WANTED: Raleigh Fall Swap & Picnic 2013

trianglejohn
10 years ago

Come one. Come all! The Raleigh Fall Swap will be held Saturday, October 5th 2013 at White Deer Park (Pine Shelter) in Garner. The shelter is reserved from 1pm til 4pm. Swapping will begin around 2 depending on if everyone has their offerings in place or not.

Normally the swap is in late September but this year there is an heirloom garden conference at Old Salem in Winston-Salem that I plan on attending.

Everything will be the same as in past swaps. We have the shelter from 1:00pm til 4:00pm so show up early and help people haul plants to the shelter.

We have three activities going on at the same time - the general swap, special trades, and the picnic. You are free to join in on any of them. The general swap is done in a modified Round Robin style where I ding a bell and you get to grab a limited number of plants and then stash them in your special hiding spot away from the shelter. After a few rounds all heck breaks loose and we just grab all the left over plants. The special trade swaps are off to the side and are where you exchange plants one-on-one with someone you have arranged a trade with. There will be a Special Trades thread started here on the Carolina Garden Web Exchange subforum to handle all the details. The only rule is that you need to keep your special trades away from the main shelter or else someone may take them during the general swap. The picnic is after the swapping. A Swap Food List thread will also show up where people can announce what they will be bringing. There are a few grocery stores nearby so that items can be picked up on your way to the park if you don’t want to cook.

As in the past we have no rules, you are free to haul anything gardening related to the swap and give it away - this includes live plants, seeds and bulbs, cuttings, pottery, tools and equipment. One thing that sets our swap apart from others is that we do not require you to even bring plants to participate. We always have way more plants than people. If you feel guilty taking something for nothing you can always bring food for the potluck picnic.

I believe this is our 12th year of getting together to talk dirty and trade plants!!! Some of you were there from the very beginning and some of you are recent converts to this crazy hobby. On the surface this activity looks like its all about the plants but in the end it is really all about the people - we enjoy spending the afternoon talking to other gardeners as much as we do playing in the dirt.

Here’s the town of Garner’s web page about the park:
http://www.garnernc.gov/Departments/Parks and Recreation/Parks.aspx?ID=25

An easy way to get there is to take the Beltline to exit #299 and turn South (away from downtown Raleigh). The road you are on is Hammond or Person (it has two names). Stay on this same road as it crosses Hwy 70, by now it has changed names to Timber Drive. Take Timber Drive all the way to Aversboro Street and turn Right (this intersection has a Wallgreens, a CVS and a Lowe’s Foods). There is a small city sign showing how to get to White Deer or Lake Benson Park. White Deer Park is on the right side of the road. There is a church on the opposite side of the street. If you see a big wooden sign for Lake Benson you have gone one short block too far.

Once you enter the park take the first turn to the left and drive until you see the big parking lot. I think the parking lot is one way. Our shelter is after the turn and right up against the parking lot. Look for the small sign that says “Pine” up on the eave of the building. There is a map on the park website above.

The parks address is: White Deer Park 2400 Aversboro Street Garner NC 27529

    tamelask: I would like the deutzia and/or old fashion bridal wreath spirea. Oh, and would love to try the Paw Paw seedling for my boys.They love fruit. Do you have any Iris cristata available?

    Elsiefay: I don't have the snow on the mountain yet. I was going to get that from lamcgowa. I did send you an email the other day letting you know what I had available for the pink andel trumpet. I can resend you the email. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hollyclyff: yes to Roma & Thai Rainbow Canna and Dragon's blood sedum Lime zinger is barely there. Looks like the cats like hanging out near it. I hang to move it or put it in a pot to regroup for now...sorry.

    Magick: Thank you for B&B salvia. Jasmine looks interesting and would like a gardenia...I love the way they smell but I am not good at rooting the ones I have. LOL. I looked at the wallflowers and pulled a few cuttings to root for you.

    Casa Lester: My dianthus is low growing in a tight mound and looks like a miniature "florist" style carnation. My john creech is probably best for you since the lime zinger is not liking where I planted it...or maybe one of the cats terrorized it. UURRR! John Creech does get a little stringy in sandy areas.

    lamcgowa: Thanks. I have a deep purple verbena and a yellow moonbeam coreopsis for you. How about a yellow long stem rose rooting/cutting?

