Yes, I'm a seed hoarder. I go to "Seed hoarder anonymous". I can't stop myself. I have no control. I must have every seed on the planet when I die.
Anyone else?

Yes, I am a seed hoarder.
It is one of the healthier addictions I am sure.
My dining table is covered in brown bags of seeds drying, and my coffee table is covered in
organza bags of seed branches and small glassine envelopes.
I just bought a box of coin envelopes to store seeds.
This addiction keeps me happy and healthy trying to grow some of the seeds!

Definitely a seed hoarder here too... Just yesterday, I "stole" a handful of water lotus seeds from my workplace - I knew the seedheads were going to end up in the trash when the landscaping crew came through, so I took them even though I don't have a pond Rolling my eyes. (Hey, they're viable for 200 years, I may get a pond in that time Whistling )

Guilty as charged!

It is only slowly sinking in that I could only try a limited number of new varieties every year.
Worse, I already have more things that I wnat to grow, than I have bed space (or time) to grow them in!

Even if I never traded or bought another seed, I may have 200 year's worth already.

If we re-incarnatge as a gardener, do we get to keep our seed stash?

Is there some type of 12-step program for seed addicts?

But, there are worse vices, aren't there???? nodding
