Welcome Everyone!
Everybody has Been Sent My Address for Mailing.
Also...Please Everyone...S
end Your Seeds in a Bubble Mailer or a Padded Manilla Envelope for the Seeds Safe Arrival.

Diene...
That Would be Fine.
The Whole Point is to Share Alot of Different Varieties with a lot of Traders.
And Remember Hollyhocks Cross Easily so...
The Variety of Colors Will be Spectacular.

colcol...
Your Black Current Swirls Should be Ready by the End of October.
Seed Starts Setting from the Bottom to the Top of the Plant so...
Watch the Bottom First Blooms...They Set Seed Quickly but...Wait Until the Outside Husk Starts to Change to a Pale Light Green Turning to a Tan Color and the Husk Will Begin to Open.
Once the Seed Husk has Turned CompletelyTan the Seeds Will Start Falling Out.

They are predicting an early freeze here. I just went out and looked at my HH. They aren't even close, so I had a heart to heart talk with them to hurry up! HA! Also, about HH cross easily -- my Black Currant Whirl and Creme de cassis are right next to each other and all the time there are huge beautiful bumblebees on them! So, those I expect will be crosses.

Diene, I imagine there are others like me who don't have any cream colored :) and there are different shades of burgendy...

looking forward to this trade.

At this Point...You Will Receive as Many Different Colors/Varieties as I Receive in Return.
If You Send in 10 Packets...You Will More than Likely Receive Back 10 Different Colors or Varieties of Hollyhock.

Lots of Sign-Ups are Coming in.
Lots of Packages with Lots of Colors and Varieties are Starting to Come in also.

Just Remember...
All Packets Need to be Mailed by Monday, November 2nd.

Thank You to All of You Who are Out There Packaging Hollyhock Seeds.

I mailed my seeds today but I realized that they were going to have to travel across the entire country so I do not know how long that will take. Hopefully they will make it in time but I only had two colors to send so do not worry if they do not arrive in time.

I sent Lelan an email about a week ago and have heard nothing in return. I too am still waiting for my Hollyhock package. I am hoping it is only being delayed because of the holiday. I love Hollyhocks and joined this swap because of that. Hoping Lelan will clue us in as to what is up.
