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 :-)

Hi everyone, 

OK this is not about seeds but wondering if anyone is interested swapping me a hand full of worms for a couple empty worm farms. {they are 2nd hand - i have not used them since i killed off my worms in them! and i had been given them from scarlett} i did extremely well in the vege boxes! and wish i had never put my poor worms into the worm farms in saying that id like to start a worm farm again!

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).

I saved and dried the seed from Lissa's winter melon at the last garden visit if anyone wants some. Also tried to save the eggplant seeds but not sure that worked so well.

I have a large clump of lemon grass that someone is welcome to dig out and take at the Garden Visit on 20th. It's in a spot I no longer want it and I have another clump elsewhere.
