Seeds I have to trade:

  • Here is a link to trade reviews for girlgroupgirl on the rate and review forum I ask that if you trade with me, please leave an encouraging word. I will do the same for you. It fosters confidence in others to trade plants and seeds!
  • All seeds are home saved this year from open pollinated, organically grown plants. I do not require this of others, but I prefer your own home grown and saved seeds from open pollinated and heirloom plants! I especially love to trade with others who live in the Southeast and experience hot, humid climates and deluge or drought conditions. This year I am looking for permaculture seeds as I am building guilds and insectaries.

Seeds I am looking for:

  • I am particularly looking for seeds you have grown in your own home garden. I am not interested in trading for seeds you "pre-traded", or purchased seed, please. I LOVE your personal seeds!
