We'll see how this works out.
The idea is to list an item you want, or have, to swap or trade. You don't have to list it here, but can keep a trades list in your Blog.
Those of you that know how, can add a link to your tradeslist like this
Now, only post once, and if you wish to add or delete a swap/trade item, just edit your post!
You can do this by clicking on "Edit" which is just under your name in the lefthand box, then changing, adding or deleting items and text.
Now I don't want to have to tell people off, so NO CHAT
Also, you can't edit a picture, as far as I know, so you needn't add one unless you can't help yourself.
This thread shouldn't get too long if we all stick to the rules ok? But if all fails, we will just start a new one.
The only plants I am interested in at this point are bromeliad pups and palm seeds, and now the Mexican Tree fern seeds, added 9/7/08 - gourd seeds, lipstick palm seeds If anyone has any to spare, have a look at the link above to see what I have to offer. I will be updating it periodically.
(All thanks to KK for suggesting this in a prior thread)

Have replied to Annette via dmail 6/5/08
Have helped out Jean with yellow nerines 8/5/08

bumping by editing doesn't work!

I don't have much to trade but I do have plenty of lovely daylilies. They will quickly multiply. Are very hardy, some dying down in winter and coming back in spring. If the weather is mild they will not die right away , just shed some leaves and put on new growth.

I also have plenty of irises. These are a mix of colors and some are older heritage varieties.These are not named.

I have epiphyllum and zygocactus / schlumbergera cuttings also.

Seeds from honesty, wallflowers and valerian as they die off each year.

I expect to be back trading plants again by Spring. Please check out my available plants here: and my wanted list here: I have a lot of other plants as well as the ones on the list. Please check out my journal or enquire via DMail. If you check out my journal (Click on my name in colour just to the left of this post, then go down to where it says "Read Kaelkitty's Gardener's Journal (1913 items)" and click. The "Read Journal" link will give you access to all my plants - it's still a bit of a work in progress as I have about 200 entries still to do in the Cacti section plus a lot of updating to do.

Ciao, KK.

PS I have developed an interest in Lachenalias, but I now have most of the common ones. I will have swaps at the end of the season for some species if you have any unusual species to trade OR if you would just like some bulbs of Lachenalia aloides 'Aurea', Lachenalia aloides var. quadricolor, or Lachenalia mutabilis please DMail me

Hi all, Glenys here from Bendigo. I am looking for someone that has large white Chrysanthemum cuttings, around August of course. I want the really pure white varieties, but nothing in Spiders or Quills, they make bunches messy. I don't have anything to trade but am really happy to pay for the cuttings. I only need around 10, so if there is someone out there that can help, please let me know. Just so you know, it is freezing here today, not happy!!

Just a note on quarantine, in Australia AQIS have a database listing probibited and non-prohibited imports. Anything not listed has to have a case made out for it showing it fits in with the requirements for import. That costs, and gets that plant listed on the data base. This is the URL for the data base, you can do your own searches and see what conditions apply:

I'd suspect the USA and some other countries would have something similar. Anyone wanting seed sent to them across national borders should make the enquiries of the local authorities and, if okay, contact the 'sender' with details of how they should be sent.

Of course, then there's CITES regulations, that's a story of its own.

Dear All,
I think the aussie swapping is great but what about the vegies???
Most of my seed comes from Seed savers Network and I run Menai High School seed group with my ag students ( when i'm not on maternity leave)
I have lots of mustard ; leaves are peppery and great in salad and seeds used in cooking
rocket; quick growing peppery salad green
carrot; all season, easy to grow, and save seed from. By the way carrot flowers bring beneficial preditor insects
radish; should be china rose but it may by one that crossed because it was grown at the school and i think other people put in radish as well. however, i have grown it and its an ok radish, which i mainly grow to mark other seed anyway.
Greenshaft pea; a climbing pea
Red barlotti bean
I you want any advise on saving seed, hand pollinating cucubits etc let me know

Am South facing, trying to do a massed display, with limited flowers as the boy gets heyfever...very badly... ( I haven't told him about the Bouvardia's)!!!!! lol

I cant swap and trade plants as yet as i am only a begginner, and am iterested in doing so as my garden grows, but i am willing to pay a small amount for them if i have to
thanks hoping to hear back from some clever gardeners it would be great if i could have some idea's on what plants will grow under the stairs

Hi All :)
I have some Liliumís that are about to drop seed.
If anyone wants to try and grow them, you just pay postage and ill send them to you.
There is a sunset one that was pictured a few months ago- mostly red with orange.
Trumpet regal type lily
And pixels- white with purple spots.

