Fall CG Seed Swap: October 31st deadline

17 years ago

The other post about the seed swap reminded me that I should probably post the deadline!

This year the deadline will be October 31st. That means I need to have your seeds in hand by that date. Please please please mail them to me before the deadline.

There is one stipulation: this year I am asking that no one mail their seeds to me before October 8th. I will be on my honeymoon and unable to check our mail. I don't want all of your seeds sitting in my mailbox roasting. So please wait until the 8th to mail them out.

There are no rules for the swap per-se. Here is the overview I posted last year:


"For those of you that are new or didn't see this before, a little explaination. Save seeds from your cottage garden flowers, shrubs, herbs, etc. Put aproximately 25 seeds in a seed packet. Include the name of the plant (both common and latin, if known), sun requirements, and hardiness information on the packet. You can also include any other information you have or feel like sharing. Be sure to put your GardenWeb name on the packet in case a recipient has a question about the seeds.

Then, take all of your little seed packets and put them in a padded envelope. Include an extra padded envelope that is addressed to yourself and includes the same amount of postage that you put on the outside envelope (this will be for return journey of your new seeds).

You may also include a brief want/wish list. Just jot down (legibly please!) on a piece of paper three seeds you would like to receive the most. I will try to fulfill at least one of everyone's wishes, depending on the seeds that are in the swap.

And, if possible, please include an extra stamp for the return journey of seeds to our non-American friends who would like to participate (Eduarda, Ann, etc.).

To obtain my address, please go to my member profile and email me. Title your email "CG Seed Swap" or something similar so I know what it's about."


Veggie and herb seeds are more than welcome to include as well. And if you have any other questions, feel free to ask me when you email me for my address.

Happy seed saving!
