Two notes on 'fair' Crinum trading

1. I will only have Crinums for confirmed trades. They are simply too much work to dig on a 'maybe' possibility.

2. When expectations outstrip reality, frustration is the result. In many cases I have flowering sized Crinums that I am willing to trade but I am not willing to trade something I've been growing for four or more years for one small division of a perennial that reaches maturity in a year or less after division. If this is your expectation, you will be frustrated. Now if you have a yellow flowering red yucca with the yellow flower spike intact, I will offer a mature flowering Crinum.

Momfox just asked about the date, & I now realize that the date is on one thread, & the haves & wants are on this thread.

(It's the moon, I tell ya, it's the moon, makes people crazy!)

If you click the link above, you'll get not only the date but suggestions to make the swap more enjoyable (bring a notebook, etc)

Also you might go through your garden with a notebook & add things to your lists *as you think of them*;
by the time you get back to the computer, your brain simply will not convey whatever it was thinking to your fingers.

Hey everybody!! Ruben and I will be doing lunch again. But seriously, I do not want any plants in trade. I'm having surgery on the 27th and won't have much use of right arm for quite a while. And I'd really hate to see anything just sit and die instead of being planted and given lots of loving care. So we want to do the lunch thing again just to see everyone and share a little BS.

LOL my garden has been neglected this year - forgot to mulch & have grass growing wild in it. Been away alot & hubby hasn't been good about watering so have lost lots of plants from that. I've seen 3 dead rose bushes & shudder to think about the smaller ones covered up with grass. I got a really bad batch of compost manure that was full of wild grass - lol & not the decorative kind either.
LOL DH wants to till it all up & start over - NO WAY - I have to many special plants that I jope to find under the grass.
I have no idea what I may or may not have come swap time. I will actually have a little time this coming weekend to pull grass & see whats under it.

Sylvia I will most likely bring baked goodies if I discover nothing under the grass.
I will have your brownies & will also make my Pumpkin bread & Banana bread. (I hope to find my chocolate mint under the grass)

Hey guys! I am in the midst of Life Stuff, so I'm not going to do pre-arranged trades this year. I am still going to attend, but what I have is pretty much going to depend on what I can find time to dig up! I've been working on writing and just haven't had the time to concentrate on gardening. Only so much time in a day for my obsessions!

I will also be there, but rather not do any pre-trades. We have our 2 yo grandson living with us full time and I have had little time for gardening. I also lost a couple roses this summer, one of my faves, Queen Bess, sob. I will have a variety of offerings though, maybe some garden crafty items or tools. Sylvia I haven't seen anything about the door-prize-gift-exchange-bring-one-get-one-thing. Are we going to do that again or not? I personally like that part. Cheryl

Phyllis, I have three chickens that I could part with. Two of them are "elderly" retired ladies, quite friendly but no longer producing eggs. One of them is two years old and she lays one brown egg nearly every day. All of them are a little shy, but are not agressive or mean. They have all been medicated every 6 months for worms and have been free range for all their lives. I have actually been looking for a new home for them because I plan to start out with a new flock of pullets in the Spring. Cheryl

I will have some other plants too, jsut not sure right now which ones. I have some salvias, passion vines, iris, daisies. If I get aroud to it I might dig up some hellebores (lLinten Rose) but I don't want to promise any cause Dustyn my 2 yo DGS is a full time job. Cheryl

Well I've walked both properties and here is my list:

HAVE:
: Callicarpa Americana - American Beautyberry (native to my property in east Texas)
: Clerodendrum bungei (Cashmere bouquet/Mexicali Rose)
: Kerria Japonica (Japanese rose) - some single, some double
: "Fiesta" asian jasmine - just a couple
: Passiflora foetida (Corona de Cristo, Scarlet-fruit passion flower)
: Rooted fig cuttings (rooted this spring and growing)
: Ruellia Chi-Chi (tall pink) Mexican petunias (as many as you want!)
: Obedient plant (blooming now)
: Rose cuttings (buff beauty, mermaid, seven sisters, mutablis, Mrs. Gonzales, folksinger)

WANT:
: Summer bulbs, including Hardy Amaryllis, rain lilies (except Zephyranthes Candida), Crinums
: Fall bulbs, such as fall crocus, sternbergia, etc.
: Easy care plants for east Texas high shade (e.g. hellebores, hostas)
: Salvias (I have many so looking for unusual ones that might do well here)

Carol/Msmisk - I would love to trade one of the passionflowers I have (corona de cristo) for one of your salvia oresbia if you're interested in that particular passionflower. See the link below for the plant info.

