June second is fine with me, like I said, it was only the one weekend I couldn't come!

RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

June 2 is fine with me, I'm bringing a friend along this time.
Jean can do some swaps with my plants to get her started.
Does anyone want me to start up some pak choy-chinese cabbage for them? Or Florence fennel?

Greylady and Lilac

Hi Greylady - Can I interest you in something from my list? I'm interested in your Astilbe Finale if it's not pink. Google images wasn't much help - it shows about a third each of hot pink, white, pale pink and the occasional red! I'd be thrilled if it were red (or white).

Lilac - I'd love to trade for your 3 Blue Moon Glads and mixed hyacinths, I have had bouquets from my garden for the past month and am getting addicted to fresh flowers! Is there anything else you would like on my list?

I think I can maybe get one division of my chocolate boneset(eupatorium rugosum) if someone is interested.
Fingers crossed - I think I may have some self seeded Datura La Fleur Lilac seedlings, but they are tiny so not sure yet.


 o
blueiris3

so sorry heather, but the astilbe is pink


 o
Greylady & Signet

Hi Greylady, That's fine. Perhaps Signet would be interested? She said she was looking for pink flowers!
It was so nice to be outside today. My back has been giving me grief, so I didn't go all out, but still got lots of dead heading done. That and planted some pansies in big pots. I hadn't noticed that they are giant flowers, I was intending to press some to make botanical images with, but they take up almost a whole page!!! Ever so cheerful though :-) I found a few more Johnny jump ups to fill up the pot, those are a better size for pressing.

blueiris & one more thing

good that you got out and I hope your back gets better soon. It looked so nice out, but when I went out, the wind cut right through me. It was so cold. Didn't accomplish much today at all, but then I was also busy running errands.

forgot to add one habanero pepper to the list

RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

Hi blueiris!
I've kind of lost track of your trades, so I don't know if these flowers have been spoken for, but would you trade your oxeye daisies and suncrest lily for the Gladiolas and hyacinth?


 o
Lilac

Hi Lilac,
Oxeye daisies and Suncrest lily is a go for the blue moon glads and mixed hyacinths, as long as you are up for a surprise. Those lilies are not marked so it could be a white with red dots Suncrest or it could be a red Fangio!
If you are curious I have started a gardening blog
at bluems.wordpress.com
Insomnia has led to me making tea for me and compost tea for my many cuttings. Including 3 kinds of scented geraniums, 2 kinds of African violets,, purple clematis, variegated basil, Legion red geraniums, (from a cutting at a Legion branch - I was having a hard time finding a true red one), variegated pothos etc.

Hi Carol, it is too cold to go out isn't it?!

that is probably why it is so quiet here lately. :-)

is there anything on my list that you would be interested in for the 'goldrausch' shasta daisy ?


 o
RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

gardeng8

Can I trade you something for the small yucca and some bloodroot?
I have more to add to my trade list just busy mowing the lawn today, all bundled up.


 o
GreyladyGardener, Luckynes, BlueIris3

Luckynes: I will put your name on the yucca and bloodroot.

Greylady Gardener: I will put your name on the goldrausch shasta daisy. Your blue dragon interests me if you still have any left?

Blue Iris 3: I would be interested in any of your geranium cuttings (if any of them take) and also one of each of your lilies (latoya, panache, and the mystery fangio/suncrest) if any of them are available. I will be adding to my list soon if nothing grabs you yet!

Fingers crossed for warm weather soon:>)


 o
Carol again and adding

thank you, Carol I will put your name on the blue dragon. (this was so nice last year)

Do you see anything else? I would love the barberry 'rosy glow' volunteer if you see anything else.

if the weather doesn't ruin them before I pot them up--lychnis coronaria 'alba' - white rose campion


 o
RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

GARDENG8: I'd be interested in your 'Goldrausch' Shasta Daisy for the siberian iris 'Silver Edge' if ok.


 o
RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

Flowergirl_on: Thank you for the trade...I will put your name on the Goldraush Shasta daisy.

Greylady Gardener: I will put your name on the rosy glow barberry. I would like to ask for the astilbe if it is still available, however, the barberry is very small and this may not be an equitable trade for you. I can give something else in addition to the barberry if you like?

Sometimes I hate Gardenweb! I have been so busy with dentist appointments x 3 per week for the last 3 weeks and the bday cake and cake pops I had to make and and and. I havent been ignoring anyone just havent had the time to be on the computer .

