HAVE: 2008 Annual Fall Group Exchange

origami_master(5b)August 19, 2008

It's almost that time again. This year, will be our third annual group exchange, and I extend an invitation to past members who have participated, and a special invitation to our newer members to participate. I'm sure your gardens are still in bloom, and it is still early to collect seeds, but I though an early note will give notice so interested members can keep an eye out for seeds. As per previous years, the exchange will take place during the first two weeks of October. Interested members, please post here, or email me at: kennyso25@gmail.com

Thank you, and I hope everyone has an enjoyable experience!

Kenny

Please note that if anyone receives the seeds labelled Rodgersia that it should read: ligularia dentata. (It is a very nice plant for shade/part-shade with burgundy leaves and a yellow daisy-like flower) I apologize for any confusion/inconvenience this may have caused. Realized my mistake once the seeds were sent in. Thanks in advance for your understanding. Carol

Hi Kenny,

Just wondering what the deadline will be to get seeds into you? I'm away a couple of weeks later in September, so I may or may not participate depending on the deadline. The flowers are really late this year, so I don't expect I'll be able to do much harvesting until the end of september.

Please let me know when you have a minute.

Thanks....Heather

PS...thanks for coordinating this huge task once again. All of us addicted gardeners really do appreciate it :)

I was thinking the seeds have to be in by October 10th, and I'm suggesting that seeds should be mailed no later than the preceding Monday (the 6th). There will be another exchange some time in March/April so if anyone has extra seeds from sowing, there's an opportunity to trade for other seeds before the 'recommended sow before frost 6-8 weeks' suggestion.

The deadline to have your seeds in my hands will be October 10. I suggest that seeds be mailed no later than the 6th, so you can make the deadline. Please make note of the following changes for this year:

1. if you choose to include a list of what you would not like to receive back, please do not send in seeds on that list. If you write that you would not like to receive marigold seeds, please do not send in marigold seeds.

2. please print the names of seeds either on a label or directly on the packet/baggie. Please do not write in cursive.

3. Lastly, please keep in mind that i will usually supplement seeds from my own collection so that everyone can have at least one thing on their wish list...BUT in some cases, no one send seeds on a wish list, and i don't have seeds from a wishlist, so please understand if I can't fill a wishlist (blue poppies seem to be a very sought after plant, but please understand that the blue poppy will die after setting seeds, hence the seeds are so rare)

all the packages are sorted and are ready to mail except for two. just a general note: I had about everyone say no marigolds, and there were people who sent marigolds. What I did was swap marigold seeds with everyone who sent them in, and swapped some of my seeds for some marigolds. However, there were many more packages than were needed, so I had to send some packets back (almost everyone got 1-2 packets back). I've sent emails to some members who i had to run by some things. Hopefully everyone will be able to get their seeds before the end of next week.

Kenny,
I received my seeds today. Thank you for all your work.Unfortunately my run of bad luck with Canada Post has continued this month. My package arrived opened. There were only 10 packs inside. The good news is that I did get some new marigolds, delphinium, and datura that I had hoped for. I hope that whoever has the seeds puts them to use and enjoys them.... Anyway these things happen sometimes ...we just had a parcel to Nanuvit go missing too!! It was fun participating and Kenny I'll be watching for your swap post again next year.

I'm glad they're starting to arrive. HOpefully everyone gets theirs soon.

Marlene, I am really REALLY sorry about your package. I probably didn't tape the envelope close securely enough. Please accept my apologizes. Also, if you would like, email me a copy of your wish list, and I'll send you what I have on your list :D

Bo, I vaguely remember a packet marked SPEAR...was it a small plastic baggie with small seeds (like the size of snapdragon seed?) I'll look around a bit for you. I should have made a note when I first saw it and asked whoever sent them in. If you sent in the SPEAR seeds, please post here or email me if you don't want to be named...or if you only know the plant as SPEAR, could you please describe it (like how the flower looks like).

And also, if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Any suggestions to make the trade better, or to make it more fair, or suggestions of how I can make the swap better.

Marlene, It is funny you mentioned that your package arrived opened because mine did too. Since my package had the same number of seed packs as I had sent, I figured nothing was taken. The envelope had a footprint on it so I think someone had stepped on it. Boy, what is happening at Canada Post. Their poor service won't stop me from participating in these swaps. I certainly enjoy them:)

Thanks Wendy. I doubt it's the Sansevieria as i have this plant for many years and I've never seen it bloom. I guess I'll just plant the seeds and wait to see what comes out. And maybe the person that sent the seeds will read this post and let us know what kind of a plant SPEAR is :-)

Hi gang.

I just had to comment on the opened mail thing. I've done about 7 or 8 trades in the past 2 months and I've noticed that the envelopes I've received that have been reused and taped closed before being sent out to me seem to be an open invitation for postal workers to re-open them. The ones I've received with the original flap sealed have been fine.

Oh and Wendy, I had a package come back to me with a "no such number" sticker on it (I've had 2 of these with no apparent address errors...don't know what that's about) and this one had a truck tire print across it!

Received the seeds yesterday. Thanks for arranging this Kenny. This must have been a ton of work for you.

My package arrrived intact - no problems.

Only one thing - somebody sent me a pack of seeds that said:

'Giant Imperial - Annual'.

Does the sender remember what this is?

Laura, I'm not surprised at getting reused envelopes, because if it can be reused, you should reuse. But it's just sometimes, the envelope has been used, opened and closed so many times that the paper gets really thin, and you can actually see the bubble wrap inside. The address labels are read by machines at the sorting facility at Canada Post. If the address is not clear, then it goes to a person mail sorter.
Jasmine, I think it might be Larkspur or Stock.
It's taking longer this year for the packages to reach their destination, but they should be getting there.

Hi Kenny,

My surprise package arrived today. What a wonderful variety of seeds. Thanks for all of your hard work in organizing this.

In case anyone else reads this note, I too received a package of "spear" seeds and would be very interested in knowing more about this plant. To me these look like peony poppy seeds and judging from the volume in the package, this has to be from a plant that produces an abundance of seed.

It would be great if the person that contributed the "spear" seeds to the swap could post a note with more information on the plant...maybe a picture, so we can get information through the name that plant forum.

Thanks so much....Heather

Hi all,
I wasn't able to participate in the ex this time, but have looked in to see how it went. I read about the packages marked "spear" and wondered if it could be spearmint. I am not sure what spearmint seeds look like, but maybe someone else who knows could comment, since Heather provided a description of the ones sent..do they look like poppy seeds?
just a thought

mint seeds are really small, much smaller than poppy seeds, so I'm pretty sure it's not mint. I'm still looking

Hi Kenny,

I received my seed package last night. I have never participated in a seed exchange before but have to assume it is a lot of work to organize it all, especially with all of the wonderful different varieties you had to sort through. Thank-you very much for doing this, it was great fun.
