Seed Exchange...

Last week I featured some hot and ornamental peppers that I have seed to share. You can still go back through my older posts and let me know if you are interested in growing them.



Today some flowers seeds that I am offering. First come first serve until they are gone.



Cleome--I have pink and purple seeds mixed. All Zones - 4-6 feet--Full Sun/Part Shade

Abelmoschus manihot, formerly Hibiscus manihot also called aibika--mallow family..
Milkweed----where all of those Monarchs were so happy to lay eggs!

Black-eyed Susan Vine--Thunbergia Alata---don't be limited to growing this vine on a trellis, enlarge this photo to see how I grew it in a hanging container as well.

Purple Coneflowers--don't know it's name. My Mom grew these when I was a kid...these are from her gardens.
Hibiscus--don't know it's name either....This one has come back in a container or the lower deck for 4 years now. I have three others scattered throughout my gardens and they have returned two years in a row.
Dirt Princess is doing the seed exchange link on Sundays...I haven't been able to get over there to post on Sundays...doing the best I can though. Check her out http://northmobilegardensociety.blogspot.com/ I'll have more to offer next week as well.

Catherine at http://gardenerinprogress.blogspot.com/ I have not forgot about the crocosmia, it will be in your package. Jen at http://muddybootdreams.blogspot.com/ I haven't forgotten about your package either. Having some tendonitis issues in my right elbow again so, it's slowed me down a little. Send info to rusdar at hotmail dot com and please put seeds in the subject line.

That sounds like some good offering. Hope you have a fabulous day. Too bad about the tendonitis. Have you received any rain from the front? It came right up Mobile Bay but all it was was some big gusts of wind and lots of rain. All is OK today.

You have lots to share-just lovely flowers too. I hope your elbow gets better soon!

I like the Black-eyed Susan Vine in a container.I never thought of that.

Ooh, all so pretty, but I will have to try the milkweed. I need your address so I can send you your poppy seeds. Thanks for the crocosmia, I knew you hadn't forgotten :)

I hope your elbow is soon better. I don't think we can use any of your seed, but I appreciate your offering them. I am continually impressed with the beauty of your garden.

Hi Darla, Hope your elbow gets better soon. Enjoy seeing all of your 'pretties'.... You certainly do have a green thumb.

Hope the storm doesn't do any damage to you all.
Hugs,
Betsy

I would love some purple coneflower seeds! You know I didn't have much luck with them last year, so maybe your seeds will bring me goodluck!

Darla, your garden is still so great looking! I'm very bad at collecting seeds...too busy or too lazy! ;)
Love your poinsettias in the last post.
