Hi everyone, I would like to host my first seed swap. To join the fun, post a message here in this forum and email me for my address.

This is a seed swap for seeds of vegetables, herbs, flowers, hosta, coleus, clematis, bonsai, ornamental grasses and any other you think of.

Here are the rules:

- You can send as many packets of seed that you would like, but please no more than three packets of the same variety. If you would like to include "bonus" packets please put "bonus" on them.

- You can send any kind of seeds in the packet. If you send large seeds, put at least 10 seeds per packet, if medium at least 25 seeds per packet, if small at least 1/4 tsp seeds per packet, and if tiny at least 1/2 tsp seeds per packet or as you desire. You can always send more :)

- You can send any kind of seeds in the packet as above. Please use bubble wrapped envelope. I will reuse the envelopes sent to me.

- Enclose a return address lable and enough postage to return envelope. it will need to be at least as much as it cost to send. Please include an extra stamp for bonus packets, if possible.

- A copy of your wish list and a list of what you sent are helpful. I would try to fill as much as according to your wish list but what you get back depends on what everyone sends in.

- Be sure to put your GW name on each pack of seeds so you do not get your own seeds back.

- Deadline for mailing to me will be Nov. 28, 2006. I will return seeds the first week in Dec 2006.

- I will send you email when I receive your packets of seeds in the mail.

- I would add few bonuses with every packet.

- So Sign up today to get many seeds for coming season.

Thanks

Jasmine

    Kiki nice to have you in the group,
    I sent you an email through the group. I am not sure if it went through or not. I need your email address.

    Thanks

    I'd like to play! Sending you email now.
    Does it have to be 'named?' Cuz I have several that USED to have a name, but because of the way I (didn't) mark my garden/WS containers, they are now orphans.
    Not sure how much I'll send in, but I have several things that I know I'll have many more than I need for 07.

    Hey everyone,
    Now only 12 days left for this swap, so I think it's time to wind up the swap. Please send your seed packets as soon as possible so that it could arrive before 28th. As soon as all the seed packets arrive and if there are no new participants I will close this swap and return all the packets after 28th.

    If anybody wants to sign up please sign up now.

    Thanks

    Thanks kiki for clearing the confusion. I will wait for your seeds.

    got the seeds from Bobbie, Lisa and moonphase.

    So now waiting for two more package to arrive.

    Hey everyone,

    Today I mailed all the seeds out.

    Thank you so much for particepating and making it a great success. You all sent some great seeds. More people have particepated in the swap than I ever anticepated so I am really thankful to everybody. I tried my level best to give you all different varieties of seeds. Though it was my first swap but I hope that it would be satisfactory for everybody.

    When you receive your seeds please do not forget to post your feedback which would be very valuble for me. I am really curious to know how it went and what you all think about the seeds you receive.

    Thanks again and God bless

    hello
    I receved my seeds today, and I am very happy with them.
    I think you did a great job, the only feed-back I have is for us nuts that are in many swaps at once, is that you put the name of the swap on or in the envie. I got great seeds, a few for winter sowing!!!great!!
    thanks again for hosting
    merry christmas

    Thanks Jasmine,
    I got my seeds yesterday, great job. I had a hard time figuring out where they came from though until I went through my records. The name on the return envelope really through me, it wasn't Jasmine or any name I had traded with before, but i finely figured it out. Thanks again.

    Thank you so much for the nice comments. I am so glad that you loved the seeds I sent. It really filled me with joy.

    I am sorry for the confusion. My address lable on package will be Sheela Isaac (not Jasmine). Actually my full name is Sheela Jasmine Isaac.

    Mail delivery might be little slow because of Christmas time. Hope everybody will receive the package this week itself.

    Thanks

    Eileen,

    I am sorry to hear that you are still waiting for your seeds. I thought that all of you might have got your seeds by this time. It's really weared. I've mailed all the seeds on Dec 9th. It might be getting delayed for some reason. While I was waiting for your seed packets one packet arrived after almost 9 days of posting and it was mailed from nearby state of mine. So Let's wait for few more days (a week or two) and see what happens or I'll send you another packet.

    Is there anyone else is still waiting for seeds? Please let me know.
