I can hook you up with Prunella vulgaris and Anise hyssop. What do you mean by 'elderflower'?

Thanks for the offer, Did you find anything you wanted on my list or would you prefer postage?

Elderflower seems to be also known by Elderberry,

Elder Flower
Botanical Name: Sambuccus canadensis

Elderflower is very high in antioxidants and vitamins and has traditional uses in treating respiratory illnesses and topical application for skin complaints.

As well as forming part of the edible garden, it can also be used as a feature plant in the garden. The dark green, compound leaves are pinnate or bipinnate with leaflets arranged oppositely around the stem, creating an overall length of up to 30 cm or more. Each leaflet has serrate edges, is quite large and may measure 3-12cm long by 2-6cm wide. The fragrant white flowers are large and bloom in inflorescences or clusters, about 30 cm in width. These are followed by the blue berry like fruits, but the plant may have both flowers and fruit for several weeks.

There are many uses for the fruit of the elderflower plant, as both a food and a health supplement. The many varieties of elder have been used all over the world for many centuries. Native Americans valued elderflower as a medicinal herb and used it to treat many conditions. Other uses included repelling insects and creation of a black dye from the bark.

It seemed worth trying to grow :)

Hi Brizee, I thought you might have meant Sambucus sp. but I wanted to make sure. I have seeds of that as well.

I did see a few interesting things on your have list. I've been wanting to try growing some Black Krim tomatoes.

I'll send you an email. If you don't get it, try emailing me directly.

RE: WANTED: Trying to put a dent in my Want List.

hi, not sure I have much you are interested in, but please check my list if you want to trade any of your luffa/loofah or any tomatoes (epec heirlooms)

btw, salvia divinorum almost never seeds, and often seeds are sterile, so you will most likely need to find a cutting, which has become increasingly difficult.

RE: WANTED: Trying to put a dent in my Want List.

@djmasturbeat thanks for the info, I had read that they were hard to seed and didn't often germinate, but I figured not often meant it was possible if someone happened to have any. Hopefully I will be able to manage to get my hands on a couple of cuttings eventually. I am sending you a pm regarding a trade.
