Sometimes swappers don't know what to offer in the swap until you state what you're looking for. This is your chance to let everyone know what seeds tickle your fancy. (Feel free to edit your wishlist post as you discover additional seeds you're interested in.)

Please only post your wishlist here. This keeps it easily searchable for everyone.

For questions/comments about wishlist items, please Tree-mail the person and, if necessary, the person who posted the item can edit their post to make a clarification. We are really good at getting off-topic, so in the interests of making the wish lists easy to search, please refrain from comments/questions on others' posts. (I may lift this requirement once all current members have created a wishlist, so the wish lists are all towards the top before we make posts. We'll see how it goes.)

I will start it off with an example of my wishlist...

Can't think of anything off the top of my head. Prefer organic veggie seeds. Flowers have to be under two feet tall and not take up too much real estate. Most native plants and wildflowers are too big for my yard. Prefer annuals to perennials.

Rick, look what you started...I'm gonna get my rubber chit-chat stick and beat you silly with it, LoL! Hilarious! Just kidding.

Not to be a pain in the you-know-what about it, Angel Whistling but please try to keep comments and other non-wishlist remarks off this thread so that it remains easily searchable for everyone. (You are welcome to use the 'seed discussion' thread to make comments, if you like; or, you may also Tree-Mail the person directly.) Rolling my eyes. As you can imagine, if someone joins later and wants to view wishlists, but they are randomly sprinkled between dozens--or, knowing us, hundreds!--of comments, it would be very difficult for them to figure out what everyone wants and what they might have to offer, so I have to be a bit of a stickler about this one.

If you are unsure how to copy comments from one thread to another, please let me know.

I'm not too picky about specific varieties, but I'm looking for butterfly host plants and nectar plants. Heat and drought tolerance is a plus. (For Zone 7b/8a.)
Diploid daylily seeds, especially small/miniature varieties.
There are already lots of veggies on the list. Now to decide... This is going to be fun!

Jessie - You and I are in the same zone. Alot of what you need I may have. I'll go hunt some things down for you. Anything that I self collected and put up will work great in your zone. I really have to have drought tolerant plants myself. Oklahoma gets mighty hot round here. This year alot burned up due to the heat. At least I did get to see them come full circle though.

Now for my wishlist. I'm not going to be picky about color, type or anything this go round. I'll simply state the flowers I like and need more of. Let's leave a little mystery and fun in things. :)

My Wishlist:

Alyssum
Butterfly Bushes
Calendulas (I have kablouna and solar flash)
Coneflowers
Cotton (Yep, the real thing folks ;) )
Daisies
Floss Flower
Foxglove
Gazania
Geraniums
Gomphrena (I do have purple and carmine though)
Lobelia (looking for a low blue creeper)
Pentas (Egyptian star flower)
Petunias
Phlox ( I do have tapestry thx to elena Smiling )
Portulaca
Rudbekia (Would really like Prairie Sun and Green Wizard)
Sedum ( I have autumn joy)
Snapdragons
Yarrow (I have paprika)
Zinnias

Herbs/Veggies:

Cilantro
Basil - Genovese, thai sweet (I tried that at lowes this year. It tastes great.)
Thyme

Amish Paste Tomatoes
A big juicy, acidic tomato that you like (needs to be able to stand the heat)
Green beans
Radishes
Carrots
Cayenne Pepper
Pepperoncini pepper


This should just about do it for me. I like unusual. I like to make myself plant something I ordinarily wouldn't. Have fun with this ya'll. :)


*Any thing else you can think or have that would be great for heat.
