2010 Spring MAG Swap: Plants You WANT List

Saturday May 8, 2010 from 10am to 1pm

at GardengrammaÂs Gorgeous Encampment


If you're new to the swaps, please take the time and have the courtesy to read these posts. They're here to help everyone have a good time.

Yes, you can come if you don't have any plants.

1. Post a list of the plants you want, ideally with Latin names to avoid confusion and cultivar names if they have them, and you know what they are.

2. Read other people's lists. If you see things you want and would like to swap or trade for, e-mail the person to arrange it.

3. Do NOT arrange the swap or trade on this thread.

4. Do NOT post a list of plants that you HAVE for swapping or trading on this list. There is a separate HAVE thread for this purpose.

5. Do NOT discuss who will be bringing what kind of Bavarian apple tart or other food to the swap. There is a separate HAVE thread for food.

6. Do update your member page with your Haves and Wants.

7. Much more info on the Haves list thread.

Wishing everyone a great swap! Happy gardening!

    I'm doing my Costco run on Wednesday, is there anything else we need? Just want to double-check. I'm presuming there will be grill equipment on site? If not, then my alternate food to bring is -- cooked rotisserie chicken & rolls. Let me know. Jette

    WANTED: 2008 fall mag swap: plants you want list

    I can't have anything bulky in my car at my destination, but could drop off my self-watering containers at someone's house on my way up and pick up stuff on the way back. I also have good access to a supply of 4 gallon buckets so could drop those off too. Eggplant seeds!!!! - *any* kind except Black Beauty and Swallow (I have those). Asian or smaller/thinner (not mini) eggplants preferred LARGE pots - over 5 gallons. Plastic preferred. Black Nursery pots ok. Tomato seeds for somewhat cooler weather or shade tolerant plants. ones that can go a little earlier, have a shorter growing period and the plant is a little smaller than normal. Plant supports for smaller plants. Such as peppers or eggplants. Like the ring systems that are used for flowers. I found that while eggplants don't need staking for support, I think they need staking for wind. Small amounts of fertilizer. Fish and seaweed or if someone had the garden tone for veggies that would work too. Or pesticides that would be good for spider mites yet be safe for food.

    I know people have brought zucchini chocolate bread (like a cake really), but I don't remember zucchini fudge. I'll bring fudge brownies, probably with nuts or rum.
