Alphabet Swap

Posted by conniesc 5 (cschlimm@neo.rr.com) on

I though I would see if anyone is interested in doing a fun little swap while we wait for the bigger ones to start; Back to school and Patty’s What is one your want list. The idea is an alphabet game/swap. Using the common name, botanical name or the variety name.. how many letters in the alphabet do you have available to swap?

An example would be (A-Z)

A- Ascelpias- orange butterfly weed
B- ‘Black Barlow’ columbine
C- Cerinthe- purple wax
D- ‘Dwarf Spray’ Sunflower
E- ‘Earl Gray’ larkspur
F- ‘Francis Hoffman’ poppy (red)
G- ‘Giant Imperial’ Larkspur
H- HollyHock- charters double white
I- ‘Indian Summer’ Rudbeckia
J- ‘Junior’ Sunflower
K- Kiss Me Over the Garden gate- variegated
L- Love in a Puff
M- ‘Max Frei’ Cranesbill
N- Nicandra- variegated
O- Obedient Plant ‘Miss Manners’
P- Penstemon- Jingle bells
Q- HollyHock ‘Queeny Purple’
R- Red Glow 4 o’clock
S- Snow in Summer
T- ‘Tiger Eye’ Rudbeckia
U-
V- Verbascum- Milkshake
W- ‘Wild Thing’ SweetPea
X-
Y- Yucca
Z- Zebrina Malva

• Send as many of the letters as you can. Can you get all 26?

• You can also send in up to an additional 24 for just swapping. For a grand total of 50 unique packets of seeds. Please do not send doubles.

•For each letter you send in- you will receive a different seed packet for that letter.

•For each of the additional seed packets sent in – something different will be sent back to you.

•Flower, Vines and/or shrub seeds only No Veggies

•seeds must be sent in a bubble envelope that includes your GWname, return postage and a return address label. Please include a wishlist if you do not have one already on GW.

•Sign-ups will be until September 26th; Seeds need to be in the mail no later than October 10th

•If you would like to be included, please sign up in this thread and I will email you my address. If you do not have your email address exposed on GW you will need to email me directly.

RE: Alphabet Swap

Hi all! I am sending out my bubbler this morning.

I missed about 4 or 5 of the letters.

Can anyone tell me if they came up with X? and the only thing I could think of for Q is Queen of the Prairie, and my seeds aren't ready to be harvested.

Connie, this has been fun...and it really makes you think. Thanks for coming up with it.

RE: Alphabet Swap

It is very interesting to see what is coming in for each letter. So for for X we have Xeranthemum and xerosicyos.

RE: Alphabet Swap

I'm going to be standing by the Mailbox for the rest of the week. I can't wait to see what I received. Thank you so much for doing this swap it's been marvelous fun.


 o
RE: Alphabet Swap

All packages will be going back out into the mail this afternoon. A couple of notes:

anyone who sent in veggies- they will be returned to you.

some peope got very creative for some of the letters :)
for example yellow marigolds doesn't really qualify as a 'Y'. for these, I placed them in the 'extra' bin.

The letter X and Q. a majority of people sent in the same exact thing so instead of just sending you back a different package of the same thing I placed them in the extra bin substituting something from my stash.

PS In some packages I threw in some extra's. I am getting ready to do a huge remodel and needed to clean up!! :)

enjoy everyone


 o
RE: Alphabet Swap

Good luck with your remodel. I'm constantly in the middle of a project at my place either inside or out and although I love it, I also hate it.
