WOOHOO!! yes!! I was just thinking about this yesterday and wondering if you were going to jump in and get the ball rolling again this year or if someone else was going to do it. Bev weren't you asking if we would be willing to go to your place/area this year?
Consider me 'interested' :-0

Jeff: No it's never too early to start thinking about the spring swap! I would once again be interested and now can begin preparing some cuttings etc. Thanks. Ross.

RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

Hi Jeff et al, I'll second the WOOHOO! Please count me in. What a change from last winter. Last year I had johnny jump ups and pansies in bloom mid January in that big thaw, no such luck this year... I must look up how to start things from cuttings.

Cheers,

Recovering from Seedy Saturday... back online now.

I had some nice news this morning: three of my four Vigna Caracalla seeds sprouted (thanks for the trade, Melanie in Sarnia!). With an early start like this, the vine is sure ripen up some seeds this summer.

Re-thinking the idea of having the swap at our place... It's a hefty drive. A good forty five minutes from London to the south east. If people are willing to trek down here to the Banana Belt, I'm happy to host.

But I thought that last year's arrangement in Springbank Park was terrific. We had the nice shelter, good parking, an easy-to-find location. The pot luck worked really well, too.

So I guess I'd prefer the Springbank setup, with a schedule like last year, from 11 am to 2 pm-ish.

We need to set a date that works with the majority of people. I suggest that we rank the following dates in order of preference. If any of these is an absolute "can't attend", note that as well.

Sat May 30
Sun May 31
Sat June 6
Sun June 7

I'm okay for any of the above. How about you guys?

Count me in Jeff, have enjoyed the last three years of swaps nomatter where, hopefully I will be free whatever day it is held.
Bill


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

I liked springbank also

2 concerns,
1. shade...A more shady spot down near the parking lot so we and the plants are not fried by 2 pm..lol

2. Signet getting stuck with the majority of leftover plants
this is something we will have to address as its not fair for her and her husband after a long day of fun to be carting up everyone's leftovers.

So I will put a rule in place - all plants to be properly labeled - If you bring plants no matter how small your name must be attached to the container the plant is in (if you bring fifty plants they are to be labeled). At the end of the swap any leftovers with your name on it goes home with you to do as you wish..Compost,replant whatever. This way we are all responsible for what we bring. This is the fairest way and ensures everyone has a great time.

I will ask you signet if you would like to be in charge of activities and games since you always do such a great job with this and lets face it I suck at it..LMAO

I'm glad of the responses so far - It looks like everyone has enjoyed this winter thus far..lol

The other issue - with starting @ 11 means Colleen and I have to get to the park early to get the best spot ie 7-7:30AM - that's a long 4 hour wait. Last year we were at the park at 7:30 and it seemed like forever before everyone started showing up - this is one of the drawbacks of the Park. Summer you are competing with family reunions and other gatherings.

cheers

Can someone who lives in London (Heather? GG? Barb?) do the early morning park stakeout this year?

Seconding Jeff on the label rule. I will volunteer as "label cop" and provide markers and stakes so people can mark their stuff if they haven't already done so. If any leftovers in the circle have no name tags, I'll bring them home for the compost.

Also, can we be really conscientious with plant name labelling as well?

RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

I new here for about the last month, and I would love to come even though its a bit far for me. I have friends that live down there so maybe I will make a weekend out of it. If I can be any help on the day let me know. Do any of you know of anyone has something like this in my are, Barrie, Ontario, an hour or so north of Toronto.

Thanks Adam


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

Well we prefer a Sunday, so if the first Sunday in June is not good for Ross, then our vote is for the last Sunday in May, ...the 31.
I thought that Springbank was a great location also. Is there another spot that has a shelter like the one we had last year? I like the idea of a shelter in case of misty, rainy weather as well as sunny weather.

Adam, maybe you could post to see if there are other members in your area, and if there is any interest in a get together/swap. If the subject of the post includes your area then it might catch their eye.
If not, then our swap is a good time, with lots of plants and food and garden talk. :)

I would love to come again this year. I missed last year but was there for a couple of years before. Springbank sounds like a great spot. I'm good with again date.


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

I'll be there again. I vote for Sun May 31st, but any day will do.

Merja


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

I talked to Kenny (OrigamiMaster on GW) and he said that hes to busy, but I would be willing to do it. It would be in Barrie or just south. I will do a seperate post for interest. Could the organizers for this meet let me know the basics, how to organize and run an event like this, then I can get to work on it.

Thanks Adam (greenman_grower)

RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

Hi all,
I vote for Sunday May 31st too, or any day except Saturday the 30th (that's the day of the Mennonite Quilt sale in New Hamburg that my MIL and I go to every year)
Looking forward to the swap! And some warmer temps!

