I'd like to start trading seeds and plants now that I have some to share
I believe that within the EU this is not a problem, apart from a list of mainly fruit/veg to avoid.
How about SEEDS to and from the US and other countries?
I'm resigned that PLANTS are probably out...
Yes, sue, it's going to be great to try and grow things I've never heard of!
I'll have to be careful as we do get frosts as hard as in England here, but the summers are definitely hotter with much more sunshine. Fortunately we get quite a bit of rain (usually usefully at night when it's welcomed by all :)
I regret not having been able to take more cuttings from my Kent garden to bring, but such is life.
Anyway the seed harvest is just starting for me here (been too busy til now), with lots of Hibiscus syriacus, ipomea and Lagerstroemia with other stuff to come. I've also got a lot of palm seeds and plantlets to ID before I can offer them.
I think the pickaxe will be a year round necessity :( Will let you know if I ever get to do without it ;oD
Would love either/both of the seeds on your list for my French garden. Do you think that the Lagerstroemia would flower in a decade or so?
My list is fairly eclectic - http://davesgarden.com/trading/edit/viewbystatus.php?status=28600 . Have probably got a few other ones as well.
Also, when I get to France at Halloween, I might be able to send you some plants... Have Gentiana puberulenta and Gentiana kurroo in large quantities (as seedlings) if you are interested.
