Seeds I have to trade:

  • Updated Sept 20. I may not put a new date on here frequently, but the info is usually correct--I am revamping it right now, taking old stuff off and trying to remember what's to be added. I'm always open to trades, and I'll try to write back to say if I'm too busy :) If I don't reply, it's probably because Gardenweb's mail didn't go through, but I apologize if I'm ever so busy that I don't even get an email out. (I know that happened during finals!)

  • My favorite seed-buying sites:
  • Swallowtail Garden Seeds
  • Valueseeds.com
  • Tomato Growers Supply
  • Artistic gardens will get a try sometimethey have $.35 sample packs!

  • HERE'S the short and abrupt version of what's below, if you're an experienced trader: Yup, bubble envy, trades are ~25 seeds, small ones more like 40, or you'll see the amount listed. Yes there's chaff. Don't send me a whole flower head or wet seeds in plastic. I don't mind you asking for more things from me than I do from you, although it may be fewer seeds of each thing, depending. I may ask the same of you :)

  • LOOONG VERSION, for folks new to trading here:
  • Please, let's both use bubble envelopes unless otherwise discussed. Maybe a regular envelope for tomato seeds would be ok, otherwise I don't think it's worth the risk.

  • Some of my seeds will have chaffzinnias will have a lot! There will be the right amount of seeds, too, though. When you send your seeds to me, I would prefer not to receive a full flower headI once received one that had about 5 good seeds. You never know if they ripened properly, or if the bugs have been busy. Also, if you are in any doubt about the seeds being dry, please send the seeds in paper, or add rice into the Ziploc bag.

  • AMOUNTS: In trading, I like to do a few trades to make the postage worthwhile. I'd usually rather get a small amount of more types of seeds. I'm happy to send little ziploc bags along with my side of the trade to "pay back" any extra bags you may use on me! And feel free to ask the same of me. With average-size seeds, I usually send 25 unless they are rare or expensive, or if the full commercial pack has fewer than 25. I try to note that next to the seeds in the list. Bigger seeds are up for discussion, and tiny seeds will be somewhere between 25 and 40. I know some people send a lot of tiny seeds, but are you really going to grow 150 poppy plants? If so, let me know, and I can probably include more seeds
  • -------------------END of looong version------------------

  • My codes: G is seed I grew/gathered, C is commercial, T is trade. If it is less than a year old I might have no date next to it. Otherwise, the posted year is the year I gathered it, for a trade it's the year I received it (unless the trader labeled the year) or for commercial seed, the year it was sold for.

  • My seeds have always done well for the 2-3 years before I use them up, but the dates are there so you can decide for yourself. Tomato seeds are good for a long time--5 years? 10? A long time!

  • --Cosmos mixed striped picotee G

  • -Dianthus armeria, "Deptford Pink" ~18" tall, tiny pink flowers, blooms in poor dry soil and part shade, is an annual or biennial. Reseeds well enough that I thought it was perennial, yet it is not invasive for me

  • --Larkspur: either Forking or Rocket, (takes a magnifier to decide) 18" to 4 ft (in shade) Mostly blue-purple and white, some pale pale blue.. Gorgeous en masse! Self-seeds nicely. If you are not growing larkspur, you need to do so. G

  • --Red peony and fringed mix (peony poppy crossed with Danish Flag)
  • --Small short reds, like Flanders poppies. Some variation in shades of red. G09

  • --Zinnia profusion cherry, grown isolated G09
  • -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • --------------------------------Perennials:------------------------

  • Achillea Love Parade, pink daisyish flowers in a cluster. Fades eventually to white. Very long-lasting, somewhat floppy in my garden (not full sun), and the deer actually go after this one. I like it, though. G09
  • --Agastache/Anise Hyssop: G . First-year bloomer, hummingbirds visit it. Ive noticed my finches and chickadees love it in the winter!
  • --Agastache white form of Anise Hyssop. Growing with the lavender, so expect some lavender in there too.
  • --Agastache Golden Jubilee chartreuse foliage G08
  • --Agastache unknown pink, med height G08

  • --Candy lily, medium orange on all petals, 3-4 ft tall G 08

  • --Campanula Persicifolia (bellflower) blue/lavender and white mix, or I have a little that is all-white. Note: My deer eat them! G08

  • -------------------------------Dianthus::
  • --Red, ~8", early bloom and a decent second bloom.
  • (Dianthus armeria is in the annuals section)

  • --Siberian Blues, not quite yet (this is a vivid lavender flower, do not be fooled by marketing photos!)

