I am sure you all think we are EATING ferns, but I want more,more,more! As of now, I don't know what we will have to trade; out garden looks VERY bleak right now... Good news! The neighbor who, as my daughter says,"got lost in a cement statue lot and had to buy his way out"has moved, and taken most of his ugly statuary with him!(He had about 10 pieces,not as focal points, just THERE!

I rreeeaalllyyy would love to have some double brugs (and/or single any red or purple.) I'll take cuttings too. PLLLeeeaazzz. Let me know what you are looking for or provide me your trade list.

Lindabeth, I have Leatherleaf Fern. If interested, let me know.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

I am looking for various vines to grow along my fence. I have areas from sun to shade, but am especially looking for things that can grow in partial shade that won't mind wet feet in the winter. I really need almost any nice looking vine that is not invasive. I would especially love some Tangerine Beauty Crossvine and some climbing hydrangea.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

vnginger~~~YES! we are interested!Right now the only thing of which we can be sure to trade is hostas and nandinas!!

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Kathy, how about Jessamine, yellow spring blooming? I may have some. I often have some coming up. I also might have some confederate jasmine. I don't know what kind of fence you have. The Climbing Hydrangea needs to adhere itself to something so it's fine on wood but not good for chain link.

GGG


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

GGG, I have a split rail fence with the wire fencing so it has some wood, I thought if I plant it at the base of the posts it could grow up the posts and hopefully spread out on the rails a little. I would love some confederate jasmine as well as the Jessamine.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Kathy, if you can find yourself a yellow bleeding heart vine, do it. I'll look on Monday at a local nursery when I go (sometimes they have them). These look FANTASTIC on a low fence like yours. My friend has one in part-shade and it is gorgeous. Blooms all season long non-stop and will take some winter moisture at roots. Not a lot though, but some. Mine is already coming back.

GGG


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Okay GGG now I have to have one of those yellow bleeding heart vines if you find one please let me know. Have you tried rooting cuttings from your friend's? Does anyone have one of these they could root for me?


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Kathy, I have this vine. I've been hoping it would spread a bit but it never has from the root. Apparently you can grow it from cuttings, however, mine have never taken. It grows from seed too, however, again, mine has never re-seeded. Neither has my friends! I grow mine up a downspout which has been trellised with chicken wire and just painted to match the trim on the house. Works great. Beautiful vine.

I'm home sick today, but I will get to that nursery. It's in walking distance and I think my friend bought her vine there. I'll let you know if I find one.

I'm also looking for vines to grow on my fence. Part of it is in the shade and part in the sun, so just about anything would grow but I don't want anything invasive. The yellow bleeding heart does sound wonderful. Please let me know also where to find one. I have some iris, roses, heleborus, oregano, yarrow, and a LOT of other stuff that I will get together before the trade.

YES! We'd love to meet you.

We'll probably be having lunch; maybe you could bring a covered dish to contribute to that?

 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

OK, folks. We need to have the plant trade limited from 11am-1 pm at the latest. I have a garden lecture to give beginning at 2 pm. Sorry, but I gotta squeeze in the work hours during the spring, Saturdays are the busiest season!
Anyway, I think we can do it. You all can certainly come before 11. I'm usually all set up by 9am anyway!

 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Hey Squirrley. I was wondering if you were coming.
I would like some Ron Deal Verbena and pink princess wigelia.

I can get you a rooted division of white flowering quince. This grows into a very LARGE shrub that will flower many times a season.

You may have a few of my cement blocks. I may also have more left over by the time the trade comes, since they will use block for the foundation on the new stairwell addition. You will be free to take as many as you like - please!

I have LOADS of roses. Pls. email me I'll see if I can dig out a list. It might be a partial list outta my head. I also have rooted roses, although I can't guarentee what they will be when they bloom - Squirrels keep kicking out the tags :)

GGG


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Hey Glynis! Yep, my mom and I wouldn't miss it. I'll set the Ron Deal verbena & Weigelia aside for you. And I would love the white quince and cement blocks. I guess that settles the decision of whether to bring the car or the truck lol. I'll e-mail you about the roses too.

Pam -- I'll look around tomorrow, I may have some extra 'Sunny Border Blue' Veronica for you. Many of my tags faded out so some plants/varieties are still a mystery this early in the season.

Squirrellypete

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Hi squirrellypete,

Would you be interested in trading a "Ron Deal" Verbena and a "Wild Horses" Daylily for a small division of the traditional coral color Quince and a "Cinnamon Girl" Bearded Iris?

Thanks,
Danita

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

I do not have much "new" to trade this spring, sorry! I may however have some unusual vegetables so we'll see how things come along this next month. If you are interested in asian, italian or heirloom veg please email me to discuss.

I will have some annuals, and:


sedum Angelina
Sedum tetractinum
Sedum: Kamschatca Stonecrop (which is, I think the mystery sedum I have been sharing around)

canna lilies. Probably red stripe. As they come along, I will know better what they are (they have been potted for a year). The foliage makes great contrast in the garden.

