I have lots of Lemon Grass at the moment, already potted up.
And I've started some Plumeria, Epiphyllum Pumilum and Oxpetalum cuttings.

I have some full grown Azaela and Nandina shrubs that I no longer want. You'll have to dig.

As things return from the freeze, I'll post more.

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

When are you guys meeting? Anyone going from Temple Terrace neighborhood? ( I do not always have the car!)

Thank you


 o
My list

If I can figure out a way to get to the swap, I can start roses...

I have two rose bushes that grow like crazy. Mutabilis and (possible) Louis Philippe, both ideal roses for our climates

I have a lot of large seedlings of Lakeview Jasmine

I have 1 (ONE) big seedling of Yesterday Today Tomorrow

One or two blue flag iris plants

Quite a few seedlings (established, nice size) of Brazilian walking blue iris

Probably can start a few begonias - and always looking for some I do not have

Possibly tomato or eggplant seedlings. I am starting new ones. I am having very good success with large cherry type tomatoes

Blackberry lilies, seedlings

Can start star jasmine - mine is growing like crazy, very happy healthy plants. And also have Sambac jasmine I could start

I could probably think of more :)


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

totally and completely off topic...but does anyone coming to the swap want any wallpaper sample books? I have a bunch I don't want and before I toss them I thought I'd offer them to crafters or anyone else interested.

I have 2 trays of Blood Leaf to bring, it was next to the Coleus that froze but it didn't freeze it just singed a bit on top, so this indicates it can take some cold... also some Hens and Chickens, also some cuttings of Mulberry, if anyone wants it.... the birds love it and I keep it low and tie the whips down so I can reach the berries as well.... and I plan on stopping in Publix and getting some cookies, and other decadent stuff guaranteed to not be fattening.... Tom is going to guide us, my DIL is going to drive me she is also into gardening... I can also bring some fern if anybody is interested, also Purple Queen also Oyster Plant, if anyone wants this let me know and I'll bring more....... sally

Hi folks,

Tom here....

I'll have are some plumeria sticks; Intense Rainbow, Jeannie Moragne, Aztec Gold and NOID pink and white.

Photobucket

I'll also be bringing more Mahoi Dwarf Cavendish banana pups.

I can bring a plethera of veggie seeds, I have tons of different Ice Box watermelon seeds, and several different green variety cantaloupe seeds if anyone is any interested.

For those with a truck or trailer, some of my veggie arbors (not the trellises) and T-post could also be yours, they are taking up just too much space in my little 575SF backyard garden. Please drop me a line if your interested in a few of these, otherwise I won't bring any of them.

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Stonecrabber, could I interest you in anything in exchange for a "Bambusa multiplex 'Alphonse Karr'?

Kay, thank you for your offer. Are you interested in Mutabilis rose? It is a single, but a beautiful rose that grows so well in Florida

http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=5on&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&q=mutabilis&aql=&oq=&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

Okay Keiki, do you have a pickup truck? There's no way otherwise....

BTW, I'll bring cut up pineapple again this year, and maybe some cut up navel oranges if I can get some that I like.

Tom


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Regarding food...Olya....I do not have any tables for people to sit at. I have some concrete benches scattered around and a few lawn chairs with end tables. So it would be best to bring finger foods that do not require someone to sit with a plate and a fork. I will provide dishes, but it will be awkward to eat. Finger foods like sandwhiches, fruit slices, desserts, etc. will allow people to grab and still move around.
Lori


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Tom we do have a pick up but I was hoping it would fit in my altima. The trunk is huge and the seats fold down. What size is the trellis? What can I bring for you??? I know I have lots of stuff out there.

Olya I have a rarer variegated crinium with white flowers if your interested.

Lori which orchids did I give you that you lost? I might be able to replace them? I will bring some fruit.

HAVE to trade:

necklace pod
1000 finger banana
raja puri banana
ladyfinger banana
ice cream banana
sugar apple (rooting should be ready)
elkhorn fern
variegated crinium lily (only a couple)
pink rainlily
water lily colorado
phillipine violet
pink salvia
vanda teres
will add more later

I like:
orchids
edibles
roses
butterfly plants
hoya
anything beautiful or edible that I don't have :0)


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Lori, got it - will think of "Russian" finger food

Keiki, yes, very interested!
My dendrobium hercoglossum is making keikis- the plant is almost a miniature but if it has keiki ready to separate I will bring some for you, if interested?


 o
food

I can make Russian sweet rolls (similar to cinnamon rolls) How is that for finger food?