  • Feverfew: blooms first year, and can handle a lot of shade. It reseeds a lot, but if you cut it back to prevent that, you get some rebloom. The Flore Pleno is much less fertile than the single, meaning it seeds less, and it blooms for a longer time. This is a great filler plant for me. Plants are ~8" first year, about 12-16" 2nd year
  • --single (cute daisy-like single flowers)
  • --Flore pleno/double (cute all-white double flowers). G
  • --Rotary: a little gap between the narrower petals, very cute. No seed yet, but sometime this fall!
  • --Virgo: a white center like a button mum, then white petals. No seed yet, but sometime this fall!
  • Forget-me-not, pink (perennial) G
  • ----------------------------------------Foxgloves: Digitalis, different species. Biennial-short-lived perennial, takes some shade, lives longest in sandy soil.
  • --From Excelsior Hybrids, (Digitalis purpurea) and should grow true. Meaning: tall, early summer-blooming, spotted throats, buds are yellow and then change color. Biennial. Deer do not eat mine. I have:
  • Light pink
  • Deep pink, I call it "raspberry"
  • White
  • Candy mountain, Cfor 09, 25 seeds. This is the foxglove with the flowers pointing horizontal, not down.

  • --Digitalis lutea, Straw foxglove. Perennial, sometimes biennial. Pale yellow small flowers, stalks are ~3.5 tall, glossy foliage. Seed pods look like penstemon.

  • Echinacea purpurea: a wonderful deep pink-purple coneflower from my garden G
  • E. purpurea White Swan: grown next to other coneflowers, so there may be cross-pollination.
  • Echinacea Tiki Torch, I dont know if this will be fertile or grow true to parent
  • Erigeron, Blue Beauty: violet-blue petaled flowers, ~5/8 inch across. Related to the Fleabane weed, but this is a nice ornamental. G
  • Joe Pye Chocolate: Eupatorium. Lovely dark purple leaves, 2-3 feet tall, white flowers in early autumn. The deer leave this eupatorium alone. G
  • Regular Joe Pye, tall: tufty pink flowers in late summer, butterflies like it, deer eat it. G
  • ---------------------------------------

  • Fennel, Bronze: Airy, brown-bronze plant growing 3-4. Swallowtails lay eggs on this. Edible as fennel, too. G
  • Gaillardia: Gaillardia x grandiflora

  • --Oranges and Lemons G07

  • Goldenrod, Solidago: Fireworks. 3 tall, with sprays of yellow flowers. G
  • Goldenrod, Solidago: Golden Baby: extra from trade 2008. 12-18", looks like a dwarf regular goldenrod.
  • Goldenrod, Solidago Little Lemon, possibly seeds this year from my new plants. Color is a bit more lemony than reg. goldenrod, and plants are ~10: high.
  • Helenium tall yellow (4') can be pinched back I'm sure. Laaate summer bloom, long bloom
  • Helenium medium or tall (I htink the deer pinched it back for me) rusty yellow. Fades to yellow.
  • -----------------------------------------Hollyhocks: (please note, plants may be cross-pollinated, so you may be a bit surprised!)
  • -Medium pink . from "Happy Lights Antwerp," supposed to be perennial (3 years for me so far) G09
  • -Deep pink-red
  • -Deep red-black
  • -Yellow with blush of orange from Happy Lights
  • - White with blush of red

  • Iris: Siberian, deep blue-purple (th etypical color)
  • Iris: Jjapanese, Lavender, I think
  • Jack in the Pulpit: Sorry, I don't know the exact one. It has a stripey flower :) It's from my garden, moved there from another private garden. Seeds are red now. Special trade
  • Knautia macedonica. Long-blooming, dark red tufy flowers. (scabiosa and knautia are either dlosely related, or the same species now) G09
  • Lambs Ear, Stachys byzantina/lanata. This is the real thing, I actually know what lambs ear looks like : ) This is not rose campion or verbascum, which is also grey-leaved and fuzzy. A nice plant for contrasting foliage effects.
  • Lespedeza thunbergii Shuburi ito. 4-6', late-summer blooming, shrublike. Seeds not ready yet
  • Liatris: I have a bazillion seeds, mostly or all purple, no further info available G08 :), these are also a freebie

