NEW: 3rd Annual- Named Variey / Rare / Unusual - Seed Exchange

Hi there!

I would like to welcome you to the 3rd Annual Rare/Named Variety seed exchange!
Carley had started this swap 2 years ago and had done a great job of hosting a very fun and rewarding exchange! I am sorry to say that she will not be able to host again this year. We will miss her- but we dont have to miss this great swap. I enjoyed this swap so much last year and would hate to see it go away- so- to keep this swap going again this year- I will do my best to carry on in her stead! I am new to hosting an exchange- but have been trained well by helping Lazyweeder in his "Wish List Swap" for a few years now.

This is an exchange for named variety, rare or unusual seeds whether they are annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, trees- any kind of seed will do- as long as it meets the criteria of named variety, rare or unusual seed.

Every one is welcome to join! This is not just for "Newbies" or "Old Hands"- it is for anyone wishing to participate!

You can send as many seed packs as you like- but only 5 packs of each specific seed. That way we can have a larger diversity of seeds to exchange. You will receive back as many packs as you sent in- and I will try to find a bonus from my seed stash for each of you!

If you are interested, please post below by November 4th. I will send you an E-Mail through your GW Page- with info you may need- and where to send your seeds.

Individually packaged and labeled trade ready seeds should be sent in a bubble mailer to me by November 11th with return postage equal to what it cost you to send, a list of things you would like or are interested in, or a copy of your want list from your trade page, what ever is easier- with your GW name on it. I will make every effort to fill your wants if the seeds are available! Maybe you could peek at others want lists and send a little something special their way... I hope to have all your new seeds back to you by Thanksgiving.

Just for clarification-
A named variety is a cultivar of a particular type of plant such as- Gaillardia Fanfare. Gaillardia is the name of the plant, and Fanfair is the variety. Another example would be - Black Eyed Susan - Rudbeckia hirta Prairie Sun. Rudbeckia hirta is the Latin name of the plant- Prairie Sun is the variety- Black Eyed Susan is the common name, hirta is not a variety name. The color of the plant is usually not the variety name.

I figure the general amount of seed in each packet should be close to 6-12 for large seeds, 24 or so for the usual size and a nice healthy pinch of the tiny seed. If you are feeling generous- go right ahead- and know that your seeds will be well appreciated! Generosity has its own rewards!!

Understanding rare seed is just that- rare and hard to find- the amounts may vary than the suggestions listed above- but please try to send the amount of seed you would like to receive. We all like to feel as good about the giving as the receiving.

If you have any questions at all- please let me know-
Thanks for looking, and heres to a great swap!!

Julie

Hey there Kayemell!

Welcome aboard!

 o
RE: NEW: 3rd Annual- Named Variey / Rare / Unusual - Seed Exchan

Hi,
I'm a little confused. Are these seeds that we purchase for the exchange then. Since named cultivars don't come true from seed?


 o
RE: NEW: 3rd Annual- Named Variey / Rare / Unusual - Seed Exchan

Hi there Julie-
Thanks for bringing this up- It is an oppertunity for some discussion-
Although it is true- not all named varieties come true from seed. Especially the newer varieties such as the Echinacea 'Art's Pride', 'Sunrise', 'Sunset', 'Go-Crazy', ' Mango' Ect- which are genetically "improved" and do not usually/ever come true to seed, and revert instead to something closer to the species.
There are also those plants that rarely/never make seed such as the geranium 'Rozanne' as well.
Many more named varieties have stable predictabe established traits passed on to it's desendents through the seed- such as Echinacea 'Kim's Knee High', 'Doppelganger' and others. My Dianthus 'Rainbow Lovlieness' always comes back from seed as 'Rainbow Lovlieness'- even when grown in close proximity to other Dianthus- although that is not true with all Dianthus varieties.
I have recently traded with some one who wanted to try one of those newer Echinecea varieties I mentioned above (again), even after I warned her about them. She knew all about it- and still wanted to try her hand at it as I have- I guess with some- hope springs eternal!
Some times- an easy although not entirely accurate way to know if your open pollenated seed may have a chance at coming true to form- would be to see if it is offered in seed catalogs. Seed companies go to great lengths to offer genetically accurate seeds- which most of us are not doing in our own gardens. But usually a search in the forums- or on the web will clarify which may no chance at all of coming true to form.
But to get back to your question- I would think that commercial packaged seed would certainly be acceptable- as well as open pollenated hand gathered seed- even field gathered seed- as long as - to the best of your ability- you present your seed as honestly as you are able, and it fits the requirements of named variety, rare or unusual seed.
With that said- I guess I should mention each packet should have the name of the plant on it, and the variety- any thing additional is icing on the cake.
I know I will be using the 'left overs' of my commercial packs, I rarely want to start as many plants as there are seeds in a packet- as well as those purchased with the sole intention of sharing- and my hand collected open pollenated seed from my gardens- and even some "left over" seed from trusted others I have traded with.
Thanks for asking about named varieteis-
I hope I have cleared a few things up-
Julie

RE: NEW: 3rd Annual- Named Variey / Rare / Unusual - Seed Exchan

Welcome Elizabeth!

It does not matter how many or few you send in- any one can participate with any seeds that may fit the bill. We all start out some where- and if it had not been for GW friends and trades made here these past few years- I would be right where you are- with only a couple of types that qualify.
So glad you signed up!

Today I mailed off my seeds to you, Julie! With our weather, and my seed ordering done, there's no point waiting around.

I may have sent more than 5 pkts. of a few - oops - DH heading off to the PO (we don't get delivery to the house we're so far out in the sticks) made me hurry. If I did, sorry, Julie!

