The swap has been postponed until August 17. Please start saving seeds! Thanks, Julie

I'm so glad you postponed it Julie. That gives me a chance to collect some Morning Glory and other vine seeds before the swap.

I may postpone it for later. What do you think about the end of September?

That's probably better for me, anyway, but it's whatever you think. I. nils don't really make many seeds for me before August. September would allow more time for them to develop.

That's what I was thinking. Plus, by the end of September, I'll have more hibiscus seeds, plus others! I also have Amaryliis seeds forming on most of my amaryllis that I planted for Christmas.

Julie, I discovered a few days ago that priority rates have gone up a LOT as of Jan. 17, The small box and padded envelope now cost $6.80 to mail, and I found no discount for printing my own labels. It used to be $5.25 and $5.70 with the discount.

Thank you! I'll have to update the cost... unfortunately! Grumbling

That's what happened to those of us that had January swaps going on. Thumbs down I knew the $6 fee would be unsustainable, so I put my fee at $7....then, when both of the other January swaps put $6, I lowered to $6.50....turns out, I should have left it at the original fee. Sad Anyhoo...definitely give yourself some buffer on your fees because you want to make sure your delivery costs are covered! Good luck!

@dogsndaylilies I changed the cost to $7. I hope you join the swap. Would love to have some daylily seeds! Smiling

May I make a suggestion? There are some gardeners who grow flowers in these categories who are madly passionate about these flowers. Would you consider an interest thread so that the number of participants could be flexible?

Blue, which flowers would you like to see interest threads on? (Did you mean to ask for more specific seed swaps?)

DND, I am more category/possibility oriented than upon anything specific. It's the surprise of discovering something you didn't know you had to try growing that is most of the fun in a seed exchange or swap for me. That said, I do love morning glories, as well as anything else that climbs. And then there are the tiny gems that clothe the ground beneath and "look back up at you" as a friend once used to say - some like Tellima grandiflora are major work-savers in impossibly shady, dry places - and some of that category have the delicacy of a fairy garden, like Epimedium grandiflora - but as Dan Hinckley pointed out, we've hardly begun to explore the world of epidediums - me included.

I guess, speaking for myself, when it comes down to specifics, a place is more of a point of departure than a point to occupy. Anyhoo, it's an attitude that makes my garden a little more adventurous than it otherwise might be - a mess yes, but an adventurous mess Green Grin!

Julie, is it okay to mention sources of seeds relative to your swap? I'll come back and delete this, if so - great source of unusual morning glories - http://www.ebay.com/sch/azuremore/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg...

There are other wonderful MG sources that others knowledgeable about the subject can recommend.

I'd love to post interest threads if you would like. When you say to make the number of participants more flexible, do you mean adding to the number of participants? That's not a problem, but I don't want to make the number too high as to be overwhelming.

Any suggestions?

I am interested in flower seed only swap. I have a massive collection if anyone else is interested in a flower seed swap?

I was very interested in this swap when it was first posted. Is it still on?