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Keiki-I'm giving up on orchids. It was so much work this winter bringing them in and then back out, and the mess when doing so, that I see it's time to start downsizing. I left them out for the last cold snap, just couldn't find the energy or time to drag them all inside again. So no more orchids for me. But would love the Elkhorn!

Olya-sweet rolls sound perfect!
Lori


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

As a "newbie" I don't have a lot to bring. I have started some Four o'clocks and I have rooted cuttings of Elephant Bush, and I have some umbrella grass starts. I also have an unused soaker hose and some other odds and ends. My yard is pretty empty so I will take anything I can get. Lori, I would like cuttings of your Epiphyllum Pumilum and Oxpetalum. Tom, I would like one of your Mahoi Dwarf Cavendish banana pups. Keiki, I would also like one of your banana pups, which ever one you like the best. I am really interested in everything and looking forward to putting faces to all of you I follow on the blog. My wife and I will bring some type of finger food and soda.


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Olya that would be lovely I love dendrobiums!

Lori will pot up some and put your name on it.

Billehighacres I will have a few with me but I think you will probably like the ice cream. It does really well in our area and the taste is creamy and sweet.


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Keiki, could I get a vanda teres and a water lily colorado from you at the swap?
Bill


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

I went through the yard yesterday looking for things to swap. Front yard is fine, so I have leather leaf ferns and liriope and painted fingernail bromeliads in large quantities.

Back yard is where my tenders were and things are either still brown or barely above ground at this time. Not sure if they'll even be big enough to take cuttings of by swap time.

I have two plantlets of Chirita Aiko.
Small rooted plants of Epiphyllum Montrose and Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa and Rhipsalis micrantha. Also the Epiphyllum oxypetalum and pumilum already mentioned.

*****Laura1 and I are driving up to Smoley's this week. He's succulents and Epiphyllums. If you want me to get you anything, drop me a line. You can pick it up at the swap.

I lost almost all my episcia's so am looking for them again.

I'm also looking for a fern that would do well in a hanging basket. I have one empty basket that needs a plant. Have wart, rabbit's foot and silver lace in other baskets.

Would like some pink honeysuckle.

Lori

Here is a link that might be useful: Smoley's


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Keiki, I sent you a message via email


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Would anyone be interested in stone crab claws ?

I can bring some crab to the swap and offer it
in trade for plants.


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Lori, have you ever grown REBUTIA? I saw this cutest thing on Smoley's website and wonder how well it grows here. What a beautiful plant


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Olya I am interested in your ytt if its not spoken for. What else can I save or offer you?

Lori I would love to try a charita again but will need some growing tips. I might have a few stolens of espicia pink smoke if it continues to improve as winter was hard on it.

Stoncrabber sent you an email but in case you didn't get it - yes that sounds good.

Bill I have you down for an ice cream banana, vanda teres and the water lily. What other odds and ends are you bringing?


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Keiki, YYT is yours. Makes a beautiful bush, you will love it! If you have any begonias, or ferns, I would love some cuttings. Or, if you have any left over water lily colorado or vanda teres, I would love that. Otherwise, no worries - YYT is yours regardless :)


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

I may have missed something, has there been a date set yet?
Let us know, would like to attend depending on the date.

Agent for Hillsborough Co. was there and spoke...also another gal from north Fla. with over 900 roses to tend spoke....... they are going to have their next meeting here in St Pete, the second Sunday of the month, at a Member's house... if any of you folks are into roses this is a great group to join, at only $15. per year it is CHEAP, they also have a raffle and I brought home a 3 gal. pot with the Polyantha "The Fairy", own-root, so I will put it into a big pot...... they also had a 'cookie-time' after the meeting and I had some finger-treats that gave me an idea what to bring to the swap-meet, little bites of pastry with whipped-cream filling... delish.. the gal got them at Publix.......how does that sound ?. ..... sally


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Keiki, since you mentioned water plants...do you by chance have any lotus to trade? I have the yellow lotus (no name)...


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Stonecrabber, do you have any bambusa that hasn't already been spoken for? I'd love to have some.

Olyagrove, I'll be bringing some forsythia salvia as well as beach sunflowers.

Kay, how much liriope do you want? We have a bunch that's in need of a new home. I'd love to have one of you purple firespikes.

Keiki, if you still have any variegated crinums unspoken for I'd love to have one.

If I don't have any plants that your interested in I do make glass garden totems. Just let me know what size and color totem you'd prefer. Here's an example.

