Has anyone traded with this gal or, know her??
I've wondered, too.
I got an email stating that if I was interested, I needed to email her. i did but have not heard anything back...
I contacted her about the irises & daylilies for postage. Sent payment to cover postage, & we discussed the types I wanted. When my payment arrived, she let me know, and was quite enthusiastic about having help emptying a bed in order to plant other plants. :)
Just yesterday, a medium flat-rate box arrived from her, full of irises. Many were named, even, although I had not requested or expected such! I am delighted by this trade, and would absolutely do another trade with her in the future.
I sent twenty dollars for a large box. She was very nice.
Yesterday I recieved a box that cost 6$ in postage of dayliles and iris. Nice looking plants. No note on who sent them. I emailed her but have heard nothing back...
Perhaps she has more boxes coming to me? I sure would like to know~
Today I received a box that cost $ 9.65 in postage with 36 iris rhizomes. I mailed $20 cash.
Here is a link that might be useful: Iris For Postage
Received 48 iris rhizomes from Kathy today the postage was $9.65 with extra delivery Confirmation. I sent a $15.80 money order for postage on April 8, 2011.
Kathy offered iris and daylilies for postage and requested $20.00 for postage,
Received many ( about 50) very dry and mostly small rhizomes in a large box for $11.49 postage.
Not up to the standards that I have come to expect from GArden Web members. I emailed that I was disappointed with the "trade" but got no reply.
I've sent postage for daylilys/ iris from another member and got a small flat rate box 5.50 and sent 15. I think a few here do "postage for plants"
I got back a very "snappy" :( responds
i've been clear to ask what size box and how many and dry plants or ?
I think if you're going to make a few bucks on the plants then send something nice in the box as an extra treat so we don't feel so burned..........lesson learned
Yes, mine were small and dry. Only about three regular size rhizomes. I planted mine out after soaking them with some water and epsom salts. I also used some bulb food. We shall see what happens next year.
I have been blessed by many Garden Web members, and very grateful. There are many kind people on here. I do my very best to reciprocate, and hope that I wow others on the receiving end. On this post, she requested $20 from me, and sent me a roughly $10 box half full of little dry rhizomes. If they were labelled, I might feel a little better. All I got was a note saying there were more than 10 varieties in there.
Do the math. If everyone sent $20 and received a box half full for $10, based on the many responses, she made some serious cash.
Also, I always take into consideration the time it takes for people to pack things up. If the box was full of decent sized labelled rhizomes, I wouldn't feel scammed.
I responded to kjean61`s offer of a large flat rate box of daylilies for postage of 20.00.I sent her the 20.00 via paypal and recieved my box of daylilies.Even tho the postage was high I am very pleased with my daylilies.I recieved 16 plants and most had 2 or more fans.They looked green and healthy.

Hrm. Ok, so I did get the irises, but did not get the daylilies.
Not being aware of the cost of sending a box, I thought I'd paid for both. With that being the case, I paid a rather lot more than I should have for a single box.
They were all in great shape, though!
