Hetaher is running her multi-Website seed swap again this year!

Tomatoes and peppers only. Known, named varieties only.
Send her up to 40 pkts, minimum 10 seeds per pkt and maximum of 5 pkts of any one one type.
Get back the same numbe of pkts, matched as closely as possible to your wishlist.

Seeds to be received (in Canada) no later than Nov 15, so send them by Oct 20 at the latest, from the USA. I've never had Customs or phytosanitary hassels.

Here's a link where she lists details, in Tomatoville.com and GardenWeb
If anyone has trouble reading or posting there, let me know and I'll forward your email contact info to Heather.

I've been benefitting from Heather's exchange for the last few years, and a fine time was had by all!

Wish I'd seen this earlier! Then again, I've mostly purchased plants the past few years, so I suppose I wouldn't have had much of a selection of seed to send in. This winter I went a little crazy ordering tomato seeds, though, so I'll definitely have some to share next year!

Hi Angie

I saw your list on another forum, and it sounds like you are WELL stocked for next year's swap.

I tend to buy just a few (but large) commercial packets, then divide them up and rely on Heather for variety. She knew about many short-season, cold-climate varieties that I never would have known to order for myself.

A lot of websites give you five times as many seeds for twice the price and the same S&H. I can't resist that bargain, and Heather's swap means that I get hugely more variety than I could have afforded to buy one packet at a time.

Hazzards is one place to buy big packets.

Heather does a great job!
I did not go in her swap this year,--- because I have so many from previous swaps.
It is an excellent way to obtain seeds for a great variety of tomatoes and peppers.

I have to admit that two years in Heather's swap left me with more tomatoes than I'll be able to try in five years. So now I'm collecting a library of peppers.
