    We have a STICKY for seed and plant exchange.
    I fear it may become STALE and so in order to keep people a little more interested, I will UNSTICKY the thread at the end of each month and begin a FRESH one,

    You will need to re-POST your SWAP items each month----

    and that way we will all know if you still have what you have, or that you still want what you have previously requested.

    I am looking for succulent cuttings that I can use to make living wreaths for gifts for Christmas. I would love to have a large variety. They do not need to be rooted.

    I can trade lettuce seeds (I have a large variety) or water hyacinth plants (I have a limited number of those).

    I also have access to many tropical plant seeds to use for indoor plants since I live in Hawaii.

    Email me at heather@seraphimforge.com if you have cuttings available or have other questions.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Heather

    Ok, I have some seeds that I never got to plant this season & probably never will ;) They were all bought from reputable Heirloom companies. I am in Zone 5b so trade with things that will survive that please if not annuals.

    Flowers:
    Amaranthus 'Love-Lies-Bleeding' a.caudatus
    Zinnia 'Cactus-Flowered Mix'
    Sweet Pea 'Eckford's Finest Mix'
    Sweet Pea 'Captain of the Blues'
    Cypress Vine 'Cardinal Climber' ipomoea (quamoclit)
    Balsam 'Impatiens Balsamina Mix'
    Black-Eyed Susan Vine, Thunbergia

    Fruit/Veg:
    Melon 'Hale's Best Jumbo'
    Beet 'Chioggia'

    That's what I can find, not quite organised yet! I will follow the others lead & mail 10 seeds of each until they run out....I don't have a whole lot, just 1 pack of each. I will trade these for heirlooms/non-hybrid only....absolutely no GE or whatever! Herbs & veggies, interesting heirloom-variety flowers .

    Farmmaid I got the seeds! Thank you!!!!

    I'm looking for brugmansia and datura (devil's and angel's trumpets), also any kind of hollyhock!

    (I had some real nice brugmansia seedlings started last winter -- 'Ballerina,' I think they were -- and my husband's darned pot-bellied piglet knocked the flat off the shelf and rooted them into oblivion. GRRRRRRR! So, I'd like to try again next year!)

    Stuff I have to trade:

    Variegated lunaria (money plant)
    Petunia (mixed)
    Foxglove (mixed)
    Lychnis (a deep carmine pink variety)
    Lamb's ear (Stachys byzantina)
    Pink mallow (malva fastigiata)
    Purple coneflower
    Pumpkin (small pie variety)
    Sheepnose peppers (small very prolific red bell)

    Willow girl, I posted about echinacea/hollyhock seeds on another thread.....but I could get you all the sheepnose seeds you want from the farm I help at. They wouldn't be fermented is the only thing, just fresh. Aren't those the best peppers ever? The kids and I eat them like apples.

    Have airplane plant starts. Like the spider plant, but solid grass green, no stripe. Most of my starts are already heavily rooted and ready for soil. They like being outside in summer, but I love them hanging about in the house during winter so I always bring them in with my other plants. Don't know how winter hardy they are, they do great down to about 45*F. They are heat tolerant, with thick rope like roots. I've also grown them in plain water in a window for years at a time.

    Would like to trade for other house plants.

    Looking for a start of "hairy" hens and chicks, but almost any variety of these are also welcome.

    I'm in Zone 6, SW Missouri.

    The Sheepnose peppers (sometimes called pimentoes) are really funny shaped but have the thickest meat of any pepper we've had. I haven't tried pickling any, which is what they are usually used for, because there aren't ever that many left. I'm planning to only plant them for sweets next year. You should definately try them!

    Cara, I have sheepnose peppers to trade! Grew 'em for the first time this year. I must admit I just picked them out of a catalog because of their name (I have sheep!). They're great! They're not very big, but the plants are very prolific. The red color is a pretty contrast with green peppers, purple onion, and red and yellow tomatoes in salsa. :)

    I would like some commonly used herbs like
    basil,
    parsley,
    thyme,
    oregano,
    sage,
    rosemary,
    cumin


    Also chili pepper seeds.


    I have to trade:
    From my garden:
    Bloody butcher corn seeds (best corn bread you ever tasted!)
    Snow white Cherry tomato (actually yellow, and very tasty)
    Banana melon which may have crossed with Tigger melon
    Golden Jenny Melon


    Seeds left over from this year:
    Phenomenal Sweet Corn Hybrid. (great tasting sweet corn, pretty too, but I'm not going to grow hybrids anymore)

    Also a few loofah gourd seeds from a dried out loofah gourd my aunt found in her garage. Could be a few years old. I'm not sure how long they stay good. I imagine they are good for a while.

    Also mallard ducks that a certain mama duck sneakly brooded after the other two clutches she sneakly brooded this year. :no: :D

    Willowgirl, Did the hollyhocks come? There was a gal in Hawaii named Heather that asked for some, too, and I haven't heard form her, so I was wondering if my pm is busted.

    Thanks and Aloha!
