I hope this is okay...

I need more gardening friends, people that share my passion and that I will enjoy to hear about my first winter sowing attempt  / indoor seed growing experiences and even offer advice!

I feel like a lot of my current friends don't really care lol.

I am new at seed growing and gardening, I started my first flower garden this past spring but only planted already grown plants so I am really excited that I have had over 30 seeds sprout inside over the past few days, they just keep popping up! (Dahlia and Zinnia) and I got Canna Lily tubers to grow from seeds!

I was very excited I started my first compost bin too!

(I also talk about about my kid and everyday life too, just a FYI.)

So if you'd like a new gardening pal, let me know! I also love to seed swap, I have worked hard at getting a very good flower and even vegetable collection and if you like coneflowers, I'm your girl!

Hello! You'll find this group gets going in the spring, but the people here seem lovely. I can't seed swap with you as I'm in the UK, but I'm sure you'll find someone who is interested.

Hi! I'm looking for friends to add to my personal LJ too!

Yeah! You can garden talk here and we'll talk to you back!

I've just added you to my LJ friends, please feel free to add me back. I haven't been posting as much in the last year but am working on using LJ more often.

I do read through my LJ every day.

I'm in Gainesville, FL. Mostly into roses and herbs. In theory, I think seed exchanging is a great idea but...

But? I've grown a huge collection by swapping seeds :)

Added you back!

But...I am a champion procrastinator and so, though I really really really really mean to do the fill in the blank well...

But my heart's in the right place. :

I'm afraid I'm similar to rhiannon_black. I excel at procrastination, but I will add you to my garden journal (which desperately needs updating). I do read journals regularly, it's just that I don't always have time to reply and I do like to think on my replies before posting. I do collect some seeds. I'm in the middle of a giant redo of my backyard and now that the weather has turned quite cold, nothing is getting completed. :| Also trying to get Christmas prep under control. :D

Sounds good :D

Hello method_acting! I would love to swap seeds with you. Right now I have some mexican sunflower and white nicotiana that I collected this fall. What color dahlias do you have?

I'd be happy to friend you, but I often journal about my depression and ptsd, and I understand if that would be too heavy, and you'd rather keep your feed light.

Best wishes.

It would actually not be too heavy for me as I also suffer from depression and anxiety, but I am pretty stable right now! Maybe I could offer some help? It's up to you though!

I have some Dahlia - Mixed, Unwins, white, and yellow.

Just added you! That Unwins looks beautiful!

Ok, I know you made this post MONTHS ago so I am hoping you are still willing to take on new LJ friends? I just found/joined this gardening community. I have dabbled in gardening for a number of years now... I just really, really like flowers, you know? We also have a small veggie garden every summer. I am no expert by any means but am interested to read journals with gardening as part of them! (I also write about life, kids, day-to-day stuff)

Anyway, let me know if interested! :)

So much yes!! I haven't talked about my garden in a bit but I'm always looking for new friends!
May. 19th, 2017 02:59 pm (UTC)
Great! I've just added you
