Hi signet,
Sorry to not confirm your post until now - after much agonizing I decided not to offer the Congo Cockatoo in trade after all, but you're welcome to a Phytolacca claverigera seedling. Could I have another of your tomatoes in exchange?
Right now the Cockatoo is just a stick with a few leaves on the end, but once it sends out some side shoots (which I'm hoping it will), I'll take a cutting for you if you like. At this point I'm afraid of losing the plant if I top it off - I've never seen a growth habit like this on an Impatiens before.

Hi Jeff: I'm happy to get three Leonotis Leonurus seedlings if Signet is happy with one. Would you be okay with the following in trade: Penstemon barbatus, Ipomopsis (Scarlet Gillia), and Ceanothus americanus?

Hi Heather/Signet: sorry for name mixup in my previous post. I think it was almost midnight and I had you mixed up with Barb from London. Ugh. Something that looks like bluebells just bloomed beside the rain barrel. These aren't the Virginia Bluebells but the common Spanish/non scripta type. I can probably separate out a couple of little bulbs from the clump. I'll add this to the trade. Btw, the Kingspear you gave me at last year's swap was doing fine right through that warm spell in April. Then came the three-week deluge, and it didn't survive the wet and cold. Very sad.

Hi Heather/BlueIris: Yayeee! The Chaste Tree is NOT DEAD. All it needed was a hot day like today. There is very little dieback, and I could probably take a cutting or two this week. So I'll add that to the trade.

Reposting my updated available list:

Achillia "cassis"
* Agapanthus seedlings (mystery cross of Loch Hope, perfectly hardy)
Agastache "tutti frutti" (set of 2)
Asclepias incarnata "Soulmate" 1 pot of 4 small seedlings
Carthamus (Safflower) set of 3 small seedlings
*Cdn. wild ginger (1 piece)
*Cercocarpus montanus (Mountain mahogany) (1 small)
Digitalis carillon (set of 3 small)
Fibigia clypeata (Roman Shields) (2)
Ipomopsis rubra (scarlet gillia) lots of volunteers
Linum Perennial flax "Sapphire" (set of 4 small)
Morning Glory dark blue set of 3
Petunia, old fashioned climbing (6 seedlings)
* Purshia tridentata 2 small seedlings
Rudbeckia "Irish Eyes" 1 med. size
Santolina 1 x 4" pot
Silybum 1 med.
Stocks (set of 3)
Verbascum probably from "Banana Custard" (set of 3)

* means special-- only for something from my wish list

Wish list:

Arenaria/sandwort (white)
Camassia
Centranthus (red valerian / Jupiters beard)
Ceratostigma (any, hardy)
Liatris (any, divison, not seedling)
Rosemary herb
Russian sage
Shrubs
Veronica, any pink coloured

All for now,

Bev

p.s. I am bringing "Bev's Baked Black Beans with Bacon" (many Bees, like in my garden)

RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

Thats fine G.G no problem with starting a new thread - glad you did.

Thats fine Bev 3 for 3 - With a side of baked beans and bacon.lol

Signet: I have a Congo Cockatoo for you

The Group: If Anyone is interested I have 3, will be 4 Castor bean plants Red/Pink - I grew these and knew what they were all about and just looking them up tonight freaked me out as I have a 1 and 3 year old so too be on the safe side I am trading them out.

--Maltese cross—‘chunk’
--Mignonette—‘chunk’

RE: wanted: please choose an additional plant from my list!

Hello again to everyone,

I've been looking at my winter sown seedlings and some of them are still small, so I'm hoping that everyone I'm trading with can find something else that they'd like from my list so I can give them something additional.(rosco_p, signet, capehlke, Merja, greylady-gardener, bev_w & barb_from_london (NB the tomato plants and other non winter sowed plants are a good size)) I really don't want any hard feelings because everyone is offering such great stuff. The seedlings are all healthy, it's just that they are a bit small.

I planted my 'nicotiona--only the lonely' yesterday--just before the downpour so it got a great soaking,(I should probably go out and see how beaten into the mud they are! :)) and I have lots of WS seedlings left so I am offering 'chunks' for trade.

