    WANTED: 2013 mag spring swap: want list


    Comments (39)
    TINA asked me to start a new thread since I wanted to make sure that I had captured everyone's emails from my time in hospital. I am now facing complication 2, but my husband has offered to stand in for me, bring and collect everything, and even bring the food. Will everyone please look at my last because there are many things I asked for, but did not receive a response on, and I do not want people to expect we've made an agreement and not get it. Thanks, Lisa

    HAVES: 2016 SPRING MAG SWAP (Saturday, May 7) - Plants You Have List


    Comments (40)
    Likewise!! It was so wonderful actually meeting everyone and thank you SO very much for your generosity! Gardengramma, thank you especially for hosting, and providing such a gloriously beautiful place for us to meet. (You did am amazing job dialing up the weather as well). Since I got there without my leucojeum or redhot poker I'd be open to making one-off arrangements. I had to get the leucojeum right back into the ground but I can dig some more. Some people also mentioned a possible fall meeting? Which of course would be better for leucojeum, peonies, other fall-dormant plants... One other note - I thought I'd be able to tell people this as we traded but it was a little too chaotic -- in our area we have a serious problem with Japanese stilt grass, very invasive in the woods near us. I don't know if it's widespread but I don't want to be responsible for spreading it. I'm pretty sure I did not include any ride-alongs in my trades, BUT, stilt-grass makes a lot of seed. It's incredibly easy to pull up and easy to kill, but if it goes to seed, it makes an awful lot. Don't let anything grassy come up in your transplants...

    Thanks cecilia, that would be great!
    Also, if anybody has any excess bulbs (tubers, corms, rhizomes) they are willing to get rid of, I will gladly accept them and give them (the plant, not the person) a good home.

    I'm with Rich on this one. Please check my trade list (link below). I need everything as my yard has nothing but overgrown bushes. :-(

    Oogy, if you still have the Catnip unclaimed, I could use some.

    I will be bringing food, but let me know if you want to make any other arrangements for trades. I do have some houseplants.

    Thanks All!!

    I'd love dry shade plants, and trillium or bloodroot -- dare I dream? -- but I would also appreciate:

    Hellebores with clear colors
    Japanese Painted Ferns
    Most ornamental salvias
    Lemon thyme

    And again in the laughable dreams category:
    Mahonia aquifolium (Oregon grape-holly)
    Calycanthus - the red-blooming one that does smell nice
    Other relatively pest and disease-free shade shrubs, LOL

    Thanks - hope someone has some of these!
    Also, please read my exchange and member pages to find out my real email address -- it's not the one GardenWeb has on its email form.

    Christmas ferns
    cinnomon ferns
    Ostich ferns

    The names of people I promised blue monk's hood divisions to last fall so I don't over promise divisions. (I have a memory like a steel sieve).

    I'm here! I am still quite confused about how all these various 'haves' and 'wants' get published--and where. But, I've updated my profile with some of mine! I'm a first-timer, and I can always bring food!!

    I am interested in hellebores, fruit trees, hazel nut suckers, rose cuttings (rooted, etc. See my trade list, it's pretty complete. You can make up your mind when you come to the swap, after all it's at my house.

  • cfmuehling
    17 years ago

    Hello all!

    I'm in a stinky position this year. As some of you are aware, we had a house fire in December. Mostly heat and smoke damage, but where there's air, there's smoke.
    The restoration people took everything out to be cleaned, replaced or reimbursed, and threw out my bulbs and seeds. So no winter sowing for me, and no spring planted bulbs.

    Along those lines, I am hoping someone might have some canna bulbs to share. I'm looking for red or bright orange. I had 'Bengal Tiger' 'Lanape' (with the bronzey striped foliage) and 'Red Futurity' I was looking forward to seeing bloom. I also lost my dark maroon dahlias. The seed collection I can only muse over, because I had so many I was going to plant.

    I would love some 'Burgundy' Gaillardia, Spiderworts, Creeping Jenny, Lungworts, Salvia - blue and/or reds(Steven, got extra this year?), Agastache that is peach, some of that new Black Jack (?) sedum? Gosh, things that take full sun. Extras.

    Luckily, as anal as I am, I have plant and seed records, so I'll be able to be reimbused for stuff like this, but in the meanwhile, I have pretty much nothing to share.

    I shall bring lots of brownies Food. And lots of it. Wahhhhh.

    Thanks for thinking of me!

