WANTED: Prearranged Louisville Swap June 2nd 2007 trades

Chemocurl zn5b/6a Indiana(zone 5/6)April 24, 2007

I have many things to trade, and some to just share with no trade necessary.

I have lost some things, and need to do a bit of updating in my spare time (??), but would love to start getting a few things potted up, and waiting for the swap.

Please show me your have and wish list. Hopefully I can get a lot of the extras shared/traded, and find a few things of interest from my wish list, or things I don't even know I need/want yet.

Please be sure and post here, so I can best keep track of any interests, and drop me an email as well. A lot of emails via GW are (or were) going into cyberspace, so feel free to get my email addy from the form here, and to email me privately.

I look forward to meeting a lot of folks there!


Here is a link that might be useful: My list that needs some updating

Hi all. here's my wish list and my give list:
unfortunately, we just moved last June and I don't have too much to offer just yet.


Astilbe, pink, burgundy, or white
Artemesia - silver mound
Dianthus/Pinks (as my Mom calls them)
Creeping Jenny (love it!)
Tickseed moonbeam (love it! miss it!)
Sedum spurium - Dragon's Blood (love it!)
Weigela - magenta pink, or light pink (love it!)
Butterfly bush - any kind.
Lavender Augustifolia - Munstead or Grosso or Hidcote or Fred Boutin(is beautiful)
Iris - yellow bearded
Iris - siberian, purple and yellow
Lambs ear
Pussywillow - Salix caprea
Thyme, Thymus vulgaris German Winter, culinary herb
Oenothera, evening primrose - pink
Clematis paniculata
Blue eyed grass or yellow eyed grass (too cute)

Hosta - I think it is American Dream, I have about 20 or more to bring to swap.

Berberis thunbergii - deep deep red.I think it is "Rose Glow" very pretty... very thorny!

Lily-of-the-valley , soon to be dug up and divided and moved. some left over for swap.

Sedum Autumn Joy - 2 huge plants... can maybe divide. I've never worked with this succulent... not sure how to divide it without damaging it... do you know?

Hemerocallis fulva - old time orange daylily.. i have 2 - 3 for the swap.

I think that is it... I will look around some more and see if anything new is coming up in the yard... I seem to find stuff all the time. :-) see y'all june 2.

Sue, I would like to have crocosmia too ;))
I didn't see anything on your want list that I have-
I will check again when I am 'more awake' LOL!

I have Dragon's Blood Sedum- I may have lamb's ears at my Mom's house- I have purple German bearded iris- you want some of them?

My exchange page is WAY out of date- My little city cottage garden is about full- I can't think of anything I really need- I would find room for day lillies and crocosmia though :))

will check here again soon

OK, I've finally got my exchange page done. I feel like a jerk because my wants so heavily outweigh my offers. Hopefully, if we have a fall swap some of the things that I do have will have increased so I will have more to offer.

Sue, your exchange list is a smorgasboard, but I don't have the first thing on your want list except maybe the pink poppies. Let me know if you see anything that does interest you or if you'd like the poppies. I'd love to trade.

Ok, here's what I'm bringing to the swap. Not much this year, I'm afraid....

Malva Zebrina--several babies in 4" pots
Rudbeckia--several babies in 4" pots, sprouted between "Cherokee Sunset" and "Prairie Sun," so don't know who their parents are
Chocolate Morning Glory--2 small pots with 3 plants each, started from seed

Will dig if anyone wants:
Lily of the Valley (white)
Unnamed Hosta
Lambs Ear

I also have the following garden items I'll bring if anyone wants them:
3 green plastic hanging baskets
3 white plastic hanging baskets
5 6' bamboo stakes (dyed green)
Tiny ziplock bags for storing seeds
"oasis" good for cut flower arrangements
Nursery pots in various shapes & sizes

Also check my trade lists for seeds I have.

Please let me know if you see something on my list that you want me to dig or bring. I'm not going to dig things unless I have a pre-arranged home for them.

I would really love to get some daisies at the swap. Other than that, I'm keeping an open mind. We're hopefully going to be moving this summer, so I have no idea what to plan for, but will be nursing some pots for awhile, I guess.

Looking forward to the swap!

Sue, I will put your name on a Malva and a Choc MG.

I will bring an azalea for you. In advance, thanks so much for the things you are bringing me!

I planted a variegated weigelia this spring and will be happy to bring you a cutting or will try to propagate one for you. Let me know.

I'd like to try Lily of the Valley if you have plenty of it, also spiderwort. Is your liriope variegated by any chance? I have a Little Henry Itea potted up for you. Do I have anything else you would like?

I also have a Little Henry for you!

I have small amounts of these (everything planted in the past year):

Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip'
Huntington Artemesia - can bring cuttings.
Mum - Sheffield (I think)
Moonflower - 2 seedlings
Dwarf Cleomes, probably Sparkler - recently started from seed
Purple Wave Petunias - recently started from seed
Rudbeckia 'Cherokee Sunset' from seed

This is what I have already dug and saved for trades:

Jen.....the toad lily
Sue....I have one tomato plant....I think it is a cherry tomato. It came up from seed from last year. Also the DL's. My friend would love the oregano or any herbs that anyone has. The dianthus is great... I will baby them and we will see what happens.
Sharon...astible, pink and white
Wishfulthinking....I would love any wave petunias.
If I have forgotten anything....Please let me know!

I have also dug some "candy lilies", have Thalia bulbs, baby blue fescue, obedience plants, snow on the mountain. I have one large pink sedum potted up and a baby from that. I will contine digging...I should have some iris, anemone, sedum. I did save the seeds from the Hellebros this year.

Wishfulthinking: I will bring you a pot of Lily of the Valley. I will divide you some spiderwort, too. The liriope is variageted, I will bring a clump for you.

I would like a moonflower seedling, please.

Thanks Jen! It doesn't even have to be a big clump of the liriope. I just thought it would be nice to have for sort of an exclamation point in one part of the flower bed. Plus, it usually spreads so fast I can start separating it later if need be.

Marcia, I will bring some purple waves for you.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. My husband & I finally put together the cabinet we bought 6 months ago for garage storage. Wow! There is as floor in my garage. Who knew?

Wishfulthinking....you can have iris and daylilies from me. I am not sure if I will have the iris dug by then, but we can get them out real fast.