My list doesn't seem to be getting any shorter so I have a 'special' on this week!!

******TWO (or three :)) FOR ONE DEAL!!******
please pick two (or three) plants from my list for one of your plants from your list.

***FOOD*** I have decided to bring another package of weiners and buns to add to the ones that Ross is bringing. I will also bring a cooler of ice with cans of pop in it.
--Signet brought up something that I had also been thinking about, so may I suggest that we share the condiments? I would be willing to bring onions and mustard,(because my DH is coming with me and those are his 'must haves :)) Do others want to share the relish, ketchup or anything else that they like to have? What do you all think of doing that?-please post if you are bringing a condiment so that we can see what is coming, so we know if we have what we need.

SIGNET & BEV---please let me know if you are still interested in the Russian sage that I mentioned in my post from yesterday. The babies are each about 10-12" tall.

Well I think that is it for the moment, but let's get trading and get these plants moving! :)

Hi again all,

Well that storm yesterday finally took down that tree it tore apart last year just before the swap ..hmmm do these storms have a psychic link to the swap I wonder !

This year the storm ripped it up by its roots.I just love the weather around here. Also I appear to be losing all my elm trees to some strange disease or bug . I lost a whole arm of one last year the tree grew from the base in a V shape and we lost one whole side of the V and this year the other part of the V came out beautifully , and now is dying before my eyes. I am so sick about this .

So I am looking for some trees to replace these .

Preferably fast growers so if anyone has any suggestions or seedlings I am interested!!!!!!!!!!!! Does anyone have any Mountain Ash? the one with the orange berries or does anyone have any seeds for Mountain Ash ?

Well, it seems I missed responding to Barb in London's post about the Congo Cockatoo and Greylady's post about the Russian Sage . So I would just like to say to Barb " Hey , dont worry about it ! " and to GreyLady " I would love the Russian sage seedling please ! How about a piece of Hosta Minnie Klopping in trade ?

I also have one baby "Cyperus alternifolius" Papyrus plant potted (about 4 inches tall and two stalks)grows to about 14 inches tall and two baby giant Cyperus Papyrus grows to about 24 inches tall .These are possible to grow as indoor plants as they are not hardy ...I bring mine in every year . Just need to keep them wet and in bright light .

Rosco_P I would love to trade for some of your Yellow noid daylilies. Please is there anything you would consider in trade ( How about another daylily only this time a varigated green and white leaf ( double orange ) ?

Bev , would you be willing to trade Agapanthus seedlings (mystery cross of Loch Hope, perfectly hardy) for another currant /gooseberry bush ? or Sycamore tree seedlings? Let me know please

Blue Iris what can I trade you for your potted rose bush ?

Mikedahms I would be interested in your Asclepias curassivica plant, just putting out new growth. Can we figure out a trade ?

I have been trying to post this message since noon it is now 4:18 p.m. My wireless internet connection is the pits due to wind ?????????I dont know but very frustrating .

That's it for now

**SIGNET***Hi Heather, I would love a piece of 'Minnie Klopping' for the Russian sage. thanks!
I have a small tree that I potted up last summer when I found it and a couple of others that I will dig up for you if you want them. None of them are big, but I have noticed a few of them (maybe three or four) around the yard. I do have one that I wondered if it was a mountain ash, as it is in my yard near the MA that my neighbour has in her yard. I had some MA seeds that I WS this year, but so far they are a 'no show'. You can let me know if you are interested in any that I find.

The musa pup or tomato are yours ...whichever you prefer and Yes please to the phytolacca clavigera seedling . How about a musa pup for the ginko ( it is a very small pup!) and a tomato for the phytolacca ? Thanks !

Hope I can fit all this stuff into my truck !

RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

Heather you can have the Asclepias curassivica but if you do have Brugmansia Snowbank the variegated Brug that Parkway gardens sells I would love a cutting. I will also ask my sister if she is looking for anything because I think she is looking for Hosta divisions and it might be a better idea for to choose something instead of me. I will have to get back to you.

