Garden Blogger Seed Swap 2009

To kick this Garden Blogger Seed Swap off I'll share with you what I have to offer! Anyone is invited to join in even if you don't have a blog. Just post what you would like to trade for and what you have to offer in the comments or drop me an email! I will update this post to reflect each seed claim as I go. I may have a few more to trade as I sort through the seed jars (baby food jars are great for storing seed!)


Coreopsis 'Sunfire'

Coreopsis 'Sunfire' (Tickseed)
10-12 offers of 20-30 seeds. These are second generation coreopsis seeds, the original plant was a 'Sunfire' coreopsis. They may have some variations. Very easy to grow from seed!


'Arizona Sun' Gaillardia

5-6 offers of 20-30 seeds.

'Oranges and Lemons' Gaillardia
'Oranges and Lemons' Gaillardia
3-4 offers of 20-30 seeds

Mixed Heucheras
1-2 offers of 20-30 seeds. These came from 'Purple Palace' and several others. The 'Purple Palace' heucheras generally breed true.


Coleus
Coleus
1-2 offers of 15-20 seeds.





Morning Glory
Blue Morning Glories
5-8 offers of 15-20 seeds.

Thai Basil
I have a couple of extra packets of Thai basil that I could spare. It's a purple basil with a little more tang than its Italian cousin.

Rudbeckia
Rudbeckias
Mixed rudbeckias from various spots. I have quite a few of these.

Prunella
I have several packets of this that I don't need that people are welcome to trade for. To err on the safe side I'll say I have 3 to trade.


Marigold
Marigolds
I have no earthly clue, I have so many! Just tell me if you would like some! Many people plant these near tomato plants as a companion plant. I did last year and had very few pest problems. It either worked or I was just lucky!

  4. Hi Dave,
    It looks like the seed swap is off to a goog start. I have a lot of seeds to go through. I'd better get started.

  5. Dear Dave,
    Thankyou so much for the seeds! To be honest, the world sort of snuck up on me and I had forgotten about it until your seeds arrived. I sent my contributions out on Tuesday, so you should have them any time. Thanks again!
