    Michelle, I am so excited for my seeds. I must tell you that I have loved the way you have run this swap. Very clear instructions up front. Lots of updates to keep us informed. A tremendous effort on your part and I appreciate it...even before I receive my packet.

    Thanks again!

    I also wanted to start today but its pretty warm here :/ high of 65 tomorrow so I think I'm gonna wait till Tuesday when the temps are suppose to go down and stay around 20-30 something. Omg, I have been saving tons of different containers from coworkers and family to use!! I have lots of new seeds to try( and more coming) thanks to a few swaps and a few round robins I'm participating in!! Also a noob to round robins so I'm trying with what seeds I do have this year! It's been a bad year so I'm hoping for good experiences this year!(and lots of flowers!) ~Michael

    I am looking for lots of things, mostly flowers. One exception is that I would like to try growing Wild Leeks (Ramps)this year. If anyone has any bloodroot or Silene Jack Flash that would be great. I realize people are less likely to have these, but I thought I would mention them on the outside chance someone does!

    UPDATE: No Limit Plant Swap #4

    Q

    Comments (150)
    Ok a couple new request from left overs.... Fran- other offer of your purple emperor (2) Vina - 4 of your royal standard hosta Theresa - Iochroma Australe Callisia Fragrans -2 passiflora Morifia - 2 add me on for 2 extra hydrangea cuttings (better success rate hopefully:-) Robin - I would love your spider plants. I just wanted to give everyone else a chance at them first because I have the varigated ones but no babies yet. spider plants 3 1 extra paw paw Amy ferns - 2 jade plant 2 Cindy - Poinsetta Auntyara 1 creeping forgetme nots 2 pink spirea (if you have an extra you didn't give a number so I am not sure) BTW - I am so excited about your aster. I love them and have been wanting them for a while! OK everyone I will be updating the site again with this mornings request. We will be shipping in just another week and I am sooo excited! Everyone should start making their lables for the plants. LABELING TIP - you should use something that can go straight in the ground so that when everyone recieved their box they can go straigt to planting. So many did this in the last swap and it made it so much easier. I will be doing this this time also for all of you. I saw old milk cartons, yogart containers, old plant lables etc.. (cut into strips) Plastic is best for this with a paint pen so it last longer (until everyone can 'officially' lable them all) Me and my daugter paint rocks with the name of the plant on the underside and we put them where ever the plant is. The know better than to move them. hehehe. A lot of the ones that wrote on paper/tape a lot of them got smeared and you couldn't read them because of the moisure. Tammy:-) Anyone else have any tips?? I have been doing a ton of swaps but am still learning things as I go.

    Michelle, you are just plain amazing! And to find an interested trader at the P.O. to boot - my P.O. people are terrific, but they always look at me with mild amusement when I tell them those big fat packages are garden seeds.

    I recommend wine, a hot scented bath (and some warm fuzzies to put on afterward), a good book, and a big inward grin for a job well done!

    goodmorning
    I'm so glade to hear some have made it already.
    you know when I do a swap I set aside all the seeds I get/pick and I don't plant or sort them till I get all the envies out(this is to encourage myself to do if quickly)
    so last night I went through and sorted my seeds into piles of sow indoors-winter sow-vegies sowen indoors-vegies direct sow-direct sow flowers
    then I seperate all the indoors sowables(both vegie and flower) into baggies for which week I want to sow them.
    I started with march 1st for herbs, toms, peppers, and maples
    and week by week till I got to april 21st is dhalias, zinnias, cosmos
    and may 1st pupmkins, water melons, and squach

    I compleatly emptied my seed trunk and am shocked by the number of seeds I have gathered this year. but I will get them all planted or else.

    hello
    miss drippy I did take a long hot bubble bath last night, and after sorting all those seeds I had dreams about plants, funny huh?
    I got my march 1st seeds planted today( I thought it was close enough)
    the second week of march I'm doing several walk throughs of my plant room and showing the gardeners at the community garden and local master gardeners how to start their seeds indoors. so far I only have 3 signed up but the e-mail only went out last night, I'm a little nervus about having people over to see my plant set up, I think it is great but some people may not. I just want to show them how easy it is to start the basic vegies at home.

    I received my seeds today I was so excited I can't wait to sow them!! Thank you so much for a great swap, Michelle. Thank you, Drippy for the lavender crepe myrtle! Also received dutchmans pipe and devils claw I am thrilled plus a lot of really great seeds. We were on our way out and I grabbed the mail and there was my envie. My oldest son had to go to Bestbuy and I didn't go in I wanted to look inside my envie and touch my seed packets and my husband picks out one of the envies "what does that say that looks like your handwriting" It was a pack of seeds I sent into
    a round robin that I was in from 6 months ago lmao I guess nobody wanted those seeds. I was tickled that the seeds made it all the way back to me I guess it was meant to be. I will never forget this swap hehehe

    Got it!
    Thanks Michelle- such joy to see the envelope in my mailbox.
    Pls don't think me ungrateful or ungracious, but I'm going to offer up many of what you gave me.
    You see, I only can do about 5 at most, and your generosity overwhelmed and you sent me many more.
    I can't throw them away!