I also saved seeds last year from, pixels and trumpet lily but forgot to label them and they can be a mixed lot.

I know g_whizz grows lilies; he gets first dibs if he wants them

Also the main bulbs and stems should start to die down in the next few months, and I am guessing there is going to be heaps of baby bulbs or pups.
If anyone is interested in them just ask.

Just collected end of season:

Poppy seed: red with black centre, grew 1m tall short flower season

California poppy seed orange: 30cm plants flowers continually for a few months

Cayenne chilli seed: good for soups and stews and chilli con carn. Normal mild heat- wonít explode your head off.

Chain of hearts seed: never grown seed before itís to easy just to break of a pieces of the plant and stick it in a new pot.

String of beads seed: never grown seed before, easier to grow cuttings.

AND Heaps of past years tomatoes seed that I didnít plant out this year.

Ox heart Ė pink?

Yellow pear: Always a good producer Ė low acid and sweet

Roma: slow producer few fruit

Heritage striped: boring plants most you will get is 5 fruit per plant

Random Tomato Mix: Greens, blackish, reds, large and small fruits.

Hi Everyone,
I now have some more Mandevilla Laxa Seeds ( white wonderfully perfumed climber of moderate vitality- easily controlled down south) if anyone is interested in them.
Looking for seeds of edible perennials but swapping not essential.PM me of you want some. Oh and I desperately want waterlilies - any colour would be good- have a big pond to fill.
Thanks from Sue

Hi, I am a new backyard gardener. Bought packets of seeds, and I realize that Iíll probably only use say, 10 out of the 500 seeds in the packet! So what I have for trade are:
From commercial bought: wild rocket, carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprout, red and gold onions, beetroot, coriander, jalapeno pepeprs
From my uncleís garden (he is a great experienced gardener): cherry tomatoes, basil

I would like plants or seeds: strawberries, blueberries, herb plants (rosemary, sage, bay, parsley, etc). If you have any other plants/seeds that are not in my have-list, Iím open to them as well.

I stay in North-East Melbourne. Greensborough to be exact.

Hi All. I've been looking for seeds/seedlings for Coneflowers other than purple. The ones that have really taken my fancy are the variety "Warm Summer". Are they available in Australia? Does anyone know where from please?

Hi Everyone, I have lots of succulent cuttings I can take, everything from aloes to zygos, also have zonal pelargoniums, crimson rosebud and scarlet rosebud, Bel Gold and a couple of unknown names, scented pelargoniums, I have peppermint, Mabel Grey and nutmeg, Irises, so far only Spiced Custard is out , but will sort out names when the others flower. (Can take pics)
I am interested in getting more aloes and zygoes, gasterias, haworthias, albucas, unusual kalanchoes, sanseverias, and pretty much any other succulent that is differrent. Also looking for Ivy Geraniums (Pelargonium Peltatum), I had a lovely collection but lost them all when I moved. More Irises would be good too. Please and thankyou.
Cheers C.

jamilurrahman, to make an international garden, you will need to reseacrh where certain plants come from, and then try to make the growing conditions the same. If your country is hot and humid/wet, most of the time, try using tropical plants, as plants from dry climates will often rot and not perform well. Google would be an ideal place to start your research. Good luck.

I love to do gardening but from last 3 months I am unable to keep focus on garden as I am pregnant and working in garden wearing maternity dresses is quite uncomfortable.

I would like to get some Cuban lily bulbs, if anyone has any. I'm at Glenorchy and am happy to buy them from you or trade, you can come and have a browse in my garden as we only bought the house in Sept so not sure what is here.
