Starting my garden from scratch

mrao77(TX US zone 7)May 3, 2013

Hello my dear fragrance admirers! I hope spring has brought lots of fragrant flowers for you to enjoy :)

I have shared plants with several fellow gardeners and am I am here with a request today. If you would be so kind to share your fragrants with me, please let me know. I will pay for shipping or send plants if anything that I have left interests you.

As some of you may know, my family recently went through a local move. In the last 3 months, I have had to give my plants into several friends to hold, while we put out house on the market. Unfortunately, most of my plants did not make it through. Not being gardeners some of them put out plants when day time temperature rose in March, not realizing night time still dips down. Alas, I lost my Michelias, Nyctanthes, Artabotrys and Muraya paniculata among others. I am babying my jasmines and hope they will nurse back to health.

I am devastated. Hope you can help.

Thank you,

Mrao, how horrible! Most of my fragrants are still babies - but I could offer you some of the epiphyllum oxy ... that you gave me. sadly, that was the only plant that took out of the batch that you'd mailed me. They're growing quite well - some lovely stalks growing up out of each leaf now. If this a plant you lost, I can send half back to you. Just let me know.

If you have any luck rooting trees, I could cut off a branch of my kumquat and send you that, too.

I have more non -fragrant that are in better condition for cuttings. - I have a few thanksgiving cactus, and a few streptocarpus, that wouldn't mind a leaf cutting.

I'm more than happy to send off a package - just let me know what you'd like to fill your windows with and if I have enough to send - I'll set you up with a box.