Heirloom bearded iris: this is the fairly common iris, which is almost totally purple with some yellow inside. Smells like grape koolaid. This is the 2nd iris to bloom in my garden (it's blooming now) so nice and early. Makes a quick clump and makes loads of flowers.

Salvia guaranitica: this is royal blue flowering all summer. Hummer magnet!

Clumping Bamboo: I guarentee this is a clumper because we've been here for 10 years and it hasn't spread very much. Especially handy for the sloping hillside.

Chinese "Snowball Bush" I do not know exactly what kind this is. It prefers a sunnier site (at least AM sun) and will grow tall for a shrub. Will layer itself. I have a really nice size size if anyone would like it (layered itself off of the mother plant)

House Plants: I have some common houseplants which are good for filling pots and baskets - like devils Ivy. Also have a few christmas cactus which bloom pink.

Monkey Grass: I have a few bags of it which will only be available to anyone who previously arranges they want it.

Variegated evergreen small leaf ivy or "curly" ivy: Great for perennial containers and window boxes. Will only have available for anyone who previously arranges they want it. Not to be put in the ground, please!

I am interested in finding:

Nandina Domestica - I would particularly like the common variety, some smaller plants and some of "good size" if you can dig them out and have no need. That troublesome slope could use them!

1 red leaf barberry. I have on already. I'd like a pair.

Broken plates (not correlle) - break any china between now and the trade, please bag it up and bring it. I can use it for my mosaics. Or bring any old dishes you think are hiddeously ugly or you will never use. The older the better. I am particularly fond of things from the 50's or 60's or very busy patterns and bold colors.

Mahonia: once again, I need more mahonia for our slope. My new neighbor and I are going to try and get rid of the weedy "shrub" border between our houses and I am in charge of beginning to fill it in. Rather a shady area.

Plain green aucuba. I do not need any more variegated, thank-you.

Unusual succulents (do not have to be hardy), but not cactus. Vroomp has endowed us with many cactus already :)

I will post more "haves" as I see them coming up.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

I have some hummingbird feeders I'll be bringing. They are in the style of stained glass decoratives; I found them on a clearance rack at Pike's, to be honest, so cheaply I couldn't pass them up. I think I have 4 or 5 of them, one of which is truly enormous. Hummingbirds never come to my house, unfortunately, so I might as well trade them for something I can use. Or even give them away. If I have time, I'll try to take pictures and post them before the trade day.

I've also got a few white metal and glass miniature greenhousey kind of things that I bought at Hill Street Warehouse a few years ago, with the intention of making little terrariums inside. That would have been beautiful but of course I never did it. Anyone interested in these? They are just gathering dust and every time I look at them I feel guilty.

What I could really use, instead of these fancy things that I keep buying and then not using, are very large plastic pots. 10 gallon and larger, the kind that trees come in. I need these for planting herbs in to imbed on the hillside in our new community garden. I could also make good use of used lumber that is at least 12 inches wide x 1 inch and 8 to 12 feet long. Untreated would be best, as we'll use them to make the sides of vegetable garden beds in our community garden. We can also use 2' or 3' long wooden and rebar stakes to hold the sides of the beds up.

Also I'm interested this year in any herb plants, again for the community garden, and would be very happy to accept donations of kitchen waste (coffee grounds, vegetable clippings, etc) for our community garden compost pile.

I'll be looking through the plants in my driveway before the trade and will post anything that I can't use. This really should be the year I either get things into the ground or get rid of them!

Here's a link to our community garden website, in case anyone is interested.

Here is a link that might be useful: Rose Circle Community Garden Website

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Debbie, I may have some wood for you. At least one good piece. I may have some rebar too. I will have some herbs - I just planted a load of purple opal basil today. I have the start of stuff for compost. Winter vegetables gone to seed etc. I'll bag that up for you when the time comes. I'm sure I'll have more.
Let me ask if I can get you tree pots. I asked before but the fellow keeps forgetting to bring them around.

GGG


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

A couple more things to add:
1 Butteryfly Bush (white)
1 Loropetalum (Razzleberry?)

I've started these seeds:
Basil Spicy Globe Bush
Agastache "Apricot Sprite"

Westender, if the Basil makes it, I'll be happy to bring you some.

Thanks, Squirrellypete for looking for that Veronica!

If anyone has any of the Echinacea "Big Sky" Series, I'm interested. Particularly "Sundown" or "Sunrise."


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

GGG I have some interesting succulents for you. They are not hardy but, are easily kept over winter. They reproduce quickly and tolerate the driest areas. They may grow as high as 4 feet but take to pinching quite well. They have striking mottled leaves with deep serations. I also have few small Standard Nandinas I can bring you. I would be interested in that Snowball you have.

