    I just started in Hydroponic indoor gardening in a small apartment located in South Central Wisconsin (zone 4-5). I am really wanting to try to grow:

    Nicotiana Rustica (Sacred Tobacco)
    Sweet Grass
    Cotton
    Eggplant
    Thyme
    Oregano
    Sundew (carnivorous plant)
    Pitcher Plant ( carnivorous plant)
    Any sort of dwarf veggie plants, particularly non-vining, bush beans (I love garden fresh beans! Last Summer I bought some beans that said they were bush, but they vined all over the place!! The slugs got a feast I envied!)
    Dwarf Strawberries

    Thanks! What a wonderful opportunity to connect with other gardeners! :)

    Oh I hope we can put our names on them! I really enjoy knowing who I got from, and when the flowers bloom it is a nice reminder of that person! : )

    I have also put my name on all the seeds I am sending, so if it doesn't grow you know who to blame! LOL

    I'm so glad to hear that the seeds I sent out are making it to their new homes and two more cards with fantastic goodies have arrived to my home. Alana (poisondartfrog), thank you so much for the Argemone! I've really been wanting to try some of these but have been having a heck of a time finding seed. And the Pentapetes phoenicia, oh my goodness - this is the first I've heard of this species but as soon as I received the seeds I started reading everything I could find on it and this is most certainly my kind of plant. How absolutely gorgeous and I'm obsessed with the Monticello gardens and Jefferson's work as a gardener so it's so perfect. And last, but most certainly not least, the Ipomoea nil 'Sunrise Serenade' - this looks like an absolutely stunning variety. I'm doing a fence of Ipomoeas next season and this will look gorgeous there. Maria (elf7), thank you so much for the gorgeous card and the round carrots are absolutely perfect! They grow fantastically in the rocky soil here and I also love to grow them in containers and hanging pots. They're incredibly amusing. And I'm putting in a cutting garden and very much look forward to growing the dahlia zinnias there. ~Amanda

    Ok, this swap has literally brought me to tears...I have people sending me a "SECOND" list of who they are sending to...The generosity of you all is overwhelming ( as well as making my hands sore..LOL)

    Most of you dont know that my husband took our Christmas money out of the bank last week, and lost his wallet five minutes later..I was soo upset...BUT after seeing all of the giving here, and the "true" spirit of the Holidays..you ALL have made this the best Christmas for me. I thank each of you for giving so much...and YES, even one pack of seeds is generous in my book.

    Also, use a return address just so there isnt a problem with them getting mailed...I didnt put my name, just an address..but do what you want..maybe even put "santa"..LOL

    when we start to receive the cards...please post, and let us know what you recd...Lets keep the fun going !! and also we can let each other know we appreciate what the other one has done for us.

    Unusual vegetables, decorative corn, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, bush beans, pole beans, carrots, kohlrabi, eggplant, and decorative gourds.

    OK I was hesitant to join, but heck I can't miss out on all the fun. My wish list is short and hopefully simple.

    would really really really love some giant headed red cockscomb, my 15 yo saw some at the county fair and wants to grow some and I would love to put these in her stocking.

    For me would you believe I don't have any plain ole purple coneflowers?

    so my list is:
    Cockscomb....really giant read
    Purple coneflowers
    any daisy or daisy like flower
    anything that smells good

    Question??? is there a way to search these 2 threads by the type of seeds I have? To make it easier than going trough all the list and finding someone that matches my seeds? I hope that makes sense.

    Hi!
    I know that i already have a list of twenty but i just want to add one more:

    21: Carnivorous Plants

    I recently got involved in them and want to expand my collection any carnivoures are welcome.

    Kamil

  • suecirish
    14 years ago

    Mary, if you have something specific to search like "cosmos" or "morning glory" type those words into your search function. This is usually CTRL-F (both keys hit at the same time). Then just keep clicking "find next" and it shold take you to every instance where that word(s) occurs on the page. You can write down the person's GW name and continue on. This might be a quick way to search for the people who have a few specific types. Hope that helps.

    Hello,

    I hope I'm not to late either. I was really busy with school and getting ready for the holidays that I completely forgot about this! Anyways, better late than never, right? Honestly, I'm so new to gardenweb that I don't even have a want list, but as I sit hear typing it's not hard to come up with a few things :-).

    Lupine morello cherry (any red or named lupine cultivar that will come true from seed)
    Dianthus-Desmond and Itsaul white (really any that come true from seed)
    Agastache cana (any that come true from seed and hardy to zone 5, but I'm especially looking for Purple Pygmy and Rosita)
    Agastache rupestris (any that come true from seed and hardy to zone 5)
    Acacia dealbata or Acacia farnesiana (really any fragrant acacia)
    Phlox paniculata (any that come true from seed)
    Monarda didyma (any disease resistant varieties that will come true from seed)
    Eucalyptus cinerea (silver dollar eucalyptus)
    Black Mondo Grass
    Basket of Gold (aurinia saxitalis)
    Foxgloves (any that come true from seed but really like white ones)
    Centranthus ruber (red valerian)
    Dame's Rocket
    Gas Plant
    Stachys marcantha superba
    Heliotrope marine (or any named heliotrope cultivars)
    Gallairdias (any that come true from seed)
    Liatris Kobold (bulbs or bulblets)

    Any perennials or trees/shrubs that are fragrant or will feed butterflies and their caterpillars. Again, as I haven't been on here for a long time, this isn't a complete list. I may update it in a couple days.

    Happy Holidays to everyone!!

    Something is wrong with either my computer or my internet service. NOW I can't even get into my email! I will have to go somewhere else and set one up. Flwers4ever (Kym) I will email you my address when I get that set-up. I have been trying all day to get in and can't. That is why I haven't sent my address.

    This is gonna be fun! I'm glad to see everyone having fun in this! I hope grovespirit gets better. Yesterday morning, Nov 24th after 2am I leaned down to pick something up beside PC and got sharp pain in head..which I had this slight pain before for few day. I got up and fell in the living room. Heart was racing. Ambulance called. Went in for blood & urine test, CT, EKG.. thankfully nothing was found to be wrong, but the problem persist. 18 hrs later heart thrust twice and raced for over a min. Now it's been over another 18 hrs. I feel better but headache in that spot still there a bit. I'm suppose to get more tests done. I think the strong pain is only the hearts reaction to it! I hope that anyone that is ill in any way gets better soon. It sucks to have any kind of illness any kind of complications whatsoever. Lets hope everyone stays safe and healthy this year and the years to come.

    Happy Holidays everyone, be well!
