WELCOME!!

Group participation is a great way to "feed" that exciting need for new and different plants! Who doesn't want new and exciting plants? Plants which are unusual and NOT available in the Big Box Stores... That’s what this swap is all about. My goal is to offer you the most exciting new and unusual seed varieties not available in the market today. Any plant can be unusual so please share whatever flower seeds you have that can not be commonly purchased in the store. It may just be what someone else is looking for. Personally I have collected and picked some interesting seeds that I will be unloading into this swap ☺.

** Every Participant ** - will receive a pack of Ismelia carinata in their package from me ☺. A vermiculite baggie and germination tips...to help with some of the uncommon seed types you may receive. I’ve included a pic of one of many colors of blooms the painted daisy produces.

Sign Up
To Sign Up send me a Dmail with Your Name, Address, and Email address. If I don’t receive a dmail from you then you will not be signed up just from posting here. International Members are more then welcome also.The participants will always be updated and listed here. Sign Up Until Sept. 5th (or up to 35 participants)

Seed Packages:
The seed packages Must Have the Botanical name of the seeds on the package. They can be in plastic baggies, paper, glassine, or your own special packaging. As long as the labels are Legible with Common and Botanical names. You can send up to 10 of the same type of seed packages, with a Limit of no more than 100 packages of seeds. NO VEGETABLES, NO HERBS... Please

About the Seeds: Please send seeds that you are 100% sure of the species and kind. Like for example please don’t send seeds labeled “Blue Columbine” If you are sending a Blue Columbine please know it’s botanical name, example: Aquilegia caerulea – Colorado Blue Columbine. There are no seed amount limits per package, due to the rarity of some of the seeds some of us might have. Therefore if you are offering 5 seeds in a pack it's acceptable in this Swap. Example: Seed pack of Merremia aurea (5 seeds). The seeds can be harvested or purchased by you. If not either, be sure the seeds are from a reputable source.

Postage Cost:
Please include $3.00 to $5.00 (not stamps) Return Postage for your seeds to be mailed back to you.
Or you can Paypal your return postage to: uniqueseeds@comcast.net
I didn't want Postage to come back and bite me in the butt...So those of you that can send another dollar or so will be considered a donation (thank you) for those unforeseen postal cost. The more participants the heaver the packages. In addition it may help with some of our International participants return postage that can not send US currency but have donated many seeds. For Paypal: Choose "sending to Friends and Family" Or I will not get the Full amount because of the charges. If you don't see that option in Your Paypal then Choose "Personal" and select "Other". Thanks


** Send Seeds - between August 20th thru September 20th **

Your Seeds - will be mailed to between on October 5th thru 21st. Everyone will receive a package with a USPS Tracking Number, which will be automatically emailed when your mailing label is printed. Each Participant will not receive less seeds then what they send in. Everyone will receive seeds from every participant with exception of not receiving any of your own seeds back ☺

I hope this doesn't sound too silly, but I am confused.

1.Do we all send the seeds, & a wish list? Then get, whatever was on the wish list?
2.Or, do we all send seeds, and then receive equal portions, of everything that was sent by everyone?
3.Or, do we have a choice of doing it, one way, or the other way?

Answers: strange2u

1. Yes everyone sends seeds, a wish list is not required, and if you have/post a wish list I will be pulling seeds and adding seeds per request if you see someone post something you especially like.

2. Everyone sends seeds... Each Participant will not receive less seeds then what they send in. Everyone will receive seeds from every participant with exception of not receiving any of your own seeds back ☺

3. You choice is only in posting a wish list. But for the most part you will receive Surprises. Which is a lot of fun when you receive your package. I participated in a swap many years ago and I got some of the most unique seeds! It was like Christmas!

Kim,
If we purchase seeds from sources other than big box stores, should we send in multiple packages of one seed variety or will you be breaking them down to distribute?

