Color RED Seed Swap

greenthumbgrow(7 - MD)July 30, 2009

Hi Everyone.... RED Flowers are my Favorites, and I am very excited to be your host.

This is the August color swap, featuring the color RED!

You may include seeds that contains anything RED, whether it is a flower, foliage, fruit, vegetable, herb, or whatever is related to RED!

You may send edible and non-edible seeds.

(Please specify what you would like back: edible, non-edibles, or a mix of both)

I will do my best to fill your request, but it all depends on what is sent in!

Absolutely NO Invasive Plants or Noxious Weeds!!!!

Please send seeds no older than 2 years old.

Please include on the packet: label, the seed's name, a little blurb about it,and whether your seeds are from a commercial source or hand-collected.

The limit for all of the color swaps has been 10 packs so far. But please feel free to send in some extras.

I can only promise that you will recieve the sending limit of 10 packs back, but I will try to send back extras to the people who sent in extras to be fair.

You can send in as little as 1 pack of seeds, there is no minimum to send in.

Please send in the number of seeds that you would be comfortable recieving yourself depending on the variety.

Please send only 1 pack per variety (for example, don't send in 7 packs of Coreopsis)! Again, you may send more than one pack of a certain variety, but please know that they will be counted as "extras". So each variety will be counted as one trade.

Signup Deadline: August 7th

Seeds Need to Arrive by: 14th

Mailed back by: August 21st

When you sign up,

please send me an e-mail with your

name,

address,

garden web name,

and e-mail address.

And I will reply back to you with my mailing address.

REMEMBER:

Use a bubble envelope (which will be used to mail back your new seeds)

mailing label with your address on it

Stamps equal to what you sent plus one not attached in case an extra stamp is needed (if the extra stamp is not needed, I will put it in your return envelope).

A list of what you sent in (so you don't get those seeds back)

Please Let me know if I forgot anything :-)

Thanks, Tammy, for hosting!

Yeah! Great start already!

OK one more rule.... When you sign up tell us a wish list so if someone has something on your list they can include it. But be sure to send the list with your envie also so that I know what you posted so if someone sends some of them I can be sure to get them to you. ALSO add little about yourself for the ones that are newbies or haven't swapped with us before :-) I like making Friends as well as getting plants and seeds! Yeah its a two for one. LOL

OK I will start....

Hi I am Tammy... I am NOT addicted to swapping although everyone around me seems to THINK I am. I have two of the best kids in the whole world and a wonderful husband who does enable my addiction (Although at times I am sure at times it truely tries his patients) My passion are flowers and cooking. So this year I decieded to merge the two and do a Large veggie garden also. Normally I only plant a small one with some tomatoes and cukes with the occasional squash.

I normally participate in seed swaps during the winter/fall because I sooo miss my plants and do plant swaps during the summer but occasionally swap summer seeds also. Like now.

OK some seeds I would LOVE to get into my collection

Cardinal Flower (not vine)
Coral Bells
Painted Daisy
Red Clematis Vine
Red Romaine Lettuce
Red coneflowers (I believe these will not come true from seeds saved so if anyone has any leftovers from purchase I would be sooo greatful

Okay, I feel bad now that I didn't let anyone post a wishlist for the yellow swap, but it was my first time to host a swap like that, and that just might have driven me over the edge, LOL! I commend you on your bravery, Tammy!

... and since you offered, here are a few reds that my garden is missing : )

Alonsoa meridionalis 'Red' (Maskflower)
Dianthus 'Sooty'
Echium russicum (red)
Eschscholzia californica 'Red Chief' (I have plenty of tall red poppies, but hoping for something short enough for the front of the border)
Gaillardia 'Red Plume' (annual)
Gazania 'Red Stripe'
Ipomopsis aggregata 'Scarlet Gilia'
Beans: Chinese Red Noodle, Red Peanut, Red Asparagus
Peppers: Lipstick (sweet pimento), Topepo Rosso
Any red bolt resistant lettuce, especially Romaine types.

A little about me:
Stay-at-home mom of three, two boys and a girl. My youngest starts preschool in a couple of weeks, and I'm both happy and sad about it, if you know what I mean.
My flower gardens are mostly reds, oranges, and yellows, so this swap is perfect for me. I also have a veggie garden and herb bed. When the snow starts flying and I can't garden, I start wintersowing, which I love!
Oh, and my entire garden is in full sun, plus I live at a high altitude, so not really looking for shade lovers.

