Hi everyone,

Here is the updated food list so far.. please let me know what you would
like to bring...

David might be able to be at this swap, so if anyone would like to help me
with the food... as in heating it up, please let me know. I am in a little
bit of a bind on this.

Also, the person that has hosted the website for years unexpectantly took
his server down and didn't let me know. I now have to find someone to host
the website. He did it for free... If you know of anyone that is
reasonably priced and dependable that might be able to host the plantmeet
site, please let me know. Thanks for everything you do!

Jennifer

Glad your going to be at the swap. Last time I saw you was in Nov. It will be great seeing you again. Do you have any kind of Clerodendrums?

How come no one is posting trades?

Allen and I are still trying to figure out how we can come. But I'm sure we will. Tally, Divorced and A new man. We must talk. I have no clue as to what plants I'm bringing. This swap came on me quick. Where's David? Is he coming. I'm sure I can get Allen to go if I bribe him with a famous cookie.

I don't plan to do much trading this spring since I have been having a lot of problems with my arthritis. I do, however, want to dig up a NOID crinum, an established moonflower tree, a clump of papyrus, and a mature Arethusa rose bush. Are any of you interested in any of these? I'm not looking for anything in partcular, although I can use some ground orchids (bletilla), named daylilies and named OGRs, but I'm primarily interested in finding good homes for the aforementioned plants and don't need to have a trade in return.

By the way, Tami, did your caldwll pink rose do well for you?

Tally, I'll take the crinum to you....could you tell me a little bit of the giant yellow salvia? It sounds like something I would like. Also, if you can spare a couple of cuttings of the brazilian cloak and the red leaf hibiscus.
thanks,

Molly

Molly-you got it. I think that red leaf hibiscus is sprouting around the yard. If not I'll bring you seeds, it sprouts like a weed & that's the easiest way to propagate the thing.
The giant yellow salvia is also called forsythia salvia, I'll find the real name for you. It's HUGE. The ones in the front yard are easily over 6' tall, makes a big clump also. It died back at my friends house in Yorktown but it is coming back nicely. It blooms for me almost year round. Hummingbirds, bees & butterflies all like it.

Hi,
I drove out to Mercer for the last meet, but must have gotten there too late. Couldn't see any swappers. Do you meet in the park across the road where the playground is?

I can bring a dessert and chips.

I thought I had already missed it! What date is the swap? It has been crazy here!

Janet, my son was just saying he would like to go with me to the swap...I think he hung out with you several years ago and everyone thought he was your son...lol

Jennifer, I would love named iris or daylily and goldfish. Are you looking for anything special?

Tally, I would love the shrimp plant, Althea, Bananas-naturalized, small edible fruit, crinums-milk and wine, c. americanum and ginger. Are you looking for anything special?

We can bring a dessert and do you want a loaf of bread or two, also?

So far I know I can bring naked ladies aka belladonna amaryllis, aloe, pink sea thrift, assorted cannas, Vinca Major -varigated - trailing - 'Wojos Gem', grape-scented muscari, a few Crocosmia Masonorum, cactus (unknown - I am new to them)and more I'm sure.

Thanks!

I have some snow drop bulbs that I would like to trade for St. Joseph Lilies. I also have some Amaryllis bulds that are probably two or three years old, the flowers are red with white veins and dark maroom spots in the throats. kcbarron@classicnet.net
I am not sure what I will bring for the feast, probably a side dish, water and pepsi.

Ok David, the cookies sealed the deal! :-) I have been out digging most of the morning. No granddaughter and what a great day to dig. If anybody wants any Nandina (heavenly bamboo),Crape Myrtles or Blood Banannas let me know. I'm bringing some things but just didn't have much time. I just can't miss seeing everybody. Lord it's not like I need more plants.
Molly the Caldwell rose did great. I'm waiting until we finish the Rod Iron fence to plant it. I just potted it up for the Winter.
Jennifer I'll bring Chopped Onion and hot dogs with buns.
I'll check back later to see whats posted. Can't wait to see you all.
Jennifer I have name tags with plastic covers if you still need some.