  • juliat
    17 years ago

    Christine - I am going to bring you a big tupperware box full of seeds. Some are last falls, some a year older, but they should all germinate fine. Achillea, probably red salvia, regular purple foxgloves, and a gazillion seeds that I didn't plant this year. Have fun! Do you need any common daylilies, coreopsis, rockgarden iris, or anything I listed under 'haves'? Let me know.

    Kimka - How do I send you email? I've got blue-blooming caryopertis ('Dark Knight') - I can give you a young plant that rooted itself last fall from a layered branch I guess, coreopsis 'Creme Brulee' (yellow) and purple foxgloves (unless the seedlings expire in the next month). Do you have any of my 'wants'? Please let me know! My email address is what I've listed on my trade/mypage, not the GardenWeb email form. Thanks.


  • kimka
    17 years ago

    Oh Christine,

    I'm so sorry about the fire. I hadn't heard before. I can provide spiderwort divisions, although my markers have been lost and I won't know what colors you'll get--blue, purple or white. Since I have mostly shade I don't have much else for you unless you need blue monkshood. For annuals, I have a bucnh of calendulas started: pink zeolights and oranges. I've also got some mammoth stocks if you want.

    Julia, I'll send you an email about a trade.

    I have some sweet autumn clematis. It's a bit invasive, but boy, will it cover a chain-link fence. It makes a lovely white cloud of tiny beautifully scented flowers in the fall.

  • cfmuehling
    16 years ago

    Thanks all, for the kind thoughts.

    I'm looking at a neat sedum, 'Black Jack' which I'd really like to have. Does anyone have a leaf or two?

    Also, the same darned chickens that were laying eggs under my hosta last year, have taken advantage of us not living in our house this last winter. They've roosted and scooped out chicken-tummy-sized holes in the garden. It looks like they've killed some of my hosta (believe it or not!) and several columbine. Does anyone have any 'Crimson Star' or 'Black Barlow?'

    They also dug up a heuchera 'Plum Pudding' that I'd really liked. Grrrr!

    I'll see you on the Haves. I think I might be able to tease some things out of our gardens!


  • tabassam
    16 years ago

    Hi all, i have finally come to the sad conclusion that all of my Salvia guaraniticas and mexicanas are not coming back. If anyone has an extra one....I promise to protect them better this winter.

    I'm overwhelmed at what I've found at this site! I'm from Baltimore and will be bringing some desserts to pitch in, and don't want anything specific except to say that I have a new (to me) yard that's lacking any real landscaping. I can't wait!

  • treehouse
    16 years ago

    I want to get some interesting heirloom tomato plants. Last year's swap provided a bunch of really good ones, thanks Laurel.

    I am bringing a friend who has moved into a benignly neglected 3 acres and would benefit from the 'if the trunk is open and the plants are labled' policy.

    See ya on the 6th.

  • lynnt
    16 years ago

    I can't believe it, but I've lost all of two plants that have been relentlessly perennial in my garden for over a decade:

    - Jewels of Opar, a low chartreuse groundcover (reseeding annual) with garnet seedpods
    - Jacob Kline Monarda.

    There -- I've confessed -- I killed off Monarda! It was an accident, in the course of eliminating a stand of artemisia Limelight and Tansy, but it's true.

    Anyone got these two to spare, in addition to the private swaps I've arranged?


  • chrismd

    16 years ago

    If anyone has any of those little wire fences that press into the ground, I'd appreciate it. I don't care how ugly or rusty as I will be using them to hold down the deer netting in the vegetable garden.

    I will be coming late so if you have to leave before I get there, please give them to my friend Kathleen.

    How 'bout a last minute want?

    I'm teaching in the morning, so I won't arrive before 11:00, I don't think. I'd be thrilled if someone saved me a spot under a tree or up near Heniretta's driveway fence.

    I'll be driving my gorgeous little red truck, and maybe, just maybe, bringing a little wagon train of my students. I'm hoping, anyway!

    See you Saturday. I'm so excited.

  • giverny
    16 years ago

    I want your expertise! If I have time before the swap I'm going to dig up a few things I'd like to get identified. I think all are just weeds, except possibly a fleshy wildflower. May also have a cutting from a flowering bush. So, stop by my car and tell me what you think.


  • treble
    16 years ago

    sorry for the late notice, but just found out I can make it tomorrow...
    if anyone has any extra fragrant plants, I would love to take them off your hands, especially fragrant creepers, like corsican mint, thymes, lavenders, lemony, anything underfoot...or low maintenance fragrant overhanging... or fragrant long blooming... night blooming (nicotinia?).

    Also, advice on gardening while on immunosuppressants...
