WANTED 2.0: Special Trades for Sep 9 Raleigh Swap

17 years ago

(Continued from WANTED: Special Trades for Sep 9 Raleigh Swap)

Krystol, my white beautyberry is C. americana if you want to try both species. I think I have enough seedlings out there to bring you one, but I'll dig them all this weekend to be sure. I also have some liriope, not a lot but 'some', if you want that, and could cut some vinca stems to bring unrooted to the swap. I've been cutting and composting it the past couple of weeks but can hold off on further haircuts until Sept. I'd love a cutting of Camellia 'Kanjiro', even if it's not rooted by the swap.

Liz, I'll post my salvia cuttings this weekend, but just off the top of my head, I've started cuttings from 'Pat Vlasto' and also of a hot pink seedling that has been relatively compact in my garden. One of those might fit the bill.

    Jean, I have a Leopard plant for you. I'd like the blue salvia. I do also have you for the 'Blue Wave' Hydrangea.
    MY LIST (please correct me if I screwed up)
    Alicia: Phlox, iris,H.'Nikko Blue', L.'Petit Point' for Celadine poppies and virginia bluebells.
    Tammy:'Mars' viola, Tasmanian Violet, H.'Blue Wave', acanthus,rooting lamium for asters, agastache, and buddleia cuttings
    Brenda: H.'Taube', H.'Blue Wave', Phlox for S.'Lovechild', H.maculata, agastache
    Jean: L.'Petit Point', acanthus, Leopard plant, H.'Blue Wave' for fern, hosta, blue salvia
    Deb.:C.'Summer Snow', H.'Taube', Pinecone ginger for C.'Emperor, perennial ageratum
    Karen:C.'Summer Snow', Leopard plant for S.'Hot Lips', white beautyberry
    Krystol:L. Petit Point for thyme

    I hope I got everyone. I just moved the rooted hydrangeas to their own pots so I hope they don't get upset with me, being so newly rooted. But they do all have roots at least. -Ais.

    for what it's worth, i'll be bringing some seeds. i don't recall where we left it as far as seed exchange went. seems like each swap there's a box of seeds to trade.

    ais, our swap seems lopsided. is there anything else you'd like?

    ooh- jean- thank you for the mini ee's. i put one spot of them in already, but another will help for sure.

    alicia, if there's anything you'd like in exchange, i wouldn't mind the fever tree. i ordered one many moons ago, but it didn't like where i put it. if it's spoken for, no big deal. did you start it from seed, or did it just come up? i know thery're native, but they're supposed to be rare, right? very neat.

    i will prep a flag for everyone who's posted on the these threads that they're coming for a spot at the shelter (on the lawn)for their trades and to put their grabs. anyone else who shows up can do their own- there are plenty of flags. maybe this way we'll get more visiting (and oogling) time and less traipsing all over looking for the recipients of our green babies.

    LOL Karen! Too funny! Is that like the regifting rule that you need to rewrap it? :) I looked around and tried to guess what you might like to even us up a little. I have a senecio that's a succulent called hot dog plant, not hardy, and a little houseplant that has adorable bulbs with freckled leaves, used to be scilla violacea, now it's a manfredia, i think. I also have some walking iris pups i could pot up, a pot of variegated french lavendar, which is ratty but will fill out nicely this summer, but isn't hardy, and some of that ornamental red leafed yellow flowered oxalis. Also, i could bring one of my pots of the puberula that i got at bb's, which i found the tag for that said z8, and is just labelled rosebud sage, if you'd like. BTW, I lost that cool sage that looked like a variegated koyame but plan to get more when i get down to bb's. Dana no worries- it's a really small start. The dirt's gotten hard & dry again, just like that. If it's happy it'll take off and go, though. I've had mine for oh, about 14 years. Deb, Karen & Alicia. I feel awful having to report this, but i was digging up those small rosette delizy starts and not a one of them had rooted for real. Dad gummed things really fooled me- they were stuck in but good and had new growth, but no real roots. So i went ahead and got them out of the ground and into little pots. They were well healed, nice & bumpy, and looked to be beginning the rooting process. I can either bring them and you can see if they'll root, or I can keep them here with plans to bring them come fall. Your choice- just let me know what you want me to do and if you want something else. The mother bush is getting ready to bloom and not really big, so i hate to do cuttings now. They supposedly do much better if taken after the first flush anyhow, so i may attempt to root more after that in june.

