Join the fun as a group of seed enthusiasts share seeds by mail, and beautify each other's landscapes. Each gardener will mail in an envelope containing twenty-five packets of Heirloom garden seeds along with $8 cash to cover shipping/handling. Once I have received all of the seed mail, I will swap your seeds with the other participants, toss in a few extra goodies from my collection, and mail you a whole new mix of things to try next season.
Why heirloom seeds? My goal for this swap is to help spread botanical diversity in more gardens. By growing heirloom seeds, you can confidently master seed saving and achieve a consistent harvest year after year. The seeds can be ones you've saved from your garden or purchased, but please do not send seeds that are more than two years old. All 25 packets may be the same variety of seeds or an array of different things. All I ask is that each individual packet has enough seeds for your fellow gardeners to have a decent crop. Use your best judgment or ask me if you are unsure.
