I'd love to sign up, but I'm in the UK and am unable to receive/send seeds Sad  Three times a friend tried to send me purple tomato seeds and three times the entire package got confiscated!

You can sign up and just swap crafted gardening related items and not seeds.  The seeds are an extra to be agreed on by the partners.


That's crazy that purple tomato seeds got confiscated. What are they going to do mutate and take over the country?

Hi! Crafty Butterfly is exactly right. I have personal experience with this, too. I thought handmade paper and dried grapevine would be OK for a swap to Australia - wrong!

If we have international partners, the rule will be "absolutely no plant material, soil, or seeds" because it WILL be confiscated. The rules are intended to prevent disease transmission, prevent introduction of invasive species, protect native species, and protect organic crops from GM seeds. That's a good thing! 

That being said, there are lots of other crafty gardening goodies which may be safely and happily exchanged. Gloves, aprons, row markers, yard art, tools, etc, etc. I had a wonderful swap partner in Scotland, and we exchanged gnomes, among other things. Smiley

Please post any and all questions!

I signed up, I'm in the US and I actually don't really care to receive  seeds anyway Smiley I get really paranoid about invasive species so I'm very selective about what I plant.  Unfortunately, the people that lived in my house before me were not so selective- 6 years and I'm still battling the invasive species!
