I could bring a clump of 1 and 2 y/o seedlings of my dark flowered Hellebores, do you need astrantia or geraniums for shade?

I'd love some angelica if it is the purple flowered one.
And maybe a piece of a Darmera.

FYI the NPA Hellebore sale is Mar 3.

Hello Jim,
I'll start looking for cedars for you. I know I have some that need to be dug up.

Dear Plantknitter,

I'd love the hellebores if it's OK to move them right now. I'll pass on the astranta and geraniums.

I'll bring you the Darmera peltata and Angelica gigas.

Dear Teresa,

I can always use cedars. Thanks.

I'll save trades for anyone, but mostly I'm bringing my divisions for the free pile as I like to roam around the swap.

Best Regards,

Jim, I would love to swap for the 'Flore Pleno' Sunflower. I have been searching this one out for some time. I will get a list together soon.

Hi Jim
Could you save some poppy and columbines for me please? I was gone for past 3 months, and my plants sure didn't like it :(

I would like the magenta cape fuchsia cuttings. I got the yellow from you last year and it rooted easily. But the magenta died; I'll try rooting it in a sunnier spot this year.

I will hold the anemone, and the crocosmia I have two bushels of corms which should be plenty to share.


I'd like any of the grasses. Thanks.


I do not think I'll bring columbines this spring, but I'll have lots of plume poppy.

Best to all,

I hope to be able to say howdy to you at this swap. I have the following things you may be interested in:

Hellebore 'Allegra's rainbow mix' - gallon size, blooming this year. I have more than one.
Bog plants - I have a variety of pitcher plants, depending on how particular you are as to cultivar. I know for sure that I have a Sarracenia 'scarlet belle' that I can divide. I have a few others as well, some without tags.

I have the following trees in pots, generally 1 gallon size, but large for the pot:

Quercus accutisima (Sawtooth oak) I have at least 2 of these
Koelruteria paniculata - golden rain tree
Theves Poplar
Kentucky Coffee Tree
Water oak

I am interested in the following from your list:

Cornus Mas
golden chain tree (if it's bigger than a 1 gallon size)
Chinese lanterns
Angelica gigas - if you have several of these, I would like to have 3 of them.

Please let me know if you are interested in the plants I have. See you Saturday.
