TREES: large collection for sase

Posted by smithseeds 2 (My Page) on

Still emptying the seed room...I have lots of different types of TREES for SASE ... from Green Ash to Foxglove tree. If there are any other garden seeds I can send, please send a note. I also have TREES, SHRUBS, COLD HARDY, HEIRLOOM, ANNUALS PERENNIALS, FRUIT, VEG, HERBS.

SASE: Please send a larger envelope sent with $2.30 in Canadian stamps. (I have had the odd person send one .52 cent stamp...sorry, don't want to pay for people's postage - letter will be returned to sender). I have had the experience that if a small envelope is sent, it will not fit through the mail slot size and you will be COD'd parcel rate which is around $6.50.

FEEDBACK: For anyone who has received seeds from me already, feel free to post the different varieties you received, if you wish.

SEED LISTS: With everything on the go, I don't have a seed list that I can maintain. When the seeds are gone, they are gone.

CONTACT: Please email me directly at smithsatthelake@ as I don't check the GW forum on a regular basis.

Hello there,
Its really nice of you to offer lots of free seeds. Considering every tree you plant will contribute saving this planet from global warming, I would like to grow trees and encourage others to do their share. I have mailed you a SASE today and thanks a lot for your time and efforts!!!

RE: TREES: large collection for sase

does anyone know how to get in touch with these folks? I have emailed their hotmail account twice and haven't heard from them... any ideas? I would love to send them an SASBE but no address....

RE: TREES: large collection for sase

I sent my SASBE with $2 postage inside in January. Haven't got anything yet. I don't know what to think. The envelope should have returned back with seeds or no seeds, but I haven't heard anything from Smith yet.

RE: TREES: large collection for sase

Hi Mariana..sorry you haven't been getting a response. I sent postage in February and got a whack of seeds. (Willy did too by the accounts here). Maybe you're envelope got lost (or stolen). A postal worker got charged last week for stealing mail at the airport.
I know smithseeds is renovating per his first offer. Maybe his computer is down for a while.
Hope things work out for you.

RE: TREES: large collection for sase

My envelope must have been lost in transit. After I posted here I noticed more people got the package seeds from Smith. Sorry Smith, thanks Wendy.

RE: TREES: large collection for sase

A huge thank you to Smith Seeds for their generosity! I received a huge package of seeds from them today!

Thanks Again!

RE: TREES: large collection for sase

I received a huge package of seeds a few days ago....many different and interesting things! Looking forward to trying all the new stuff!

Thanks so much for the generous offer!


RE: TREES: large collection for sase

My seeds arrived in the mail yesterday, and all I can say is WOW!!! The package was literally bursting at the seams!
I can't wait to get these started!
Thanks so much for the generous offer, it is very much appreciated!
