Starting a new garden can be expensive, even if you start from seeds. Online seed exchanges are a perfect solution. For less than $5 for postage and bubble wrap, I’ve received more seeds than I can plant in a season.

The best online seed exchange I’ve found is the iVillage GardenWeb Seed Exchange. It has many gardeners from the United States and Canada. Often exchangers offer seed for nothing more than postage, and give extra surprises in the packages they send.

If money is tight, but you have dreams of a lush, bloom-filled garden, give a seed exchange a try.
