WANTED: 'Christmas Wishes' seed lists

greylady_gardenerNovember 4, 2008

Hi All! I hope not to be stepping on anyone's toes with this post, but would like to start a 'Christmas Wish' list so that we can maybe get some of our seed wishes granted. I know it is early to be starting but the stores are decorating for Christmas and setting up their merchandise already so why not?! :)

Starting this early will give us time to go through our seeds and decide what our wishes are and to go through our seeds and decide what we have that we can gift to others from their lists.

For anyone not familiar with the concept....

1. think about what you would like to grow next season

2. post your list here so that others can see what you are wishing for.

3. Wait for someone to contact you for your address.(have your e-mail enabled on you member page)

4. Check out the other lists posted here and see if you can grant any of their wishes--(totally voluntary--not mandatory but nice if you can--:)

****You do not have to trade seeds with anyone, or be able to grant anyone elses wishes. It is totally voluntary as to whether you grant a wish.****

This is always fun so join in and let's see those lists!!

If you have any questions, please ask

Looking forward to seeing others Christmas lists and hopefully I can help fill a couple of stockings. Thanks....Heather

Kenny, Santa has a surprise for you...

I'm usually the first to decry the blatant commercialization and rampant greed that puts a stranglehold on North American culture starting on November 1. These Santa surprises are a nice way to do some giving without buying into all that cr*p.

Here's my wish list:

# Alcea rugosa (fresh) "russian" hollyhock
# Antennaria alpina (alpine pussytoes)
# Antennaria plantaginifolia (plantain-leaf pussytoes)
# Astrantia, any variety (fresh seed)
# Heuchera micrantha 'Palace Purple'
# Linum flavum 'Compactum' or any yellow-flowering flax
# Penstemon fruticosus (shrubby / bush penstemon)
# Phlomis russeliana (yellow jerusalem sage)
# Primula veris (plain ol' cowslip)
# Sisymbrium luteum (hesperis lutea)

Thanks for starting this thread, Lois.

Thanks for joining in OG, Heather and Bev!
See everyone? Santa is already starting to grant wishes! :)

Get those lists posted--most of us have a list on our pages with seeds/plants that we are hoping for--not everyone is going to go and look at it, so this is your chance to let us know what it is that you want.

Hi ladybug, you can contact the member by going to their member page and clicking on their e-mail or you could leave a message here and ask them to contact you with their address....which ever works best for you.
If you do contact them directly and don't hear back, it might be a good idea to leave a message here for them as the mail could get lost.

I think Santa might have some things on your wish list so why don't you contact me through my e-mail with your address, and I will have him send them to you.

I would love to get some 2008 organic tomato seeds, just plain red ones in different sizes and ready at different times, i.e. cherry, early, mid season and some large late ones, possibly some of the brandywine series. I've heard that they are very good.

I would also like some organic bell pepper seeds in different colours, i.e. ivory, red, orange, yellow and green. I would love some bianca pepper seeds.

I would also like some Hopi pale gray squash seeds. I have heard that they keep the best out of all the winter squash but have been unable to find any. I'm planning on growing some hubbard, acorn and pepper squash too and can use organic seeds for those as well.

Hi All! I usually hang out over at the Cottage Garden, but Greylady invited me over here.

My wish list would be:
shirley poppy
agapanthus
cosmos
larkspur

I have to share:

This is a new property to me so don't know the correct names. I 'tried' to separate the colours into pale yellow; wine & white; deep pink & white.
Aslo:
Columbine 'magpie'
" unnamed semi-double pink
Blue peach leaved bell flower
Nastursium seed collected this summer from 'Out of Africa'
White Obedient plant
White Spiderwort
Skyblue Spiderwort
Antique single Magenta peonie

Sorry, but my latin is humbled by yours!
And I hope that the picture miniturized properly, and does not offend anyone on dailup. btw, the nastursium may not come true, but a couple of the seeds that sprouted did have the lovely variegated leaves.

Thanks, Nancy.

If Santa is listening, he knows I'm kind of hooked on cosmos this year. Santa knows that I'm wishing for the following:
Cosmos Brown Flower, Tetra Versailles Red, Bipinnatus Double Click, Gazebo Dwarf Red, Day Dream, Chocolate cosmos, Phillipine, and Happy Ring.

Claubill,

Santa just told me he had some Cosmos for you. They are seeds from Daydream grown in one of the elve's gardens and there may be variations since there's a lot of cross pollination going on. If you want some from this elve's private stash, just send me your e-mail and Santa will have a little chat with the elf about being good and sharing. :O)

Hey Claudette in Sudbury,

I googled Cosmos "Phillipine" and the only hits were from photos on DG and they sure don't look like Cosmos. They look exactly like a Cosmidium "Philippine", which is a California native wildflower.

Santa will send you some seeds-- he still has your address from a trade last year.

G'day all

I'm Baaaaaaaaack!!!!!!!! It feels like I am starting a new life. I am in a fantastic rental in the "old south" area of London and I have the go-ahead from the landlord to garden..."Little does he know what that means MUAAAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAAA", says Justine in maniacal form.

It has taken me a couple of moves, and a couple of years to be ready to "dig-in-da-dirt" again, and here I go again.

All I want for Christmas are any seeds to make my special garden lush and abundant with beautiful plants and lovely herbs, so whatever Santa has to give this very excited gardener, I will accept with much gratitude! I am planning to do "Winter-sowing" BIG TIME!

Love to garden, and love to be back on gardenweb!!!!!!!!

Thanks a bunch,(a bunch of flowers that is),
and
of
course..

g.g.t.a. that's great gardening to all!

I'd love to get some Golden Chain tree (Laburnum) seeds or Japanese Dogwood (Cornus kousa ) seeds for Christmas.

Have a dozen of momordica seeds, so I will help Santa to deliver them to first two folks who e-mail me (around 6-7 seeds per package)

Dear Santa,

My Christmas wish list:
Sungold OP
Strawberry popcorn, any popcorn
Strawberry
zucchini- a vining variety
squash- sweet dumpling and buttercup

I'm also looking to grow some kale, chard, and peas, but I'm not too familiar with their varieties.

Thank you Santa.

I don't know if Santa is still accepting wishes, but I have been wanting Campanula 'Blue Clips' and any colour of Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla vulgaris). I have had trades of both and the Blue Clips turned out to be tiny poppies, and the Pasque Flowers never showed. I have been a very good girl!!

Wish I could play the music..o.k girls..dah do, dah do , dah do dah do dah do..

Santa Baby, slip a sable under the tree, For me.
been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 54 convertible too,
Light blue.
I'll wait up for you dear,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I've missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you'll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna yacht,
And really that's not a lot,
Been an angel all year,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, there's one thing I really do need,
The deed
To a platinum mine,
Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex,
And checks.
Sign your 'X' on the line,
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's,
I really do believe in you,
Let's see if you believe in me,

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing,
A ring.
I don't mean on the phone,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry, tonight.

My fave Christmas song!
