WANTED: 2013 mag spring swap: want list

2013 MAG Spring Swap: Plants You WANT 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 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 (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...

Oh Oh kewl....I'm the first. Yippee.
I am going to have a garden plot this year and I would love to have vegetable seedlings, pepper plants, eggplant, squash, tomato plants, everything and any veggie starts.
I'd also love more iris as I always do.
Let me know what you want from my list of haves when I get them up in a few weeks.

I want almost anything at this point. I am starting two postage stamp gardens from scratch this year. One full sun the other full shade. I am afraid that this is going to be one of those years when I will have to take more than I can give away.

Hi guys- all I want are vinca minor- not the variegated type- too invasive. Also tomatoes, preferably old fashioned varieties and strawberries and any other very plants that you think I might like, Also any other good ground cover and water lilies in exchange for lotus. You know whatever is on my list can be dug when you are here except for water willow- very invasive-I had my whole pond totally redone because they were so bad.

I am just back from five days in the hospital and ruptured appendix. Long recovery expected, but will attend the exchange with the help of my trusty husband. As soon as I have a bit more energy I will review all the messages and then ask your indulgence to post the list I make here as I've found it is so easy to miss an email when they pour in every day. That way people will know whether I have somehow missed their particular email.

Annebert, I didn't realize that you were not getting my emails. Yes, I do want one each of the dahlias.

Thanks so much to you all for your patience. Lisa

Lisa, We need to keep this thread for only the want lists. If you would like to start a thread of trades just for you...that might do what you need. Then edit your post here to include your list and a link or prompt to that thread.

**Lists only here.**

(No discussions or arranging. You can prompt if someone does not have their email/messaging set up, but none else please.)

I could use any of the following:

Lady's mantle
Pulmonaria (any)
Brunnera (any)

Agastache 'Blue Fortune,' 'Golden Jubilee,' or other not-too-tall varieties
Dahlia, tall varieties

Open to temptation with other things, too, but bed space is limited and I'm determined to leave with fewer plants than I bring.

5/3/13: NOTE: emails via gardenweb don't seem to be reaching me, so if you've tried to contact me and heard nothing back, that's why. Please email direct at sfXmillerATumdDOTedu . (Remove the X and replace AT and DOT with appropriate characters.)

TINA asked me to start a new thread since I wanted to make sure that I had captured everyone's emails from my time in hospital. I am now facing complication 2, but my husband has offered to stand in for me, bring and collect everything, and even bring the food.

Will everyone please look at my last because there are many things I asked for, but did not receive a response on, and I do not want people to expect we've made an agreement and not get it.

Thanks, Lisa

I'm the PTA landscaping chair for my daughters elementary school. We totally revamped the gardens last year/started from scratch and while better, things are still VERY sparse. I'd take just about anything that takes full sun and isn't fussy (except daylilies). Particular wants would be:
Black Eyed Susans
Yarrow-any color, not picky
Sedum- Autumn Joy is fine
Coreopsis-any color, any kind