Pam, if noone has spoken for that Loropetalum I would like it please. Let me know if I have anything you want listed. I don't have anything on your list currently but may have some Purple Coneflowers by trade time for you.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Vroomp, the snowball is yours.

Brenda, you are now on the mailing list. I will try to send out emails to everyone who has posted here, next week.
Brenda, I have for you - rudbeckia, at least one kind, canna lilies - most likely red stripe, clumping bamboo, curly ivy, blue salvia - possibly two different types. Both are royal blue. One is a spring blooming ground cover, the other is that tall, gorgeous blue salvia that blooms all summer long!

We are doing a covered dish brunch.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

I am going to calendar this event and hope I can come. But as people who know me know, I may not be able to. I will confirm with everyone below right before the date.

I have a rooted Veilchenblau rose that I promised to somebody last year but can't remember who; I delivered Carmen's to her but the other one was for... squirrellypete?

Speaking of which, I have Golden Showers rose, squirrellypete, and I will bring cuttings.

I have several canna Tropicana, and I can bring one for bkbdesign. I wouldn't mind a small holly - anykind, chinese, native, evergreen or deciduous.

Kathyga, I am thinking of taking out my Marie Pavie rose. It is pretty disease resistant, and is compact. But it's crowding an english boxwood that I want to have grow better, and it doesn't smell nearly as good as I supposed it would. Let me know if you would like this and in exchange I would like zebra grass (is this the tall, horizontal striped miscanthus zebrinus?).

Otherwise, kathyga, I do have a few fabulous disease-resistant roses and can bring you cuttings or even try to make a rooted cutting (though at this late date not sure it would take): Apothecary Rose, Duchesse de Brabant, Sally Holmes, Felicia, Veilchenblau, and the most disease resistant, Cramoisie Superieur. The most black-spot prone but maybe because it's in too much shade (I'm moving it) is Maggie. If anyone wants cuttings of any of these let me know.

Also I have variegated ampelopsis (porcelain vine) and I'm sure will have plenty of passionvine volunteers. Those two vines are awesome but both kathyga and jenans said "not invasive" and these are borderline so let me know.

Pam, I have Stokes Aster, and I will pot one up for you. Let me know if your Apricot Sprite Agastache seedlings do well and we could trade that.

I would love to see everyone and everything!
Rose


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Hi Rosie! I checked last year's swap list and that was me about the Veilchenblau rose -- I'd forgotten all about it so I'm glad you remembered. And I am psyched about the Golden Showers cuttings. My mother had this in another house when I was little and it was gorgeous and vigorous despite our lack of rose knowledge. Don't know if there are newer better yellow climbers out there after all these years but we couldn't beat that one at the time -- brings back good memories.

Anything from my list you'd like? Squirrellypete


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Rose, I have your spirea. It has been going great guns.

GGG


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Squirrellypete, if you still have a rooted cutting of the tardiva hydrangea, that would be lovely.

Glynis, thanks and I'm soooo glad!!! But I will need to figure out how to get you some nandina -- I've read they can be divided in half so I will pull up the one I've got and hope that works. Will also keep an eye out for cool plates.

take care, Rose


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Well, as usual I want more than I have to offer but here's the list. Let me know if there is anything you would like:

Thank you both. Squirrellypete


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Rose, I would love your Marie Pavie and a Veilchenblau cutting if you can start one would be awesome, I can just not plant it until it is well rooted. I would love any and all cuttings you can give me from disease resistant roses (I do not spray) I have a lot of pinks so only fabulous pinks please, so I can save room for others. I can definitely bring you some Zebra grass (yes it is the miscanthus zebrinus) is there anything else you would like?

BKdesign I can bring your forsythia and ice plant for Holly and white iris please

GGG could I get some sedum Angelina please? Is there anything else on my list I can bring for it? I think I have already given you all of my succulents.

Danielle, I would love any of the following--
Ron Deal Verbena
Ryan's Pink Mum
Bridalwreath Spirea
'Tardiva' Pink PeeGee Hydrangea
'Orange Perfection' Phlox
Daylilies:
Wild Horses (my 6 year old is a horse freak so she would love to have this one)

For you--
rose cuttings I could bring(I can try and start some for you or bring fresh cuttings if you would prefer) Lady Banks Yellow, Knock Out Pink (not the pale pink) Knock Out Original, Carefree Sunshine.
Named Hosta Varieties I will have to wait a week or so to see which ones look big enough to divide for you, then I'll let you know.
Different Heuchera varieties I have quite a few varieties of these but have not yet propagated any of them, do you recommend a particular method, or I can just look it up. I'll have to look at what I have and get back to you but should be able to give you several newer ones.
Named Daylilies--please send me your list, so I
can see what I have that I haven't already given you. Or is there anything I posted earlier that you are interested in?

Ok I am sure I am missing something, but I need to get to bed.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta Plant Trade: April 21 2007

I am already out of last year's rooted Ron Deal Verbenas but I will take new cuttings this week that will hopefully be rooted by trade. I also need to double check on the Condilla daylilies to see how many are left. Everything else you wanted I will definitely bring you.

