2012 Spring MAG Swap: Plants you Have List

Saturday May 19, 2012 from 10am to 1pm

at GardengrammaâÂÂs Gorgeous Encampment in Burtonsville (see link below)

DIRECTIONS (I know that nobody ever reads directions, including me. But please read them anyway.)


DO post a list of the plants you HAVE on this thread. Please add Latin names and cultivar names, as applicable, if you can.

DO list any other garden stuff, such as seeds, tools, pots, magazines, books, and gnomes, that you wish to swap or give away. Somebody else might want it!

DO read other people's lists. If you see things you want, please e-mail the person directly via private e-mail to arrange the trade. To e-mail the person, click on their name at the top of their post.

DO update your lists when you think of more things you want.

DO feel free to update your member page with your Haves and Wants and to link your post here to any Plant Exchange page you may have.

DO NOT arrange trades on this thread. Please arrange them via private e-mail.

DO NOT use this thread your Wants. That's what the Want: 2012 MAG spring swap thread is for.

DOs and DONâÂÂTs for the SWAP:

DO wear a nametag.

DO label your motor vehicle with a big, visible label.

DO mark reserved plants (i.e., plants which you already arranged a trade for) so that other people do not take them by mistake.

DO label your plants. The plant labels do not need to be fancy. Popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, or masking tape are fine.

DO take plants labeled âÂÂFreeâ or âÂÂPlease TakeâÂÂ. (In fact, PLEASE DO take plants labeled âÂÂFree" or âÂÂPlease TakeâÂÂ.)

DO ask if you are not sure whether it is ok for you to take the plants.

DO, when you leave, take home (or sneak into somebody elseâÂÂs vehicle) the plants you brought that nobody wanted.

DO NOT take anything marked "Reserved" or labeled for someone else.

DO NOT leave any unwanted plants for Gardengramma to have to deal with.


Answer: Yes, you can come even though you don't have any plants to trade. Your main assignment is to bring food or other items for the pot luck. (Chocolate-containing foods are strongly encouraged.) Please discuss your potluck contributions at the MAG Spring Swap Food thread, not here. Also, note that, in many cases, the reason people are bringing these particular plants to the swap for you to take home is because the plants are, um, âÂÂvigorousâÂÂ. In a few years, you, too, will have lots of plants to trade.

Happy gardening!

    I've decided some of my daylilies' colors just aren't working for my garden color schemes. I could bring two Klehm daylilies if someone is interested. 'Smooth Vanilla Pastel' and 'Afternoon Tea Time.' Pictures are here and here However, the pictures (at least on my screen) are not perfect. I'd say Smooth Vanilla Pastel is really a creamy daylily with a strong chartreuse/green throat. And Afternoon Tea Time is essentially sherbet orange. They are nice, healthy plants in great condition, and they have spent the last year in my garden, enjoying a good compost-enriched soil. My yard has no daylily rust, and these plants seem free of it as well. If those would be good in your garden, let me know! At this point, I am looking for healthy shade shrubs for my back yard -- viburnums, pretty azaleas, hydrangeas, or things that can take DRY shade would be great, and a few shade perennials -- possibly asarums, carex, hakone grass -- or ...? Thanks, Julia

    All, This year I'd like to try recycling the spoons and forks. Would it fly if I put a box out for used utensils? I will take them all home to wash and reuse for other events.

    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...
