WANTED: seed swap

austinroseloverSeptember 1, 2008

Would anyone be interested in doing a seed swap? I hosted one about 4 or 5 years ago and it was alot of fun. The way it works is anyone who is interested sends me a list of flower seeds that they would like to have and seeds that they have available and I fill everyone's seed wish list after everyone has mailed me their seed packets(homeade seed packets are cute and fun.) I would set a deadline for when all the seeds needed to be sent to me and then fulfil the seed wish lists and then mail out all the seed parcels. Its alot of fun, kind of like an early Christmas present for everyone. All it costs is an SASE. What do you think?

To make it really fun we need at least 5 people to join. The more the merrier!!! The deadline will be somewhere around the end of october.

I'm just getting started with seed saving and trading, but I'd like to participate if I can. How many seed packets do you think we would have to contribute? I have quite a few different kinds of seeds saved now but I don't if it would be enough.

Well, it should be an even number traded. Let's say you have three types of seed on your wish list, then that's how many you should contribute. If you want to contribute more, then they can be given out as bonuses. however many you want is how many you should contribute. Sound easy enough?