Sometimes I hate Gardenweb! I finally had a few minutes this afternoon and wrote here. Submitted it and it rejected my message saying I had the wrong URL.?????? what URL???? And now the message is gone . Its almost not worth rewriting cuz I forget exactly what I wrote except that I think I can offer BlueIris a white Astilbe . So I will try again.

Blueiris . I believe I have a white astilbe. I planted a bunch of them from my sons garden last fall. They have returned but are just breaking the ground now so are very tiny . if you are interested , I will set aside one for you .

Lilacislove, Did I miss out on the hyacinths?

Gardeng8, not sure if you have anymore 'goldrausch' shasta daisy but if you do I am interested . if not , I am interested in your Black Scallop ajuga, phaeum samobar hardy geranium , obsidian and lime ricky heuchera noid pink flower crab-apple baby and your neighbours redbud seedling. ( what might she like in trade for the redbud?) Is there anything that I have that you might consider in trade for these items.

Rosco . Wondering if you would be interested in a trade of your white calla for one of my purple callas? Let me know please

Luckynes, I am interested in your Jerusalem artichoke please if it is the real deal . I bought some a few years ago and was assured it was the right one. It isnt and I have been looking ever since . I would also be interested in your snowpeas (2) and leeks babies . Also interested in your pak choy if you have more and wondering what kind of garlic you have . Hope there is something in my trade list that would interest you .

I dont know if I covered all that I wrote about before and may have even added to it this time . I am going to hit submit but this time I will take a copy of my message just in case.

RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

Signet: It is so frustrating when you hit submit and it gets rejected. How was the ladybug cake?...cute I bet!!!

Anyhoosies, I will put aside: goldrausch shasta(all gone now), black-scallop ajuga, phaem samobar geranium, obsidian and a lime ricky heuchera, crab apple and grab the red bud seedling from my neighbour.

I'll look over your list and square up for the trades later if that is ok with you.

Signet; I will set aside the White Calla for you.I already have the Purple ones....so would you have any colour of Tulip bulb that you would be willing to part with in exchange ??If not I;m sure I can find something from your list. Thanks. Ross.


 o
RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

signet, I am posting this here. I brought it over from the first page. I think you were hard at work on the ladybug cake and missed it. :-)

" could we do a trade of the pop cans for a brunnera 'jack frost'?
I would also be interested in the Kwanso lily that you have that has variegated leaves."


 o
RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

Garden8, thank you for the trade, now I will just have to find something for you.

Signet, The Jerusalem artichokes were given to me by our VON at the time. But I have to double check there well being, if so they are yours I have plenty.Send me a picture of what the grown plant should look like, and then I'll know we are on the same page.
Pak choy, leeks. and Snow peas are yours.
I have been growing garlic for a few years now and I have forgotten what they are called. I'll have to think about that for a bit.
Finally finished mowing the lawn.

Hi Rosco, I did list some black tulip bulbs .Not sure if that interests you . they are not huge and are really a very deep purple but are called black. I do have some red with black centers . let me know

Luckynes, truthfully I have no idea what a Jerusalem artichoke looks like (thought I did and the bloom on my plant sure looks like what I thought JA looked like but it doesnt grow the tubers that Ja is supposed to grow. ) thus being duped when I bought them before . I will try searching a pic online sometime over the next bunch of weeks before the swap ok .I dont really have time to do that right now . What interests you in trade for your pak choy, leeks and snow peas please.
I would like to try your garlic anyway if that is ok .Does it grow a big bulb? My friend gave me some and it does grow but only tiny bulbs.

Greylady sorry I guess I didnt respond to your request . too much going on . I hope I get these swaps all correct. Anyway , Yes, I will trade a Brunnera Jack Frost for pop cans. And the Kwanza daylily varigated is yours for the pop cans too. Thanks for the trade.Thanks for reminding me I appreciate it . oh if they survive , I am interested in one or two of your lycnis alba please.

Gardeng8 , thanks so much I hope to add a few more items to my list shortly so keep your eyes peeled for something that appeals to you.

Gardeng8, Greylady & Signet

Hello!
Signet - I'd love your white astilbe! Do you have enough of the variegated Kwansa lily to split another piece off? If you do, is there something on my list to tempt you? I'll be posting the list of all the trades I've made so far. Plus I'll repost a list of my available plants.

Greylady - Do you have another white rose campion available? I love the way my pink ones self seed, and would love to have a white one!

