Oi. I thought there would be more interest than this. There are no seed savers here? Or maybe I have this in the wrong area?

Hi, Moody, I haven't dug into the bulk of my seeds yet but I'll probably have some things to trade. I just transplanted parsley, lovage and oregano grown from seed in by my woodstove but I won't be starting peppers and tomatoes here until late feb. and through March. I think a lot of folks here save seed so just keep checking in. This will get me to pull out my jars of seeds!

Pardon my denseness, but is that list the things that you have and are offering to trade, or the list of things you are hoping to get from somebody else?

It's in the seventies here today so after spending lots of the day outdoors I dug into my seeds.

I have small amounts of these...
greek oregano...origanum vulgare hirtum...the really good one (from Richters)
bronze fennel
italian basil
purple cherokee tomato
Rutgers tomato

I have a lot of these...
golden jenny melon
old time tennessee melon
large luffa
orange glo watermelon

All are open pollinated and my saved seed except the oregano from Richters.
I am looking for nettle seed, burdock seed, peach and apple seed, and most anything open pollinated and interestng, edible, flowering...


EDIT: I'm not concerned if I trade for anything...let me know if there is anything on my list you, Moody, or anyone else, would like and I would be happy to send it. Just PM an address.

Would anyone be willing to send me a few (and I really mean a few) seeds of comfrey and borage, if I sent you a self-addressed stamped envelope? I live in a townhouse complex and my growing bed is teen tiny, but I want to put in borage to encourage bees, and comfrey to grow for mulch.

I am out of greek oregano and bronze fennel and cherokee purple tomato from my list in a post back a ways. and again I dont care if its a trade just PM an address and I will send.
Frank, how tall does the popcorn get? and is it open pollinated? If it is a small plant I might be interested to try it mixed wth other plants. I never grow corn so I have no experience there!

I just found out that there is a Canadian government seed bank (like the USDA one in the USA) and they will send you a small sample for free of seeds in their bank.

I'm looking to get some heritage European malting barley and ancient wheat seeds from them...

I'm just going through the process now with some ancient wheat and barley varieties.

First you need to search for the things you want using the following link:
http://pgrc3.agr.gc.ca/acc/search-recherche_e.html

Try typing in "einkorn" into the "Other type of identifier" field under "Complex Queries" area.

You should get 3 results.

Do this to find all the seeds you are after. You're actually after the CN identifier ( like CN 10018 ).

I also copy the plant name as it appears in the search result too (CN 10018 Triticum monococcum subsp. monococcum Einkorn).

Then go to the request form here:
http://pgrc3.agr.gc.ca/cgi-bin/npgs/send_order.pl

and fill it out. These samples are for research from what I can gather so you'll need to supply a reasonable intended use. I'm investigating the viability of heritage grain varietals in polyculture systems for cold northern climates.

Someone will then email you with a form attached that you need to print, sign, and email, fax, or post back.

Jane Reed , I have some borage seed I saved for my bee plantings and I can spare some for you if you want to PM your address, no need to send an envelope. All the rest of the borage is spoken for now by Steve and Jane : )

Nechda Chekanov, I would dearly like to try the Muscat de Provence pumpkin if we can arrange that.

I do not know my cultivars but I have swiss chard, calendula and a mauve coloured fall flowering aster that is wonderful for the bees during the dearth in autumn to offer . I also have a plethora of cosmos flower seed available before I guerilla sow it up and down my street right of way .

Nick- interesting resource, I had no idea... I'd also be interested in your projects- anything on the forums so far?
I'm guessing you've already looked at heritage seed companies such as Salt Spring Seeds? They have some cool grains.. I haven't tried growing any yet..

We carry heirloom organic seeds from a farmer here in Arizona on our website:

I want to add more varieties, especially tropical species for indoor growing if anyone has sources or suggestions.

I am so tech illiterate I can't figure out how to PM. I do know what it is though so I can learn new stuff. There are some great stuff offered. First thing that caught my eye was the Siberian kale and cockscomb.
I don't have much now, pesky house fire and all, but can collect as things are available, wild plum & persimmon. Burdock, dogwood, and other wild grown Ozark plants lol.

Hi, Jennifer...to PM someone just click on their name and you will be able to see what to do from there.
I would love to trade for some burdock seed...my list is early in this thread...maybe you will find something you would like. We have curly dock everywhere but I haven't seen burdock in years.

Though it is way too early for seed I bet I could find a baby plant I could dig up. It is tap rooted but I think tiny plant after the rain might make digging possible. Must be something with my phone but I can't click on names.
I have all kinds of weeds in my pastures but can't identify most. I plan to get a consultation

Darn, I pretty much just went through my 10 years plus saved seed and tossed all but those from the last 2 years into various compost piles and pots (hoping some are still viable and will surprise me), so I only have small quantities of things I intend to plant this year (or already have). I do have a ton of luffa and white cushaw squash seeds if anyone wants those. Here is what I have now and what I will have by end of summer/early fall if anyone cares to keep in touch until then.

