swap list for your Goldenrod
My goal is to provide the honey bees with many different species of Goldenrod on a 7 acres fenced in ranch type farm.
For your different species of goldenrod bare roots (preferred) and/or seeds, I have available the following seeds to trade. These are all open pollinated grown, non GMO, many but not all have been growing in our garden for the last 20 to 30 years as a backyard hobbyist among others, seeds collected in every Fall. They are easy to grow and provide plenty of seeds every year. I will also consider other late in the season rare and exotic seeds or roots to trade as well good for the honey bees. Depending on the swap, I will box ship mine to you. Not in the small quantity of 10 or 50 seeds like on ebay or amazon asking too much. I will cover postage to ship these seeds to you. Since we are on beesource first come first serve to be fair by response date and time. Ask or PM me if you have any questions or would like to do a swap. Growing direction will be given if you are not familiar of how to grow them.
