HAVE: Old time Garlic & multiplying onions for flower bulbs

I have garlic buttons and multiplying onion buttons to trade for perennial flowers or hardy flower bulbs. My mother in law gave me a start of these garlic about 35 years ago. They came to her from her mother in law. The multiplying onions came from my aunt and she has had them for many years. These "buttons" are from the "heads" that grow on top of the garlic and onions that I have to trade. You do not have to gather them and replant them each year. They will come back thicker each year if you allow them to drop off the plant. Please let me know what you have to trade.

It has been a long time since you posted that you had garlic and onions, but I'll take a chance. Mostly what I have to trade are seeds. Take a look for yourself. I also have paw paw seeds. I do have some veggies and lots of flower seeds. Please let me know if we can trade. THANKS!!

Organic Gardening Girl, are you still interested in a trade. The posts here did not go to my email and I didn't know you had posted. I only have the old time society garlic left. Please let me know.
