2012 Spring MAG Swap: Plants You Want List

Saturday May 19, 2012 from 10am to 1pm

at GardengrammaâÂÂs Gorgeous Encampment in Burtonsville (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 WANT 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, pots, magazines, books, and gnomes, that you want. Somebody else might have it and want to get rid of it!

DO read other people's lists. If you see things you have and want to arrange a trade, please e-mail the person directly via private e-mail. 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 for your Haves. That's what the MAG Spring Swap: Plants you have thread is for.

DOs and DONâÂÂTs for the SWAP:

DO wear a nametag.

DO label your motor vehicle with a big, visible label.

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 "Free" or "Please Take". (In fact, PLEASE do take plants labeled "Free or âÂÂPlease Take".)

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 unwanted plants 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, "vigorous". In a few years, you, too, will have lots of plants to trade.

Happy gardening!

sweet cherry pollinator that won't get huge?

I have in my yard what I believe is a sweet cherry tree (not sure of the variety, though if important I may be able to figure it out). However, it has no pollinator; I thought perhaps it was partly self-fertile, since my mom planted it and I can't figure out why else she wouldn't have given it a pollinator, too. However, it flowered like mad this past spring and no fruits set. If any one has a tree available that is likely to work to pollinate mine, I would be thrilled! Thanks.