 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Terry/Rosehip---April 17 check the reg. Fl Gardening thread for all the info.

Karalynn--I have bamboo if he doesn't. And I'd love a cutting or two of the pagoda. I have a pond with some freeze damaged hyacinth if you're interested. And a couple old books on starting ponds.

Keiki-earmarking a chirita plantlet for you. Also have some freeze damaged orchids I'm giving up on.

Bill-gotcha covered on the epies.

I found some old gardening books I'm going to put out. Also a bunch of terracotta pots.

****Could someone bring some drinks? I'll bring water, ice, cups, and someone else offered soda. I don't know what everyone drinks, but maybe some ice tea or such? You tell me.
Lori


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Karalynn,
I'll have a bamboo with your name on it.
Can I get some forsythia salvia and pineapple sage.
I'd also like to swap some of my crinums for one of
your milk and wine crinums. I have two different kinds
'Ellen Bosanquet' and amabile.

Lori,
I can bring soda and ice tea.

Someone posted they had a million or so plastic pots.
I'd be interested in a few of those if there not
spoken for.


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

I need to jump in here.
Already have a trade with Tom - vine for a plumeria
keiki, I'd love to trade for a variegated crinium lily.
I grow flowering and fragrant plants.
Hopefully I will bring something you'd like to have.
Who brought the red salvia last year?
I would sure like another one.
Can't wait.........cheryl


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Cheryl, could I get a cutting of that lovely vine you posted a picture for some time ago?

I have a few water plants, I will see what is awake and can be dug out. I do have blue flag iris - but it gets big

If anyone has leftovers bamboo clumping, I would love to trade for that.

Karalynn, can I trade for monarda ? Thank you

I have lot of pink and red sage - reseeds and grows well, if anyone is interested. I really like the plant!


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Thanks, Lori. I'll take any bamboo as long as it's clumping. I dream of one day having a bamboo hedge between my neighbors yard and my back garden, not that they're bad neighbors I'd just like a little privacy. I'll bring as many pagoda plants as you'd like, my parents are thinning theirs this year. The pond books would be wonderful. I'll also bring some lemonade and some of the plates, napkins, and such that were leftover from the swap I hosted last year.

Stonecrabber, thanks for the bamboo and I'll be sure to bring all three of the plants you want. What does amabile look like?

Olyagrove, I'll make sure to bring several monardas with me.

Would anyone be interested in a small chaste tree?


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Olyagrove,
I'll bring a bamboo for you.
I'd like to get some of your begonias please.

karalynn,
I'm not the most computer literate person, so
I'm sure how to post a link to a pic. If you do google
image search for 'crinum amabile' you'll find a pic.
I also sent you an email about your 'totems'


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

I'd like to get some of your begonias please.

Haves:

We're going to put in a Butterfly Garden so I have a lot of mature Monkey Grass to remove, see pictures here if you're interested.

Wants:

Lori - I may take some of your azaelas

Kay - I'd like some of your purple fire spike and some candlestick cassia seeds.

Olya - I'd like some Mexican Cosmos if you have some to spare

Stonecrabber - I'd like to buy some stonecrabs! I'll bring a cooler :-)

Kara - I want some Beach Sunflower too

Cheryl - I've got your JM plumies set aside :-)

Tom


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

To, I will have Mexican Cosmos planted up for you. I love the plant - even though it reseeds well, it has never become a nuisance.

More HAVEs:
I have one (or two) rooted grape cuttings ready go be planted. I ordered the cuttings two years ago from the UC Davis repository and all rooted, and I do not have room for so many :) The cuttings have been rooted last year and ready to be out of the pot. They will need room, full sun, support for the vine, and soil amendment.

I can root Tithonia diversifolia, Giant Mexican Sunflower
(http://floridagardener.com/pom/tithonia.htm) if anyone is interested

Anyone interested in Giant Walking iris? Neomarica caerulea 'Regina'. I have rooted pups

*****************
Does anyone have Black Magic taro bulbs/divisions to share?

Also, looking for pots bigger than 5 gallon. Will gladly trade with a gazillion of 3 gal and smaller pots.
Also, if anyone wants 3 gal and 1 gal empty pots, please let me know. I have a bunch


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Olyagrove,
I'd like to get a pup or two of the Giant Walking iris Neomarica caerulea 'Regina'.

I have some black magic taro, BUT they haven't resprouted yet
so they may not have made it through the winter. If they
sprout I'll bring a couple.


