HAVE: Cleveland County / Shelby/Kings Mountain Area Plant Swap

aezarien(7b)January 16, 2010

I know it is ~really~ early but we are already setting up the greenhouse for early sowing and propagation so I just thought I would throw this out there.

Plans for a Spring Cleveland County plant swap/Spring gathering are in progress. So far all I know is that I am going to host it at my house and I have already purchased some door prizes and such. I wanted to try to get an early head count for those who might be interested in coming out this way so I can plan realistic activities for the day and arrange for adequate seating/table space..etc. There will be access to running water and a bathroom.

I am thinking..maybe an activity at eleven to win gardening stuffs, swap at noon, and food to follow..and then see where it goes from there. It depends on where everyone is coming from though because I don't want the time frame to keep anyone from coming.

Anyway.. I have some ideas but am open to suggestions so feel free to share your thoughts..

Hi, How far away is Cleveland County from Fosyth County? I'm in Winston-Salem. Depending upon the date of your swap, I might be interested in coming. I usually do the Winston-Salem, Greensboro, & Raleigh/Garner Swap. How many folks do you guys generally have? Thanks, jdbheartease

Ah, I used to live in Winston-Salem. It is about two hours from here if you take a few back ways..but not much longer if you take I-40 to 321 to 74. And my house is right off of 74.

I haven't quite set a date yet because I am looking from so far ahead and this will be the first swap held at my house so I can't tell you the response we will get. I don't want to jinx myself but we are sowing a lot of veggies, herbs, perennials, and a few annuals including several heirloom varieties. I am hoping to have plenty of plants here no matter who shows up but I will know closer to the date. I'll compile a list of what we are working on later on this coming week to give everyone an idea.

Thanks for getting back with me. Possibly, I'll come if it doesn't conflict with my schedule. I love a good plant swap!

How does your plant swap work? Do you guys just set all plants on the tables and call for everyone to go in and pick 1 plant off the table and continue this for a couple of rounds, then up in to 2 plants, then 3, and then just go in and take what you can use??? Looking forward to hearing more about your swap.

Hi, I may be interested as well. I saw you have Charles Grimaldi brugmansia, I lost mine a couple of years ago. I have some woods with native plants, are you looking for sun or shade plants?
I often work on weekends but if I know the date ahead of time, I can arrange something.

Let me know, Karen squirrelspur

Yep, I still have the Charles Grimaldi chugging along in the greenhouse I can start a cutting of for you. I have both sun and shade so either will do. Where would you be coming from?

I am thinking either Saturday, April 24th or May 1st or 8th. I would rather do it sooner than later so I can limit the upkeep on my extras but I don't want to end up doing it on a date that the other long-running swaps are being held.

As far as how.. I am more of an organizer than an athlete. I'm trying to think of a fun way to do it that requires as little physical activity as possible. I'm not exactly lazy, just really clumsy. :D

Hi I would be coming from Pilot Mountain, north of Winston-Salem. Possibly Judy and I could carpool from her location if she is willing.

I can go with any date as long as I have enough notice, a month's notice would be nice as we do monthly schedules.

The CG brug would be great, thank you! I miss it, it is one of the best brugs.

I like this one... I believe it is called a pink favorite. It was the first to bloom last year and the flower is about as big as a lunch plate. The Charles Grimaldi is lurking in the background getting ready to open.

Hi!

Now that I know where Kings mountain is (sheesh I live in Gastonia) I would love to come, I have missed every swap so far, but I do have plenty of terribly ordinary perennials, tropicals, a few baby roses, possibly a Brugmansia Cutting or two (If they survive winter, so far they are doing great) I am sure there is a ton of otherstuff around here that could use dividing.

Earlier would be better than later for me, I would likely come with my MIL.

Have a terrific day, look forward to learning more

Frances.. I don't care what you have as long as you bring yourself. I'd love to have you if you can make it.

Karen - I just got your email a few minutes ago and will have a look over it. Same goes for you and everyone who wants to come though. Spring is exciting and fun but can get stressful quick when there is a lot to do. I personally don't have any expectations. As long as nobody brings anything invasive or anything like poison ivy, I'm good.

If anyone has a facebook, I can be found under aezarien@yahoo.com. Just don't send any email to that address because I never check that account. :) I am documenting some of our planty activities for this winter under my notes. I can't promise it will be interesting or helpful but.. it's garden stuff lol.

Just wanted to check to see if a definite date & time has been set. Karen and I are planning on coming. I'll bring whatever I can find it my garden that needs dividing. I've also wintersowed 15+ jugs so far and hope to wintersow more by the end of this week. So hopefully, I'll have some new stuff to share.

