It became obvious that most of the posts in the buy, swap and give away forum are now a complete waste of time because they expired years ago. So, I figured I would make a single thread that people can use to ask for things they need, particularly plants or seeds.
When you get the item you asked for, delete your request or edit it so it is clear you got it. It's important to keep the thread current.
Offer to pay for postage - or to collect. Think about waiting to a garden visit to collect. Remember, if people are offering you something for free, they are doing you a favour.
So, all you need do is add to this thread.
I have a Bulk 25gm Packet of Seeds, PERMACULTURE SEED MIX to give away at Susan's GV on Saturday. The packet will cover a 15 square metre area. If there are a couple of members who would like to share the packet that would be nice. Packet contains seeds of, Vegetables, Herbs & Flowers (Flowers suitable for Companion Planting).
I'm currently looking for:
I can offer Malabar chestnut and coffee seedlings, cuttings of most things mentioned on my profile page and I have a whole bunch of seeds, which are too numerous to list here.
where are you - if you want to trip out to king scrub we have yakon and chokos also some jicama seeds
I'm at the back of Morayfield, near Sheep Station Reserve, so we're practically neighbours. I'll send a friend invite so we can tee something up.
I sent you a friend invite if you like to reply.
Hi Nigel, I think I have a bunch of sprouted choko still or will once the new vines start producing. Will let you know soon.
Thanks to those who offered sprouted chokos and yakon. I now have what I need, thanks to a visit from Vivienne.
congrats you are still welcome to visit here anytime -
Actually, I'd love to hit you up some time Mary-Ann. I'd really love to get an understanding of Col's amazing automation processes. We just need to tell him to talk real slow because I'm not a real quick learner.
anytime .he normally speaks slower than on the videos - there were time restraints ... he wrote all the programming himself - singles couples or small groups (5 -10) are best so you can ask questions
I'd be up for that too.
If you let me know a date and time that suits you guys, I'll make an event and carefully limit the numbers. Thanks heaps Mary-Ann. (Oh, that was a joke about the speaking slow, by the way. Damn, I gotta work on that comedy routine.)
