browneyedsusan_gw(8a)April 6, 2012

The spring swap will be held on May 5 at the Bluejay pavilion at Oak Mountain State Park. A map of the park is available at:

http://www.alapark.com/parks/pdfs/oakmountain/oakmtndaymap.pdf (thanks to Apple911 for the link).

Please post trades here as we risk getting bumped off if we post them on the Discussions page. You will need to update/post (if you don't have one already) your trade lists on your Member pages- I plan to update mine this weekend.

Please encourage your friends and neighbors to attend. Any plant/gardening related item- plants, plant stakes, labels, compost, pots, jewelry, preserves, rocks, etc. can be traded. We usually start trading at 10 am and have a potluck lunch afterward. Nelson has started a lunch list on the Discussions page.

Finally, I got to this thread. lol

Nelson- I would like to swap a birdhouse for one of your Colocasia esculenta 'Coal Miner'. What kind of birdhouse do you want? I really like black capped chickadees, so busy & cute. And they love the seeds of Echinacea purpurea. Gee, that plant is at the other house, I better move some of it. I will share some with you. Let me know what bird to build for.

Susan- Santolina chamaecyparissus or Lavender cotton is a hardy plant that has surprised & pleased me. It grows in the heavy clay of my front yard & has done well. So consider it for a trade. I would like some of your Amsonia ciliata & cuttings of variegated Weigela. I think I read the iris 'Stepping Out' is heirloom.

Catbird- I would like one of the Wax Myrtle seedlings that you have & some seeds of Amsonia hubrichtii (Arkansas blue star). Please see what you may like from my list. I still have plants I need to check on before I add them to my exchange list.

kolet66- I have some seeds of crookneck summer squash that you may have, in exchange for any of your red lettuces. I have a fig tree, so I could bring you some cuttings of it to root.

Apple911- I have some cannas, some red, some yellow. I will bring you some of each, in exchange for some of your Grape hyacinth.

littlehelper- I have a Tea Olive ready to go. Butterfly weed, I will need to check on, as it is at the other house. I would like your Rhodea japonica (Sacred Lily).

hoovergal- I would like some of the variegated periwinkle & Four o'clock pink/white bicolored. Please sent me a list of plants that you are wanting.

Well, this took me a while. If I missed anyone who is going to the swap, let me know.

Hi Susan, I have the Santolina in pots, ready to go. I will put some of the Iris "Summer Olympics" in a pot for you on Monday.

If you still have some of the seeds: Liatris purple, & Salvia "Coral Nymph", I would like some of those.

I have seeds of Salvia "Blue Bedder", Canterbury Bells "Cup & Saucer Mix", Delphinium "Pacific Giant Mix", Coleus "Rainbow Mixed Colors". If you would like any of them, let me know.
Thanks red50-Joyce

Red50- Sounds great. I have a lot.

I have amaryllis bulbs, oak tree seedlings (3), pumpkin plants (10), cottonwood tree (1), and I'm sure I have forgotten something. It's hard to remember everything while I'm at work.

The 'Coal Miner' is yours, along with anything else you want. Any birdhouse is fine (if it's appealing to nuthatches then all the better).

Thanks a bunch!
