    How about mulberry seeds to Florida? We have so many rules about what you can ship in this state.

    Prickly pear is on my babies feeding list (Western Ornate Box Turtle), but I can't find them anywhere in town. I would be interested in purchasing a plant, if legal and possible for their outdoor habitat next year.

    Where do you live? I can't imagine it would be illegal in the States, but then again, I could be wrong.

    I need to find someone or somewhere that sells dandelion plants. I have bought a ridiculous amount is sex 4 and can't get them to grow. :(

    You can buy dandelion seeds, but I have never seen plants sold. However, if you have a polish produce market in your area or a whole foods, they carry them, at least in my area.

    @littleginsu I'm about to grow some for the first time under my grow lights. I just got the seeds and have no idea if my seeds are any good. If they work, I will send you some young dandelion plants:) Wish me luck!

    I am growing some I pulled from the yard, they looked bad at first but bounced back real nice now. But until they get big enough to actually start using I have been buying organic ones from Krogers. It's a real good size bunch for like a dollar and half or so. If you have a Krogers you could check there. The wild ones are getting scarce here so I started buying the ones from Krogers and give half store bought ones and half wild ones just in case there was a slight difference or something.

    I wish I would have offered my opuntia spineless cactus on here before I threw a whole bunch away. Let me know if anyone wants some next time it overgrows. Pm me.

    I think it might still be in the green waste bucket. I'll check and salvage it if I can. Easy stuff to grow in California. I literally just throw it on the ground and it grows. Sometimes it just breaks off and falls on the floor then I go to remove it and it already has roots. The fruit is delicious too.

    Today, I received a nice envelope full of hundreds of healthy looking Rose of Sharon seeds from @phebe121. I'll start these seeds soon and also will be planting some weed and grass seeds for my tortoise to enjoy this winter.

    I've started a garden chat thread http://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/garden-chat-photos-for-torts-and-people.104546/ and invite all my fellow garden hobbits to post there.:)

    This trading goodies thread has been so much fun! I still think @littleginsu is brilliant for coming up with this idea!
    Thanks again for the seeds, Shannon!!!
    Hugs,
    Chrissy

    Just a bit of advice plant those seeds and leave them alone for about a year before you transplant them. I transplanted mine too soon and half didn't make it, I also left a couple where they sprouted and are twice as big as the ones I transplanted.
