Garden Seed, Buy, Sell, Saving, Trading Or To Give Away

saving garden seed I’m sure that there are gardeners that actually plant all the seeds in a seed packet. However, I do not need nor do I plant 30, 50 or a 100 tomato, cucumber or squash seeds.

I am not a big seed saver. Small packets containing about 10 seeds can be purchased locally often for as little as 10 cents a packet. Even then I sometimes have excess seed.

Consider being a good neighbor and ‘nice’ gardener. Give your excess to your friends and neighbors. Everyone wins. You are helping out fellow gardeners and in some cases you will receive seed for plants that you want but will not pay the price for a full packet of seed.

  1. Sharing is always a great idea, just looking at the aging seeds in my box is a good reminder that I should pass them on.
    Have you heard of the seed exchanges and seed banks which are running into trouble with the law? Something about state requirements for germination tests etc are pushing them into the violation zone. Look up ‘dept of agriculture cracks down on seed libraries’ if you’re interested.

    • Thanks for taking time to visit my tiny blog and for your informative comment(s).

      Pennsylvania is the only state I have heard of that has interfered with seed savers that were not ‘selling seed’, mailing or transporting seed across state lines.
      However, Federal and state AG departments have laws on the books that are designed to protect people and ‘mainly’ farm land from mislabeled,, seed. Seed that fails to germinate, invasive plants and plant seed from poisonous plants. As well as the spread of plant disease and insects.

  2. Bacon! Nothing says you can’t eat greens and bacon together. I learned a decent seed storing method from one of the early “Square Foot gardening” editions. You only need a couple things, and you can keep seeds for years, so you have time to use them up. Lucky you, 10¢ a pack!?! Not here near Beantown, even the church spring plant sale hasn’t sold them that cheap in 20 years.
