Ok dmail me your address and I'll send what tiles I have. I just couldn't get interested in the mosaic thing. I am not creative that way, that's probably why.

U.P., MI(Zone 5a)

I am interested in the african violet book. I own a game shop I have lots of ps2 & gameboy games. What are you looking for?


in Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

Hi Glamourpuss, I will have to get back with you later tonight when my son (age 11) and grandson ( age 6) gets home from school. I don't know which ones they are looking for.
Thanks, Patti

Did I tell you I mailed the mosaic tiles today? They aren't big sacks but I love the colors.

Naples, FL(Zone 10a)

I sent you a dmail regarding book no. 20.....

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

I'm interested in the AV pot and the other pots you listed; the names don't tell me anything. Any chance you could post a picture? And books 4, 5, 6, 7?

Hi Carrie,

Carrie please check my wish list above. I also have plants listed on my have/ want list.

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

x, C

in Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

Carrie what is WS Noid?

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

Wintersowed, no identification. I took the Sharpie company seriously when they said "waterproof", but it turns out they did NOT mean waterproof through rain storms and snow storms and serious cold. I have like 80% germination of maybe 450 plants (some are the same) and until they get bigger, I don't know what is what.

xxxx, Carrie

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

So sorry, I have none of those. I wouldn't normally grow a non-hardy perennial. It would have to be grown as an annual. I do have some "autumn joy" type sedum, too much in fact, but I don't know specifically what kind it is. I also have a brown pot you might like.

xxx, C

Harlowton, MT(Zone 4a)

I am interested in the 30 1 gal pots. I have Sunburst cactus, maybe a couple of native cactus.
Please get back to me.

How many pounds do these books add up to? There is a mail rate at the Post Office which is just for books and other media, which is extremely inexpensive, have you asked about it, yet? Thanks, Cyra

Central Valley, CA(Zone 9b)

How would you like me to send you the $ ? Is Paypal an option, or is there another method you'd prefer?
PS. I rec'd your email and understand your point:)

Patti: What is the 'age range' of the IQuest and which cartridges(subjects and their age range) do you have?
I have a few things you might be interested in and might be interested in your philodendron on the trading page, too, if we can work this out.
I noted someone special is interested in your philodendron and she *needs* it, LOL!! So never mind about that.....I'll check into the other thing!

I shouldn't be even *thinking* about setting up another trade...but...well...you know;)

Nan. It has two science cartridges for 5th grade and starter pack cartridge ,but is great for any grade. The face plate has no scratches, and in great shape. I am not sure on the age range.

I'm seriously interested in that, and I've got a few plants that I think you might be interested in.
I'll take photos of them tonight and try *really hard* to get them to you tomorrow....I still have a few photos to send to Shirley that I haven't had time to upload.....I'll get it done for both of you ASAP!!

Patti, I have two types of rosary vine, one with silvery rounded leaves, reddish on the back, and one with greener more arrow shaped leaves. I am very busy right now with school and work, but maybe if you want I could mail you some tubers/cuttings sometime when the weather cools off in September?
