NEW: Send 3 Get 3 Swap

guardlobo(7 TN)April 19, 2013

I was shocked to see no current group swaps going, so here is one.

Send 3 different packs of seeds (vegetables, flowers, herbs, etc) along with a SASBE and get 3 back.

Try to send seeds that others would be interested in. We all seem to have too much zucchini and squash, so try to send something that will add variety to other people's gardens.

Extra seed packets may be sent and will be used as bonuses. Please only expect 3 back, but feel free to be generous. If everyone is generous, everyone will get more than 3 back.

Post below and contact me for the address to send these to by May 10. All seeds need to be received by May 20. They will be shipped back by May 23. Make sure you include enough postage for a 3 ounce package, maybe 4 if your bubble mailer is a little heavy. You may make requests, but I will only be able to fulfill them if I already have the seeds or someone else sends them.

Thank you and let the trading begin!

Welcome to Garden Web!
At this point in the season, I don't do a lot of seed trading, but as you are new to GW and may not have sent a lot of trades in the past, I will point out that 3 packs of seeds in a bubble envelope usually weighs less than an ounce unless you are sending very large seeds. Also, the postage to send and receive back just 3 packs of seeds, unless they are exactly what you are looking for, is not really very cost effective.

Those are just suggestions that might help you tweak your swap to appeal to more people next time.

If I remember right, the one I did years ago the minimum was 10.Anything over that was extra & I divided out evenly until I ran out.
