    Christie, they will leave it by your door. I get stuff delivered from UPS all the time and they don't care if you are there or not. It is coming from the library where I work as that was easier than taking it to the post office.

    Thanks, Sassy and Marie! I'm so excited about getting the daylily and Marie's box! Things are getting hectic here, we've got two days to go til the big day!!

    Everyone keep your fingers crossed and say some prayers for us, the forecast is calling for wind and a 30% chance of rain. We could move it indoors, but even in my almost MIL's huge house, it would still be very crowded. Not to mention we wouldn't get the pictures we want. Cliff's cracking up at me. Normally I WANT rain so I don't have to water. And a little wind is usually a good thing because it blows any bugs off of my flowers and veggies and keeps mosquitoes and flies from invading us too badly.

    I'll try to checking in a bit the next few days, but it's really getting hectic. Just want to say that I love you guy and that I'll be around more next week.. well... maybe. Cliff gets this really mischievous look and won't tell me where we're going after the reception. He won't even tell me what I should pack!

    hi falldaisies =) i am guessing this is directed at me, and you want me to change the blurb beside your name? its hard to fit too much info in there, if you would summarize some general wants ...or what you want you want the blurb to say- i can edit it. it is best if its short and sweet, just a general idea of what you want. right now yours says - falldaisies zone 6 (flowering bulbs, artichokes & blueberries dwarf fruit trees indoors/citrus) if theres something else you want me to write there, let me know, but lets keep it short. then have you figured out how to edit your "seeds wanted" list? thats the place for all the specifics. just list everything that you want there, then when someone goes to your page they can read all that. its good to have a nice long want list, so dont be shy about listing everything, often times people will look over it and might even surprise you with extras from your want list. GW is not very intuitive with its layout, but at the bottom of every page theres a large grey area with many links. click on "member pages" and then edit your exchange list...from that page you can edit all your info and fill out your have and want lists.

    Hello everyone, I am from new mexico, zone 7a. I have been using the site for reference for quite a while now and finally decided to make an account. I am an avid seed collector (and grower of course) and was quite excited to find this forum. This newbie board is a great idea and I will definitely be contributing to it in the future :D At the moment I am living in an apartment so I am doing container gardening mostly, flowers and herbs atm, also trying a passion flower vine and a few silk trees. I am interested in succulents, cacti, and really I am open to try anything new. I really want to start growing most of my own food within the next couple years so veggies of all kinds would be greatly appreciated. I have more than one property I am growing at, so I am in no way limited on the types of plants I can grow. Thank you for the help and I look forward to our future exchanges :D -Gabe

    YAYYYY I can hear the long distance clapping from here!!! Thats soo sweet Lisa and YES Lisa fits in perfectly in this group of craziessss!!! Gotta love the laughs! I picked two cucumbers today YAYYY (some finally made it!) I cut one up already and its sooo sweet and yummy!! I surprise myself! lol Fox finally made me some tomato cages (yeppers this would be almost after the fact that they needed them but can't complain!) It is 92 outside and very humid, I was hoping the mosquitos don't like the heat since they survived the "cold" winter lol but alas they love it! I have Dunks in my eco filter but can't put them in the pond that I was trying to let dry out so guess Imma gonna have to get some more fishies for that pond... oh well just means I'll have two ponds eh? Melissa that hand looks great with your "X-rated" mini rose!!! Cant wait to see the hand holding roses!

    I received my "thank you" package from Kyna (Peony3) today. I just wanted to share a photo of the beautiful garden butterfly ornament that she sent. You can't tell from the photo but it's quite large and the colors are even prettier in person!


    Thanks so much, Kyna! I'll wait until Monday to ship your plants so they aren't sitting in the post office longer than necessary. Pat

    Hi Allison and Raven and everyone,

    Since this is a Holiday weekend and I haven't been able to get your boxes out to you this week they are going to go on Tuesday. I don't want the things I am sending to each of you to sit in the PO longer than they should. I will post the DC # on Tues.

    Sassy! My daylilies arrived this morning! Girls, let me tell you something, this woman is WONDERFUL! She not only sent me the that I won guessing her precious granddaughter's name, but She also sent me a Pink Cotton Candy fan and a fan of Crystal Pinot! These daylilies are GORGEOUS! I can't wait to see them bloom! Thank you SO much, Sassy! You have such a generous heart and I am thankful from the bottom of mine!

    I'm breaking my promise to not do any gardening until after the wedding tomorrow to keep from messing up my hands for the pictures, but my daughter and I are gonna go out and plant these right now since we're overcast and they'll have a chance to recover. They arrived in fantastic shape, BTW!



