  • Random Excess Seed Swap Circle 2019

    Seed swaps are always exciting and this is one is going to be VERY exciting.
    Its open to all Grapes who joined before today, no restrictions on number of posts!!

    You can send in as many packets of seeds as you like (but more than 5) - and you will get the same number back - which will be a random selection.

    The seeds you send must be within date, nothing past its sow by date. They can be vegetables or flowers.

    For example, you may have opened a packet, sown what you needed and have some left over to swap. Split these seeds into smaller quantities, like this:-

    6-10 tomato/pepper/aubergines/squashes
    10-15 beans/peas
    30 brassicas/lettuces
    50 mustard/radish
    100 carrots/onions
    Flowers - a reasonable number.

    Label each packet with:-

    Veg type/variety/date bought/expiry date from original bag if you have it/your Grape name

    Example - if you have 20 tom seeds, 8 squash seeds and 111 onion seeds left over; pack the toms into 2 bags, the squashes into 1 bag and the onions into 2 and send 5 bags in. You will get 5 random bags back. If you have 200 tomato seeds, and 500 carrot seeds, pack the toms into 20 bags, and the carrots into 5, send all 25 bags in and you will get 25 random bags back.

    If you are interested - you have until the 15th of June to send in your seeds.Please post on here that you are interested.

            Of course you can, mysteryduck.
            Start finding the seeds you want to swap and some envelope/small bags to pack them in.
            Remember, the more you send, the more you'll have back

                I'm in. This sounds like the sort of level of complexity I can handle. i.e. easy. ;-)

                        I’ve never done a swap before. This is exciting! Where do we send the seeds VC?

                          I told you it would be exciting.
                          We'll wait a bit closer to the middle of June and see how many are in. Then send you all an address to send the seeds - and an SAE for their return.
