HAVE: October Plant Trade

lindagail41
18 years ago

Its time to begin thinking about the fall plant trade in Atlanta. I have offered my daughterÂs back yard again and we have proposed October 15, 22, or 29. Please let me know your preferences on dates. For those who didnÂt attend last fall, Kathlin lives in East Atlanta, near GGG. If you havenÂt responded yet because you donÂt like any of those dates, let me know that too. I suggested those because we old people appreciate the cooler Saturday afternoons. The first two weekends in Oct are usually pre-planned in my family (parental birthdays).

Also, let me know if you want to do the food thing again.

There are two good strains in exchanges that tell a lot about how we operate. One is titled "Wanted: to tell you a little about how our plant swap works", the other "Have: final date!! April 23, 2005." And we are always open to new ideas.

I will watch this strain with zesto, but if postings are made elsewhere I canÂt guarantee I will see them. IÂm looking forward to a GREAT fall trade.

    Wildflower,
    Yes, I will break off a piece of my plant for you and even try to get it rooted before October. Also, I've been meaning to point you to this website, where they offer for sale an unbelievable variety of these plants, which are apparently officially known as stapeliads, perhaps more specifically as huernia. I don't have a clue what the correct name for my plant is, but it looks exactly like yours except it's larger and thicker. It hasn't bloomed yet this year, but the one you gave me has bloomed several times and is blooming now. Thanks again!!

    Wildflower, I may have another stapella. Do you want it?
    It is a houseplant someone gave me. Honestly it might not be a stapella but from that family. It's not really my thing...

    Just wanted to post a followup after last Saturday's fall plant trade. First, I want to thank Lucy from the bottom of my heart for opening her home to us and setting aside her day, even though she wasn't feeling as well as she might have liked. It was great of her to take on the trade at the last minute and do it so well. For those who couldn't come, you missed a really nice trade. Although there were only four of us there, we had a great time and all managed to take home new plants that we wanted (and as usual, some that we don't really need, but couldn't say "no" to). We also enjoyed a delicious lunch together sitting on Lucy's enclosed upstairs porch surrounded by trees on a beautiful fall day. I continue to believe, and the Gardenweb plant trades always prove the point, that gardeners are some of the nicest people on earth. Whether four gardeners show up, or forty, our get-togethers are always a treat. Our spring and fall trades are a unique opportunity to reconnect with old Gardenweb friends - and meet new ones. Thanks again, Lucy!

    Angelboxer, if you look in the exchanges section of this forum there is a post with rules from the spring trade. They would be about the same. It is usually a rule "no kids" but babies I thinkmay be a different story, and you could email Lindagail privately and ask her if an 18 month old would be okay. The trade is around the Piedmont area (Intersate 20 and 85) I drive from Cumming and it takes me about 30-40 mts. Well worth the drive.

    Marcy, I want to apologize for not answering your post....I was just reading back through here and double-checking my lists & don't see where I ever answered you! I'll bring you some white and pink brug cuttings. I will have a lot of these to share at the time of the trade.

    WestEnder, I love the site! I had no idea there were so many, and now I'm not sure exactly what I have!! I know it's 'orbea variegata', but I see they have several different types of those listed..I'll attach a pic of mine. Notice the flies on the top bloom...

    GGG, I'll be more than happy to take that plant off your hands!!! I've become really interested in these the last couple of years. Let me know if there's anything on my list you'd like in return. If not, I'm sure I can come up with something else.

    P.S. the plant is yours windflower I think it might be something that sounds like "hernia", lol. It is like a non-spiney looking cactus thing.

    I would like one of your beauty berries, please. Check out my list to see if I have anything you would like. I do have lots of hostas (solids and variegated, lime green, too.) The only ones I have a name for are Alba Marginata.
    Thanks!

    Well, it was rough looking through this whole thread, exciting and full of anticipation! Whew! Thanks Lindagail and your daughter!!! I will bring food, too.