    Spring 2019 Raleigh Swap, special side-trade list

    Q

    Comments (987)
    According to this interesting video about Arundo propagation, rooting takes place at nodes, so internode cuttings are actually good propagation material. This suggests that if a stem is severed at ground level, without any roots, it is likely to end up being cut above the root node and the next higher node may be above ground when such a stem is planted vertically. In such a case a spurt of growth from the stem's remaining reserves could occur but it would not be followed by root formation and the stem would die off. Those stems that survive would be likely cut deep enough to preserve enough of the root node to be able to form new roots. So to obtain more successful propagation of Arundo, two paths could be followed: 1, deeper digs and divisions containing larger chunks of tubers with roots and rooting nodes; 2, stem cuttings with exposed nodes laid flat on the rooting medium, like in the video. The stems that we received at the swap seem to fall in the crack of not having enough roots to be bona fide divisions on one side, and not having a buried internode to be able to root as cuttings on the other side.

    Karen W., yes, we still have Opuntia Dark Knight for you, but it is a new one. One important lesson was learned about them in 2020. While they root easily and start growing, the original pad that touches the ground is not yet ready to be exposed unprotected to the outdoors moisture (rain) - and it is likely to rot if it is. It needs to age (cork) its surface first to become as resistant as the mother plant. So while it is advantageous for the cutting to be exposed to full sun outdoors, it should not be allowed to get wet for a prolonged time until its base is woodified and brown.

    Tammy, I'm just so happy that I've gotten everything (mostly) ready that I wanted to BRING. I am fine with what I am getting. I'm bringing the hubby and kids this time too so there won't be all that much space in the truck!

    I hope my plants don't look too pathetic this fall. The leopards plants are healthy, but the leaves have big holes from a hailstorm. Acanthus don't like to be moved so they may look wimpy. And the 'Mars' got a little eaten by something. The drought stressed some of my plants too so my selection was more limited. The weeds, however, are prospering so I have put everything in new dirt. I hope I don't send any bad hitch-hikers to you guys... my yard is a little wild. -Ais.

    Tammy, how about swapping the Cassia alata and a fever tree for a Veilchenblau cutting and a cutting from your medium purple Buddleia?

    I have two fever trees now that I grew from seed from the Botanical Garden, one a 2-3' seedling from a couple years ago that I had to dig up (other trees around it had to be removed), and a small seedling from this year. Tammy if Brenda wants one too would you be willing to take the smaller one since I'm trading with Brenda for another tree? They are native, I think closer to the coast than here, and rare.

    you guys are the bestest!

    ais, it's just fine if things look ratty. my stuff sure does! i didn't water much during those droughty weeks and it shows. i'm with ya- i'm thrilled to have all my ducks in a row(mostly).

    shari- you are too sweet! i will happily accept your mini ee's. i'm gonna have to do a byline on my plot sign about y'all! :)

    alicia- the smaller fever tree & a cassia would be awesome. aren't you going to keep one for you? don't let me take your last one. i didn't jot down the cassia before, so i forgot you were bringing that. i'll be happy to bring you butterfly bush & veilchenblau cuttings.

    a note to all whom i'm bring rose cuttings for: i will try again this winter (had good luck last yr w/ hard cuttings in winter). so if your cuttings don't root, hopefully i 'll have stuff rooted for springtime.

    thanks all! tam

    karen_w - Patrinia would be perf for my gaudy sun border. Since I am nutty for Sedum some bits of the S. bithynicum would be lovely! I've got the pot of Cornus ready for you and a mix of bright Iris.

    Brenda_near_Eno - Iris for you and I'll bring Lettuce seeds for OC and some other WS-able seeds.

    madamekiki - Pink Iris for you, and some others mixed with because I didn't mark those well enough in bloom so it'll be pot-luck in Spring.

    Someone asked if I was bringing Vitex Chaste Tree -yes, several. LMK which of you 'specially wanted one.

    tamelask - On behalf of us all - THANK YOU for doing the work of flagging!

    Alicia, I'd love the fever tree if it isn't too dear. I have about 5 5gallon and 6 3gallon pots I can bring if you need them?

    Does anyone have rasberry or kiwi cuttings to share?

    All my stuff looks ratty due to heat and just the time of year. The poor snakeroot looks like I'm trading yellow and brown fronds. But I promise there are healthy roots in all the pots and if anything does croak, I would feel bad if anyone didn't just drop me a line so I can make it right. Pots from me are likely to have snail hitchhikers - since I've been gardening, the size of my snails seems to be the best indicator of my progress. Feel free to smash them as I do.

