2013 MAG Spring Swap: Plants You HAVE List

Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 10am to 1pm
at GardengrammaâÂÂs Gorgeous Encampment in Burtonsville (see link below)

KEY THINGS WE MUST DO (read carefully!):


  • 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, pots, 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 Want: 2013 MAG spring swap thread is for.

DOs and DONâÂÂTs for the SWAP:

  • DO wear a nametag (of your screen name).
    DO label your motor vehicle with a big, visible label (of your screen name).
    DO label your plants. The plant labels do not need to be fancy. Popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, or masking tape are fine.
    DO mark reserved plants (i.e., plants which you already arranged a trade for) so that other people do not take them by mistake. (It helps to put them somewhere less accessible to the general plant shopper, too.)
    DO take plants labeled âÂÂFreeâ or âÂÂPlease TakeâÂÂ. (In fact, PLEASE DO take plants labeled âÂÂFree" or âÂÂPlease TakeâÂÂ. In double fact, take many of those plants!)
    DO NOT take anything marked "Reserved" or labeled for someone else.
    DO ask if you are not sure whether it is ok for you to take certain plants.
    DO protect the plants you are taking home with you by putting them into your car so there is no confusion.
    DO, when you leave, take home (or sneak into somebody elseâÂÂs vehicle) the plants you brought that nobody wanted.
    LEAVE NO TRACE - DO NOT leave any plant leftovers for Gardengramma 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 potluck. (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 people are bringing these particular plants to the swap for you to take home is because the plants are, um, âÂÂvigorousâÂÂ. Also, we want to enable new gardeners as much as we can, so that in a few years, you will have expanded your gardens and will be bringing interesting plants to the...

OK, I'll bite.
I'll be bringing tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. Lots. All kinds.

Update: I am hardening off tomatoes and just re-potting up peppers and eggplants since I normally do not plant these out before June 1, so those two latter will *NOT* be ready to plunk into the ground.
Also, aside from veg above, I have contacted some of you about items on your want list that I had and offered to bring, but did not get any response Yea or Nay, so don't know if I should bother bringing said items.

Same with plant requests on the HAVEs--some did not return e-mail so I have no idea what is happening. Denied? Bringing? I like to close the loop.

I'll be bringing most of these:
Tomatoes, heirlooms mostly (will list types as they grow)
Daylilies, super tall (5'), marked orange-red, ditch type?
Lambs Ears,
Lilac suckers
Ajuga, noid, likely Black Chip (or other very very dark one)
Ajuga, variegated
Painters Pallet
Hosta divisions (named...)
?agastache golden jubilee?
northern sea oats
heal all (prunella vulgaris)
Monarda, looks like Jacob Cline

Added (4/7):
snowdrop anenome (white)
dianthus firewitch
golden creeping jenny
Black eyed susans
Brown eyed susans
Valarian - two types (one green, one red/plum tinged - difference more apparent when small)
hens & chicks
golden allyssum

Added (4/14):
Creeping sedum (of the Two-row type)
Grape hyacinth clumps

Added (4/21):
Garlic chives
Alliaria petiolata (garlic mustard / sauce-alone)...

Added (4/27):
Dogwood, 2 yr saplings (apx 15-24" tall), may be white kind or that pink-peach kind as both are growing on either side of the sapling patch...
Heirloom mustard greens? (several small plugs)
Heirloom brussels sprouts? (a couple small plugs)
Heirloom cabbage? (a couple small plugs)

...my biggest challenge is finding enough containers, so these will often be in "alternative pots" (cut soda bottles for smaller things, shovelfuls in grocery bags for the larger things, etc).

Will post more as we get closer, and as things pop up more obviously showing they need dividing... much more to come.

I have a fairly large cape honeysuckle (Tecomaria Capensis) and a large pink brugmansia (unknown but fragrant) if anyone wants them.

I like the honeysuckle, but it's a short-day plant and doesn't set buds until late September, so I only get to enjoy the flowers for a month or so before I cut it all the way back to overwinter downstairs. Someone with a greenhouse (or large sunny indoor spot) could get better use of it.
