wanted: june '08 wny plant swap: whacha bringing/whacha want?

garden_frog(Z6 Western NY)March 29, 2008

Sorry for the spelling on the subject line...it's all I could fit!

Anyhow, so for people attending the June 1st WNY Plant swap...what are you bringing? What are you hoping to get??

Here's where you can post your haves and wants. This is a great place to set up prearranged trades!

I'll be back later with my haves since I really don't know what made it through the winter yet.

Hi Tara, Good to hear from you again. I will be at the swap. Since I have been having back problems lately I will be downsizing my roses. Is it just our area or have the deer been a real pain in the neck this winter? I looked in our field next door a few weeks back and saw about 20 just looking at my westhighland terrier barking at them- they never moved! They have eaten my arborvitae half way up, and I see tracks all over the yard in the snow.
Hopefully I have some roses left in the Spring.
See you in June with a dessert.

Hi Folks,
I have never been to one of these swaps. Where is it held?

What kind of stuff do people bring, seeds, plants, cuttings or all of the above?

I would LOVE to get some black bamboo, even though it isn't really hardy in my zone.

Thanks for any info you can give me

Does anyone have any bridal veil spirea? I'm considering using it on my fence row. Does it root easily or does it have to be layered?

The tomato seedlings are behaving themselves so far. I'm trying 6 different heirlooms from those I've tried before.

Hey Tara
Are there any updates on the swap yet? If so I must be missing them. We are still on for June 1st right?

OK, I believe I've caught up on my outstanding emails, so if you haven't heard from me, then I may not have received your email. Here's the people I have signed up thus far...

So if your name isn't on that list and you'd like to attend or you have a ??? next to your name please contact me ASAP!

Sorry again for my slow response to everyone. It's been a crazy spring. I'll be getting back to everyone right away though now!

I'll be back shortly with what I'm bringing/what I'm looking for

OK, here's what I hope to bring to the swap this year... I feel like I don't have much because most of my plants are small due to the move.

A few iris varieties
A small division or two of Cranesbill Karmina
Lupine (Winter sowed)
Snapdragons (wintersowed)
Foxgloves (wintersowed)
Variegated Vinca
Lemon Balm
Snow on the Mountain
Black Eyed susan
Obedient Plant (I think it's white)
Crazy Daisy?

And two plants I'm not sure what they are...

The first one is a fuzzy sort of leaf like lambs ear...

The second is a groundcover that's flowering now...

If anyone knows what they are, I'd love to know!

I may also have some bleeding hearts, some sweet woodruff and a few other assorted things from my moms gardens providing I get time to go over there and dig a few things up!

As for what I'm looking for...well, I'm not too picky, especially now being in the new house. Of course I always love some new iris varieties, peonies would be nice, hardy geraniums, baptisa, delphiniums. Anything really though. Most of the stuff I moved made it, but I've got lots of space to fill!

Hi Tara,
Glad to know you are up to doing all of this! : )
Your white flowered perennial is Iberis(Candytuft).
Does the other plant's foliage have a scent? It looks like Sage.
I have a good sized baptisia in a pot that I can bring for you.

I'm bringing quite a few unusual seedlings I winter sowed. I don't have most of them listed.

The fuzzy plant that looks like lamb's ears, may be Lychnis (catch fly)
If it flowers in mid-summer and has sightly sticky flowers, then it is probably some variety of Lychnis.

Hi All,
If anyone has interesting herbs or other edibles, please bring them for Hilde.
Anyone with woods have Thimbleberry growing?

Don't have thimbleberry but could probably dig up some wild black raspberries if anyone is interested.

Remy, would Hilde be interested in any jerusalem artichoke or perennial onions?

I don't know about the jerusalem artichoke, they get so big, but perennials onions probably.

Thanks so much!

