WANTED: Santa's Helper

signet_gwDecember 1, 2007

Hi All,

Thought I would be the one to throw this out there this year. How about a Santa's Helper Swap ?

Rules are: You can post up to 5 different types of seeds that you wish Santa would bring you . If someone has those seeds, they will contact you for your address ( so you will need to have your email active here ) and send them off to you (a sort of surprise for Christmas )We will have to get this ball rolling fairly quickly in order for the seeds to reach their destinations before Christmas .

I will start with my list:

Dear Santa , I would love to have the following seeds for Xmas

Hemerocallis seeds (daylily)

Cosmos Seashells

Liatris Spicata

Leonotis leonurus

Sweetgum

I have tried hard to be a good girl this year and if you have some in your pack I would love to try them in my gardens this coming year .....Thank you

Dear Santa: I've been dreaming about Echinaccea Razzmatazz and portulacas of all kinds. I've been good all year, or at least I tried. I hope you can hear me Santa.

IÂve been as good as I can  you know me well enough not to set the bar too high :)

HereÂs my wish list  itÂs some stuff to start a red bed (IÂm open to anything truly red) & some fillers IÂve been wanting:
Amaranthus  Velvet Curtains
Any reddish sunflower (Claret, Velvet Queen, Prado, etc)
Any tall branching sunflower (ie Soraya) Â birds got to them before I could harvest
Amaranthus  Hot Biscuits
Tall fall asters (I only have short ones)

I will leave out cookies & milk for you this year again, but can you please stay out of the liquor cabinet? I know the milk is better with a splash of Kahlua, but when you took off last year, you knocked the satellite dish off the roof.

Hugs,
Gail

Dear Santa,
In addition to having some seeds that match some of the requests above, I have a little wish list of my own :)
For next summer, mainly I'm looking for some heirloom tomatoes, named sunflowers (especially green or red ones), Salpiglossis, Hollyhock "Creme de Cassis", and almost any (not too invasive) "dark" or "black" flowers for my new dark-coloured bed.
Thank you Santa!

Santa, I've been good.
I'm a little late posting my list.
But if you could still check your bag for these seeds it would be great.

Seeds for White Moonflower Vine (Ipomoea Alba) P.S. Not Datura.

Any perennial fall aster seeds except purple I already have those.

Any perennial fall mum seeds except red and pink I already have those.

Thanks
