Seeds I have to trade:

  • Welcome to my 2014 list!
  • I will give you 20 to 30 seeds per trade item (more for tiny ones like carrot or spinach that are often planted in large numbers in small areas, and less for large seeds). But if you want more, just ask if I have more.
  • I don't expect a perfectly even exchange or bubble wrap. As long as you wouldn't be offended to receive what you're sending me, please do. I usually send large and bulky or fragile small seeds and large quantities with bubble wrap, even if in a plain envelope.
  • Any with asterisks after the year mean I have less than 15 of that type from that year. If you see any you like with an asterisk, let me know. I'll tell you know how many I have and give them all to you as a bonus item along with your trade item if you want.
  • Some of my seeds will come with sowing and care instructions copied from the seed pack they came in. Ask any questions you like as to where the seeds came from, germination rate, and growth habits. I'm not a master gardener, but I can tell you my experience with the ones I've planted in Maryland Zone 7.
