RE: Free seed websites?? (Follow-Up #3)

I know I am way detouring from your question, please forgive me. But I like to exchange seeds because you can potentially get proven winners from peoples garden if you ask for them. But what if you don't have any seeds to trade? One way is to go to a "wholesaler" type seed seller, like
Anyone can buy from them. Pick 2+ types of seeds that people should want. Then purchase 1000+ seeds for extremely good prices. (Example: 5000 Genovese Basil seeds are $4.15; lemon basil 5000 seeds for $3.00, Petunia Celebrity 1000 for $4.20) Split the seeds up into 50 seeds per pac and trade them. The Genovese seeds will have a cost of about 4 cents.
I accidentally did this last year when I ended up with an extra amount seeds on a really good, new zinnia. I sure got some nice trades that way. In return the traders that I traded with hopefully got to try fresh seeds from a new variety of Zinnia. It's better to have more than one variety to trade because traders can be very generous, plus the postage cost issue.
