    Welcome back, Beth!


    Ist shot is my Plumeria branch cutting from Bob, that is now rooting and small leaves are growing from the tips...


    Second shot shows one of the brugmansia cuttings I am potting up today, because it is growing like crazy.

    I haven't been active either, Rob, and no, I haven't gotten the seeds. When did you ship them out?

    Almost forgot to ask, but how's your loquat doing? I will be experimenting with how well they do indoors this winter as they aren't deciduous and I want to keep one pretty small tree if I can.

    That's a good point penny.

    About two weeks ago shearme, but i didn't send anything i dont have extras too. I'll go to the post office this saturday at the latest and post out more things to you. From the list of things I recently received, a couple of pages back (the large list), is there something that interests you also? Let me know and I can throw in other things too. I'm really sorry for the delay, but i guess its also agreeable that you couldn't plant them now anyways. Still, I feel bad. Let me know and I willl keep you updated.

    Forgot to add also, HBL, how are your seeds coming along? I realize that mine still need 1-3 more additional months, which is no problem what so ever, i know everything is in great hands. Any news about something that sprouted? Look forward to hearing an update.

    I found some seeds from my neighbor's magnolia tree!!! Any one know how to germinate them? :o

    Don't re-send any seeds just yet, Rob, it'd be best to wait at least another week. ;)

    Wow, a lot of people popping back in after long absence (myself included)! I went up to Northern California to visit a friend for a couple weeks and then school started and things have been going by quicker and quicker since! Anyways, I'll work on a seed list soon :)

    Well, I'm out of ideas then, Lorax, hope you find a source in the end - even if it is "illegal."

    Good Monday morning everyone,

    Hope everyone is well and still saving lots of seeds.

    Thankfully the yard work is almost done, and the leaves raked.

    I thought it was my duty, as the person who began this thread, to inform people here, as to why I will no longer be able to respond to conversation type posts here, out of respect for the new rules of the forum.

    Unfortunately, we will have to curb the conversation in this thread, as this is the plant trading section, and the new rules of the forum have been given to us recently, in the form of the "Forum Charter". I don't want anyone to get in trouble with the new infraction system that is in place, so I think it would be wise for people in this thread, to read this carefully...

    http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=3316&goto=newpost


    This thread is for listing your seeds, and trading them through pm's with each other. Thanks for your co-operation. If you would like to converse in a more appropriate thread, in the conversation section, you are more than welcome to join here...

    Hey All!

    Here is my list from quite a while ago, I've added new things and taken off a thing or two I don't have any longer.

    I have:

    American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis)
    Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans)
    White Sage
    Chia (Salvia hispanica)
    Golden Chia (Salvia columbariae)
    Klip Dagga (Leonotis nepetifolia)
    Sacred Datura/Jimsonweed (Datura wrightii)
    Syrian Rue (Peganum harmala)
    Heavenly Blue Morning Glories (Ipomoea tricolor)
    Lavender
    Basil
    Echinacea
    Clematis brachiata
    Hot peppers! (Capsicum annum : Thai, Jalapeño, Piquin, Serrano and Arora (Thanks to Sherry! :D ))
    UnIDed flower (see http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/forums/showthread.php?p=213285#post213285 )
    UnIDed cactus (see #19 http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/fo...ight=iding+fun and feel free to post and IDs you may have :)


    I can trade smaller amounts of these as well:
    Spanish Tarragon/Mexican Mint Marigold (Tagetes lucida)
    Blue Passionflower (Passiflora caerulea)

    If you want to try to see if I can get a hold of some seeds (especially Southern California native plant seeds) I am always willing to trek around to see if I can find something as well. Just PM me the scientific name so I can see what it looks like.

    I am interested in trading for herbal/medicinal plants, entheo/ethnobotanical plants, edible plants, plants that attract hummingbirds/bees/ladybugs/butterflies/et c. and of course anything that is just stunningly beautiful :D
