Ft Worth Spring Swap April 10 2010 Haves & Wants Thread

sylviatexas1January 26, 2010

I HAVE:

my world-famous mints:

chocolate

spearmint

peppermint

lemon mint

maybe apple mint; it got cold.

soapwort

irises, mostly historic,

don't know the names until they bloom

These are good to fill in bare spots in your sunny gardens.

hope to have rosemary;

this is the first year I've tried to root it from cuttings.

4 o'clocks, mauvey-pink

daffodils

WANTS:

I'm trying to thin out my very crowded gardens (I know, you've heard that before), so what I can really use is in the category of "other":

gloves

coffee, pref one of Folger's dark blends

lotions, especially the heavenly shea butter lotions (Wal-Mart, maybe dollar stores)

brownies or other homemade lusciousness

but if anyone has pineapple mint, I'd love to have some of that!

I might have some geraniums (or pelargoniums if you want to be exact). Other than that, I'm not quite sure what I will have. I might have some baby jade plants if all those cuttings have rooted. I won't have any roses this time, but will be in the market for some if anyone has any. Cheryl

I have probably a dozen tall orange cannas (6-8 foot tall) and probably the same number of short (2-4 foot) yellow canna with orange spots. They need a new home, I am so over them ;-)

Carrie, I will NOT miss them! I am in love with the indica type cannas and the large flowered ones just go wild and reproduce like bunnies.

Phyllis, I work weekends and can't make the swap, so maybe we can co-ordinate a meeting place around the time of the swap and you can have as many as you want. Don't forget the 'reproduces like bunnies' comment ;-)

we planted some a couple years ago (Sylvia and me) but they don't do anything and something ate Sylvia's so I guess they missed the bunny class. Once it gets a little warmer I'll get with you.

I my own self can bring you some coral colored indicas;
I just love 'em, & *they* multiply like bunnies!

Yes, something ate everything that I planted in that bed, even the cannas & the onions...

I'd love to have some of the little uns.

See how it goes?
I said I'm getting rid of things, & I don't want things, & then somebody says "small cannas"...

Phyllis says I'm obsessive;
don't listen to her.

It's a native ground Phyllis. Calyptocarpus vialis is the formal name. It grows well here in all conditions including shady dry areas and can be mown if you so desire. Mine doesn't get taller than around 6 inches.

Well, if anyone else is like me right now, maybe they just aren't sure enough about what is still alive at this point!

I am planning on bringing home-made brownies and/or choc chip cookies at least, and I will gladly trade them for anything(plant-wise)!

I am mainly interested in yellow flowering plants of any sort and herbs/veggies but I have a big yard and I am just starting out, so I'll take anything that is offered.

If anyone is interested, I also have quite a few white irises that I can bring... I don't know their official name but they are very hardy, they bloomed around Christmas last year and they seem to multiply quickly.

grandburyflowergirl, The Iris is probably cemetary iris I've got one trying to bloom now. I have yellow cannas and some yellow 4O'clocks if I can find them. I also have parsley,rosemary,garlic chives and oregano. Sylvia will be on here later and she will be beggin for those brownies and cookies just tell her you traded them all to me and I know she will be very pleased.

Ahem.

Phyllis.

Don't be a heifer.

(but she's right, I'll always take all the brownies & such I can get!)

Cemetary iris (iris albicans) bloom once in the spring;
I never have heard of them blooming as early as Christmas, but with the roller coaster weather, they may have gotten confused.

I'll post some yellow-flowering sometihngs on the "Haves & Wants" thread for you, to try to keep this thread from getting any more off-center than it already is!

It's Monday.

That's my story & I'm a'stickin' to it!

I have yellow-flowering sedum, yellow historic iris, *maybe* some partridge pea if it emerges early enough-it blooms in the heat of summer, & some daffodils.

I'll have more stuff, too, so you just bake as much as you want!

LOL Sylvia and Phillis...I will make plenty of cookies and brownies so there will be enough to go around! Everything you both listed sounds great!

I may have some Heritage Raspberries too if they make it, I wont pretend to know what I am doing but when I pulled up the vines that were spreading out of their bed, each vine had a good clump of roots so I put them straight into pots and they seem to be doing well with lots of buds.

I know I have:
John Fannick Phlox
A few hot pepper plants and tomato plants (primarily heirloom)
(I always grow too many and then have to find a home, since I refuse to dispose of them!)
Don't know what else I'll have yet, wish the weather would be more cooperative right now!

barefoot in texas That sounds like a fair trade to me. I bring you a jack in the pulpit for lunch. Thanks.

randeeki I would love to have the don juan rooted climber and some of your fragrant honeysuckle.

