I noticed that people have been reading and responding to past NH Plant Swap messages . Guess it is time to post a new message for 2009.. Yes, we will have a swap this year.I'm planning to have the swap Sunday, June 7th. Let me know if that is a good date for everyone.You don't have to live in NH to attend. All are welcome. Will post another message later on with more particulars.

Hi Annie,

I'd love to participate in a swap and June 7th is fine with me. However, I live in the Boston area and am curious to know the part of New Hampshire where the swap will be held - I'd be making a day trip presumably. I'm also new to this and would like to know what I should expect to bring (annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables, anything?). Thanks very much.

I live right outside of Manchester NH and depending just what part of Boston you live in I would say we are 45 minutes to an hour away from you. People bring all of the things you mentioned and even shrubs and small trees. We would love to have you join us. I'll be sending out more information later.

Thanks, Annie. Manchester is almost just a "commute" from here. I look forward to seeing you and other gardeners on June 7th.

Hello Again

Just decided to check in once more with a list of what I am looking for most and what I have to offer. I need lots of hostas and day lillies for a 44 foot diameter labyrinth in my back yard. So far I will be brnging:

LIlly of the valley, red rose campions, catnip, spearmint, eqyptain onion, yellow snowdrops, chives, southernwood, oregano.
If any one wants these let me know so I will get an idea of how much to pot up and bring
I will be driving in from coastal southern maine

Hi Blake
I would love your yellow snowdrops and southernwood.
I have lots of old fashioned daylilies. My hostas are just peeping up out of the ground but probably I will be able to divide some of them for you as well.

Annie I know you have done this for a year or two anyway....Has anyone ever brought cactus? That is mainly what I have to offer, and I do not do any outdoor gardening.

Yes I have done this for at least 8 years, maybe more.One year or maybe two we did have some people bringing cactus but I think it was for outside as I took some to plant.Unfortunately they didn't survive.Why don't you post a message here and also on the discussion thread to see if anyone is interested in cactus or if they have any they might want to trade.Are you interested in any other indoor plants?

Hello Annie,

I'll be there! Always lots of fun... I'll have some different perennials. I notice folks are interested in houseplants -- I might have a few of those too.

Hope to see some new faces and the "regulars" as well!

Happy Spring,

I've started a post on the discussion side as more people seem to use that side of the New England site.
As it gets nearer to the time of the swap you may want to list there what you are looking for or what you may be bringing.
Zahzeen, please email me your address so that I can email you directions to the swap.

I am interested in the plant swap. I live in eastern MA and have an abundance of some things, although I don't know if people really want them or not. I have to trade:
*yellow raspberry bushes (Fall Gold variety--I think) they bear two crops per year.
I have a lot of wooded area in my backyard and also have:
*jack-in-the pulpit
Other plants I have extras of are:
*Spirea (not sure what variety, but has pink flowers)
*hostas (not sure of the variety, but most of mine have solid green leaves
*some purple coneflower,
* a few lupine (pink/purple/blue)
*some orange "ditch lilies"
*some Siberian irises
*some mint
*some chives
*some dusty miller
*I also have a plant which grows about 6-8 feet tall with a 3-4 inch yellow/orange flower on top of which I don't know the name of
I would like to get some idea from someone as to which plants would likely be in demand as to make sure I bring plenty. Please post a follow-up if you have any idea as to which of these plants would likely be in demand for swaps.

the 2009 NH fall plant swap is listed on the discussion side as this side seems to get little business.
