Anyone interested in a secret swap? I was thinking at least 3 named hosta. Let me know if you are interested?
oh, let me see...lol - what a great idea. Yep, count me in.
I'll see if I can find a few extra's around here somewhere -
Pam consider yourself counted LOL.
I'd love to join in, I have serveral hostas that are available for trading right now.
I am fairly new at this and would love to swap. Just tell me what to do. Thanks!

Always Room for a Few More Hosta!
Also Hoping Daisy_me Will Probably Still Host Her Annual One Also Later in the Month...(Pretty Please...Kelli).

Helplessly hooked on Hostas
New member: Am I too late? Hostas is my favorite plant.
Is there room for one more?
I had signed up, but now need to back out of this swap.
If this swap is still open to sign up, I'd like to join. I've done several trades & a few secret swaps, but it's been a while. Just let me know - THANKS!
Is this swap closed? I've been out of the loop for a while but I'm interested in this. If this one is closed perhaps we should start another. :)
Is this different from the swap thread on the DISCUSSIONS side?
Ditto what Alexa said.
I am dropping out. Have a great swap.

You all have heard of Christmas in July?? Well, I just had Christmas in JUNE..Thank you so much Cathy,(Catbirdsue) for all the wonderful plants you sent, and the beautiful hosta card. I couldnt believe it, I will definitely be busy planting for awhile. Here is what I received:
Abiqua Drinking Gourd
Then she also included, these plants:
pink pom pom
and a begonia plant..
now you know why I said it was litle Christmas. This has been so much fun! Thank you Cathy for doing this exchange.
Well, I posted my trade on the wrong post! My trade went out yesterday....but I forgot to put a card in the box... I'll email my trader in a few days..
i know...all these trades are spinning around in my head,,,trying to keep them straight
i am waiting for 2 boxes to arrive yet
LOL, Lynne,,,it was me your box was headed for
Arrived safe and sound here today...looking VERY well
My box included 4 new to my garden and 3 on my wish list
Ginsu Knife (this one is going to be one of my top 100, LOL)
Lucy Vitols (a little beauty, will shine as well)
Neat & Tidy (looks like a big un)
Tea & Crumpets (a little cutie)
they are all getting a good soak,,,then into the ground they go
thanks lynnem for the fantabulous box
and thank you catbirdsue for making the arrangements
Jill, I'm glad you got them... Had to bend Neat and Tidy to get it in the box, I was hoping it didn't break... And I know the roots weren't huge on Tea and Crumpets.. but I think with plenty of water, it will thrive... I'd probably pot that one up first ...
And again, sorry for the slug holes... I really have to start earlier next year on the slug control..
We traded several years ago! I saw my name on some of your hosta.. my, how your list has grown since then... I was trying to get some to you that you didn't have...
Please contact me at email@example.com . I have had some problems with my laptop screen going out on me and I cannot get to my normal email. I need my partners name and address resent to the above email address. I had emailed you a couple of days ago but haven't heard back.
I would like to thank Lelan(ZZTopsoil) for a wonderful box stuffed full of hostas.
Jimmy Crack Corn
You really made my day brighter. I haven't been able to plant any yet but I did manage to get them all into pots.
I had my back go out on me last week in addition to the laptop going out on me so I am a little behind on my end. I figured out how to use my Playstation3 to get online now but cannot access any of my old emails that were downloaded into the laptop that died.
I received a wonderful box from Margie, Grannyfifty.
African Blue Basil - smells wonderful
Cupea Batface - always wanted to try one of these
A beautiful coleus
and 4 hosta
Splash - I can't find this in the hosta library. Do you know more about it?
And Yellow Splash - this one, I would love to see a picture of a more mature plant. It is totally different from
Yellow Splash in the hosta library. Is there a dark green edge to your plant. I love the ruffled edge.
Thanks so much for the lovely choices.
I received my hosta from Angel2008. She sent Hyaeinthina, Clausa, and multiple Patriots. She's a garden newbie but you wouldn't have know it by her packing. The plants arrived alive, healthy and fresh as when she sent them.
Thanks Mao, glad to hear they arrived in good shape. We had some really hot weather in WI. Just bought 4 new varieties today, so I will be in much better shape for trading next time around..:)
What a Wonderful Day it is Now...Thanks to Pam!
I Received My Secret Hosta Box Today.
It Arrived from Pam aka: twin_too.
Pam Sent Me the Following Hostas:
WOW...What a Wonderful Box it Was!
I Truly Appreciate All of these 'NEW BEAUTIES' that Will Now be in My Gardens.
Everything Arrived in Perfect Condition.
They are Getting a Long Deserved Drink Before I Pot them Up.
I Can Not Thank You Enough Pam.
You've Made Your New Hosta Friend in Oregon Very Happy!
And...Big "Thank You's" to Cathy(catbirdsue) for Hosting this Swap!
Lelan, I am so happy you are pleased with your hostas! I tried to send ones you didn't already have.
I just noticed that I posted what I received in the other hosta swap thread, so I want to again give a HUGE THANK YOU to woodthrush! She sent me 4 hostas and one heuchera that were all new to me. She must know my likes, because they are all PERFECT. I received hostas; First Mate, Teaspoon, Twilight Time, and Queen of the Seas. And, I got heuchera Dark Secret. They are all wonderful, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Glad they arrived safely and you liked everything.
And thanks to Catbirdsue for arranging another swap.
I recieved a wonderful box of hostas from Frank. They are just gorgeous!!
Thanks so very much.
I also want to thank everyone for making this such a lovely swap.
I want to thank Mao for my great package of HOSTAS!
You are so generous.
We have traded before at the Garden Swap.
Your hostas look beautiful, missed you at the Swap.
Thank you again, hostalavista
Got my hostas today!!! yayyyy..
I've got to get to job 2, so I'll post my bounty tomorrow!
I received: Heart and Soul, Bob Olson, Allegan Fog, Abby, Old glory, and Hillbilly Blues! My trader was Hostalavista, and I just have to share the note she put in the box:
" I have put my Heart and Soul into this trade. Bob Olsen said he was in an Allegan Fog and he jusy met Abby, the other day while looking at Old Glory. I am so sorry this is late, I have the Hillbilly Blues!"
Too cute! Linda, the hosta arrived in great shape, Bob Olsen, Heart and Soul and Old Glory are all new to my garden, and I want to thank you for a great trade!!
So glad you finally got your hostas,
I am such a procraste-nator!
AND I hope I don't get BARRED from future trades!
I'm so glad you got 3 new to your garden! I love the trades but don't really know what my problem was this time, I'm happy you liked them.
Was hoping the poem would help me out on saying how sorry I was for sending sooo late!
Linda, no need to apologize, I'm the one who should apologize for being impatient! So, I'm sorry too! All of my new babies are potted up until I get my new hosta garden ready. There's a burn pile in the middle of it, tried to burn this weekend, and it was still too green... hopefully by September!
you had every right to wonder where your hosta's were but I'm so glad I finally got in the groove! lol...Here's hoping they grow good for you. Hostalavista Babee, Linda
