MY SEED WISH LIST
Stamps! (used, and still on paper is fine) I collect stamps, especially anything to do with wildlife, horses, whales, insects and plants. (USA 59 cent herbs or the bonsai series) international, domestic, anything.

Hard to find North American Natives, especially ones that are popular for bees or butterflies.

White Coneflower- (Echinacea) 'Purity' or 'White Swan'
Salvia (especially reds but will take any)
extra Asclepias variegata
Phacelia franklinii
Phacelia hastata
Phacelia purshii
Phacelia sericea
Pycnanthemum albescens
Pycnanthemum muticum
Phlox paniculata - any colours
Any Foxglove except "Camelot Pink" (have lots of it now)

Maybe some:
leaf lettuces
heirloom quick to ripen tomato

Don't forget the stamps! :P

THINGS I WOULD CARE NOT TO GET
invasives
Buddleia
non-natives to North America that seed readily
edible beans or legumes (other than ornamental flowers) as I am anaphalactic allergic to them...sadly I can no longer eat them (I grew up munching snap peas and tomatoes from the garden...very few made it to moms table..)

A BIT ABOUT MY GARDEN
Very full after this year.
I have a little full sun and a little part shade, I have filled the full sun areas nicely now but still always see more that I want to try...
I have a little grass left and it may disappear even more next year...(aw who am I kidding... at this rate next it will be no grass and just a small rock walkway through the full yard of flowers...)

I love native plants. I am trying to get mostly natives flowers for the remaining space under my poplar tree, part shade or dappled shade. Still working on removing invasives (Garlic Mustard, Creeping Bellflower)

MY 2014 SEED SOWING JOURNAL AND NOTES SECTION
Was a bad seed moma and killed many of my newly germinated seedlings this spring. Doh!
Now have installed a automatic watering system and some shade cloth to try to do better in the future.
