WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in a spring tailgate swap/Barbecue in London @ Springbank Park - lets say the 2nd weekend in June. This swap would be for anyone in the southwestern Ontario region. Because of the short time frame please post ASAP your interest in this possible event. They do have barbecues there also. I would need some help with the planning and execution of the swap so if you are interested please notify me.

cheers

Jeff

What day do you have in mind for the swap Jeff? I would be able to attend if the event is held on the Saturday of that particular weekend. Waiting to hear what ideas you may have....Ross.

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Thanks Heather - Lets make it noon on Saturday

Saturday works good for me also Ross - Ideas , Ive heard of those things..lol - I was thinking, well a barbecue. I will have to call ahead I think and reserve an area of the park for us crazy gardeners. I think I will follow Heathers format - A little time for Meet and great - then an area where everyone will have there name and leftover treasure area where everyone brings their extras. I'm really not that creative.

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Well rats!! The second weekend is not good for me. :(
I was hoping for something to happen, but it looks like this year will have to be a pass for me then.
Have fun and I hope the turn out is great!

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Sorry GG,

Seems if I remember from last year you could not get to Signets place because you had to work or you had to watch kids - I tried to pick a day before we get to far off into the season..since it is such short notice..Again my apologies

cheers

Jeff


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

No apologies necessary, Jeff! I would love an outlet for my WS babies, though. It was my first year and I didn't realize that it would be so successful. I should have had more faith! :) I'm sure that I will be able to find homes. I will just have to start handing them to everyone I know.
I did actually make it to the swap last year. I wasn't sure that I would as I thought that I was going to have to work, but it did work out and I really enjoyed it. I have been seeing some of the plants that I got starting to come up in my garden.
Signet, the second Saturday of the month is the greyhound walk at Springbank. Maybe you could juggle both! :) I hardly ever get to it anymore, but I do like to take mine when I can. We won't be able to make that either. I did contact you about the pink lily of the valley, but then never heard back. Are you still interested or did you get some already?

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Jeff,

Please count me in. I have a wealth of winter sown seedlings to trade or give to good homes. I simply don't have enough space for the 20+ coreopsis tinctoria among others :)
I hope others chime in soon.

Cheers,
Heather

Hi Ross,

signet here . Last year at the swap I think I missed giving you something but I'll be darned if I can remember what it was. It may have been Trillium but I cant remember for sure . Do you remember what it was? I could make sure you get it this year ...I wont have to many other things on my mind LOL ! ( I hope I am forgiven for missing giving you whatever it was I was supposed to give you ) Reading this I am not sure any of it makes too much sense but I am hoping you understand what I am referring to and that you remember what I owe you.

 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Jeff I think I should be able to make it as well. I have some extra seedlings and divisions of a few other plants that I would love to find homes for. I might know a couple other people that could attend as well.

Mike

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Signet: Don't worry about a plant that you may or may not have forgotten! From what I witnessed you were far too busy trying to please us all and your generosity was evident. I had a great time at last years swap and went home with plenty of new additions to my garden including a Brugmansia that you found for me. I certainly was not disappointed and am looking forward to meeting and trading with you again this year. Until then ...Happy Gardening. Ross.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Jeff,

I think I'll be able to come also. One of the kids has a soccer tournament but my hubby said he can take her. So I will most likely see you all there.

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

So we're saying SATURDAY, JUNE 14TH, 11AM then? Sunday is Father's Day.

I'm fairly busy that weekend, but since it's only 5 minutes away, I should be able to quickly slide over, make an appearence, swap and dash out if that's ok?

Off the top of my head, I think I have some Peony (Pink) to swap, probably some Canna, a few Raspberries (Spring & Fall cropping), Heliopsis helianthoides 'Loraine Sunshine' seedlings, a couple tiny white bleading heart seedlings, maybe pink ones too, probably Datura seedlings, and I'm not sure what else. I'm looking for toad lily, Heuchera, Oriental perennial poppy, other shade lovers.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Ross,

The day of the Swap will be Saturday June 14th
The time of the Swap will be 11AM until 3PM - 4 ish
I'm going into London Tomorrow and will find a nice shady accessible location - hopefully with a barbecue & some picnic tables - we will need to bring lawn chairs - Does anyone have a small little barbecue just in case - that we can cook up some weenies and some burgers on?

