Les sent me very generous amounts of seeds--and some healthy cuttings that made a lovely bonus!

Very generous and honest trader. When I was new, she gave me lots of hints and help. We trade each year. She can grow anything from seed, one of the best gardeners around.

It's very easy to tell that Les is someone that enjoys giving. I received a very nice package of seeds and some rooted salvia for my hummingbirds and I couldn't be happier. Wonderful!

Les sent me seeds that I wanted even tho I was a newbie, and couldnt offer anything in return. When I receive the package, I was expecting one type of seed, and instead, it was A WHOLE ENVIE FULLLL OF SEED !!!!!!!! I did a seed dance, I was sooo excited !!!

Thank you for making my day !! I will enjoy sitting and watching them grow.

I should have searched for a thread started about Les earlier. I sent her hedychium gingers for a wonderful assortment of perennials, carefully packaged against the heat and a wonderful variety of plants with labels. You can't go wrong here. I too thank you Les!

Les very kindly sent me some melon seeds for a SASBE. She was very helpful and very generous with the seeds plus she sent bonus seeds! Thank you very much. I highly recommended her to anyone. I can't wait to plant these Tigger melons for my daughter!

My second yr trading with Les and all I can say is wow! First class plants(and so many!) carefully wrapped, looking none the worse from their trip from NC. I look forward to enticing Les with more gingers next yr, many thanks!

Les sent me some hellebore seeds for postage after not finding anything on my list he was interested in. He mailed very promptly on my promise to mail him postage. I am thrilled with the amount of seeds! The communication was excellent too! I look forward to someday having something this prolific gardener is interested in so we can do a real trade!

Thanks, Les! HIGHLY recommended as a trader!

Les had some Hellebore seeds that I really wanted, but I didn't have anything he was interested in. After he finished his trades, he still had some left and kindly offered them to me and was mailing out immediately on my good faith promise to send the postage right away. I did so and received the 75 hellebore seeds and next spring will have some gorgeous lenton roses! Thanks so much for having faith in me, Les! I really look forward to being able to do a real trade with you someday! Hopefully I can catch up to the wonderful list you have!

I sent a few packets of squash seeds to Les and received an envelope practically overflowing with SIX varieties of heuchera, TWO varieties of Hellebore along with everything else we discussed - plus instructions for what to do with it all! I'm completely astounded by love2gardenNC's generosity and count myself blessed for having had the pleasure of trading with Les.

Thank you again,

Michelle

Just traded with Les for things to plant for kids see her post in the conversations side of the seed exchange. Hardly anyone seems to go there. Les sent me a ton of heuchera and salvia before i could even get my package out. Maybe you have something perfect for kids (strawberry popcorn hint hint)

Holy cow,...! Today I received Les' end of a trade and I must say I am beyond pleased! Les' seeds were not only very well labeled and bubble-envy protected for transit, but also well stabilized in position so as not to shift around causing the USPS consternation, etc. Additionally, Les was extremely generous with the amount of seeds! I am truly one very happy camper, here! Uber thanks, Les! :)

Les is one of the most generous people I have ever met. I posted a want list for Columbine and Hellebore to the seed exchange. She sent me an email offering fresh seed from both, as well as a couple of Hellebore seedlings for postage. She also offered anything else that I wanted off her list. When I opened the envelope, it was stuffed full of seeds, three hellebore seedlings, and a couple of bonus packs. I would not hesitate to to trade with Les again!
