new: ~fall seed round robin~

I would love to host a FALL Seed Robin.. I have plenty of seeds to share, plus have received so many in trades (robin boxes) that I can't use. Who's interested? Please post here.
Also, let's include some small 'gifts' (just to add to the fun). I'll include a seperate large ziplock bag for these items, plus a ziplock for the seeds (largest size-gallon). Gifts should be small, votives/candles, lotions, gloves, soaps, notepads, permanent markers, plant spikes, decorative things to put in pots, macrame hangers, plant markers, suncatchers, windchimes, anything really-homemade or store purchased.
Please take out whatever you want, but be thoughtful and replace with the same amount or more.

I'll use a flat-rate priority box (to keep costs reasonable). Please post when you receive the box, and when it's going out. And use delivery confirmation. I don't want the box to disappear.

Start going through your seeds...and collecting more! ;)The box will start it's flight on Sept. 4th. (MONDAY).

I'll post the flight list the last week of August (28th-Monday). This will give plenty of time to sign up, plus collect seeds, go through what you have.

Let the fun begin~


Thanks so much!
Deb

I would very much like to join! Please count me in.

(just a note: Monday Sept 4th is Labor Day so I assume it will start on the 5th? :)


 o
RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

I have read the faq but not sure still how rr works

Do we all send the seed packets to the host and the full box travels around to all the paticipants, or does the box arrive, and you pick out how ever many packets you want, and replace with the same number?

If the later is the case who fills the box so the first person has something to pick?

Or does each person send starter seeds (like 5 packets) to fill the box and then add more when the box arrives? Like if the sent 5 packs to the host, and the package arrives, and they like 10 packs they add 5 more to make up the difference.

Sorry if dumb questions, I just could not figure it out.

and what if you don't see anything you like?

RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

Hey Deb,

I would love to play, if it is possible for me to be put near the front of the list? Since we are moving out-of-state in October. If so, count me in!

~Summer


 o
RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

Summer,
I'll put you down first, since your moving.

Brenda,
You'll be lower on the list.

As for questions...
The Round Robin box of seeds (and gifts) will go from person to person, with you picking out whatever you want from the box- but replacing it with equal or more items.

In answer to the question, 'What if you don't like any of the seed varieties.' I'm not really sure what to say- we all take chances when we sign up for a robin. I worked on it today for two hours (gathering seeds, labeling them), going through several seed baskets. I keep all my seeds in baskets, much cuter than boxes. ;)
I found TONS of seeds, many 'rare' and of course, some common. But, what's common to me, might be rare to you, LOL! I added enough gifts, plus seeds to make this a very FAT robin, and it didn't even start yet!
Plus, others will have seeds to add, so the box will be constantly changing, and growing!

Tuesday Sept. 5th is the robin's day to fly.. I forgot about the 4th.

RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

Hi Deb, I'd like to join IF we can keep the size to a flat rate priority box. Sometimes when gifts are included we get carried away and the box gets bigger and bigger. Gifts are nice but the seeds should be the main thing. Not trying to be bossy with your Robin. Please accept this suggestion as it is intended.
Suggestion that if you are sending something specific as a hostess gift... send it direct and not in the robin box. This should help to limit the size.

 o
RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

Can I play? I'm looking for plum, purple, magenta or maroon jumbo zinnias....anything else is just gravy. I have a bunch of good seeds; I just hate typing out all the names for exchange & trades :)))

Oh, and are these all fall-blooming seeds, or are they any seeds we have left in the fall?

Lime


 o
RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

I would love to join but, I am severely chemically sensitive, so need to wait until someone starts a robin with no candles and other sented items. The other thing is this flowers only, or veggies, too. I did not see that stated?

do veggie/ herb only robins exist?

Are partial seed packets ok?

mary


 o
RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

Any and all seeds, as long as they are properly labeled- and not old. Veggies, herbs, flowers, houseplants. And yes, partial packages of seeds are ok, just make sure the seed pack is taped well.

I've done many robins with seeds/little gifts, and so far the priority (large) flatrate fits everything well. Because usually your taking items out-and then replacing.

Also, when your ready to join, send me your GW name, real name, address.

