Hi ditzgarden , I havent heard any rumblings at all about a swap this year . If it doesnt happen I hope you and I can work out a time for you to come out to my place to pick out some items from my garden in trade for items you sent my way last year please . Please let me know if you are still interested .

gardeng8 ....a couple of years ago you traded me 2 pots of daylilies . You thought at the time it was Ruby Stella. I thought you might like to know that it wasnt Ruby Stella but actually a cultivar called " Sammy Russell" and both plants are doing really well . Thank you !

Given this growing season , I am hoping for a date in June sometime . Last year everything was ahead 2 weeks or more , this year everything is WAY behind!

Signet


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

I'm not okay for June 4 or June 11 or June 25. That only leaves the 18th available for me. Drat! I can participate if Jeff goes-- I can send my plants with him.


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

good to see some response already. :)
Bev are you available for any Sunday dates? We normally have it on a Sunday anyway so how about the 12th? the following Sunday is Father's day and some may have plans.
Is the 12th too early for having available plants? It is seven weeks from today. It should be warmed up and growing by then. I am noticing lots popping up out there today. :)


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Yup. Any Sundays in June are okay with me. I'd prefer the 5th, but I'd still be available on the 12th or 26th.
- Bev


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

thenks Bev, I was wondering about the 12th in order to give everyone time for the things in their garden to be growing well but maybe everything will be well on the way by the 5th.
Anyone else have any preference?


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Hi!
I'm new to the forum, but if there is an exchange this year, I would love to attend. :)

~Emily


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

welcome Lilac. :)
There is an exchange, but we are just in the process of finding a date that is good for us. It has been held in Springbank Park the last three years.
Soon (like when our gardens are really starting to get going) we will begin to post the 'extra' plants that we have so that everyone can see what we have to trade. Then if someone sees something that they want, they will post a request with an offer of something from their list, or they will ask what is on their list that the person will take for the plant they want. (clear as mud?? :))
Hope that gives you the idea.


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

As far as the timing goes, I'd prefer June 12th or 18th, but I can manage an earlier date too. The plants are certainly behind this year so I think that should be a consideration.

If we're not going to St. Thomas to Jeff's place, we'd better decide fairly soon in order to secure our spot in Springbank Park - or do we claim squatter's rights without registering?

Anyway, we'd all better start working on our trade lists! Now if the plants would just emerge from dormancy....


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Thanks greylady :) I think I get it. Would plant cuttings count if we managed to root them first?

Hi LilacIsLove .

Absolutely rooted cuttings count as do all thing gardeny , old tools , magazines , books ,garden ornaments, garden gloves , manure , old newspapers for lasagna gardening , yogurt cups etc. Seeds and plants of course and yes rooted cuttings . Every one tries to work out trades in advance and then we have what we call the gambler's circle. This a a circle of plants ( everyone's extras that you are free to choose from ) you put in one plant you take out a different one . At the end if there are plants left over and you would like more you are more than welcome to take left overs . All that is asked is that the plants you put in as extras are marked with your name so that if anything is left over and no one wants them , you take your own left over plants home .

Hello Everyone:Glad to hear that the swap looks like a go again this year. The June dates mentioned suit me fine. Now I must start gathering up some specimens. Will keep an eye on this thread. Talk with you soon. Ross.


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

I am definately interested. I can make any date in June except the 4th and Father's Day. Thanks Signet for the correct daylily cultivar name...it must have been mislabeled. The variegated solomen's seal is now starting to show their heads. I'll check what else is available and post soon. Are we still doing a pot luck as well?


 o
RE: date-- Sun June 12 (?)

It seems like most people would prefer the 12, since we're getting such a late start this year. Sheesh! First it won't stop raining, and now we get gale winds and only the barely HINT of sunshine for the next two weeks.

Can anyone NOT make it for Sunday June 12? Kate? Lilac? Signet?

Jeff is still AWOL. I'll send a message through GW to the others who haven't yet posted here.

