2011 Spring MAG Swap: Plants you Have List

Saturday May 14, 2011 from 10am to 1pm

at GardengrammaâÂÂs Gorgeous Encampment (see link below)

DIRECTIONS (I know that nobody ever reads directions, including me. But please read them anyway.)


DO post a list of the plants you HAVE on this thread. Please add Latin names and cultivar names, as applicable, if you can.

DO list any other garden stuff, such as seeds, tools, magazines, books, and gnomes, that you wish to swap or give away. Somebody else might want it!

DO read other people's lists. If you see things you want, please e-mail the person directly via private e-mail to arrange the trade. To e-mail the person, click on their name at the top of their post.

DO update your lists when you think of more things you want.

DO feel free to update your member page with your Haves and Wants and to link your post here to any Plant Exchange page you may have.

DO NOT arrange trades on this thread. Please arrange them via private e-mail.

DO NOT use this thread your Wants. That's what the MAG Spring Swap: Plants you Want thread is for.

DOs and DONâÂÂTs for the SWAP:

DO mark reserved plants (i.e., plants which you already arranged a trade for) so that other people do not take them by mistake.

DO label your plants. The plant labels do not need to be fancy. Popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, etc. are fine.

DO take plants labeled âÂÂFreeâ or âÂÂPlease TakeâÂÂ. (In fact, PLEASE do take plants labeled âÂÂFree or âÂÂPlease TakeâÂÂ.)

DO ask if you are not sure whether it is ok for you to take the plants.

DO, when you leave, take home (or sneak into somebody elseâÂÂs vehicle) the plants you brought that nobody wanted.

DO NOT take anything marked "Reserved" or labeled for someone else.

DO NOT leave the plants you brought that nobody wanted for Gardengramma to have to deal with.


Answer: Yes, you can come even though you don't have any plants to trade. Your main assignment is to bring food or other items for the pot luck. (Chocolate-containing foods are strongly encouraged.) Please discuss your potluck contributions at the MAG Spring Swap Food thread, not here. Also, note that, in many cases, the reason why people are bringing these particular plants to the swap for you to take home is because the plants are, um, âÂÂvigorousâÂÂ. In a few years, you, too, will have lots of plants to trade.

Happy gardening!

Well, I didn't think I'd have anything, but upon further musing, I'm way wrong.

I have:
Ornamental grasses. Small to HUGE. Ask by size.
Northern Sea Oats in particular. (INVASIVE>
Bronze Fennel. Coming out my ears.
"Raspberry Wine" Monarda
Ditch Lilys. Hate to dig 'em 'cause they'll be blooming, but if you can't make it out, I'll bring a shovelful.
Hellabore seedlings. Contrary to popular believe, these thrive in full sun. I'm here to tell 'ya!
"Cherry bells"

Well, I'll think of more.

baptisia species - 6 second year plants

boxwood shrubs - 3 small ones

symphoricarpus alba - these run a bit so I have rooted offsets

geranium macrorrhizum "Ingwersen's Variety" - 12" clump, can split.

variegated lilac - no idea what cultivar it is. Small plant with decent roots.

salvia uliginosa - rooted offsets. This plant runs.

salvia guaranitica 'Black and Blue' - rooted offsets. This plant runs, too, but not aggressively. Often sold as an annual, but this is the fourth year in the garden for mine.

One further update - my last rooted fig cutting has been claimed! If anyone would like to try rooting their own, I would be happy to provide fresh cuttings. I've never rooted figs that way, but it sounds like a common, fairly easy, way of propagating figs. Thanks!

'Twill be a busy weekend, but I just might make it!

I have available:

Common Rue (Ruta graveolens) -- 1 ~3 year old plant in a large pot

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)* -- several

Catnip (Nepeta cataria)* -- several

Mints (Mentha spp)* -- I have at least 2 types of mint. I'll bring the runners loose in buckets

Tawny Daylily (Hemerocallis fulva)* aka ditch lily

Violets (Viola sororia(?))* -- plain blue or blue & white

Money plant (Lunaria annua)* -- actually a biennial; these are 1st year plants that will bloom with pink flowers next spring followed by flat coin-like papery seed pods.

Waterlily (Nymphaea x ) -- salmon pink blooms -- Currently I have one potted up and another offset I can detach from the mother plant.

I may be able to bring some other things, especially if anyone is interested:

Egyptian walking onions (Allium x proliferum)*

Evening Primrose (Oenothera ?) -- yellow-flowered perennial

Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia ?)* -- perennial

Butternut squash (Cucurbita moschata) -- seeds or seedlings -- saved from a local (PA) organic farmer -- will try to find out the variety, but looked like Waltham.

Tomato & pepper starts -- depends on what I have left after planting out and trading; best possibility: Thai chilis!

Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus)* -- summer-flowering shrub -- volunteer seedlings -- may bloom from whitish-pink to lavender.

Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium)* -- small daisy-like blooms -- volunteers -- may be single or double.

* Potentially Invasive

I have these for the swap:

Fig cuttings, already showing roots- celeste - cold hardy in our zone 7a Nova, mother tree (3-4 years old) didn't need any protection to over last winter, nothing cold damaged on any branch. Fruiting well and very sweet, small size (2 -2.5" diameter) fig fruit.

Chive, garlic type, the one Asian use for cooking

Common lily, yellow

Ribbon grass

Stawberry plants, already flowering now.

Planting pots, nursery type, and some very good durable ones, various sizes (from seedling pot to 3 or 5 gallon size). If you need them, let me know by 5/7 (or 5/1), the sooner the better, and what sizes you looking for. I can get them from a source for you. Otherwise, will bring whatever I have then to the swap. Will have limited # of bigger (5 gallon) pots due to size for transportation, unless pre-arranged.

Red raspberry seedlings

HAVE: embarrassing confession.

My 'Black & Blue' salvias died over the winter. Every one of them. I have a few pathetically small sprouts that are offsets of one of the plants and I will give these to the first few people who asked me for this plant. I apologize to all.

Salvia uliginosa came roaring back and I will get those to everyone who asked and will being some extras.

Unadvertised specials:

Four or five lobelia cardinalis plants - all second year from seed, blooming size, safely potted and ready to go.

Lavender. Also second year from seed and setting flowers now. Cultivar name already forgotten and probably pointless for seed-grown plants. They might be 'Lady.'

I'll bring some Iris, persicaria 'Lance Corporal' (tons of volunteers, taker beware), maybe one or two Persicaria 'Red Dragon' (still gotta check), also a maybe Persicaria 'Painter's Palette', some red monarda (probably a sport of 'Jacob Cline'), some plain hostas - green margin with white centers and also some solid green, begonia grandis - hardy begonias, tall black-eyed-susans - Rudbeckia laciniata (beware self seeds like crazy), some coleus - rooted cuttings, Lysimachia nummularia âÂÂAureaâ - Golden creeping Jenny, whatever else I can identify from the garden.
