Mints to Trade - Anyone Interested?

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

I have lots of mints, most are too young to divide yet. But I'm looking to add others. Some that I know I can divide are:

Blackberry Mint
Spice Mint
Silver Mint
Mystery Mint - lost tag and hope someone can reID it for me
Lemon Balm
Bronze Fennel (small babies, but hardy, and perennial for me in zone 7)

The mints and Lemon Balm will be nice sized divisions. Nothing will be just a tiny sprig.

In trade I'm looking for good sized divisions, not newly rooted cuttings or sprigs. It's already close to 90 degrees here and will soon be 100 so I need something mature to survive--at least a nice FULL 4" potful. (Doesn't have to be potted, but would completely fill the pot if it were. Most of my divisions will be more than this. The smallest division will be about a 4" potful)

If you're interested in trading with me, let me know what you have. I'm also interested in unusual oreganos as well. Common stuff I can get cheap locally, so I want something I'd have to mail order.

I might consider other perennial unusual herbs, so let me know what you have. I won't bother with trading just one plant. It's just more hassle than it's worth, so let's see if we can trade at least three plants.

I do have perennials as well, and we can discuss that too if you're interested.

Some of the mints I already have, just so you know, are:

Jim's Candy Lemon Lime
Brittany's Patty Mint

NONE of these are ready to divide yet.

I've had Apple mint and wasn't impressed with it. Kentucky Colonel and Peppermint I can get locally.

Would love to have Banana mint and Pineapple mint as well as others. For some reason, the pineapple mint always dies on me. But I usually get just a very small sprig. I need a good chunk of it, I think. Does it need shade or something? It's the most finicky mint I've ever had.

Yeah, my pineapple mint always has dead leaves all at the base but the top looks nice. But by then it's gangly and I lop it off! I also have banana mint in a pot. Didn't think it was going to make it so I planted some spearmint in the same pot. Now they are both growing beautifully but I better get one out or I think the spearmint will take over.
Neither of mine are very big, so could only send "sprigs"! But you could grow them inside for a while? Or if mine ever get big, I'd send ya some... I just bought some orange mint and love it! Growing like a weed!