I don't mind not having pre-set trades, either - it might be more fun to be spontaneous! but DO let me know if you want rose cuttings so I can be sure to get them.

Lin, HEY!!! You're coming to this one, YEA!! It will be so great to see you again. I have quite a few hellebores and I am planning to bring a few if I can get them potted up before the swap. Don't ask me for names of specific plants though, I'm not that careful. If it looks pretty I leave it in the ground. If it spreads or propagates itself I dig some of them out to share. Cheryl

Cheryl, you and I have the same approach to gardening - if it looks good, leave it; if it spread, swap it! I look forward to seeing you again.

Oh - I also checked on my bay laurel that I started rooting in the spring, and I have three or four (or maybe five, depending on how many I want to keep :) that have roots showing through the clear cups and new growth on the top. This is from my bay tree which has been hardy here at least 10 years.

I think that I might try to come to this. Between the heat earlier this summer and me getting a full time job (just haven't found my grove yet), I don't know what is left in the garden to trade.
I'll have to get a cup of coffee and sift through the previous posts to see what is offered and needed. But, for now, here is what I think I have:

West Texas mist flower (as per the name I found on the internet somewhere--acts and looks like the other blue mist flower with different leaves. It is actually just now blooming).
I do have some seeds, but I have to go check on them to know what I have (I know red sunflowers and hollyhocks are definitely on that list--dark red hollyhocks)

That is it on the flower end of things. I'm sure I'll add more later when I "edit" my beds and move current stuff around.

As for other stuff **note Sylvia** I've just learned how to make cherry fudge. So I can bring some of that. Actually, many things cherry.

I don't know what side dish I'll bring yet and I'm more than willing to chip in on any kind of rental--just let me know what is a good amount.

can use more dwarf grape irises & whatever else you can spare, you choose; if you have more crinums that'd be great.
I have more crinums myself, just let me know if you'd like more.

serenitymoon, I posted somewhere above about the amaryllis papillio, would realllly like to have one; can bring salvia light red or hot pink, culinary sage, salvia Black & Blue , any number of iris I'm sure not blue or purple, schoolhouse lilies, coral honeysuckle, & mints: chocolate, lemon, pineapple, apple. PLMK!

msmisk I can bring you all the iris you could want, would like Canna Wyoming.

drought-tolerant perennials:
tall and/or creeping artemesia

I've got plenty of artemesia myself, but a Brazilian rock rose would be great! I'll find a nice salvia to bring you. Also, I have a little leatherleaf mahonia that is displeased with my haphazard care. It's about a foot tall. Would you trade for it with a collection of different mints in little 4" pots?

Phyllis, I haven't had much luck with hosta; do you have any tips for keeping it happy? I'll bring some B&E for you!

Phyllis, of course you can have that ole thing;
I'll trade you for, oh, I don't know, a greenhouse???
Cocker spaniel?
handyman?
pick-up truck???

Cheryl, irises can get a fungus if they stay in plastic;
you might put them in a cardboard box or paper bag or wrap them in newspaper.

Cheryl/Seamommy, the hellebores would be a fine trade for a bay laurel.

Carol/Msmisk, I have you down for Corona de Cristo, a bay laurel, and buff beauty cuttings. In addition to the salvia oresbia, I'd love to try salvia azurea.

Sylvia, will have beautyberry for sure for you (as many as you like :). I'll also try to dig up a sassafrass sapling.

Phyllis, we're set right?

I need to start my spreadsheet so I can make sure I bring everything....

Sure thing, Cheryl. The pickerel weed is doing well, and I've some of the water canna for you. I'll see what else is poking out of the small water gardens...Do you need duckweed?

Always need duckweed, and if you have any water hyacinths and water lettuce I could use them too. Got my greenhouse and I'm going to be using a tub in there to propagate the plants that the fish usually eat. I'm wondering if my pond gets too warm sometimes. I use pond plant food tabs, but have aterrible time growing these plants that most folks consider thugs. huh!

I dug up one hellebore yesterday and I have a couple more that need to be moved/swapped. I also have some passionvines, they have the blue flowers, but the vines are so long I'm not sure how to pot them up. I'll figure something out.