  • Lychnis coronaria is down with Rose Campion
  • Lychnis yunanensis or viscaria (those 2 are similar, and I started both, and...) Short tufts of foliage and clusters of pink or white flowers in late spring G09
  • Lychnis Lumina Red: about half have purple foliage, half are green. Both have intense red blooms, slightly scarlet, ~3/4" across. About 1' tall, bloomes early summer, often goes dormant in the heat. G
  • Mallow, pink. Bushy, s/pt sh, 2-3ft, long bloom period. Deer eat it.
  • Montauk Daisy: fall-blooming plant that looks like a big shasta daisy. Very shrubby, with nice leathery leaves.
  • Nepeta "Sweet Deams" catmint, pink flowers. G09
  • Northern Sea Oats, Chasmanthium latifolium. Nice low ornamental grass with dangling oats in autumn. Not ready yet
  • --Obedient Plant, White. (Physostegia virginiana) Also known as white dragonflower and false dragonhead. Ignored by deer. Tall, blooms in mid-late summer. Some say it is invasive, but in my yard it doubles every 2 years, or even slower in the tough spots. G08
  • Painter's Palette, Tovara, persicaria: shade foliage, variegated, red, deer-proof. Invasive in some areas, not at all for me. G08
  • Penstemon:
  • --Huskers Red (red foliage, white flowers)
  • --others left over from trade, I need to get them listed.
  • --Poppy: Oriental, orange-red. G (perennial. I have annual poppies, too)

  • Salvia, Tall hardy white. Grows to about 4' tall. Seed originally from Remy. Easy germinator. G08
  • Salvia sclarea tukestanica Vatican White. Biennial. Huge panicle of white flowers and bracts in 2nd year. Mine did nicely directly under a big silver maple. G09
  • salvia lyrata purple volcano -- not yet
  • Salvia, Silver
  • Salvia transylvanica
  • Sea Holly, Flat G
  • sea holly, agavefolium G08 germinated well
  • sedum: Will have seed for: Purple Emperor and Jaws.
  • I have a variety of sedums, and if we trade at the right time of year, a small pinch of sedum is as easy to send as a packet of seeds, and saves you time.
  • --Soapwort (Saponaria officinalis) Wildflower: pink-white somewhat phlox-looking flowers. Roots were used as soap! Withstands tough growing conditions. G

  • --Shasta Daisy (variety unknown) app 18" high, flowers 2.5 inches across. Mid-summer flowering, good rebloomer. G
  • --Shasta Daisy: Alaska. grows 2 feet tall. T 08

  • Verbascum chaixii album Milkshake. White, blooms are ~1", rather sparse, floppy in my part shade. Left alone by the deer, though.
  • --------------Heirloom tomatoes:

  • I ferment my seeds. I have open-pollinated and bagged (isolated) seed from many on the list. Tomato seeds last for years, and all of these are 0-2 years old.

  • I'm happy to trade tomato seeds for flowers or other things. I would like to trade bagged/commercial seed for commercial or bagged seed, but that of course may change for a seed I really want! Also, if youve grown your many tomato varieties all mixed together, Id like to hear your experiences with cross-pollination. (Has there been a lot? Not much? Tell me!)

  • Trades of tomato seeds seem to vary a lot in size, probably because commercial packs come with about 20 seeds and saving seed means hundreds of seeds. If I'm trading commercial seeds, I hope it's ok if those trades are for fewer seeds. Trades of garden-grown OP seed will probably be abut 20 seeds, but that's totally negotiable

  • --Gardeners Delight cherry G
  • --Yellow Grape/Ildi, but I am not 100% sure G

  • --White Currant x Something Red: one of my White Currant volunteers made a delicious red cherry. The saved seeds will result in strange stuff, but will probably taste very good