Hello I am Fran aka ncgardengirl, I have been gardening for a while now. Many many moons, I enjoy it very much except for our hot hot dry summers.
I have a HUGE HUGE yard to fill with color whether it be from flowers or edibles I am not too picky I like most everything.
I do have grown children all boys and no gradchildren as of yet. I have 2 house dogs and 1 outside dogs who are now my babies and the house dogs are spoiled to the point the oldest one thinks she is people!

I participate in a lot of swaps ANY time of the year, but I like seeds swaps that catch my eye and this one did. I liked the black seed swap too but at the moment have nothing to share in that catagory!

My wishes would be:
Red Clematis (fresh seeds, I can't seem to grow them EVER)
Geum rivale
Canna
Clianthus-Glory Pea, Lobster Claw, Lobster-Claw, Parrotbeak
Yvonne's Salvia
Centranthus-Junitper's Beard
English Daisy
Bergenia
Hibiscus
Red Astilbe

These would be most welcomed! Thanks so very much.

:) Fran

Now, this is just too funny! I just finished putting together my rose garden, a mix of reds and pinks, and now I find out August is a Red month? How cool is that? Sign me up! I know I've got red seeds to share, I've just got to go collect all those rose seeds I saw on the bushes. And I know I've got a stash of seeds somewhere in this office of mine... hmmm, what did the cats do with it? LOL! This is going to be a good one!
I'm mailing you my info now Tammy.

Now see there! You get me excited, and I forget to follow the new rules! LOL! (actually, it's because Linda keeps giving me wine coolers and calling it kool-aid...lol) So, here's a bit of a wishlist, though I'm always happy to be surprised with something I haven't even thought of. I think it's just cool to be sharing our gardens with one another, don't you? Okay, before I forget, here's my "list"...
iris - alien mist, any others that are purple, blue, black, or red
Coneflower: yellow, red knee high, fatal attraction, summer sky, sundown, jade, green jewel, mac'n'cheese, tomato soup
amaryllis
tomatoes
hollyhocks
geraniums
foxglove
rudbeckia - cherry brandy (I planted seeds this year, but nothing grew... :( )
Plants for a Halloween-themed garden
roses
zinnias

And now, what to say about myself without writing a book? Let's see, I'll be 44 in September, I'm single, have 2 cats named Bump and Stella (maine coons) who are quite spoiled and think I make a wonderful pet, have been a mailman for 9 years, and love to garden. Also, I like to get on the radio with My Tunes whenever I can. (to find out more about that, go to www.wklt.com ) Sometimes I'm known as the Serial Gardner because I killed my entire lawn last year so I could make my flower and vegetable gardens larger. What else? Oh, I know... I tend to be very quiet and shy (quit laughing Linda!), like to cook, and would become a professional beach bum if there were a paycheck involved. Anything else y'all want to know? Just ask!
Have a great night everyone!

Tammy, the black pussy willows did root out, and I've got them out at my parents' place until they get a bit bigger. My dad has a fenced-in area where he starts all of his fruit trees, protected from the deer and varmints, as he calls them...lol! So, there they are, growing happily, waiting until they're big enough to "get out on their own".
Now, I have a question for ya... where did you get that picture at the top?

S'cuse me. I look for this swap to be posted every month because I am hoping to see a couple of specific colors.
Is there going to be a white month? How about a camo (green, tan, brown, gray) or chocolate seed swap?
Just wondering....

Kmail hasn't been around at all in the months, he didn't participate in several swaps he signed up for.
I hope he is ok, I am kind of worried about him, he hasn't answered ANY emails either.
I would go ahead and schedule a backup for his spot just in case though so you can have someone ready to take over. I really do hope he is ok and comes back soon.

I think the color of the month is a great swap idea!!! BTW, I wish I had joined the purple swap....

I was wondering about Kamil myself. I hope he is alright also because he was always on here. I do know he lost his computer toward the end there and was only able to get on when he was at the library. He may just not have access to a pc right now. let me know if anyone hears anything.

Hi Tammy and everyone, how are you?
It's been a while I joined a RR swap --hosted by Fran---Hi Fran- Queen of RR, smile, great seeing you here, hope you're feeling well/ better. This looks like another fun swap.
Don't we all need more red-most popular color?

