We've reached our limit so I am starting a new one.

Sunday, September 27, 9:30 am - til ?, Jupiter Farms, for directions please send me an e-mail to cherieblick@bellsouth.net, do not use the Garden Web link. So far I have only had 3 people request directions so if you sent a request to the Garden Web link and I have not responded, please resend to my e-mail address above.

We will start around 9:30 with our swapping, and will have lunch. I'm supplying some type of barbeque, pulled pork or burgers and chicken as well as all the paper goods, silverware, and soft drinks, tea, etc. Everyone should bring a side dish or dessert, please sign up for something if you have not already.

Make sure to visit the old listing to see some recent posts for plants available. I have 2 trades of White Butterfly Ginger that I just posted there but will repost here. This is very, very fragrant and a reliable bloomer, blooms most of the summer on succesive new stalks.

Cliff the blackberry lily is yours if you want it ( thanks Kristy)

Kathy , are you getting rid of the siam ruby ? I have one but I would love to put it is a second location.
As long as no one else wants it. I love it.

Cherie , I will bring the cole slaw that I took to the orchid picnic. Real easy to make. And a desert for Rita since she is my guest.
Any thing else?

BTW, does anyone have an aechmea gamosepala, lucky stripe. That's a variegated candle stick. Both Ginny and myself are looking for it. :o)


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Katkin~ I just got something very similar to that from my brother. I will look at it closer, but, you will have to go on a waiting list until it starts giving pups.

RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Would anyone have a staghorn pup or two for my friend Mike. He left his behind and now his ex-wife won't give him the one he's been nurturing for 20+ years.

I'll bring a something yummy and sweet from the oven!!


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Marion, my brother may have a pup. He's offered a small one to me before. I'll check.
Nancy, still need to know if "Nora Grant" is pink or salmon. Our HD had Dwarf pinks on sale so I got you 2 just in case.


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Coffeemom, Nora Grant is considered pink.


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I know my yard appreciated all the rain. Got some new plants over the weekend and will update my trade list later.

I'll bring fruit salad.

RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Kristy, sorry for the delay, I was out of town. You really didn't buy plants for me that you are digging out of your garden did you? If so, let me know how much. Nora Grant is the exact one I'm looking for. Thanks so much.
Cherie, that is a beautiful ginger. What kind of light do you grow yours in?
Nancy


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

All the food choices sound great.

Nancy,
That is a good question. I have it now planted in it's 3rd location and obviously was not providing enough light previously. It was in pretty heavy shade and has been creeping out into the sun more and more. The sun has also shifted and it now gets quite a bit of sun but is doing better than it ever has. I guess it finally showed me where it wanted to be planted!

The two pieces I have potted up for the swap came from spots that I had moved it from and obviously had left a little of it behind.

I was told that the white butterfly ginger wants 4 to 6 hours of sun to bloom well. :o) So most of mine gets morning sun.

Would anyone like Horse Mint? Native-- not really a mint. Has nice purple bracs (sp?).

Beverly

RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Does anyone have the ornamental grass that looks like spider plants only taller with the grayish flowers growing straight up instead of out? I have no idea what the name is?
Nancy


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Nancy, I don't have any but are you thinking of flax?

RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Kat- It was nice to see you at the Mounts sale yesterday. Yes I'd love some native mint and & I'll pot up some horsemint for you. Thanks for the info on the buntings.

Beverly


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Ginny, that isn't the one I was thinking of. The one I was wondering about looks just like a regular spider plant with white edges, only it gets both taller and wider and instead of the babies coming out the side, it has grayish colored 'flowers' going straight up.
Darn I missed the Mounts sale. I didn't realize that it was last weekend, bummer. I really need more plants, ha ha.
Nancy


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Nancy - Is it the one wanna run faster suggested - Dianella tasmanica 'Variegata' - flax lily? If so, I have that too and can bring some.

Who wanted the salmon mussaenda? I'm trying to root a couple and so far they are looking good. I can't remember who was looking for one.

Ginny


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Beverly~ It was good seeing you too, I spent wayyyy too much money!
I reviewed your list again and noticed you have inkberry. I would love one if you still have one available. I am thinking I need to have everyone over to get cuttings. I will bring you the native mint, do you want any spiderwart?