    KathyGA, I have your honeycomb buddleia--it is fully rooted and living in a pot. I think we talked about trading it for Chicago Royal daylily?

    Carmen:
    I'd love beautyberry rooted cutting--I can bring a blackberry lily? (I think I only have 2 so I can only bring one--I can also bring a small clump of oxalis--it hasn't been spreading for me, strangely enough).

    Lucyatlanta: I have Daphne odora. I will try to take some cuttings and see if they do okay. (I'm not a great propagator but will try under a plastic tent.)

    Farmerpickle: I have baptisia australis seeds--could we trade for cosmos (if you are able to make it?)

    Marcy, I can bring a couple of lily bulbs, stargazer and a white one (tall, large and smell delicious).

    Glynis--did you ever root the spirea Ogon? That's still on my wish list (more so than the musa). I'll have to wrack my brain and look at your list some more to think of a good trade.

    Otherwise I have:

    2 mutabilis rose rooted cuttings
    1 honeycomb buddleia rooted cutting (separate from Kathy's)
    1 passionvine plant
    1 variegated porcelain vine (ampelopsis brevipeduculata elegans)
    several-hyacinth beans (the vine is glorious right now!)
    nicotiana seeds
    1 or 2 giant elephant ear (garden-variety)

    Possibly: Rudbeckia Maxima (I think it's called; blue-green leaves, very tall, perfoliated leaves)
    Ilicium florida sucker

    And if anybody really wants some, I'll dig up some purple iris, white ginger lily (another great smeller), physostegia and Jacob Klein monarda, Rudbeckia goldsturm; otherwise may not bring them.
    Also: I can try rooting a Blaumeise hydrangea as I also have that.

    My wish list:
    Clethra
    Veronicastrum
    Mahonia
    Neat little plants.

    Hi guys,

    I have been out of touch for awhile as I lost my hard drive and mouse at the same time so it took longer than it should to diagnose the problem. I lost my list of promised trades so am trying to re-create that. I have sent individual notes to those I made note of on my scratch pad. If we have arranged a trade previously and you haven't gotten an e-mail, please send me an e-mail or post here.

    ggg, by all means bring a door prize. Everyone loves a prize!

    farmerpickle, I would love a small division of Salvia greggii 'flamimg red' and stevia. Do you actually use the stevia for sweetening? I have a couple of oxalis to trade and a baptisia plant if it will transplant. I just potted two and we will see how they do in the next few days. They have a very long tap root and don't like to be disturbed.

    Carmen, I have a potted V 'Snowball' to trade for a little mazus reptans purple and some society garlic. I sure am glad to see your name pop up here.

    I have checked my newly rooted hydrangea cuttings and am sure they are strong enough that they can be planted this year or held over til spring. I have at least two of the following and some are from last year so are bigger. But all have good strong root systems now:
    'Emilie Molliere' (white)
    'Blue Bird'
    'enziandom'
    'beni gaku'
    'merritts pride'
    'forever pink'
    'glowing embers'
    purple mophead
    purple lacecap
    Except for 'Emilie' these are all shades of pink and purple in my yard, but some are supposed to be more blue, like 'Blue Bird'. Also I have at least a dozen good healthy ones that I have no idea what variety of hydrangea they are. Maybe they could go on a freebie table!

    I'm sorry to hear that some of you aren't getting as much rain as I am. Oh, if only we could share.

    My internet service has been down at home since Thursday so I had to wait until lunchtime today to post.

    Pam, I have beautyberries for you (rooted plants). I'd love your lime green hosta. I'd also like your Agastache foeniculum and pink penstemon if you have any left. Are there other plants I could bring you (or more beautyberries)?

    Rosie, I have beautyberries for you, too. I'd love to get the blackberry lily. I'd also like your variegated porcelain vine if there is something else of mine that you'd like.

    Linda, it will be good to see you again. It's been too long! Thanks for offering the V. Snowball. I really need that shrub. You bet you can get the mazus reptans and society garlic.

