I have a mix of commercial & gathered seed from my garden. All harvested seed is open pollinated. I will list the vegetable/herb seed first and then the flowers. Depending on how this goes (I'm a newbie at swapping seed).

Single, unopened commercial seed packets of unknown age. I suspect germination should be fairly good but can't guarantee it. No need to waste an oink, just ask!

7. Honeydew Melon, Sweet Delight (10 seeds) 1 available

9. Nemophila menziessi, Baby Blue Eyes (25 seeds) 1 available

10. GONE California Poppy, Appleblossom (20 seeds). These seeds are from 2008 but I direct sowed some this year and got plants. This should be enough to get a few plants.

11.GONE Sweet Pea, Janet Scott (10 seeds). From a sample seed pack.

ADDED 11/22/14

I'm listing daylily seeds. I have mostly older varieties of daylilies but in the last 2 years have added some newer ones. I went crazy this year doing crosses! Not sure what I was thinking since I can't possibly find room for so many plants! Each is 1 pack only.

1) Andes Legend x Monkey Giggles (13 seeds)GONE
2) Butterscotch Ruffles x House of Orange (14)
3) Collaboration x Inherited Wealth (14 seeds)GONE
4) Dot Paul x South Seas (13 seeds) GONE
5) Hampshire Hoyden x Oriental Silk (12 seeds) GONE
6) Holly Hill Reward x Double Sunset Glow (20)
7) Mt. Pinatubo Sunset x Tani (12 seeds)
8) Zada Mae x House of Orange (12 seeds)


1) Bok Choy, Toy Choy: 5 available, garden harvested. Miniature heads good for small gardens.

2) GONE Carrot, Caracas: commercial seed.

3) Dill, Mammoth Organic: 2 available, commercial seed.

4)Lettuce, Butter King Organic: 2 available, commercial seed. Wish I knew how it tastes. Skunks dug up all my lettuce this year!

5)Lettuce, NYBG Gourmet Blend: commercial seed. From the NY Botanical Gardens. A mix of Silvia, Dark Lollo Rossa, Flame, Paris Island Cos & Buttercrunch. Can't say if all are in the pack. GONE

6) Parsley, Giant Italian Organic: 1 available, commercial seed.

7) Sage, Organic: 2 available, garden harvested. Only 5 seeds per pack since I didn't harvest much seed.

8)Spinach, Bloomsdale Savoy Organic: 3 available, commercial seed.

9)Swiss Chard, Bright Lights: 2 available,commercial seed. Very tasty with large leaves with red, yellow, white & pink stems. Does well planted close together.

10)Tomato, Beefsteak: 2 available, commercial seed.

11)Tomato, Martino's Roma: commercial seed. Free sample pack. GONE

12) Tomato, Orange Strawberry:commercial seed. My favorite heirloom! Large orange fruits that have almost no seeds. Makes a nice sauce although you need to add other tomatoes if you want a red sauce. GONE


1) Alternantera, Purple Knight: commercial seed. Sample seed pack. GONE

2) Delphinium, Amour: 1 available, garden harvested. My only plant has sky blue flowers (see picture). Suspect all the seeds will produce the same as delphinium isn't popular here.

3) GONE Forget-Me-Not, Victoria Pink: garden harvested. Flowers change colors so sometimes blue and other times pink (see picture). Suspect the seeds will come true. Flower not popular here.

4) Heliotrope, Dwarf Marine: garden harvested. Smells great and is still blooming despite the cold weather. Seed should come true. GONE

5) GONE Lavatera, Dwarf Pink Blush: garden harvested. Beautiful flowers on bushy plants (see pictures). Does best in full sun. Much fewer flowers in partial shade. Seeds will most likely come true.

6) Marigold, Tiger Eyes: 1 available, garden harvested. Pretty French marigold but seed can be anything as marigolds are very popular in my neighborhood.

7) Marigold, Tomato Growing Secret: 2 available, garden harvested. Does the trick in repelling whitefly. Not a particularly pretty flower but will be a hybrid so can get anything.

8) Nasturtium, Whirlybird: commercial seed. GONE

9) Pansy, Antique Shades: 1 available, commercial seed. Bought because I grew this mix years ago & loved it. Not the same mix! Got white, yellow & blue flowers instead of pinks, lavenders. Pretty flowers but not what I expected.

10) Petunia, Double Grandiflora blend: commercial seed. GONE

11) Snapdragon, Frosted Sunset: garden harvested. Variegated foliage especially in cooler weather.

12) Snapdragon, Reminiscent mix: garden harvested. An open flowered snapdragon. Only had 2 colors: rose & yellow. GONE

13) Snapdragon, Reminiscent yellow: garden harvested. A very bright lemon yellow. Almost neon. GONE

14) Viola Fuji Dawn: commercial seed. Sample seed pack. GONE

15)GONE Virginia Stock, Spring Sparkle. garden harvested. Cute little flowers in dark pink, purple colors. Tolerates drought & neglect. Good for direct sowing. Still blooming despite cold weather. Sets tons of seed!

16) Zinnia, Cactus mix improved. 1 available, commercial seed. Sample seed pack.

17) Zinnia, Tudor:commercial seed. Sample seed pack. GONE

Pansies without blotches. Especially Pastel Butterflies.
Wahlenbergia Melton Blue Bird

Lobelia Fan Series-any color
Silene pendula
Nemophilia Snowstorm
Canna- any dwarf except red. Especially Tropical Rose
Poblano peppers (not organic okay)
Ice plant
Virginia Stock

Please nothing invasive, my neighbors will kill me! My garden is tiny by most standards so please no tall (2+ft) plants unless on my want list. I also have no space as of yet for climbing vines. Please no vegetable seeds that aren't organic unless I specifically ask for them. I find they may not do well in my garden since I don't spray any chemicals & hand pick off pests. Also no foliage plants. I love blooms!

I have a small urban garden where I grow flowers and veggies. The veggies are all organically grown and are mostly grown in raised beds & grow bags. The flowers are in raised beds with some perennials in the ground. I have a big problem with Japanese knotweed which is why I have raised beds. I'm hoping to finally get rid of the last of it next year!