Waiting will be hard for this swap. It's the best!

RE: NEW: 3rd Annual- Named Variey / Rare / Unusual - Seed Exchan

Hi there y'all-
Just a breif update- we have 27 posted members to our swap- and 14 more days to sign up and a few more than that to send in. I am really pleased with the turn out so far! I have a good feeling that we will really be giving some thanks come Thanksgiving this year, and all over again all during the next growng season!
I want you all to know that my schedule will be quite busy till the 31st- so please- do not worry if I do not respond to any questions or new posts till then- I will do my best to check in- and keep connected with you all- but again- correspondence may have to wait till the 31st.
Remember- this swap is for anyone to join in the fun- whether you have 5 seed packets that qualify- or many more! It is not about how many you can send in- it is about sharing and receiving the special seeds- those named varieties- the rare or unusual seeds- of any type- blooms- foliage- veg- herbs- woodies- you "name" it! And to me- it is also about spreading joy through our gardening with other gardeners.
Thanks again for helping this to be a great exchange!

Julie


 o
Named Variey / Rare / Unusual - Seed Exchange

Hey there- no worries Barb-
With this many folks signed up a few more than 5 shouldn't really be a problem. It was a number I picked out of thin air in hopes that we wouldn't have too many duplicates sent to each person.
Hey Lookie! Barb said she sent in her envelope!! WOO WHO!!! That means we are getting that much closer to getting our envelopes back!!
Oh- I am excited!


 o
1st Envelope Received!

Hey there-
I wanted you all to know- the first envelope for this swap from Barb has been received! Looks like there are several packets already designated for their new homes- and several more just waiting to be "hand picked" for us all!
Oh- we are sure to have a great swap with such great folks and their seeds all in the mix!

Hi again-
Envelope #2 from Patty- "PattyGrow5" has arrived today!

Thanks- Julie

Hi Ann and Amanda!
I came to look at peoples wish lists(I'm glad people want unusual veggies!) and I saw your posts. Somewhere in the above messages, Julie posted that she might not be able to come to the computer much until the 31st. As far I know, the swap is still open. She wrote that people must respond by Nov. 4th. I'm sure she'll be back to write to you both soon.

Hi there- I'm back!
Thanks so much for your patience while I was away!
I want to say welcome to Amanda, Mildred, Pam and Ann! So glad to have you join our exchange! You all should have mail from me-
I received 2 packets whil I was away- another from Barb- barbamaman (Thanks!) and one from Candy- I am pretty sure that is CandyCow- although no GW name - but the home town matches so I feel pretty sure about this envelope...
I do think I may have made an error on my second envelope received- It was from Patty- I had 2 to choose from- and I think I guessed wrong. Patty_B emailed me that she had not gotten a confirmation from me for her sent seeds- Patty-B and Patty Grow5 look for mail from me soon- I am sorry for my error-
PLEASE be sure to add your GW name on the inside note- or if you forgot- put it in the envelope- There are some of you I only can Identify by your GW Name- I do need that info to identify who's seeds are whose!
Thanks so much for making this a great exchange-

I received Simply Lisa's seeds on halloween-
Looks like there will be more arriving any day now!

We still have a few short days left for anyone thinking they may want to join in our fun! Just post below by November 4th- there is no minimum needed to enter- just the requirement that your seeds be a named variety- rare or unsusual! Even if you only have 1 type of seed to fit the bill- if you send in 5 packets of that 1 seed- you should receive 5 different packets back! All for the cost of postage only! It is a fun and easy way to grow more varieties in your garden- and you may even get that elusive treasure you always wanted- or receive a new to you favorite you never even knew existed!
Don't be shy- post away!

Hey there ya'all-
I wanted to give one last shout out for anyone still thinking about joining in on the fun- There is till the close of the day Saturday to sign up for this exchange- don't be shy and let this pass you by- Just post below before Sunday! If you have 1 type of seed that qualifies- just send in 5 packets of that seed and receive 5 different packets back! If you have more than 1 type- well you can send them all if you wish.... It is easy and fun!
For those of you who have signed up- I will close this "New" invatational post- and start another "UPDATE" post with the same 3rd annual named variety/rare/unusual seed exchange subject line for us to use for the follow up posts on Sunday morning.
I received envelopes from Romando/Amanda and JSelwa today! And I would like to add- this IS going to be a good swap for us all! I can tell already!! So many folks are digging deep to find their rare or unsusal or special named variety seeds- It can't help but be good for all of us!!
Mildred- I do believe the smallest envelope received so far was about 20 packets- and the largest- over100! There really is no minimum- so no worries there!
Have a good weekend!
Julie

Hey Julie! It's getting cold out and you can sure tell by the activity at work. I should have your package in the mail by Monday!! I've been working on it in the evenings when we're watching tv. (I don't really watch, but he appreciates the companionship on the couch!). I picked some clematis seed heads today, the smaller types are being incredibly slow in setting up this year.

I'm excited and looking forward to seeing what you put together. If I can help over a Saturday let me know.

Hi there-
The sign up for this exchange is now closed.
I want to extend a BIG THANK YOU to all who have entered and have made this swap a joy for us all!
For those of you who have signed up and have not sent your seeds- please try to have them in the mail by November 11th. I will do my best to see that they are on their way back to you by November 25th.
I will open a new post for updates to this exchange.

He he he- Lynn! You have a chair full of seeds and chaff too! I hope I never spill a glass of water on that chair!!
I still have 2 bags of bags left to clean- and a few seed heads left to gather... I too agree that many plants set seeds late or not too well at all- but- there is enough to share- and there is always next year!!

Thanks Again-

Julie
