Just wondering if there were any heirloom gardeners out there. I lost my collection of heirloom tomatoes and flowers and am trying to get a new collection started. i had nice tomatoes, poppies, hollyhocks, ephedra plant, various herbs, patchouli plant, roses and many more. Would anyone be interested in doing some sort of seed excange this spring? Or helping poor ole me start my collection up again.

planting with seeds your grandma had. seriously it's the pratice of growing a crop, harvesting the seeds, and replanting them next year. repeat over many generations of plants and you have heirloom gardening. It's nifty

The last one had a bunch of peppers, lettuces, beans, stuff like that.
I gotta get on the ball...

i tried to find some heirloom poppies but there are none to be had. I think i read a blurb that seed companies are being hassled for selling them. what a crock of Bs
