I spent some time last week going through and packaging up all the seeds I have saved so far this year, and I realized – like probably many of you – that I have way more than I can possibly sow next year (or in the next five years, in some cases!). One of the most important things you can do as a gardener is to save seeds (and share them if you’re able to do so). It is not only rewarding, but essential to the sustainability and preservation of future crops – not to mention maintaining diversity. And it doesn’t matter if the plants are “common” – everything counts…or will, someday.
So…I have a bunch of surplus seeds I’d like to share with you, if you’re interested. These selections completely fall into the category of “common” plants. But it’s nice to get free seeds! Right?
This is what I have to offer:
(Perennial, hardy to zone 3)
(Perennial, hardy to zone 3) – you can read my blog entry about this plant here)
All of my plants are grown chemical-free. And while I did my best to ensure proper collection and storage, there is always a risk that some of the seeds may not germinate. I’ve tried to put a good amount in each package to hopefully combat that, and you’ll have to keep them stored properly until you decide to use them.
Unfortunately, I can’t send them to locations outside of Canada – I wish I could! But if you live in this country, click on my Contact Form and write your name and mailing address, as well as the types of seeds you’re interested in. I have a very small gardening space so I only have limited quantities, but I’ll try to get you what you want. I will mail them out as soon as I can – you should get them within about two weeks.
No room in my garden for anything more, but what a lovely offer.
It was a good year for seed production! 🙂
How very generous of you. I love collecting seeds and have a shelf full, some will germinate years later.
It’s such a wonderful feeling to know that there are seeds stored away for future use! 🙂
I would like some of the Chervil you can send it to ——- I could send a self addressed stamped envelope if you would like. Thanks for the offer it is very sweet.
Good morning! Are you located in Labrador or Los Angeles? I will gladly send the seeds if it’s the former (in my first reply, I automatically assumed it was the latter but perhaps not)! Please let me know and I’ll get back to you asap! 🙂
What a lovely idea to share your surplus seeds with fellow bloggers.
I hope they might be useful to others. 🙂
Sheryl, I love that you’re sharing seeds throughout Canada.
I’m very happy to offer them.
Such a great idea to share your seeds with others!
It’s my pleasure!
What a nice idea this is!
I am delighted to share!
Aaaargh–I wish I lived in Canada–and if the US election doesn’t go the way I hope, maybe I will live in Canada! 😉 This is a nice offer!
It’s too bad I can’t send you any seeds – I would so love to! 🙂
What a lovely idee to send seeds of your garden..Hope you can send them to people in Canada..You are fantastic.
Thank you, that’s so kind of you to say!
Sharing seeds and cuttings from the garden is a kindness that makes gardeners a special community of people, thank you.
I completely agree!
Flowers always brighten my day. Thank you for sharing these pictures.
Ah! That’s so awesome of you to do! These produce beautiful plants. Wish I lived in Canada to get some! 💛🙌🏼
