Seeds I have to trade:

  • UPDATED 2-20-12
  • Thanks for looking! My list is always a work in progress...
  • All of my seeds are open pollinated. I collect, trade, and replant more than I purchase.
  • Some colors evolve over time. So, I've tried to list the colors I saw last year.
  • I'm in Zone 5b/Central Illinois. Mostly hot/humid summers, soggy/cold spring and fall, very cold/dry winter.
  • My native soil is mostly silt and sand; fast draining, often too dry, and alkaline.
  • Plants listed in green are my native wildflowers(weeds) or cultivars of natives.
  • Plants listed in red may be invasive in milder climates.
  • Feel free to correct me. My annuals might be your invasive perennials.
  • C = commercial seed, T = traded seed, G = grown/collected from my garden or elsewhere, :year collected

  • Anything with FREE in front can go for 3 first class stamps:

  • <> Just send stamps in a regular envelope. I have more BE's than I'll ever use.
  • <> Large Envelope Postage: less than 12 X 15 X 3/4 inches
  • .......................... 6x9 BE to 1 oz. = 2 first class stamps
  • .......................... 1 oz. to 3 oz. = 3 first class stamps
  • <> I will send as much seed as I can fit in a 6x9 BE - up to three ounces.
  • <> That's 6-8 kinds of seed, depending on the variety. More or less if the seeds are fat.
  • <> Don't be shy...rate your choices, amounts, and alternates. Ask about trades...
  • <> Any/otherwise, I'll send what I have and not waste postage. :)
  • <> Be sure to include your GW name, address, and seed request.

  • For TRADES or FREE:

  • <> Please, be patient...I may take a day or two to reply or send stuff. That's ASAP for me and my internet access (VERY SLOW).
  • <> Include your GW name on everything you send. It will prevent a lot of confusion.
  • <> Use "reply". It will make the conversation easier to follow.
  • <> Please PM if there is a problem or delay. I will too.