I have a very small but well rooted plant called White Gloxinia , Sinningia tubiflora.

Would aybody be interested in giving this a try ?

I saw a hummer on the 7 th. I useally don`t see them till the first week in October.

Nice , but a little strange.


 o

Kat

RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

its yours..... :)


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Ginny, it was me who was asking about the salmon musseanda. I would love a cutting if you have one.

I'm going to put together a list of what I'm bringing and whatever else I find / see lying around. I can bring fresh cuttings of kiss & tell hibiscus, snow queen & fire & ice hibiscus if anyone's interested. I have a couple of small rooted hoyas, ones a lacuonsa (sp) blooms throughout the year, wonderful vanilla - almondy scent (to me)...makes a nice house plant, also have loads of hoya australis cuttings (an aggressive grower), and a rooted green sport of Hoya KQ with peducles (currently has large pretty purple flower, little if any scent)

Anyone have a hedychium with orange or orangy-red flowers?

Helen


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

I have an abundance of magazines, Florida Gardening, Garden Gate, Birds and Blooms etc... I will bring them if anyone is interested in them.
Kat


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Helen,
I have this Hedychium, if you want some of it, we can dig up when you are here. Not sure if it qualifies as orange or not.

Cherie

Peach Hedychium


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

WRF - I have your name on the mussaenda. I would like a cutting of kiss and tell hibiscus if you still have one.

I have hibiscus 'high voltage' if you or anyone wants cuttings. Does anyone want water lettuce for their pond or water garden? I'm having to clear some of mine out and I'll bring to swap if anyone wants, but will have to be cleaned out tomorrow if no one answers.

Cherie, if you have enough to spare I would love a piece of your hedychium ginger. I have a peach colored one, but can't find a picture and all my names got destroyed. I'll go see if it's blooming now.

Ginny


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Ginny,
I have plenty of it, may be able to dig up and pot tomorrow, if not definitely while you are here.

I would like some of your water lettuce, but not a whole lot, my "pond" is just a sunken tub so not much room.

Cherie


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Thanks Cherie and I'll bring some water lettuce. I have just a small pond and a tub. It does multiply fast, but really helps keep the water clear.


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Kat,
Please bring the magazines. I am going to set up a table of "free garden stuff". I have some stuff to put out, extra nursery pots, seeds, etc. Everyone who has stuff they are not using and just want to get rid of can bring them to add to the table.

I'm also going to have some door prizes for a drawing.


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Cherie, if you don't mind, my 88 year old neighbor, Iris would like to join us. She is alot of fun and enjoyed the swap in Vero at Tanya and Jim's. Iris would be happy to bring a case of bottled water or whatever else is needed, as she doesn't cook much these days. We will be traveling with Wanda.


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Oh Cherie, that is beautiful! I would love a piece. Can I offer you a pink and a red Etlingera start? I had white too but I don't seem to be able to find it lol

Ginny, the kiss & tell is yours, I have plenty if anyone else is interested

I'm going to dig up and wash the heliconias and the gingers I'm bringing and bring them along in a bucket if that's ok with everyone. It will just be so much easier than trying to pot them up and deal with the dirt in the car.


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Ms. Marion, I would love for Iris to join us. I really don't mind if she does not bring a thing, but if she is the type to insist, bottled water is great. My Gram may be here as well, they would probably hit it off. Not sure yet, Gram says "we'll see". I'll have some of Gram's Bread and Butter pickles and Apple Butter here if any one is interested.

Helen (wana run faster) I have plenty of the Hedychium, and would love a red Etlingera, no issues with not potting. I am going to do the same with the larger Heliconias. Both Gingers and Heliconias are perfectly fine with doing them that way, I have ordered just the rhizomes on the internet before and they have always been fine.

One of the door prizes is a 3 gallon pot of Ground Orchid, Spathoglottis, covered in blooms, I just picked up at a local nursery today. I'll post a picture later.

RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

I want to add to my 'have' list: I cleaned off the deck this weekend and these need to find a nice home:
I have two rooted (and blooming) 16 Candles Floribunda Rose. this is my favorite of my over 50 roses, it is a gorgeous apricot, heavy bloomer.
I also have a rooted (and close to blooming) Mary Magdeline David Austin Rose and may be my second favorite rose, peachy-cream color and licorice scent, blooms her head off. Here is a bouquet I picked yesterday, Mary is the lighter colored one.
Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com
A rooted Renae, climber, pink, thornless. This is an old rose, pretty little sweetheart clusters, no fuss but blooms frequently and the vine mixes easily with other vines.
A native porterweed, coral, tall, 6'. I'll cut it back for transportation.
Nancy


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

I can smell the roses from here.
I potted up the Nora grant. She was pissed. Let's see how she does.

I can bring black magic EE from my pond and maybe a snowflake or 2.

I also have day blooming jasmine coming up. (I don't remember planting it there)smell is not as strong as nite blooming and smells like white chocolate.

Butterfly - do you still have the Spiralis would love that

WRF - I have to stop looking at what you have keep finding more like the Hoya and if you have any more of the Etlingere those are beautiful please check my list below to see if you want anything

Surinam cherry
Mexican sage
Varigated Clerodendrom shooting star
Wild coffee
cutting of Joe Hayden begonia

I will also bring some other odds and ends

Katie

I'd love to try to root the climbing frangipani, if you can get me a cutting. :o)


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Would anyone like Costus spiciosus - white crepe ginger rhizomes? If anyone wants I'll dig and bring to the swap.

Katie - would love a cutting of the frangipani vine. Have been trying for 2 years to get that one. Would you like a rooted Strophanthus gratus - climbing oleander?

Ginny


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

I still have a rooted varigated Costus speciosus up for grabs (one of my favorite plants). I have one more of the Orangy hedychium, two of the white butterfly ginger, and a lot of other stuff that no one asked for, they will just be up for grabs. It's easy for me, since it's at my house, won't have to take home anything that no one wants.

There are also going to be a few new people there that don't have much to trade, so if you have stuff that no one has asked for and you are debating about bringing, you may want to bring them along if you have room. I know of several people that are coming, who have not posted trade lists or arranged any swaps in advance.


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

Katie- The climbing Frangipani vine would be nice if you have extra. I'm going to go around and cut some fresh things Sunday morning that aren't one my list. Can't wait :)


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

I am hoping to attend the swap tomorrow.
I can bring seedlings from:
foxtail palm
callyphylum tree
jatropha (just a few)

plumeria pundica (bridal bouquet)
dichorisanda thrisflorinada (false blue ginger)

Thanks Kevin

Last Minute Stuff

Well, it's really not last minute, but I wanted to post in time for everyone to get a chance to see it:

Please watch for the SR 706/Indiantown Road exit, it can be a little confusing, for example if you are coming from the south on 95, the west bound exit for Indiantown Road says to "Okeechobee". If you are coming from the south on 95, it is the exit after Donald Ross Road. On the turnpike, it might say Jupiter/Indiantown or even Okeechobee/Indiantown.

Parking: I have a big circle drive, both gates will be open. You can pull through the circle drive and drop off plants before parking. I will have a wheelbarrow, boxes, a garden cart and we will You are welcome to park around the circle drive, just pull off on the right side, there are no sprinklers to worry about, just don't block the circle so others can pull through to drop off stuff. You can also park along the street.

Justin, from Hammock Tropical Garden will be joining us for lunch. It is the local nursery I suggested we can take a side trip to afterwards, for anyone who is interested. It is on the way back out of Jupiter Farms. He is a wealth of information on all kinds of tropical plants and specializes in shady plants.

Also forgot to mention, the swap is going to be around the pool, anyone who wants to can take a dip to cool off, so if you think you might, come prepared. I do have plenty of pool towels.

Try and label the plants you are swapping, I will have extra labels here if you don't get a chance to label them in advance.

Cherie


 o
RE: WANTED: Part 2, Jupiter Farms Swap, Sept. 27

I have to apologize to everyone, I won't be able to make it tomorrow after all.
I will keep all the things marked that I've promised to everyone and will try to plan a get together at my house soon!

Have fun tomorrow!

Zoo-Katie, sorry for the incorrect spelling. The tree is Calophyllum brasiliense -- Brazilian beautyleaf. It makes a nice dooryard tree and is rather salt tolerant. Kevin

Ginny or Cherie, I'd love to try some of the Costus spiciosus, variegated or not. Thanks
