I've hopped!

Diamond, I'd say how you handle it depends mostly on whether you have the patience to type all those single packets on a post (and/or in your database)... if your fingers get tired, you can chuck them into your "1 for 1" swap seeds. :-)

besides lots of the tagetes lucida, have the following:

I was finally able to find out the name of this aster, Southern prairie aster have two packs to anyone who wants them.

2x epazote, chenopodium amrosioides, a tender perennial herb. although here in Tx, this one can get carried away in the garden, and should be planted separate from other herbs.

2x Maypop, passiflora incarnata

that's all for now.

Another one for an adventerous few.....

I now have a positive ID on this yellow flowered shrub. If anyone is interested in it I have about four packets worth in, dried and ready to go. From information I've gathered seedlings will not be quite as uniform in habit as the parent plant but as this one can be a bit hard to find it might be worth a shot.

It's a shrub. It goes about 3 feet tall and wide at maturity. This one is in partial shade and still blooms quite nicely. It requires no care and the nectar loving insects adore it. It does require good drainage - I have mine in a raised bed.

I've got your oink! Big Grin

Chelle, if there's anymore of the St. John's Wort left, I'd like to try some, piggy please. I didn't realize that it's a shrub and had you not pimped it, I would not have thought to try it.
