Aussie trades for NSW, QLD, VIC, NT, ACT, TAS

Coffs Harbour, Australia

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!

Merino, Australia

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.

Bendigo, Australia

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!!

Coffs Harbour, Australia

hey you internationals, we can't trade internationally, due to quarantine laws here in Australia. Sorry about that.

Carlisle, PA(Zone 6b)

I never had a problem with seeds. I know plants are strictly taboo. Thanks.

noonamah, Australia

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.