Cheers

Who is interested in the Barbecue/potluck side of this - Since it will run through the lunch hour - If so, who can bring what?
We need thinks like potato salad, hot dogs and buns, wieners and buns - pop, some chips - some sort of dessert - Maybe veggie burgers if someone doesn't eat meat.
Maybe someone makes a wicked salsa recipe
I don't know about you guys but I love to eat especially if I'm having a good time..lol
Also - does anyone have a small barbecue that they can bring?? - I really need an answer to this one ASAP

Hi Rosco_p

Thank you for the trade . Confirmed that you have allium and ladybells in trade for your bamboo and Silver Maple. I am tempted to try to work a trade for a kerria but you have sent me one before and I have bought two and none have survived here I have no idea why . Very disappointing as I really love that plant .

Jeff ...whoo hoo what would you like in trade for the banana ? Let me know please.

Oh and if anyone is interested I have lily of the valley ( lots ) and hardy yellow blooming cactus .

Mike would you still like the Clivia I offered you ? let me know please If you dont have the Iochroma cuttings would you have a small orchid baby that is easy to grow ( cuz although I love them , I know very little about orchids ) If you dont have an orchid or something else , not to worry , you can still have the clivia if you would like it .

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Heather, thats great that you can bring a barbecue - now that we have a barbecue we need:

Who is bringing or can bring what food - everyone always has something good they make, ie a special salad - So if we can get a list of who can bring what that would be great , the sooner the better - Posting right along with swap info is fine I will separate it out. Has anyone heard form Knottyceltic (Barb) or from Bev - also we need the traditional stuff like wieners and buns and burgers and buns and pop.

I am still planting out - so I am not sure of what I have extras of yet but I think I will have a few things.

Cheers

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Heather the Iochroma cuttings eventually rotted but I do have some orchids that could stand being divided. Google Bulbophyllum ambrosia and Bulbophyllum Elizabeth Anne 'Buckelberry' and tell me what you think of those but be warned that Bulbo. Elizabeth Anne looks beautiful but smells like dirty old socks/fish. I also have some tiny little Dendrobium aphyllum plants if you don't mind waiting several years for blooms.

Here is what I have to trade.

1 tree tomato cutting well rooted
7 pots of Nicotina sylvestris
2 pots/small plants of Salvia Whopper Lighthouse
4 small Selinicereus megalanthus,yellow dragon fruit cacti
Cryptocereus anthonyanus cuttings, rick rac cactus
Huernia plant with cupped flowers plus Stapelia gigantea cuttings.

I am looking for rat tail cactus, Hoya cuttings of species I don't already have and possibly annuals or perennials that can be grown in containers and that will be attractive to hummingbirds. I also collect African Pelargonium species and bulbs. Because i live in an apartment I am limited in the garden plants I can grow.

Jeff I can bring a pasta or chick pea salad and some juice as long as my sister is driving. I will have to get back to you when I know her schedule.

SIGNET: That is very nice of you to offer to recind the trade of the Japanese Painted Fern so as I could pursue another trade but that will no longer be necessary as I was able to find another division of the fern for Capehlke.So if you would like to trade for the fern Signet... if you had something red that enjoys sun?? I would be appreciative. I don't really care what it is as long as it is not an invasive plant. Also Signet if you would like the Blue Rose of Sharon I will put it aside for you.Thanks. Ross

CAPEHLKE: If you would like to go ahead with the trade of your Lorraine Sunshine for a division of Japanese Painted Fern, that would be ideal. Please confirm. Thanks. Ross.

Hi again Greylady-gardener. I will watch for the email . Thanks

Rosce_p . I have an absolutely gorgeous red daylily to trade you. It looks like velvet when it blooms. Probably grows around 30 inches tall . And dayliies need sun , the more the better they bloom .Definitely not invasive.

I should tell you though that the ladybells can be invasive , they grow rhizomatously and they produce seeds . You can control it somewhat if you dont allow it to go to seed , the good thing is that it is fairly easy to pull out though so it can be controlled that way too . Let me know if you would prefer something else . Another thought ...you can drop a bucket in the ground and plant the ladybells in that ....so that the roots dont run . This method is supposed to be good for things like chinese lanterns which can be horrendous to eradicate from a garden . Ask me I know !

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Ross,
The 3 Penstemon Barbatus, and 2 Perennial Poppy Checkers are yours, the Monarda Fistulosa are quite small so I'll pot up a few of them. If anything else catches your fancy I'd also like some of the lemon yellow daylilies.