I'd love rose cuttings from any of the varieties you mentioned except the original Knockout and it doesn't matter to me whether you try to root them or bring fresh. Same goes for any of the azaleas except for Autumn Angel.

The few heucheras I have aren't that big and I've never divided them before so I couldn't advise you on that. Maybe someone else here might give some advice? I currently have an unknown green-leafed variety with red flowers, Plum Pudding and Palace Purple. Looking for any other varieties.

I look forward to hearing about your hosta and I'll e-mail you about the daylilies too!

Hi lucyatlanta,

What kind(or color) are your Alstroemeria?

Thanks,
Danita

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

LucyAtlanta, I would love some nandinas. I can get some Becky daisies for you, and do you want annuals for cutting. I have some zinnias and cosmos started and will start some more. Also today am starting loads of marigolds that are the shorter types but still excellent for cutting. Will have strawflowers too. I always have plenty for cut flowers for anyone who wants them!
Do you have the perennial cutleaf coneflower? I have many thanks to Kathy, they are also nice for cutting. They do spread, but not hard to keep under control.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Kathy, sedum angelina is yours. Do you have any that have red leaves?

Does anyone have a dwarf burning bush? I would like one for the new front shrub area for fall color.

Am also looking for any very dwarfish shrubs.

Hello All,

GGG- Did you get my gardenweb email about veggies?

nosyrosie - I'd love try rooting a few cuttings of Roses: Duchesse de Brabant, Veilchenblau, and Cramoisie Superieur. Out of curiosity, are you the same nosyrosie that's on the ATML?

vnginger - Would you like a cutting of a Tiara cross seedling? It looks a lot like Tiara with creamy white petite blossoms that smell like lemon cookies. Mine has stayed on the smaller side so it would probably be a good patio brug.

kathyga_z7 & janen - I can TRY to root some Coral Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) and wild yellow/ rusty colored Bignonia if you like. Are you interested in any annual vines?

bkdesign - I can get you some Rudbeckia and Dwarf Yellow Canna if you like.

lucyatlanta - I should be able to get you some Shasta Daisy. I don't know the variety though.

If anyone is interested in Rudbeckia, Dwarf Yellow Canna, Ox Eye Daisy, Regular Orange Daylily, or Old fashioned purple Bearded Iris let me know by this Thursday at the latest.

I'll post a trade list a little later! :)
Danita


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Danita, I would love to have the Tiara. Thank you :) I will compose my list & post soon. Please let me know what you would like.

GGG - I'd love to have Snow Ball. Can you start one for me plz? I'd also love to have some STriped cannas, and clumping bamboo. (plz look at my have list later...)

squirrellypete, Can i have the T Pink hyndrangea or cuttings... also like the butterfly bushes since i do not have any. (if ok, please let me know what u want after i post my have list...)

I am still looking for lilacs & winter hazel.

Will post my have/want list soon. Thanks. tc

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Vnginger -- I've got a Tardiva hydrangea for you and butterfly bushes. Any particular colors/varieties of BBs you prefer or would you just like a mix?

Squirrellypete

RE: WANTED: Spring Trade

Kathy, did you receive the e-mail I sent about the daylilies? There is no rush on a reply, I just wanted to make sure you got it since I sent it through Gardenweb.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

GGG,

How small would a dwarf burning bush be? I have a small burning bush that my parents brought me from Ohio a couple of years ago; it's growing in a small pot (3 gallon, I think, 5 at the most). It is about 2 feet tall. They say that in Ohio it dies down to the ground every winter, but in my driveway pot the leaves just fall off after turning a brilliant red. Otherwise it's a pretty undistinctive little plant, and since I haven't found a place to put it into the ground if you'd like to have it you're welcome to it. I can always get them to bring me more if I figure out where I want to put some. In searching posts about burning bush on gardenweb, it seems it is considered an invasive plant, but the one I have in the pot doesn't seem to be growing very fast. Maybe it would in enriched soil in the ground, though.

I've also got a sedum of some kind that has red leaves. It's pretty slow-growing and I don't know its name, but I'll be happy to bring a piece of it if you want it. The leaves are very small. It's one that shows up late in the spring, doesn't look very lifelike during the winter. And I've got it in a small pot, so perhaps if it were in the ground it, too, would spread and do better.

Debbie


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Okay vnginger, I'll try to get it started for you. Just to be clear, it is not actually Tiara but an unnamed seedling that had Tiara as a mother plant and looks similar. When I bought it the seller didn't make that totally clear for a brug newbie and I thought I was getting the real Tiara. I still like her and her fragrance is my favorite.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Hey Westy,
Yes! I am looking for one of those small burning bushes and I would love it. I need it as a back drop for other plants, and then want it for a color in the fall. Unassuming when green is perfect.
I'd love some red leaf sedum.

I also have a few tree pots for you!

