NEW: New Perennial Trade Group!

abitodd(z8 MS)April 5, 2007

This is a new Perennial Swap Group. Looking for others that would like a safe place to trade. This will be a group that will go on past the first swap. This will be a place to join in on many swaps through the future. If you have ever been burnt in a trade this is a place you will enjoy. If we have traded before please feel free to join in. If we have not traded before, please feel free to join in as long as you are willing to provide references of past trades. As several join I will most likely ask several of you to hold a position within this group so that the members will have a safe and fun place to trade. We will trade Hostas, Daylilies, bulbs, Cannas, ect... We will also trade non-plant type things from time to time and through the cold months when trading plants is out of the question. So if you are interested in a safe place to trade come join us and be on the ground floor of some great trading and lots of fun and friendship.

I'd love to be a part of the group as well. I've participated in several round robins/swaps on this forum and currently am in the ongoing Garden Circle Swap. I will be doing lots of digging and dividing in the coming weeks, so this is a great time to trade plants :-)

Anita and Betty so glad to have you.

Also glad to have the rest of you. I will be sending out a form for each of you to fill out in the next week or so. This will be a form that will be kept up with so that we will all have a place to get ideas on specail trades. Please be looking for the form. If your email address is not on your GW trade page please email me directly with it so that i can send out the form to you. I will be stopping membership at a number yet to be determined. Trying to figure out a good round number to have as a starting point for the group. I will announce it within the form that is sent out. I will need your email address to send you the form so please get it to me in the next few days.

Thanks and looking forward to some great trades.

Deni, I would like to join in too! We've had a nasty cold snap this week (down in the teens overnight) and hoping it hasn't done too much damage to things that were coming up. Hostas will be OK and I think daylilies will recover once it warms up! Keep me posted! Do you still have my address/email? Mary S

Mary Mary Quite contrary how does your garden grow? How aweful that you and Anita are getting hit so hard again. we to are getting hit with the cold. It is suppose to be down to 32 tonight and then tomorrow night we are going down to 26 and will do that through tuesday and then it will start warming back up again. I had already put all my sweats up and had to dig some back out again this morning.

Anyway so sorry about the reference to the nursery rhyme but it just hit me this morning.

Welcome to the Perennials trade group Mary. For those of you that I know your addresses I will be sending out the questionairres so you can work on them when you get time.

The Confirmed members to the Perennials Trade Group so far are:

NYVOICES
MARY_S
BETTYBOOPS
MEGHAN_IN_MS
ABITODD

I will add to this list as I receive references and check them from the others that have asked to join.

As soon as I receive email addresses for all the others I will send out the forms to them and get more confirmed.

Glad to have all of you.

Hi Dawn, Good to see you...hope everything is going well with the little person you are carring around.

I have received a good many references with a lot of people signed up here already so I am going to do this insead of emailing each of you with a list of names.

If anyone here has any objections or has had a problem trade with anyone that has signed up here please email me and let me know.

No response will simply mean no problems.

Please continue to watch this list and if someone does sign up before I post that we are taking no more new members at this time please email me ASAP.

We are getting very close to the number I was looking for to get this group up and off the ground. I am very excited and ready to get a great spring swap started.

I have confirmed a few others and will post a complete list of all confirmed members later tonight. If your name is not on the confirmed list it only means I have not heard back from your references yet. I am only checking a few and I have spent a great deal of time reading up on older and current robins to get to know a little about those of you I have not had the pleasure of trading with yet. So far it looks like we are going to have a SUPER GREAT BUNCH HERE.

As I stated in the group info you received after the group is closed the only way a new member can get in is by having traded with a current member and that member must bring that person to the vote of the rest of the group. I want this group to be owned and run by the group. Everyone will have a say so. There are a number of things I want to get out of the way to begin with and then its off to the fun and games.

Hello Ladies,

Below you will find a list of our current members. There are currently 15 of us which means we have 5 available spots still open. 2 of which are reserved at this time. so that leaves us room for 3 new ones. If the requested info is not received back on the 2 reserved spots they will of course open. If you know of anyone that may want to join now have them post soon. There will always be room for more members but the first 20 will be the ground floor group that will get everything set up. Hopefully we will have the 20 members by the first of the week and can move forward to getting things set up and a new swap started. I will be sending out an email to the 15 of us that are current members later tonight. It will have a few questions for you to answer and additional info. Please let me know if anyone does not receive it.