I'm looking forward to the couple of Kerria Divisions...a Blue Monkshood and a couple of Lunaria (money plant)

Cheers,
Heather

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi blueiris/Heather, I know that I am most likely not going to be able to make the swap, but I would really love to have some 'heliopsis Lorainne sunshine'. I do have plants and lots of winter sown seedlings that are still quite small and would be happy to provide a list for you if you are willing to make a trade. We probably don't live far apart and could maybe get together somewhere at another time to make the trade. please let me know.
thanks,
Lois

Hi everyone my list is as follows so far

Hibiscus acetosella 3 young seedlings roughly a foot high
Goji berry vine 2 - 7 inches high
Sabal minor var Oklahoma - one the hardiest palm species on the planet - good for Chatham Sarnia ie 6B - slow growing but in 4-5 years you can plant outside these are 1 inch babies - I have 3
Bauhinia Orchid tree (TROPICAL) seedlings 6 inches high - 2 - not sure of the color

Food is as follows

Frogged: is bringing the potato salad
Signet: is bringing the Barbecue & and a dessert
Ross: is bringing hotdogs and buns
Mike: if he has a ride is bringing pasta or chick pea salad and some juice
Blue Iris: is bringing a drunken potato salad - Will I be able to drive after this? hehehehehe

I have not scouted out a location in Springbank park yet I will do this next week I have just been too busy.

Everything seems to be coming together well for the swap - I will list more of what I will have and extras soon.

Cheers

Jeff/Nyssaman

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

I'll have the following and more available for the swap:

Rodgersia aesculifolia seedlings
Astilboides tabularis seedlings

Both of these are moisture-loving/bog plants that have incredible foliage - the Rodgersia has huge palmate leaves (like a chestnut tree) and the Astilboides has huge rounded leaves, both have Astilbe-like flower plumes but are mostly grown for their foliage. I have WAY too many seedlings of these.

Achillea 'Moonshine" - blooming size plants - pale sulphur yellow flowers, grey foliage, very drought tolerant

Fernleaf Peony division (Paeonia tenuifolia) - single deep red flowers, deeply dissected (ie fernlike) foliage, early blooming herbaceous peony - the mother plant has already started blooming.

Salmon Oriental Poppy

More items to list as I take inventory.

Hi Barb from London,

I'm really, really hoping that something or several somethings of mine interest you, I'd love to give your fern-leafed peony a home. I was lusting after one after reading about it in an old Canadian Gardening article. I'll keep my fingers crossed but I know that it's pretty rare.

Cheers,
Heather P.

P.S. Jeff/Nyssaman the fumes from the salad will tickle your nose but not a breathalyzer :)

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hello, Signet again sorry it takes me so long to get back here, I will bring the wisteria seeds for you. I read that they take a few years of growth before they bloom, the plant it self grows like crazy. I had to cut mine out of my house last year, this year so far its better behaved. Since we have two potato salads I could switch and bring a punch drink instead. See everyone there Frogged.

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Ross, yes I'll gladly trade digitalis carillon for yellow daylilies!

Hi Signet you're on for the trade of burgundy/green variegated hot pink phlox, buddleia Black Knight, rue, French tarragon for your allium, double feverfew, commelina, hardy yellow blooming cactus, would you take a red oriental poppy for the achillea "the Pearl", I don't have any "Checkers" left (or rather the two that are left are too tiny for words and wouldn't be a fair trade, they're 2-3mm across). Is there anything else of mine that you would trade for some chocolate mint? I managed to kill mine, the container it was in got frozen solid with a layer of ice across the top.

Hi Capehlke, Would you take a red oriental poppy instead of the "Checkers" one? The variegated pink phlox, snapdragons, yellow teardrop tomato are set aside for you. I'm really looking forward to the japanese iris, the german iris, and the white bleeding heart seedling. Is there anything else on my list that you would take in trade for the dwarf early iris, or the double purple datura?

Hi Mikedahms, I'm not sure if the penstemon is hardy, I got the seed in trade and this is my first year growing them.