    Hi, I am going to be out of town, so I will miss the swap, which I have not missed in many years. However, I need your HELP, or I should say that the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association needs your help. Who is the worst polluter of our streams in NC? Durham County. Ellerbe Creek is a mess. Here is the important part: ELLERBE CREEK CONTRIBUTES POLLUTION TO FALLS LAKE, RALEIGH'S WATER RESERVOIR! Lots of folks are helping, including Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association. ECWA is planning more residential rain garden installations this spring. NATIVE PLANTS ARE NEEDED. If you have extra native plants, potted up, please consider contributing them. I can send you a list of plants most needed if you want. The plants can be picked up from your home, or maybe someone will collect them for me at the swap. This is a great cause, and it impacts most of us directly. Also join the ECWA list serve to stay informed of improvements! Here is a link that might be useful: ECWA

    no Brenda, i think we're good- you're bringing the rehmannia, right? I think that's all we traded for. You said to surprise you. I'm bringing a couple things and you can pick. John has rehmannia, too- but if yours is already adapted for dry shade i'd rather start with yours. His is in delicious soil and pouted & mostly died when i transplanted it to my clay. :) I had it for a long time and gave it to lots of folks, but now my original's died off from the droughts and i can't recall who all i gave it to. Isn't that funny? Oh well. Ralph, thanks for checking. Figured i'd check in with you first to see if you were bringing some anyhow. I've actually had decent luck with the purples in a few hours of sun- better than the peaches have done. I have a few i can maybe dig up and take rather than spending the money. I'll have to give them a critical eye if they're really fit to dig (they tend to look ok in my yard but not in the ultra groomed garden at the fair). During the drought they reduced down to conserve and are just starting back up really. I'm just really loathe to dig something that's established for just a month or so and then have to dig it right back up just to bring it home again. I may splurge and get one or 2 eye poppers and fill in with something else (i have lots of strawberry begonia). Thanks again.

    elsie, i don't have begonia vine. i think you're thinking bignonia, which is a native called cross vine. I only had one and it's spoken for this time but i can def get you some for another swap.

    judy, i can bring a piece of a strangely colored small bearded iris. lovely.

    iamgcowa, you have the manettia.

    lora bell i only have one of manettia and since iam asked first ... - i will see if i can dig another but this time of yr it's difficult. i normally dig them in spring when they first appear now they are a tangled, twisted mess. but i will look for you. The bignonia is yours. is there anything else i can get you?

    plant bug can i bring you anything for the wintergreen?

    country girl, happy to bring the begonia cuttings. and the mum is yours. the lycoris is blooming right now and does much better if dug in the spring before it goes dormant (or after). any chance you could wait? i'd love some grape hyacinth and i'll ck your trade page and see what else there might be and post again.

    lisianthus, i'll set those aside for you. iris cristata looks pitiful right now. could that maybe wait til spring? I'll ck your page and post again.

    country girl, i'm interested in cuttings (or plants) or several of your coloeus- saturn, kiwi, duckfoot and trailing plum are all favorites and i had no coleus this year at all. i'd alos be interested in a small piece of any of your smaller (not tall) varieties of sedums (a variety pack! :) . i do have the lineo one.

    I was looking at your trade page and was wondering if I could get cuttings from your New Dawn.

    Here is a list of what I am bringing to the swap, not for Special Trades, just the general swap. I'm only posting this so that anyone interested will have time to google stuff before Saturday. Everything I'm bringing needs winter protection except some extra Cauliflower seedlings. My plant collection has swung over towards tropical fruits. I realize many don't have a greenhouse but most of what I grow can handle being a houseplant during the winter and some will even come back in the Spring if you bury them in a deep layer of dry leaves.

    Avocado seedlings - I grew some for grafting work. these are my extras. They're big and burly. Most likely Haas.

    Tamarillo seedlings - also known as Tree Tomato. Make a beautiful large leaved small tree. Likes cool weather but not frosts. Can get to 10 feet tall in a pot.

    Tzimbalo seedlings - a relative of Pepino Melon. Make a nice potted plant for the patio but can't take frosts. Grow them like a tomato.

    Guava seedling (pink flesh) - guavas do well in pots and will fruit after a few years. They can handle the first light frosts but anything harder will kill them.

    Black Magic Elephant Ear - I have a clump that comes back every year in my yard. This was my back up plant in the greenhouse. They are not supposed to be reliably winter hardy.

    Variegated Shell Ginger - these will come back if buried deep and we have a mild winter. They look best if dug up and potted and brought inside til Spring. Prefer bright shade and rich soil and lots of water in the Summer.

    Cherimoya seedlings - the tropical relative of Pawpaw. Won't survive winter but like cool weather and shade.

    Philodendron Monstera - also known as Swiss Cheese plant. This one is a cutting from a plant Rootdigger brought to a swap years ago. Typical house plant.

    country girl, it appears i finally managed to kill new dawn. So, i can tell you the other roses i have and you can let me know if any of those tickles your fancy. I have red cascade, veilchenblau, fantin latour, aloha (new dawn is a parent of that rose), a shortish gallica type fragrant double red purple that spreads (pretty sure it is belle de crecy), work of art, pink pillar, and dortmund. The latter 3 are difficult to root - in fact, i pretty much listed them in order of ease of rooting (i can dig a section of belle).