I currently have:

- Luffa - probably enough for 50 swaps of 10 seeds each (or more seeds if you need them)
- White Cushaw squash - same as above
- Blackberry and Purple Passionfruit suckers (They are taking over my garden -- they sprout everywhere, like kudzu). I am not sure how to ship these, but maybe I could wrap them in damp moss or paper and they would do okay for a few days in transit. Anybody have experience doing this?
- Baptisia australis (native wildflower -- also called False wild indigo) (only a few of these now, but more after I gather this season's seeds)
- Marigolds (no named varieties -- these are mixed from years of reseeding and crossing in my garden)
- Tomato Riesentraube (only enough for two or three swaps)

What I will have by season's end:
Tomatoes:
Riesentraube
Black from Tula
Cherokee Purple
Carbon

Peppers:
King of the North (sweet bell)
Serrano Tampequino
Red Savina Habenero
Chiltepin (these are the true, wild peppers - round and pea-sized)
Chili pequins

Greens:
Malabar spinach
Kale, dwarf Siberian
Swiss chard, fordhook giant
Mustard, giant southern
Chinese pak choi
Arugula

Herbs:
Parsley, Italian flat-leaf
Oregano
Thyme
Broadleaf sage
Basil, licorice
Basil, Thai sweet
Basil, Emily
Spearmint
Borage
Garlic chives
Lemon balm
Rue
Fennel
Leeks
Chia
Shungika
Spilanthes (toothache plant)
Stevia (fingers crossed it does better this year!)

Melons, squashes, etc.:
Buffalo gourd (native melon)
Poona Kheera cucumbers
Tatume squash
Lemon squash
Spaghetti squash
Yellow crookneck squash
Italian edible gourd (called Serpente di Sicilia because it looks like a huge snake -- but tastes like a delicious squash)

Grains and Beans:
Amaranth, love lies bleeding
Amaranth, orange giant
Amaranth, red caloo
Sorghum, sugar drip
Beans, Arikara yellow
Beans, Henderson's black valentine
Beans, blue-speckled tepary
Beans, Hidatsa red indian

Shrubs and Trees (non-native):
Purple passion flower
Strawberry guava (they may not bear fruit this year, but who knows)
Jujube
Pomegranate, dwarf (they may not bear fruit this year, but who knows)


Fruiting Shrubs and Trees (native):
Blackberries
Pawpaw (haven't gotten large enough for fruits yet, but will watch and keep you posted)
Fragrant and staghorn sumac (fruits make great lemonade and dried make a great lemon-pepper substitute for seasoning)
Wild plum
Serviceberry
Persimmon
Flowering dogwood
eastern red cedar (juniper)


Wildflowers & native plants:
We have 75 acres (in the SW Missouri Ozarks) of which about 50 is restored native glades, so we have more wildflowers growing here than you can shake a stick at. We also back up against Mark Twain National Forest, so there are a lot of native woodland plants to gather seeds from. (Don't worry. I am a rabid environmentalist -- I NEVER dig up wild plants and I only gather seeds sparingly where they are abundant.) If you consult a native plant guide and want some seeds of anything that naturally grows here, please let me know by PM ASAP so I can be on the watch for them as they pop up. Flowers, shrubs and trees are pretty much all well-known by me, but I may have a bit of confusion with some of the grasses and sedges. I will do my best to ID whatever you like because it is a passion of mine to get as many people as possible to "grow native".


What I want:

- Native and Exotic Fruits, Melons, Squashes capable of growing in USDA zones 6, 7 or 8 (with protection) -- would love tea seeds (Camillia sinensis), heirloom apples and blueberries
- Herbs (especially, clary sage, horehound, French tarragon, unusual basils and mints, white sage, stinging nettles, lemongrass, fenugreek, chamomile, lavender, marshmallow, mugwort, etc.)
- Almost any kind of flower seeds, but especially natives, edibles and those attractive to bees and other pollinators
- Lilac and hibiscus shrubs, roses (seeds or starts)
- Horseradish, rhubarb, asparagus

Anything interesting or unusual really -- we love to experiment.

hey cool i want to post a list and do some trading =)

@deb stephens- i have a bunch of the things you are looking for, some hibiscus(small amounts), i have six or more varieties of rose seeds, one a wild rose, chamomile, mugwort (chinese mugwort) and been getting a big variety of different basils, salvia, and other herbs.

i have sent cuttings in the mail, its kinda awkward but it works out usually...just wrap the end with a wet paper towel and then tape a baggie around the bottom. then sometimes i wrap the whole thing with paper, or even throw it in a plastic baggie (if you put other seeds in there they also need to be wrapped and sealed in a baggie so they dont get moist in the envelope)

i have to go do some stuff ...i'll come back and post a list....

