well all oldies and any newbies how about august 18th a sat at 11am, same place tipton, Iowa?
IF Â ??
It's kind of early, but I will come if I can.
im asking when everyone thinks it would work best any sugestions last sat of august??
I missed the swap last fall and this spring, but I was at the swap last spring. Would love to attend the swap this fall. Any day works for me. Last spring someone, and I am ashamed to say I can not remember who it was, gave me an ornamental ginger which grew beautifully. Unfortunately I let someone else overwinter it for me, and it died. I should have been more careful, but was ill and couldn't care for the plant myself. Any way, if you know who had the ginger, I would love to get another one, I promise to keep it myself and take care of it!!!
I have never done a swap before (new to garden web) but I would love to join in.
hi the swap works like this,you list wants and what you have to trade then you arrange swaps with everyone elsethats one way and you can just bring stuff to trade theres always extra, we trade for plants, garden magazines and books etc.its really alot of fun..i have tropical ginger and wild ginger?? Dessa
That sounds great, I may bring my Fiance's Mom, she lives down by brighton.
What size are the starts people normally bring?
Daylillies (big ones)
Korean Lilacs (hopefully)
Weigela - dwarf variegated (hopefully)
I will probably have more, not sure right now...
I would love to have some mock orange, but I have a blank slate to fill, so I can take pretty much anything...

I can bring you one or two Salvia Plumosa. and probably an east friesland or two.
What kind of grasses? I like grasses! Grasses are pretty! ;D)
I'm not sure if I can come, but I'll try. I have lots of malva (light and dark lavendar) and white datura--don't know whether they will transplant now or not, I think they come up from seed, not root. I will collect seed. I have a few yellow coreopsis.

Hey,you know what? The more I think about this swap,the more I think it is quite a bit too early.I know Dessa asked for suggestions for other dates. I think I told her I thought it is too early.,off forum.
People do remodeling of old beds & make new ones in the fall.This isn't fall! My beds are full of blooms & I'm not disturbing anything now. The last thing I need is plants setting out there under the tree needing once or twice daily watering.Guess the heat has got to me.I heard the forcast today & it is not going to cool off.I don't like to throw water on the plans.If you guys are happy with the pre swaps made,go for it
I have over 50 new daylilies coming
fom Etrades & orders & will have my hands full.Just my 2cents.
I can post here again wo my computer,otherwise I would have been on more. Doris
I've been putting off deciding whether to come on the 18th or not. I've been busy every weekend for several and I think I better take a rest. I would have a few things to bring if you decide to postpone until mid to late-September. My oxygen needs are really heavy in this heat.
I'll keep watch to see what's going on. Dessa, hope you didn't dig any habiscus for me yet. Ruth
Just thought I would post the weather for the next week in tipton per the weather channel
monday - 88
tuesday - 90
wednesday - 80
thursday - 84
friday - 74
fall swap has been cancelled for 18th
