WANTED: Trade Lists Ft Worth Autumn Swap November 1 2014
I know that the weather is, as the song says, hotter than a two dollar pistol, but maybe that's the best time to start thinking about dividing, taking cuttings, planting seeds, stacking up extra pots, making some garden art...
I am thrilled to tell y'all that I took 3 cuttings from a neighbor's fig tree, & at least 2 of them show new growth!
Since I don't eat figs (is that the mark of OCD? you have to grow things whether you can use them or not?), I'll bring them to the swap.
datura, plain old-fashioned white
tall purple/blue salvia and/or a white one
light red salvia greggii
teeny weeny red yuccas grown from seed this spring
(I finally found the secret: clip off the tip of the seed!)
tall purple Mexican petunias
pigeon berry if wanted
I *may* have purple/blue vitex babies if the cuttings take.
(getting worried; this is sounding more & more OCD!)
Shasta daisies if someone wants them
crinums, maybe, if I make it over to help a friend divide hers.
orange trumpet vine if someone wants it:
this is a house-eating, barn-devouring, fence-cloaking maniac plant, but its sheer exuberance makes you feel good, & hummers & butterflies love it, so if you have a big area from which it cannot escape, let me know!
My neighbor is getting ready to to replace his fence, & the trumpet vine will likely be torn up, so let me know asap.
Rose cuttings- if you want:
Old Blush (I never have had luck growing these, but don't know if it's the rose or if it's me!)
Martha Gonzales (have had success with this rose)
nice pink climber, don't know name but looks "david austin-ish"
I have a tropical amaryllis, can't remember the color, that I'd like to trade for something that doesn't have to come in for the winter;
I do not seem to have the indoor plant gene!
I can bring some miscellaneous nursery pots & plastic mini-blind labels, & I may have some craft things.
loquat, 1 or 2
crabapple, 1 or 2
irises, especially the oldies
roses (plants or cuttings):
Mrs B R Cant
Duchesse de Brabant
