Trading lists

big_orange_vol_October 5, 2005

Since we are only 10 days away from the Fall Swap, I thought that it might not be a bad idea for everyone to post their trading lists or at least give a hint of what you are planning to bring and what you would like in return. It might even generate some interest from the lurkers and new members. After all these years, I'm still amazed at how many folks lurk and never post. I'm even more amazed that after hearing all of us rave about the Spring and Fall Swaps, there are still tons of folks that for whatever reason haven't made the minimal effort to come. You folks just don't know what absolutely incredible fun you're missing and its all FREE!!!

Any size that dosen't require a backhoe. The post on them
early this year cost me quite a lot. Fell in love with the
things. Have made a special place for them. May have plenty
to trade in the future.

Mom and I talked it over today, and WE'RE coming whether Joe comes ot not!!! The down-side is---we'll be coming in a SMALL car, so we won't be able to haul many plants. Therefore, I'd prefer to arrange some pre-trades. Anyone interested should e-mail me.

I can bring UNROOTED cuttings from the following:

Buddleia---'Black Knight', or three different, unnamed ones

Malvaviscus drumondii---also called 'Sleepy Hibiscus' or 'Turk's Cap' hibsicus. Google it---hummingbirds LOVE it!

Flowering Almond

Assorted brugs (OF COURSE!!!*grin*)

Roses---climbers: candy-pink and dark rose-pink. Shrubs: 'Hose of Meidiland' white and scarlet.

Passifloras: e-me and ASK

Potato vines: 'Margarite', 'Ace of Spades' (VERY few!), and an unusual 'Blackie'--this one BLOOMS!!!

Coleus: nameless, but pretty

Honeysuckle (Lonicera) 'Pink Lemonade'

Thunbergia grandiflora--i.e., 'Blue Sky Vine' or 'Clock Vine' I also have some rooted ones for VERY SPECIAL trades.

Poncirus trifoliata 'Flying Dragon'. These are 6-month+ seedings, yet still pretty small. Apparently these need to be in the GROUND to grow much.

Etc. and so on. LMK if you're interested in anything!!!

Eek, I forgot two things --

I will also have cuttings of Piper nigrum. This is the actual plant used to grow black pepper! It's a tropical vine, and does well in hanging baskets. And Brandon (Barry) gave me some plants to take to the swap for him, as well. I'll make a list of them this afternoon -- stay tuned!

Well, I'd certainly like some 'Creamsickle' cuttings, and that Piper nigrum as well! And I've fallen in love with coleus this summer.

Sondra folks come from all ends of the State to attend the Middle Tennessee Plant Swap. Check out your "Info on Trading" post. I left you with the contacts for info there. We'd love to have you come and I promise you'll have a wonderful time. UT has an off week before the Bama game so there shouldn't be any conflict with coming. I can also promise that you'll leave with a car or truck loaded with new stuff. Shoot me an email tonight so that I can get you set up for Saturday if you can make it.

I'm too pooped from potting to type it all up, but below this message is a link to my Exchange page, which I'm updating as I get stuff done. The Davidson Co. Master Gardeners ALSO have a swap this week, but I'll still have a few things for this weekend, even so.

See y'all on Saturday. :-)

Hellebore seedlings -10
Caryopteris incana (Bluebeard) - 10 or more

I won't be able to make this weekend's trade/swap meet. It is too far for me to drive as I have two kids too. Also, selling a horse this weekend.
Is anyone in or near Monroe County that could do some trading afterwards? I don't have much to trade though. 4 clocks and canna seeds. Some rose bush cuttings maybe too.
Can take whatever is left over from the trade meeting too...LOL

Judith, the Kerria is single.

List additions:

Dwarf Crested Iris - 4 (each trade ~ 5)
Mystery Iris - not bearded
Mystery Bearded Iris
Blackberry Lily - 2
Climbing Hydrangea - unrooted cuttings
Penstemon - 6
Mazus reptans - 6
Angelwing Begonia (red) - 2
Echinacea purpurea - 3
Sweet Shrub - 1
Carolina Jessamine - 1
4 O'Clock 'Broken Colors' - 4
Shasta Daisy (old fashioned, not 'Becky')

The "Mystery Iris" are from a customer's garden and I haven't seen them in bloom. She's in her 80's and has been in the house since 1946, so they're probably old fashioned favorites. The one that is not bearded has rhizomes that look like Dwarf Crested Iris - they look like crawfish - but are much larger than any Dwarf Crested I've ever seen. My customer said the flowers are small and blue, so maybe that's what they are and I just have never seen any that have not been divided in years and years!.

The Penstemon, Mazus, and Echinacea were potted up yesterday and looked fine this morning, but as the day progresses, they are wilting. They've got lots of good roots, and I'm sure they'll perk back up as soon as they get over transplant shock.

I divided Shastas this morning and haven't had time to pot up the extras, so they're stuffed in a plastic bag. They may stay that way since I need to make plant labels and cook and I'm leaving for the swap tomorrow afternoon. There's enough plants for several trades, so if I don't get the Shastas in containers, I'll bring baggies.

I have no intention of bringing home anything I started out with and certainly don't intend to bring home half as many as I'm bringing! Many of you know that I started a gardening service last year, so a good many of the plants I'm bringing are divisions from customers' gardens and are give-aways - I just can't stand the thought of good stuff ending up in the trash. One of these gardens was designed by Tom Pellet, a well-known Memphis designer, who uses natives and sometimes hard-to-find plants in his designs. Not long ago I was chatting with the owner of the nursery where those plants were purchased and he told me it took them two years to locate some of them. Those of us not buying wholesale but using online mailorder nurseries and attending swaps would have been able to find them much more easily.

Cheryl, I'm going to miss you too. Don't worry, there's plenty more of these plants and some different ones to bring in the spring.