I noticed you had daylillies on your list. Will there be any at the swap? I'm slowly getting into daylillies.

Thanks in advance for hosting this swap. Judy

I'm thinking maybe April 24th for now. Since it is pretty early, if this becomes a conflict closer to the date we can make arrangements. I will be planning to be prepared to hold this on the 24th however.

Daylily is a rather new fascination for me so I have no clue when some of them come up. I know I do have some early bloomers and I tried to pick reblooming varieties. I do have quite a few varieties in pots though that I can steal a root from if there is one you are particularly interested in. I have photos of the unknowns on my facebook that I will tag for you. I don't have a name for them but they sure are pretty.

As far as seeds go, for those of you who are not on my facebook, here is a list of the new seed we purchased to plant. I have a shoebox full of seed in my greenhouse that I haven't cataloged yet. I need to drop a few to see if they will still germinate before I list those though. If you would like me to set aside a few seed or start a few plants for you, please let me know.

Hi Tina,

Sent you a 'friend request' on Facebook.

The 24th is great, but I think the HighPoint swap may also be on that date, not an issue for me I can't get there, but some may be going.

I have a surplus of:

Mother of Thyme
Pink Shrub rose (unknown variety, very hardy, fast growing rebloom)
Yellow Shrub rose (as above)
Common Blue Hydrangea
Small Elephant Ear offsets (plain green and maybe some purple stem)
Dahlia Mixture
Mix Glads
Canna (burgundy leaf/red flower)
Canna (green leaf orange-red flower) VERY TALL
TBIris Very old, light purple, smells like grape coolaid

A few Brugmansia cuttings (rooted) provided they survive. I have NOID pink and yellow

Possibly other things.

I am looking for shade plants, native or not, do need to be tough, don't need any ground covers, (although, I don't think you can ever have too many hosta)

Really need some privacy screening/shrubs to hide and ugly chainlink and the neighbors!

Not looking for the latest and greatest new cultivars, prefer the 'solution' plants, tried and true that can survive shade, tree roots and stringent water restrictions in summer!

Gotta run, have a great day everyone!

Frances

Just dropping in to give a quick update. I did miss the post about the High Point swap. My friend, Carol, who will be helping me says she can't do the 1st but I can certainly move ours to the 8th of May to avoid conflicts. I'm flexible.

I apologize. I have been trying to log in for about a week and kept getting a connection time out. I don't know if it was the site or my computer.

Anyway...

Christy - Are you closer to Cherryville or Dallas? I used to work up in Cherryville and always found it quicker to take Dallas Cherryville Highway to 150. 150 will dead end at Marion and once you take a left there you will go straight until you cross over 74. From there it is left at the gas station then your first right onto Caleb and I live about.. maybe a little over a half mile from there.

Haha..and don't worry. I am a lot more sane in person than I act on facebook.. I think.

Good news all around. Had a few setbacks but I now have over 1000 healthy seedlings chugging along in the greenhouse and that Charles Grimaldi cutting is rooted and starting to make new leaves.

I'm just checking in to see where everyone is at and to see if there were any specific requests. That way I know what to plan to plop in the ground and what to set aside and if I need to drop some more seed for my personal garden. Too, I am direct sowing a handful of things so if I need to make extras for the swap, I'd like to go ahead and start those.

Just let me know!

Hi Tina, I still planning on coming. I would like to get some tarragon from you if I can. I've got over 30+ containers that I've wintersow, so I'll have to see what's coming up. Right now, in the garden I have sveral different types of sedum, toad lilies, primulas, spiderworrts, lemon balm, ditch daylilies and arum coming up. I might have some corydalis if it survived the winter. Does any of that sound of interest to anyone?

JD - I can start some or I already have one that overwintered in a pot that is coming up now, if you want that.

I've seen some daylily and lemon balm coming up but no toad lily yet. It's too dang warm outside for the yard to be so bare. It's killing me lol.

Will you have tomato plants at your swap? Judy

I have a few varieties of them growing now and have seed left. I have brandywine, better boy, and early girl growing but I have seed for those and I may have some best boy left which are a good patio variety. I am sowing more seed tonight so just let me know how many you want and I'll start a few if needed.

Frances has a lot of interesting varieties she is growing from wintersown.org. She brought me one a few weeks ago and man that thing is beautiful. She has one that grows white tomatoes lol.. I am sure with as many as she has, she will bringing some with her as well.

