I can't keep my brugs anymore - who can I give them to?

rialiraSeptember 1, 2010

I've been putting off this post for a long time in hopes circumstances would change, but it's not looking likely. I'm going to end up having to move in some pretty ugly and undesirable circumstances at the end of this season, and I've got a number of brugs of different sizes that need re-homing. I live in central Connecticut (06037) and I'm really hoping a local enthusiast can come take them and give them a loving home. among them are:

desiree, double/triple orange (just under six feet tall, multiple trunks)

adora, single white (six feet tall, single trunk, kind of crooked)

durazno, double peach (single trunk, seven-ish feet tall)

super nova, HUGE single white (six feet tall)

unidentified GIANT single white, could be super nova (five feet tall, huge trunk)

unidentified double white (three feet tall)

unidentified ?? (three feet tall)

and a bunch of other small rooted cuttings about a foot tall or under of the same varieties.

I'll also be massively cutting back the small handful of brugs I'm keeping (just the trunks probably), so I'm going to have massive amounts of cuttings of temple goddess, xena, versicolor peach, miss caylie, and possibly tiara.

I'm impossibly disappointed to have to be doing this, but I don't really have any other options at this point. if anyone has any advice for me, I'm all ears, heh.

thanks for reading! I hope someone can give these a loving home.

Hi Rialira-
I am so sorry for you that your circumstances have turned ugly. I know what tough times are, hang in there, God will help you! I would be interested in your rooted cuttings from your large plants, for postage if you're interested. I'd also be intested in Temple Goddess and Miss Caylie. Your brug babies will certainly have a loving home with me! All of my 12 gardens are devoted to them. Hope things start turning around for you-
Big Hugs~

Sorry to hear about your impending move. Hope your circumstances change soon. Is there a CT or maybe a NE gardening forum? If so you could post there to find someone local that's interested. Good luck.

So sorry, Rialira, that you can't take all your brugs with you. Have you posted on the New England forum? Someone (s) there might be close enough to drive over/down/up to pick up some.

Glad to that you are still able to take some of your favorites.

I will keep you in my thoughts and send calming vibes your way.

Rialira,
Only God has control of these situations, some day you will be all the better for this rough time.
I would love to have some colors, doubles or just about anything. I have peach/apricot and white. I am just starting this year. I will be glad to pay postage.
Keep your head up, I will pray for you.
When you get established, I will send you cuttings off mine.

sorry I haven't had a chance to reply to everyone! I haven't forgotten this thread though :P

I might have a temporary place for most of my bigger brugs, but the smaller ones still have to go simply because there are too many, and I'll still have a crap ton of cuttings. I'll refer back to this page when it comes time in a few weeks to cut.

in the meantime, would anyone be interested in well rooted NOIDs? they're all two to three feet tall. I have one that was given to me as a double white, two pink ones, and one or two that I'm not sure of. shipping's going to be kind of ugly on them, but they're well rooted healthy plants with a good start already.

I'll try to remember to check this page frequently :)
