I'd like to find seeds for them or others in my list. I've got mostly flowers to trade and a few herbs.

If you have Dollar General stores in your area they usually sell liatris bulbs in the spring. Usually 10 for $2.50. I admire you for wanting seeds. They take about 5 years to bloom. You might consider both bulbs and seeds! Just wanted to pass that along.

I didn't know they took that long, I did start one from seed last year but I thought it was just being a runt. I never found this type at the dollar stores, but I might buy the bulbs instead then, want them for native butterflies

kitteh, I grew Liatris aspera, L. pycnostachya, and L. spicata from seed. I winter sowed them in January. All 3 bloomed their 2nd year.

I will look at your trade list. :)

Do any of the following interest you:

Pepper - Red Bell
Pepper - Yellow Bell
Tomato - Beefsteak (2012)
Native Flower - New York Ironweed (V. noveboracensis)
Native Flower - Purple Coneflower (E. purpurea)
Native Flower - Common Milkweed (A. syriaca)
Native Flower - Blackeyed Susans (mixed)

I'm interested in the country gentleman corn and the opal basil. My email is ajd1221@live.com (and I think we've traded before within the last few months).

Hi kitteh, if you still need herb seeds, I have a swap going on called Spring Forward Vine & Herb Swap. A lot of what you need is coming in and we would love to see you there. Don't worry if you don't have the 25 packs, just send in what you have if you are interested.


Here is a link that might be useful: Spring Forward Vine & Herb Swap