Hi Heather
I do realize that --see you said so in your post! :)

"I also have one baby "Cyperus alternifolius" Papyrus plant potted (about 4 inches tall and two stalks"

I am okay with it...no problem. I just came in out of the rain (the usual rain that happens on my day off!) from digging up some trees and other things that I have to bring on Saturday.

Gloriosa daisy
Rudbeckia triloba (biennial)

Shasta daisy
Hardy Geranium, hot pink
Leopard's Bane
Gaillardia 'Golden Goblin'
Malva, pink
Digitalis purpurea 'Snow Thimble' seedlings (small)
Yellow historical iris
Mini tan iris with light blue beard
Mauve/pink historical iris
Campanula glomerata, white (Clustered bellflower)
Ladybells
Walking onion
Catnip

NEW:

Columbine, purple (3)

Sorry but I dont have Snowbank ( I used to , but it died) the one I have is Snowcone - regular green leaf . Did I write Snowbank ? If I did, I meant to write Snowcone. If possible to let me know about the hostas, as I am not at home tomorrow or Thursday and I would like to get digging and potting up done today if possible.

re: directions to swap!!!!!!!

HI Everyone I went into Springbank park today to find a location - I found 2 - the second one is a back up . Via 402 or 401 Heading north on (Wonderland rd. south) you are going north until you reach (Commissioners rd west) - Turn left on Commissioners rd West( you will see Channer's Clothiers).After turning left head about 2.5 km Go down the hill and through the lights - you can see springbank park to the left. At the next set of lights turn north into the park (north st. intersection)you are now in the park at the first stop sign (storybook lane) you will turn left. The first location is 0.2km on the left it has 3 large picnic tables and a stone building we can get shelter in if it rains (it is close so we can easily load and unload plants). I have picked a second location just in case - the park can get very busy. The second location is another 0.4km - this time on the right side there are 2 large picnic tables close to the road (Storybook lane)in amongst red pines. For those coming from out of town you are going (NORTH ON WONDERLAND RD. SOUTH)- not south .

Sidenotes - 401 traffic take 402 exit onto 402 >> then take Wonderland rd south exit > NORTH!!!! - 5KM estimate until you reach commissioners rd west - 7 sets of lights

- 402 Traffic Take Wonderland Rd south Exit > NORTH!!!! - 5KM estimate until you reach commissioners rd west - 7 sets of lights.

Hi Jeff
Will you be able to be there fairly early in order to put up a sign so that we will be able to find the area easily? If not then I could try and be there as early as I can, but am not sure that I would have the right place. :)
If not a sign then maybe some balloons of a certain colour or something just to 'mark the spot'

RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

Looking at the weather it looks like it will be a rain event - with 80% chance of precipitation that day - I was thinking I would try to be there at 9AM just to make sure we get our first choice area that has a covered shelter if anyone else would like to be there a little earlier to keep me company that would be great - It would be wise to dig out your rain coat for the event just so everyone is comfortable and stays dry - I was really hoping for a dry event - I don't know how these forecasters go from a nice sunny day of 26'c to a krap rainy day overnight..lol - Yes I will make a sign or some balloons to mark the spot.

PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

Okay --really hoping that the weather forecast will change. It probably will about a dozen times before Saturday. :)

Jeff, what is that building that you mentioned? If it the one I am thinking about, then I think it is a washroom. I am not sure though. If I get your directions, then the area you have picked out is not far from a pavillion and if it isn't being used, then maybe we could run there if it starts to rain heavily....or jump in our vehicles! :)
I went looking for an "emergency rain poncho" that I bought several years ago. I hope I don't have to use it but I will at least be prepared. I am not sure where I got it, but I think they sell something similar at dollar stores.