I have a lot of japanese maple seedlings. They were started this past fall and have quite a few I could trade.
I also started some red rocket crepe mrytle seeds. I am waiting to see if they were a success. I could bring you some if they are.

Phylis, I sure would like have one of your pink lilies. It's so pretty. Could I please have one of your shasta daisies?

I do have some gardenias that I could get cuttings off of for you. You will have to direct me in how to do it.

I think I will have a rooted knockout rose to trade and 2 persian buttercups if anyone is interested.

I'll be glad to bring you some bamboo & some Orange Kwanzo daylilies for surprise lilies and/or brownies.

Brenda, I have your name on a chocolate mint.

Joyce, if you have enough Japanese maple seedlings, I'd love to have some.
I have you down for 3 mints & a bucket of rose cuttings.

granburyflowergirl, I have you down for yellow sedum, historic yellow iris, daffs, & partridge pea if it emerges in time (it's a hot-weather plant) in return for brownies.

& if you're a non-baking person who doesn't have plants to trade, I'll swap for any dark-roast Folger's coffee or some such (one year Debbie brought me dog food!).

Randee, I have a lot of schoolhouse lilies, the red ones that bloom in autumn; they're about 15" maybe, & they bloom after the foliage emerges.

The surprise lilies that I was thinking of are lycoris squamigera, which bloom before their foliage appears.

I *loooove* them.

If your plants are lycoris squamigera, bring me a few/several/bushels (I never heard of a red-toned one, sounds gorgeous);
if they're schoolhouse lilies, although I love those, too, I already have a bunch of them, so save those to trade with someone else.

Cheryl,
Well, *there* you are!
been wondering when you'd pop in...

I will have to start hoarding jokes for you.

Let me know if you want something else that I can bring.

Attention traders:
I googled the Dreamweaver rose, & it's a gorgeous pink climber; the flowers remind me of petticoats.

Spider lilies I love, too!

A 6" pecan tree isn't very big, no, but pecan trees have such long tap roots that it's very hard to get the whole root if you try to transplant one that's much bigger...

I'd go ahead & get the small tree & keep a tomato cage around it until it's big enough to defend itself.

I saw some tomato cages the other day that were all kinds of bright colors, & that seems like a good idea, too;
you'd be less likely to run over a tomato cage if it were bright pink or lime green or electric blue!

Randi, I confess that the Dreamweaver is a beautiful pink climber, but the reason I'm letting it go is because it wouldn't climb. It's been in a pot all winter and I'm hoping that it will have a change of heart in a new location. The tallest it ever got for me was about 4'. It bloomed profusely all summer except for in the very hottest weather, so if you don't have your little heart set on a rambler she won't disappoint. She's a good size and never had trouble with BS or PM. Cheryl

randi, you read my mind!

I had a pineapple mint one year, moved it around to try to get it in a happy mood, finally lost it.

I *love* that stuff.

beauswatch, I never have grown any maple before, so I'm happy to get 2 or 3 chances!

bloomingirl, good to "see" you again!
I think I'll have some variegated aucuba;
it's a nice evergreen&everbrightyellow shade plant;
all you have to do is water it reasonably, mulch it against heat & cold, & throw a sheet over it in freezing weather.

Phyllis - of course you get a dog this year. If you have an extra pink lily that would be great, if not that's okay too.

Redeeki - Yep, still want those lilies.

Cheryl - I'll have to start jotting down notes on some of my better jokes. Trade you a dog and a coke for an elephant garlic clove?

Hey Heater (bloomingirl) - been wondering when you were going to jump in. Raspberry brownies? Yummy,

Does anybody need/want dog treats? My neighbor works for a vet and keeps bringing me bags full of individually packaged Pedigree doggie treats. Happy to share. Not that my dogs aren't spoiled rotten, but I have a lot of them.

Hey folks! I'll be at the swap as well, I'm just behind on figuring out what I will be able to dig up for the swap.

I'm not really planning on pre-swaps, unless someone really needs what I have:
: some small eastern red Cedar plants
: Kerria japonica (single Japanese rose - definitely a thug)
: Winter honeysuckle (a bush honeysuckle that's very fragrant)
: some kind of small spirea - it was hiding under another plant so its form is kind of lacking right now
: American beautyberry (all different sizes)
: Carolina buckthorn (maybe one or two)
: (dis)obedient plant
: maybe a bay that was hiding in the greenhouse (gotta check the floor)

I really have to get out to the homestead with the idea of digging stuff up, but I've been limited by the lack of pots and energy...been planting too many things.

