2014 commercial seed swap.

Welcome to the 2014 Commercial Seed Swap...Please read all the rules carefully as some have changed from last year. I know there are a lot of rules but it helps to make this a nice swap.

Here are the rules:

1. COMMERCIAL SEEDS only (seeds that were purchased, not collected)

2. They must be seeds from 2012, 2013 or 2014

3. They cannot be dollar store type seeds (.29-.59.or .99 cent packages)

3a. There are no mixes allowed, zinnia, cosmos, bachelors buttons, marigolds and so on.....

4. In the original package is best but if that's not possible, please label where they were purchased, what year they are from and your screen name.

5..Please do not send seeds that are known to have a short shelf life.

5. There will be a 25 pack limit on VEGETABLE seeds this year. NO LIMIT ON FLOWER seeds. (I am doing this because I do not have a large personal stash of veggie seeds to fill in and make a great package for the veggie gardener)

6. No more than 3 packs of the same type of seed (please don't make 3 packets of the same seed with 5 seeds in each package) I have purchased seeds that come with only 10 seeds to a package and shared only 5 seeds of that, However, I have also had seeds sent in with 3 packages of 10 mixed marigold seeds. This is not fair.

7. If you send in all vegetable seeds, you will get back all vegetable seeds. I had a member send in all veggie seeds and request only flower seeds in return, this I cannot do. the same goes for flowers.

I mark what each member sent so if you send in 25 veggies and 10 flowers, you will get back 25 veggies and 10 flowers.

8. Seed amounts, this is always a challenge. If you ordered a package of seeds and it came with a thousand seeds, chances are it is meant to be planted in masses. Please keep that in mind when sending some to your fellow gardener.

8a. These are commercial seeds so know that you will not always get a full gw trade amount "25 seeds>. It could be you only get 5 seeds of a perennial geranium because it was purchased with 10 seeds to begin with.

9. I will be posting a separate thread titled Commercial seed swap wish lists only. I ask that you put your seed wish list here for easier matching up for me.

MAILING RULES:

Seeds must reach me by March,1st

Please put in a return mailing label along with your postage for the ride home.

Postage should be what it cost you to send plus a little extra. This can be cash or stamps. I prefer cash because I mail from the Post Office and can pay exact amount due. When I have stamps, I have to put an extra stamp on for .20 cents due. I don't like paying them extra....lol Any excess $$$ will be returned!

I do send seeds from my garden IF they are on your wish list. This is a gift and not counted towards my contribution to the swap.

Seeds will e returned to you no later than March,15th. This allows you time to plant your new bounty!

May I join?


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Hi all, Newbie here, I'm heading into year two with some commercial seeds (maybe 10-12 varieties). Would love to join, but am I too small fry?

I read the notes 2x (need clarification please) ..is there a minimum # of packets/varieties required?
Ex. I have organic greens, beans, chard, cucumber, broccoli, etc. How many seeds should make 1 packet?

Here is a link that might be useful: My seed stash


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Risingcreek, everyone is welcome to play in this swap!

Leann, There is a limit of 25 packages of vegetable seeds per person. There is no limit on flowers. As far as seed counts go, I am not a veggie gardener so I trust you will put what you think is a fair trade. Oh, and I have had players join with 5 packages of seeds, makes no difference to me!

Welcome to everyone that has joined!

Please drop me a line when you are ready to mail your seeds and I will send you address.

Have a great day!

Lisa

 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I would love to join in. But this is new to me and one question.

1- The seeds I send in - will all be replaced with different seeds?
2- I buy also of asian varieties of vegetables at the asian markets (packaged and imported from asia) or at http://www.evergreenseeds.com. So would these seeds be okay to send in?

Thanks,

Yumi

RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I would love to play. How fun! I'm a new gardener and want to try everything so this is a great way to send along some of my excess when I order too much (and to see what neat surprises I get back). Thanks!


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Hello all, I'm glad to see some new members joining in on the swap! Yumi, I am not a veggie gardener yet(every year I say I am going to but haven't )...lol but I don't see why your seeds shouldn't or wouldn't be allowed, so jump on in! I will be posting a game sometime in the am so check back daily. Lisa.


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I'm interested. I have bunches of vegetable seeds. To clarify, I'm allowed to send a maximum of 25 veggie packs, but unlimited flower packs right?

smithmal


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Zoemom, you will get one pack of seeds for every pack that you send in. If you send all veggies, you get all veggies back. If upu send 50/50 veg and flower you get 50/50 back...Its very simple and a lot of fun when your new package arrives with new seeds to try.


 o

Smithmal, Yes. That is how the swap works.

RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Welcome All!

Jasmine, I/m sorry. I answered your question through my phona and just realized that it never sent...Yes, I am still at the same address.

leann, I got your email but am unable to respond, your email is blocked....I will answer your questions here. I will accept 25 packets of veggie seeds, not more than 3 of them same veggie. This means if you have 4 types of beans you may send 3 packets of each of the 4 different types of beans. As far as where to purchase flower seeds to start trading with. The local stores will start putting out seed racks soon. I don't accept most of the types sold in those stores for this swap BUT they will fill your flower pots! I do have extra seeds from my garden that I will send you if you enclose extra postage and a note reminding me to send them back to you.

If any other newer gardeners would like some flower seeds to try, drop a note in your envie and I will send you some flower seeds from my garden.

Okay, lets play a little game. This is my internet hangman...lol Please pick 1 letter per day. I will fill in the blanks, you are free to guess the garden quote at any time. The winner will find an extra packet of seeds when they return home.

I'm working on my seed wish list for this swap this morning and trying to get it finished before I leave for the day. Looks like I can mark CHABAUD GIANT
ORANGE SHERBET off the list. I've gone Carnation Crazy the last couple of years.
Thank you! Thank you!

Good morning all,

Primrose, I hope everything works out. I'll see you next year!

Clay-lady- Welcome, I sent you an email with my mailing info.

I have peeked at the few wish lists that are posted and already have some matches!

I'm looking forward to the seeds sorting madness, winter is just so boring!!

Lisa


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I've been going through my seeds and getting my package ready... so excited! Do we need to post our wishlist anywhere special for the swap or are you just looking at our lists on our profiles?

Thanks! This will be so fun.


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

blunder, there is a separate thread in the round robin section for wish list only. Please post your wish thisthere.


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

It's been snowing here in MA. For most of the day. I figured I would start prepping for the swap.....and it begin


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

So organized... I love it! Thanks for posting this pic. How many people have signed-up?


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Fabulous! What a great system. Was wondering how you organized this swap. Great job!


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Do we need to send in only seeds that are on someones wishlist?


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

No Suzanne! It would be great if they all were though! The sorting And turn around on a wish list swap(not wlomwl) is about a day! I did a garden genie grant me a wish swap once. The rules were send in off wish lists but you only got what was sent in for you so you could have given 50 and only got back 10 .,....It worked out great and literally took 5 minutes to drop seeds into people bubbler! ANN, it looks great in the beginning with just bags lined up and wish list attached. Lol. I will post then process later. Lisa


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I'll post how I organize and sort everyones package, for those who want to know while dinner finishes cooking.

I start out making paper bags with each players name and a copy of their wish list...This is done as soon as I have one to print. As each person posts a wish list, I look through and pull any/all seeds that I have in my stash to fit the bill. They are crossed of wish list and written on the bag. This makes it so I can just glance at bags and not have to handle all the little seed packages later when other players send in their seeds.

As each player sends in their packages of seeds, they are opened, counted and recorded how many flower,veggies and postage was enclosed. I then enter them 1 by 1 using the control f button in the wish list thread, this searches lists for me. When I find a match, in the bag of the player that wants it, it goes!! Any seeds that don't match up to a wish list are put into gallon sized zip lock bags alphabetically "for easier searching later>.

When all packages have been received and plugged into the wish list search, I go back to the gallon size baggies. At this point, I have pretty much memorized everyones list..lol
I look at the lists more loosely at this point. I will see that some players have red, orange and yellow flowers or herbs/veggies-any listed and they get dropped into bags.

The next step is where it gets tricky. I take all the bags and count how many wishes are in each bag. If sally sent in 10 packages of seeds and there are 20 seed packets in her bag, I pull all her seeds and recheck the wish lists again for other matches. If I find something on susies wish list that is in sallys bag, it gets put into susies bag...make sense? I try to make it so EVERYONE gets at least some of their wants. However, I am limited to what I have in my own stash and what comes in from others.

I usually have a bunch of seeds left in zip locks at this point because I put in my own seeds in. I take the players bags that have enough postage and drop in extras that I THINK they may like . I usually do a newbie offer with some of the seeds and some I keep for nexts years swap.

They are taken to the post office with money/stamps paper clipped to the bubble envelope. They are weighed, postage put on and any excess put into envelope. then they are sealed and on their way home to you!

Lisa


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Does everyone have their wish list posted on the other thread? I'm going through my seeds today! ;) I'm going to send-in extra, commercial veggie seeds as a bonus gift.

