I have some seeds in the fridge now from a white-on-red columbine (I don't know what exact name, they were there when I moved into the house last year.) I would love to trade some for some other colors' seeds to cross-pollinate. I'd love purple. :)

i have some nice white aquilegia vulgaris that did very well this year and have a lovely mounding habit. I would love to offer those up for this trade. I'm afraid that's all I have--the slugs got the rest. Do any of you have slugs that love columbine leaves? The ones in my garden eat all the leaves then leave the flower standing naked at the top of a long leafless stem. It's so sad. Needless to say, those varieties didn't make very good seed :(. Anyway, I'd love to be in on this swap. Candy, thanks so much for organizing it.

hello everyone
lets give candy a few more days, and if we don't here from her say by next monday, I'll host. if she turns up she can send her seeds to me and she can still perticipate. I have some great seeds and would like some more in return. they don't have to be names but it would be great if you could list the color and if they are single or double.
and please no more than three packs of the same kind. please send a list with your seeds what kind you are sending so you don't get the same ones back, and don't forget to send postage for the return.
I'll keep watching, and I'll try to find candy's e-mail, I have traded with her before and it should be in the e-mail trash somewhere.
get your seeds ready to go becouse one way or another we'll have this swap.

I have some spring magic rose and ivory that I've already collected. I also have some nora barlow, yellow (I think it's a canary?), blue & white, and ruby port that I haven't collected yet - they aren't quite ready and i'm not sure how many seeds i'll get from them this year - the nora and ruby port are new this year (at least in my yard). Everything is open pollinated and I know sometimes columbines get a little mixed up that way, but they are one of my favorite flowers and I would love to participate if it's ok with everyone. How many packets of seeds should we send? and how much per packet?

hello
candy can't host due health problems, she said it was ok for me host.
lets see if we can get seeds in by aug. 1st.
mark all seeds with name/color and year collected, seeds from 06 are ok but please no older.
I would say at least 15 seeds per pack and no more than 3 packs of each kind.
I will return them as fast as I can.
I will try to e-mail everyone with my address tonight.
well I think thats all for now let me know if you have any questions

I'm sending three packets of red columbine seed. I don't readily know the difference between "double" and "Single", but from pics I've looked at online, I'd call these Single. And going on that, I'd say it's the "single" type that I'm looking for in the blue/purple range. Maybe someone could post some single-vs-double pics to confirm for me? Thanks

hello
I got seeds from littlegardenhoer today, WOW you sent so many, I might have trouble sending you back 24 diffrent columbines. so far with most of the envies in we only have 14 diffrent kinds of columbines ( thats with out mine, but I don't think I have ten diffrent ones ) would you mind if I send you a few other seeds to make up the diffrence, I don't want to send you more than one packet of each kind, unless you want extras for tradeing.
let me know

hello
littlegardenhoer - ok I'll look at your wants list and pick ut some seeds for you.
I know I said I'd wait till thursday for our last persone to get a hold of me, but I think I'll get started sorting tonight. if it goes quickly I'll have them out tomarrow or friday.
I mixed all my "mixed columbines" I have gotten from trades and swaps and I think I have enough to send everyone a bonus mixed columbines packet.

I will post when they all go out.

thanks everyone

hello
well everyones seeds are on the way. and I think everyone got more than they sent :)
I love the seeds I picked out too.
a big thank you to everyone for sharing their seeds with the group, we all should have lots of great flowers.
those that live on milder areas (zone 6 and up) should be able to plant some seeds this year and maybe have flowers next year. the rest of us will have to wait. columbines winter sow well and I have over 75 plants I started this way and are doing well.
please let me know as they get home I will keep track.
have a great day

My seeds were waiting for me when I got home yesterday. I started giggling when I saw them and I think my husband thought maybe I was a tad touched for a moment until he realized what they were. Thank you everyone!

Hey all, I just moved into a new house that has a half wooded Lot(1 acre) and its been my dream house for years. Needless to say the only growing here are the native wild flowers (Jack-in-the-pulpit, viginia Blue bells and MEGA Lady fers, I really want some color so don't have no seeds to offer yet, but wondering if I can still get a few seeds from some of you and start trading next year ? I do have castor Bean seeds I could offer in trade from my last house.