Bev


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

we are good for the 12th. hopefully the gardens will be dried up and growing by then! For the most part right now my list consists of the things that I have had good success with starting inside and are growing under lights right now. I am going to be (barring any more ugly weather) stripping a garden this Saturday. It is a garden that I planted about three years ago with leftovers from my garden. It is just outside a fence that borders the street, and consists of tall phlox, budleia, BES, daylilys etc. It attracts butterflies like crazy, but the kids have discovered them and just swarm to the garden with butterly nets and mash the poor things. I can't stand to watch any more so sadly I am digging everything out. I will know what I have and will be able to post a preliminary/short list by Sunday or the beginning of the week.

gardeng8--yes to the potluck! :) new plants and food-- good times!! :) The variegated solomon's seal is not actually 'owed', but was just promised that I could do a trade for some. Thank you for remembering! :)

Ditzgarden, do you have a wish/want list for the garden. I feel badly that I wasnt able to accomodate you visiting my gardens last year( all in all it was a rough year) but would like to make up for it if I can . So send me a wish list that I can go thru and hopefully I can fulfill some of your wants for your garden .

Thanks for your patience
Signet


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Bev sent me an e-mail about the spring swap June 12. Thanks, Bev. Don't think I can make it that day, but wish everyone the best. Maybe some year I'll make it to the London area and meet all of you.


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Here's the first two on my wish list:

- Mahonia (Oregon Grapeholly)
- Silver Lace Vine (can't believe mine died)

- Bev


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Woohoo! I can come this year! I am so looking forward to it! I already have 4 wheelbarrow's worth of plants potted up, some for the neighbourhood community association swap/sale next Saturday, some for my own sale (hoping to make enough to pay for a few loads of wood chips for paths), but first pick goes to you guys! I'll post a list tomorrow of what I've got so far. I really hope the perennial baby's breath survives splitting and potting up. It has great leaves but it needs different conditions to flower better.


 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Glad you can make it this year, Heather! Sounds like your garden must really be taking off and you must be really working in there. I started to do some cleaning up a couple of weeks ago, but then the cold rain moved in again and even on the days it isn't raining, it is so muddy and cool, that I just haven't done much since. I haven't been out there in over a week. :(
Today is going to be a major day in one of the gardens as I am having to strip it completely and refocus about what to put in there. I think more foliage so that it will stop attracting the butterflies. It is in a high traffic area and it gets abused and so did the poor butterflies last summer! :(

Hi greylady , I would love two clumps of your daylily please ... I am putting you down for the mini cream iris and poet's narcissus . These smell heavenly ....

Would do you have another cutting of the frosty pink brug? I would love one of those . I lost a lot of my brugs this winter with being sick ..... they were stored in the basement and my hubby didnt water them and truthfully I wasnt thinking about them at all (SIGH) the only cuttings that survived were the ones I could water upstairs . My basement brugs suffered terribly. I lost at least 30 of them

Signet


 o
Signet

Sorry to hear of your bad winter with sickness and brug losses. Hope you are back to health now! :) I don't have a lot of brugs and even less now. I also lost quite a few over the winter. I do have another 'frosty pink' cutting that is rooted and I will pot it up for you. Would a double white cutting in trade be okay with you?
How is your 'Charles Grimaldi'? I have a cutting if you need it. Let me know.


 o

brug cutting

Hi again ,

Yes, I am feeling much better ....it is long story but am on the mend . Ross thanks for the offer of the pink brug but You have first dibs . I only wondered if there might be another small cutting . Please accept the cutting from Greylady. I can offer you a double orange (it is quite a dark tone) if that interests you . No trade necessary .

I will wait till next year and maybe by then you will have a cutting from your plant to share to share. Right now I am so busy with the daylilies I grow and have to weed around and everything is so far behind this year that I probably shouldnt even be considering get any more plants at all LOL !what are the chances of that do you think ?

I would however love a blue Rose of Sharon seedling if possible please Ross .

Greylady I have put aside a double white cutting for you

Heather: Since you would like a blooming size Blue Rose of Sharon..I will try and pick out the most advanced that I have and pot it up as soon as I can get back out to the garden.

While I am thinking of it...Does anyone have any yellow Penstemon (confertus) and also any of the golden/yellow/amber colour Heucheras to trade??? If so please check out my list and we can work out a deal. Thanks.

Signet, would you be willing to trade your Chinese lantern for the chocolate vine?

And Ross, how about your orange honey suckle for the Trifolium rubens? Have you seen any humming birds around yours in the past?

