    Hi Lime You can post what you want here or in a note enclosed with your seeds. You don't need to post what you are sending. I will also check your trade lists, so be sure thay are updated. As long as you can get seeds in by end of September you can join this swap. I agree the swaps with more people are the best! I started an update on this swap in this forum.. I will post there when I receive your seeds. You can also post there with any questions or to post your wants. I think it's a good idea to post your wants here...that way everyone can see them and they might have what you are looking for that they might not have sent in otherwise. Chris

    Happy Holidays, Everyone,

    I received my seeds on Christmas Eve, which was a lovely present. I opened them Christmas night, and found some very nice things: Oriental poppies, Christmas tree seeds (how cute!), dianthus, feverfews, chocolate Joe Pye, etc. Thanks so much to Willy and all of the generous gardeners!!!

    Merry Christmas,

    I still have not received mine.Is there any one else waiting? Maybe tomorrow...........
    moonphase

  • drippy
    15 years ago

    Yeah, Moonphase - but no worries - Willy is one of the all-time best swappers. Last year he started a swap just before the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in his area. Despite having to relocate for awhile, he pulled it off.

    There were a LOT of signups for this swap, more than for TGS I think - and Willy doesn't have a pile of rules the way I do, LOL. He does a good job sorting, too - if I had to wait a year for my return seeds (which I know I won't!), they'd be worth waiting for.

  • godsgarden9

    Just a note... I still am finishing the last of the packages, these are the largest packages, so take more time, to provide the best assortment, hopefully within a week the last of the packages will be out, thanks for your patience, and your participation. Will hopefully see many of you again in the spring.. have a blest 2008, Willy-godsgarden9.

    Hi All,
    I received my seed package today. Thanks to you all for the wonderful varieties! And a special thanks to you Willy for hosting! Hope you all have a Blessed year!...Marylee

  • Julie
    15 years ago

    Hey there Moonphase-
    I wanted to let you know that you are not alone in not receiving seeds from Willy yet- I too am patiently waiting for their arrival in my mail box. I sent in a bunch of seeds and asked for far less back- and I hope he reads this here post cuz I really do not want as many back as I sent in!!
    It is a HUGE swap and a HUGE amount of time is spent sorting seeds! I hosted a much smaller swap- and it took about 50 man hours of sorting to get through it all! I know how much work it is- and am hoping Willi is taking some time to enjoying himself- even with working so hard to get through them all!
    I am choosing to look at this way- as with most things in life- the best things are worth waiting for!
    Hope it helps to know- you are not waiting all alone....

  • moonphase

    After reading Willys post,I just had a big sigh of relief.He is still working on some,so mine is probably sitting happily in LA,getting filled with lots of good goodies.Drippy,I didn't have a single worry about Willy .I do worry about lost seeds or delayed seeds.I had a trade that I sent out in Oct. and she received them 1 month later.Then I sent seeds to another trader and right before I was going to have to send replacement seeds,she got them.My mail has been crazy for some reason,so when I think my seeds are on the way,I start pacing,lol.
    I will surely be in Willys spring swap.All the swaps I have been in have just been way above awesome this year.Now,have to go get busy and pack up some more theme seeds.:-)

    I received my seeds right before Christmas and was so excited to get them! I've finally had a chance to sort through them all and do some research and am so happy with my loot!

    Thank you so much!!!

  • drippy
    15 years ago

    Wowee! What a great selection arrived in my mailbox today - Willy, how do you do it? Just when I think I have everything, I get some gorgeous new varieties to try - and yep, I had to go look some of them up, too. Whoopee! I am doing the happy dance here.

    Next year, I'd like an additional 10 acres of planting space...

    :) God bless you, Willy!
