RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

I have only two colors, a deep burgundy and a light cream with a yellow eye. Can I send five packs of each and get some different colors back? I do not need as many packets back as I send but I would love one some other colors. Let me know. diene

RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

Welcome Everyone!
Everybody has Been Sent My Address for Mailing.
Also...Please Everyone...S
end Your Seeds in a Bubble Mailer or a Padded Manilla Envelope for the Seeds Safe Arrival.

Diene...
That Would be Fine.
The Whole Point is to Share Alot of Different Varieties with a lot of Traders.
And Remember Hollyhocks Cross Easily so...
The Variety of Colors Will be Spectacular.

colcol...
Your Black Current Swirls Should be Ready by the End of October.
Seed Starts Setting from the Bottom to the Top of the Plant so...
Watch the Bottom First Blooms...They Set Seed Quickly but...Wait Until the Outside Husk Starts to Change to a Pale Light Green Turning to a Tan Color and the Husk Will Begin to Open.
Once the Seed Husk has Turned CompletelyTan the Seeds Will Start Falling Out.

RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

They are predicting an early freeze here. I just went out and looked at my HH. They aren't even close, so I had a heart to heart talk with them to hurry up! HA! Also, about HH cross easily -- my Black Currant Whirl and Creme de cassis are right next to each other and all the time there are huge beautiful bumblebees on them! So, those I expect will be crosses.

Diene, I imagine there are others like me who don't have any cream colored :) and there are different shades of burgendy...

looking forward to this trade.


 o
RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

Answer to Perennialfan 273.

Perennialfan273...
You Can Send in as Many or as Few Hollyhock Packets as You Like. The Starting Mailing Postage is an Average as I am Seeing 84-88Cents Per Mailer.
At this Point...You Will Receive as Many Different Colors/Varieties as I Receive in Return.
If You Send in 10 Packets...You Will More than Likely Receive Back 10 Different Colors or Varieties of Hollyhock.

Lots of Sign-Ups are Coming in.
Lots of Packages with Lots of Colors and Varieties are Starting to Come in also.

Just Remember...
All Packets Need to be Mailed by Monday, November 2nd.

Thank You to All of You Who are Out There Packaging Hollyhock Seeds.

RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

I Have had a Few Individuals Who are Sending Hollyhock Seeds Who Have Been Sick this Last Week so...

I am Extending Mailing in Your Seeds Until Monday November 9th (Period...No Later).

I Have Everything Divided by Individual Colors.
and...Lists All Taped on Each Persons Individual Mailer
So Now All I Have to do is Look at Each List and Divide Up the Various Colored Seeds...That is Why I Added the Additional Week for Mailing.
The Largest Amount of Work is Completed.
So if You Wish to Send in Your Hollyhock Seed...Please Do this By Monday November 9th.

I Hate to See Anyone Miss Out on the Colors or Varieties Sent in.
If You Need My Address Just Send Me an E-Mail.


 o
RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

I mailed my seeds today but I realized that they were going to have to travel across the entire country so I do not know how long that will take. Hopefully they will make it in time but I only had two colors to send so do not worry if they do not arrive in time.

RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

Not a problem! Thank you for doing all the work for us! Looking forward to my package! Melinda


 o
RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

It has been over a week and I have not received my package yet :( I was curious if I have a problem. did anyone receive theirs?


 o
RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

I was wondering the same thing! Probably just due to the holiday season that everything is taking so long!
Very anxiously awaiting my package! Melinda


 o
RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

IF they were mailed on the 30th, it's certainly odd that NOONE has received one.


 o
RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

I sent Lelan an email about a week ago and have heard nothing in return. I too am still waiting for my Hollyhock package. I am hoping it is only being delayed because of the holiday. I love Hollyhocks and joined this swap because of that. Hoping Lelan will clue us in as to what is up.


 o
RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

I have been concerned about my package too as I have not received it yet. I have emailed Lelan...so hopefully I will hear something soon. I hope he is OK and nothing is wrong!

it would appear that some postal employee hocked the hollyhock packages.

:(

RE: Hollyhock Seed Only Swap/Trade

If anyone has any updates on Lelan and when we may be getting our Hollyhock seeds please post! Lelan, if you could personally update us we would all really appreciate it. We all are still waiting for Hollyhock seeds to arrive.
