Seeds I have to trade:

  • Not everything I have is listed, so if you are looking for something particular, please ask. I package all seeds safely. For very small trades, I will used a business envelope lined with cardboard and bubble wrap, and I always specify "hand cancel". For larger trades, I always use bubble envelopes. I expect all trading partners to do the same - I have received too many crushed seeds that were not properly protected.