Gardeng8 - You are welcome to one of each of the Legion, rose, lemon and nutmeg geraniums provided they take. The nutmeg and rose ones are doing really well after a couple weeks, the others are still early days. (the coleus are doing so well that I'll be taking cuttings off of my cuttings to keep them bushy). I'll set aside lilies: Latoya, Panache and a Fangio/Suncrest mystery one. I'd love some of your 'hair' allium, phaeum samobar per. geranium (if you have more), Feecey's form var. ribbon grass, lamium yellow archangel, obsidian heuchera, lime ricky heuchera, fanfare gaillardia, and two future trades, that I'll hold off on until the other cuttings perk up.

Cheers,
Heather / BlueIris3

RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

Signet, you didn't miss out, I still have more! Mostly because the people who cut the grass here keep nicking one of the patches I have them, so I think they'd be a lot better off going home with you!

Thanks Lilac but it sounds like you are gonna dig up your hyacinths for me . I dont want you to do that ! I was only wondering if there were extras.

Rosco, I can do the red tulip or I do have some yellow ones and I have an orange yellow mix.Let me know which way you want to go please. and Yes it is Lycoris Squamigera that I would love to add here please

SIGNET: How about we go with a RED TULIP bulb for the WHITE CALLA and a few of the ORANGE/YELLOW TULIP bulbs for a few of the LYCORIS.Hope this is OK. Ross.

BLUEIRIS: I would be glad to have a piece of your Lorraine Sunshine Heliopsis in exchange for a Rose of Sharon sapling.

I also have a couple of small..approx.6" saplings of an
unidentified tree. I don't know whether they are pine or spruce or what? Anyone interested?

RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

BlueIris:
I'll put you down for those two others. How does your hot pink rose campion and yellow toadflax suit you for trade?

GardenG8:
I've read up on taking the cuttings, and it's the same principle as just about everything. Plus mine has put on so much new growth this season already, I figured it was the perfect time! I'll put you down for it, but I'll have to get back to you about a trade, it looks like I need to re-plan the garden again!

 o
Hyacinth

No worries Signet, I have to dig them up anyway because of the location, however, I do have 8 extra bulbs, I was thinking 4 for BlueIris, And 4 for you. How does that sound?

Gardeng8,(or anybody), I'm dividing the heucheras I got from you few years back right now. Do I need roots in every division or is the crown enough? I can't find a good answer on the web and you must have experience with this. Thanks in advance.

gardeng8, blueiris3 and signet

okay so I hope I have this straight--don't read for a while and you can get so far behind!! :-)

Carol, thank you for the trade of the goldrausch daisy for the blue dragon WS seedlings and the rosy glow barberry for the astilbe (and that is fine thank you very much!)

signet--thank you very much for the trade of the Jack frost brunnera and the Kwanza variegated lily for the pop
cans. I will also set aside some white rose campion for you.

blueiris3--I will set aside some white rose campion for you also.... do you still have some prickly pear cactus for trade?

I thought I was so much more careful with recording things as we went along this year, but the last couple of days have been so busy that I think it got away from me, so....if I have not acknowledged a trade or request, please let me know.

thanks for now

ROSCO: I will put your name on 'Perfecta'blue pincushion. I would like to try your red dalia if there are any left?

BLUEIRIS3: Your list looks good to me from this end.
In answer to your questions: The barberry I have set aside for you is a larger variety. The Momma is a beauty in front of my front window!...I believe we are trading the French Vanilla lily for that one?
The 'Feecy's Form' ribbon grass is considered aggressive. I plant it in pots and use it for containers. I would advise against putting it in nice garden soil willy-nilly!

I have you marked down for hair allium also.

According to my notes, I still owe you two trades.

Signet,, Ross, Lilac, Greylady, Gardeng8

Hi Signet, Ross, and Lilac; I like all the trades you guys have suggested in your latest posts.

Signet here is a link to the designer of the succulent container, he has lots of inspiring designs:
http://www.dustingimbelgardendesign.com/
the one Luckynes posted to FB was the ones with cascading babys tears, something with lots of thin spiky branches and filled with lots of big echeveria.

Greylady, I'll set aside some prickly pear cactus for the white rose campion. I need to get some heavy leather gloves to deal with that one! I'll find a box just for it, it has the nastiest little barbs that sting. The yellow flower is very nice, and it does dissuade critters from going to close to my new tulip tree!

Gardeng8 - I have just the spot for the Feecey's Form grass - between a parking pad and a 2 foot high planter box. Yes, the trade for the barberry is the French Vanilla lily. Do you have enough of the phaeum samobar geranium for me to get a second piece? How about the var. Solomon's seal?

