Santa Barbara Greenhouses
If you haven't heard of something called a seed exchange, you'll be pleasantly surprised. In concert with the evolving prominence of social networking on the Internet, the burgeoning amount of seed exchanging is notable. You can do a general search online to see who's got what, and if you know you're way around the garden and have something to offer, you may avoid having to buy. A greenhouse is the perfect companion to this phenomenon because, of course, the more greenhouse supply seeds you grow the more you'll have to exchange. And since having a greenhouse supplies you with seeds of all kinds throughout the year, you'll soon be an active participant in this most modern form of trade.
If you are part of a group of gardeners who exchange seeds, you can enjoy the Round Robin Exchange and come out with varieties you may love. If you buy a greenhouse and are all set to go, you'll need to wait until you have some of your own seeds to exchange, as this is not where you would request free seeds. However, once you do have seeds from your efforts in the greenhouse, supplies for your next growing adventures are sure to follow. One way to procure new and unexpected gardening forays from a seed exchange is something called the Round Robin. This exchange usually focuses on a particular seed type or some other category. The initiator of the event decides how many will participate and then ships the "Robin" off to the first participant. That person takes as many seed packets from the package (the Robin) as they can replace with their own great seeds, and then they ship it off to the next participant in the designated flight path. An online forum is set up so postings can be made to let everyone in the flight path know whether the Robin has landed or that it's in the air. At the end of the process, participants will have enjoyed the adventure and have some new varieties to test out in the greenhouse. What could be nicer?
