Hello, am kinda new here, but am enjoying myself quite a lot. Where do you put the list of plants or seeds you have for trade? Thanks

Hi & welcome!

When you look up a plant in the database, there's a navy blue button for each one that says "add to my list." From there, you can indicate if it's a plant you have, want, or had in the past. Once added, you can add notes to each entry, and add desired plants to sub-lists, like a trade list. I have a for-postage list set-up in my profile if you'd like to see it.

That blue "add to my list" button is way down near the bottom of each Database entry.

After you use the Plant Database to make "YOUR Plant List", you can join seed swaps. Then you can go through "YOUR Plant List" and push a button that looks like a "recycling" icon to add that plant to "Your SWAP List". That's a good time to record how many packets you want to offer to that swap, approximate size of packet, and notes like "year harvested" and color, or what vendor you bought them from and what year they were packed for.

That sounds complicated, but once you get to the screen where the button is, all you have to do is click for each item, and add notes like "how many packets" and "year".

The actual trading in a seed swap is much easier than creating your swap list.

Once you have created one swap list, it works for any NGA seed swap. Just edit Your SWAP List so the number of packets offered in each swap is what you want. You can delete offers up until a swap starts and someone has already requested that packet. You can add offers any time.

Here's the Seed Swap Home Page (you can also get there by clicking on "Seed Swaps" in the far-left blue menu bar that I hear is going to go away soon ...