ok
i edited my trade list.... i've done a lot of trades at this site so i have a list posted here:

http://www.gardenweb.com/members/exch/leilahamaya

plus i will write a shorter permies list with a few additional things.
i only have a very small amount of most of these, kind of a special trade cause these are leftover from what i just planted.
unless i put a * next to it - to indicate i can send a larger amount, or can do multiple trades, thats stuff i regularly have and will have.

what i have to trade:
malva alcea fastigiata - musk mallow
confederate rose hibiscus- hibiscus mutabilis
common mallow -"cheese"- malva neglecta*
rose of sharon - mixed colors - hibiscus syriacus, theres a few that are sorted by color
hardy hibiscus, mixed colors - pink, red, white and white with red eye*

strawberry spinach
blue borage (small amount will have lots more soon)*
love in a mist - nigella- blue ****
yellow guava, trade 2013
chinese mugwort Artemisia argyi*
viola tricolor, and another which is also tricolor but much darker purple colors*
wild strawberry "woodland" (very small amount left but will have more in a while, sprouted excellent in my recent test, from my garden)

wild rose, i wish i knew the exact variety, rosa rugosa was my best guess but i am not sure, northern cali has a lot of different wild roses apparently
* i have tons of wild rose seeds *

other roses, small fuschia rose with a long hip, two different white roses, a large pink rose, another unknown color

mullein *
flax - linum bienne****
flax - common- blue flax*****
arugula- common*****

wild arugula - sylvetta, my garden
indigofera suffruticosa (upright indigo)
salvia, small amount leftover from recently sprouting a bunch- coral nymph, pineapple sage (from my garden), lady in red, tall red- scarlet sage- salvia splendens


as for what i want in trade mostly i am looking for fruit that will grow here (temperate rainforest), any berries, any grapes, wild edibles, kiwis, fruit and nut tree seeds.
secondly i am looking for greens, husk tomato/tomatillo/groundcherry, peas, beets, carrots, nasturtiums, violets
or check my wanted list or make a suggestion
i'm definitely open to plants i dont know yet that i want to grow =)

Good evening!

I am just starting my garden on some newly inherited property in northwest Arkansas, zone: 7B. I am after any seeds I can get, I bought some seeds online as a starting point to motivate me towards a garden. I don't have anything more than Red Savina Habanero seeds at present, but if anyone wants some I have a bit to spare.

i edited my trade list.... i've done a lot of trades at this site so i have a list posted here:

http://www.gardenweb.com/members/exch/leilahamaya

plus i will write a shorter permies list with a few additional things.
i only have a very small amount of most of these, kind of a special trade cause these are leftover from what i just planted.
unless i put a * next to it - to indicate i can send a larger amount, or can do multiple trades, thats stuff i regularly have and will have.

what i have to trade:
malva alcea fastigiata - musk mallow
confederate rose hibiscus- hibiscus mutabilis
common mallow -"cheese"- malva neglecta*
rose of sharon - mixed colors - hibiscus syriacus, theres a few that are sorted by color
hardy hibiscus, mixed colors - pink, red, white and white with red eye*

strawberry spinach
love in a mist - nigella- blue ****
yellow guava, trade 2013
chinese mugwort Artemisia argyi*
viola tricolor, and another which is also tricolor but much darker purple colors*


wild rose
* i have tons of wild rose seeds *

other roses, small fuschia rose with a long hip, two different white roses, a large pink rose, another unknown color

mullein *
flax - linum bienne****
flax - common- blue flax*****
arugula/roquette- common*****
red russian winter kale ****
chamomile - common - german*
wild arugula - sylvetta, my garden
indigofera suffruticosa (upright indigo)
salvia, small amount leftover from recently sprouting a bunch- coral nymph, lady in red, tall red- scarlet sage- salvia splendens, others


as for what i want in trade mostly i am looking for fruit that will grow here, any berries, any grapes, wild edibles, kiwis, fruit and nut tree seeds.
secondly i am looking for greens, husk tomato/tomatillo/groundcherry, peas, beets, carrots, nasturtiums, violets
or check my wanted list or make a suggestion
i'm definitely open to plants i dont know yet that i want to grow =)


i still have most of this stuff i listed, and a lot more on that other list, if anyone wants to trade.
ive been doing tons of seed trading and harvesting, so i have a lot of different stuff right now, actually much more than i could list.

been finding old abandoned orchards also and foraging for wild foods/fruits, and been finding some cool stuff. have a ton of our wild grapes, and recently found some beautiful persimmon trees nearby...the fruit isnt even ripe yet, but i am looking forward to going and checking it out later....the persimmons i found are a very interesting shape....

I'm just getting started, and don't have much to offer.
Where I live I have tons of Yaupon Holly (ilex vomitoria) which is a woody shrub which contains caffeine in its leaves. If anyone is interested, let me know and we'll figure out what the best way to propagate it is. I have _tons_ of this, so if you want any let me know.

Black Locust seed/slips/saplings?

Does anyone have black locust seeds that they'd be willing to share with me so I can get some going in my "orchard" area?

What's the best way to propogate black locust? I'd guess the seeds are convenient... but that's just a guess.
