have given many free seeds away, but now would like to expand my collection and do trades only. Thank you for understanding.

    : )

    You can make a 'have' list that you are offering, and a 'want' list that you would like to obtain. You can also edit your lists throughout the season, according to what you have available at different times.

    The following are my lists...


    I HAVE


    - organic, unroasted, viable coffee beans (Peruvian & El Salvadorian varieties)
    - 'dwarf french petit' marigolds
    - 'goldi locks' rudbeckia
    - jerusalem cherry
    - red geranium and other assorted colors
    - 'crimson rambler' morning glory (red with white throats)
    - canary melon (small and extra sweet)
    - honey dew melon
    - over 10 different heirloom tomato varieties
    - many ornamental and edible hot peppers
    - 'string of beads' cuttings
    - Japanese florabunda wisteria seeds
    - 'dwarf queen' aster
    - 'blue prince/princess' and 'blue boy/girl' hollyberry cuttings
    - light pink maverick geranium seeds
    - hollyhock (black and mixed colors)
    - poppy (red and pink varieties)
    - drummondi phlox (mixed colors but rare blue is in the mix too!)
    - F1 hybrid Impatiens (mixed colors)
    - red, yellow, and orange sweet bell peppers (not mixed - separate)
    - 'Temptation' everbearing strawberry (great for hanging baskets)
    - 'fruit basket' sweet orange pepper (perfect hanging basket pepper plant)
    - Goji berry (Lycium barbarum)
    - ornamental cabbage
    - 'Venus' novelty pink fully double, feathery poppy
    - bright pink Cyclamen
    - 'magic carpet mix' snapdragon
    - true blue cornflower


    I WANT

    - dwarf banana seeds or pups - especially types with red leaves
    - pink or raspberry toad lily seeds
    - venus flytrap seeds or plants
    - moss or trailing phlox (pinks or purples)
    - passion flower varieties
    - Japanese red maple seeds
    - african violet seeds (no cuttings)
    - primrose seeds
    - clematis seeds in pink varieties - or any other color too
    - nelumbo nucifera lotus - all colors
    - ornamental hot or sweet peppers that turn many colors


    Some hot pepper varieties I have, or will have shortly:

    ~ Black Cuban
    ~ Black Scorpion Tongue
    ~ Purple Pepper
    ~ Numex Twilight
    ~ Numex Centennial
    ~ Tobasco
    ~ Peach Habanero
    ~ Orange Habanero
    ~ Fish (heirloom)
    ~ Jimmy Nardello (looks like red cayenne, but fruits are sweet!)
    ~ Togarashi (5 color Japanese pepper)
    ~ Ornamental Variegated Japanese pepper
    ~ Purple Tiger
    ~ Fire Cracker
    ~ Aurora
    ~ Explosive Blast
    ~ Medusa
    ~ Little Blue Pot
    ~ Long Red Cayenne
    ~ Trifetti Variegata
    ~ Bolivian Rainbow
    ~ Black Pearl
    ~ Fluorescent Purple
    ~ Red Cherry
    ~ Purple Cayenne


    My lists will be changing all the time. Especially in late summer, early Fall - I will have many more seeds to add to my 'have' list, as I collect and dry them. Trades can be arranged through PM's.

    If you are looking to add to your own collection, as well as contribute to someone elses - this is the thread for you!

    Hope to see what others have and want, as well. Who knows, if we don't communicate...

    I think it's a type of fruit. a citrus...

    Hm...I'm also looking for Eucalyptus seeds. I want to see if I can grow it in a container. It'll be fun, I'm sure!

    Yup, I heard it is some kind of fruit tree! I want it!

    Time too, for me to remove a few things from my 'want' list, as someone has already been so kind as to supply me with some of my desires. I am so excited to recieve their package, I am nearly bursting!

    Also, yes Tugo, I will ask you about the maple seeds again in Oct/Nov., but I must send you something in return! After all, this is a seed traders thread, and we must do an exchange! I know it isn't necessary, but it is fun to trade, and it allows us both to have something new.

I LOVE the flowers HOW to collect the seed and when I could go round at others gardens ;-) haha.. I will have at least 200 Day lillies plant blooming this year I hope found the all growing along a ditch along a road on the same empty plot with the kale probably an EX garden
    of someone.. so I went digging in broad daylight no shame as no one took them over one year.. and replanted them as a hedge sort of thing all along our terraces .. you seem to have so many nice little seeds of flowers.. Can one START even now or later in spring will they still grow THIS YEAR?

    Well, you're right it is late, most of my seeds were started in March. Annuals however, are fast growing, and could still be sown now. Seeds sown directly in the garden will still take off and just bloom later than usual. My seeds are extremely fresh and viable though, so they will be more than ok to plant next season, even!

    I am going to pm ya tomorrow, so we can work this out specifically. You will be very happy, trust me. I am glad you like the flower seeds. They are not hard to grow at all.

    By the way, here I have to thank to forum members under the "genius acer" section, who helped me to choose the above maple last year to buy and advised me how to transplant and take care of her. She looks very healthy and beautiful (imo)

    Wow, you are so creative vicarious1! I am amazed at that tree! Wonderful - thank you for showing me. Yes, I would love some. I am going to pm you a bit later so we can work this out - I am late getting stuff done today because I was up half the night!

    Tugo, that young tree is beautiful! I am so grateful to you for sharing them with me! Thanks for the lovely picture. It looks very healthy, and pretty. Looking very forward to growing it.

    Lorax - I know we are still involved in a seed trade from before, but I wondered if I did in fact mail you a few different kinds of romaine - it's been awhile, so I forget. I want to mail you all my varieties, if not. Also too, you should be receiving that package from me soon - it's nearly been about three weeks! I am so nervous until you confirm that they have been received! You are going to be very happy! Didn't get your 2nd mailings yet, but I have my fingers crossed...

    : )

    You did, and I´m always looking for more, so no worries. I haven´t checked my mail in a while but I´m planning to on Monday or Tuesday when the clubhouse reopens, and I´ll let you know then.

    I´ve had stuff go missing in the last 2 mailings I´ve done, so I´d give them another couple of weeks and if they´re not there by then I´ll resend them. The third set will have some passionflowers in it.

    OMG - I love passion flower! I have a vine growng now from seed, but your varieties that we discussed previously, sound incredible! I am so excited! The romas I sent ya are VF hybrids! You are in for a real treat. I got you your very own packet, because I know you love them so much!

    Great about the romaine! I should have known that you are just a 'seedaholic' like me, who wants all the varieties available in our favorite plants! I know you like the romaines, but the 'buttercrunch' I sent will be awesome too. Oh man, I can just imagine the salads around your place this season! Mmmmmm.

    I am so glad I began this thread because it will be great for us all to trade stuff over the years! This thread never has to die, because we can edit our lists, each year! Wow, this is so cool.

    Can't wait to give and receive all the wonderful new kinds of plants we will all be growing...

    I have a can of loquat seeds that I save after chewing on the yummies if you'd like me to send you some Hollyberry. :)

    Response to other thread: The two in my backyard are 15-20 ft tall but I'm seeing how a baby - that mysteriously showed up in my front flowerbed - will do in a pot out side.

    I would certainly be willing to send you one of my varieties of your choice from my list, in exchange for the loquat seeds, ShearMe.

    Send me a pm...