Remy, thanks for the ID on the second plant! That's definitely what it is. And the first one isn't sage...it's lambs ear. I was looking through pics and I realized that it's not like lambs ear! It IS lambs ear. hahahaha And thanks! Can't wait for the baptisa!! Also, if you talk to Hilde, let her know I've got a basil for her...it's a mound forming basil, I need to look up the name again! Anyhow, I grew them from seed and started them late, so they are small but I'll be happy to give her one!

Kathy, I wouldn't say no to a few Cannas!!!

Jerry, thanks for the possible ID! I think I actually do have lambs ear! I'm so silly!

Rosalinda, I wouldn't mind 1 of the white toadflax. I have a dark purple/maroon dwarf iris if you are interested. It's definitely not a true black, but it's fairly dark. Here's a pic...

I also have several different variegated iris varieties but I don't think any of them are ready for division yet. I'll double check though.

Well, looks like the weather Sunday is going to be nice! We actually have shade here in the back of the house so it should be a bit cooler than usual!! Unfortunately due to the forecasted rain on Saturday though, we may have to get creative parking wise so as not to create ruts in the lawn. When you get here, just pull up the the front of the house to unload and then I'll instruct you where to park after you've unloaded.

Hello All,
I am new to NY, so I have lots of questions and flower beds that need taming. Please tell me if you see interesting plants on my list so I know what to bring. Can bring Contorted willow, lemon grass seeds, early purple sprouting broccoli seeds, paper seed saving envelopes.
The flowerbeds at this house are mostly shade so suggestions are welcome, just no more hostas, please!
Can I bring things to see if anyone can ID them? I have mystery plants I don't know whether they are weeds or what.
I would like some Jerusalem artichokes, lunaria seeds, alyssum, Harlequin marigold and Lily of the Valley.

Here is a link that might be useful: My List

Rosalinda, I forgot...if you have any of the rooted corkscrew willows left, one of those would be awesome too!

And Tauna, I've had my eye on a dark purple lilac so if you've got one, I'd love it!

And I happened to remember when I was out in the yard yesterday...does anyone have any verbascum? I prefer the purple or the southern charm varieties, but any others would be fine too. I thought I brought my southern charm from the old house but I didn't see it when I was out mulching last weekend so I don't know if I left it or if it was one of the few that didn't make it.

I will dig the lilac today for you; could you part with some bleeding heart?

Remy, I have 8 acres of conservation land, but I don't know what thimbleberry looks like. There are several cane berries growing out there but I cannot say exactly what they are.

Is anyone coming from Northtowns, by Niagara Falls who would care to carpool? I have plenty of room and would love the company.

Tauna, the bleeding hearts come from my moms garden. I'll see if I have time to make a trip out there (she's in Pendleton actually) on Saturday before the swap to get you one. I never did make it out there last weekend like I'd hoped. Or I might be able to have Penny or Glen swing in and pick it up since they both live near her. I'll do my best to get you one in time for the swap!

Tauna, I just noticed you asked if you can bring plants for ID purposes. Definitely. You can bring pictures of them or the plants themselves and the people here will be great help!

I didn't make it out to Pendleton to get the bleeding heart but I'm in the process of checking with a few of the people out that way to see if anyone can swing in to pick it up on there way here. If not, I can always get it to you a bit later in the summer on my next trip out there.

Tara - ok one Linaria and one corkscrew coming and yes I would love a dark red dwarf Iris

Remy - perennial onions ( for Hilde?)

Tauna - will bring you Jerusalem artichoke, and I tried to dig up some white bleeding heart for you, but it didn't work too well - I will bring what I got though, maybe it will root.

Gottagarden - linaria

The rain clouds just blew off so I had best get out and get the rest of this stuff.

I managed to get everything completed before the big storm hit - wow that was a scary one (though not as bad as the tornado we had last June!). fortunately other than a few small branches ripped off the corkscrew willow, and some of the plants I have prepped for tomorrow a little battered, no real damage done.

See you all tomorrow!
