Commercial order split-- J.L. Hudson
Just wondering if any of the "regulars" here would like to share my J.L. Hudson order this year. J.L. Hudson's quantities are generous, the prices reasonable, and the shipping charges ($2.50 USD) are uncommonly low. Here are the "shareable" items on my list:

Here's how it would work. Pick the varieties-- at least three-- that you'd like to split in half with me. After I receive the seeds, I will let you know the total cost based on the invoice amount. You send me a cheque or a PayPal payment for your share: HALF the listed price, plus U.S. exchange, plus the cost of a couple of stamps for my mailing cost to you, plus your share of the shipping. The shipping cost will be split equally among the people participating.
Then I split the packets being shared, package and re-label them, and mail them out to the participants. A maximum of two people (i.e. me and one other) will share a packet-- the number of seeds you'll receive will be half the packet amount. If more than one person is interested in a variety, it'll be first-come.
Here's an excel spreadsheet that gives descriptions and seed counts for each variety:
If you're interested, please e-mail me. I'll post here what varieties have been taken.
