Wanted Seeds for postage after hurricane recovery

2 years ago

Hi everyone,
I have seeds for edible perennials and vegetables and flowers.
But after going through hurricane a lot of my seeds don't' want to sprout. I keep trying but mostly wasting time and most of the food I eat is grown in my indoor garden.
Does anyone have seeds for postage that are vegetable, edible Perennials, or edible flowers, edible aquatic or even cuttings. I'll pay postage but can't swap due to not sure what i have that is viable. Although I could trade guppies or swordtails haha. Any help would be appreciated and i can give a wishlist if want.

    I think the seed exchange has been decimated by people moving over to Facebook. Plus, there is such an extensive list of "bad traders," some added for absolutely no reason except that someone didn't like the trade they got, that it's become almost a clique.

    Please PM me. I may be able to help, depending on where you live.