    I've been sick all week, but I finally managed to drag myself outside this morning to dig. Mostly I'm bringing daylilies because they're so easy - just dig and bag.
    Deb, how about some begonia 'Wildwood Purity' for the viburnum?
    Jean, I have the two salvias and the ajuga, but no Russian sage. I'd like some of your 'Sahara Pink' if that's ok. Not sure what else - what color is your creeping phlox?
    Brenda, don't worry about snails in mine and I wouldn't dare squish one. My turtle loves escargot. Your hydrangea looks kind of pitiful from the drought, but it should be fine - if not I'll bring you another next spring. I was going to see if I could dig a better looking one, but the one in the ground looks even worse.

    Tammy I have a fever tree seedling in the ground and another in a pot, so these two going to the swap aren't my last. They're really easy to grow from seed.

    Brenda, those pots would be great. You still want the serviceberry too, right?

    My special trades are on my exchange page.

    last modified: 9 years ago

    Ditto on the stuff looking ratty due to the heat and time of year, plus my daughter killed off all the hardy ageratum which I had potted up months ago, while I was out of town helping my sister move. I dug some fresh today, but it's really unhappy abt it so it's not going to look very good.

    Went to dig the lamium and it really hasn't started regrowing (waiting for cooler weather), but it should be fine. I also had to restart some frosty pink brug after returning home, and when I went to divide them into their own pots today they already had nice roots!

    Brenda, we dug a bunch of ginger, but I'm going to have to cut it back some to get it in the car.

    Dana, I can't remember which is which on the begonia, so I'll bring you some of both. This stuff will spread gang busters so be careful where you plant it and it does need good shade.

    Alicia, I'd love the climbing Old Blush if it isn't spoken for. What can I bring you for it?

  • 17 years ago

    Deborah, do you have any more of the white butterfly ginger? If not I'd be interested in the pink evening primrose.

    jnhidden, I just noticed your request for a swap. Sorry I missed your earlier post. Yes, I'd love a redbud, virburnum, and blue hill salvia and can bring you nepeta (catnip), Iris Joy Peters, and daylily Paper Butterfly. I was only ablie to split one Chrysanthemum White Bomb and that's already promised. Will that work?

    Here's the remainder of my swap list - please let me know if I missed anything:

    Brenda - You had it correct in your post

    Tamelask - coneflower and myosotis for indigofera and epimedium

    Krystol - salvia, viburnum, redbud for creeping thyme, nepeta, and japanese iris

    Alicia - Hot Lips for Chinese Indigo

    Karen - hellebores and salvia for aster snowflurry, epimedium, chrysanthemum white bomb

    I look forward to meeting all of you!

    alicia, i'm glad it's not your last one and that it's easy to start from seed. good to know.

    brenda, what kind of kiwi and rasperry were you looking for? i really don't know how to take kiwi cuttings, but i have a male & female hardy i can take cuttings of- they need trimmed up anyhow. i also have red rasps, wineberries (like a red rasp but fruits in shade), & black rasps that i could bring offsets of. i'll need to know pronto so i can dig them tomorrow.

    Liz- I don't have any salvia. I do have your viburnum and redbud potted up. Is there something else I can bring you? I potted up some gold flame spirea, akebia vine, and have cuttings of climbing Eden rose and Kanjiro camelia (sasanqua). I have plenty of creeping raspberry graound cover, a small poplar tree (1 ft tall). I also have more viburnum and redbud, if you want two of those.

    Karen W- our swap seems lopsided. Is there anything you want me to bring besides the Kanjiro? I have you bringing liriope, vinca a nd C. americana.

    Looking forward to the swap!

    last modified: 9 years ago

    I'm glad everybody else's plants are looking tired. I've got a few Amorphophallus for the general swap that are starting to go dormant already. I was wondering if I should even bring them, but it sounds like it'll be an understanding crowd.

    Krystol, I've got a wooded area crying out for redbud, so if you've got a small one you can spare I'd love that. Otherwise, I'm not worried about anything but whether I'm going to remember your vinca cuttings on Sat AM.

    Nancy, I potted up Patrinia and Sedum bithynicium for you this evening. I may add some other sedums and you can just let me know when you see them if you want them or not, but they're a weakness of mine so I have lots of different species.

    Tammy,
    I'm readin Gaia's garden, and I'm mad to try mixing edibles with ornamentals and wildlife-friendlies, so I'll take anything you want to share. I'm trying to think of something special in trade. I have a large sprouted root cutting of Viburnum macrocephalum 'Sterile', Chinese snowball bush? If that's not a good one, give me a hint, cuz I have a little of everything.

    Hi Liz, yes that sounds great!

    Karen, I think I can bring you a redbud if you like. I will look for one for you tomorrow.