GGG

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

GGG,

I think my mother will be pleased knowing that something from her yard is growing in yours. We drove by your house last weekend when my parents were here visiting and they were very impressed! They really love decorative yards.

I'll bring both the burning bush and some of the red sedum. Thanks for scrounging up some pots for me!

Debbie

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Danielle, I sent you an email, hope you get it, since I did not get yours. If anyone has tried to email me directly through Garden Web they are not coming through. Just semd to bochonko@bellsouth.net.

GGG the only reddish sedum I have is the one you have from me already--Sedum tetractinum, that gets red in the fall and "pork and beans" which I overwintered in a pot, if I can dig a little out for you I will.

Pam, I will most definitely bring you some forget me nots, and some lemon thyme. (and I would love any of those hellebores you are digging out)

Danita I would love the honeysuckle and the begonia, what annual vines do you have? I may be interested. What can I bring for you?

Glynis -- Leebea Orange Crush is yours =)

Also, if anyone has an extra water hyacinth my mom would like one for my dad's porch pond. I know they multiply rapidly so one would probably be enough. I'm also looking to trade for more used non-plant items:
old garden hoses (even if they have a leak)
medium-heavy duty long extension cords
soaker hoses
2-way and 4-way hose splitters (brass or plastic)
lengths of PVC pipe 1" diameter or smaller
24 volt solenoid valves
24 volt universal transformers
cheapo watering timers
Basically anything used in making an automatic irrigation system.

I have a few more items to add for trade:
Rooted evergreen Boxleaf Euonymus (layered itself)
1 Sweet Basil plant
'Little Cadet' Daylily
'Royal Garnet' Daylily
'Plum Tree' Daylily
'Little Wine Cup' Daylily
'Little Wart' Daylily

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

GGG and Rose, I was dividing my "zebra grass" yesterday and discovered the tag only to realize it is actually "porcupine grass" Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus.' If you don't want it let me know, but I have a ton of it potted up. If anyone else wants some let me know. It is a pretty grass and so far I haven't had a problem with it seeding, just the clump itself multiplies in my yard.

Here is a link that might be useful: Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus'


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Pam, I have a large clump of the salvia if you'd like, it could be divided. I just dug it up a few mins ago before the rain. I have lots of smaller plants and pieces of it too.

Kathy, I would love Porcupine grass. Thank-you, not a problem that it is not zebra grass. I am actually planning on planting this at church anyway. I'm working on a grass garden area, mixed with small benches for conversation areas.

I think I have everyone covered so far for requests but, here's my list again of what I have to trade.

Nikko Blue Hydrangea (a few)
Splianthes acmella (toothache plant (flowers looks like Olives on sticks)
Gomphrena (strawberry and regular purple variety)
Amarylis (Hippeastrum, Orange Soveriegn) 4 small plants which require one more year of growth to bloom
Agave Americana (three plants)
Purple Hyacinth Bean Vine 6-8 in 2" pots
Liriope (Big Blue) 2" pots 10 available
Society Garlic (nice blooms) bulbs
Native Oat Grass (perennial)Chasmanthium latifolium? 5
Ornamental Peppers (Tabasco Variety with white, orange, purple and red fruit colors with purple leaves)6-8
A couple of Pink(hopefully) Angel Trumpets that I have grown from seeds this winter
Rooted Serissa Foetida if anyone wants to try their hand at bonsai this is a great plant (a pink snow variety I think)

And of course I need only Sedum, Autumn Joy and Hydrangeas as usuall but, will take almost anything different and perennial.

Sorry to all you seafood lovers but, I will not be offering Oysters for breakfast. I am thinking Portabella Mushroom and Andouille Sausage Quiche instead.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Brad, if you're interested, I will start some Blaumeis Blue hydrangea cuttings for you in exchange for a couple of strawberry gomphrena seedlings.

Do you have a mother serissa plant that I could have a cutting from to try to root? I would like to try my hand at bonsai. (The Lucky Key restaurant in Tucker has a cook who brings his trees in for display at the restaurant regularly. We tried to have a conversation about it, it was hard, but he sure loves those babies.)

I don't think I have anything to trade for the rooted serissa but I'll keep thinking about it. I do have just one autumn joy sedum which I think looks like old broccoli most of the time - I just don't understand why people like it so much but I'm thinking about giving it another chance. If I change my mind about keeping it I'll contact you!

ROSE, <<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
the Hydrangea cutting would be great! I have you down for 2 Serrisa (these are a variagated variety with tiny pink flowers). Both are off-shoots I have grown from the mother plant by layering and were cut loose about 2 months ago but, I have kept them in the ground. One is for your friend (if you wish) and one for you.

I have plenty of Gomphrena for everyone as my last seed tray has produced over 100 plants and I have two trays going! LOL. I will only be planting around 30 for myself as they seed and grow new ones in a single season when planted early.

What variety of Passiflora do you have volunteers of? If they aren't Caerulea or a hybrid of P. Caerulea I would like one if you have another to spare.