I'll be looking for shade plants - shrubs, tree seedlings, ground covers - since my sun is mostly limited and reserved for crinums, salvias, and roses :).

Wow, this is hard to keep up with!

HAVES:
brownies
raspberry vines
pecan seedlings
zinnia seeds
aloe vera

Barkingdog:
what do you mean by a "thug"? I looked up Kerria Japonica and it looks like it has beautiful yellow flowers, if that's true, I would love to have it. I don't know if I have anything you want...brownies may help with low energy ;-) and I can bring several pecan seedlings if you are interested they seem to do okay in filtered shade.

Silvia:
I have you down for brownies, if possible could you bring me a small chocolate mint instead of daffodils? I already have quite a few daffs.

Phyllis:
I am bringing you brownies and a raspberry vine. Also, I think you had originally mentioned garlic chives, can you still bring me some of those? If you have enough shasta daisies, I would love one of those instead of the rosemary as I already have a really large healthy rosemary.

Cheryl:
I would love an elephant garlic...let me know if you would be willing to trade for anything I have (see list above).

Randeeki:
I would love any heirloom tomatoes, let me know if I have anything you want(see list above).

Beauswatch:
If you haven't committed them all yet, would you trade a Japanese maple seedling and a society garlic for a couple of heritage raspberry vines?

Sfmathews:
I would like heirloom tomatoes and phlox if I have anything you want (see list above)

Thanks
Nik

Hi Nik!

By "thug" I mean if you don't keep it pruned, it will root everywhere the branches touch the ground! When I went to move it out of my bed that's in full-sun and watered regularly, I stopped counting at 40 rooted branches. It does look very nice though, and I can bring you several. I can also look to see if the double form has any offsets (it's a little better behaved as it's not in full sun). I'd love some of your white irises if you have some, or a pecan seedling, or a raspberry vine. :)

Phyllis, the Carolina buckthorn must drop seeds as I have seedlings throughout the yard. Of course, this was after I spent $20 on a one-gallon at Green Mama's, only to find that I have it native on my property. Doh! LMK if you want me to put your name on one...

BFG: Yes, lunch would be a fine trade for for hot pepper plants and/or phlox. I should be able to bring you both. Just waiting to see how many new phlox pop up.

Beauswatch: Yes, you may also have some phlox and peppers. I have no idea yet what I'm going to want, I'll have to get back to you.

GFB(Nik): If all the raspberries aren't spoken for, I sure would love one. I can bring Pholx. I have way too many tomatoes to list here, so if there are any particulars you are looking for, please ask. I'll see if I have it or something similar.
I mostly have blacks, reds, pinks, oranges/yellow, full size slicers and cherries.

Bloomingirl: I don't have Habanero but have Peter Pepper and Lemon Drop, along with a few jalapenos.

Hey Phyllis - I'm the one with the thug, not Brenda :)

I'll put aside a kerria japonica (you've got room for it) and a buckthorn. If you could pot up some snowdrops for me, and some blue sedum, that would be great!

Oh- I also have a Hall's honeysuckle (vine), the one with the yellow and white flowers. It does travel but oh the scent!

Thought I'd post it all again:

: some small eastern red Cedar plants
: Kerria japonica (single Japanese rose)
: Winter honeysuckle (a bush honeysuckle that's very fragrant)
: some kind of small spirea - it was hiding under another plant so its form is kind of lacking right now
: American beautyberry (all different sizes)
: Carolina buckthorn
: (dis)obedient plant
: a small bay tree
: Hall's honeysuckle
: Confederate rose (double pink form) - this is a rooted cutting that I'll pot up today.

So far I have promised a kerria to Nik (granburyflowergirl) and Phyllis (phyllisb2008), and a buckthorn to Phyllis, pending acceptance of my proposed trades (that sounds like legalese- sorry!)

Brenda, what would you like in exchange for lunch?

Bloomingirl, they are hot. I got the seeds from a friend, who grows them, dries them and uses them in his chili. He is a chili fanatic, he attends chili contests all over Texas. I've personally not had either pepper before, but both are probably around a medium heat. Thanks for the cookies offer, but I'd better not. I guarantee those would all be gone before I got back home (and I'm not bringing anyone else with me! ;P )

Phyllis, I don't have Chocolate cherry. I do have Black Cherry. I think the only yellow that came up for me is Lemon Boy, a hybrid. It was quite mild tasting (to me) last year. I don't know if it qualifies as low acid, however. But I think I may have an extra seedling I can bring you if you are interested.

