They're your plants, you can do what you want. It's the pay it forward philosophy here.

They are your plants.
You are free to sell them if you want.
You could also Pay It Forward by sponsoring a giveaway with one plant and selling the rest.
Have the winner pay postage and it costs you nothing while continuing the Pay It Forward philosophy that is the core of the seed bank.

Just my 2¢ worth

The plants you grow from seeds obtained from the seed bank are your plants to do with whatever you wish. The seed bank is a wonderful labor of love that Mike runs as a volunteer for this community. If your plants flower and you have extra seeds paying it forward is a nice gesture but not absolutely required. I hope Mike agrees with my viewpoint. There's no law. LoL. Now if you get free seeds from the seed bank and are selling them for profit for yourself then shame on that person. There isn't seed bank police it's just a moral type issue. Hope that answers your question

Thanks
Otherwise, you have 3 months active membership and 25 non giveaway posts.

I'm not sure, but I'm guessing anywhere between 4-6 days, depending on how fast your mail service is.

The Seed Bank Manager (that's me, folks) usually takes care of filling orders on Sunday.

However if I have real life stuff happening, orders might wait an extra week.

The seed bank is a community gig, it is run by one retired, decrepit old fart.

It is not a business.

Good growing,
Mike