  • sassyd
    14 years ago

    Wendy, I'm so glad you liked everything dear. That daylily marked Skoler, the name of it is Golden Scroll, you can see a pic of it on my trade list. Its really beautiful and has a huge bloom. The small bunch you didn't know what it was is a type of sedum, slow growing, can take full sun or shade. Mines in full sun and does fine. The peppers are just ornmental, but make such a pretty bush covered in peppers. I thought with what you have going on in your life right now you needed an angel to watch over you and your Mom. Hugs sweetie. I had soooo much fun packing your box and I really meant to send you more daylilies than that, lol, I was up till midnight packing 4 boxes I needed to get out, so I was alittle 'rattled' lol. Oh, the groundcover is Ajuga.



  • sassyd
    14 years ago

    Girl please! You make someone else plant those for you! You're very sweet, I hope you enjoy them for many years with your hubby!

    We want to see pics of the wedding when you have a chance!


    Good luck sweetie!

  • sassybutterfly_2008
    14 years ago

    Sassy ~ oh! That groundcover is Ajuga? I have some in my yard but mine is burgundy leaved w/ blue flowers! Great, I'll plant them up together, I bet that'll look lovely!

    and you KNOW I wouldn't complain about more daylilies.. LOL jk :P

    You're right about that angel! We need all the blessings we can get right now.. Mom wants to go to the beach for 'a last hurrah' as she put it. We're just praying her strength will keep up til July.

    Thankyou again Sassy :)

    Hugs to everyone!

    Wendy....I was googling and found this pic. It has the sedum and the ajuga together, I think it looks nice, I'd change the color of the gazing ball but the plants look nice together.

    First I want to apologize for being MIA so long!! And to still let Em know that I haven't forgotten her. Will be mailing Tuesday am. Started to do it today and remembered the long weekend. I have them all picked just have to dig. Got the labels ready and all! I think she will like the plants I choose for her! I hope so anyway!! I do apologize for being so late in sending, but having a terrible time with my knee still! May have to go to the orthopedic surgeon next week. It sure has put a damper on things for the last few weeks!!
    Everyone have a wonderful and safe holiday! Em, I promise it is coming!! Melinda

  • sassyd
    14 years ago

    Melinda, I'll vouch for you anytime girl, no worries! I hope your knee problems are resolved with medication. I feel for you dear! I have really bad knee's, got it honest, Mom and Grandmom, I didn't stand a chance. Wishing you the best hun.


  • emsgarden
    14 years ago

    Melinda sweetie - I told you before - I am not worried - it is far more important that you deal with your health issues. I really don't want you worrying about this. I have heard nothing but good things about you and I know that when you can, you will share some of your wonderful plants with me. And even if something happened that you couldn't, I wouldn't be upset. I'm just not that way. So get better, take your time, I am sure that with your problems with your knee you shouldn't be digging! And I will absolutely LOVE anything you send - well not if its poison ivy LOL

    I know I have hardly been here myself. We are in the midst of remodeling and I am trying to work on my new gardens as much as possible. We are having a very large family gathering here for Father's Day so that has kinda pushed things to a head. Altho I did find time yesterday to visit a nursery that is going out of business lol She has posted on craigslist and had great prices. I picked up 5 gingers, 2 brugs, 2 pandora vines, 3 red and purple bleeding hearts, some cereus, a variegated hydrangea and a couple of other things that escape me this early for $24.00! I felt like a kid in the candy store lol
    Wendy - I have been keeping your mom in my prayers and hope that the beach trip becomes a reality for ya'll. Awesome box!!

    Sassyd - what a great box you sent Wendy - I can read her smiles :)

    Pat and Kyna - what a beautiful butterfly! That is going to be such a wonderful addition to Pat's garden.

    Bunny where are you hiding?? I hope you are starting to feel even just a wee bit better?

    Pixie hope all is well. Has Mud gotten into anymore trouble lately?? LOL

    OMGoodness - KATHY - TODAY"S THE DAY - HAPPY WEDDING DAY! i just know everything is going to be wonderful - Congratulations!!!

    Ok I will have to catch up some more later - Hugs all around!

  • christieb199
    14 years ago


    It was a very nice day here in Pittsburgh so I am only hoping that Kathy had the same sunny day for for her wedding!

    I came home late last night to a box on my porch :)
    I was so excited. I must have been calling Jason every hour asking if the box arrived before he went to work at 5pm and it had not come yet so I was thinking that it was going to be delivered on Saturday. But none the less it was here!!