    GGG, just how much of the Souther Shield fern would you like? I'm clearing out a space and have several. Just let me know. And, you can certainly have the Royal Standard hosta. They look so nice against the variegated foliage of the surrounding hostas. Thanks for offering the purple and the iron cross oxalis. I saw a garden in Tucker that had them next to hostas and they looked just fabulous. I think the purple oxalis is the only purple leaved plant I like besides heucheras. I would also like your stiletto. They are such cute little hostas, aren't they?

    Wildflower, I still have a beautyberry or two for you, plus a whole pot of the yellow corydalis. Thank you so much for offering a clematis, agapanthus, and rain lilies. How do you overwinter the agapanthus? I can't wait to put them in the garden.

    I still have lots more plants, and this doesn't have to be a one for one swap on my part. Let me know what you'd like.

    Carmen, I can bring you variegated porcelain vine in a pot (fyi-loathsome japanese beetles love it). I am looking for groundcover for under a tree, maybe a sprig of lamium or ajuga--either would be fine. I don't have either of these and would like to try them before I put more valuable epimediums (which I want to get in future) under there.

    ciao,

    I'll bring both afuga and lamium so you can decide, rb. The lamium will spread the quickest, but it will cover up your epimediums, so I'd go with the ajuga if I were you.

    can somebody tell me how the plant trades work, or where to look? I did look in FAQ and How to Use the Forums and Special Instructions...and I don't know how to get on the email list to get directions, etc, in case I might be able to come to the 10/22 plant trade. it sounds like loads of fun.

    also I don't know the etiquette. I'm pretty new, what if I don't have anything to trade that anybody wants? do we just bring what we've got even if nobody has said they want it? because I would hate to dig it up if it wasn't going to have a home. can we do seeds too or instead?

    i do have cannas. lots of cannas. Pretoria, short yellows, short reds, tall purple-leaf with red flowers, short purple-leaf with salmon/coral flowers. I also have sweet autumn clematis. lots of sweet autumn clematis. baby hollies, native. 2 kinds of gardenias (large once-bloomers and small everbloomers) i can do cuttings from. dwarf nandina. monkey grass. mondo grass. can you tell i am regardening a newish subdivision home? :) Oh, and a small baby Cherokee rose that wants a good home.

    Wanted: one of everything:) but especially a yellow lady banks, white lady banks, or any other rose or climbing rose you don't have to spray.

    thanks

    Hallelujah! I knew FlowersRme7 couldn't stay away from a backyard full of potted plants. Unless her daughter is in labor that morning, she will be there.

    Here's a portion of her e-mail to me.

    "I don't have my list updated as of yet so would you please post this for me
    If you have any baby items you no longer need and want to donate or trade them for plants please email me. It's my daughters first baby and she needs everything. She is having a boy.
    I have not updated my trade page since Spring so email me for available plants. Thanks"

    She is from Alabama and can't post to this forum, so find her on the member page and e-mail her. Don't do it when you are in a rush because you will be amazed at her long list of available plants.

    Kathy, it they're not taken, could I trade for Ajuga chocolate chip, Nearly Wild Rose (is that the pink one?) and a purple butterfly bush? I have a white one and the butterflies just don't seem to like it.

    I have beautyberries and Itea from your want list. I'm actually going to dig up my whole itea (it's huge), so you might just want to come to my house and get as much (or all) of it that you want. I'm in Decatur.

    Pam, I just got my myosotis from Springhill earlier this summer. It definitely spreads, but doesn't appear to be something that would be hard to pull out where you don't want it. I will bring you both for a Cinn Fern and I can always take more Christmas ferns even though I have quite a few.

    Carmen, I will bring you all 3, and would love the beautyberries and Itea, I will email you, but I think you are almost an hour from me. I also just read your list and would love a tardiva hydrangea and will give you a Hosta in return. I have a Golden Tiara Hosta that may be able to spare a small division if you have that one let me know and I will see what else I can spare.