    Mon, Mar 2, 09 at 11:15

a quick answer to Carol's questions...

Directions. It'll likely be held where we had it last year, in Springbank Park in London, likely at the "stone cabin" picnic area on Flint Lane. Use the North Street park entrance and turn LEFT/West onto Flint Lane. The shelter is about 200 metre down the road, on your left.

Map here: http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=London&state=ON&address=Flint+Lane

Details: Just show up with your plants (labelled with the plant name and your name). Introduce yourself and get a name tag. Plants for which you've done pre-arranged trades-- put these in your "tradee's" area. It'll be marked with the person's GW name. You can bring extra plants (again, marked with your name and the plant name) for the "gamblers' circle". If you put plants in the gamblers circle, you may take some out.

Food: Last year was a pot luck lunch and this year will likely be the same. Along with your dish bring serving utensils and your own re-useable plates and glasses. We usually post what we're bringing to avoid food duplications. There is a covered picnic area.

Other details: bring your own lawn chair. To see what happened over the past three years, do a search on this forum using the term "swap". Signet hosted the swap in 2006 and 2007, so her posts are worth singling out.

That's all I can think of now. Nyssaman (Jeff) and Signet (Heather) will post more details as they're sorted out, as volunteers come forward.

 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

I don't want to seem difficult..lol..Because it is still early - I would like to scope out other locations with less sun..by the time I left last year 3ish some of the plants were dehydrated and succumbed to the heat..Maybe I can bring a large umbrella this year..There was a large area with many picnic tables with much tree cover if you went straight down to the parking lot on the left rather than turn on Flint lane..There was no cover though if it rains. I'm such a suck ..lol

I hear ya Jeff. If was mighty toasty last year.

I can bring a canopy-tent-- the kind that just has a roof but no walls. I guess it's about 10x10'. If we had a couple of those...

One idea: if we have the trader "lines" behind the building, against the north side wall, there would be shade. We could put gamblers circle under a canopy or two.

- Bev


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

Good idea about the tent, Bev. We don't have one, but possibly others might have one to bring.
There was a clump of trees near the building, so maybe we could use the shade from them to shade the plants.

I guess no one is in the swapping mood at present as the weather hasn't quite cooperated for us just yet. I have a few things growing inside in preparation for the swap including Clematis Tangutica sedlings and white Calla Lillies.

I also wanted to bump this message up before it fell off the first page.I see _ontnative has asked about date confirmation. Have you been thinking any more about that Jeff??


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

I don't know about everyone else but I am waiting to see what extra plants I have that I started from seeds this year. I moved last fall so I am pretty much starting over again. I hope to go to my brother's place in early spring and take back some plants from the ones I have taken to him over the past few years.

I have to update my trade lists but this year I am looking to get into named daylilies and hostas. I started over 80 daylily seeds that I bought online and they are doing great.I also started 5 different hostas as well as some other perennials and annuals.

I also have worm castings and I can make a fresh batch of worm tea is anyone would be interested in trading for that.
It's great for the plants.

What a great day to be out in the garden!
Didn't do much, but got some clean up done in the patio area. Still don't have a lot coming up in the garden, but I do have something to put on my list of offerings.
I have a lot of plastic plant pots. Square and round in all sizes.
Let me know if you are interested.

 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

Sorry Guys - I have been out of the loop here - did we pick a date that was good for everyone - In the next few days lets get that out the way (figure out the best day) - Then the mad insane trading can begin.

I like this heat but it sure sucks moving 60 large tropicals outside in the morning then back inside at night.

Cheers

Jeff


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

Yikes, Jeff! 60! I moved several pots....mainly brugs, but a few others...outside yesterday and it was no where near that many, but enough for me. 8-)I think they enjoyed their little vacation outside. I had one yellow brug with a wilted cluster of leaves when I looked at it this morning....not sure what that was about, but I picked off the leaves that were wilted and threw them away.

Anyway just wanted to officially vote for the best date for us and that is SUNDAY, MAY 31.

Lets get rolling on this everyone. May is just around the corner (wow it is getting here isn't it?)
I seem to have some 'no shows' from last year. I will give them more time, but some things look very dead! 8-(

As I said yesterday, my first official offering is a lot of plastic plant pots in various sizes. I came across a huge lot of them that were from a landscaping job at a house in Pt. Franks. They were all new last year (but used.. you know what I mean :)), so not old and brittle from sitting around for years. There are some that are not so new that have been around for a couple of years but the ones in bad shape have gone in the blue box.
gg


 o
RE: WANTED: Annual Southern Ontario Plant Swap/London and Area

I voted for SUNDAY, MAY 31st also.

I have quite a few plants that are dead also. I think this snowless spring is to blame. (BEV, alstoemeria is not showing yet either, so I am getting worried...)