Joyce (beauswatch), I have bad news. I checked on the bay tree today - it's still nice and green, and I thought I saw roots in the cup so I thought I'd transplant it. No roots. This little monkey has been set up to root from LONG before the fall swap (so close to a year) - I put rooting hormone on it (again) and stuck it back in the cup and bag, but I don't think it will root in time for the swap. You can still have it but it's not a fair swap.

What else can I bring you? I have a small fig that is started, and I'll have some basil transplants (lettuce leaf and Genovese), in addition to what's on my list.

I am so bummed.

Haves:

NOIDs: cuttings are from cuttings taken from Carrie few season back I think. Colors range from lite pinks, whites, and peaches.

I do have several NOIDs that may have survived our cold weather from last winter. Each one was cut back to the ground before first frost and look like they may have survied. I will dig these up for trade for something special. All brug cuttings will be cuttings without a Y's and may not bloom this year.

Adora (not sure if this is the right name) Brug cuttings.

Wants:
Indoor house plants. Low light to medium light conditions. Sweet heart plants, pathos, and other types of indoor plants

Named Brugs

Dr Seuss Brug

Daturas

Honey Suckles

Passion Vine

Shrimp Plant red or yellow

Candel Stick plant

Succulents

Milk and Wine Lily Crinum zeylanicum

Hello, I am here, though a bit late. Life and all that. I will have to spend some time going through all the haves and wants and such - just not up for it right now!

What I've Got:
salvia (mealy cup sage)
limelight artemisia
regular silver artemisia
butter and eggs wildflowers (asian toadflax - invasive but tough)
grape hyacinth
random irises running wild in the yard in great herds, like the bison of the Old West
Pots, mostly gallon sized
Will probably have other random perennials, but heck if I can think of them right now.

What I Might Have:
Light blue/purple passion flower (it's not up yet)
Dark blue columbine (only trading for something pretty cool that I don't have)
Asian jasmine and liriope, but I'm only digging up that stuff if someone asks for it.

What I Want:
Edible things
Herbs
Mints (the chickens ate all mine. They have now been exiled from the veg garden.)
Shade things
Purple, blue, pink perennials
Rain lilies
A pony

On a note that is only slightly related, do any of you gardening folk raise fiber animals? Because I recently started spinning yarn, and I would so trade plants for fiber! Long shot, but I figured hey, it's worth mentioning.

Joyce, I'm so sorry that you can't make it to the swap;
is there someone in your area who can pick up your trades & bring back the ones you're to receive?

& we have an autumn swap, too.

momfox, I was just getting ready to send out a search party!

I'll bring mints for sure, chocolate mint, spearmint, apple mint, lemon mint, maybe peppermint, although it hasn't stuck its head out of the dirt yet, & I planted about a zillion lettuces which are sprouting; if they make it to the transplant stage, I'll bring you some of those.

The dark blue columbine sounds glorious, but I don't know what I have that would be a fair trade;
I don't have any actual rain lilies, but I do have some schoolhouse lilies, soft red amaryllids that bloom in the autumn after their foliage dies back.

Also have hyacinthoides hispanica, Spanish bluebells, glorious, beautiful blue things that come up & bloom in the spring & disappear til next spring.

They like bright shade or semi-shade-
mine like their spot on the northeast side of a deciduous tree.

Mommyfox, did you hatch out a bunch of baby chicks this year? I bought 15 chicks and I had only one adult hen left from my flock of old ladies. So I tried putting 9 of the chicks with her and she adopted them right away. A few days later I tried to put the rest of them under her and she rejected them. Then three of those (Ameraucanas) chicks were attacked and killed by the hen and I think one of them was the roo. So this long sad story is to ask if by any chance you have a roo that you could part with? I would like to have another Ameraucana for the colored eggs, but any roo will do, since I really just want more chicks to build up my flock again. I only have four Ameraucanas left, 8 of the older chicks are Buff Orphingtons and one of them must be something else since she's all white. Cheryl

wonder if she rejected them because she was "protecting" the ones she'd adopted already?

maybe you could dump a whole schoolroom of 'em on her all at once & she'd never know the difference.

Yeah, that's what I should have done, but it's too late now. Once these chicks are up and start roosting at night instead of sitting under her wings she won't be as aggressive towards the others anymore. I'd like to order another buch of chicks for her to raise then and bring the flock up to about 30. All she has to do it lay one egg and start to set and then I'll swoop in during the night and slip the chicks underneath her in the nest box. She wakes up in the morning and voila! new kids, and she goes into mother hen mode for the next 12 weeks.