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Stonecrabber, thank you. Will have the iris for you

Ok, I walked around the garden to see what else I have.
I have a lot of pink Four O'Clock, both seedlings and tubers.
http://www.floridata.com/ref/M/mira_jal.cfm
Plant it as your own risk, as it responds a bit too well to love and care. I have one that never thrived in sandy soil. The one I put in the rose garden had to be moved, as the plant was getting bigger than roses. If you have a good spot where it is not going to compete with other plants, it is a very neat plant - lots of cute pink very fragrant blooms in the afternoon and evening.

I have one plant of Scutellaria (dark blue). I already have it potted up and ready to go. Adorable little plant, the mother plant originally from Lowes/HomeDepot. Grows very well in partial shade (although full sun is recommended, I had to move it to a more sheltered location)

Another interesting plant: Aster carolinianus

From Backyard Fall 2007

Not for every garden. It is a bog plant and likes moist soil. It only blooms once a year, but when it does, it puts up an unbelievable show - bees and butterflies are all over it. I love it (and have plenty of seedlings as it reseeds rather well)
More info:

And I have this beautiful orange blooming bush, and I just cant remember its name, and do not have any pictures of the blooms. I will keep looking


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Olya I can bring the lotus and or water lily. The lotus is momo botan and the water lily is colorado both are some of my favorite plants. The lotus has huge round leaves and pink blooms that stand up about 4' above the water. The lily has leaves that stand up above the water unlike many lilys but not as high as the lotus leaves do. The flower is a lovely peachy pink. FYI I have that aster in a dry spot in my yard and it thrives I think they are less picky than people think.

I am going to try to dig/divide more of the variegated crinium this week for the trade. Will earmark one for Cheryl and Karalynn.

Karalynn if I can bring you a crinium I am interested in your forsythia sage, mine went down this winter and hasn't returned. I am also interested in the monarda.

I will be able to bring a few more things like a black leaved begonia, black elephant ears, and a lady of the night baby.

Does anyone have any rooted old roses that don't get huge?


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap

Karalynn forgot to mention I have parrots feather for your pond if you like.


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Keiki, thank you so much
I hate to keep asking you - if you have a lot of parrots feathers or black elephant ears, may I ask for some?

I do have a big keiki of phal pulchra I was ready to mount - if you do not have this species, I will gladly bring it to your. Let me know :)

Here is the mom plant, and you can see two keikis on the bottom. One already attached itself to the totem, but not the other one.Both keikis already bloomed

From Orchids August 2009


 o
more

Keiki, most of my antique roses are big roses. I did start Mutabilis and Louis Philippe (OR, Cramoisi Superieur).

If anyone is interested, I have Old Blush (gets big, but such a care free rose) and just remembered, a smaller one, Natchitoches Noisette.

I also have a cute small rose that I personally like, but it is not the most impressive rose. I think the closest ID to it is Martha's vineyard rose
http://www.aquamarinestardust.net/images/photos/Martha%27s Vineyard.jpg
The flowers are small and not fragrant, but I love the show it puts up during blooming.

Here is the picture of mine

From Roses Spring 2009

All the roses I mentioned root well for me.

I also have seedlings sweet peppers - and can bring a few with me - by the time of the swap, they will get much bigger (sprouted about a week ago, a whole bunch)

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Stonecrabber yes its brunsfelsia americana, I will put your name on it.

Tom if you are starting a butterfly garden would you like some porterweed? I can pot a few if anyone wants some.

If I am bringing you a water plant please bring something to take it home in. I will be bringing them in a cooler. Also if you are interested in my bananas I will be bringing them bare root dug the evening before. The reason I do this is they will be large and you can pop them right into your yard.

Thanks Lori, I've never tried a Brug but have an area under a huge Magnolia tree with afternoon sun for abt. 4 hours, but the ground is all roots so anything going there has to be in pots.... I have a huge potted Ginger doing well but almost everything else I had there froze, so I want to get away from trying to have to cover that area when it's cold, and I read that this type of area might suit a brug..... what do you think ? I also have a Gardenia in a large pot there doing well and a big old Azalea, but the rest of the area is waiting ........... thanks, sally

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

OK - I hope I read all the posts right.

Olya - I will definitely put your name on a forsythia sage

Karalynn - I will bring you a purple firespike

Stonecrabber - I have 3 gal. and 1 gal. pots I will be bringing lots. They are just black nursery pots.

Tom - I will have a purple firespike for you and the cassia seeds. (I would love your mature liriope if you don't decide to keep it.)