Does anyone have any plants or seeds for 'Dianthus, Rainbow Loveliness'?
I would really love to have some.
Maybe if we can believe the weather report, and it does actually get nice, warm and sunny this weekend, the garden will spring to life and I will have some more things to offer, and the trading can begin! 8-)

I just reviewed all the posts on this thread and it looks like Sunday May 31st is the best date. So unless there's a mutiny of cries and anguish, consider it set.

With Friday and Saturday looking to be off the scale for warm weather in April, I'm sure we'll be getting into swap mode.

Patience. The green will come.

hello everyone. I missed the swap last year as I couldn't find this site. I just found it by accident today and would be very interested in joining the swap again this year.

I don't have much of a garden but very interested in expanding this year.

MoT, you don't have your e-mail posted so I have to ask here: do you medicate the horses? I'm interested in your offer, kinda pernickity about hormones and "ovulating suppressors" that are routinely given to horses and are not broken down by composting. Or at least I can't find any studies that say they're neutralized by composting.

Worming meds are okay-- you get that in all manure from human-raised animals. What other drugs do your horses get?

You can reply to me off-board-- email, then this off-topic conversation won't disrupt this thread. Thanks.

Hi Merja: The Agastache will be small, and the passiflora is from seeds I got from GG (!) Your delphi is worth them both. No problem. With our wet winter I lost three delphiniums. I am restarting a delphi bed in a more protected spot.

Hi MoT: Ok, one of each plox (the white "David" will be a volunteer from this year) for a couple of bags of your healthy "fertilizer".

Thanks!

Ross, the Parsley is from seed this year, so it'll be pretty small-- in a 3 or 4" pot. You can have both the parsley and the Amaranthus for a monkshood division if you like. LMK.

You may find it takes a year or two before they are a nice size too....but worth the wait!

Hey GG, Can you spare some comfrey divisions? I have one comfrey plant that was religiously deadheaded last year. No babies. My list is up there somewhere...

Also, do you want me to save you a passiflora seedling from the seeds I received from you?

Bev


 o
bev

Hi Bev,
No problem with the comfrey. Are you sure yours is not coming up? Mine comes back every year from the root.
I will be glad to bring some for you, it is up several inches already. BTW I answered you above and asked about your dill 'vierling'. How tall is it? I looked it up and got info that says it is anywhere from 18-24" all the way to four feet! Just a bit of a difference. :-)If it is the shorter kind, then I would love some of it, if possible.

Glad to see the passi seeds are growing for you. The one I left out as an experiment, seems to have bit the dust. The one I brought in is still limping along. If I can keep it going a while longer, I expect it to take off and look better as soon as I can get it outside.
Thanks for offering, but maybe you can use them to trade for something that someone is offering.

Hi Ross,

You're interested in the Verbena and Penstemon whippeleanus "Chocolate Drop" I listed.

Could you spare 3 or 4 seedlings of the annual Salvia "whopper"? I had a terrible time with the annuals this year-- only two of my Yvonnes Salvia germinated.

Maybe a Lunaria as well. I grew some Lunaria "Munstead" last year and they turned out to be rather short. I like the taller kind better. Maybe its just this sudden hit of hot weather that prompts them to bloom young.

I could increase the number of Penstemons and Verbena divisions to make the trade more balanced. LMK.

Hi again gang,

Well nothing has changed and it still doesnt look like I can make the swap so far but I am chomping at the bit and I was wondering if I can do some swapping with people and try to arrange a different time to pick up/drop off the swaps

Lovinlife: I would love to swap for Egyptian Queen and Dream Legacy daylilies and Patriot hosta and ventricosa if possible . I have some daylilies and hosta that I could swap with you .

And Greylady-Gardener , I am interested in your pots and comfrey , Is there some way we can work a swap ?

Merja , I would love to trade for Ice Cap and Pandora's box if possible. Can we work something out ?

Please let me know . Maybe I can meet with someone and leave my swaps for the others with them ?

Hope to hear from some of you

Signet

Let me know

signet

ROSS: Your regal calla lily are planted...up about 2 inches so far. I will set aside an easter egg plant (seedling) for you. Do you still have any whopper salvia left? If so, that would be great.

LOVINLIFE: Regal calla and red stella? daylily are yours...how does the grandpa ott and flying saucer morning glory sound in exhange?

BEV_W:
I am happy to set aside the rose of china (flowering almond) and the dwarf Korean lilac. I must warn you that they are very small (so far). If it is reasonable, just a small piece of walkers low nepeta or the tutti fruiti agastache would be greatly appreciated.

I hope to plant the other callas tomorrow for the other requests so they will be a little smaller than Ross's.

Thanks for all the trades everyone!