Good advice, Sylvia, but how many of them do YOU want? I have to thin this bed about every five years and have a terrible time finding new homes for the little guys. I'm going to take some of them to work with me today and see how many I can unload, er uh, I mean, place with deserving new owners. These iris are pure snow white ones and they have been growing and blooming in semi shade for about 9 years. Cheryl

yes, irises, especially the historic "survivors", do fine with rain only;
the last ones I rescued had been growing in full sun, hard clay, for about 40 years.
Those were the famous "backhoe irises" that bloomed while sitting in their blocks of clay!

There used to be a group that always wanted irises for the Lewisville Independent School District Outdoor Living something; acronym was LISDOLA.

anybody interested in bromeliads?

I got one at a swap about 4 years ago, & it bloomed that summer, a beautiful pink flower, but since then it hasn't bloomed...
it's just made babies!

I divided them today & put each one in its own pot;
at least 2 of them are good rooted plants.

These live outside in the shade all spring, summer, & autumn, & they have to come in for the winter.

I have an interesting question for you guys. I might have some baby chicks around the time of the swap. Do you think it would be alright to bring them too, or is that the kind of thing that goes over the line as far as what is a gardening item? I realize we might also want to avoid bringing animals to a plant event. Opinions?

Hi Ft. Worth Swappers! I am REALLY hoping to be able to come to the swap in a few weeks. I loved the one last fall and was very sorry to miss the spring event. However, I probably won't know until the last minute if I will get there. My husband was having off and on headaches, nothing major, just annoying. After I nagged him for around 2 weeks he finally went to our GP who told him to come back in another week if he was still having problems. When he went back the GP gave him a second pain prescription and mentioned that a CT scan and visit to neurologist might be a good idea. The neuro couldn't see us for several weeks and I had heck getting the CT scan scheduled. I finally convinced the CT place to fit us in one afternoon; we had about 30 min to get there, so I just grabbed my purse and we ran. When they read the CT scan they sent us directly to the Grapevine ER, where we were informed that an ambulance with ER trained EMT, whatever special crisis type staff was on the way to haul us to Medical Center of Plano where a neuro-surgeon would meet us. It sounded like they were going to be doing brain surgery immediately!! Anyway, after days in critical care, then the neuro floor we are home, but "burr hole" surgery is still possible. My husband actually has "bilateral subdural hematomas"--both fairly large according to the surgeon, probably caused by the blood thinner he has to take to avoid the blood clots (DVT and PE) he has had twice in the past. We see the surgeon again Oct 8th, if nothing awful happens before then, and will find out more about the chance of surgery then. SOOOO, I hope to be able to come to the swap, but it will totally depend on what is happening to Gerry's head drilling wise. If things seem fairly calm I will try to list things I hope to bring. I received SO many wonderful plants and seeds last year and it was just great to get to meet such a super group of people. After the 8th I'll give everyone an update and hopefully will be able to put down some sort of list. Thanks to everyone!! Debby (Chickenmom) More whining-my sweet chickie, Speckles, left us for that big grub garden in the sky on July 1st and I still miss her so much I can't believe it!! Who would have dreamed you could become so attached to a chicken?!! I am hoping for her reincarnation because I could definitely use some stress relief!!

Wow, Debbie, bless you and all yours. I've been so busy with the grandson, I had no idea what you have been going through. I hope you can make the swap just for the stress relief, and I was hoping to see you again too. Julie has chicks that she wants to bring to this swap, don't recall if she had any barred rocks, but you just might find a little companion if you are able to make it. If you can't come and she has one, I could bring it to you. And by the way, the verbena bonariensis you gave me has flourished this summer and looks fabulous next to the potting shed. I thank you so much for that.

To whoever I promised the Texas Star hibiscus, I'm sorry. I took that plant up, carefully preserving the root ball, potted it and placed it in my greenhouse. I have kept it lightly watered for the past 10 days and it has proceeded to die as dead as a hammer. Unless I can find another one (growing where I don't want it) I won't have one to trade this year. Sorry.

Great plan, Syliva, to move to the new location. I like it. Do we still need to plan for reimbursement for the site reservation?