And, hey.. don't be shy. I'll be more than happy to start you anything you want, that I have. I'm already growing these things so it's really not any extra trouble to sow a few extra here and there. And for what I am direct sowing, I can set aside a few seed if you like. I'm just really so excited about this coming spring and dying to have an excuse to plant whatever I can lol.

hah.. just came in from my daily afternoon yard walk and indeed, my toadlily are peeping out. My dicentra are starting to unfold their baby leaves too.

Was just thinking.. I have to thin out a few things real bad, daffodils and lambs ear specifically. I know it'll probably be a little late to enjoy daffs but they can always be planted in the fall. They have done well in this heavy soil here too along with those lambs ear.

Hi Tina,

I would love to get a couple of different tomato plants from you at the swap. What can I bring you? I'm planting a little vegetable garden at my Dad's garden this year. I would love a white tomato because I love funky looking vegetables. Do you want some luffa seeds or some funky pumpkin with wart seeds. If so, I'll send them to you. Email me your address (jdbrown@wfubmc.edu) Have a lovely day! Judy

I'll set a side a few of what I have and ask her if she has an extra white mater.

I pretty much got the veggies covered this year and possibly the annuals too. There isn't anything in particular I need or want but I do have areas from full hot sun to shade. I am going to try to move my herb garden to a more suitable location this season and creating a rock garden in it's place. So if anyone has any shallow rooted, drought tolerant perennials..

Luffa sounds interesting. Is it a novelty plant or can you eat it? lol

Hi,
I believe I was in contact with you, aezerien, a year or two ago, expressing an interest, and intent on attending, a previous Cleveland County Plant Swap. I think it was to be held at Moss Lake that year. I had been living in the SC Lowcountry at the time, but am now studying horticulture at NCSU. Before I moved to SC I had been in Shelby for 4 years. I thought, then, that I could get up to Shelby for the swap, but I was not able to get away when the time came. I mentioned, then, that I knew several people in Shelby who would attend if given enough notice. I will let them know about the event and the date, and relay back whether they feel they will be available to attend.
I will try to get to Shelby that weekend to join them. I will update as I hear from them. I know one has over 100 unknown iris rhizomes, (because I divided them and gave them to her,) that she is probably very ready to share!

I will probably be bringing MOSTLY tomato and pepper seedlings, as that is what I have that are doing well. May divide some sedum and dig up some bee balm.

I'm interested in daylilies, perennials, shade loving plants, hydrangeas, calycanthus, joe pye weed, oriental poppies, winter blooming daphne, gardenias (particularly Gardenia jasminoides 'Kleim's Hardy'). Oh, creeping phlox too!

My house was built 2 years ago and the back yard had literally nothing planted and the front only had boxwoods for the most part! I'm sure I'll find things that interest me!

jdb,
I am not sure whether you shop in Shelby, but my good friend, Sandy, is the Live Nursery Specialist at Lowe's. She and her daughter would be the two most likely to attend. I am visiting Shelby tomorrow and will tell her about the swap. She is a grower of all things green. I know she has more plants than she can handle, but is always willing to add to her collection. I'll post again when I get back to let you know what she has and might be able to swap.

Hi, just thought I would check in.
Tina, I still am hoping for the Chas.Grimaldi brug. I am also interested in some tomato and pepper plants from anyone - didn't get my seeds planted in time this year.

I have some woods filled with natives - what are you looking for Tina (and others) - have some trout lilies coming up now, different ferns, will have bloodroot, mayapples....

Christy - sounds good. What varieties did you grow? So far I have the typical stuff you can find at walmart and Frances gave me a special variety I think she said was from Afghanistan. She also gave me some seed for some other interesting varieties but I haven't sown those yet.

Squirrelspur - I set a small cutting in dirt back when you requested it. It is now rooted, growing new foliage, and about six inches tall. At the time I took the cutting all that plant consisted of was a tall stalk with new small stalks on it so I had to do a small cutting. I did one similar for Frances last year and it is now huge. And I mean HUGE lol. I have Early girl tomatoes that are about six inches tall but I just planted other varieties last week. The brandywine have sprouted but that is about it. And no pepper sprouts yet.

You know, tomatoes and peppers catch up real quick when it gets warm. I wouldn't think it would be too late to plant them now, if you already have the seed at least. A lot of varieties are two to three months to harvest. That would be, I think, June/July?

I have a bald patch maybe big enough for three or four plants in my shade garden. I had some things I put there that I killed the first year and I have been putting annuals in the spot for the past two years. I am ready to put some perennials in that spot and save some time in the spring lol. I am also interested in early spring flowering plants and bulbs but otherwise, I will try anything once that is not invasive or needs too much fuss. I prefer perennials and am not really interested in annuals. I usually grow any annuals and veggies that I want to plant. I have so much to take care of in the fall that I often forget to dig sensitive corms and tubers.

