Sorry, I guess it would help to know what i'm looking for. Mostly flowers- annuals and perrenials, and pretty well anything in those that are not real hard to get growing and don't take years to produce decent sized plants. I have a little veggie garden mostly beans , peas straight eight cukes and some cherry tomatoes. Thanks again.

Sorry, I should have asked what zone you are, but with annuals it shouldn't matter as long as you don't start them inside and put them out too early. I will look thru my seeds.

Thanks Jnette I would be a 4-5 zone with the micro and protected areas in the yard. I have bright sun, filtered sun/partial shade and full shade, so am open to all types of plants.

I've got some Calendula seeds I could send your way. And I don't live far away. Will have lots of hosta seeds, but you have to know that they will not come true and will produce mostly nondescript green plants. Haven't yet finished cleaning up my hosta seed but I know I will have lots of some varieties - I know the pod parent but they are OP. And if you are interested in some mislabeled heritage tomatoes, I've got a few seeds left from this year. Need to start them early and have a sunnier spot than I have to have good success. Most of mine didn't ripen last year in spite of it being hot. Message me if you are interested.

Sandra, I see I may have more seeds than I thought. I am going to make the list on WORD and then I will send it to you. Ok? Jeanette

Oh, BTW, these seeds may be a few years old. If you don't want them, let me know. I will probably put them up for grabs to everyone, but will give you a chance at them first.

Sandra, I guess this will be ok to put it on here. Let me know, Just remember Canadian Customs may stop it.

If you want, or need vegetable seeds, like tomatoes, peppers, or??? I might be able to give you some of those too.

Most are a few years old, some are partial packs, some are hand collected.

I will try to put what company they came from, how old, if they are partial packs, and if they are hand collected.

Alternanthera ‘Purple Knight’ Summer Hill Seeds, ½ doz seeds
Asarina Scandens ‘Sky Blue’, Summer Hill Seeds, partial pack
Astilbe Red, Hand collected, quite a few

Caster Beans (Not sure what color) hand collected, several beans
Clematis Macropetala, Summer Hill Seeds, 4 seeds
Coreopsis Grandiflora ‘Presto’ Thompson & Morgan, partial
Datura, Double yellow, Black Current Swirl, hand collected, Maybe a doz of each.
Datura, Yellow Ballerina, Summer Hill Seeds, 3 or 4.
Dichondra Micrantha (grass) Park Seed, partial, but quite a lot
Four O’clocks, Lonnie’s Bulk Seeds, a doz or so
Geranium Tornado Bi-color Duet, Summer Hill Seeds , a few
Geranium Tornado Red, Summer Hill Seeds, a few
Geranium Tornado Carmine, Summer Hill Seeds, a few
Hollyhock ‘Black Currant Wirl’ Summer Hill Seeds, a few
Lupin Morello Cherry, Summer Hill Seeds, some (not a few, not a lot)
Petunia Sophistica Lime Bicolor, Summer Hill Seeds, a few
Platycodon Asgra Blue, Summer Hill Seeds, looks unopened

Sesbania Grandiflora (Scarlet Wisteria) Plant Attracction, 3 seeds
Tovara Painters Palette, Summer Hill Seeds, a doz or so
Verbena, Moss, Lonnie’s Bulk Seeds, 2005, a lot of seeds

I might be adding to this list too. This was only one container I have. Or, I might have gotten rid of the others. Don't know. Will let you know if I have more. Jeanette

I've got a lot more seeds than I anticipated. Will likely have to add some postage to the envelope, but don't worry about paying me back - just pay it forward somewhere. I'll try to get them in the mail this weekend.