Everyone - I have another fangio or suncrest lily and a couple of babies after all.

I thought I only had 5 of 6 more dandelions to pull, HA! a half garbage pail later... (a bit of that was other stuff)


 o
RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

A few more things to add to my list:
Dahlia- Arabian Nights x1
Gladiolus Acidanthera x15
White Lilac volunteer (Small)


 o
lilac

Is there anything on my list that you would take for your ' Arabian nights ' dahlia?


 o
blueiris3.

thanks for the prickly pear cactus. I got one last year that has two pads, but no spines. Not sure until I look it up, who I got it from--(lilac or daldak??) anyway wasn't sure if it was going to get spines when it 'grew up' or not. :-) are there different types? I have four small cement planters across the front porch that are in full hot sun and finally decided to give in and plant some things that I hope will do well there--sedums, sempervivums, and prickly pear cactus--will it do well in that situation? I was going to take the one from last year and move it into one of the planters also.

Greylady, how would the red peony poppies suit you in trade for the dahlia 'arabian nights'?

GardenG8, would you be willing to trade your sweet pea-bijou mix for the tree peony?

Signet, I was reading back and saw you wanted some stevia plants. I've got some if you're still looking.

I think that's all the loose ends so far, but if I forgot anything, please let me know.


 o
Greylady - Prickly Pear

Hi Greylady, Apparently there are several plants known as Prickly pear, but the one I've got has long barbs that are fairly easy to avoid, and tiny little ones with hooks on them that really sting and are hard to extract! They are edible if you know how to peel them, in Latin America and Italy they are well loved as food. They will do very well in a hot sunny location, that's where mine are, on clay soil in a spot with blazing afternoon sun. Just make sure they are not anywhere near a pathway or you will be cursed loudly by anyone who has a run in with them. :-)

Roscoe, confirming the trade of the red tulip for the white calla and a few of the orange/yellow tulips for the Naked Ladies. Thanks so much! I would be interested in your unknown pine/spruce tree seedlings .....maybe you will see something in the additonal offerings below.

BlueIris - How about we trade chocolate boneset(eupatorium rugosum)for the varigated Kwanza daylily? Let me know if this works for you please.Oh and wondering if we can change up our trade. I was able to dig up some large clumps of bluebells today after the bday party and so would like to give someone else an opportunity to have the bluebell trade . Instead can we do dicentra Bleeding heart - pink or white ? and I am changing your forget me not to white.

Lilacislove- if you are sure you are willing to part with the hyacinths I would love them . What would you like in trade please? I just didnt want you to eliminate them from your garden on my behalf so if these are extras I really appreciate them. I would love to try some of your acidanthera .....maybe there is something in the additions to my swap availables at the end of this post that would interest you in trade.

Luckynes, I am setting aside a few rooted boxwood cuttings and the thornless blackberry for you . I picked up some maple seedlings today but dont know if they are sugar maple or not( they have wilted some so will soak overnight and plant and see how they go) . Let me know if you are interested please.They have a true maple leaf so I know they are not Manitoba Maples which as it turns out are not maples at all.

Merja.....sorry to be taking so long to let you know about the lily bulbs but we have still not had any rain here and the plants are on hold till we do it seems. (or maybe if it warms up ) but just letting you know I havent forgotten you .

SWAP AVAILABLES UPDATE:

Giant Reed Grass
Porcupine Grass
Corydalis Mauve ( a few bulbs)
1 Hosta "Hanky Panky"
Perennial orange poppy (single and double)
bamboo division ( unknown variety)NOTE: It is not Japanese Knotweed!
Euonymous alata ( number of rooted divisions)
Wild Leeks
Iris dark purple (unknown name)
Iris historical mauve

Hi Signet,
It's no trouble about the hyacinth, I do have extras, so it's all good!
The stevia are seedlings but I started them back in Febuary, and start hardening them off in mid May for you. You haven't asked about the kale yet, but I'll put it aside for you with the acidanthera.
Would it be ok to trade them for:
Somniferum poppy pink peony
Larkspur

Hi Signet,

The chocolate boneset is yours for the Kwanza daylily, as is the pink bleeding heart (for the Purple Sensation Alliums).

I have a few questions for you!
What colour are your currants?
What colours of lungwort do you have other than Cherry rose and regular spotted?
Which coreopsis would you like? the 6 foot one or the 18 inch one? or both?

