2013 commercial seed swap

ishareflowersJanuary 3, 2013

This swap is for COMMERCIAL SEEDS ONLY, the packs must be seeds from 2010 or newer. Since these will be commercial seeds, you will probably get 1/2 trades but it will allow you to try some of the newer varieties out there.

PLEASE DO NOT send any cosmos,marigold or zinnia mixes (i have way too many that I got stuck with) Please don't send dollar store type seeds. If these types are sent they will not count towards your total number sent and will be returned to you.

PLEASE DO NOT send seeds that are known to have a short shelf life if probable viability time has gone by. A few seeds are good for one year only, such as onions, parsnips, parsley, chives, shiso, scorzonera, Batavian endive, licorice, pennyroyal, St Johnswort, liatris, delphinium, larkspur, perennial phlox, and any seed that has been pelleted (copied from Fedco).

Flowers and veggies are fine, last year we did both and it worked out. I did have a player that sent in all veggie seeds request only flower seeds in return, this I cannot do. If you sent in all veggies seeds, chances are you will get mostly veggie seeds back.

Here are the rules...

1. Must be commercial seeds

2. your packages must be labeled with year and where purchased if not in original packaging.

3. No more than 5 packs of the same type of seed (please don't make 5 packets of the same seed with 5 seeds in each package) I have purchased seeds that come with only 10 seeds to a package and shared only 5 seeds of that, However, I have also gotten seeds with 5 packages of 10 mixed marigold seeds. Please don't do that...lol. I try to keep this swap as fair as possible for everyone involved so please only send what you would be happy to get in return.

4. SEEDS MUST REACH ME by March 1. I will send my addy as people sign up, you can mail whenever you are ready to do so.

5. seeds will be mailed out to you no later than March,7th. I have sent out packages before if a complete wishlist has been filled.

6. I must have a current WANTS LIST, either sent with your seeds or on your gw page for me to check when sorting out the incoming packages.

7. sign ups are until the mail date...The more the merrier!

When mailing seeds, please be sure to put the same amount of postage that it cost you to mail PLUS.85 for delivery conf#. In 3 three years only one package has been lost, sadly, it didn't have a conf#. I replaced the seeds but I will not be replacing if a package is lost. I strongly suggest a delivery conf#!!

I mail from the post office so stamps or cash is fine, change will be returned with your seeds!

Last but not least, I send seeds from my garden if I see them on your wants list. I do not count them towards my contribution but you may want to add an extra stamp or two just in case. I ALWAYS return any unused postage!!!

Happy New Year!

Lisa

Good Morning All,

I have sent emails with my addy to everyone that has signed up so far.

Michelle, I have had players that sent in 6 packs of commercial seeds, it's okay. As long as they are not dollar store or walmart type seeds, they are swappable! it's not about how many you have, it's just a chance to try something that you wouldn't/couldn't purchase yourself.

I was just reading the wrong post. Your commercial seed swap from 2011 is just 2 posts down now. Not sure if some of the posts were from this year or not. I don't have time to check now! If you want to break my seed packs down you can! I am mostly interested in veggies and herbs,but there were also some flowers listed on my wants list. Thanks for doing this swap. I know how much time is in a day. I'm home all day too!

Hello All,

I appreciate those who have sent seeds in already to keep me busy. However, you have plenty of time to get your packages together so please don't feel rushed!

I had a large package of seeds in my mailbox this morning, it was from Jaynine. Thank you!

Subruralgal, the same thing happened! When I open the email this is what I see.

If anyone of you have time, please check out select seeds online catalogue...Jaynine has a serious seed shopping issue and loves them!!lol

Please remember....the more you have on your wants list,the better chance you have of getting what you would like in return.

Good Morning All!

Alana, you funny girl! There is plenty of time to get your seeds together, no worries here.

Subrural, Please email me from your email account, not garden web.

I posted yesterday about looking at select seeds website. I failed to mention that you should add anything that interests you to your wants list. I'm pretty sure that between Jaynine and myself we have at least one of everything from this site in the swap!! I also shop swallowtail, parks, botanical interests, t & M and stokes seeds so feel free to add anything of interest to your wants lists!

Today will be the day that I make up my gallon size baggies and alphabetize all the seeds that have come in so far. this makes it a lot easier to find the seed packets when I see it on a wish list.

I know that a few of you(including myself), have seeds out in swaps and are expecting packages back soon. Please post here if that is the case, I will hold off on looking at your wants list. I will ask that you don't take away any wants after Feb,14th, you can add right up until the mail date of March,1st. I will print a wants list and attach it to your bag on the 14th so if you add anything to your wants nafter that, post here that you have added and I will print a new one for your bag.

If your wants list is complete and ready for me to view, please let me know that too.

NEW PLAYERS....I have gotten a couple of very specific wish lists via email. Please understand that what you get back is solely based on what comes in to the swap.

