SO....you need to reply to the post. Here's some adaptable examples of good replies:

Hi Gardener_Jane!

I'd like to trade for your marigolds, cosmos, banana melons, and habanero peppers. I've got white zinnias, mixed morning glories, mixed portulaca, and heirloom yellow boy tomatoes. Please let me know if you would like to trade.




Dear GJ,

I like your list and I would like to trade for these seeds:



banana melons

habanero peppers

Please look at my trade list on my member page. I hope we can trade.....let me know.



Those post replies are very clear. Jim tells Jane exactly what he wants to trade for. Jane likes that, she's a busy person. She doesn't have to take the time to send extra emails and she can make her trades quickly and easily.