Wow! Won't we have fun next year with all these new seeds! I am still working on a complete Have list. Ones I can't use due to naturalizing in our fencerows: Goldenrod, any type of Thistle, Elderberry, Rugosa Rose, Milkweed. I already have Moonflower and Chocolate Daisy which I haven't planted yet, but am really looking forward to it.

Ones that I would especially like to try so far are Variegated Pink Lunaria (anyone have the dark purple?), Variegated Geranium, Japanese Wood Poppy, Apricot Delight Primrose, True Blue Daisy, but would LOVE to try any of the others that have been posted. I'm looking for Tall Garden Phlox in any color other than purple.

Everyone Has a bag with their name in my big pink box ☺. Their bag has a list attached... their 'Wish List' and the 'don't want list'. If you don't post wishes you will get a lot of surprises! Even if you don't see anyone post what your looking for...still post the wish because I may have it or someone may have sent it in.

The fun part is I'm not telling if i have some of your wishes. So you will still be surprised when/if you receive one ☺.

Thanks and Happy Gardening!

You are so right, Kim. For seed collectors the "already haves" would be most of what is sent in.

Would it be easier to just send a Don't Want list with our seeds when we mail them? I can't imagine trying to sort a couple of thousand seed packs. I had enough trouble looking through my own stash! You must be super organized, especially with a 3 and 4 yr. old to care for. Even though I have containers of seeds and seeds crammed in the fridge like many of us, the majority of these offered are new to me since they are more unique. If other collectors already have most of them, you are lucky indeed! The selection is awesome!

Others that I find intriguing:
Petunia superbissima
Kochia scoparia
Madfadyena unquis
Yellow Datura
Passiflora incarnata Maypops
Helleborus niger
Columbine Winky Double Rose & White
Lunaria variegated alba
Gaillardia Razzle Dazzle
Felicia amelloides
Chamerion angustifolium Stahl Rose
Lavatera thuringiaca
Eupatorium rugosum Chocolate
Codonopsis lanceolata
Geranium phaeum
Geranium cantabrigiense Biokovo
Ligularia przewalski
Oenothera tricolor Sunset Boulevard - really pretty!
Lychnis viscaria
Geum Lady Strateden
Geranium Midnight Reiter
Anthericum ramosum
Kalimeris incisa Charlotte
Sanguisorba menziessii
Stachys monieri Rosea

Been sitting in front of the television, filling packages, and sorting through seeds the last few days :-). Many seeds from my list are already grabbed. I've even filled wish list of seeds I never posted as Having. So if you have any wants make sure to post them! Nonetheless there's a lot of seeds already in and lots more to come. So your package will have some of your wants but many surprises!

Also I know that many people harvest seeds well into November... and later depending on your location. I'm thinking of doing another swap in January :-) Maybe "Fall Harvest Swap" LOL

Kim,

If you'd stop ordering illegal substances, the customs people would stop burning your mail - Only Kidding!!! I've finished packaging all my seeds. I'm going to write up the list of what I'm sending, along with my "Wish I'd get/Wish I wouldn't get" list. I will have the envelope (large and padded) in the mail to you tomorrow. Sorry to wait until the last minute, but stuff is still ripening here, and I was actually harvesting the TOTALLY COOL Jap. Morning Glory (Murisakihegizaki) today! I only got enough for 4 trades of 10-12 seeds each, but I started 10 this spring (which cost me $5.- btw), and every one germinated, and they are well worth the $ IMO.

Thank you so much for organizing this - I am sure it is a ton of work for you - though you do get first dibs on the best stuff (good thinking! ;). I'm looking forward to some cool new things to start over this winter.

Happy gardening,

Jennifer

I just spotted all those milkweed seeds - ooh. My daughter has been "saving" monarch cocoons that are too late in the season so the milkweed plants they are on have fallen over. So she has this box with two sticks in it that she is positioning the cocoons on. Three hatched yesterday and flew off. So cool.
Any milkweeds can go in my box - I love butterflies and I have room for them out in the pasture.

