Hi Allen,

I had to look it up, and it does mean native to an area or people.  So I'm
not too sure what he was offering.  Anyway, I emailed offline and gently
declined his generous offer.

So far, I haven't ever sent or received a seed swap outside the U.S., and
what I do have for trade with the exception of the malva and anthemis are
pretty benign annuals... well maybe I shouldn't say that... Nigella can
become a pretty pesky re-seeder, and if you have a cat, Borage will pop up
in many places.  So what seeds do I have that I can send you Allen?
