I think it would be fun to try and grow things that are native to the part of the world - of the different members of this forum.

So I would be willing to trade a Skunk cabbage root for something not native to Canada.

In case you don’t know - you can make flour from skunk cabbage root and it gets a pretty yellow flower. Cheers!

I realize it's the start of winter in most places, but I've got a load of morning glories I harvested from mine this summer. I'm not sure what variety they are, but they're an amazing blue to purple bloom...

Ok, I'll even go first.

I have basil seeds, plus cayenne & jalapeño pepper seeds. And as a rare item some Red Peter Pepper seeds. http://www.peterpepp...ter_peppers.htm

To quote from the web site, "
which naturally and consistently contort themselves into a miniature replica of, well - take a look at its scientific name: Capsicum annuum var. annuum 'Peter' (Penis Pepper)."

Peace,
poor_old_dad

Hiya all!!!

I've got a couple tea tree seeds (Camellia sinensis). I've got more than I can grow, but only two to give away. The ones I planted have already sprouted, so they're good seed stock... I'll trade them for pretty much any perennial plant...


I also have a few Lilac seeds (purple is about all I can tell you about the tree) and some acorns I collected from our farm before my parents sold the place. I dunno if they're good to grow, but they're here...

Hey smokin4peace, where abouts are you in Michigan? I am in Detroit, are you anywhere near there? I don't know if I can P.M. yet but I have a whole bunch of cool seeds. I have passion vine seeds, Angels Trumpets, morning glorys, and a few different kinds of poppies. I probably have more than that but can't think of anymore.

I don't have a whole lot to offer, but I do have a lot of Morning Glory seeds. They turn out a beautiful blue-ish - purple flower, and take pretty much any abuse you throw at them... I love hibiscus plants, if you'd be willing to trade a few let me know

Hello everyone,

I have some seeds that I would be more than willing to mail to someone for free, and no trade is needed. Makes me happy enough to help people out with gardening. I have Serrano Chile Pepper Seeds, Big Boy Tomato Seeds, Cucumber seeds, Summer Squash seeds, Chamomile seeds, Watermelon Seeds, Pumpkin, and Basil seeds. Please pm me if you’re interested.


Much love and Happy Gardening,
DrTJEckleburg

All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence, but this rose is an extra. Its smell and its color are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras, and so I say again that we have much to hope from the flowers"-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I have a lot of "money plant" (seeds )- they make the silvery translucent quarter size circles - to offer. Would really like to find some passion flower seeds and some old-fashioned petunia seeds. I also could send cuttings of althea, or rose of sharon. (I could not imagine how long it would take for an althea to grow from seed.)
I've also got a lot of caladium bulbs.
Will appreciate any suggestions, even if you don't have the seeds.
So far, I've had no luck finding the plants, or seeds locally. And to think you used to could find these plants on the side of the road.

i have some Korean Perilla Seeds. They need light to germinate.

It's the best for putting meat inside, rolling it up, and chomping down.

Will trade for something interesting and edible, especially bitter greens and aliums.

Beefsteak Tomato
Cherokee Purple Tomato
Kohlrabi Early Purple Vienna
Broccoli Waltham 29

Hi everyone! I am in South West Florida and thinking about trying a garden in my extra lot. I only have 2 orange trees and a grapefruit tree now but if anyone knows about what grows here and would like to help me get started please let me know!

I appreciate anything you have to offer (If I can grow it someone can eat it)..just trying to get my green thumb on and save some $$

If you are in the Charlotte County area I'd stop by to get some starts.
