Wanted: Silver Shadows

tkopari(Z4 MN)April 23, 2012

I would like to trade for some Silver Shadows cuttings, rooted or not. I have rooted Abraham Darby (Austin) and Music Maker (Buck) from last year in 4" pots (can send bareroot). I will have unrooted cuttings of the same two as well as Amazing Grace (HT Cocker 1991) and Graham Thomas (Austin) in about a month.

Thanks!

Tony

I have Silver Shadows that I would be interested in trading for Amazing Grace and Graham Thomas cuttings. I'm in z5 and the bush is really starting to leaf out now so it would probably be a month as well. Let me know

Most excellent! We've had such an early spring that mine are well leafed out also. A month should be perfect. How many cuttings of each would you want? What state are you in? If you're fairly far away from Minnesota I would want to send your cuttings in a cooler box.

Thanks for being interested in a trade!

Hi Tony,
I'm outside Chicago so depending where you are in MN. Shipping probably would be pretty quick. I have never shipped cuttings before so maybe I could be advised on that.
I would appreciate 2-3 cuttings of each if that is possible.Let me know.
I LOVE my Silver Shadows, it is gorgeous and smells wonderful!I'm surprised more people don't grow this one. I also have Distant Drums from Buck and a lovely English Legend rose called Thornbury Castle if you are interested.

We might be able to go with a padded envelope and a cold pack for that distance. I would love to get some of your other roses also, especially Thornbury Castle. I'm more inclined to send and receive 4-6 cuttings of each, if you're agreeable to that. Survival rate can be low, so it's best to improve your odds with volume so we won't have to ship twice.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks again!

Tony

Tony, that's fine regarding cutting #'s I guess we can keep in touch until roses are ready ( do we e-mail for addresses?)

Chatanooga, I will keep you in line for Silver Shadows cuttings, maybe we could do second bloom cuttings.

Okey dokey, my address is listed on my page so shoot me an email whenever you see fit. Distant Drums is also very nice if you feel it advantageous to trade that one as well.

Thanks!

t-bred,

Exchanging our addresses by email would be the way to go. It looks like you need to add your email address to your profile so that a link will come up on your member page that says "Send me an email". If you're logged in and you go to http://members.gardenweb.com/members/, you can edit your information. I don't think your email address will ever be seen by anyone else.
