NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

This swap is for COMMERCIAL SEEDS ONLY, and the packs must be seeds from 2008,2009 0r 2010 season ONLY !!
Since this is commercial seeds only, you will get a small amount of seeds, but it will allow you to try some of the newer varieties of seeds.

DO NOT send the 10 cent pack of seeds from Walmart or 25 cent packs from the dollar general. We want this to be a fair swap, and most people will be sending in seeds that arent very common.... and are a bit expensive.If these types are sent they will not count towards your total number sent in.

NO MORE then 3 packs of the same seed ex. 3 packs of green envy zinnia, 3 packs of peppermint stick zinnia...etc

DO NOT post what you are sending.....just pack them up and send them to me, they will be sorted, and remailed out..this is a "surprise" swap !!

DO TELL me if you are interested in herbs, veggies, or flowers. (any combination of them)

I'd like to have the mailing date March 5th, so that we can still have time to sow the seeds. ( last season we were later)

I would prefer the seeds be sent in the original package, but if it is neccessary to put them in a new envie, they must have name of seed, year, and company they are from...and any growing info you can share !!

PLEASE email me if you have any questions !

( There is no minimum on the number of packs you can send)

Thanks, and I hope you will decide to join !!(sign ups will be till Feb 26th). The seeds should be mailed to me by the first week in March and I will sort and send back as soon as all the envies arrive. I should be able to mail back March,7th If all envies arrive on time.

I sent you an e-mail with questions - thanks!


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

OK, so Lisa asked me to go ahead and post here, to see what everyone thinks:

I have mostly veggie seeds, not many flowers and herbs at all. Would anyone be interested in that, or are you guys mostly flower people?

Thanks

Hi,

I would love to join!

Thanks, Amy


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

I think ALL commercial seeds belong in this swap!


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Sign me up, please. I have not done this swap before - about how many seeds do you expect in a package?

RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Hello All!

I haven't got a problem with veggie seeds being sent in as long as everyone doesn't mind getting some veggie seeds back in return. I am trying a few veggies myself this year.

AS far as seed counts, I would say that you should send in what you wouldn't mind receiving. I'll give an example, I have agastache purple pygmy seeds, they came in a packet of 10, I will keep 5 and share 5. It's enough to start a small patch and may take a most wanted off someones wish list! In most cases I will send 15-25 seeds but the packets that only come 10 or 20 seeds, I would send half.

I hope this helps.

Lisa

Kristi


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Thanks for joining everyone!

I think I have emailed my addy to everyone, if you haven't gotten an email please let me know.

Feel free to send the seeds as soon as they are ready, it will make packing them up easier.

I will be peeking at wants lists as I pack the envies for people so please try to have a few wants on there for me to try and match up for you.

Lisa

I got an email asking about $$ for the return envy, I don't mind stamps or $$. I have and will send back any overage of postage to you in your return envy. If you would like a conf# for the ride home please include an additional .80 (i think this is the rate now)

veggi seeds

I'm not interested in veggi seeds, I have a ton already. But others may be interested.
Denise


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

You mention there is no minimum number of packs. How about a maximum? How many do you expect most people will be sending? I may be interested in the swap...gotta check my seed stash first, though.


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Hi Lisa.....thanks for taking over my swap..it would of been nice to have been contacted first !!

I hope everyone enjoys the swap, it is a fun one !


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Hi Naturegirl,

There is no minimun or maximum.

Kym,

I'm sorry if your offened, I originally thought that miceyrey hostessed this swap and waited a few days after someone posted about it taking off or not. Poisondart gave me a link to last years rules and when I saw that it was you that was hostess I thought it wouldn't be a go for sure! I haven't seen you on the gw in a while and saw somewhere that you wouldn't be winter sowing this year. I probabaly should have contacted you by email but I assumed "you know what they say about assuming>that you didn't want to do it again this year. Again, I apologize and if you would like to take it over, feel free to do so. It really makes no difference to me.

Lisa


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Hi Lisa,

Please sign me up for this swap and thanks very much for coordinating it. Please email your address to me...I'm looking forward to participating!

LisaM627


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Too bad about the mix up. I assumed (there's that word again) that Kym had either not responded to inquiries or had responded to Janine in the negative.
I am in whoever hostesses the swap. I would prefer to receive ornamentals rather than vegetables, but there are probably folks who would request the opposite.
Looking forward to it,
Alana


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Hi Lisa,

I haven't rec'd an email with your address info. Has it been decided yet tho who is hosting?

Either way I think you're both great! :) I am in whoever is hosting as well.

I would prefer more flowers vs. veggies, altho I do have some specific veggies I was looking for. I'll just include them on the list and if they show up, wonderful!

Hugs,
Wendy / sassyb.

RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

sapphires3, did you get my email about your SASBE? Some have been having problems with GW mail. If you need my address lmk.
Denise


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Hello Everyone,

I talked with Kym via private email. I originally thought that she was upset but she states me that she's not, she would have just liked an email first... shame, shame on me! I will not assume in the future when it comes to swaps.

However, the swap will stay with me, soooo get packing girls!

I have 81 left over 1/2 to 1/3 packets from my 08 and 09 perennial sowing. I don't think I'll be able to include many annuals as I can't sow them yet. If I feel well, I may split the packs, I'll see what happens.

Have a great night ALL!

Lisa


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Mine will be off to you in tomorrows mail. I will be out of town until Sunday. Off to some sunnier weather!
Kristi


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

I will get mine together this weekend and get them out to you by Monday.
Alana


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Kristi, LUCKY YOU! I hope that you have a great time!

Sign-ups close tomorrow so if anyone is out there lurking, join now.

I have my seeds all packed up and ready to go, some are not in the original package because I split them into 2 packs of 20-25 seeds. I hope noone minds! I also have 7 or 8 packages from 07 and will include them but WILL NOT give myself credit towards them,they will be added as extras and hopefully will not be wasted.

Have a great day!
Lisa

RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Kristi

Mine are in the mailbox.


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

I've sent mine today as well.


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

WHOO HOO....seeds are on the way!

Funny how the thought of growing out a little flower seed can make a gardener grin from ear to ear. I have mine all packed up and ready to go so as soon as all the envies are here they can be sorted and mailed back.

Lisa


 o
RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

My plans for the weekend were derailed and I did not have time to package and send on Monday as I had anticipated. I have them ready and will drop them at the PO later today.

RE: NEW: Commercial Leftover seed swap..

Denise, I'm sorry that you had to drop out, maybe next time!

I got packages today from the following people:

Jaynine
Suecrinish
gardenscout

We have a great selection of seeds already!

Jaynine, I think that you have more to add to the swap than I do!!

I"ll be checking lists as seeds come in, I hope want lists are current.

If I have a seed from my garden that is on your list, I will add it to you package as an extra, not to be counted toward the swap.

Have a great night
Lisa

Have a wonderful swap everyone!
