I realized that I do have some seeds that I saved that I am not sure if the plant is GMO or not, so here is another thread for those seeds.

For example, I have lots of basil seeds that I saved....is there such thing as GMO basil? Anyways, since I am not certain, I have free basil seeds if anyone needs them.

I have lots of dill, too, and some cilantro, also free.


Basil
Dill
Cilantro
dark purple, 6-8' Morning Glories
pink hibiscus
multicolored sorghum

I'd love basil and cilantro :) For some reason, the basil cuttings I brought inside flourished and then withered and died :( And cilantro is just yummy!

Should I PM you? Thanks :)

I plan a big garden this year to feed my family inexpensively and more healthy. While I would prefer heirloom seeds, I have had great luck with non-heirloom in the past, in fact, sometimes hybrids have grown best for me. So I see the value of regular seeds as well.

I would be happy to pay for a variety of seeds mailed to me if anyone has some of the things I am looking for.

We are looking to grow basil and cilantro both.

Also:
Corn
cherry tomatos
brocoli
carrots
peas
beans
salad greens of all kinds
zuchinni
watermelon
pumpkin
sunflower

I would be happy to send you some basil and cilantro seeds. Just pm your address and approx quantities (I have a bazillion, so don't be shy! Allow for my newbie-ness at seed saving...you might want to test germination.)

Time to go through your seeds! It is February, spring planting is just around the corner! :p Or seed starting in the house, at least. Please go back and bold what you have and what you want so we can find it easily. When you add something, go back and add it also to your first post, so things are easy to find. I just added some morning glories and hibiscus to my first post....can you even grow hibiscus from seed? I saved a bunch, just in case. One year I gathered a couple of cups of blue flag seeds (wild swamp iris) and tossed them in the drainage ditch in the front of my parent's house. Two came up. Within a couple of years, there was a glorious patch of blue flag in that formerly ugly ditch!

My morning glories reseed every year so I saved some to share. They are such a deep, dark purple and work well on a fence or trellis as they only go to ...well, the packet originally said 5' but they surpass the 6' stockade fence I have them on by 2-3 feet.
