new! color of the month seed swap: purple!!!

The color of the month swap for July is PURPLE. In olden times, the color purple was only worn by royality. If non royals wore it, they could be put to death! Purple is one of my personal favorite colors, from the lighter hues to the deep jewel tones. Purple flowers will enrich your gardens too!

We will need at least 5 people to sign up for this swap to go forward. POST HERE if you would like to participate. After signing up here on this thread, please send me an e-mail with your full name & address and your GardenWeb name. I will send out my address after there are at least 5 responders.

DEADLINE FOR SIGNING UP: August 16

DEADLINE FOR SENDING SEEDS: August 23

You may include seeds that produce PURPLE flowers, foliage, fruits, or vegetables, or just have the word PURPLE in their names!

You may send flower seeds, vegetable/herb seeds, or a mix.
(Please specify what you would like back: edible, non-edibles, or a mix of both)
I will do my best to fill your request, but it all depends on what is sent in!

Absolutely NO Invasive Plants or Noxious Weeds!!!!
Please send seeds no older than 2 years old.

Please include on the packet label: the seed's name (be as specific as possible - for example, not just Gaillardia, but which one - Goblin, Burgundy, etc.), whether your seeds are from a commercial source or hand-collected, and the year stamped on the package if it's commercial seed, or the year harvested if it was hand collected.

The limit for all of the color swaps is 10 packs, but please feel free to send in extras. These will be counted as bonus packs and I will try to send bonuses back to those who send them in. You can send in as little as 1 pack of seeds, there is no minimum to send in.

Please send in the number of seeds that you would be comfortable receiving yourself depending on the variety. There should be a minimum of 10 seeds per pack.

Please send only 1 pack per variety. Again, you may send more than one pack of a certain variety, but please know that they will be counted as 'extras'. So each variety will be counted as one trade.

So let the sign ups begin! "blowing the royal trumpet"!

RE: new! color of the month seed swap: purple!!!

Is the swap still on? I emailed but have not gotten a mailing address, and the thread looks deserted...


 o
RE: new! color of the month seed swap: purple!!!

Silver cat I was wondering the same thing, although I mailed my seeds at the begining of the week..I was thinking since the seeds were not really due yet that, that might be the hold up...DUNNO.....All we can do is keep checking for new post..


 o
RE: new! color of the month seed swap: purple!!!

I do apologize to everyone...I usually run my swaps better than this. My daughter is about due and she gave us a little scare. This is my first grandchild and I'm a little paranoid!

Anyways,PLease don't forget to send return postage and return address label.

Lissa is the only one left and I'll send her an email. If I don't hear back from her, then I'll separate and send out everyone's.


 o
RE: new! color of the month seed swap: purple!!!

okay, I haven't heard anything back from Lissa so I figure she isn't going to send. I"ll be separating the seeds and be sending out the return envelopes by the end of the week.
