If you are a newbie and a gardener this swap is for you.

I am setting up this swap for members who are new to get into the hang of swapping with others on swap bot. Experienced swappers are welcomed however i am setting the rating high to eliminate flakes.

New Users Please read the following links:

    Type 2 Seed Swap - Flat mail.
    This type of mail is flat and processed by a machine. So it shouldn't cost you more than 0.55 cents to send out your envelope. Make sure your seeds are well packed that they will not crush. If you want you can use a padded envelope but that is at your own expense. I use thick napkins to wrap my seeds in then tape them flat. Just a tip.


  • Only sign up if you will send your swap on time. Check deadline date.

  • Label all seed packets with correct latin and common names if you have it. If not google is your friend.
  • Make sure all seeds are disease and pest free.
  • Seeds can be store bought OR hand collected.
  • No invasive or toxic varieties.
  • Seeds older than 2 years DO NOT SEND...

    INCLUDE with your Swap:

  • Your ID Name

  • Swap Name
  • Labelled 3 separate packets of seeds (senders choice).

Once your package arrives rate and thank your partner. If you loved what was sent include a heart in your rating. Don't forget to give the coordinator a star if you had fun in this swap.

If your partner does not send a package or is late (postmarked after deadline) you can give a 3 or 1 rating. Do not rate below a 5 if you do not like the seeds sent.
