***FREE TRADE*** HOSTA SEED IS AVAILABLE FOR STRAIGHT TRADING (seed for
seed with no money needed).
I am interested in other than hosta seeds therefore, if you have
something you might like to trade me for hosta-seeds, then please tell me
about it -- Daylily (hem-seed?) is my second favorite to hostas?

right now. Please note that: hosta seed stored frozen, will keep
germination viability in tact for 20 years.