Went thru my yard earlier, here is what's blooming red now:

Sunflower -ab 5 in
Zinnia- dble, looks like Benary's
Zinnia- double, think "Peppermint" except unsure if this is their pattern --some flowers are yellow with red stripes and some solid red with the above... on the same plant
Salvia Coccinea "Lady in Red" , strong to withstand this weather, attracts hummers and butterflies,love the way it keeps flowering ...after cutting it down some ( Salvia Splendens has only few blooms left)
Jalapeno peppers
Mini Bell Peppers
Orn peppers -few kinds
Pentas- keep deadheading 'em but will save a few for seed, might take a while

I'd love seeds of these easy to grow plants, they'll bloom this year if planted soon, in my zone 9 ( near New Orleans)

Zinnia- "Big Red" Zinnia -small ball/ Thumbelina
Zinnia Swizzle " Cherry and Ivory"
Cosmos -Tetra Versailles Red
JMG- large red, red and white
Sunflower " The Joker", any large red

I've got an ugly backyard to cover now that landlord finally cut the big tree. Any suggestions on plants and vines that are fast growing, aside Cypress vine and MGs?

Forgot all about introduction with the trading on my mind, lol
Hi, in short now, more eventually as I can go at length once we start communicating.
I'm most and first of all, always a mom and graanie Bea- 3 grown children, 2 grandsons ( including a step-grandson ) and 3 kitties who are at times helping me navigate to the sites unknown. lol

Have fun and a good day,

Bea

Ever since I saw the "Red Bed" from "gottagarden" I have been obsessed with doing my own. Each year it gets a little better and I am looking forward to adding to my collection.

Thanks for hosting this.

I'd be interested in:

rudbeckia - cherry brandy
Clethra alnifolia 'Ruby Spice'-Sweet Pepperbush
Ipomopsis Rubra
Zinnia (any red)

Few minutes ago, after opening the door, I saw a hummingbird on the Red Salvia, another one zoomed in on it and chased it away. Then I opened the back window, hummer was on the pink Salvia...they are so cuuuuute.

I can't think right now of any amusing/ funny stories involving color RED, imagine some do?

Bea, the only story about the color red I have, is that the first summer after we moved into our new house, we had a dirt yard, and hummingbirds kept flying into the garage. We finally figured out it was the red handle on the garage door pull. My husband covered it with black electrical tape, so that one wouldn't get stuck in the garage. Now they visit the garden every day during the summer. Their favorite plants are the penstemons and agastache.

Tammy, my seeds went out this morning.

Very pretty lol.

I included enough postage so if there happens to be an extra stamp go ahead and keep it for your time, don't worry about sending it back to me!!!

Good morning all, not in a hurry so can stop to think a little more.
Amazing little gems those hummers, something how they got attracted to the red handle and Bonnie--good idea your hubby covered the handle. I wondered lately if hummers here had started a nest, as each year, in the big tree which is now gone, oh well, they'll just need to fly a few more feet to another tree, what's it to them...just think how they endure a long migration flight over Gulf of Mexico and all. Deserve a nice treatment here, Monarch butterflies too, try growing lots of red for them as well.
Like I wrote in a note with my seeds to you Tammy, I'd be happy with a few of my wishy/wanty seed choices, smile.
Just Cosmos Tetra Versailles red and large Red or even better Red and white JMGlory would do.

great day to all,

Bea

Great wishlist, Penny! I had to look up those Hmong Red cucumbers, never heard of that one before. Tammy, you can add that one to my wishlist too, LOL. BTW, I think I may have sent in a couple things that are on your list, Penny : )

Yeah!

(I notice we are getting a lot of the same seeds. There is a lot of RED FLAX - Anyone interested in a couple packs??)

I will list a couple more if there are excessive amounts so that I can make sure they will get used.

Tammy, you know I am really ok with anything you send me back. I would even take some of the flax seeds, although I have some, you know you can always through some in a large area needing to be filled LOL.

So whatever you need to send me back is fine.

OK. everyone the envies are all sorted and will be mailed out first thing monday.

A big thanks to all the ones that sent me seeds off my wish list. THANKS!

Also a thanks to Alana and Jaynie for the extras you sent in. It will help the ones that only sent 2 or 3 seed packets get back some nice seeds.

I am happy to say I got to fill a LOT of requests from the lists. There were one or two harder folks that I didn't get much off their list but I tried my best to find some things I thought you would enjoy. I truely hope everyone enjoys the seeds I have selected for each of you.

Tammy :-)
