    Hi Gals and Guys,

    Just got back from fishing and on my way back we stopped in at Minter Gardens. Mr. Brian Minters was sweeping the floor at the front entrace!!!

    Anyway, I bought a sedum purple emperer. I think Katherine was looking for it. Can I bring a rosette for propagation? Or should we wait until the Spring?

    Karen.

    Helen: we're going to miss you but we'll just catch up in Spring.

    Erka: the grape boxes will be just fine. I have a source for the fish boxes now.

    GF: That's the problem with owning your own business - you gotta do all the dirty work yourself. I think sedums always root no matter when. I have a bunch that has been sitting on a soil-less tray all year that is still alive.

    Hi Beverly, To answer your Q?, I did go to Darby Creek Nursery,me and my friends went there after the swap. But they didn't have a good sale like they did last fall.We left there almost empty handed.But we had stopped at Shroders off of 71 on our way to the swap and before we got to the swap. They have some really good sales on their plants.That's where we bought most of our plants that day. On our way home we stopped at Seely's. I ended up buying 4 Hostas and Jacquie and her sister Bobbi bought 4 or 5. And we were loaded for bear.LOL I was in so much pain I couldn't hardly stand it. But It was fun.I couldn't unload my car and lucky for me I have some very able friends who don't mind helping or doing for me.Oh!! If I only Had My Legs Back!!! What's this Beverly about you having a Hosta Sale on the 30th? Did you sell them for a business or are they your own??Diane had emailed me with the info and date, But I didn't get the message till after the day of your sale. Sorry I missed it. Hope you did a good business!!! Hope you and Betty had fun at the swap.Fill us in on the Goodies you brought home!! Keep in touch!!

    Hi Adam: Glad that you will be coming. Your dahlias look beautiful this year, maybe because we had been having more sun than rain. If someone is interested, I can bring one too. As for me I would like blue berries, blackberries, gooseberries and hardy green onions. Like you, I tend to take too much home. Unfortunately, I do not have too many sunny spots. Flower plants for dry, shady or part shady places will be good too. The snow=on-the mountain will spread like mad in a wet spot but quite slow in dry places, expecially sunny ones. Tammy, I have not gotten directions yet. Hope you can successfully email me. I Look forward to seeing everyone! May

    Fall Swap Sept. 27th, Kersey

    Q

    Misty, I don't use a GPS! I still do it the OLD way (after all, I'M Olde!), with real live maps--and I look things up on google maps and then drag the little "guy" onto the roads so I can see what the intersections look like where I need to turn! Can't deal with machines talking to me, and if I had a GPS I suspect I'd either smash it or throw it out the window about the third or fourth time it started talking to me! After I look it all up on google maps I print out the directions with all the "landmarks!" [And I print it big enough that I can read it easily while I'm driving--without my glasses!] Sometimes I print a google map just in case something "goes wrong," but usually I just do good/detailed directions. The directions from Kersey to Bonnie are pretty simple and straight forward. I don't want to post it here online, but if you'd like I'll email you the "end" of my direction sheet--the last part when you get to Kersey! I go up Rt 85 and assume you'd go up I-25 and take Rt 34 east (I wind up on Rt 34 too where it crosses Rt 85), but from where you turn onto Rt 53 where it goes north out of Kersey it would be the same. I still have a hotmail address for you, if that's right and you'd like me to email, just post here. If your address has changed, PM me, or email if you still have one of my addresses. Skybird

    Thanks bcgift, I'll bring a couple of tip cuttings then for Katherine and whoever else wants it. Right now it's just two stems though it wasn't cheap. I also saw a Razzmatazz echinacea there too in a 4 inch square pot and had carried it around for a while until I noticed it was 29.99!

    I'm soooo sorry! I can't come now! I'll be in Seattle all day. I've been inundated with projects, new job, life, etc and haven't been a very good garden buddy, I'm afraid. But, I'll be there in spirit! I am saving some tomato seeds and also may be getting rid of my seed stock from my website for cheap so let me know if there's anything you'd be interested in.

    See you guys some other time!

    Vincent, I just realized that my promise to you of a piece of Dutchman's pipe vine was a little rash. I went to dig and divide it today only to see that its multiple stems all arise from a single trunk, so it is not divisible as I had thought. I will have to try harder to root a cutting for you or layer it for next year.

    Well push is coming to shove as we near our date and I still have more stuff I'd like to move out. I am not needing much in return at the moment and will trade for future considerations.

    I have three baby mophead hydrangeas, garden variety blue, cuttings from a very rewarding plant.

    And two baby Salix yezo-alpina, a ground cover shrublet for sun whose leaves emerge nice and fuzzy in spring.

    One Kirengeshoma palmata (yellow wax bells), a tall perennial for shade or part sun with - what else? - waxy yellow bell-shaped flowers, blooming now.

    Here are photos of some others. Google can find better images of many of these plants, but I have some photos of the very plants available.
    Fetchingly arranged in the wheelbarrow, left to right, top to bottom:

    Xanthoceras sorbifolium (2) (a thicket-forming shrub with tiny brownish-red flowers)
    Oakleaf hydrangeas (2)
    Viburnum rhytidophyllum (leatherleaf)
    Very small but later very big Blue hosta - elegans?
    Dichroa febrifugia - blue flowers, blue berries
    Saxifrage umbrosa primuloides - fantastic ground cover for dry shade and anywhere else
    Eriophyllum (Oregon Sunshine) - ground cover for sun
    Cystopteris bulbifera - a delicate creeping deciduous fern

    {{gwi:696015}}

    If anyone's Dichroa from spring didn't survive, don't be embarrassed; ask for another. I have lots.

