Old Seed Giveaway - Everyone Welcome

jeanne
14 years ago

Hi Everybody!

I got tired of writing people to tell them my last offer was for newbies only, especially since

I have A LOT of seed I'd like to clean out of my storage area. So this offer is open to anybody

interested.

Here's how this works: Leave a message here or send me an email to get my address. I'll need

you to send a bubble mailer, postage, your GW member name, and a list of seeds you want.
PUT YOUR WISH LIST IN THE BUBBLE MAILER!


With this many packages coming and going I need your list in my hand when I fill your package.

I will send up to a dozen packs, but send a longer wish list because I will be filling envelopes

in the order in which they were received. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED! I will update the list as

I go to remove items I run out of and add more items as I run across them, so scroll down for updates.

Here is my current list:

Abelmoschus manihot

Abelmoschus muschuetos

Allium aflatuense

Allium senescens

Allium tauricum yellow

Amsonia tabernaemontana

Arnoglossum reniforme

Callirhoe involucata

Campanulastrum americana

Canna Red Spike

Canna plain green w/small red flowers

Castor Beans Carmencita

Chrysopsis marilandica

Coreopsis tripteris

Cosmos, sulfer

Cryptotaenia japonica atropurpurea (weedy)

Digitalis lutea

Echinops ritro

Eryngium planum

Euphorbia marginata

Eupatorium coelestinum, Blue Mist Flower

Eupatorium rugosum Chocolate Joe Pye Weed

Geranium pyreniacum var. alba

Hieracium maculatum Chocolte Dip (weedy)

Hibiscus moscheutos white w/red eye

Hosta, assorted varieties mostly minis

Ipomoea purpurea "Flaked" (trade is 10 seeds)

Ipomoea hederacea

Iris pseudacorus white w/burgundy markings (weedy)

Iris Ceaser's Brother

Iris tectorum

Lavendula angustifolia

Lobelia siphilitica purple

Lobelia siphilitica White Candles

Malva Bibor Felho

Malva Zebrina

Myrrhis odorata

Nicotiana sylvestris

Oenothera glazioviana Tina James

Osmorrhiza claytonia

Penstemon smallii Violet Dusk

Penstemon Husker Red

Rudbeckia fulgida var. sulvantii

Rudbeckia hirta mixed hybrids

Scrophularia marilandica

Salvia virgata

Salvia farinacea

Solidago Fireworks

Teucrium hyrcanicum

Thymophlla

Trifolium rubens

Verbascum phoenicium white

Verbascum phoenicium Rosetta

X Pardancanda norrisii

Zea mays japonica (trade is 10 seeds)

I also have these fresh, ephemeral seeds that need homes:

Anemone japonica Pamina

Thalictrum dasycarpus

Thalictrum flavum ssp. glaucus

Thalictrum pubescens

Thalictrum rochbruniacum

Please be patient with me as I expect this is going to turn into a massive undertaking. I'll update

here about envelopes coming and going, and if the response is too much to handle at once, how

far down the list I've gotten in contacting people. I figure if I average a package a day, I have

enough seed to go all winter. :)

Thanks for your interest,

Jeanne

    Yours will go out today.

    I've got a seed update as well. I'm out of Anemone Pamina and Iris tectorum. The Teucrium is going fast, still have a few packs left. I have these to add to the list:

    Campanula rotundifolia
    Iris sanguinea
    Platycodon grandiflorus, blue
    Prenanthes trifoliata
    Saponaria officinalis

    And I still have plenty of everything else.

    I'd just like to make a comment here. I read all the time about how much trouble these offers are, how nobody wants to follow the rules and how frustrating it can be for the host. I'd just like to say what a pleasure it has been to work with everyone here. I've been touched by the kindness of people who have sent extra stamps and thoughtful notes, Judy sent a ton of seed envelopes that I'm using on this giveaway. I really appreciate how easy this all has gone and how nice you all have been.

    I have the best BEAPers ever!

    Amy- do you think the petasites would not spread if I planted them inside a pot or put a deep border around the area? If so, I'd like to try one. Also, Kathy asked if I'd keep my eyes open for lilies for her- I guess they cleared out a tree and she wants to fill the area with lilies. If you find yourself with too many and want to clear some out, I'd be happy to transport some to her. OK, so one last time on the list- please if I left anyone out, let me know- I'll check one more time before leaving tomorrow.

    Diane, What you experienced with the "Grow Your Own Soup" seeds is exactly what many others who received the tomato seeds experienced---very poor germination, if any germination at all. I suspect they sent out old seed or seed that had not been stored properly because nothing else would explain why so many experienced gardeners had such bad germination. Carol, I'm not surprised the seed went so quickly. When I saw it on The Today Show, I was on SOC's website within 1 minute, trying to beat the crowd before they gave away all the seed. Then I came here and posted about it so anyone who saw that thread could beat the crowd too. Jo, You're welcome. It was my pleasure to be able to share news of this wonderful deal with everyone here. Like you, I hope the seed went to real gardeners who will use it, and not to people who will just put the seed on Ebay and sell it or something. I assume SOC got tons of free 'advertising' out of this. Dawn

I would like your Malva Bibor Felho, rudbeckia hirta mixed hybrids, Thymophila, digitalis lutea.