Don't forget to bring a chair to sit on, everybody. I'm sure you probably all thought of that already, but I just thought of it tonight, so for anyone that is like me and hadn't thought of it yet, then that reminder is for you. :)
gg


 o
RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

The pavillion will be too far to transport everyones plants from the road - I'm not moving my plants any farther than I have too (my trunk to the ground basically). This is a little stone buiding with ten feet of shelter (if it rains too heavily) and cover all the way around it with tables to boot they are only calling for 40% anyways so the whole day should not be a rain out - I didn't see a washroom there but that does not mean there isn't one..lol. I'm a little ticked tonight I just found out I'm getting sued for 1400 bucks to replace a carpet that was in excellent condition at the last place I rented at - They say they replace the carpet every 6 years and the carpet is 4.5 years old ( they got almost $30000 rent from us in 3.5 years ( we even steam cleaned this carpet professionally before we moved out )- it seems they say my dog left an odor - I know many people that have rented from this place and most have the same horror story. It will appear that I will be calling my lawyer in the morning.

I was unable to get in touch with my sister today so I am unsure if she is still looking for a Hosta division. I would love a cutting of your Vancouver centennial Geranium if you still have one. I was just hoping that you had a Brugmansia Snowbank and thought I would ask you had not mentioned it. I gave mine to a family member when I moved but they lost it last winter.

 o
RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

Hi Capehlke,

Does your Japanese iris flower for you? I tried it once and it didn't flower for me the first year and the year after that it didn't come up at all. If yours flowers for you I would be willing to try it again. I am interested in colourful big flowers and:
- lily (any I don't have)
- white Monk's-hood
- most Bellflowers I don't have
- Delphinium (I have oily blue and white)
- Columbine, McKana Giants, Nora Barlow, showy ones...
- Chionodoxa luciliae
- Cosmos 'Double Click' or something different
- spring bulbs (showy ones I don't have)
- most digitalis I don't have (have purple and white ones)

If you have something else I might like, let me know. I could bring you LA Hybrid lily 'Iceberg', pink lilies (small) and tiger lilies (babies, only 1 leaf). I don't have 'Black Cherry' tomato, I am getting it from Signet. But I have tomatoes 'Sweet Million' and 'Round Lemon', if interested.

SIGNET/HEATHER: Do I remember you offering real Solomon's Seal once (not the false one)? If you have it available I would be willing to take it instead of geranium 'Vancouver Centennial' so you can give it to Mike.

Hi Merja,

I will dig a division of Solomon's seal for you but I have already taken a cutting of geranium 'Vancouver Centennial' for Mike about 2 hours ago. So I will still give him the cutting and you can keep yours. How about we trade Solomons seal for your black and white Columbine.

Capehlke:
I have got you a small toad lily and a small Heuchera division and allium bulbs.

If you would like to trade a Black Cherry tomato for Japanese Iris or Blue perennial Salvia Nemorosa "Blue Queen" I would be interested in doing that . Are you interested ?

GreyLady: The hosta with the spoon shaped leaves is Golden Tiara

Mikedahms : if your sister is not coming , and you need a ride to transport your stuff .....I can drop my stuff off and pick you and your stuff up if you like . I will be driving my truck so lots of room to put plants.

**CAPEHLKE**--I had e-mailed you through GW around the time that you first posted and had asked for something that I have since been able to find from two others, so am very happy about that and thank you anyway. :) BUT :) would you still have any of the 'miniature iris-purple with white beard'? If so could you please look and see if I have something that you would like in trade?

**BEV**--Is there something that I could give you for your achillea cassis (if you still have it)? Please look at my trade list and let me know. I do still have a Russian sage seedling (one stem approx 10" tall), if you are still interested.

RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

GreyLady - Sorry I don't have any more of the the minature iris-purple/white

Signet - I'm confirming the trade for the Salvia. Thanks you for the tomato

Heather P - Thank-you for the Nana. Unfortunately I think I only have the one trade of the salvia. When I dig it up for Signet, if there's any addiitonal pieces that break off I'll set them aside for you even if they're small - no trade necessary.