I have a few more things to list:
red oriental poppy
deep blue balloon flower
burgundy/green variegated spotted hawkweed (I know, I know it has the dreaded word weed in it's name, but this lovely plant has yellow flowers from late May through most of the summer and only gives about 3 babies a year in an unmulched bed, plus it's good for butterflies)

Hi ,

Capehlke - my toad lilies are only now just starting to show their faces. So if you are willing to wait ( depends on how big they are when the swap happens, I will have a toad lily for you.) Possibly a heuchera too.

Getting my trade list together in one spot:

Double Feverfew
Evening Primrose (yellow)
False Solomon's Seal
Chinese Lanterns
Ladybells
woodland violets
1 spotted violet
Dame's rocket
Tansy
Forget me not
Centaurea montana (purpley blue)
Commelina
Centaurea Dealbata ( pink)
Lemon lily ( hemerocallis Lilioasphodelus)
I will have some unrooted cuttings of brugmansia some named some not

A few heritage tomato plants .
Lily of the valley ( white)
Poet's narcissus

Star of Bethlehem
Snowdrops
bags of Zinnia seeds , Canna corms and some Dahlia bulbs
Siberian Iris
Gooseneck Loosestrife
Rudbeckia Lancinata
Hemerocallis Fulva Europa
Hosta lancifolia
Some heritage tomatoes: Black Cherry, Muchamiel, Sweet one Million
Echinacea
Iris : pale mauve , Purple with yellow
Achillia "The Pearl"
Musa " Little Prince" 2 pups (Jeff does one of these interest you in trade for the banana you have. these are small maybe 2 inches tall )
Geranium cuttings : 1 Vancouver Centennial (rooted) and 1 Indian Dunes (in the process of rooting )
Jack in the Pulpit
Creeping Buttercup
Bull's blood sedum
Iris Pseudocorus
White Yarrow
1 division of Hosta "Sum and Substance"
One very small eye of Hosta " Spilt Milk"

NEW ADDITIONS:

Varigated hosta (trying to find out the name from the friend who gave it to me ) it has small spoon shaped leaves bright green with yellow edge
White and green Hosta (nice increaser)
1 division of Hosta Raspberry Ripple
Pink Obedience plant

Is there going to be a gamblers circle ? Just a thought but with holding the swap at the Springbank Park, I think we need to speak to the plants that may be left over ( If there is a gamblers circle , we will need to ensure that NO ONE GOES HOME TILL THE CIRCLE IS EMPTY! ) Even if it means taking a few plants that you share with a neighbour if they dont interest you .

What do you think Jeff?

Signet


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Signet: I'll bring mini tan iris, mauve/pink historical iris and some Lupine seedlings for you. I can bring lily 'Iceberg' (white) for you also but you should have it already. I gave it to you when you came over 2 - 3 years ago. Just letting you know in case you didn't realize this is the same one. Yes, I'd love to have daylily 'Fuss and Bother', tomato Muchamiel, geranium 'Vancouver Centennial' and geranium 'Indian Dunes'.

Blueiris: Confirming the trade, thank you. Is your digitalis purpurea by any chance some other colour than purple?

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Just a few requests after reading all the posts over the last day while I was absent from the computer. :)

mikedahms--is there anything on my list so far that you would trade for your cuban oregano if it is still available?

flowergirl--is there anything on my list that you would trade for your coreopsis 'tequila sunrise'(please, please! :)) and your digitalis purpurea 'snow thimble' if it is still available?

signet--could you tell me how big the 'hosta with small spoon shaped leaves (bright green with yellow edge)gets, and is there anything that you would trade for it if it is not a big one? I tend to like the small/medium hostas. I was trying to find info on 'hosta raspberry ripple but could find nothing.....can you tell me about it or is this an error. :)

rosco p--do you have any blue cadet hosta left? Is there anything that you would trade for one? I think it may have been you that I got one from last year. I really like it and would love another if possible.

I am figuring out what to bring 'food wise' and will let you know shortly.

gg


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Greylady

Sorry it is Raspberry Parfait not Ripple ( did I write Ripple? ....My bad!)

Here is a link to a picture of Raspberry Parfait . It is a medium size Hosta http://www.hostavalley.com/a-raspberry_parfait.htm The name comes from the Raspberry colored stems.

I am guessing the other hosta which I am still trying to find the name of grows to a clump about a foot across and maybe 10 inches tall. I will know more once i find out the name.

I would like to trade hosta for hosta . Do you have any hostas that are ready to split by any chance? I am open to pretty much any of them but I prefer the huge ones LOL! .

