TalkingMystery Seed Exchange


I know this has been done before, but…
Here is my idea: we send a completely random assortment of seeds to each other. The mystery letters can include anything from flower, to vegetable, to trees seeds to you name it!

When we get the seeds, we plant them and only when they start to grow do we discover what they are (unless you can guess from the appearance of the seeds).

We must use our intuition or knowledge to guess how best to plant the seeds and nurture the plants, but cannot ask the sender what they are. This one is for the truly adventurous! If anyone is interested, let me know and we will set up an exchange. Try to reply here in the forum so that all who are interested in this activity can participate with each other.

We can even update our success on this page. I think this would be loads of fun.

Cool


Sounds fun an is different. But what happens if our climate isn't a match for the seed we receive? I have winter here an it is very hard to germinate warm climate seed in winter months.

However I know the southern states cant seem to germinate the the perennial seeds there>>

Would be some good guessing tho.. I am out, but good luck.

In answer to your question, when you set up the trade, post your zone and ask for seeds that are hardy to your zone

Mystery seeds


I'm for a mystery seed exchange. One could always offer a hint as to location of seeds harvested. I'm in the south but have sent seeds to friends up north and across the pond. It's fun to see what happens.

I see that the thread was started last August. Was there enough interest to get it going?
I'm organizing a mystery seed swap and grow out for members of a plant swap page on facebook. We have more than 50 people signed up. This is such a great idea.