I can use all the mondo/monkey/liriope I can get so all who were planning to bring some, please do! If some other people want some I'll share, but I'm edging all of my beds with it and I can use LOTS.

I have a few items to add to what I am bringing to the swap. I don't have a lot of each but do have some rooted and unrooted cuttings as follows: A few very small succulent starts, that I think are Heuffelii, but Im not sure what kinds; Aptenia cordifolia - Baby Sun Rose both green and variegated and Swedish Ivy Plectranthus Hybrid 'Mona Lavender'.

Kgardens,
You mentioned above a ytt and clerodendrum quadriloculare.
I'm interested both of those. I've posted a few things and
will be bringing a few other things I haven't posted. Maybe
we can work a swap?

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

I have one Blue Sage (Eranthemum pulchellum), rooted, growing next to mom-plant.

I can bring a few divisions/rooted shoots of the plant that looks similar to this:

Hamelia Patens
-- Unfortunately, I cannot find the name of mine. It is a shrubby plant, blooms with orange trumpet looking flowers and is a hummingbird/butterfly attractor. Somewhat sensitive to extreme cold (well, which plant wasnt) - but is back in full strength in the Spring

I will bring a few extras of Blue Giant walking iris and the regular yellow walking iris (great for shadier areas)

Please let me know if anyone is interested in the grapes - I do not want to haul it otherwise. 1 gallon plant, rooted and ready to be planted, but will need something to climb on

Anyone with a pond or bog interested in yellow native cannas? Canna flaccida. I keep it in the pond not only for pretty flowers, but for the plant's ability to act as a biological water filter. Let me know, so I can dig a few out of the pond :)

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

stonecrabber - I'll put your name on the clero and YTT. No need for a swap.

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Karalynn I was looking at your page (hope you dont mind) - lovely! I love the hose guide!!!!! When you offered the totem was something like that available? Im not much into the glass ones but the ceramic is more my style.

Bill I would like the variegated sweedish ivy if its rooted.

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

I have recently set up a display on my deck using a bunch of antique crocks and pottery that have been in my family for generations. My plan is to fill the larger ones with water, put in a few mosquito fish and add some pond/water plants. To anyone coming to the Swap with these type of plants to share, I would like some to use here.
Here's a photo:

Olya, I'd love to have somenative yellow canna!

Keiki, I don't mind at all. That ceramic hose guide was an old lamp I found in a junk shop and that was the only time I found one that I could afford to turn into a hose guide. Would tou be interested in a stone one?

Olya - I'd like to try one of those Carolina Asters, seeds would be okay if you don't want to mess with a plant.

Kay - The liriope is yours but I can't bring it to the swap, it would fill up the whole bed of my truck...we'll have to plan a day to dig it out and take it directly to your house....

Stonecrabber - I'd like to get some claws from you if possible.

Anyone have some Queen's Wreath vine cuttings or seeds? After seeing Anna's post I must have this vine!

Tom

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Tom, I will bring you aster plants - the mom plant sends out lots of shoots after she is done blooming. And then, when the young pups are done blooming, they too send out pups - so the population grows rather well :)

I have QW vine, but unfortunately, this year, due to the nasty weather, it froze to the ground :( It is finally starting to coming back from the roots and has a long way to go. Anna is , I think, a bit more south of us, so her vine did much better through the winter....

Does anyone know the name of this plant? I forgot! And does anyone have it in other colors? I particularly have been looking for blue, not sure if I will ever find it :)

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Thanks Karalyn but Ill pass. The ceramic lamp style one would have been at home in my garden. LOL I think we have similar taste.

Tom my queens wreath is blooming its head off right now, I will try to bring you a few cuttings.

Olya that is an iochroma, I have one just like that. It does come in a beautiful burgandy and a lavender.

RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Is this still on? Its very quite here and I need an address and time please.


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Keiki plaese email Lori for address. It is still on, I believe :):)


 o
RE: HAVE: Tampa Swap Want/Have List

Yes, it's still on. Tomorrow morning. You can start backing into the driveway to drop off stuff anytime after 9. We'll start when everyone's here, probably around 10. DON'T BLOCK DRIVEWAY so others can back up into it, but parking in the street is fine.

Anyone interested in ground cover junipers? My whole front bed by the street needs to go. They just aren't getting enough sun and are getting spindly. You dig.

I'm thinking of putting wedelia in there...it's totally surrounded by concrete so it won't get out of control. So if anyone has some, bring it.

Can't wait to see you all..
Lori
