I live in Queensland and am after a few key lime/common lime seeds or if possible a fresh fruit of one as they seeds do not like to be dried out. Please message me if you have some available to send.

I have marigold flowers, the non edible variety... here is a pretty crappy photo of them :oops:

If you want some seeds PM me your address and I will post them as soon as I get a chance, I was also given some seeds recently for some edible variety which I could give you a few.

Hi
I've got some Columbine seeds to offer, some double pink, single pink and white, and whites that may have cross pollinated. Can PM me if you want to swap with vegie seeds or similar flowers (please nothing too spreading).



Thanks Cass

Hi,

I've got fresh dill and parsley (mix of flat and curly leaf) seeds. Also some loose leaf lettuce, its a bit of a hybrid from my backyard, grows quite well and is definately edible.

Cheers
Naomi

Hello,

Well I started digging the Jerusalem Artichokes up tonight.. and I now have more than I will ever want to eat or replant!

So I am offering them to swap, for other garden or chookie stuff. Doesn't matter what; bulbs, berry canes or runners, rose cuttings etc. I probably have enough veg seeds here to keep a small country going, so don't need any of those, unless they are unusual (i.e not available from Diggers!)

Or I will PM you my address and you can post me a self addressed stamped satchel, and I will just send you some if you don't have anything to swap.

I have some mixed Balsam seeds to giveaway or swap, if anyone is interested. Most will be pale pink singles (since that's what I've labeled the bag as) but there may be a few oranges, reds, varigateds, purples etc. that have slipped in. Our birds seem to go mad for the flowers when they are out freeranging.

Our balsams seem to be very hardy, and selfseed when they die off each season, so once you've planted a few they usually take care of themselves. All they need is a bit of sun (they grown best in full sun or part shade, but we'd had a few crop up in full shade areas too), and a bit of water everynow and then. The only downside is taht they can be a tad invasive - we moved our plants from one bed to another, and we still get the odd balsam popping up in the old bed, lol!

Will definitly have a couple of varieties of lettuce a bit later in the season (cos, looseleaf; red iceburg, etc); as well as 5 colour silverbeet; spinach. Will likely have some heirloom varieties of tomatoes; as well. Later on will be able to provide iris (purple/white) rhizomes and marionberry and raspberry cuttings.

My wishlist is rhubarb crowns; corn (extra sweet or popcorn varieties); comfry; lucerne; or flower bulbs (ie.; tulips; daffodiles; bearded iris, etc. etc.).
I also would consider swapping for appleyard duck eggs (!); muscovy duck eggs; turkey eggs (!), guinea fowl eggs; brown leghorn eggs (!).
I also have guinea fowl; light sussex, and appleyard eggs that will be available a bit later in the season.
Thanks!

I have a few types of pelargonium that grow easily from cuttings.
ImageImage
I even have some dark purple rooted cuttings from last year in pots (some of them are flowering), or can easily take more cuttings.
Image
I also have a range of canna lilies in scarlet, bright orange, yellow, speckled yellow (called Cleopatra) and even a salmon pink one.
Image

These things are all taking over my front garden (i gave 'em too much dynamic lifter). I'll be having a hard prune of the pelargoniums some time soon before they succeed in their bid for world domination. The cannas need thinning out too.

Happy to give away or to swap for anything I don't have that you might have too much of, garden- or chook-wise!

hla, I would love some of those dark purple pelargoniums, the colour is gorgeous. I don't really have anything to swap as my garden is only new. If these are still available, could please let me know what you would need to send me some cuttings??

Snowie.
