In 2002 we had a 2nd baby and moved to a house with no yard to speak of. In spring 2003 I planted 3 1/2 gardens (the 1/2 being a small veggie garden next to another garden). And in 2004 I made my favorite garden, a raised-bed shade garden. Now I think I’m ready to get back into the swing of things. You guys are so great!

Thank you, fellow GWebbers, for being a grand source of information and encouragement. :)


I don’t do Paypal. My trading budget comes out of our postage budget. Therefore, if I’m trading plants for postage, please send me a check (which I can put back into our postage budget) or stamps.

I do answer all emails, even if the answer is "no," but it may take me a while. I’m not online every day. I personally think it’s rude to ignore inquiries, so don’t be alarmed; I will respond.

I generally prefer to do large trades--meaning at least 5 plants (depending on size, etc.). Given the high cost of mailing, it just doesn’t make sense to me to send/receive just a few plants at a time. As is true of most of us, I see no point in putting in the time and effort to dig and pack plants and then spending more on postage than I would if I simply went out and bought the plant(s) in the first place.

As is true of most GW traders, I pack my trade plants well and I mail them via Priority Mail.

If there is a problem when your plants arrive, please let me know. I do try to be a good trader. However, if I don’t know it’s "broke," I sure can’t fix it!

Happy Trading... and Happy Gardening!