Unfortunately I won't have any daylilies. Most of mine are specimen plantings and planted last spring and.. I actually have fewer fans this year than I had last year. I had hoped for different. I have tons of stellas but I won't divide those until late summer. It tends to mess with the blooms when they are divided in the spring.

To that end, a lot of the things on my list are specimen plantings that may not be available right now. I made my list last summer I think and couldn't tell you if I still have all of those things.. I need to update my list when everything breaks soil and leafs out. If there is anything on that list you are interested in, please let me know so I can make sure I can have it or at least let you know when I think it'll be available.

I had to reseed all of my seedlings due to an issue that I am not even going to get into here. I made a stupid mistake while experimenting (mainly not seeding the way I know works alongside the experimental way) and well.. lol

Anyway, I have tons of new seedlings coming up so.. I have them, they will just be smaller. I am hoping since this month is a little warmer they will grow faster anyway. I have a few varieties not on the above list as well.

I have tons of rose of Sharon volunteers. Notably, I don't know what color they are. They may be purple or white. If anyone is interested let me know now because I intend on weeding them out before the swap.

Perennial/evergreen..I am thinning out my strawberries, lambs ear, and lemon balm. I can make some starts of chocolate and orange mint and oregano. I also have a palace purple heuchera that I need to move that I can take a piece off of. I may have some ostrich fern as well. I am also planning to divide the pink wood sorrel. I can break off some of that. I have several different varieties of brugs that I can take cuttings from as well. They will be small cuttings but they grow fast. Just let me know so I can go ahead and start them so they will have a root system by the swap date.

Houseplants.. I have quite a few I can take cuttings or parts from. I have arrowhead vine, wandering jew (Zebrina, the silver and purple kind), a small start of string of pearls, Several different varieties of epi and hoya, peace lily, boston fern, Chinese evergreen, another type of small leaved Tradescantia and a plain green larger leaf, Pothos, crazy bunny ear cactus, and some sansevieria.

bulbs.. white daffodil, grape hyacinth, spring starflower, snowflake, and maybe some other stuff I am not thinking of.. Ah yeah. crocus.

That may or may not be it and I still have things that I can't remember that I have sown, I have to get a pen and paper and go around the yard lol. So anyway.. I apologize for such a long post. It's been a while since I gave a real update and I am already long-winded. If I can think of anything else that I can throw in the pot I'll post it and if there is anything in particular that you want from the plants mentioned above, claim them now lol.. because I may only have one.

I have the following tomatoes: limmony, green zebra, chocolate cherry, brandywine, big white pink stripe, and maybe some roma.

Peppers are just California Wonder and a hot pepper mix.

Does anyone have solomon's seal? Half of my yard is full shade.

I just had one pepper loop up through the soil this morning so I expect within the next week to see them all. I have Anaheim, two types of jalapeno, sweet peppers, cayenne, and the California wonders. If they manage to all sprout as planned and you are interested in other varieties I can set some aside for you.

Sorry, I do have a few shade tolerant plants but the majority of my yard is either sun, part shade, or filtered sun. If by chance I come across any, I will let you know though.

I realize that we now have a conflict with the Raleigh swap. I just wanted to put it out there that while I can't change the date at this point, it isn't going to hurt my feelings if anyone decides that they would rather go to the other swap. Our swap was really only meant to be a small friendly gathering and I just thought I would see if anyone from here wanted to come since I occasionally do a little online socializing here. So.. if your interests have changed.. it's really no big deal. Maybe next time! :)

Hi, I won't be able to attend due to time needed to study for a final.
I am still interested in Tina's Chas Grimaldi brug - possible mail trade?

Karen - completely understandable. Finals can kill you if you aren't careful. We can try a mail swap although if it is okay with you, I would prefer to do it after the swap. I went an entire year without doing any maintenance to my yard so my daylight hours are limited to trying to make everything presentable and prepare for company and trying to get my vegetable garden going (obviously running behind. All we have in the ground so far are tomatoes!). If things are not perfect I'll just die lol.

Tina, that is fine, whenever you want to swap, just email me thru GW. I haven't put my tomatoes out yet as we are still getting some cold temps (upper 30s) at night.

Nope. It is today. We have guests arriving as early as 10am, lunch is at noon, games for door prizes at 1:00pm and the swap is at 2pm. You remember how to get here? We'd love to have you!

Shooting you and email with the street address and my new number..
