Since the only seeds I've ever sown were winter sowed. I'm trying to get ready for the Mercer swap to get things going now to have some plants ready by Oct but I'm kinda confused.
When it says germ 2-3 weeks "warm" does that mean I can sow them outside now?

And when it says germ 2-3 weeks at 70 deg, Does that mean I can sow them inside?

Thanks Janet

Hi! I'm looking for hibiscus, a rosemary bush, lillies, and that's about it. I'm sure I'll add when I think about it later.

I have aloe vera and am rooting confederate jasmine (white fragrant blooms) right now...I don't have much..I'm a newbie to this and enjoyed the Mercer Swap so much--nothing can hold me back...not even crutches again!

I'm really into container gardening, however, I just took over my mother's flower beds and would like to add some roses, the hibiscus, and lillies...and anything purple...She loves purple!

Ok bad news I am not going to be able to make it I didnt look at the date very well, my sons birthday is the 28th and we will be having his party on the 29th. I will be at the other swaps in galveston co and the fort bend co earlier in the month. So if you wanted something for me let me know if you wil attend them. Tally would still like to get some of those plants. I will see you all in the spring. Thanks Shannan

Dragonfli-I'm going to the Galveston swap so I'll bring you them there. You COULD have the party at Mercer, what kind of gardener are you? I told the Krewe that if they did the brisket sale that weekend-I do the plant sale-they would NOT have me. LOL!
Promised all the peanut butter trees, I'll see if I can go dig up some more babies before the trade.
patio_garden_girl, how will we know you without crutches??? I have crinums and hymenocallis if you want some. Ditch lilies and spider lilies.
Vossner-I think I even know which one of the plumeria is yellow! Really it is white with yellow center but called yellow.
Tally HO!

Well, I also have aloe vera plants that I would love to trade. Anybody interested? I will also have a dallas red lantana plant to trade. My jasmine clippings didn't do well at all...of course, i found out I'm suppose to try and root them in the cool fall, so I will try that again in a few months. Maybe I'll have some for the spring swap.

Tally--My plumerias are doing fabulous! Thanks so much...ditch lillies--are they purple?? I would love them!

I'm also looking for another blackberry vine to put in my hanging basket. My mother had her flowerbeds cleared out before I could go back and get some more.

I do have some wandering jews, if anyone is interested? I'm trying to get them going to put in mom's flower bed, but I'm willing to share!

Again, I don't have much...I'm a newbie at all this, but I just love my new patio container garden! I have my jasmine, garlic chives and onion chives (anybody interested, I'll share!), aloe vera, and my blackberry vine!

Good Gardening to ALL!

Well, due to Rita I lost some of the cuttings, haven't put in oleanders yet-I'll bring cuttings of the variegated, just got in the Brazilian flag cuttings-I'll bring some unrooted ones of those too.
Still trying to dig out the garden from all the leaves, the trees are all stripped bare.
David, I got you a BUNCH of crinums-may be JC Hardee, the clump is in the front & needs to gogogo, I'll dig the gingers the week of the trade, and I have a great dwarf banana pup for you, trying to keep it small enough for the van-dwarf cavendish, I'm not sure of any of the other nanners-Rita was brutal to them. Got ya a bunch of plumeria too. You know I'll trade for cookies-put down the cookies and step back, this means you Jennifer and Clay!
PLUS all my avocadoes blew out of the tree and all the pecans.
My peanut butter tree lost all it's leaves but the babies look great! Go figure, mine was on the south side, protected, they were on the west side and no protection!
Also have blue agave-tequilla plants grown from root cuttings.
I'm bringing bar-b-que sauce, Pepsi, Ozarka and whatever else Jennifer tells me to.
Shannon-I'm still going to try and make the Galveston Co. swap but Rita has put a hurt on me, between the evacuation, trying to get everything put up, cleaned up, I've neglected my trading duties!
Tally HO!
