default Seed Swap Anybody?

Post by MrsNesbitt on 19th November 2009, 9:08 am

Well it is that time of the year when our thoughts start turning to next year in the garden. The seed catalogues will be arriving and our thoughts turn to Spring!

Anybody fancy a seed swap?

Basically if you do, just say so here & I'll organise it.

Oh heavens, have not even thought about seed catalogues yet. Better do that really.
I'd be up for going on the swap list though.

I don't yet have anything to swap - but hope that if this one is a success then there'll be a second next year!

Count me in, please
Will pm you my addy

Mrs C, I'm sure there will be plenty for you to join in as well

I've got so many packets of seeds that, apart from some onion sets, garlic and a few spuds, I'm going to try and just use what I've got or what I get in swap.
It will be hard as I get sooo excited and a bit carried away when all the new packets of seeds come out

The swap "parcel" is on it's way to the first person who will have the list. Part of the swap is the fun element. Basically when you receive the parcel you take out any seeds you need/can use/fancy using, add some of your own and send it on to the next person on the list who does the same. When the parcel comes back to me the mission can start again if necessary as often there are quite a few seeds left over. Very Happy

But its an idea to post up here when you get it and when you send it on...and maybe a pm after a few days ( if the next person doesn't mention getting it...) to check it arrived?