RE: chinese lanterns

Hi Lilac , I would be more than willing to trade chinese lanterns for the chocolate vine , however I feel I need to issue a word of caution about chinese lanterns. They are lovely but can be invasive so you would need to plant where you dont mind if they spread. Not only do they produce seed ( this seed pod is the part that the paper lantern part houses) but they spread via underground runners. I just want to make sure you are aware of the plant habit of this particular perennial before you commit to taking it . I love them myself and use them in wreaths and flower arrangements but like I said can be invasive. Just an FYI in case you were not aware.

RE: rosco p. & heuchera

 o
RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Signet,
Thanks for the heads up! I'd still like one though please. If I need to, I can make lots of cuttings and give them away. :)
The chocolate vine can be invasive too, but not so much in our climate. It would probably still be best to prune it every few years once it gets established though.

Hi Barb,

Your old Japanese Quince shrub is doing fine in my yard. Thought you might like to know. Or maybe not. Maybe you're just glad it's gone...

RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

Hi Signet, I have some 1 gallon pots, and will most likely be getting more before June 12th. I have six so far though.

On June 4th, I'm going to get some raspberry plants that are being sold for $1 each. If anyone wants me to pick up any for them to bring to the exchange while I'm there, just let me know.

Also, I've updated my have/trade list. For anyone that wants to check it out.

Lastly, I'm desperately looking for some Spirea-Bridal Wreath. My mom is in Love with the stuff. She had a tonne of plants, but then we moved to an apartment and couldn't take them with us. We have bit of a yard now though so I'd like to find her some.
Thanks all!

RE: WANTED: Springbank Plant Exchange?

I'm here! I've been watching the posts land in my mail box, and waiting for a chance to get in on the action.

Sadly.. my action is a bit lacking so far. *Pouts* But here is what I've got.

Catmint
Jacob's Ladder (Blue)
Anemone (white)
Ligularia (Purple leaves, yellow flowers)
Chocolate Mint
Salvia
Bergenia
sweet woodruff
Ajuga
lily of the valley
orange cosmos (small seedlings atm)

Thats it for now. I'm sure there is more, but that's all I was able to get near with my 16month old helping.

I'm eyeing Rosco's Bear's Breeches (are there any left?)
Signet's Pale Mauve Iris that smells like a candy necklace, and brugs...

If nothing appeals.. I have many vegetable seeds. Shall I list and start a few? Empty pots? Mini blinds???

I participated in one of the very early years of this plant swap when it was held at Signet's home. Perhaps 2005?!? I'd love to once again meet up for a morning of fun with fellow gardeners.

I'll have to create an extensive list of plants I could offer.

My list of wants usual entails the unusual, and hard to locate...

I'd love to find a:
blue poppy
gas plant
fox tail lily
hibiscus
white ornamental onions
white jacobs ladder

more common
astilbe
foxglove
beebalm
butterfly bush
dahlia bulbs
dianthus
calla lily bulbs

As of right now I have:
turtle heads
sedum (pink)
obedient plant (pink)
rock cress (purple)
saw dust
newspaper

Hi Merja , hope we get to see you this year! It wont be the same without you !

Hi Ditzgarden, So glad you have joined us. If you have any pots, I am looking for 1 gallon size . Maybe we could work a trade for some of those .

You are most welcome to some of my Mauve Iris .. and the brugs too ( please note though that they are poisonous from the same family as potatos , tomatos. I mention this only as a precaution when there are little ones around . All parts of Brugmansia plants contain dangerous levels of poison and may be fatal if ingested by humans or animals, including livestock and pets. Contact with the eyes can cause pupil diliation (mydriasis) or unequal pupil size (anisocoria).Some people experience irritation just touching the stems or leaves) but if you decide you want them you would be most welcome to a double orange , double white or both .

Please go thru my list to pick items you might like in trade for items you sent my way last year that I didnt get to reciprocate.

I would also be interested in your orange cosmos if we can work a swap What color salvia do you have ? is it annual ?perennial?

Daldak, yes I have some trout lily I can trade you ........do you have any one gallon black ( or any color really ) plastic nursery pots by any chance? I am looking for used not new .

Thanks

If you want it I will put it aside for you. I must say it is small...maybe given another month it will be a bit beefier!! I also see that you were looking for some Calla Lilly corms?? I have 3 month old? seedlings of purple Calla if you are interested?

Carol: Thank you so much for thinking about me wanting the White Monkshood...I really appreciate that as I have wanted one of these for a couple of years now and just haven't seen any in my travels. I will be more than happy to trade the dwarf Iris for the Monkshood.Ross
