NEW: Christmas Exchange

wi_garden(4)November 4, 2006

How about a 2006 Christmas seed swap?

To join the fun, post a message here in this forum and email me for my mailing address. Please title your email something like "Christmas Seed Swap".

There are not really any rules but please include the following.

Please put about 15 seeds or more per packet. No more than 3 packs of the same kind, 10-15 packets total.

a. Put your GardenWeb name on the seed packets.

b. Include the name of the plant both common and latin if you know both.

c. The sun and water requirements.

d. Zone hardiness information.

e. Annual, Biannual, Perennial.

f. You can also include any other information you have or feel like sharing.

Please put your 10-15 seed packets in a padded envelope.

a. Include an extra padded envelope that is addressed to yourself and includes the same amount of postage that you put on the outside envelope for me to send your seeds back.

b. Include a Christmas wish list that has 3-5 seeds you would like to have the most. I will try to fulfill at least one of everyone's wishes, depending on the seeds that are in the swap. If you would like to be totally surprised, you can skip the Christmas list. Please print your name, address and gardenweb name on the top of your Christmas list.

c. Include a list of all the seeds you are sending.

d. Small Christmas gifts and bonus packets are optional; I will try to include something of the season with every envelope. If you would like to include "bonus" packets please put "bonus" on them. If you are sending Fruit or Veggie seeds, maybe you could include you favorite recipes with them!

I will post to this forum when I receive your packets of seeds in the mail. I will take packets until December 4th. I will try to get your Christmas packages out by December 18th.

As soon as all the seeds are in, allow me about a week or two to get it all sorted. I will post to this forum when the packages are sent.

Please include an extra stamp for bonus packets, if possible.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me when you email me for my address.

I hope to hear from you all.

Thanks, Jim

I'm interested in joining.

Do we have to send two bubble envelopes, can't we send a SAS bubble envelope inside a large mailing envelope (the seeds we're sending in will be protected by the inside bubble envelope)?

I just want to do the exchange right. Thanks.

There is no need for 2 envelopes. Just postage both ways. Thanks for joining our group!

Gardeners,
Today, I got all of your gift packages in the mail to you! My wife and I tried our best to fulfill your wishes if you enclosed one to me. It was tough trying to make wishes come true. I gave up some of my seeds to try to make some of you happy.

The wife and I tried to give back the same amount of seeds that each person gave. We also exchanged gifts to those of you who gave a gift. If you didn't give a gift, you didn't get one except a homemade card.

My wife enclosed a homemade stamped card for everyone to enjoy and use later. I enjoyed hosting this exchange. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy all of your new seeds. Furthermore, from our home to yours...

We wish you a Merry Christmas.

Jim
