Seed Swap is a community for sharing seeds between gardeners! Please be responsible and kind when swapping.

Welcome! This is a place to swap seeds with fellow Redditors. Simple rules:

Post a new thread stating what you have to swap (or give away!)

Post a comment in a thread if you're interested in what the OP has, with a list of your offerings. OP should reply in thread and then PM commenters to seal the deal.

If your thread fails to appear, please message the moderators, as the spam queue tends to be over eager on occasion.

Policy on "illegal" seeds: to avoid exposing our users to law enforcement, we will actively remove posts advertising currently illegal seeds, such as cannabis. If it is legal in your country or state to trade these seeds, please post in local forums rather than here.

Crataegus mexicana ("Mexican hawthorn" "Tejocote") etc

If people are interested in swapping, after April 15 I should have available the following

-Crataegus Mexicana ("Mexican hawthorn" "Tejocote")

-Feronia limonia / Limonia acidissima ("Wood apple"): I previously expressed concern about the seeds which was probably unwanted (it was based on one webpage I read). The flip side is since no one was interested I've put these in a propagation box so they will probably be sprouted after April 15

-maybe some other stuff

I'm interested in herbs, unusual edibles (artichoke) including odd fruits

ISO Purple Tomato by Norfolk Healthy Produce

I literally just found out they exist (IMMEDIATELY enamored tbh), sadly the site says they're all sold out. Did anyone order extra? Or is there still a way to get them otherwise?

Sourcing purple tomato seeds

Hi, I’m looking for someone in the US who would be willing to purchase a variety of purple tomato seeds I would like to grow, which are only available in the US, and then post some onto me.

I would cover all the costs, purchase and shipping, and I’m happy for the person to keep some seeds for themselves to plant and enjoy.

Thanks

Southeast asia
South America (preferrably Paraguay)

So if any of you are from there, or have seeds from there, I would love to chat.

If you contact me with what you are looking for, we can see if I can help you with anything.

[Have] Southern Live Oak Acorns [Want] Various Southern Red Oak acorns

I have as many acorns (Quercus virginiana) as you can want. Will float test and soak before sending them out. Germinating is fairly simple as they don't require strat. I managed to germ about 75% of my last batch that I picked up.

Looking for at least 50 acorns, in any combo, from:

Southern Red Oak - Quercus falcata

Shumard Oak - Quercus shumardii

Nuttall oak - Quercus texana

Black Oak - Quercus velutina

Will also take Scarlett Oak - Quercus coccinea if none of the others are available

Painted mountain corn

Hi, im looking to add some painted mountain corn genetics to my own Corn strain. Problem is that Here in Europe there are a couple of places that say they sell the variety, but after delivery They turned out to be the regular Glassgem kind.

I also contracted North Frontier Farms, the official breeders but they cant legally Ship to the Netherlands.

So does anyone have some seeds for sale or would anyone be willing to buy some from North Frontier Farms? And ship them to the Netherlands? Of course i will pay for the whole thing

Herbs/tea herbs

Hey all! Avid gardener who just recently got the free-time to start pursuing the pleasure!

My seed list is rather short, but this year I am mainly interested in growing plants in zone 6a, and this year I'm looking into herbs, spices & teas, as I feel my soil is not going to produce much of anything else without a few seasons of love!

What I have for trade:
San marzano tomato - burpee organics
De Cicco broccoli - burpee organics
Dantes half long carrots - burpee organics

I can also trade cuttings of:
Pothos (rooted might be a few weeks, got a couple going now.)
Aloe - one of the many variations, this one seems to grow in-line rather than bushing out. Think peacock tail.

Feronia limonia / Limonia acidissima / "Wood apple"

I have these seeds available.

Looking to swap for other interesting edibles.

FYI: The seeds look normal to me. I read (on Wikipedia or somewhere) that this species sometimes has issues with fertility. The seeds look normal and are not floating in water, but that isn't a guarantee the embryos are fine (maybe they are)
