RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Hello I will try and see........We will need sponsors for any newbies.........Sponsors will donate 10 or more seed packs for their chosen newbie.I thought this might be a good way to meet some of the new members.Let me know if you would/could sponsor someone as I have a limit of 25 newbies in this..If I cannot get sponsors ........I cannot run this newbie round robin.....We have 3 newbies here and crazypalmlady is a newbie ..... I will be curlers and flipflops sponsor to her surprise... so gw members help me out here ok...Newbies will be responsible for sasbe return postage........if we get enough sponsors....We have alot of good people here. I dont think we will have a problem getting sponsors for all 25......so we will need 23 sponsors and 20 more new newbies

I would like to sponsor 2 newbies. I would like to sponsor your mother and also I will take Gladys. Let me know if this is ok.


 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Donna,
I think it would be better to just send the seeds directly to the newbie, this way it is less postsge and also less work for you. What do you think? I have found this to be a better way.


 o

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

ferguson303, I sent you an email requesting you wish list.

Ginger


 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Hi. I am a newbie - especially at seeds. Summer '07 is my first season gardening, and I have "met" so very many kind and generous people! I've planted lots of perennials, a small shade garden, lots of roses and daylilies. I've propagated roses through cuttings - and now a few other things, too! I've planted some fall bulbs. I've even collected seed from a few of my plants. Just about the only thing I haven't tried is starting things from seed! So, if someone would be kind enough to sponsor me, I'd love to participate in this RR trade. I am not real picky about my wants. Just so long as it's not something difficult to start from seed. Other than that, anything goes!

Thanks,
Amanda :)


 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Ginger has became my sponsor and I wish to thank you for doing so. She has asked in an email what I would like - I am open to anything and would truly appreciate whatever is offer. I live in Texas, believe it is zone 8a and not sure what will do well here with the hot dry summers.

I do have some wants but I don't expect these, I have seen pictures of there and they are truly wonderful. Maybe one day:

Moonflower Vine
Rose of Sharon
Phlox
Allium
Amaryllis
Ferns


 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Goozylucy and Amelia_Pepper_Lady, I sent e-mails to both of you. Please contact me by e-mail so I can send you my address and you can tell me a little about your gardens. Take a look at my list and give me some general ideas about what you like. If you didn't get my e-mail, you can get my address from my gardenweb page.

Becky

 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Thanks for all the support this summer!

 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Angie

I have to admit..that after looking it up I also wanted some for myself..hehe...but I will share...
Melanie


 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Well, I've been following this thread for a while now, and I've finally decided to jump in. I wasn't sure if I would have enough seeds to share, since I am in three or four really big swaps. But I figure I can save back a few seed packets for a newbie. I also have a huge seed stash, some of them are from 2005, if anyone wants to give them a shot, they're welcome to them.

How bout I sponsor janet1_2007? I looked at her want list and I have a lot of the seeds on her list. I also winter sow, and we're in a similar zone, (I'm technically in zone 6, but right on the border of 5). And I make lasagna beds, I'm in the process of making a really huge one right now.

I'm not much of a designer, I don't know what looks good with what, I don't know about foliage contrasts, etc., I'm more of an experimental mad scientist type when it comes to my gardening.

How bout it, Janet?

Alison/dawiff


 o
RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Jwink 246 and shootthatdeer still need a sponsor thanks to dawiff for sponsoring janet1........ dawiff.... about those extra seeds.... you could join in on jumpstart on spring or we would love to have them to share.....We could always try them....shootthatdeer just keep checking this thread till you get a sponsor and please list your wants and jwink246 post somemore wants if someone sees they have alot of your wants it makes it easier to get a sponsor.............still we have plenty of time...Rosepedal I have some of your seeds ready for mailing out I dont have any shrub seeds could you post some more wants so I see if I have any of them for you...........jwink we have plenty of time.....love to all ...donna.