    Michelle,

    I received my seeds today thank you so much. A big palm size thank you for my surprize:) I love everything and what ever I can't plant this year I will plant next year. I am sorry to say that I am way too stingy to share my seeds with anyone. Maybe after I have held them and looked at them for a year and then still can't find a place for them only then will I consider sharing. Maybe.

    Hi Michelle and everyone, my seeds came today, and I want to thank each person that sent in seeds, my gardens will ROCK for the next few seasons, from all the lovely seeds I recd.

    Poisondartfrog, I have to thank you for my "hairyballs" I beleive we will have lots of laughs this summer AND I am so excited that the cats like to eat them. Thanks for yet again sharing with me.

    Chell, thanks for the seeds I wanted..they are getting sown ASAP. You are always soo generous, thanks !

    I know I requested hosta from someone...thanks for remembering, I will enjoy them.

    Rosepedal, I am going to get the adenium seeds growing today, thanks for being so generous..you have made it possible for me to grow something I wouldnt be able to afford otherwise.

    and I could go on and on........Michelle, thanks for all your hard work, AND for your friendship ! I am looking forward to seeing you back in CHAT !!

    Thanks for making my growing season so special...GW gardeners are just the best.

    Kym your welcome...Soak the adeniums a minium of four hours before planting... Plant them in wet soil drenched with heat and lights. Once they sprout keep the heat and lights otherwise they just sit there. Kinda like me today...Lol Really they will stop growing with no heat and lights...You should see some of the bellys I have on them..They are cracking me up...I will be trading some of these plants off this spring...I think I went overboard.hahhaha Good luck Kym keep us posted on them...Barb

    Wow!! ... HHmmmmm- Nice!! ... Yesssssss!!
    Those are just some of the words that keep running through my head, as my fingers run through the seeds you all sent in- and were hand selected for me! (ok- Michele hand selected for everyone- she did a great job- and it sure shows!)
    A very BIG THANKS for all of you sharing such treasures- and especially to you Michelle for hosting- this has been a great swap- with great folks and great seeds!
    Happy gardening to you!

    hello everyone
    I had a bad day today, we had to put down my Charlie(my 12 year old collie) he just had too many health problems, and was in pain. the boys are taking it well, it is very strange, he was my shadow for so many years now I feel alone.
    please don't feel sorry for me, it is part of having pets, I learned from a very young age.
    don't worry drippy your not the last one, yours was kinda heavy, I think it went parsel post.

    Michelle, I am sorry for you anyway - yes, it's part of having pets, but they are a part of the family. My Drippy is a 10-year-old Newfie, and I will be very sorry the day she is no longer with us. I am sending hugs your way.

    I never worry about seeds - egad, I have so many, I can plant into the next millenium. I am certain they will arrive - we had really ugly (ice and snow) weather here today, so I wasn't expecting to see the mail person. But if they went parcel post, it may be a few days yet - LOL, I think it may be a few weeks before we see the ground around here, so no worries.

    Hello Michelle and Fellow Gardeners!

    I received my seeds as well...yippeeee! I am *very* pleased with the selection, and I will happily join next year. : )

    Thanks so much for your time, energy, and sharing!
    Sincerely,
    Jodi B.

    Wow. Wow. WOW!!! Michelle and everybody, THANK YOU!! What a lovely package of goodies I received today. One or two outstanding? One or two??? Would you believe 99%? I have a "Seeds I Have" file in the word processor that is, no lie, 50 pages single-spaced - so what I want to know, Michelle, is how did you know how to send back so many things I don't already have? It boggles my mind.

    Let's see - I am, of course, thrilled with the Kosteletzkya you sent, Divahethr - it was my #1 most wanted seed. Although the plant hardiness for this plant says z5-9, I've never been able to get it to come back in my zone 6 yard. I'm moving to a zone 7, so I'll hopefully have better luck there - in any case, I will do more research to try to get it right. It's always germinated well for me, just never come back.

    Other special goodies: the Bill Wallace geranium (thanks, Julie!), the primulas, the aquilegias I didn't have (and I have a LOT) - I could go on and on, but I just want to say that this swap was a blast, and thanks to everyone! :D

    aww you're so welcome, Drippy. I'm kind of sad this swap is at the end I don't know why I just want to say I didn't ask for anything but I was able to erase stuff off my wants list ...awesome!

    hello
    well I hope the rest make it home by the end of the week. you know drippy I guess it is just a gift I have, I print/write a list of what people are looking for and just try to pop as many of their fav/wanted seeds in the envie, or things like it. but after the first 10 or 12 envies come in I get a little lost in the lists and just start looking and saying I think they will go ....here, maybe not a gift so much as dumb luck. LOL

    we are doing better my mother in law said she wanted us to have her new standard poodle puppy, she is a dream and the boys love going over to the house and playing with her. her name is pearl but I think I'm gonna rename her Ruby(Miss Ruby Star) or shasta (Miss Shasta Daisy). my oldest, Timmy is very excited to have her. she is 4 months old and very active, my mother in law just can't keep up with her, she and the boys will do a great job of running each other out. I would not have gotten a new dog so soon, but I rilly like her and could never afford to get a champion line pup by my self, I may evan show her.
    well obviously I have not been able to sleep of I would not be typing at 2am, rilly there is nothing else to do this time of night.
