The Silent Seed

Recommended Posts

Time for another big giveaway! I have a lot of irons in the fire, and need to free up some space!
Most of these seeds are fresh (less than 3 months or thereabouts.) Some are already planted. The ones that say "pkt" I only have one, or two packets of. (Most of the packets are a little older. Winter-ish?)
No guarantees on germination, etc, since we all grow our stuff differently.
With the already planted seeds, keep in mind that they will be dirty, discolored, may have a light coating of mold, etc etc, since they are in dirt, in pots.

A few things to keep this offer simple, and fun: there will be a flat fee of $5 and $10 depending on how heavy your package will be, approximately. Every box/package comes with tracking, which costs almost a dollar in itself. No exceptions.

Select what you would like, from my list - simple as that! While supplies last. Now, may the fun begin!

When you contact me, tell me which ones you want, and how many. If you just want a grab bag surprise, that's fine too.

Trades are fine, and will eliminate the shipping charge.

You are very welcome!

I did not realize I would get so many International parties interested in this. There will be a flat $20 fee for international shipping, because again, I do not use envelopes, but packages. The typical average cost is $14 - $16.

If the cost is drastically different, a refund is always given if asked.

I know that some of you do not use Paypal. I am sorry, but I won't pay out of my own pocket for shipping, to give these away.

Hi gang,

Whoever has already paid for shipping, the boxes are being packed today, and tomorrow, and will be shipped, today and tomorrow. (Some of the seeds are at my fiancee's condo, so a few of those will get packed tonight, for tomorrow.)

No more orders/payments will be accepted until I finish this batch, and re-assess what is left, and determine if I still want to give more away.

Please watch for a potential new list.

Thanks everyone!
