Welcome to the Blue Barn Summer 2018 Lightning Swap for FLOWERS ONLY (up to 20 varieties of herbs maybe be listed with minimum of 50 varieties of seeds)!

I hope this seed will help fill in some of those "swap withdrawl symptoms" and know that you all are busy in your gardens, so we made this a one-day swap.

Please keep a watchful eye on this topic in case important information becomes available.

IMPORTANT Things to remember as you pack and list your items:

FLOWERS ONLY - No house plants unless they bloom.

No veggies, please (other swaps do/will encompass those)

I will also allow a listing of 20 packs of herbs that flower (per person), so they fit into our flower category.

Limit of 5 packs per any item/variety that you are listing, please.

No seeds older than 2015; seeds from 2015 or before should be clearly noted in comments.

Please package your seeds in plastic ziploc type craft bags with label or a piece of paper inside that one can clearly see the information. PLEASE DO NOT write in marker on the plastic ziplocs. This rubs off very easily in handling, then the identity of the seed is unknown.

This is not a dumping ground for seeds you're trying to get rid of. The more interesting things you list, the more you'll sell and garner MORE tickets to buy with.

Please be as generous with your amounts per seed pack as possible. I pack what I would like to receive.
Of course if you are buying commerically and dont get many seeds to share, this is understandable; and/or if the seed is rare/exotic.

We've been messaging vs. posting on the board, it's a small group and so I wanted to make sure you all saw the messages/info given it's summer and we're probably alot busier in the garden and life these days.

The swap is tomorrow night, Saturday 8/4.

I am setting the tickets at 90, which means you will be able to dib 90 packs of seeds max.

This being a lightening round, the seed trading will be fast and furious once the trading starts.

Check your local times, but I am Eastern time (Boston) and swap starts for me at 8pm.

Let's have some fun and get some great seeds to grow!

Dont forget to put your address in the swap info, and when you send your swap seeds, please put your NGA name as well as your REAL name. I know most of you, but want to make sure I'm sending the right seeds to the right person :D Ran into a problem last time I hosted with a couple people with similar first names who I really didnt know well so that held up the seeds til I got responses.