Phyllis, I'd like to put in a bid for that permanent handyman. My DH is a nice guy who works 14 hours a day, 6 days a week. I could use a handyman around here and I'll even feed him. Don't need the cockers though, I have a collie and Australian shepherd already. And like I said DH is a nice guy, but not handy and not available. I have a yard guy who does all the mowing, edging, tree trimming and garden tilling for me. I mistakenly let DH use my chain saw three years ago and before he cut anything with it, he took it apart and apparently threw away a couple of parts because I've never been able to get it back together again. If your handyman is handier than that, I'll take him. Cheryl

Wow Debbie, good on you for pushing the medical world to get your husband some help! As mentioned above, I do have chicks, and I would be so happy for some of them to go to you! I have three chicks that are about a week and a half old now, they will be a month old at the swap. I have a blue Ameraucana and two cochin/silkie mixes, one splash and one kind of barred that has the fluffiest feet ever!

In the incubator I have a grab bag of bantams - silkies, cochins, turkens, and a few standard Ameraucanas. But you know what they say about counting those hatching chickens! I know what you mean about getting attached to a chicken; they have a lot of personality, and mine are like dogs, they're so affectionate and hilarious. I feel for you losing your favorite! So if you need some therapy chicks, drop me a line!

Cheryl, If I decide to except your bid I must warn you of his chain saw abuse. DH keeps the chain saw oiled and gassed at all times and will cut down anything he thinks is in his way including innocent plants so are you sure you want my handyman?

To whomever may be interested: Three yrs. ago I went on a rose planting spree. The first year I had beautiful roses. Then came the black spot! I have not been able to get it under control. As a result of this fungus and the drought this year my roses are in poor condition. Alas, I have given up on them... Sniff... If anyone is interested in them and thinks they may be saveable, I will give them away. I am going to dig them up one way or the other and try something else, something dummy proof. I do not remember all of the names, but I do know of 2 "Mister Lincolns" and one is a "Cryseller Imperial",I think. lol I hate to see them go but I am a total flop at growing roses! Maybe they are ruined anyway. They are still producing flowers, but they are small and few in number. If interested, send an e-mail. Thanks all.

Cheryl, you crazy thing, I have dogs to keep my feet warm!

Bring me a rose;
easier than baking bread on a Saturday morning when you ought to be obsessing about plants!

Bill, the roses you mentioned are hybrid teas, which are the most temperamental!

You can spray (or slosh-that way you don't have to worry about the size of the holes in your sprayer) a baking soda mixture on the leaves for blackspot.

but...
if you're just sick of the whole rose fandango, I'd love Mister Lincoln!

I will gladly bring you the "Mister Lincoln" at the Oct plant swap. The plant is about three and a half feet tall. Advise me here, should I trim it down to a manageable size for transportation or should I dig it up as it is? I don't mind either way. I like crinums, but they are too expensive to trade for a rose bush eat up with black spot. I would be willing to buy one from you though. I would really be tickled just to know that the rose still lived! My wife and I are looking forward to the swap meet and meeting new people. We will be bring one of my aunts along with her trade possibles.

Hi Sylvia -

Keep your fingers crossed that the sassafras makes it! I have a back-up plant for you just in case - I think it's a Carolina buckthorn (I think that because there's a larger one on the fenceline that the fence guys cut through). Leaves are shiny like gardenia leaves. This tree can be an understory tree, so it would do well in the shady part of your yard.

Hello Cheryl. Although we have a Springtown address, we are in Agnes. It can be difficult to organize out here. Some of the locals have been trying to start a flea market at the old Agnes school up on the hill here. It was yesterday, the 3rd and only three vendors showed up. I do not know how many people in this area are even aware of this forum, I found it quite by accident myself while doing a google search on some ruella I was given. I would be happy to assist in organizing a local swap. Maybe we can talk it over further on the 24th. :) Seeds I have : loofa sponge (how do you spell luffa), cardinal vine, balloon flower, Tx. Star hibiscus, ...... oops some one at the door..... will finish posting later...

Hi Fortunegardener -

I would love amaryllis bulbs! I'll bring you some of that native passion flower and some rose cuttings - which roses do you want? Buff Beauty is really putting on a show right now, and Mermaid is its regular thug self doing extremely well :) Seven Sisters only flowers in the spring.

If you want any roses other than those three, let me know ASAP as they're in Quitman and I have to plan the trip to get them right before the swap.

so good to hear from you!

Be sure you come to the new (or maybe temporary) meeting place-
our old place in the park is has been pre-empted this year, so we're going to the pavilion just past the ballfields & bleachers on Colonial in front of the zoo.

Easy as pie to get there:

From I-30, go *south* on University about 9/10ths of a mile & turn left on Colonial into the zoo entrance, & follow the road around to the bleachers;
the driveway/parking area is just past the bleachers.