Our current confirmed members are,

Hi Deni,

I would love to join this group! I have been in the Garden Circle exchange group for a couple of years and round robins with some of the girls here. Plus this will give me the incentive to get my trade page back up after it's mysterious disappearance last weekend. :( Worst case scenario, MaryS could just drive over and thwackkkk me if I mess up. lol

I am still waiting on info from the 2 below.
lisam627_ohio_z6
nightnurse1968

I need a few people to volunteer to help keep up with different things in the group. We can do this on a revolving type things say for 6 months at a time or if you would like to be the person to do it all the time that is fine too. I will put together a list of the things we need people to keep up with for the group and send it out to those of you that are willing to volunteer. I will also help to keep up with all of this just incase there is a computer crash or something else happens but I just want to be back up on some of it.

Now I am working on our first trade and I want it to be special.

I would like for each of you to think of one thing that you would love to get in your first trade box. Please post it and I will use some of the things you put down to put together the first trade.

I know some of you are still having to deal with winter and that it is possiable this trade may come before you can get out and really see what you have. For this reason and I do not want anyone to feel as though you have to sit out on the first trade we will do it like this. If you are unable to send or receive plants for the first trade please let us know when you sign up and you can send a small box to your partner with an IOU for any plants. When the weather is good and these can be sent you can send them to your partner at that time.

When thinking of things you would like to receive in your first box think of things to brighten your house and/or garden. Like windchimes(we have one person that does not want any of these so you would need to substatute this for something else in their case), signs for the garden, birdhouses...ect.

I will be sending out a list of all the completed forms as soon as I get them all back from everyone. I will also be sending out a members list with names and address's ect. I have put these togather in a Word Doc. Is there anyone that can not open a Word.doc? If so please let me know and I can cut and paste yours into email form. You will need to put these in a folder where you can find them so that you will have all this info together whenever you need it.

Ok thats all I have time for right now as i have lots of things to do.

Happy Day all,
Deni

Hi all!

What a great group of friends this is going to be! Deni, you are a gem for thinking of it. I will volunteer to help in any way I can...keeping in mind that from time to time, I travel on business but usually only for a week at a time so I may not be 'available' every day. I do take a laptop quite often while out on the road though if I need to 'check in'.

Good to see many familiar names here and looking forward to getting to know all of you! *waving to Deb, Beth and the Sassy one* ;)

Maryanne, I think my trade page "POOFED" last weekend so ours may be traveling together incognito in GW cyberspace! lol

Mariann, good to see you here too! Now I will have to opportunity to 'send' to you! :)

MaryS...QUICK...go outside!!! It's nice at the moment (45* or so and NO wind) but as we both know it's going to change by morning again. Rain/sleet/snow!!! arrrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!! That's Iowa weather for you. ALERT: Anyone seeing Spring send it to Iowa!!!

Have a great evening all!

Hey Mary,

This is a different one from the Daylily Robin. The Daylily Robin is a one time thing. Which reminds me I need to see if I ever put my haves and wants up on my GW page...lol

I have to keep coming in and resting, lol, I can tell I haven't gardened in quite awhile! I got DH to put up my trellis' that we moved from the other house. And I may get whipped for this but I planted air potatoes at each of them, I know some people don't like them, but I've planted them for several years and have had no problems with them, they make a beautiful full vine. Oh well better get back to it.

Melinda, I don't see any reason you couldn't choose anything you like, even if its not on the list already, actually I kind of 'made up my own' but....combined it from names already suggested, so I certainly wouldn't take credit for it. Hope that makes sense! lol

I went with Cross Country Garden Diva's..........

Hope I'm not over-stepping but I see no reason you can't suggest what you'd like, it may just be the "perfect" name, but please try to go ahead and do it, I'm sure Deni would like to get this rollin'.........

Beth poor Beth! I gotta go 'kidnap' you girl! I have to get you away from that terrible weather! We had bad thunderstorms last night and this morning, but they've passed on now thank goodness. Now I can put back out all my purties I went and bought yesterday. Winds were rough and didn't want them out there.

Moophase, Isn't that a song "Rainy Night in Georgia"?
The song that fits here is, This old House, "Trembles in the darkness when the lightening walks about."
It's not old but the storm keeps roaring like a freight train and just pounding the house. I'm glad I paid to have an extra row of cinder blocks put into the foundation.
I doubt that anything in the gardens will be fit to send to anyone by the time I can get to them.
Totally Yuakatini right now!!!! WaaaHHH

Hi Everyone,
Hope everyone is surviving this unusual weather! Very windy and chilly here today, blew down some of my rose bushes, stuff all over the yard....all the plants seem to be still slightly froze or in shock....my banana's and most of my annuals where hit the hardest....I think most will bounce back though.....what's really going on with this weather? I'm ready for some warmth/heat....Could somebody turn up the heat!!

