I'd like to join. I still have lots of fresh seed to share.
Willy we did a plant trade years ago. I think you sent me alstroemeria p. I don't remember what I sent you. I was wondering if it would be alright to make requests from other participants? And send seeds labeled for specific people? I just noticed that jensyen has some seeds I'd like and I have some seeds on their wishlist.

Willy, we are arranging a private trade so you don't need to deal with it.

Willy's swaps are the best! I think half the plants in my garden have come from seed obtained in these fall swaps.

I have just started collecting seed here but I should have lots to share by November. Please count me in - - thanks! Nancy

Willie,
I sent mine in today, I need to make room in refrigerator, LOL,
I did, however, forget to put postage in. I will get it to you before November 8th, I think I'm going to hold off as maybe my Asclepias psyocarpa will have seeded by then, I have six plants so I'll have more seed than I'll ever use.. I check gardenweb almost daily so I won't forget!

Leila,
Don't know if Willy got back to you. He wrote this in the intro: 2) You have plenty of time to gather seeds and send them in, they are not due in until November 8. If you still need a little more time, this is fine.
So, I think sending seeds this Monday would be fine.
Jen

This is Willy your host. If you are a little late in getting seeds in that is fine, just send them when you cant. If it looks like you wont have time until after Christmas, that is fine, you can join the New Years Swap which the seeds are not due until the end of January. I will be going on Vacation for a while around Thanksgiving, I am going to try to get some of the seed packets if not most out before I go. Thank you all for your participation and if you still would like to participate in a group swap, please sign up for the New Years Swap.. Have a blessed Thanksgiving

Willy, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I got a chance to get to your part of the world for the first time this year when DH had a short business trip there. NOLA is crazy, but I loved it - the whole French Quarter is a real trip. I did spend a good part of one day at City Park and the Botanical Garden, which is very nice.

Received my seeds! Willie, thanks so much for collecting them all for us.
It's funny whenever I think of you I remember the alstroemeria p. you sent me way back in ? Well it was before Katrina. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. I'm very fortunate to be spending mine with my whole family.