    Dana, I can bring you a couple of Stachys monieri 'Saharan Pink'. Let me know if you Would like any of these: mini Elephant ear, trumpet vine, small dogwoods, american holly, tulip poplar...?
    I have the purple, Emerald blue, pink and white creeping phlox, but I don't know which is which right now!
    We just dug them all up to rebuild the garden beds. I can bring you some if you are interested but the color would
    be a surprise.

    Hi Shari, did you ask me about the perennial sunflower? I found another one and would love to trade it with you for
    Norma Jean daylily!

  • 17 years ago
    last modified: 9 years ago

    you know, i am fine the way it is. i'm so overwhelmed right now witheverything i don't need anything else that needs attention. if you have a cohosh potted you were gonna throw in the general trade, that'll work since it's going dormant and i don't need to think about it. i'd best not get anymore viburnums right now, b/c my holding area is already too big. i may take you up on that a swap or 2 down the rd. :) i love viburnums & want one of each, esp the fragrant ones. but i've been torturing a burkwoodii this yr and i think a snowflake for a couple yrs now, waiting on that back yard project. sigh...

    i don't mind sharing the berries- i love edible landscaping and like to spread the gospel. and they spread themselves about generously!! maybe i'll have to ck out that author. i know i have a wineberry already potted and a red rasp (i think-but it may be black). i can ck if i have a black, too. that'll get you going good. i'll bring kiwi trimmings, though i have no advice for rooting them. matter of fact, if you figure it out, let me know.

  • 17 years ago
    last modified: 9 years ago

    alicia, john's advice for the cassia was to keep it in a pot in the hottest spot i could find for it (after it adjusts of course)to let it get as big as possible before the fair. he said high heat is the key to their happiness. the area in my plot where it will go is fairly shady; hence the need to pop it in last minute. even if it stays small i can use it. thanks!

    ais, i beleive you asked for the dicliptera second. i was taking everything up front today and made the unwelcome discovery that one of the 2 cups had rotted. so i'll bring some fresh starts. so sorry.

    Tammy where are you going to put the flags,... near the parking area or up by the shelter? Also if you don't get any takers on the red cascade rose I'd love to try it.

    AIS, If I'm remembering correctly we're usually there by 10. I've run later a few times but we usually get there pretty early so we can have things hauled up and set out before the crush starts, lol. I try to get the special trades to people as they arrive. Last spring I missed a couple people and they left before I could find them, so I left some things with John and posted a note on here about it. I think the flags will help with that problem this year!

    ok- i'll mark off a couple red cascades, no problem. thanks, ais for ebing understanding about the dicliptera. your daughter will probably be successful- it's easy to root. it just got too wet with all the rain lately. i can bring a few coleus for her to root- they are so easy she can watch roots grow in a glass of water.

    we will shoot to be there at 10 or so, but that's about the earliest we can manage. i was planning to do the flags up near the shelter so that the spots can double as our stash areas, but i can do it either way. it'd be easy enough to move them up the hill as we get ready to rumble. see you all tomorrow! tam

    I ended up with 2 red cascades, so if someone really wanted that rose (mini red rose climber, I think) that didn't get it, let me know, and if it makes it through the winter ok, I can bring it for you in the spring.

    Tammy, I never found the Veilchenblau cup. I guess it disappeared somehow. Maybe you can root one this winter for me? Also, if the ostrich fern ever makes a comeback and grows back, I will save it for you for the spring. I had a couple of them but the heat or lack of water got to them.

    Hi Tammy,
    I have already forgotten since I didn't write it down, but what is the name of the rose for the unmarked cuttings?
    Thanks!!

    yes, alicia- you were the other one who'd left before i realized it. i hadn't wanted the cuttings to wilt, which is why i waited til after the general swapping, but as usual i was running my mouth too much and didn't notice folks were leaving (never happen with me, right!?). i'll have to go back and look at my list, but i will try and root what i owe you for spring alicia. if not, i can take cuttings. and i didn't even get to say hello- i'm so sorry! a few other folks were supposed to get one thing, but you and ais had the bulk, other than jean, who got hers.

    jean, and anyone else who got roses from me: if it was not marked, it was veilchenblau. all of the others would have had a name written on a leaf. it roots easily, isn't too thorny, and is not fragrant. it's a very vigorous climber that blooms in clusters that cover the trellis all at once- so it makes a breathtaking tapestry of grapey purple, blueish purple, reddish pinky purple, and an occasional white bloom. no rebloom, sorry to say. very carefree- the only thing is the JBs like it. i don't spray, feed or do anything else to mine except prune- hard- because it grows so big so fast.