VNGINGER,<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have you down for Amaryllis. Will 3 do?

 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

mapleplace, I may have a nice dwarf bleeding heart for you. Do you need any moss for your japanese maples? My side yard can produce moss that people who grow japanese maples sometimes come and collect.

Lucyatlanta, I don't much care what size the nandinas are. Mainly I am looking for the "plain old" variety, at any stage of growth. I just need them to fill a slope.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Hi all,
I am glad to hear there is interest in the maples. They all come from one original maple in our yard so are all the same type. I think I will have to bring the smaller sizes to the trade (2-3 feet) because I am afraid of injuring larger ones and can't fit them in my station wagon. I would discuss larger sizes at the the trade with any one interested in picking them up.

GGG: The moss sounds interesting. How quickly does it spread? I may be interested. And I love the sound of the bleeding heart.

Kathyga: I would be very interested in some creeping jenny. I saw a beautiful patch of it thriving at the botanical garden this morning. I would also love some heuchera for my woodland garden.

bkdesign: the volunteer ferns sound great for me and I'd love a little monarda for my small sunny patch.

Unbelievable, I have things to trade that people want!

I have:

Mahonias - lots of volunteers, and am about ready to start digging up the big ones

George Tabor (pink & purple w/large leaves) azaleas - 3 - 5 good sized (3' across)

Basic bi-colored hostas - type unknown, 3 - 5 good clumps

Marigold seeds - both orange and yellow

Hellebores volunteers and seeds

What do I want?

I have just about filled out the shady area, but can still use more. In particular, evergreen stuff 3' and shorter.

Vegetables, especially beans and squashes that I can grow in a square foot garden.

Oregano, tarragon, basil, cilantro

I'm also doing a small roadside project in an otherwise ugly industrial area, and would appreciate any sun-loving daylillies and irises that you can spare.

Thanks,

I just bought them from the garden center a week or so ago so they are still small though. I should also have some daylilies and possibly Iris too. Also have some volunteer pumpkin & cucumber seedlings sprouting if you're interested but they'll get too big for a square foot garden. Just LMK if you'd like to work something out.

Richard: I have some tiger and asiatic lily bulbs that I have inherited. I have planted many throughout my sunny spots but only about 30% have emerged. I don't know if the others are just slow or if the bulbs weren't cared for well over the winter. I will bring you some to try, though. I also have started some delicious squash seeds. They should emerge in the coming days and I will bring what I can for you. I would LOVE a hellabores volunteer or two. That would be fabulous. I also have the japanese maple seedlings if you are interested.

I'd be interested in tiger & asiatic lilies if you have any left to trade. I'd be interested in a couple 2-3' maples if you see anything else from my list that you would want.PLMK

Several people have earlier posted asking how they can get on the email list.
I have sent out direction emails. I will continue to send them out until 6pm on the 20th of April. I do not check my email the morning of the plant trade - I'm way too busy!!

To receive emails through GW you need to change your membership page to allow that function. At the bottom of any page, in the green band, click on the words "Member Pages". That will bring up a menu. Click "Edit Your Personal Information....". You will be prompted to sign in. That brings up another page. Scroll to the very bottom and you can change email preferences. The 2nd box says "Allow other users to send you email via forms at our site." Click this box. Now, above that box is a scroll down box you can click "none" which means that people can send you email only through a GW form, or "members" meaning only GW members can see your email. There is a glitch on this page on some membership pages, no way to submit this form. I will try to get this corrected.

squirrellypete,
Could you bring me a Limelight Artemisia. Read that it's invasive. So I will put it in a pot. Like the foliage... I can bring you 6 types of climbing roses cuttings... (I'll cut this week if u are interested...) I lost the tags as I bought them about 10 yrs ago. At least two are yellow. All the pics in the show are climbing roses. I do not have any bushes... I have a couple of other favorites but no photos avail at this time since my main computer crashed...

Let me know if you are interested...

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Squirrellypete, Thanks.

Lindabeth,
I'd be happy to pick up your trades if you can't make it there. I am not too far from Roswell. Any plants you are looking for in particular.. maybe I'll keep an eye out for them. Hope you get feeling better. We will miss you at the trade.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

I have taken some pictures of the hummingbird feeders and terrariums that I have to trade, and there is a link to them below. If anyone wants any of these things, please email me before the trade to let me know. Otherwise I won't bother bringing them.

What I could use in trade for these, if anyone wants them, is any herb plants, very large plastic pots, 2' - 8' long pieces of rebar, coffee grounds, frozen vegetable scraps for the compost pile, old watering cans with or without sprayheads, roll screening cloth like you would use on windows or doors, and bungee cords.

I'll be bringing a few plants for the general trade from my driveway - whatever I can find between now and Saturday! as well as the red-leaved sedum and small burning bush for GGG.