Hi Everyone!

I've been working on Seed packs for hours today...Some I have repackaged for various reasons. Just want to let everyone know that if I can read the labels I think you can too. If for any reason you receive a seed pack that you can't make out. Please post what you think it spells and I will clarify. But honestly I have gone through every pack and if I have a problem reading it then I re-wrote it. Any package you receive I can CLEARLY read it.

Sooooo I'm hoping you can too :-)

JenDion has sent in Viola mandshurica "Fuji Dawn" - as of yesterday it was listed in PF Files as only 8b hardy. This is not true about the hardiness of the Viola. Therefore I contacted Admin. and they have updated it with correct info. It's been noted to be at least 3b hardy. What a lovely little viola. I grew it many years ago and it does come true from seed. I was happy to have new seeds as I lost this plant through my move in 2005.

Hi Everyone! It's almost over and Packages are scheduled to mail out Next Friday. If all goes well...I'm still picking seeds, sorting, and re-labeling.

Also I wanted to give you heads up...most of my seeds are packed in pink 4 mil Anti-static bags. These are expensive quality (as far as bags go). I wouldn't throw them away but re-use them, the labels peel off well, and they are great to have! No seeds will stick to the inside of the bag...not even the tiniest.

Happy Gardening Everyone :-)

Thanks!

UPDATE:

Everyone's packages I have tried to give special thought instead of just splitting up the packages and blindly putting them in each bag. Even looking through your Dave's Garden want list. I mailed and/or prepared all the International packages... with hopes that it will give them a chance to get there because USA will be receiving theirs this coming week. I know my original mail date was October 5th but I asked for another 7 days because I had been working on packages every day. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't do something concerning these packages. Also each one weighs differently and have to be weighed accordingly.

Nonetheless...everyone's wants were being filled first. Some have much more wants and (please don't be disappointed) every want wont be fulfilled. Yesterday I went to get some more Datura 'Black Currant Swirl' seeds to add to everyone's package and there was a snake there to await me. So I got all bummed out and didn't want to go back but side! LOL. I HATE SNAKES and I hadn't seen one in 10 years. I can deal with all my critters...frogs...grasshopper..rabbits, deer. Just not a snake!!!

But once again...you will receive an email automatically when your package ships this week.

I'm hoping he's not still over there in that garden...Somebody wanted some rudbeckia seeds and no one sent in any...So I thought I'd go get them. They're over there with the Datura...okkkkk I'll suck it up. I think he may be just as afraid of me as I am of him. I told my DH he was 5 feet long!!!! ha ha...My son said OMG Mom "it's a foot and a half" Looked like 5 feet to me! ha ha ha

Thanks Kim for all you are doing! I can't wait to see what I get!
I don't mind snakes but not sure how I'd feel if I ran across one in my yard...do you know what kind it is?

It's was the nasty kind! LMAO...Seriously though... it was black and not small. My son says it was a very large garden snake (not sure). Him and his friends tried to catch it to keep it. It's wouldn't have been kept here...but they failed. It got away...

Last snake I saw was in my cat's mouth. Now we have gophers and a snake is a hot commodity so if you can imagine this. A middle aged lady shaking a black cat with a two foot snake in it's mouth and saying quite sternly "Drop the snake, drop the snake."

I got my seeds today! What a wonderful package with a lot of my wants and so many special extra seeds.
I'm still sorting out all. Will take some time, haha.
Thank you so much Kim. These are the best packed seeds I've ever had in a group swap. I'm sure you had a lot of work on repacking some of those seeds. All are labeled extremely clear. I never had that experience in a group swap. Usually there are quite a lot of packages with unreadable labels or common names that indicate different plants. And there is no debris/chaff in the packages. I'm sure you are responsable for that.
Did you get any sleep last few weeks?

Hurray for you Kim !!!!!!!