I am interested in your Pink Princess spirea though so I am sure we could work something out.

Nyssaman .....how many pounds of Pink obedience would you like ! I have been growing it for quite a number of years so have lots. You are welcome to lots as I need the space to plant daylilies. Oh and a wee banana "Little Prince is set aside for you .

Signet


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Signet--thanks for the info about 'rasperry parfait'--very pretty! I will look at my two biggest hostas and see if they can each spare a piece. Both are NOID as one was given to me from my mom and the other from my FIL, and as they were probably given to them from another gardener, I think the names if they were ever known, have long been lost. The one might not be ready as it is taking its' own sweet time growing, but I will try. Like you said though, I do have several little princess spireas that are at least a couple of years old and most of them are at least a foot or two tall already.....(they kind of got growing in a jungle area that was a bit neglected and were a real good size by the time I found them).
I will let you know asap.
I will also be able to bring you the pink LOTV! :)

The flower is pretty much the same with a red ring around a center. It grows about 25 cm tall. Let me know if you want it any more. I have digitalis 'Snow Thimble'. The seedlings are small still (1 inch) so I'll give you a few. I will keep my eyes open for your future offers.

Everyone: My coreopsis 'Tequila Sunrise' is now listed as coreopsis, single yellow.

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Ross--thanks so much for the blue cadet hosta. I will have rudbeckia cappucino for you in exchange.
thanks!

Merja--that's okay--don't feel bad at all! :) I have done pretty well the same thing to people, and they (hopefully) were okay with it. I figure the day I become 'perfect' is the day I will start getting annoyed about such things. :)Thanks for the digitalis snow thimble and yes the coreopsis would be great also, if you are able to see something on my list.
I will probably be able to list more things in a while....maybe by tomorrow after work.

Hi Heather, I checked out the hosta. One of them is do-able--I can slice off a chunk for you, so could I trade it for the raspberry parfait? It is fairly large--bright green leaves that look very wrinkled. The other one really doesn't look like there is anything that would be good to slice off right now--and the leaves look awful--the hail on Saturday afternoon shredded them....it is in the front of the house and up against the house--the other is out back and not under any kind of protection and it is fine...no hail damage. Would you take the spirea for the other hosta.
Let me know....thanks :)

Hi Greylady,

Please dont cut your hostas unless you are sure that they are of an age to split them. You can still have the two hostas (Raspberry Parfait and the spoon shaped yellowy green one ) I have on offer. We can do some virginia bluebells for one trade (I would love some of them ) and the other a princess spirea seedling. I dont want you to risk losing your hostas if they are not ready to split .

I am curious to know what a one small golden bluebeard seedling is ? This sounds intriguing to me .

Signet

RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Graylady: Thank you for being so understanding. I would love to have a golden bluebeard seedling and hollyhock 'Queeny Purple' for coreopsis and digitalis 'Snow Thimble', if it's okay with you.

Merja


 o
--signet&flowergirl-- spring swap/barbecue london/springbank par

Hi signet-- I don't have a problem with cutting the one. It isn't new and has been in that spot for several years--divided a couple of times--I cut off a small piece last year and that is probably why it is a bit lopsided (if you look under the leaves) and has a piece that could be cut off to even it up. :), so if you still want it, let me know. Otherwise I will do the Virginia bluebells and the spirea. Just let me know positively.
Thanks very much for the hostas!
the golden bluebeard is a 'caryopteris-golden bluebeard'--I should have put the caryopteris in there but somehow didn't. The one I was offering has just been spoken for by flowergirl, but I do have another very small one, that I wasn't offering because it is kind of misshapened, in case you are interested.

flowergirl--confirming my hollyhock'queeny purple' and golden bluebeard for your coreopsis and digitalis 'snow thimble' thanks! :)

Greylady,

I am at 6's and seven's as to what to do . Is it possible to see a picture of your hosta? If I already have that particular kind then I would go with the spirea and the bluebells. However on looking over your list again , I would also be interested in some Lirope . Is there something else I could trade for that ? How about a small "Twist of Lime " Hosta ? let me know please.

Flowergirl: I would still like the LA Hybrid lily 'Iceberg' .If I have it , I have no idea where it is. Maybe it didnt make it where it was planted . So if we can do this one that would be great . let me know what you would like in trade for it .

