2009 Spring MAG Swap: Plants you WANT List


If you're new to the swaps, please take the time and have the courtesy to read these posts. They're here to help everyone have a good time.

1. Post a list of the plants you WANT on this thread, ideally with Latin names to avoid confusion, and cultivar names if they have them and you know what they are.

2. List other garden stuff such as seeds, tools, books / magazines or all things Garden that you wish to swap or receive.

3. Do NOT arrange the swap or trade on this thread, e-mail the person to arrange it.

4. READ other people's lists. If you see things you want and would like to swap or trade for, e-mail the person directly to arrange it. Do that via private e-mail by clicking on your person's name at the top of their post.

5. Do NOT post a list of plants that you have for swapping or trading on this list. There is a separate HAVE thread for this purpose.

6. Do NOT discuss who will be bringing what kind of Bavarian apple tart food to the swap. There is a separate HAVE thread for food.

7. Do UPDATE your posting here and on your member page with your Haves and Wants.

This is important:

When you bring your plants, LABEL your plants if possible. We often forget which was what by the time we get them home! Popsicle stick, plastic spoons, recycle old window blinds or other "plantable markers" are great, as they can be popped right in to the ground along with the plant.

Clearly mark & separate your "RESERVED PLANTS" (i.e., plants for which you have a pre-arranged swap).

Gentle Reminder: At the swap, please do NOT take anything that is labeled for someone else, or is NOT labeled "FREE" or "PLEASE TAKE." AskÂ.That's all you have to do.

If I have forgotten anything else, please add to this thread.

Happy Gardening!

Gradengranma needs any vegies, especially tomatoe started plants, the more unusual the better. My garden is available to anyone for cuttings or digging of sprouts, seedlings, etc. My veg garden is ready.

Hi all!
I've lost a ton thru last year's drought and my own depression-generated neglect. I know I lost at least 12 Japanese Maples and probably as many hosta :( I am digging through dead weeds that look like hay to discover what has managed to survive this last year. I am hoping to replace a few loved things that just gave up without attention. Then I lost 75% of my shade when a tornado took out two, extremely large trees... (my life!) I don't know what I'll have to trade yet, because I still don't know what's made it. I'll do my best!

crocus, preferably dark purple
Heuchera (Coral Bells) 'Vesuvius'
Heuchera (Coral Bells) 'Florist's Choice'
Heuchera (Coral Bells) 'Ebony & Ivory'
Cannas: red, orange, yellow or white
Caster Bean, preferably the purple kind
'Red Shield' Hibiscus
Yarrow 'Paprika'
Any yarrow seeds or plants anyone doesn't want (for lawn replacement!!)
Cone Flower: 'White Swan' 'Sunset' 'Sundown' 'Sunrise' 'Autumn Moon' (NONE of my Cone flowers have survived)
Rudbeckia of any sort
Hens and chicks -- I have discovered I love them.
Hellebore seedlings, but would love some of the more red t purple types.
Hyacinth 'Woodstock' or white varieties
Hollyhock of the black, red or yellow variety
Elephant Ears of any sort, but I love the black ones.

I'm sure I'll start to think of other new things as I find such new, open spaces. Thanks!

I'd like to have some Salvia "May Night" (this winter was rough on my salvias) and "Karl Foerster" grass, if anyone has some to spare.

Other perennial salvias and agastaches would be welcome too. And perennials (other than hostas and hellebores) that can take dryish afternoon shade and clay.

garden_tenderfoot(7 MD)

Hi everyone! I am a new gardener, a ÂtenderfootÂ, building some planting beds in my front, side, and back townhouse yard. I only have a few plants, so I will welcome some new ones!
I donÂt have anything to trade right now, but maybe next yearÂ.

I can bring food!

My house faces south so I have full sun almost all day, especially in the summer.

I am hoping to find the following, if anyone has any to share:

Crape myrtle
Non-Stop Begonia
Creeping phlox (dark pink or purple)
Wild Ginger
Virginia Bluebells
Wild Blue (Indigo) Phlox (Phlox divaricata)

Jerusalem Artichokes

Black Cherry Tomato

Will welcome herbs that I can cook with.
I am most interested in native plants.

I have a few lambÂs ears, columbine and yarrow, so I donÂt need those. My friend, "busyasabee" has helped me plant those.

Thanks for your help!

Would people be willing to pool some money together and try to make arrangements to have a truckload of composted manure available at the swap, if possible?

I just took inventory of my garden, and it looks like I lost my butterfly bush. Maybe I pruned it too hard last month. I don't see any growth at all, just sticks.
So, if anyone has a gallon-sized butterfly bush (purple or pink flowers), I would love to adopt it.

I can only take anything that is deer-proof, as everything else basically disappears from my garden. That's a pretty short list, but here are some I could use more of:

Monkshood (any variety)
Ferns (especially varieties other than Christmas fern, which I have lots of)
Bleeding Heart
Iris (especially any named or unusual varieties)
Perennial salvia
Virginia bluebells
Foxgloves (digitalis)

Anything else that's deer-resistant and shade-tolerant

Also, my vegetable garden is fenced off, so I might be interested in some veggie plants.
