Hunting For Seeds

Hi everyone,

Anyone out there have any of these flower seeds? I'm running low on perennials. I have Blue Lake 274 Bush Bean and Danver's Half Long Carrot seeds to trade (labeled for 2012-commercial seed). Here's what I'm looking for:

Cosmos "Double Click Cranberries" (or other dark colors)
Amaranthus "Love Lies Bleeding"
Strawflower "Swiss Giants"
Alyssum "Aphrodite Bold Mix"

Butterfly Bush
Butterfly Weed
Maltese Cross
Sweet Violets (Viola odorata)
Red Hot Pokers
Gaura "The Bride"

How's your Winter Sowing coming along? Personally, I can't wait until these cold snaps go away and I start seeing sprouts in my containers. Most of these I plan on planting at my local community theatre, along of what I have already sown.

I have tons of Zinnias and some Butterflyweed. I also have wild-type Verbenas and possible some annual Verbena Boniarensis. Send me an email with your address and I'll send some out. Do you have a preference re color or size on the Zinnias? I can just send a variety. All were collected in my garden, so may have crossed with one another. I had some incredible orange/pink marbled flowers last year, so I saved seeds from those, as well as more traditional types.

Happy Sowing and stay warm!


RE: Hunting For Seeds

Thank you, Martha!

I'll be sending you an e-mail shortly! I don't have a preference for the Zinnias, but the marbled flowers you got sound wonderful.

I Have a pack of seeds from a recent trade marked as milkweed for monarch butterflies. would you be interested? also perhaps in the spring, maybe you'd like a butterfly bush plant? i have yellow, white, purple in my yard! :)

RE: Hunting For Seeds

Michael, thanks for the offer, but I have enough milkweed seeds already sown. I'll keep you in mind about the butterfly bush.