I would like some of your variegated Salix integra "Hakuro Nishiki" for my mystery lily that is either suncrest or fangio. How about a tropical ginger for 3 of my s/f lily babies?

Hi Blueiris , I wrote to you about the currants on a previous post. I am unable to tell you the color . These are bird volunteers and are 2 years old . That is all the info I can give you . My bushes are always robbed of berries by the birds however , they do give back and these plants are a result . It is difficult to tell color by the leaves but I will take the plants over to my plants and try to determine for you tomorrow.

I have a spotted leafed pink lungwort and a plain leafed cherry lungwort and just last year I added a white but not sure if it is able to be split yet.

As for the coreopsis ,I would love both if possible if not then the 6 foot one please.

I will keep you informed of the progress of the Hakuro Nishiki willow . Not sure if they will root in time for the swap but I am hopeful as they are willows. If they take then yes I would love to trade for your mystery lily. I would love trade you a tropical ginger for 3 of your s/f lily babies please.

Thanks for the confirmed swap of the Kwanza varigated daylily for the choc. boneset and the pink bleeding heart for the purple sensation allium

Ross I will check tomorrow to see how if I can spare another division of the porcupine grass before I agree to the swap .

Gardeng8, confirming all the plants mentioned above.

Luckynes, I can give you daylily Bonanza for leeks ,Porcupine grass for snowpeas, Couple of boxwood for Jerusalem artichoke ,Thornless blackberry for garlic, I dont have anymore daylily UFO to offer but could give you daylily Pink Damask for pak choy. Let me know if this works for you.

 o
Signet & Ross

Hi Signet,
Sorry I missed your earlier post about the currants! I'm fine with whatever kind, just curious, please don't bother comparing leaves. I would love some of your spotted leaf pink lungwort for my winter aconytes. I'll set aside both coreopsis for you, they are very different but both really nice yellows. I hope the var. willow takes, it looks great on google images. That's strange that the succulent container's designer's website loads but won't show you the pictures! Have you tried entering his name and the word containers into google? that might get you there, worth a try.

Hi Ross,
I'm cautiously optimistic about the Elsa Spath clematis cuttings I took a whole bunch and after a couple weeks just over half look like they are taking. Fingers crossed!!!

Hi Ross, did I say if I could divide it , I didnt mean that exactly , it really isnt a matter of dividing as I did that last fall . I am waiting and watching for new growth on the divisions . I dont want to promise only to find out the divisions didnt make it . We had a somewhat decent rain overnight so I am hoping the new shoots will show themselves shortly

Darn frost hit the astilbe so now I have to wait to see if more new growth will show up . Boy this has been a rough year here with bitter cold then hot then nasty frosts at night after leaves have come out . The hosta ,iris, and daylilies have all been hit , now the astilbes . Then no rain for at least a month here . Mothernature can cut this crap out any time now .Things are growing but are under stress for sure

Adding a few more to my availables:

Golden Hops
scotch moss (1 trade)
possibly some european coltsfoot

SIGNET: First I want to say that we discussed the siberian irises on the e-mails...that's why you can't find it here. :) I sent you a pic of the 'reddish purple' iris and it turned out that my memory wasn't very good, it was really just purple.

- Japanese iris, mauve
- phuopsis stylosa, Creeping Crosswort

SIGNET: do you have any more poet's narcissus? I am trying to make a nice show in my newly revamped front porch garden, and would love some more in trade for the lychnis alba.
I took the butterfly bushes off the list until they look more like they are going to actually make it. They are still very firmly attached in the soil when given a tug, but they are not showing any signs of growth. I figured if they suddenly start, then I would put them back on.
The seeds for the blue dragon originally came from "The Sample Seed Shop". (good prices-and cheap shipping) and I have had good success with all the seeds from there. I do have seeds for it if you are interested I would be happy to plant some for you and see if they sprout before the swap.--let me know :-)

Greylady, I would love it if you were to sow some blue dragon seeds for me please. I can trade you more Poet's Narcissus if you like. I hope everyone realizes just how quickly these plants increase . You may want to choose something else .Just as an example, I started some little clumps of three all along the path of my circle garden two years ago . They are now clumps of about 8 or9 plants . So forwarned is forarmed! If your buttterfly bush cuttings do take please keep me in mind for one please. (if noone else wants any and both take , I would be interested in both )

Flowergirl, Thanks for the reminder about the sib.iris . I didnt remember we had talked about it in the email and I searched and searched these messages , couldnt find anything and thought I was losing it . LOL! Yes, I am interested in the sib iris with the little bloom too please. Thanks .