I got one and it looked great, 'til the @$#%&*@# rabbits ate it to the ground!! They also ate my thriving little green-and-gold,and a mutablis rose. Will they come back from the roots? There are NO leaves left on any of the three plants.

    Oct. 22 is very busy for me, but I'm going to try and make room. I'm still very low on plants that I have; would some BBQ pork be a sufficient trade? They are getting good reviews lately. Here's my meager list of what I hope to have:

    purple hyacinth bean seeds
    moonvine seeds
    figs
    azalea "George Tabor"
    Clerodendrum aka Harelquin Glorybower
    money plant
    butterfly bush
    beautyberry

    Want
    almost any perennial that grows in shade - part sun
    native azalea
    purple lacecap hydrangea
    witch hazel
    corylus
    climbing hydrangea (the last one didn't make it . . .)

    Richard,
    yes, yes, yes on the BBQ! We've also got a lunch thread going a little further down on this exchange forum if you want to post that there. But I'll definitely be willing to trade a plant for BBQ pork. Not everyone eats meat, but I do!

    Would you be interested in Hydrangea serrata Beni Gaku? I took a couple of cuttings from this plant last month and they are still looking good so I guess that means they are taking root. I don't think anyone else has claimed them so far. I also took cuttings from a pink-flowering climbing hydrangea I have, but they died. I'm going to try again this fall so maybe I'll have some of that available for you at the spring trade.

    When you say "figs," do you mean figs to eat, or fig plants? Figs to eat would be nice. . . . . plants, too, of course.

    Wildflower,
    Anybody lay claim on that Crinum americanum, yet? If not, I'm interested! Take a look at my list again to see if there's anything else you would like. (Your Persicaria is looking really good, btw.)
    Thanks!

    Linda Gail,
    You have an impressive list of hydrangeas (my favorite plant). Would love to have any of the pink, purple varieties if I have anything you would like. Otherwise I'll take my chances on the open trade. Thanks --Lucy

    This is what I have:

    Hosta - blueish green with yellow and regular variegated
    Grandis Begonia
    Strawberry Begonia
    Money plant (grown from seed)
    Daylilies - mostly yellow (have not seen rust)
    Nandina
    Liriope - varigated and smaller green type
    Kilmarnack Pussy Willow - not sure how to propagate but will look up if anyone would like

    Any one have some tall breaded iris or Japansese iris to share? I have burgandy lanvender yellow TB. I just start to collect them so any other colors or bi-colored would welcome.

    Okay Lucy, I'll bring you a pink and a purple hydrangea for a bluish green/yellow hosta. I have just begun to appreciate the blue leaf varieties.

    My property used to be a pig farm and my hydrangea colors are very often different than they are supposed to be. My 'Forever Pink' is a deep, clear rose when fresh and turns red-purple as it ages. And my purples are deep purple. I can't say the strong colors will last more than a year or two in another soil.

    Farmerpickle, I have several iris--'Beverly Sills', 'Harvest of Memories', 'Spiced Custard' 'Swingtown' an unnamed very deep purple, and a very tall white, unnamed also. Are you listing three separate iris or one that is lavender, burgundy and yellow? E-mail me to finalize this trade.

    Everybody---I need a few folding tables. Please e-mail me if you can bring one.

    I can bring some iris that is dark in the fall, and light colored in the upper petals. It's an oldfashioned iris and very pretty.

    Pam, I've got a crinum americanum for you. Would love some of your agastache.

    A few days ago I got a slew of tropicals from my relatives in Biloxi who are moving to IN. I've got this huge cordylene - ti plant (click below for a pic) to trade. I already have one of these and don't need two....

    I'm looking for some plants for them that will be hardy in IN. Specifically, I know they want some winter-blooming honeysuckle 'lonicera fragrantissima'. Other than that, they like anything fragrant, but it'll need to be able to survive the winters there.

    Lindabeth, it's yours. Any one of the named hosta you have would be great.

    Thanks Linda and Glynis. I'll email you Linda (I'm open to any iris other than the 3 solid colors kinds I already have :-).