Deni/Sassy....I submitted my vote. When will we know the results?

Sassy could you please email me on how to do the graphics? I've tried but it's something I must be missing. Love the kitty with the cig....I was LOL when I saw that!

Beth, I'm stickin' my tongue out with you to this weather.(this is even a bit unusal for Ga. weather this time of year.)

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GOOD DAY!

Jaye

How much more miserable can this weather get. It's been raining for about 36 hours, now it's windy and snowing.
Our septic system is backed up and one of my trellises is leaning over. Water is pouring down the hill in the back of our property and it looks like a waterfall. I had to quickly turn off my computer this morning so it wouldn't get fried with the thunder and lightning.

I had a tough time picking three names because I liked so many of them. We have a creative group here.

Excited to see what our new name will be. We will have to find a cute logo to go with our name once we know what it is. Sun is shining here today but the wind is still bad.
Hope all this bad weather leaves soon.

I would be interested in joining the group. I have lots of hostas and part-shade to shade perennials and shade ground covers. I am doing my first trade this week, although i made trades with Dave's Garden for years. Please let me know if my haves are appropriate for your trade group. Thanks. Marcia.

Just my opinion here but I don't see a need to keep the numbers even.
Chances of everyone signing up for any given month are slim.
If it ends with an odd number then just have the last three as a trio. A to B, B to C, and C to A. That will still keep accountability within the group.
One less thing to be worrying about.

Moonphase, I'm fairly new to daylilies also. I have several that are established and several more that I just got starts of last year and several starts on the way to me now...their are so many beautiful ones! I aim to try my hand at growing them from seed too. I am thankful to wonderful traders! Here are several links that might help you:

moonphase-I purchase daylilies from Oakes, Woodside and Ridaught. I ordered 5 daylilies from Oakes and they sent me 2 bonus lilies. They send at least 4 fans. I was impressed.

We are suppose to have a beautiful weekend. I'm looking forward to getting out in my gardens.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Hi all...

The sun is finally shining here in Ohio too! Wow what a great spirit lifter after all the bad weather we had!

Just to let you know, I volunteered to help Deni compile all of your information into a spreadsheet then distribute it to everyone.

Could you all email me and let me know if you have:

1. Excel
2. Microsoft Word

I prefer to create this in Excel and I promise to make it very easy for you all to use.

Thanks! - Lisa

mariann, my magnolias are in their blaaa stage. dropping all the flowers and everything's drying up all over the ground. i leave them until the last one drops -- less clean up and then put them ni the compost pile. it's such a gorgeous tree, but so darn messy. i can't believe you have a BH flowering already. mine is popping up through the ground, that's about it.

did we get a name yet?

sassy, your email about the baby gift? yes, i got it. glad you loved it. i thought of you immediately. wanted to wait unti you were settled in thenew house before sending. it's so you, isn't it? BIG HUGS

annette, i'm sure you'll get some daylilies in trade in this group, i know when we are partners, i'll be certain to send you some as i am sure others will too.

lisa, i have both programs. i love the idea that you are doing this . KUDOS to you. gotta love a spreadsheet with everything in one place!

hope everyone got to spend some time in the sun today. we had absolutely gorgeous weather.

be well

Good morning all! Hope everyone has voted and is having a beautiful day!
Now, to let everyone know how computer illiterate I am!!
Not sure if have either one of those. Never used them. I surf the net, go to garden places, material stores on here and that's about it. I don't know how to add pics, graphics, or anything else. I have ordered a book and hope that will help me learn. My computer is fairly new so should have them both, but who knows!! Would I not be able to open it when it gets sent to me?
Help!!
And it's ok to LOL at this!! As long as I have used a computer I should know more!! But just never did! I laugh at myself often also!

Melinda, don't feel alone there. I don't know either and I never open anything. Over the years I have gotten so tired of trying without success I just don't waste the time anymore.
The gift certificate that Tina sent.... I finally got opened because the wonderful lady at Bluestone just kept trying one way after another to send it to me until finally one of them work
I learned to put in photos only because a friend came for the weekend and she showed me step by step three times before I could do it. I still can't put a photo in a letter. Only as attachments. Guess I don't really care enough to learn. LOL I laugh at myself over it too.

Well, Beth, I am glad I am not the only one!!! I wish I had more time to figure it out. So many things I would like to do. Was just worried that wouldn't be able to get the file open with everyones' info on it. And the cute graphics! Were do they even find all those things?!!
Well, I'll have to figure it out eventually I suppose. Maybe my book will help-now just to find time to stay inside and do that! But it's oh so pretty outside!

earthlydelights(6 pushing 7)

melinda, on your start bar, click it. you will see a tab for PROGRAMS. highlight it and all the programs that are on your computer will list. in all likelihood, you have microsoft word. you will be able to open that.