    Elsie, how about some seeds instead? I'd love some california poppies, moonflower, cosmos, foxglove and/or delphinium seeds if that's ok.

    So, here's what i have for everyone (? mark means i haven't heard from you):

    elsie: bignonia for seeds

    lorabell: rhubarb and garlic for bignonia, manettia, campanula punctata

    ?casalester: powis castle for b&b salvia?

    judy: mini foxglove for cherry tart and other mini iris

    iamgcowa: pulmonaria for manettia

    plant bug: spotted wintergreen for ? (i don't have anything from your wish list unfortunately)

    lisianthus: spirea, deutzia, pawpaw for walking onion and water celery?

    country girl: country girl mum, begonia cuttings, possible lycoris, possible rose cuttings for sedums and coleus

    Tammy: I have the water celery and walking onions for you. Thank you. I am envious of Jeri's red cascade rose. It loves her dirt. I thought you already have walking onions? I saw some bamboo in my back woods so I am going to dig some up for you. I can wait on the iris cristata. No worries maybe next time.

    Hollyclyff: Something else for the Lime Zinger Sedum? I am not proud of it.

    Casalester: please confirm what you would like for the special trade so I can get it together for you. Thanks.

I did have walking onions for years but they all died out (i think the bed got too shady). Ralph gave me some this spring but i put them all out at the community garden. I could get some from there but i figured if you had some i may as well get some now. Oh, and i really don't need any more boo since i have like 6 kinds now (i need to ck my list apparently - it plopped some old list in there at some point). and believe me, digging it is super hard work. But thank you! If you already have, someone else is bound to want some. I'll get you some iris cristata for the spring swap.

    I am looking for a few additional plants and seed for the vegetable beds in the new Children's Garden at J C Raulston Arboretum. These new gardens are located near the center of the Annual Trial Gardens. The purpose of this garden is to help children in the J C Raulston Children's Program and their parents learn where their food comes from and to demonstrate to everyone how much of it can be grown throughout the cooler months. About 70% of the beds have been planted with cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, Bok Choi, Swiss Chard, radishes, lettuce, spinach, collards, sugar snap peas, kale, parsley, cilantro, arugula, turnips, garlic, carrots and onions. kohlrabi. We would like to have more onions, garlic, leeks and shallots and some additional lettuce plants, so if you have any extra perennial herbs or cold hardy vegetable plants or seeds that you think we might use please let me know by email asap and I will let you know if we can use them. Suggestions about any other winter hardy varieties that we might add, even if you do not have seeds or plants will also be considered.
    See you at the swap.

    CountryGirl, yes, I'll bring a coral bark Jap maple for you. I enjoyed some of your coleus in the past but was unable to get cuttings in time to over-winter. Just choose one or two for me :-)
    Jdbheartease: Is oak leaf hydrangea a bush? I think I'd like that. I love hellebores (and they seem to like the spot below my cbjm), so maybe a hellebore foetidus.
    If I can find a third sapling, Majick, it's yours, and I'd love a vitafire bearded iris.
    There will be more cbjm's in the future... Mother Nature willing!!

    Does anyone have any ornamental oregano or lemon thyme? You can email me directly if you do please.

    Lorabell: I have not forgotten about your special trades. :)

    Magick: The wallflower cutting/rootings are not looking good today but I will look again tomorrow and maybe I can bring extra cuttings for you and you can pick something else to go with it? Also, are you still trading the gardenias? I am interested in it please.

    ratgirl: unfortunately, all pots with Illicium 'fla sunshine' are already taken, more cuttings will be made for the Spring swap

    tamelask: does ebony spleenwort form a dense clump? It could be good for the front of a fern section with its lower height. Do you have any other ferns that can be good groundcovers?

    casalester, the lady fern makes a nice clump and is easy. spleenwort does make a clump but it's small- like maybe 8" when full grown, so i doubt you'll get much coverage. It is evergreen, though. your choice.

    lisianthuslover, my bad. i just assumed b/c you'd seen jeri's rose... i do recall digging alstromeria this spring. It was a bit frantic, though at the swap. be nice to put a face to a name. i do have some ornamental oregano, can get you some.

    Carla, yes, i remember now! Super cute. Sure, swing by afterwards and get a branch. but you can have a pot, too- i have several. :) by the time you move it might be to a whole 2'! LOL

    yes, dogridge, i have plenty of pawpaws. Your name is on one! :)