Ha ha ha ha!!!! Nooooo no sleep. I was working on packing almost at midnight last night. I bit off more then I could chew! but it's sooo much fun. I feel like I got to know everyone a little more just by picking out seeds for each of you...he he.

You are very welcome and it was my pleasure...more packages mailed today and tomorrow and the next day :-)


Ohhhh can't take all the credit for No chaff...I have to say that everyone sent in seeds with no or very little chaff which was very considerate. Also I have 2 boxes of those seeds with no botanical names you're talking about. Those are my "Surprise" No telling what I might get seeds and can't trade them..LOL

Kim,

Too bad you're so far away - I could lend you my dog AND my cat - they 'tag-team' to catch critters together. I'll let you know when my seeds arrive. Thanks so much for all your work on this!!

Finally I got the time to look up all the seeds you sent me.
Well, I can tell you I'm very happy with the seeds. You sent me so many seeds I wanted and even some more I didn't know before, but would really like to grow.
The few ones I can't grow in my zone are special enough to trade for other seeds I can grow here.
Thanks again Kim. You did a wonderful job.

I'm a little excited now! I'm siting here giggling because I'm going through some of your want list...I surprised myself with how much seed I personally have. And everybody is getting something from their Dave gardens want list...That's all I can say. I'm sure you may get seeds you already have...but it just makes your trade list bigger :-) More packages went out today. Some are leaving in the Morning, and a few on Saturday. Then I'm done :-)...So I'll be gardening this weekend and possibly digging some cannas...Still not too cold yet. Had one night of frost and it withered the leaves a little.

Hopefully that snake is long gone...

Everyone got Canna's...why? Because so many came in :-) If you have never grown them from seed, give them a try. Very rewarding and they bloom fast and Can be grown as an annual. I nick the seed and then drop them in a cup of water, then just leave them. After a some days they germinate in the water. Everybody does it different...some put them in the ground but that takes too long for me. I start mine in April and they bloom around June. They bloom until frost and sometimes I dig them and bring a bulb inside (sometimes not if i save the seed). Hope this helps...

If you find your snake put him in a box and ship him to me. My husband DEATHLY hates snakes. Of course, he's from the Philippines where they can be lethal. I'll just keep him as a pet until my husband misbehaves and then - Whacko! )just kidding. ... maybe

Ok, next year I'll do a better job of labeling now that I see how it should be done, lol...how do they get those little label printed? Probably won't go that far but will use a sticker or paper in the baggies...

Kim, you did such a wonderful job, KUDDOS!!!!! Off to begin looking up some of these...Kathy

Kathy that is beautiful! I like growing carnations to cut them in put them in the house. What a wonderful smell...Also stock smells sooo good. I sure hope you like all your new seeds. It's good you have to look some of them up :-) As far as those labels...your computer/laptop has a the program in your 'word' or whatever document program you use. I have done a lot of writing this year..I have hand written a lot of the labels too. I have a problem with my joints in one finger and it's hard for me to write sometimes.

I got a great box of seeds yesterday; seeds from wish lists I have posted on at least 3 different garden websites. You really did some research or at least have incredible intuition about what people like.
I am always well pleased with a swap when I get back 3-4 packets of seeds I want to grow. There will be several on my "must sow" list from this swap. Super job Kim!

I am thrilled with my 'Botanical Garden in a Box'! Kim, thank you SO much for all your diligent work in putting together such a wonderful selection. I'm still overwhelmed and can't wait to try the peony seeds and others. This will also be an educational experience for me since I need to hunt some of them up online to see the common names, pictures, and how to grow them. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of this trade and have the opportunity to try plants that I never even knew existed, as well as some that I am familiar with but have not had a chance to plant. It's really funny about collecting seeds - the more you get, the more you want and appreciate them. I think that important lessons in life can be learned from planting seeds...patience, hope, nurturing, and that from something very tiny, big things can grow.
