digging up milkweed

Sheri_MS(z8 MS)July 22, 2005

I have a TON of milkweed (asclepias curassavica variety--spellcheck doesn't work ouside of word). This is the monarch host plant. I have let it totally overrun my butterfly garden. I need to dig a bunch of it up. I have had great success transplanting it and will move some to other spots, but I really don't need it all. Most of these are too big to mail. If anyone lives in the Jackson, MS area and would like some, please let me know. I am posting this in trades and butterfly gardens as well.

Sheri - Susan from the Butterfly forum. I guess from your e-mail you are okay?

I would love to have some of the milkweed plants. I am actually trying to start a milkweed crop/garden and have been my entire life. I would gladly take as many milkweed plants as you are willing to give. I live in Jackson off of Old Canton Road. If you can give me some of the milkweeds, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I know your post was from several years ago, but I'm desperate to find some milkweed in the Jackson area. I have a bronze fennel that has been stripped by DOZENS of Monarch caterpillars, and I don't want them to die of starvation without another food source. Please respond if you still have, or know of where I can find some milkweed.

Soo, you can order milkweed seed (Asclepias) from almost any garden catalog. It's very easy to start.