Thanks,
Deb


 o
RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

I do not know if the the priority box explanaton was meant for me, but that is not my concern. I am serverely allergic to any thing scented such as lotion, or candles, soaps, permanent markers, and personal care products. Plant spikes (fertilizer) are made of petro chemicals too. If the gifts did not contain that sort of thing, I would join. But I am sure you are not willing to change the rules for me. I will catch one next time no scented items are in the box. It all sounds like fun. I am looking at items in a gardening catalog I might get for the gift. Is there a price suggestion for the gift? I know asking too many questions since I can't do this robin, boo hoo

Mary

RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

Mary,
Sorry you unable to join. I'm sure someone will host a seed robin in the near future. I love the idea of seeds, little garden items, personal items (plant related or not) included in the robin.

The flat rate boxes are a bargain, you can pack them full for $8.10 plus .50 delivery confirmation (so the box doesn't get lost, and we can track it).

I worked on the box tonight again-adding more seed, and have it basically ready! I'm also drying more seed to add... "Black Krim" tomato, "Brandy Wine" tomato, "Golden Delicious" (the best yellow tomato, I've ever had), "Black Beauty" zucchini.
The box is going to contain a wide variety of seeds... Red Japanese Maple seeds, Yellow Japanese Oleander, Mexican Hat, "Rosie Lights clematis", Royal Empress Tree, streptocarpus "Bristol's Meow Meow", Malva, yellow Datura, Pink Foxglove, Pink Hollyhock, Mammoth Sunflowers, Snapdragon, Rose of Sharon, Chinese Forget me nots, Black Barlow Columbine, 4 O'clock fuschia, 4 O'clock yellow, Giant Sunflower, Liriope, Pride of Madeira, Joe Pye Weed, Yellow Foxglove, Chaste Tree, Pink Bee balm, Tall Zinnias, Viburnum (shrub), King Edward VII-Sweet Pea, regular Peas, Caladonian Orange -Mini Tree seeds, Snow Berry Bush (Symphorocarpos Albus), Lavender Datura, Fuschia Hollyhocks, Fireball bush, Cream colored Hybiscus, White Baby's breath, Trumpet Lily-white, Larkspur (blue), Giant eucalyptus aka.."Blue Gum", Mixed Hosta, Crimson Clover- 2 pkgs, white clematis, Straw flower-white, Nicandra, Lunaria Biennis (Money plant), Corn cockle-purple, Gilia Tricolor-Lilac, Jasmine, Laqteria Tree, Burgandy Maple tree, Foxglove, Alma P. Aster, Blanket Flower, White rose of Sharon, Swamp Milkweed, Foxglove (Shirley Hybrid mix), Nicotiana-bright pink, Latris-purple, Milkweed "Incarnata "Cinderella", Rose Campion "hot pink", Paprika yarrow, Rose balsam, yellow chamomile, Tulip popular, Hollyhocks-wine, Red paper poppy, Lavender rose of Sharon, Budeleia "Black Knight", Morning glory mix, "Heavenly blue" morning glory, Chickory-blue, Coreopsis "Plains", bee balm-purple, cardinal vine, Sapphire Dragon tree. Many, many seeds.. LOL.. Plus, I'm sure I'll add more.

Hey Deb I would love to join also...by the way I have a ton of magenta giant zinnia to put in for Lime. If you have something for a specific person is that o.k. I will put in extra packs for other people too. ;) Susan/giverny4me.

Miss Mary, you should start a chemically sensitive robin, I bet you could get quite a few people...just a thought.


 o
RE: new: ~fall seed round robin~

chemically sensitive robin, a cool idea. I may take you up on it.

I have very few seeds though, so I need to be creative to find a way to stock up the box. Maybe donations? I'll figure it out.

What happens to all the seeds left over when the box returns to the host? I am thinking a veggie/herb robin would interest me. I am not much into the exotic flowers. I do like the wild native sort though. Don't be surprised to see a robin started by me, one of these days.

I have a chemical sensitive web site. If anyone has mcs, there are lots of resources listed to help you out. The link is on my member page. I hope it is ok to mention this. I am not selling anything.

Oh Deb, that's exciting. I must admit I'm thankful to be near the begining. One of the many reasons I seldom do RR's is that I have the patience of a gnat. LOL

The robin went out today! Summer, it's on the way! USPS tracking 0305 0830 0004 1527 2202.

This swap is closed, sorry to those who signed up here, but information never made it to my personal email. The robin is only going to those on the previous list. If you sent your message/information through the garden web, it never made it to me.

I'll post a new thread- "Fall Seed Robin's Flight Path"

See you there! Post all new messages on the new thread.
