Burt’s Bees is giving away free wildflower seeds to help combat Colony Collapse Disorder. I’m not sure how efficacious that is but I do have a patch in my yard that needs prettifying, and Iā€™m very much in the seed-swapping mood. Aside from the Winter Sown offer, I’ve been haunting the GardenWeb Seed Exchange forum and the ITGO Seed Exchange and eagerly looking forward to Tuesday’s seed-swapping evening with a fellow gardening friend. I’ve gotten my list for next year down to about $50 (from some $80 to start with–ignoring the postage I’ve been spending, which admittedly detracts from the savings, but not a lot). This seed-swapping idea? It is a beautiful thing.
