    This swap is not endorsed by BYC (owner, website, staff, etc.). The BYC Staff is not responsible and will not mediate if something goes "wrong" or a deal goes "bad". If you choose to participate in a swap, it is best to know who you are swapping with and not to swap more than you can afford to lose.
    The BYC Staff is sensitive because some past swaps have not worked out. We want our members to feel comfortable having fun with these and other social interactions, but please keep in mind that there were issues with some organizers and swappers not following through on their commitments in the past.

    I searched the first two pages of this section and didn't see a thread. Anyone wanna think about swapping seeds and giving seeds for self addressed stamped envelopes? If there is already a thread started please share it with me and disregard this post! lol

    You can include cuttings/plants if you want. Or maybe there should be a separate thread for the plants/cuttings?

    Post your Have list followed by your Want list and have fun! I'll update my post later when we get back from our friend's house! [​IMG]

    I thought "bright lights" were a chard?

    I'm at work and don't have access to my seeds, but I'll look when I get home.
