I am wanting to redo a large flower bed, so I could sure use those Iris's. Besides I love sharing my seeds. It is especially neat that they would go to Newbies. I remember when I first started growing from seed, I wanted to try ever kind of seed I came across. By late Spring both of our driveway's the entire side yard and back patio were covered with flats of seedlings. I had so many I was giving flats away to neighbors.

Keep watching, there will be more to come of these auctions and just go ahead and bid and have fun. We really are just one big family here. Everyone has been so nice. Good luck to the winner.

Someone please post a pic. of Bat seed plant! Never heard of it and sounds like a friendly war going on here for Black bat seeds. Any bat seed plant will enlighten this "newbie" (don't know what most of the seeds listed are, so that makes me a newbie, wowooo, maybe the term is plant dummy) I too love any and all Iris and Day Lilies...
named or not.

Not telling what is in it, but think you will like it. Got one for flower, one for Hollyhocklady, One for Blondie, and one for bsgardens, and one for Loca. Then got a biggie for arejay. Well I guess that makes 7 all together. Just been putting stuff in when I see something and already mailed several out this past weekend. So, lots of seeds going around this week.

Well, just as I sent that the rain just stopped all of a sudden. But as I was saying, The auction was for a great cause and every newbie loves the seeds they start out with and if you would like to donate any, they would be appreciated and needed. I've really enjoyed these auctions and meeting everyone and want to congratulate all the winners. Everyone is a winner when they get blooms in their garden and beautiful plants, so great gardening to all of you this summer and hope to see you all back later on the auction thread.

Thank you so much Mitt for donating all these beauties for the Newbie cause. Congrat's to everyone!!!!!! Can't wait to see all the pictures of your gardens.

However Arejay we did tell you that we planned to bury you in seed. Because we love you of course. I know there's more out there just sitting under the bed. LOL

So I propose we start a second Iris auction for newbie seeds. I will donate my 10 Irises to the highest bidder (Arejay chooses of course) and for the Northerners I will add 10 seeds of Giant Himalayan Lillies Cardiocrinum giganteum var. yunnanense and for the Southerners 8 Black Bat Flower Seeds. You know what they are. LOL

Let's don't be shy now. This Newbie seed pack from Arejay made my summer. Remember the more weeders the better. ROTFL

You're very welcome, Patricia. Thank you for helping to fill the "seed bank". Sherri is right we need to find more seeds. I noticed this morning that 14 new people signed up. And even though everyone exceeded expectations to help with Robin's quest to fill her seed bank for her giveaways, I'm sure she doesn't want to tell someone in December she can't give them any seeds because she is out of seeds.

Everyone of the bidders were unbelieveable. I can't say enough and thank you just doesn't seem to cover what everyone of you has done. Never in my wildest dream did I think it would turn into such a wild 24 hours of fun for everyone. Especially Robin. I offered some irises but she and her gang made it happen.

Patricia, you and the other bidders have stirred up some cobwebs in my head. I'm thinking why not make this a yearly function? I think it's bought alot of people together with some excitement and one thought in mind to help brings seeds to the newbies that join.

( I guess I better run past Robin first.) lol

Thank you to all the bidders. Congratulations to the winner. Thank you!!!

Yes, Yes, Yes!! I say lets do it!!! Mit is absolutely right..It is hard to find seeds in Maine in December...It all depends on people like you. You have no idea how many lives are touched by your donations...I get long thankful letters everyday...some tell me how their lives are changed just by an envelope of seeds...it is absolutely amazing the people I meet...the donating and the receiving ...it is all priceless... I thank each and everyone of you for participating.

Arejay, will you dmail your address, and I'll get them out in the next few days. Do you need printed instructions to go with the seeds and bulbils?

If anyone has ideas of seeds you'd like to see go up for our next auction #5 let me know. I do keep some of the winning seed bids,(have to have some to put up to get more in), but am also filling a baggie for arejay's newbie packs. As a baggie fills,I will send it on. I have one ready now for her, sending out tomorrow. Next auction will be 8/23/09 at 8:00pm. We will start a new thread for it-Auction #5 that night, with new seed up for auction named at that time. So if there is any particular seed you would like to see up there, let me know.

You are so sweet Seray for donating the iris for another auction. The seed bids are really important to the newbies, and I know you will surely be blessed for the donation.
The seed envelopes and live plants will go out in the morning. Keep your eyes open for them.