Merja - my japanese iris flowers profusely and also multiply quickly. I wonder if it's because it's blue and bears more resemblance to the wild variety than some of the newer fancier hybrids? I know my 'old fashioned blue' bearded iris definitely flower more than my specialty hybrids. I can bring some of the Japanese iris for you and I can also bring you some digitalis volunteer seedlings. The digitalis was pink last year so assuming they grow true to parent, you should have pink offspring. They're not big but they should grow enough this year to flower next year. Thanks for the trades.

Rosco_p ...I'm wondering if you have any of the variegated sedum left?

Hi all,

I am getting excited about tomorrow! I dont have to host! Yay! I get to mingle LOL ! Life is good !

Mikedahms: No problem picking you up . I will go to springbank and drop off my stuff and then go get you and your stuff. I just have to head back on commissioners from springbank either up Sanitorium road and out to Oxford and I am already half way there .

I think you mentioned you were near UWO so that is not that much farther north . So you will need to email me with your address and instructions on how to get there from Oxford street. we will also need to determine a time ( and I will do my best to be there for that time ....always necessary to give me a little leeway for traffic but that should be it )

If Swap starts at 11:00 I will try to be at springbank to drop my stuff off around 10 or if it starts at 12 I will try to be there around 11 ( I'll ask Jeff to watch it since he says he will be there early Would you do that for me Jeff?) and then head off to get you . You will need to watch for an old lady in an old white Mazda truck LOL !

Jeff we really need to know the exact start time please!

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful trades! I say this now in case I forget to thank everyone in person tomorrow .

I really look forward to the swaps every spring.....and I really really appreciate Jeff taking up the organizing end of it this year .

So a HUGE BIG THANK YOU TO YOU JEFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

I just needed a break from that part this year as I have so much to do here it isnt funny and it's not all done yet unfortunately .

Thanks Capehlke for the trade of Salvia for Black Cherry tomato.

Merja: I just tried digging the pink and white lily , It came upbut the bulb didnt ( I have no idea how far down that damn bulb is as I dug down a foot and a half and didnt find it ! I didnt know much about gardening when I started 10 or so years ago and I guess I planted way too deep )

The plant itsent has plenty of feeder roots and I have potted it up for you but I dont know if it will survive. So very sorry ! I have dug two different daylilies to compensate one is a mini rusty spider and the other is an unknown that I got in a trade from someone here on GW a few years ago. I am only going to see it bloom myself for the first time this year. Anyway , I will do my best to try to find you a pink and white lily this season ( there is a place down the road from me that I want to visit that may have them ). I think it is called Stargazer so I will search one out for you. I have also included some baby lily bulbs from a lily called Denia a pretty pink lily with spots ( I will bring the pics of the two sets of baby lily bulbs so you can see what they look like . Again my apologies about this !

That's all for now

Jeff thanks for clearing up the start time . The confusion stemmed from acouple of different emails in the original page of posts .

I initially asked for an 11 oclock start so that I could ease into the day In the fourth messsage you said "Thanks Heather lets make it noon on Saturday" Then Capehlke wrote "So we're saying SATURDAY, JUNE 14TH, 11AM then?" then you wrote " The day of the Swap will be Saturday June 14th The time of the Swap will be 11AM until 3PM - 4 ish . Thus the confusion . So now we know it is a confirmed 11 a.m. start

I swear I updated my last post . Wonder where it went . Anyway last post should read that I have 2 one inch tall seedlings of Yvonne's Salvia to trade If anyone is interested.

If you can't decide today , you can always bring the kids and Colleen over for a visit and pick something out then if you like .

Rosco_p - yes the trade of the Salvia for the Sedum would be great and I have potted one up for you accordingly.

Heather - I wasn't sure if you wanted purple or yellow Datura so I included one of each for you.

In other news I've been called into work tomorrow morning. I'm going to try to swing by early. My sister is definitely stil going and will be distributing my plants to anyone that I miss and she'll also be picking up my trades (she's wonderful!). Sorry I won't be able to see you all in person this year. I've labelled everything really clearly for her so I don't think it will be a problem.

Hi all,

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow, rain or shine.

