Exchanging Seeds

Postby seedling » 07 Nov 2012, 07:03

I've send seeds to several folks who loved to exchange also..
now making it a topic/thread :D

Plant and tree seeds hold at least one to 4yrs is my experience.
I have for you:
- bellpepers
- red point bell pepper, more sweet
- tomato
- rocket lettuce, wild arugola (even deeper tasting)
- pumpkin
- zuchinni
- red pomelo/grapefruit
- apple (forgot to write down the name, but I prefer sour/fresh apples)
- sunflowers

This months I'll be getting some seeds from someone in germany.. Also just wonderful colourful flowers.
When i have those, I'll let you know if it is enough to share & share alike :D

Love, Seeds

What a lovely idea! This morning I was planning how to make our modest balcony into a lush vegetable garden next season!

They surely are. what was really odd was even as I went to gather the seeds (though Rick did most of it) there were still bees so I had to keep running away. You can lob these in plain soil, tilthed down and they will grow pretty much anywhere.....lovely silver green foliage as well, but they do need "standing up" help cos they are prone to flop.