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Alison, this sounds great to me.I am new to WS, and basically new to flower seed sowing and saving seed. I've always loved flowers, but due to family responsibilities and a 12 hour a day job with an hour each way comute, until my retirement most of my flowers were either gifts or something I seen at Lowes and just couldn't resist. I am so excited about finally having the time to really do something I have only dreamed about for most of my life.I am really looking forward to this. Thanks for being my sponsor. Janet

Arlene,
go all the way to the bottom of the page to the green strip, click on member pages, then click on edit your trade list, type in your have and want list, click on submit and that is all there is to it.

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

I am home, and am so excited to hook up with you, veeja11. I have updated my trade page, but can not get it to come up on a search--what am I doing wrong? I love anything that attracts hummers and butterflies, as well as those on my list. I heard one time that the only difference between a weed and a flower is what a person thinks is pretty- therefore- there are not very many weeds in my world-lol!!

Donna, picked up two Angels off the Angel tree at work. Think I got carried away with what I got, but it's all for a very good cause.

Can't wait until planting season, my yard will be the best looking one in the neighborhood!!!

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Hi I am a newbie,

I would love a sponsor who specializes in cool climate veggie/fruit, herb, edible flowers. Anyone who knows seed saving and winter sowing would be great. I am in Oregon Climate. I have so many questions and so far I love all my gw friends.

Thanks.

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Hello! You all sound like such lovely people, plus you're garden lovers, so this is a group I definitely would like to get to know! I'm a newbie to GW (3 months), transplanted from N. Ireland to east-southern Illinois, and would be ever-so-grateful if someone would sponsor me. I am a confessed plant-a-holic . My trade lists are pretty large, yet still incomplete. Specialties are roses (I'm a consulting rosarian & hybridizer, but that's only to feed my plant addictions;-), cannas, dahlias, oh heck PLANTS!
Thanks in advance for anyone kind enough to sponsor me!
Red Willow (Rua Saileach in Irish - 'roo-ah sahl-icks') My trade lists are at healing32eire.

I'm confused after reading some of the post, was I suppose to send SASBE and postage to my sponsor?

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

I do not fully understand the process of the Round Robins, but would love to learn, I am new to gardening and growing, starting propagating with cuttings and a mist system, now got hooked on seed growing. I would like to have a sponsor this year and would love to sponsor next year.
My obsessions this year are:
Dahlias, seeds like the fact they can be different from the mother plant
Day Lily seeds, no yellow or orange
Black berry lily seeds
Delphiniums
mini sunflowers
Giant Zinnias
Rose hips
Coleus, love bright colors
foxgloves
snap dragons
dill
gerber daisy
hardy geraniums
helleborus
hardy hibiscus
hardy lavender
color cascade series, lobelia
lupine
pansies
parsley
penstemon barbatus
petinia, I love the minis and the wave series
rosemary
salivia, red,white have purple
statice
veronica
These are just ideas, love cut type flower, really love dahlias, roses and day lilies, want to try hybreeding this summer, have 8 acreas that I want to put in several new gardens. Thank to anyone willing to sponsor me!
Let me know if I did this wrong,
Tammy

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Hi!
I am very new to this forum. I joined here on 5th dec`07. My heart lies in growing veggies from seeds.I am more interested in heirlooms (though hybrids are great too ) mainly because it is possible to save seeds ;). I like flower gardening and plant propagation too - despite the fact that only a tiny fraction of the cuttings survive the encounter with my brown thumb :(
I would be glad if somebody would be willing to sponsor me.

I am keeping my fingers crossed in anticipation!

RE: NEW: Sponsor a Newbie

Donna,
I can help Mokey with a few plants, if she is close enough that we can meet in person. It is too cold for mailing plants now, but I have assorted unnamed nubby brugs cuttings, red canna tubers, nubby confererate rose cuttings and dark red rose hips. Mokey will still need a sponsor for other things though.