May I suggest that we bring our seed stashes, too? It's not too late to start perennials... Plus, if it rains, we can swap seeds while eating lunch under the shelter...

Bev

HI Rosco_p, what would you take for the 1 SMALL POTTED PINK SHRUBROSE and a small BLUE CADET HOSTA DIVISION?

RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to tell you that I'll try to get to the swap after I drop the kids off at their tennis lessons, which puts my ETA at around 11:45 - 12 noonish. Mike, I'm hoping you'll still be there at that point, as I owe you some money for the Ceropegia cuttings ordered from Paul Shirley Succulents. I probably will have to leave fairly soon as I will have to rush back to the east end to pick the kids up after lessons... So I'm not likely to be staying for lunch, sorry. To recap what I'm bringing re. trades:
Rosco - Rodgersia seedling
Signet - gingko sapling, phytolacca seedling, rodgersia seedling, astilboides seedling, salmon oriental poppy division
Jeff - Astilboides tabularis
Blueiris - fernleaf peony division
Capelhke - Salmon oriental poppy division
If I forgot anyone, please email a reminder!
See you later,
Barb

SIGNET:The pink shrub rose and the small "blue cadet" hosta division are yours. If you have a small piece of yellow/purple Iris I would like that...if not that is fine. Thanks. See you tomorrow. Ross.


 o
RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

ROSS: Would you have any 'Blue Cadet' hosta letf? If so, is their anything on my list that you would like for it?

SIGNET: Don't worry about the lilies. Absolutely not necessary to go and buy a Stargazer lily for me. I'll tell you my horror stories tomorrow concerning these plants...something to do with heat and earwigs.

EVERYONE: Is everyone bringing their own plates and forks? Or is somebody bringing them? I could bring napkins since I have 'tons' of them from Costco.

FLOWERGIRL: Yes I can muster up another "BLUE CADET" hosta for you. If you have a piece of either your Gloriosa Daisy or LEOPARD BANE, it would be nice. If not don"t worry you are welcome to the hosta anyway. See you tomorrow. Ross.

I am bringing 20 plates and 20 cups - If anyone can bring a roll of tickets that they have laying around for prizes - I just went out and got a bunch of stuff from dollarama and I forgot to buy tickets %^*&%*.

Jeff

P.s Does anyone have extra tickets for prizes!!!! the kind they use at Stag and Doe's.

**signet & bev*** part 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank p

I have sad news about the Russian sage--I waited until tonight to dig them. They were each several inches away from the mother plant so I thought that they were seedlings. When I dug them they came out and it looked like they were actually sent out from the main plant. the one really had no roots and the other one had a few hairy type roots. I potted it up and it will probably get some good roots in a few weeks, but right now it looks really sad and droopy.
I wouldn't feel good about trading it, so Signet, your Minnie Klopping hosta and Bev, your achillea cassis will have to either stay home or you can look to see if there is anything else that you would take for them. Please let me know if you see anything.

I am sorry about this! :(

Grey Lady , I will take the one with no roots. Put it in a glass of water overnight to stop it from dying and if possible transport it in water tomorrow . I have rooting hormone and can dip it when I get it home tomorrow and set it up to root then. Minnie is still coming to the swap for you LOL !

Jeff, I can bring tickets. Also, I'll try to round up some labels for name tags.

Rosco, I wouldn't mind a little bit of Bears Breeches (a little bit is all you need heh heh). I'm bringing a ton of stuff and I'm sure you'll find something interesting. I'll check the board tomorrow morning if you want to name something in advance from my list...

I can bring labels for name tags if you think we need them . I have lots.

RE: wanted: PART 2-spring swap/barbecue/london/springbank park

Signet, I will do that but it may be a lost cause already. It wasn't in water for a long time as I was so disgusted with myself for ruining it, that I threw it down while I tried to get the other one potted up. It may have a slim chance though so I will bring it.
See you tomorrow.

Signet: that would be great for the name tags
Bev: that would be great for the tickets

Cheers
everyone and see you all tomorrow
