Seed Swapping and Trading - Garden Classified

Seed trading is fun and you're able to get rid of seeds you longer need for the ones you do want. Just use the comment field below to list what seeds you're looking for, seeds that you're wanting to get rid or donate to someone else or seeds that you'd like to make a trade with. Be sure to leave either your mailing address or an e-mail address for folks to contact you. 

*I recommend using the phrase "resident or occupant" instead of your name and P.O. boxes are always a good idea. Leaving your twitter handle is also a common thing to do.  

Seed swapping or just donating vegetable and flower seeds are a great way to clean out your seed storage containers. Sometimes I'll have an excess of one particular seed variety. There's also folks out there that are either looking to supplement their monthly grocery bill by growing their own food or even folks that like to receive seed donations because, they grow crops for the hungry. 

I always like to see folks posting unusual seeds that are not easily available. It's ok to request a self addressed stamped envelope (SASE) if you have a lot of seeds to give away and it "weeds" out the serious gardeners. 

If you're doing an even trade, it's best for both parties to pay for shipping on their own envelope. Most seeds cost only 49¢ US postal stamp or Forever Stamp to mail. If you think that your envelope weighs more than 3 oz, get it weighed by USPS or else it may be returned to you for more postage.

It's always a good idea to check with your local USPS - Dept of Agriculture to ensure that you can except particular seeds in your area. Some counties in US have sensitive agriculture zones. 

*This is a community board for seed trading and exchanging and garden topics only. Use the comment field to leave a seed request or garden offer. Happy Gardening!
