Information

Seed swappers

In this group, you can list the seeds you are willing to share when you can't make it to the Garden visits. Anybody who wishes to get seeds can become friends with the donor and send a message to get their postal address. You then send your own self-addressed and stamped envelope and seed packaging to the donor for them to return by post. Hope this makes sense :-)

Michael Cahill - Likewise about the indigenous food links. You will find a bigger audience by posting in the forum (I have moved the information for you HERE). Members can access the information in future also, unlike the email message you sent out which will disappear into the ether :)

Michael Cahill - Thanks for the message about water chestnuts available. You might find a bigger audience if you post your offer under the general Forum (will be visible to all members of BLF, not just this group) HERE.

I like the Jerusalem artichoke plants and flowers, they can have their 'fill in' perennial space in my garden, if I remember correctly they can handle a shady spot and of course they are a food source that some people can tolerate better than others.

I have planted sunflowers often for the happy dominant flower, yes I leave them to feed the birds, they are stalky annuals and require a sunny spot.

Just for flowers? How about growing some Sunflowers - bigger flowers and seeds are just bird seed, cheap as.

Hi Ania, I would love some. Are you coming to the Garden visit Christmas party?

Comment by Ania on December 6, 2013 at 20:54
I have lots of seeds I can only call "Asian parsnip".. Honestly you won't need many, I grew 3 last winter, harvested seed from one, a beautiful growing experience.. A fountain of white flowers about 90cm tall. I'm new to this website so not too sure how this works but happy to mail seed.

I also have a heap of tiny Ping Tung eggplants coming up.

I'll have to try to seperate them, but ultimately wayyyy more than I can ever use. If I have success transplanting people are welcome to them (and thank you to Joseph for giving me the seed).
