I'd like you to get them. If you would like I can send you a list of my doubles in my personal stash and you can pick from there. Does that sound like a deal?

Your very very welcome Penny.

Kenny don't let me forget about getting you that list. I can't do it today. I had appointments this morning and I have more this evening and in between I need a nap. But I don't think I have anything scheduled for tomorrow.

Nothing as of yesterday. I will let you know if they come in the mail today.I've been busy with work stuff so it has kept me a little busy and not thinking about all those wonderful seeds that are in the package. Tammy, did I send out Salvia "Visat Red" seeds. (I should've kept a list of what I sent).If so, just to whoever got them I germinated some of the seeds in September, this is what they look like today.  -

I don't think so cancolgirl. Those plants do look healthy. But I don't remember any salvia at all in the fall fling. But I could be wrong there might have been one or two. I don't have an alphabetical listing of all the seeds in the trade and with over 1000 packets it's hard to remember them all lol. It doesn't help that my memory is shot.

Thanks for the pictures though.

whoohooo!!!!! [clappy] [clappy] [clappy] It's here. I am happy. Got quite a few from my little wishlist. Thanks Tammy. A lot of surprises and one really good surprise, thanks to whoever put in the Dogwood seeds, I've been trying to get tree and bush seeds, so that was a nice treat. I will have to quit my job next spring to get everything ready for summer.

lol. I'm so glad they arrived. And I'm glad that you got some of the things that you wanted. I know what you mean about trying to get everything ready. Just the research for where would go good with what seems like a full time job and that's before I till the soil. Or fill the first starter tray lol. I'm glad they arrived.

Hey Kennyso I got your pm. Your so right about the price of dirt. That's why I started composting. It's much cheaper. Enjoy the seeds and I'll send the others out in just a little while. Take care.

Woohoo that means that everyone has received their seeds. I guess that means the fall fling is officially closed. I'll miss it. We'll have to start a string somewhere where we plan what we are going to do with all our goodies lol.

Tammy, I need help on a pack of seeds I got from person #9. They are called 'Pastel Pea Vines', but there are 3 latin names these could be....some are tropical and some are hardy to Z2.

If you know who #9 is, could you send them email and ask them to please go to this webpage at Dave's Plant Files and ask them which one it most closely resembles? (They have to scroll down)

One of them is an endangered species, but they all are wonderful...just need to know how to sao them.

Thanks,

Hi PartyGirl, I sent off a pm and hopefully you'll have your information in a few days. I'm glad you seem to be enjoying your seeds.

Hi PartyGirl,

The following is the information available about the seeds you received. I'm sorry the picture didn't paste. I'm not all that computer literate.

Its not on those pages.BUT I have a photo.but no name.I was in a round robin vine seed tradeing group about 3 years ago & ended up with this.It was labled as pastel pea vine& was listed as attracting butterflys.

I did try searching it once.Closest I came was a flat pea vine,but seeds don't match,but flowers are similar.

So I am germinating a few of the seeds from the seed swap. I sowed them Nov 22nd. And so far in less than a week, the love-lies-bleeding started germinating, I sowed 5 of these seeds, yesterday a second one broke thru. So pretty. I am waiting for the wonder egg & siberian iris to germinate. I also sowed poppy and coneflower seeds, and from those only the poppy broke out sometime between last night and this morning.

Sibyl thanks for the love-lies-bleeding. Hany idea how long it takes for it to flower. I know a little premature considering it just germinated, but I have nothing better to do during the winter months.