Time to sort.

Have a great day!

I just had an idea.....I am going to start a seperate thread for players to post their WISH LIST when it's complete.

It will be easier for me to search lists this way and you can edit them if you need to add on items.

Please have your list posted no later than Feb,14th, nothing can be removed after this time but you can add up until the day I am mailing seeds home.

Sound good??? I hope so!

Good Morning All !

One more day to post your wish list before I start filling bags for the ride home.

This DOES NOT mean that you can't post one, it just means that I will be dropping wants into bags and less and less seeds will be available to fill wishes.

I like to have all wish lists up at the same time so that I can be fair when sorting wants. If I have 20 wants from one players list when I am sorting but it's on another players list that I only have 5 wants, I give them to the one with only 5 wants......make sense??? I do it this way so that everyone or almost everyone gets some wishes filled. I try to be fair!

Monica..I got your seeds in the mail yesterday!

Hello,

I started sorting a bit last night and was able to fill quite a few wishes for the flower growers... I haven't started on veggies yet.

Jas-il Your seeds arrived..

Hibiscusfan, you are a lucky lady! Your package was almost wide open BUT contained your wish list, $5 and 52 packets of seeds. Hopefully, this is what it was supposed to be!!!

Sassy, oh Sassy, where are you. I can just look at your trade page for a wish list if you like.

GAME TIME!

I will post in the morning so that everyone has a chance to see that one will be played..The prize will be seeds of course!

I didn't order like a crazy lady this year BUT I did just find my envy with 26 packs from Swallowtail of seeds that I ordered and forgot about! Things were crazy here trying to get my oldest out and into her new home, It was one issue after another. I a have also ordered from T & M. I will let the winner choose their prize from them or I can choose from my last years seeds"way too many to list> something off your wish list,

Lisa

jas_il, I keep meaning to ask every time I see your name on the thread...any chance that you're planning to go to the seed swap at the Chicago Botanic Garden on the 24th? I'm planning to go in hopes of finding new things-maybe even some that I can bring to the plant swap in May.

Lisa, guess I messed up big time on sealing my package! I had 135 packs in my package and also a listing of what was in it. My fault!! Glad you received the $5. Will use a new padded envelope next time.

OH NO Suzanne! That's not so good then, I thought you were the luckiest woman around when I saw $$ and seeds in there. I will send you some extras from my stash to try and cushion the blow!

Randys, I sent you an email, Please check your spam.

Pinkiris, it is not too late, don't worry! I just emailed you again.

Randy, you should have an email now. I went back and checked my sent mail. I sent it to aplacetofledge, instead of aplace2fledge....sorry! My memory is not what it used to be...lol

I got a new laptop last week...I think I need to watch the tutorial!

GAME TIME!

The first set of letters will be the genus, the second and third is the specific name of such plant.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Each player may pick one letter per day to fill in the plant name....you may guess at the plant name once per day as well. This will give all players a chance at winning!

NEW GAME!

This will be like a wheel of fortune....lol Each player will take an imaginary spin and call a letter. 1 spin and 1 guess per day, per player.

This is a quote

Good luck!

Lisa ~ I'm sorry I didn't get back here to post the want list..lol I must've missed that part of the directions. I just had the swap on my calendar and knew about the mailing date. I'll be mailing mine this wkend. It's close to the finish line but it's the best I can do! New job, full time school, plus doing all the 'mom stuff' in between. *whew*

I just gotta look forward for those happy moments of seeing those manila packages with seeds in the mailbox to make my day! Luckily the job is short term and will end just in time for spring planting..LOL

Please if you haven't mailed yet, put your gw screen name on your seed packets! I have to put them on when you don't so that you don't get your own seeds back.

I have emailed both Mei and happygardener through the garden web....They don't always go through that way, neither one of you have an email listed for me to send you my addy. Please sent me an email ishareflowers@aol.com from your regular email NOT GARDEN WEB....:)

Rhodes, I got an envy today. I thought it was your postage because it didn't come in your first package. It was a sasbe that you were sending to Vina, you mailed it to the wrong person! Please let me know what you want me to do with it.

Hi,

I have sorted alphabetically all the seeds that have been sent in thus far. We have lots of veggies! I will be sending you ONLY the amount of veggies that you sent in unless you say that you want extras/doubles.. Flower growers, if you want some veggies, say so. Kousa sent in very large full packs of veggies and doesn't want anything in return "I will be sending her some garden surprise seeds>. .These will be extras and not counted towards your return numbers. "I will make up the flower difference with my stash>

Primrose
micyrey

I got your seeds!

4 more days to March, 1st...Please get your seeds out now!

Hi Lisa,
I will take some vegies but since I am gardening in raised garden boxes, I can't use corn, squash, and large watermelon that take large areas., But if they are bush v
vegies, beans, etc. that would be ok.

Thanks Lisa,
