Hello,

I'm trying to expand the number of edible perennials on our property, and I was wondering if anyone on here would want to try a plant swap. I've had really good luck with a few people sending seeds through these forums, but I'm greedy and I really want some rooted cuttings. I'm thinking shipping plants that are wrapped in a moist paper towel and a couple of layers of saran wrap, not potted (due to shipping prices).

Here's a list of the stuff I'm interested in, although I'm super excited for anything else, too.

Nanking cherry (especially tasty ones!)
Any edible nut trees
Gooseberries
Any currants other than red and black (already have those)

Here's what I can offer, although some of these things will still need a couple of months to grow and/or root:
Sea buckthorn
Black currants (from supposedly a Siberian rootstock) - only took cuttings the other day
Goji- only took cuttings the other day
Hardy kiwi - will start taking cuttings in the next few days
seeds - sea buckthorn, black and white mulberry.

Let me know if anyone is interested!

You might get better luck if you were to put what area your in. Say Northern Ontario for example.

Look up Seedy Saturdays (also they do exchanges on Sundays)
Hundreds get together for the seed exchanges and swaps as well as purchases.
Good luck.

My bad, I'm in NB. I missed all the seedy Saturdays this year, but I'm looking for rooted perennials more so than for seeds... Anyone on here?

hey S Usvy! I'm just outside of St Andrews, wanna do some swaps this year? I will have strawberries for sure (Holyoke) and hopefully some gooseberries, haskap and blueberries.

just started my patch last year, so I'm looking for any and everything!

Hey Mike!

Sorry I'm slow... What plants are you looking for? I can get some raspberry canes (unknown but tasty and prolific), black currants (a bit later in the year), and strawberries (Sable). Can also get some perennial herbs and things (sage, creeping thyme, mint, oregano, rosemary, horseradish, and garden sorrel [the big leaved-kind, not the weedy tiny kind]). Would be definitely interested in swapping if you are
