anything colorful

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

We have some bald cypress seedlings
Banana canna
Castor bean plant
Water plants including parrot feather and frogbit
Assorted stuff.
Not that much as we are still recovering from Ike but it's getting better. Everything from the fall trade is doing great! I'll try and remember to put in oleander cuttings next week.

Toads, tadpoles, worms. All killed off by Ike. I bought 5 lbs of worms from Decker worms in Magnolia but I'd like to have some nice fat garden worms. The red wigglers are in tubs (internet plans) and growing.

Phillipine violet (Ike victim)
Daylillies (Ike strikes again!)
Anything that tolerates lots of sun as we now have lots of sun!
Water plants for the new pond ( and someone to finish digging it! LOL!!)
Tally & Jim

I have several cigar plants to bring. Ike forced me to buy a whole house generator so I had to relocate my cigar plant. Some of the these are almost 3 feet tall. I will also bring Incense passion flower, epazote (for those of you that like to grow herbs) and other plants to be named later. Yadda out.

Sounds like Yaddas is the place to go next hurricane! I'd love a passion vine, all the ones on the island died.

Yesterday I potted up some: alstromeria

an unknown perennial that is in the mint family-gets a flower spike of pale blue/white flowers later in the year

costus gingers (small starts)

roses-from cuttings from Yadda at the fall trade-very well rooted

Does anyone want a clivia? I have a fairly large one that is now in full sun. Between Ike and having the trees trimmed we have almost no shade anymore. Very strange, I'm used to full shade and now we have full sun. If anyone wants it let me know & I'll dig it up. It will need a shady spot, blooms orange. I'm going to dig it up anyway but I'll bring it with us.

Will post more as we dig and seperate.
Tally HO!

Jennifer wants the clivia.
I also have some variegated cast iron plant I'll probably bring. We have almost no shade anymore and it was getting fried so I dug it all up. Have some plain green also.

Does anybody have any sprouted potatoes? We planted ours before the first big rain and they have most all rotted.

Yadda(8-9 TX)

I'm bringing a few cassia corymbosa (sulfur butterfly host plant) and rock rose (pavonia - the brazilian one with the white flowers and magenta throat. I'll probably have a couple of banana pups - edible bananas, but I have no idea what cultivar it is.

As usual I'm always looking for edible plants or fruiting plants and I also collect, passion flowers, and bulbs/lillies/roses/iris.

Yadda out.

Tadpoles! If I had the pond dug I'd take the bullfrog. I think he'd just jump out of the tank though. I've got parrot feather and frogbit-it survived in the pots on the upper deck.
I'll buzz by Walmart, they did have seed taters & they were sprouting, 1/2 price! I put some in the community garden just for fun.
That last rain storm here beat the garden to death! Between the 10-15" of rain, wind...
Tally HO!

Is anyone interested in any elephant ears? I'm getting ready to yank a bunch. Tally, can you save me a variegated cast iron? I'm going to be getting everything together this week. I'm sure I'll have a truckload again.

Hi All,

I think I'm bringing:
Yellow Louisiana Iris
White Butterfly Ginger
dwarf cardamom ginger
Garlic Chive

They are all free to go.

I'm only looking for named Daylily and named Japanese/Louisiana/Siberian irises at this time.
If you have any annual bedding plants, I'd love to have them also.
Please check my exchange list too.

Thank you Tami,

I guess I am finally in the right place.

After, reading the previous post,
Tally and Malmason - I have some day lilies I could dig up and bring. They are not anything fancy. One is the orange single ones that have been around forever. I dug mine from my mom's yard. The other are solid yellow. Also for Malmason, I have Swedish Ivy if you want that for a ground cover. I might still have some periwinkle too. I am not sure. I have been trying to clear it out so long. Don't know if any is left. If it is, it would just be a start, not a lot. I know I could bring you a start of the Variegated Periwinkle.

Now for the things I can bring:
I have 2 older gardening books. They are titled 10,000 Gardening Questions and it is Volumes 1 & 2

2 Baby Starfish Cactus

African Violet - The color is a little hard to describe. not exactly a light purple. Blooms have a white center.

3 baby African Violets - These are ones I rooted. The mama plant had green leaves with white in the center of each leaf. The blooms were pink.

Small Wisteria

Mexican Poinsettias

Rose bush - blooms red

Spiderwort - this is the tall one

A succulent - maybe an Agave?

Earlier this week I dug up several large Cyrnums. They make a beautiful soft pink bloom. I threw them in pots, shoveled some dirt in there and watered them. I don't know how they will look on Saturday, but think they will do fine with some TLC.

I also dug some Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow and did the same with them. They are more sensitive than the Crynums, but if they look like they will make it,I will bring them.

I need to thin out several other things but don't know if I will have time. If you want something let me know and I will do my best to get it there. These include:

*Kolanche - red
*Lilies - White don't know the type
*4 O'clocks some are yellow, some are fuchsia - unfortunately they are mixed so I can't guarantee what you would get
*Mexican Petunias - tall
*Mexican Petunias - regular both Pink & Purple
*a few tall yellow Iris (foliage gets to about 5")

I would like to have some herbs or veggies for a friend who is doing a patio container garden. I know he already has lots of tomatoes, some Spearmint and Basil. He gave me most of the stuff I brought to the Fall Swap, so I would love to return the favor.

For myself, I would like
Plants that do well with shade or filtered light.
Moss Rose or Pursalane
Cactus - not really sure what it's called. My mom had it when I was little. She called it Hens & Chicks. It had the small circular ones and tall ones too.

Thanks a bunch - looking forward to Saturday.
Karen aka historyreborn

Hi Guys,
