It's that time of year again!
If there is enough interest we will have a spring Fling Round Robin seed Exchange!
So let me know if your in the mood and if so...dig into those boxes of seeds, and start packing them up!
The deadline for mailing your seeds is March 23rd.

RULES

1. Please try to put at least 20 seeds per pack. seed packets need to have the name of the seed on them. If english/american is your second language you may want to use the scientific/botanical name for the plant. That makes it easier to find in english. Other nice things to have on the envelope that are not necessary are USDA growing zones if known, growing conditions (sun vs. shade, ph if unusual, if it needs light to germinate) your screen name. These things are not necessary. Send a pack of seeds that you would be happy receiving!

2. Mail your seeds no later than March 23rd.

3. Send a wishlist of the seed you would like with the understanding that I'll do my best but can't guarantee that you will get what you hope for. As regards wishlist, these can be as specific or as general as you would like or you don't have to do one at all. Or they can be a combination. For example I'm looking for tropical plants to grow indoors since I don't have a garden patch anymore. That's rather general. But I am also looking for Dutchman's Pipe. Now that is specific. So I could put both of them on my wish list. It just helps me to select which seeds to send you when I have a very wide selection to chose from.

4. Send a SASBE (self-addressed stamped bubble envelope) with your seeds. Please make sure you have enough return postage on the envelope.

5. Please limit the maximum number of seed packs per envelope to 100. Multiple mailings are ok!
6. I will do my best to get your seeds to you by April 15th.
7. Please limit same seed types to a maximum of 25 seed packets. For example if you are sending in Blue Columbines please don't send in more than 25 packets of this type. But you could also send in 25 Red Columbines in the same envelope and that would be great.

NOTICE! All seed packs will be cataloged.
If you send weed seeds we will be able to track who they came from, and you will be banned from participating in future seed swaps, and your name will be posted in the seed Exchange forum as a "risk"!

If you'd like to participate in this Swap, please PM Tammy (tkhooper) for her address to mail your seeds.

Let the spring Fling Round Robin seed Exchange BEGIN!

BTW if anyone wants to pm me there wish list in advance of there seeds arriving that worked really well last time. So if you want to please do.

Last time some people could have gotten things on there list if I had, had the lists sooner. I send out seeds as I get a good selection of seeds for people who have already sent theirs in. That way I don't have a thousand seed packets in the apartment all at one time.

There are definitely pro's and con's for each way of doing it. Anyway, if you want to pm me with your wishlist please do.

OH, AND DON'T SEND ENVELOPES I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH TO COVER THIS seed EXCHANGE. JUST REMEMBER TO SEND THE STAMPS AND YOUR ADDRESS WITH THE seeds.

Well I have a few things on my list. They are the very unlikely things but you never know.

Also don't forget to let your friends know about the Fling. I'm definitely going to let our local garden club know. They are a group of wonderful women and I'm hoping some will join.
