This is not a round robin, it's a one time swap.

FALL FLOWER FLING
Yes, its that time again, So here it is, my fall flower fling!!!
Flower seed swap-- Dead Line is: November 30,2007

I am hosting a flower seed swap. This includes flowers, shrubs, bushes and vines.

Send as many packets of seeds as you like: Send all of one kind, or all different kinds.

The number you send will be the number you get back: (example- you send 25 in you get 25 back)

Be SURE to add proper amount of shipping for returning your seeds. (send either a SASE with proper postage for mailing back your seeds-since you'll be sending the same amount as you get back then postage should run about the same both ways) OR (use the same envelope and just toss in correct amount of stamps & and an address label. I'll be happy to lick and stick'em for you.)

There will be no swapping until all packages are received. (Last time I did a swap the list topped 100 people. Let's aim for that again) I will let everyone know when all packages are received.

I do a "don't want list" So you list things you don't really want and I will try (no promises) to not send you anything on that list.

I also do a "want list" and I try to fill at least one (I try to do two) items off this list. (Please remember I am not the seed fairy)

Dates and dead lines: Swap starts NOW and all packages must be in by November 30, 2005

I am always ask what amount to send and how to send it, and what amount is a fair trade. SO.....to me a fair trade would be what I'd feel like getting back. I'm not a seed counting person. I use a tea spoon and put some in a bag. If it's a large seed just use good judgment, and please remember we are not all born with a green thumb and sometimes we need enough seeds to try again. (But if you must count let's say....20-25 seeds pre seed package for regular flowers, I'm sure all would agree you'd really have no need for 20-25 bushes or shrubs of the same seed)

Rules (guess we need some, so here goes)
1. Seeds must reach here by dead line (I say this every time but I'm very adjustable and will accept people on the list if they hurry right up to the dead line-but you must email me and tell me your seeds are on the way)

2. Seeds must be in individual packets (make you own, buy some, doesn't matter to me) and size of your bag is up to you.

3. Please try and put at least 20-25 seeds pre packet (bag). (I know sometimes it's hard to squeeze that many big seeds in a small packet, but please try.)

4. Be sure to add your (SASE ) or postage and label for return of your seeds.

5. Be sure your seeds are dry and in a good swapping condition, if you send seeds that get here moldy, crumbly, etc. you'll get those back.

6. Send any thing you like, a large assortment or all of one kind, doesn't matter to me. Just remember, if we all send in sunflowers, then we all get back sun flowers.

7. Yes, you can send as many as you like, 100, 200, 10, your choice. I haven't made mine up yet so I can't tell you how many I'll be swapping. I usually do at least 100. And yes, if you have time you can do a double swap. I had 3 people last year do a double set of 100 packages each last time. Just makes for more to please every one with. So....GO FOR IT!

I'm in... I'll be sending in *nearly* everything on my "haves" list, but when I do I'll leave the list on my trade page with notation that I sent it to *this* swap, sooo if by chance you want any of what I sent maybe let Belinda know so she can set them aside for you. I'll be peeking at y'all's lists too, just in case you send in some of what you have on your lists. ;-)

RE: NEW: big one time seed trade

just in case anyone has heard bad rumers about mmy swap I'll let you know what's going on

I have never hosted a swap in the spring, I did host one where someone sent in a ton of black iol sunflower seeds I didnt know that these were bird feed seeds. And I myself ended up with tons of them. Also that same year someone send in plain old wild morning glory seeds. This will not happen this year. If its sent in it will go back to who ever sent it. Plain and simple.

Also I skipped the swap last year because of health reasons and I had several deaths in the family and a lady I know ask could she host one since I did not plain to. I told her do what she wanted. She emailed this year and ask was I planning one I said yes, she jumped up and started one before I did mine, then shes gotten in trouble for several things and thrown off a gardening site (not even sure what all she did, but they will not allow large swaps now)

And this is who is spreading all this crap about me Ive been doing this for 6 years and have never had a complaint (until now)

every year for my swap I put alot of work into it, anyone who joins will get a think you note and stickers. I do this every for everyone of my swaps. Until now I have never said ahead of time you get this, but I do. I usually write a small note on each swap.


 o
RE: NEW: big one time seed trade

Hi Belinda,

I'm so sorry to hear about your bad year. I'm already in two other swaps that I'm saving seed for, but I think I will join this one too. There's a lot of good people in it, and I sure hope they don't get scared away.

Thanks for hosting, it is a lot of work.

Well, I missed all the gossip and was planning on signing up before so I will do so now. I'm trying to get all of my seeds dried and packaged now. I also ordered a few new things because I'm getting bored with the same old stuff. They don't give you lots to share but the poppy seeds I just ordered came with a lot of seeds so I get them into circulation :)

Hi Belinda -
I'm sorry, I'm so late. I have a package ready to go tomorrow but don't want to hold you up at all. Any chance you are running a little behind in case they don't touch down by the deadline?
shimla


 o
RE: NEW: big one time seed trade

Belinda,
I am getting mine in the mail to you tomorrow.

I can tell everyone that this is the second time I have done the swap with Belinda & was extremely pleased with the trades I got, & yes I got black oil sunflower seeds - but I can tell you that it was over & beyond the number of packs that I had sent in. You won't be sorry that you joined.

I don't see my seeds as being recieved! I mailed on the 17th, I'm beginning to think they went out via the pony express instead of the US mail. Sure hope they are there this week.

I got two today I haven't checked the names yet
I'll be gone this week end, hubby will be in (he's in every other week end) and when he's here he wants me off the computer. So...as soon as he's gone again I'll catch back up,


 o
RE: NEW: big one time seed trade

Dumb question - black oil SF seeds have come up a couple of times now. Do black oil sunflower seeds not grow sunflowers? I got some in a swap a while back with somebody I trust, and although I haven't planted them yet (I'm trying a few types at a time) seems like this would be one type the birds would love if it grows - so does it, or did my swapper not know either? Thanks for any info, and thanks again Belinda; enjoy your break from the PC. ;-)
Terri


 o
RE: NEW: big one time seed trade

Got my answers - thanks! I understand. I do things on a very small scale and learned (for me) to get them started as protected seedlings before planting out because something - birds, squirrels, saber-toothed worms, who knows what - was eating mine faster than they were growing too. Personally, if a seed is on my wish list, it could come from a box of crackerjacks as long as it has a chance of growing... I don't really care about its history. :-) Thanks for the responses!

But anyway, mail'em on in. and next week I'll have time to work on them. Hubby came in last night with all his dirty clothes for me to wash today, and I went by a gardening friends and she had 2 huge bags of plants for me today so I had to get those in the ground this morning.

Almost everyone is in, we're down to about 10 and some of those are in the mail.

Thanks

hummming, I have 50 on my list and I have had a few more at the last minute decide to hop in, I'll be starting the sorting tomorrow.

and might have some ready to mail out by wednesday, I mail as I finish, so when yours gets done, in the mail it goes. And this will be in no order what so ever, just be who's bag gets picked up first.
Belinda


 o
RE: NEW: big one time seed trade

just wanted to let everyone know I have been working on the seed sorting, and hopefully will start sending seeds back out next week, and they will leave here in no order what so ever, just will be who ever I work on that day.