    WCG - Yes to the asters, I'll set aside the one purple & one pot of mixed white/purple (not sure of which).

    Does anyone have any physalis (chinese lanterns) which they can spare? I'd love to start this (yes I've been warned, it can really spread).

    Anna, yes you can have those, whether you make it to the swap or not. Perhaps someone who lives convenient to you can take your plants for you...?

    Lily, if you are spreading your bunchberry a little thin with so many divisions, I can wait for another time for mine.

    Hi all:

    Trying to get it all together for the swap. A lot of the seedlings I started early this year bit the dust - slugs slugs slugs - the dirty devils, mice, aphids, you name the plague - I had it. I learned a lot, though, during my first winter sowing and growing, and won't be making the same mistakes again. Bought a lot of plants this summer but most are too small to divide. Took cuttings a couple of weeks ago but most didn't take. Therefore, what I have left to offer are a few plants and quite a few seeds I harvested this summer. Anybody interested in anything I have listed below?

    LILY - Thanks for saving the bunchberry division and wild ginger division for me. If those are too many divisions I can wait till next time. Do you still have the Geranium Victor Reiter plant and Allium giganteum seed heads? I have Chinese Lantern seeds from last year if you want them.

    KAREN - Yes, your Yucca has survived nicely. I got it for my father. He loves those. He wants a red one too but I don't know anyone who has one. Do you still have tricyrtis hirta? I can't find the one you gave me at the spring swap. Maybe the slugs got that too.

    ANNA - if by chance you are coming to the swap can you spare a Begonia Grandis seedling or 2, the Gunnera manicata, and a Phlox subulata rooted cutting?

    VMARCOS - Do you still have Godetia seed pods? What colour are the flowers? Do you still have the Camellia 'kramer's supreme? I've been looking for that one. Have you got any cuttings from your Arctic Kiwi vine?

    Plants I have available

    Aquilegia (Columbine) 'magpie' - division - (1)
    Buddleja (butterfly bush)-a medium purple with blue tints cuttings taken in spring that have already flowered-2' high (1)
    Carex Pendula - small now, will get huge eventually

    Dicentra Formosa - 1 plant
    Ferns: sword ferns (Polystichum munitum) - 1 small

    deer ferns (Blechnum Spicant) - 2 small
    Hesperis (sweet rocket)
    Meconopsis Cambrica (Welch poppy) - orange or yellow
    Pelargonium 'Fireworks' - pink bi-colour - 1 (has to be taken inside for winter)
    Persicaria bistorta - (1)
    Strobilanthes dyerianus (Persian Shield) - 3 (have to be taken inside for winter)
    Vinca minor

    cuttings: these look like they will make it - cut these Aug. 28

    Now that I've made arrangements for enough plants to leave the yard that I will be able to breathe, I have some brain space left over to think about stuff that others have posted as being available.

    Anna - if you are coming - is there still a leftover Begonia grandis?

    Vincent - if you are coming - which Viburnums do you have to try for cuttings?

    Helen, could you ask Li if she could spare a piece of Holcus mollis?

    Karen, will you have your monster pick-up truck there? Not because I want to trade for it :-) but because if so I can try to bring the big Viburnum. I can't get to the Physocarpus yet.

    Finally, Erka, if you will have a few extra pieces of that Dahlia Pat Feary, I would like to try one - could I interest you in a Hosta Sagae or Grand Tiara in trade?

    Hi KarinL,

    No I won't have the monster truck. I'm too scared to drive it. I've only got my PT Cruiser that day. I will have to have hubby drive the monster truck some other day. Does BCgift not want it though? I thought she was asking about it earlier? It is very fragrant when in bloom around late winter. It's definitely a wafter and I know she's all about fragrance.

    I have a pile of godetia stems with pods on them in my wheel barrel right now. They have silky multicoloured petals with a single spot usually, pink and white for example. I can bring the cuttings Jazzy. I will have to hustle tomorrow.

    Thank you to Lily for hosting such a great swap, and thank you to everyone for the wonderful trades. The landscaper is finishing up my new flower beds as I type this, so soon all my new treasures will have a lovely new home.
    It was great seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones.

    LILY - Thank you so much for your hospitality and all the great plants you gave me at the swap. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon - chatting about plants with interesting people. I really enjoyed myself. An extra thanks for the bonus BBQ. Tell your hubby he makes tasty hot dogs!

    And thanks again to everyone for sharing all your plants and seeds with me. I really appreciate it. I hope to share a lot of my winter-sown seedlings with you all at the spring swap.

    Thanks again for hosting the swap, Lily. And thanks to your husband for the great dogs! It was fun, especially looking at your great garden! I wish I had that much soil to put my plants into. Sigh.

    Heather_81, sorry I missed you there. I had to work in the morning, so I couldn't come until 4:30ish. I still have those Black Barlow columbines, if you still want it. I can drop it off sometime later maybe.

    Thank you to all who attended the fall swap, and for your great generosity to share your plants, your gardening advice, and your afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with each of you - old friends & new alike.

    Aren't we having wonderful weather, for planting all our new treasures? We are so blessed.

    I look forward to seeing you all in the Spring, wherever we shall meet. Until then, happy gardening!

    Lily