EXCEL is a spreadsheet program. if you have MICOSOFT WORKS, there is a spreadsheet program, similar to EXCEL. EXCEL is a specific program, but I think aalot of people just calls any spreadsheet program EXCEL.

If you can surf the web, you're fine.

What you should seriously be concerned with is opening things (links) that come from unknown sources. and use a specific email for specific reasons. be careful with that, because every tom, dick and harry will get you on a list and spam the he!! out of you.

There's also a tutorial on your computer. Again, go to your START button and hit HELP and SUPPORT. You'd be surprised how much information is there - as well as on the disks that you (or whomever did so) installed your programs to begin with.

2. Some type of odd sedum or succulent(not the usuals everyone has)
3. Herb(s) of some type.(perennial)
4. A colorful flowering perennial.
5. A colorful foliage perennial.
6. Something that will tell your partner a little about you...(this can be a small bird if your a bird person, if you collect something it could be a piece of something you collect. Just some small thing that will mean something to you and to your partner. Not anything Junky.
7. Something you want to share with your partner or something off your partners want list.

For those of you that are way up there where the weather does not yet know its spring...if you can not send plants now send an IOU for the plants along with the est. date you can ship.

You have to include 1 of everything listed above or IOU's for the plants if your weather is not good yet. You can always send more things if you want. Such as, JaneDoe has on their want list 3 daylilies you have and you want to send them all three as well as 2 hostas you have and you want to send them too. You can do this and your partner will be happy. Well I would cry but that's just me...lol I would be happy though.

This trade will be our first as a group so lets try to make it a special one.

Deni, Count me in for the first petal pushers swap!
I am crossing my fingers the weather continues to be nice here, like it has been this last week! Things are really growing and rebounding from the freeze earlier! I have tulips and dafs in bloom and I thought those tulips were done-for about 2 weeks ago! My daylily leaves may be a little deformed this year but they are alive and growing!
I will have to go buy something for #2 and #3. Looking forward to the swap!
Will the new database about our questionair we filled out be done by then? I did update my gardenweb trade list, too.

Melinda, (I think) (ilovefarac) I'll be happy to email you telling you how to post pics and graphics, its very easy:)) While I'm on the subject of graphics, any of you wanting to know where to find them, just do searches for psp (paint shop pro) groups, lots of talented people in these groups will make tags for you for free, post snags, etc. And help you learn to make your own tags. Any of you wanting more info just email me, not sure if I can 'name.....names' on here. Don't want to get kicked to the curb, lol!

Congratulations Jaye & Maryanne!!!!! You go girls!!

Deni, I'm considering what to do about this month. New house, new yard, I really don't have alot to trade except a few daylilies, my hostas aren't ready to trade, my oldies I've had for years at the old house haven't come back, makes me sick. Anyway let me think on it, don't have lots to trade but girl I got a credit card!!!!!!!!!

Hi PETAL PUSHERS!!!

Hope everyone had good weather this week!
A big thanks to Ms. Patches for pulling my name!

Congrats to Maryanne too! I'm so excited to win something! Yes, I'm doin' the HAPPY DANCE!!

Weather has been much better this week. I was able to get out and put a dump truck full of mulch down....Oh my achin' back....ummm, legs, feet, arms....I even think my eyelashes hurt! LOL!!

Deni, I really want to participate in the FIRST swap but not much is up in the yard to do so, so I will have to sit the first one out to my dismay.
Are we going to number each 100 posts?
Will send list to you....be patient tho' I been busy with the homeless shelter, the yard, the grands.

Mariann, nice pics.
Sassy, you are way too funny...."don't have lots to trade but girl I got a credit card!!!!!!!!!"
Hi Anita!
Now I don't feel so bad to know that I am computer illiterate, too. Waaay too much to learn and I guess like most I just don't have the patience or the time to invest in learning all that EXTRA stuff....(smile). I have way too much fun in the gardens to be still that long!
Well off to wind down....

Jaye,

If all of you would like to number the each 100 posts that is fine with me.

I started our new forum so please look for it and begin posting there. Also I tried to come up with something as a heading for the group to go along with our logo when we have one but not really sure what to put. All of you please read it and work on it and lets get something down that sounds good before the next forum renewal.

I am getting excited about the first swap and at the same time i am sad so many of you are going to have to sit it out :( However I do understand :)~

I will see you all in the new Petal Pushers Forum.