By the time one is eighty, it is said, there is no longer a tug of war in the garden with the May flowers hauling like mad against the claims of the other months. All is at last in balance and all is serene. The gardener is usually dead, of course. ~Henry Mitchell, The Essential Earthman, 1981

 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Loves blooms, there is no need for you to wait for wish lists, this is not a wish list swap. The seeds you send should be your extras, I ask for a wish list so I can TRY and match others extras to others wants.

I have been playing with seeds a bit "my own stash>. I have pulled seeds for every person that has a wish list posted..

I'm going to ask that everyone have a wish list posted by the 14th of February. This will allow me time to go through my seeds before ALL the seed packages come in.

Drippy, I sent you an email. There is plenty of time to join

I got a box of seeds from Naturegirl, some will be used as extras "per her request>. If you get a package of mixed anything from your wish list, it was a gift from her! She also sent in lots of veg seeds to be shared.

I would love to join this swap!
I waited to join because I wasn't sure if all of my seed orders would be here in time.

Hello,

I thought I would pop on and mention that if you add any seeds to your wants list please let me know so that I can print a new one!

Drippy, Sorry to hear that you can't join us!

Shirley, it's not a big deal, you have plenty of time.

RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Hi, Lisa,

I did add a couple of items a few days after I posted my wish list--sorry. I forgot you print out lists too.


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I was just checking some more of my seeds against wish lists. I buy and traded for comm. Veg seeds BUT I know nothing about them. I see that some people are writing things like for containers or indoor growing....please if you have a moment add in some specific names of ones you may like.Clay lady, I opened your package of seeds, there are flower mixes and .89 cent packages. These are not allowed in the swap. I'm sorry, you must have missed that in the rules. I will return them with your package. Lisa


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I added one thing (Akebia quinata) to my list.


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Hi, Lisa,

Sorry about the unclear lists! I went in and updated to be a bit more specific and added blue sweet woodruff and linaria to my list.

Thanks

Hi Lisa -- I will be mailing my (25) vegetable seed packets in tomorrow's mail. Thanks for hosting this swap!


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Loves blooms, no need to apologize. I'm sorry I don't know veggies better. Foreverrecycle, I will post when it arrives. I have sorted all the seeds I can, the seeds on the bed are seeds that were sent in that have not found homes yet :( Lisa


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

So organized... I just love it! Really good job, Lisa. :)

RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

SJC, I got your seed package today...Thank you for the 7 packets of donated veg seeds. I'll try and send you a few flower packets from my personal stash!

Pan_handle, Did you receive our trade? I should mention to the group that Sherri was going to donate about 20 packets of veg. seeds. We worked out a side trade, my flowers for her veg seeds, so I have a larger stash of veg seeds. I just wanted to mention it so people in the swap don't think I am playing games with other peoples seeds!

RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

Good morning All,

I got two packages of seeds in yesterdays mail.

Hibiscusfan- Thank you for the extra veggie seeds, I will spread them out to those who sent extra postage. I'm sorry but several of your flower packets are mixes and cannot be accepted. I will send them back in your return envelope. Thank you for offering to keep the change.lol, but it will be returned with your package.

foreverrecycle- nice job packing your seeds! I did the same this year with most of my own but I only printed the back for the date and growing instructions.

I have been checking the wish list thread and see that many of you have not posted a wish list. It is not a requirement BUT without one, I have no idea what to send. I can try and wing it with a flower person based on what they sent in but don't know enough about veggies to feel comfortable doing that.

Let's play a game.

How about we try and guess how many seed packets have come in to swap so far...

One guess per person, per day. The prize will be seeds of course.

Lisa


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I'll guess 349 packs, Lisa. :)

I think I added a couple veggies to my "want list". I'm going to look it over again this morning. Thank you!

Welcome Billings,

Email me for an address when you are ready to mail out your package :)

Lisa


 o
RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I'll guess 1050... or thereabouts.

Um, I also updated my wish list (it's outside influence, I assure you!). But I actually took some things off (not that I mind receiving them, but they're not a priority and I have only a limited number of flower seeds to send in). I added petunias.

Just trying to be practical--as difficult as that is!

RE: 2014 commercial seed swap.

I'm looking for the exact number! I'm not playing around here...haha

This is round 1 of the game. The winner will hopefully get a packet of seeds from their WISH list!

I will then extend the game out a bit by adding in my own seeds for a total count. I am only counting seeds that have been sent in at this point. This will be another prize.