Thank you merja! :-)The hosta already has your name on it.

signet, I am hoping the poet's narcissus will make a nice border in the front of the garden. I took the one's I got from you last year and broke them up into three clumps of just a few each and put them between some of the sedum clumps. Now I need to fill in the rest.

I planted the seeds this morning when I read your message, but am just saying now as I had to run out for a bit. I put them outside, as I WS the first batch so these should be fine also.

I will definitely keep an eye on the butterfly bush cuttings and let you know what happens.

The siberian iris with bigger purple flowers has a name now. It wasn't mislabelled after all. The name is 'Ruffled Velvet.

paper birch--sown from seed a few years ago (approx 2008?).

RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

Luckynes,

I have potted up 3 boxwood cuttings for our trade of boxwood for Jerusalem artichoke . (you do know these are small right ?) they are one season old so about 3 or 4 inches tall ) Is that a good number for you? If you want more boxwood , I would be interested in more Jerusalem artichoke (assuming a trade is one root.)

May I ask what colors of iris you have please? and I am interested in your Highbush Cranberry (Viburnum trilobum) What might you take in trade for that ?Also Black Hollyhock? How are your poppies(blue seed) coming along ?

I would love the grape cuttings but wont ask you to take cuttings if you are not sure how to . I dont want to be responsible if they were to die because you took cuttings. The cuttings are usually from pruning the vines and I am not knowledgeable enough to say when the proper time to take prune grapes is I'm afraid.

I have a yucca to offer as well if anyone is interested otherwise it goes on the compost this year. No trade necessary

Gotta go .

(I have the seeds already planted for you)--they should pop in a couple of days


 o
RE: WANTED: part 2: Springbank Park, London, On, Plant Exchange

ignet,
Signet,
I guess the correct term for bunching onions is potato or multiplier onions. I tend to call them bunching onions because they crow in a bunch.
They are better than walking onions because you can use them for more things and once you plants them, and if you don't use all of the bulbs you will always have more.
I love them.
I have set aside 5 tubers of Jerusalem artichokes in 2 pots for you, and you can have more. I will trade you more for more boxwood.
As for the irises, If you are on Facebook, I will show you pictures. I will get back to you on names. Maybe blueIris3 will help me out.and the Black Hollyhock too. What do you still have to trade?

To the people I offered Crocosmia to in trade. Can you please pick something else . It seems this winter was not good for the bulbs. I have tried digging to find some and (they should have been showing by now ) and they are soft and mushy .I am guessing because the ground never froze and the clay held too much water . It was a nice clump too ......now I have to start from scratch again. It seems I also lost some of my heucheras , and tiarella and my labrador violets to

SIGNET: I am also interested in your deep purple with mauve Iris and your cherry red phlox...I'll be adding to my list on the weekend hopefully if the weather and time cooperates!

SIGNET: Don't worry about the penstemon. It was you but now I'm not sure if it was a penstemon after all. It was flowering at the time and had beautiful lightish blue bell flowers. But like I said not to worry, I should have taken it when you offered it. :) I would like some of your cherry red phlox, please. I'm trying to think what else you might have there that I would like since I have some catching up to you. I don't know if you saw my e-mail long time ago since you never answered it but I asked for pink peony poppy. I know it is not easy to transplant them. I got a few single red poppies digged up...have to see how they'll do.

Available:

Prairie Traveller's Joy clematis

Merja , I have been thinking and maybe the plant you are referring to is Virginia Bluebells. Here is a link to yahoo images for you to compare to your plant of memory.

Could this be the plant in question ?
I got a plant last season at the swap and I was arranging a swap with Blueiris this year for another because I thought I lost it ( I didnt I moved it ) but then was able to go dig some up on a friends acreage. So that swap is still available I believe.

SIGNET: I don't think it was that. But I might ask for that from her then. I have some catching up to do with her as well. Thank you, Heather. And thank you for the cherry red phlox and pink peony poppies.

Do you have any prickly pear left to trade? I had some once and it disappeared and I would like to try again.
Thanks

I am always looking for pots !small pots , 1 gallon pots, 2 gallon pots and larger pots , Just no clay pots thanks . Will trade for plants . Also old venetian blinds to use for tags ( white preferably) but any color will do as long as they arent dark.

I also have saved some yogurt containers ( I meant them for Bev as they were what she liked to use )but now that Bev is not attending wondering if anyone can use them . No trade just need to know before I toss them to the garbage.
