WANTED: Plant Swap

browneyedsusan_gw(8a)March 14, 2007

Several people said May 5th would be a good date for the swap at Oak Mountain State Park, so let's settle for that.

If you have never been to the swap before, I encourage you to come and meet all the wonderful peope who post in this forum. You will be surprised to find that you can trade almost anything you have- perennials, shrubs, seeds, annuals, groundcovers, rocks, magazines, garden art, peat moss, fertilizer, potting soil, pots, cakes, pies etc. You also will learn a lot as there are many experienced gardeners who attend every swap. There is usually a potluck lunch afterward.

Susan.

I may actually try to attend this. I think my driver (aka my husband) knows where this park is located. What time to arrive? And I bring food?
Yet another question - how do I plant and how many do you think I should bring?

I'm new to this forum and just saw the posts about the plant swap. My daughter and I are interested in coming to the plant swap and are wondering if anyone would be interested in composted horse manure? I have 5 horses so compost ALOT of manure. I would be happy to bag some up and bring it if anyone would be interested. I also make compost tea and could bring some of that too. I just love plants and am always looking to add more! Thanks.

Terry,
Please save 3 Malvaviscus arboreus for me. I planted the rooted cuttings you gave me at the fall swap outdoors and mulched them but they didn't make it. I should have saved them in my garage but I had very little room. What can I bring you?
Thanks,

Susan.

Terry and Wayne,
The hibiscus had put out small shoots. After the freezing temperatures we just had, they have turned black and mushy and look really bad. I'm not sure if they will survive. Please let me know if there is something else that I can bring you. Susan.

Glad I checked in, I'm going to try to attend. We've been getting our house ready to sell so I'm covered in paint and dust. It's a lot of work but hopefully we'll be able to move to the place we found and I will be able to freely express myself horticulturally, lol.

I think I have managed to change my e-mail addy for gardenweb. Changed addys months ago but forgot to change the one attached to this site.

Wanted to add that I've double-checked my addy and it is now the correct one. However, I'm not going to be able to take part in plant trading this time around as there is just too much going on with school, work, houses, etc. Saturday is also h's birthday so I'm not sure what we'll be doing for that. Still, I'm hoping to be able to fit a few hours into my schedule, I missed seeing y'all last fall!

Strobe I dug up one baby today will try tommorrow and get some more bigger ones. I would like some agastache purple and apricot sprite. Think those would be great for attracting butterflies but not be too invasive. Now these redbuds are babies about 8 to 15 inches tall, just want to make sure you know what I mean by saying babies.

I'm not going to be able to attend after all. Some fool rear ended me on the way to work one morning and totaled out my pickup truck. So I have no way to bring all of the mulch that I was going to bring. I can't convince my daughter to take me in her truck so I'll keep bagging mulch and try to make it to the fall one. Sorry.
