Do you put your best seeds on your tradelist?
While my tradelist is hopelessly out of date I put almost everything that I have on it. I read early on in my trading here a post by another Newbie trader, who asked 'Why do I not get responses to my posts?". The answer was enlightening. If you are asking for a special, hard to find, or named variety of seed and all you have on your tradelist is very run of the mill seed then chances are the people who have those seeds will not respond. I took that persons advice to heart and put my best seeds out there and have had great success in trading ever since.
I have had very few people email me out of the blue with wanting seed and I would say that I have some fairly nice seeds on my list (mostly named varieties and commercial seeds)
I don't trade with those folks who don't have tradelists as I see that as an opportunity for someone to scam me. This has happened once or twice, where I have asked for a specific seed such as echinacea 'Vintage Wine' and on growing the seed found out that it was something far different such as gaillardia.
So do you or don't you? Do you trust your traders to be truthful with or without a tradelist? Does it make any difference at all? Wanting to here from you, Les