But hey, where is Julie anyway? I'm all broke up about losing those Ameraucanas, but not absolutely certain that I've lost my roo. I would still be in the market for another roo chick or even a big roo if she has one to spare. Cheryl

Hi! Hoping to come this year! I need to reconfirm:
1) is this still @ Trinity park? Trinity Park is big so is it in a certain part of Trinity Park?
2) does this still start around 10am?

Will be bringing some friends so I want to have all my facts straight....

Thank you in advance
Ruthie

Seamommy, I have about 80 eggs in the incubator right now. They're due to hatch April 1st, so they're sure to be goofy chickens. Though is there really any other kind? :-D The vast majority are "random chickens," a mix of all kinds of birds; their genetic coup will include cochin, silkie, turken, ameraucana, barred rock, leghorn, brown chicken, black chicken, white chicken - you get the point! I do have 10 green eggs that are a cross between Ameraucanas and Wyandottes. I'm interested in seeing what comes from them - but you know what they say about counting your chickens before they hatch. I would be happy to bring you some chicks.

Ruthie, it's now in a pavilion in the park in front of the Zoo.

From I-30, go *south* on University & turn left at Colonial toward the zoo.

Follow the road into a curving area, & when you see the ballfields on your right, take the next (immediate) right into the parking lot.

The pavilion will be right in front of you.

seems like we claim to start at 10, but there will be people there earlier & people who arrive later.

You might look over the other Ft Worth Swap threads;
I know there's one that starts "It's Official!" that explains a lot of things, & a separate one for the Door Prizes.

look forward to seeing you there!

Julie, when those green eggs hatch put a red dot on those chicks backs so you can tell them apart from all the others. Do you know how to sex them yet? What do you want in trade for a few of them? How big is your pen that you have room for 80 chicks? Where do you live? I gotta come see your set-up. Cheryl

just talked to an old gardening friend who can't make it to the swap, but he'll send irises via me in exchange for

jalapeno pepper plants
probably other kinds of peppers
& slicing tomato plants (rather than cherry or salad tomatoes)

Since I'll have boucoups of extra stuff, I'll be happy to bring you something in exchange for peppers & tomatoes for him.

Thanks!

(He has acreage, will be able to use lots of garden plants)

Cheryl,
I have room for 80 chicks because they go really fast! Last time it took me 4 days to sell through 77 chicks. It's very basic - the incubator and a couple of brooders made from cardboard boxes. The green-egged chicks I will definitely be putting a dot on! Thanks for the tip. I'm going to sell those for $5 a piece; the last time I had some green-eggers, I had a LOT of people interested. This time, I'll be keeping most of them. But if you want a few chicks from the brown eggs, you're welcome to them. Another GardenWeb member very kindly gave me the incubator for free, so I'll consider this a GardenWeb pay-it-forward.

Susan, I have a rooted fig cutting that was going to be Joyce's, but she isn't able to make the swap so it will be yours. (I'll check it tomorrow to make sure it handled the snow okay...)

It's okay, Susan - fig trees are easy to start; I can do another for Joyce for the next swap.

Update.

Haves:
I did some spring cleaning and I came across some wooden Trellis scrap. These vary in size from small to medium size (need an SUV to haul away). If interested contact me via email for a trade. Some of these I can carry to the swap. but the larger ones you will have to pick up.

NOIDs: cuttings are from cuttings taken from Carrie few season back I think. Colors range from lite pinks, whites, and peaches.

I do have several NOIDs that may have survived our cold weather from last winter. Each one was cut back to the ground before first frost and look like they may have survied. I will dig these up for trade for something special. All brug cuttings will be cuttings without a Y's and may not bloom this year.

Adora (not sure if this is the right name) Brug cuttings.

Wants:
Indoor house plants. Low light to medium light conditions. Sweet heart plants, pathos, and other types of indoor plants

Named Brugs
Dr Seuss Brug
Daturas
Honey Suckles
Passion Vine
Shrimp Plant red or yellow
Candel Stick plant
Succulents
Sedums
Milk and Wine Lily Crinum zeylanicum
Turk's caps
Esperanza also know as Yellow Bells, Hardy Yellow Trumpet, Trumpet-flower, Yellow Elder
Texas Star Hibiscus
Hardy Hibiscus

Please send me an email if interested in a trade...

Is anyone interested in any elderberries? I have some that I'm pulling up from my front/side yard and can stick in a bucket so they stay alive till the swap. I don't have pots large enough for them, nor soil enough to fill the pots, but they do well going from ground to buckets to ground.

Just LMK if you want some ... their flowers are really pretty as a backdrop, and if you don't mess with the berries the birds will thank you..