    Thank you so much Becky! I have a new flower bed that I am going to post pictures of prior to me planting everything. I had class today, so could not get them in the ground. But they all still look great and have upright standing leaves. The particular flower bed is in the front of my house, immediately surrounding the house, so I am figuring that it gets some shade and some sun. I just do not know how to determine, the direction and what times it receives sun. I have not got that down pat yet. So before I plant all the wonderful plants that you sent me Becky, I have to make sure they will be ok in this bed or they will have to go elsewhere :)

    Becky sent me:
    Several different types of Lilies, maybe like 10 plants or so of just lilies!!!
    Sedum Autumn Joy
    Ice Plant
    Painters Paletle
    Mexican Hats
    Dogwood Seedlings

    I am not sure if I spelled everything correctly. But I am off to google pictures and spacing information for them all. Also going to print out pictures and try to make a garden organizer/picture book.

    Thank you so much Becky! I appreciate all of your plants that you have shared with me!!!


  • ramazz
    14 years ago


    Glad they all arrived in good condition. The plants you called lilies are actually bearded iris. Most of them are pretty tolerant and will do fine as long as they get sun part of the day. I can help you sort out what is what. I was trying to get them all in the box so I couldn't wrap each one individually. I still have some things that I want to send, so I will send another box later !!!


  • christieb199
    14 years ago

    Ok, here is the bed that I would like to put all the plants and flowers in.

    And here is the front of the house and the hill that it sits on, so the sun would only be on the bed... I do not know how much of the day? lol

    Do you think it would be ok to put all of them in this bed?


  • ramazz
    14 years ago


    Sorry, I signed off right after posting and have been busy today. Everything I sent you is very tolerant. None will tolerate deep shade (like in the middle of the woods) but all will tolerate some shade. Everything I sent is perennial. If they don't bloom, or don't take off, you can move them next year.

  • Melinda Hagen
    14 years ago

    First off, I want to apologize for not being on more! And secondly, for not sending my box to Em until now. I haven't had a good spring. Ripped the tendons and cartilage in my knee and it has been a nightmare. No yard work, no planting, etc. Still have to have a brace until the 16th of July and then we'll see if I need to do more to help it or not. It has been no fun!
    Anyway, I got my grandson to help dig some things and my box is on it's way to Em. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and lateness of my box! It was a terrible thing to do to a newbie, but couldn't do it without help.I hope you understand.
    The dc # is 0306 3030 0002 2499 9893. I found a couple of the labels after I packaged and so when you receive just holler and I'll tell you want their names are.
    Em, I loved my box and again so very sorry so late in sending! Melinda

  • emsgarden
    14 years ago

    Melinda - thank you so much for worrying about my box and getting it out to me. I hope the brace helps heal your knee so that you won't need further care for it. I can only imagine the frustration you must feel not being able to garden.

    I totally understood and wish you wouldn't have worried about it - you have enough to deal with but I am excited to know its on its way. Will post when I receive it. Thanks again

  • emsgarden
    14 years ago

    Wooohoooo - Received my great BIG box from Melinda and am sooo excited! She sent me:

    Abstract Art DL
    Golden Gift DL
    Bayport DL
    Rose Vervain
    Birchwood Parky's Gold Hosta
    Queen Josephine Hosta
    Hermann's Pride Lamium
    Deptford Pinks
    and two NOIDS that Melinda needs to ID for me - one of them is huge! looks like a small shrub!

    Everything was packaged so carefully and arrived healthy and happy looking.

    Melinda - again - you really didn't need to worry with this with all you have going on! I truly appreciate the fact that you had your grandson dig these up and sent them to me despite your problems. You are a sweetheart! Thank you - Thank you!! When you get a chance please get in touch about the NOIDS so I know how to care for them.

    Off I go to look these up and figure out where to plant them.

    Hugs!! Em

  • Melinda Hagen

    I'm a vegi garden newbie.

    I built 3 rasied beds, 24'x6'x2' deep, one for blueberries(acid),lingonberries(acid), strawberries, rhubarb, garlic, other perennial small fruit/vegi. The other two beds are for the vegi garden, plus I plan on making a couple of potato planters, and a couple of container tomatoes and peppers for potential overwintering.

    This will be my 3rd growing season in my first home. the first two I worked on the perennial fruit garden/orchard.

    These vegis are 100x worse than the fruits, too many options, how can one pick, especially when they all say they are the best?

    I know I want:
    Tomatoes (sauce, paste, salsa, fresh, cherry, weird colors[that taste good], I would like both hybrid and heirloom for comparison)
    Peppers (bells, sweets, hot [no hobanero or hotter])
    Sweet Potatoes
    Carrots (some super sweet for raw)
    Summer Squash/Zuccinni
    Winter Squash (not too wet, prefer drier)
    Green Beans
    Sweet Corn
    Edimame* (especially fond of)
    Melons (sweet, any)
    Basil (pesto)
    Any other vegi you think I should grow.

    I would be happy with direction, but truely grateful if someone would adopt me.