Thanks

Hi signet,
I would love to trade the liriope for the 'twist of lime' hosta, so I am confirming that for you. If you have lots, and could spare another one, then I would love another for the larger hosta if you want to do that. (No worries if you can't :))I will try and borrow my daughter's camera later on tonight and see if I can send you a pic of it.

Thanks for the list of food, Jeff. Do you have any idea how many of us there will be? If there are going to be lots then I would bring more hot dogs, but if not then I may lean toward drinks and some munchies.not sure though, so will give it more thought.

ROSS--I have confirmed my WS rudbeckia cappuccino for your hosta blue cadet, but did you see my message above regarding your variegated sedum, lunaria and agapanthus?

SIGNET--My daughter tells me that the batteries need replacing in her camera! GGGGRRR!! I need to get my own! :)
The hosta seems like a pretty common one. I would imagine that it is any way. It has bright green wrinkled leaves. My mom had it for years before I got a piece and now mine is fairly old.

I have separated a sanguisorba from the mother plant for you . I also have 4 gooseberry/currant bush volunteers ( good size) if you are interested . It is a little difficult to tell currant from gooseberry when they are small plants however I am going to say best guess from check the leaves that there is two of each .

Anyway if you are interested I would trade you for the rogersia , mirabilis Limelight and I was wondering if you would have any blue bells available ...I know they are not on your trade list. The ones I traded with you from before didnt survive and I would love to try again . Let me know please if you are interested in these .

Hi Heather/Blueiris: excellent! You sowed the seeds I forgot to sow! You can have four Ceanothus for a few Cleomes and Bellis

Hi Barb/Signet: Deal. Sanguisorba and gooseberry/currant seedlings for Rogersia and 2 Mirabilis limelight. We'll need some really warm weather for these to fatten up before June 14th. Nothing is dying, but nothing is growing… Oh, and I don't have any bluebells. I somehow never got these established. Heather/Blueiris had some seeds for Texas Bluebonnets—don't know if they ever became seedlings.

Merja/Flowergirl: okay, you get Digitalis obscura and I'll have some of your Cleome volunteers.

Adding to my available list:

- lots of tiny tree seedlings: Sycamore, collected in Calton Swamp, near Tillsonburg
- a pot three small seedlings of Cotoneaster repens

SIGNET--I will look tomorrow and see if there are any babies of the Russian sage.

I would like to add a couple of things ot my trade list.

One is a passionflower that I grew from seed started in March. It is approx 10-11 inches tall right now .

the second is a cutting taken yesterday of a plectranthus 'mona lavender' plant that was sent to me by a very generous member of GW. I rooted the two cuttings sent to me and now they are large enough to take a cutting so I have to offer 'one cutting--unrooted for now but it is in a pot. I was so happy to get this plant so it is kind of special to me. do you have something a bit different and special that you would like to trade for it?

RE: Plectranthus

Hi Greylady,

It's so hard to say if I have anything special or different to trade for your plectranthus. Special or different can mean different things to different people ...so what I might consider special or different perhaps is common in your estimation. What might you consider special or different? I just might have some ...or what would you like in trade if you had your d'ruthers? Let some suggestions fly and I will see if I have something that you might like for it .

Nyssaman : THANK YOU SO MUCH ! I have wanted this plant Leonotis leonuris for a very long time . Never thought I would get one in a trade. What am I trading you for it ?

Signet


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Swap/Barbecue London/Springbank Park

Hi Heather, I didn't mean to make you feel that I was talking directly to you and making you feel obligated to consider this particular plant. :)After all, you are right, and everyone has different ideas about what is special and you may not think the plectranthus 'mona lavender' is as great as I do.;-) I just reread it and it does sound like I was targeting you, so I hope you don't feel uncomfortable and like you have to find something to trade for the plant. The first part about the russian sage was for you. The next part about the 'special trade' was just thrown out there for anyone who might know the plant and want it as much as I did, or see the plant on the link and then decide that they would like it. I guess I rambled on about it(then and now-ha ha) because I had mixed feelings about letting any part of it go after looking for it for so long, but would if someone let me know that they really wanted it and/or had been looking for it for a while like I had been.
I will leave it that if you want the plant, just please forget what I said in the original post and treat it like any other offer, and forgive my ramblings....If you don't want the plant that is okay too. It will still be on my trade list. I must have been too tired to post, and should have been in bed. LOL!
