MY HAVE's SEED TRADING LIST
I have too many seeds to mention here. You find and see them all here: http://www.freewebs.com/belevenissen-van-een-tuinkabouter/ap... For the returning piggies, there is the "newly added" tab. That will save you from working your way through 2.000 varieties.......

If you want any seeds from me (and you can have as many as you want!), please ALWAYS send me a c-mail as I'm particularly busy and may miss you on the chatting threads. Also, if you can, please oink all the seeds you want at the same time. That will save me a lot of effort! For the same reason I will be oinking from you for more than the daily limit, but will probably do so once (or twice if you keep adding seeds to your list or thrice because I simply can't help myself......). Mama-Piggy Ella aggrees with all this!


PLEASE, READ THIS FIRST BEFORE YOU START OINKING AWAY!

In my own gardens (and also those of others) and during my travels I've collected the seeds of many plant species. Lots of people from abroad send me their spare seeds so I can make other garden gnomes happy with them.

The seeds will be packaged well and come with a label (at least most of them). These labels, however, are in Dutch as most of my customers are. In my webstore you will find a description of how to sow and grow the seeds of your choise, and in which zone they will do best. This will make it easier for you to decide wether the seeds you fancy will really work for you. The webstore is bilingual, sometimes you may need to scroll down a little to see the English info.

The seeds is usually sufficient for an urban backyard (Dutch size). Tropical and rare species usually amount from 1-5 seeds).

The plants mentioned in the store are the PARENTS of the seeds I will send. Most of them are species, i.e. not crossbred hybrids. If the parent is a hybrid, it can be recognised by an added names between "...". These seeds may very well end up as plants that resemble the picture on the website, but there is no guarantee. However, this may result in something unexpected and totally delightful!

The age of the seeds varies betwee one and three seasons. That means that most of them are no older than 3 years. However, as not all of the stem from my own garden and I sometimes loose track because of the sheer amount of differen species, some may be older. However, that a seed is older than three years, does not always mean it does not germinate at all. It just takes a while longer......

MY SEED WISH LIST
I'm in for almost everything, especially if it's either special / rare / typically American (even if you would consider it a weed!) / has garish or blowsy blooms / a heirloom vegetable / a medicinal herb / an unusual kitchen herb.

I'm also interested in tropical fruits.

If you have large quantities of any kind of seed that you want to get rid of, I'm interested too.

More specifically, I'm looking for:
Any kind of coleus
Abutilon
Brugmansia
Liriope
Datura inoxia
Any kind of ascleias
Any kind of bright coloured zinnia
Any kind of coreopsis
Clitoria terneata
Any kind of alyssum
Euphorbia marginata

THINGS I WOULD CARE NOT TO GET
Don't think that exists!

A BIT ABOUT MY GARDEN
In the long, hot summer of 2003 we moved to our first suburban paradise close to the sea. The garden turned out to be a peculiarly shaped bit of land. The layout was fine but much of the plant life had died. Only a couple of shrubs were still standing. I knew little of gardening but was soon cought by the virus. In the long, hot summer of 2003 we moved from a 1930's appartment to our first suburban paradise. Our garden turned out to be a peculiarly shaped bit of land, about 50 square meters in size. We liked the way it was laid out, but most of the plants had died.
Even before the smell of fresh paint had faded, I was already infected by the garden virus. While the men were busy sawing and hammering inside, I was already putting my first plants into the soil. Hydrangea's, for instance: in full sun. I had a lot to learn......
An addiction was born: in the years that followed I read everything I could put my hands on. I learned how to sow and how to take cuttings. By doing so, I developed a real fascination for the many different kinds of plants.
The garden soil wasn't too bad: all it needed was loads of compost. It drains very well which is a blessing in winter but a curse in summer. During dry periods I have to water it every other day (in cooler periods) or even every day (in warmer ones). Someday there will get myself an automatic watering system.....
Two terraces, one cirkel and one square, form the basis of our backyard. They are flanked by two borders. The garden is completely screened off by wooden fences covered with climbing plants. Every border houses a tree (an Atlas cedar and a Laburnum) and some shrubs, which I train upward to cover the fences. In one border sits a wooden barrel (well, half of it) that I turned into a miniature pond. In between I squeeze as many hardy and annual plants as I can. Lots of patio plants and herbs in pots fill every nook and corner.
We do not have much of a front garden. In fact it looks more like a big window box. It is in a very sunny spot and its soil is extremely dry. Putting a plant in it is always a gamble because you never now if it's going to make it through summer. However, those who do usually survive winter too, even petunia's, Nemesia's and Osteospermums!
We live close by the sea. Too distant to be bothered by salty sea breezes but close enought to profit from the water's warm temperature in winter. We actually have very little frost here. In winter only the really tropical plants have to be moved inside, the rest can do with little or no protection.
At the moment I am still going through that phase in which every plant is fascinating and thus worth trying. This means I do not have a real planting scheme. One can easily say that in summer my borders are completely disorganised while in winter they are quite bare. This does not bother me in the least: my garden flowers from february to december and always looks cheerful. More experienced gardeners say this phase will pass and I will focus on just a few plant families or on a certain colour. To be honest, I really hope I will not!
All in all I'm an emotional kind of gardener. Having my hands in the soil and my nose between the flowers makes me happy. Husband Harry, who tends to the poetic, puts it like this: with my head in the clouds and the world at my feet!

In the summer of 2006 I finally obtained my own allotment. Below you can see how a jungle of brambles and nettles changed, slowly but surely, into a little paradise. Here I planned to grow my own fruits but also vegetables, mainly the ones of which we eat the fruits or seeds. That is why we called it "The Court of Sweetness". This is the (again inadequate) translation of the Dutch "Hof der Zoetheid", a word play for "Lof der Zotheid". This is a famous book by Desiderius Erasmus, who lived in the 16th Century. "Zotheid" means insanity and that is exactly how we felt when we started clearing the allotment.
