Wonderful!Trader and very generous.Highly recommend.

RE: dem_pa

I second that. :-D
Thanks for trading with me. :-)

RE: dem_pa

He adopted me when I was a newbie and I was so moved by his generosity. He is very personable, as well. My sons know him as the 'tootsie roll guy'. When my brother was dying, he sent me a care package that was here when I got home from the hospital. I will forever be grateful. My only complaint is that he does not have a wanted list so that I can adequately repay him. Thanks a million dem_pa!
PS> Please update your wanted list. ;-) LizinNH

RE: dem_pa

Same here. Dem was my first trade on GW. He was very patient and kind and sent me a seed package bulging with seed too! He was a very good example for me and started me off on the right foot. :-)

Don is one of the most generous traders I know. For the butterfly swap he sent a huge package of seeds all very nicely packaged and with ID pictures on each one. What a LOT of work.
Top notch, Five Stars to Don

RE: dem_pa

Don has just generously shared his African Voilets with me! I am so excited to get started on this new obsession of mine! With this lovely and amazing package of named plants and leaves, he has started me well on my way. This box arrived so quickly too!
Don, please post a wish list so maybe sometime one of us can repay your kindness.
Thanks a million!!

Being a newbie I received an email from Don & he told me he'd send me the seeds I liked, I expected a pack of seeds and instead he sent me a b envelope packed full!! I don't think another pack would have fit into it!! What a generous man, I am going to have the best flowers in the neighborhood!! All packets were marked with all of the info I needed too. Hoefully next fall/spring I can send him some too.