I also have a heavenly bamboo plant that is about three feet tall and have beautiful red berries in the winter and crimson red leaves. It came up by itself in my garden area. Let me know if anyone wants it so I can dig it up and bring it to you.

Fortunegardener:

I'd love to have the heavenly bamboo & the rooted roses, *if* you have enough.

Please look at my list & let me know what else I can bring you!

Lin:

Do you need lycoria radiata (spider lily)?
The Carolina Buckthorn would be a good addition to the birds' smorgasbord here!

Serenitymoon:

You know how you can always find more plants that you want every time you re-read a catalog?...
Well.
I went back & re-read your list...

*If* you still have enough lavender mint & pink roses to share, I can bring you any/some/maybe all of these:

coral honeysuckle, schoolhouse lily, irises, easy salvias (they're all easy at my house or they'd be goners for sure!).

Sylvia, I would LOVE some lycoris radiata! I am a bulb FANATIC, we must be twins separated at birth. Glad you'll like the Carolina Buckthorn.

In case the sassafrass doesn't live, I brought a Mrs. Gonzales rose if that would do. I've had problems digging up the sassafrass - seems they're all connected at the root.

Time for me to go through my plants and get READY!! Yes, it will take me most of the week ... things are MOSTLY together but you know how that goes.

Hi Element! I will DEFINITELY bring you all the ChiChi ruellias you can handle - I can put a bunch in a box or something as I don't have big pots. I looked in the greenhouse today and have a puny fig potted up, will look at the ones that rooted in the side yard to see if there's one that looks better.

We can work out the trade there ... :)

Lin is here and if anyone would like cuttings of tropical hibiscus and/or bougainvillea, please post within the next couple of hours and she will bring them with her to the swap. I don't know the names of the hibiscus, but one is a double rose color and the other is a variegated single red.

Element, you need to post your "haves".

It puts people in a bind when you ask them "is there anything you're interested in?" without letting them know what you have to offer.

Hi Serenitymoon -

I also have for you from your want list - if you still want it - Jerusalem artichoke. It only has one stem but the roots ('chokes) are fairly nice. This one was a straggler that I missed when digging them up.

I'm fairly certain I have the passion flower for you, and will check on the fig cuttings today once the rain has passed. I may have to dig some up, the ones in the greenhouse have met MickeyMouse who has moved in for the winter...

I would love the Hawaiian Crinum Spiderlily!! If you have any of the onions or elephant garlic as well, that would be awesome.

Hi Element -

I'll be glad to swap the Chi-Chi ruellias for pepper seeds, but I have a lot of time and care invested in the rooted fig cuttings so I prefer to swap them for a plant that's on my want list.

Hope you understand . . .

Hey everybody - just found out my niece and Sis in law are coming to the swap from Oklahoma. Niece just remarried and is starting her garden almost from scratch and SIL doesn't have much to bring, but she did say she has some white Texas star hibiscus seeds to share.

How cool is that! Maybe there's something she'd like on my list for some of that seed...or I have some other plants I'll be bringing - can you ask them if there's something they'd like?

I bet they get the prize for "farthest distance traveled" - too bad the prize is Sylvia's basket of four o'clocks :)

I'm not going to be able to attend the swap after all. I'm still sick with what I'm assuming is the flu - I just can't seem to shake it. I had thought surely I'd be better by now. I apologize to those I had pretrades with, and I'll email you also to let you know. I hope it's not too much of an inconvenience.

I do have several Salvia coccinea Lady in Red volunteers and seeds. I also have some lady in pink about 2 seasons old.

I wanted to let everyone know that my dad passed away Oct 9th. I have been so wrapped up in his last care & then the funeral etc. that I never was able to get anything ready for the swap. On top of that I will be working all day Sat. so I can't even come out to say Hi to everyone.
I will miss ya'll & will plan to see everyone in the spring. Donna usually rides with me & so she also will be absent from the swap.

I hope that you all have a wonderful swap.

Love in Christ,
Debbie

Lin, two for each of your rose cuttings are enough. Could you also bring folksinger? I just did a web search and found it is a Buck rose. I love Buck rose but do not know where to get them! Do you like a hoya plant from me? I will bring it in anyway. Thanks.

HI Fortune -

Sorry - I can't bring Folksinger as it is in east Texas not the DFW area.

FWIW, I got this rose at Redenta's - and at a 75% off sale - guess they didn't know what they had!
