This is a list of some of my extra seeds, and seeds I've collected from my garden.  Some are native to my area in north Florida.  Some came from previous seed swaps.  Most are in my butterfly garden.    I'm always looking for both host plants and nectar plants.  I don't have lots of any one type, and I don't ask for many seeds.  Just enough to start a few plants.

If you don't have seeds to swap, no problem.  I have many (of some) seeds.  Just let me know what you want, and maybe I can send them for a SASE (self addressed envelope).  I'll need an envelope with 44 cents in postage, or two regular stamps will work too.

I'd like easy to grow seeds for my butterfly garden.  I'm always on the lookout for great nectar plants that attract both butterflies and hummingbirds.  I'd like some new herbs that I don't have: Joe Pye Weed, Betony, Caraway, Curry, Lovage, Tansy, or other host plants.  
Please email me (click on the butterfly email sign, at the left).  Or we can chat if I'm online.  See the grey box below...
