Hi Kennyso, thankyou for starting this topic. And here are the rules so no one has to go looking for them in past posts.

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!

I have until the end of the month so there is still plenty of time to enjoy everyones comments. I had to packages come in yesterday they were from jmorrrris and Sibyl. I haven't opened them or started their paperwork but I probably will this evening.

I was up early this morning working on church stuff. I can't believe how long it takes. Our stuff is so much quicker. To bad the ward doesn't have a forum.

I got njoynit's box today. I'm so excited. I can't wait until she looks in.

HEY NJOYNIT!!!!! What is my plant please please tell me what my plant is, PLEASE.......

I immediately dropped everything and planted it in one of my pretty pots. I put gravel in my potting soil cause it looks like a succulent. I hope I'm not wrong on that.

Because I watered it. It lost it's large leaves they got broken in transit. But the root and the stem look to be fine.

I am just so excited. Thankyou njoynit. It's a great present.

Did postal lose the post it note too?I stuck it on a leaf Its an Epi you can see the blooms over in cacti/succulant forum.May have to go back to sept?Its blooms are fragrant.I knew you wanted one.You can pot up the broke pieces in the pot and they'll sprout.They like to be pot bound.I have mine in a hanging basket.I moved mine into something sturdier cause the leaves you'll be growing will add weight....and they can break them plastic hangers(hence why it got repoted...does not stay on branches if have a gust of 27 MPH....just ask the plant.)I made sure you got a section that will bloom this year.I knew you wanted one.It will grow faster its 2nd& 3rd year.bright light,or the stems will sunburn red(like mine did)protect from frost but can tolerate cold temps.Good draineage is good,I use cactis mix. its gritty.I'll send you the fertilzer mix I use.I gotta check my dinner.It smells good though.
you found your brug seeds with postage right?

I'm SOO sorry you had to wait 2 days to find out............I been fishing.I really would not mind a laptop....just to take fishing.I did catch 4 yesterday& caught 6 today.I just wish everyone would keep not needing me for this& that.I just want to fish.....with no kid telling me every 5 minutes'your bobber moved....your bobber moved'I swear the lake got a breeze cause he was talking THAT much............

Everyone don't forget I got the plant/cutting exchange started.

Hi Tammy,

I sent another pack of seeds to you....postage included with my address label.

I will have one more package to send in about a week or 10 days, but thought you might appreciate having some more seeds to work with, sooner rather than later.

Hi Njoynit, It's an EPI!!!!! I'm so excited. I immediately moved it because I had it in an east facing window. Hope I didn't do to much damage. I'll have to get some cactus potting soil I'm out right now. I wish I had known about the leaves. They got tossed and the garbage man has already come. I'm afraid the brug and the post it know are casualties of the postal service. They put a big hole in the package and I think opened it because there was clear postal tape on top of the masking tape on one end. But I could just be paranoid. Thankyou for the EPI. Your right I had wanted one for a long time.

Hi Kennyso, I think I just got one package. But I'll make sure and check.

Hey Partygirl, Thankyou for your seeds. It is such a nice selection.

Good Morning Triss, Don't worry about 2/3rds of the group haven't sent there's in yet so you are not alone.

I am thinking about sending out the canadian packages soon since it takes them so long to cross the border.

Hey Kennyso,

That just shows how excited you were to get them out. I'll look forward to seeing them arrived.