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Girlgroupgirl - Please send me directions for the trade. You got some plants from me last year - one was probably a sunflower and you were going to try to find out the name of that plant. I want to bring some more of them this year, but need to know the name if possible. It was a yellow flower about 2 1/2 to 3 inches across maybe. Mine do not get more than 3 feet tall. Wonderful plant, beautiful and works for you all summer.


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

I can see from my garden website that some people have at least looked at the pictures I posted of the terrariums and hummingbird feeders I can bring to trade. However, apparently gardenweb.com is not forwarding emails to me in spite of the fact that my profile is correctly configured to accept emails from gardenweb members. So if anyone has tried to email me through gardenweb, I'm sorry, but I didn't get your email. I tried to email myself through gardenweb and I can't get through, either!

You can email me directly at debbie.zimmerman@gmail.com if you're interested in any of those hummingbird feeders or the 2 terrariums.

Also, Pam, can you remind us all of what you would like to have for Evan's Garden?

And Richard, is it safe to assume that unnamed or unmarked varieties of daylilies and irises are ok for your roadside project? I have some that I'd love to thin, but I threw out the nametags years ago. Also, are you interested in seeds for your vegetable garden, or must you have plants? I always save bean seeds from year to year, and can bring you some of those if you want them.

Mapleplace, is anybody bringing you creeping jenny, or do you still need it? Does anyone else want some of it?

Susan/soulgardenlove, I drive a Honda Accord and can use as many of your large pots as I can fit into it and you're willing to give me. But what kind of cottage garden perennials do you really yearn for? What exactly do you mean by "cottage garden" perennials? I can look around tonight and start digging, but I don't want to bring you things you already have or don't want. Are you just beginning your cottage garden, and perhaps can use anything?


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Soulgarden/Susan -- some fresh cuttings the morning of the trade would be great. Rosie is bringing me a Golden Showers too but extras are always welcome. My sister-in-law is just getting interested in gardening now that she has her own home and has decided she wants a yellow climbing rose too so the more the merrier. The Navajo Bright Red Salvia is yours. Thanks and see you there!

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Westender

Do the hummingbird feeders hold liquid okay? If so I would love a couple. I have heard that some of those kind leak the sugar water all over. I am interested in the terrariums as well if they are available. How large of pots do you want, I have many of the 3 gallon size and maybe 1 or two larger sized. I also should be able to get you some coffee grounds from my local starbucks. Is there anything else you might want?


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Hi Debbie.. Sent you a long list email of things I have.. I need to compile a complete list for future reference :)

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Wow, time really got away from me! Well, this is a little last minute but there is a list of some things I have below.

Also, a tip for packing plants: Aldi's grocery stores encourage you to take boxes from their store. You can get great produce boxes that even have handle holes that would work well for carrying plants.

Squirellypete - If you see anything below that interests you, I would love to trade for some Navajo Bright Red Salvia and some other daylilies.

Pam_3 - I'm interested in the Agastache 'Apricot Sprite' if you want to trade.

nosyrosie- Thanks for the rose cuttings, let me know if you want anything below. I hope Unifieds went well!

vnginger - I haven't gotten the brug rooted, but I'll have a nice cutting for you. May I have some red monarda, is it 'Jacob Cline' by chance?

vroomp- If you have some extra Gomphrena (strawberry) I'd be interested if you want to trade.

Soulgardenlove- I'd love some Raspberry Wine bee balm-monarda if you want to trade.

Plants I have:
Gold/Orange Brugmansia - Angel Trumpet, big rooted cutting
Black Eyed Susan - Rudbeckia
Coreopsis- yellow threadleaf
Dwarf Yellow Canna Lily - around 3 ' tall
Siberian Iris- purple
Flowering Quince suckers- coral
Variegated Vinca major
Tiger lily (Lilium) orange spotted true lily
Bloodroot - Sanguinaria candensis
Phlox stolonifera - 'Bruces White'
Iris cristata
Monarda - Lavender-pink bee balm
Unknown Iris- Shorter, with flower stalks around 1 1/2', I haven't seen the blooms yet but based on the buds they look to be medium sized purple flowers, form nice clumps.
Agave - a very sad looking blue-grey-green agave that didn't like the cold weather in a 3 gallon pot. It is alive but needs some love. Free to anyone who wants it.
I may have some other stuff, but need to check.

Plants I want:
Herbs- basil, others
Veggies- esp. sweet to mildly hot peppers, indeterminate plum tomato, seeds or seedlings of really good zucchini variety or smaller watermelons. Anything interesting and good that isn't commonly found.
Perennial - anything uncommon
Annuals - anything uncommon
Big pots for my angel trumpets, 5 gallon and bigger(tree pots)

Thanks All!
Danita

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

vroomp,
I just was emailing that your loro. is starting to get new foliage (I had pruned it back hard, and was worried that it might be dead.)

