    I have seeds for "chineese beans." My sister-in-law is Thi, that's what she calls them. They look like yard long beans maybe? She grows them from the beans she grew the summer before. She gave me some and I liked them, so I got some seeds. I don't have very many now, but I will later in the summer. These plants need a tall trellis, but SIL grows thim in her small suburban backyard so they'll fit in a small space. and produce a lot of beans. You have to twist the beans off so you don't knock the blooms off for the next pods. We stir fry them and they are crunchy and delicious. She also has peach trees she starts from seedlings from trees in her yard. So far 4 of them, and the peaches are deliious for eating fresh, canning and freezing. This is zone 7

    I'd like heirloom tomatoes of any kind, any kind of flower seed, I like large zinnias. I'd like hardneck garlic bulbs, if anybody has any. I'd also like to have some lilly of the valley pips, daylilies (any color other than orange, but orange accepted) and any color of Iris tuber. I love Iris. Please tell me if you've got double hollyhock seeds!

    Can you start hibiscus from seed? SIL has some that are gorgeous and I want some.

    Most hibiscus you can start just by taking a cutting and sticking it in the ground! They grow like that very easily and you might add some root grow or some such similar product, but it's really not necessary. Try one cutting and see how they do for your area! We transplanted them in Florida all the time!

    Would love some of those seeds to try them. But I'm not sure what I have to trade.... Hubby puts the seeds somewhere in the dark so let me check and I can maybe work something out!

    :D
    Thanks! Joellen

    I have a clump of siberian iris that makes seeds, and I have a few left if you would like to trade for the beans. I also have 3 hardy hibiscus in the yard that were started last year from seed, supposed to bloom this year, we'll see :D

    I am interested in some sugar beet seeds. I would buy them from you. I also would like to have some directions on how to process this stuff so that I could use if for sweeteners. Thanks,
    Renee