Danita,
I'll bring you some Agastache seedlings. I'd love to have your bloodroot, if you consider that an equal trade. I can bring you something more, if not.

westender,
Thanks for remembering my little boy's memorial garden. I do need a Cinnamon fern. I have a part sun garden and a full sun butterfly garden. I've been looking for plants with interesting blooms or fun common names. I've also been looking for "Angel" cultivars (I've already purchased a couple of "Evan" and "Duncan" cultivars.) Oh, and whimsical garden art.
Pam

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Danita... You followed me last year to Selah's nursery in Jackson after another plant trade. I'm Susan, the tall gal in the minivan! :) I will bring the truck and bring lots of pots.. My husband will be thrilled. Rasberry Wine is yours and I'd love to have Bruces White Phlox.. The Quince you have may be Cameo Quince.. coral color.. I have it, but thought you might want to look it up to see.

Pam, I will bring you angel or whimsy garden art for your Sons memorial garden.

okay.. out to the garden I go.. :)

Susan

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Danita: I have seeds of very good zuccini for you, direct from Italy.
My basil are seedlings but you are welcome to some purple basil. I can spare a few small watermelon seeds too, I think.

Squirrley: I have not rooted your roses yet. I'm sorry. However, I will cut them today and get them in pots. I do however have another suprise for you. I could not get a white quince for you yet. We need to whack back the HUGE white quince at church before I can dig out more suckers. The giant thorns poke you in the head when you try to dig around under there!

GGG


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Danita -- I'll pot the bright red salvia for you too and I'm e-mailing you about the daylilies. I can always use more Siberian Iris or Tiger Lilies to help fill in the perennial border.

GGG -- no worries about the roses or quince. I don't mind unrooted cuttings one bit and I certainly don't want you getting poked in the head by that quince gone wild lol. Ooooh, a surprise....I love surprises!

Squirrellypete

RE: WANTED: Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Also Danita, I just sent you that e-mail through Gardenweb. I know they don't always go through though so if you didn't get it just send me an e-mail directly at RiJohnson2001@yahoo.com

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Kathy,

I wish I could say that I know the hummingbird feeders will hold water, but I have no idea. I've never used them; I just bought them because I couldn't pass them up at the sale price being offered. I thought they would make nice ornaments for someone even if they didn't actually work as birdfeeders (I've never had any luck at all, myself, attracting hummingbirds). They have rubber stoppers, so I guess they would hold water, but who knows? Maybe someone else could comment on that. I guess I'll bring them, just in case you or someone else wants them, but I'll warn you all in advance, I'M NOT TAKING THEM BACK HOME!!!!

No one else has said they want the terrariums, either, so they're yours if you want them, and I'd be very pleased to trade them for some Starbucks coffee grounds. The more you can get the better. I haven't been able to get Starbucks grounds for a long time; it seems like they only did that as a publicity stunt for a short while and then stopped. I hope you know of a location that is actually still giving them away.

As far as pots go, I don't really need 3 gallon pots, as they're too small to use for the herb plants out in the field, but any larger ones that you have would be great. The bigger the better.

Looking back at your list of plants to trade, I see that you have 4 different kinds of thyme, also pennyroyal and something called "purple knockout sage." I think I would be interested in any of those plants, to trade for the terrariums and/or the hummingbird feeders if you decide you want some of them. I'm very interested in herb plants this year.

Pam, I think I might have a few little things that could be considered whimsical garden art that I can bring for you. If you don't like them, no worry. One thing is that I'm always on the lookout for little iron animals; I like to set those on fences and walls. Do you think you would be interested in any of those? I like them because they're unbreakable and it doesn't matter if they rust in the weather. Little birds, squirrels, mice, deer, etc. Sometimes they are actually door stops, and sometimes I don't know what they are intended to be used for. I have a few little gargoyles, too, but I doubt you'd find those whimsical. . . . Also, I think maybe one of those hummingbird feeders had an angel on top of the glass ball. Do you want that one, even if just to hang as an ornament rather than as a birdfeeder?

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Sorry for late response but have been traveling a lot.

Vnginger -- will bring Alstromeria and Orange Crocomesia

GGG -- several Nandinas for your slope

Mapleplace -- any size Jap Maple is fine so just bring what you have. Will bring you something for shade -- think I have a Hellabores

Danita -- will bring the Alstromeria

Look forward to seeing everyone Saturday.

Toodles -- Lucy

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Everyone:

If I found your swap proposal, then I have sent you mail accepting. Here's a summary:

Squirrelypete - GT azalea & unknown red azalea for basil, cilantro, cucumber

GGG - GT azalea & mahonia for oregano and any veggy or fruit vine plants or seeds.

Vnginger - GT azalea, mahonia & hellebore for 2 varieties of mint

Westender - yes any variety of daylilly or iris is fine, and seeds are great.

To all - I read somewhere that all named varieties of Japanese Maples are grafted. Volunteers are most like the standard variety. Or some new variety! I have 2 volunteers in my garden now, and they are not identical.

I have some digging to do tonight. See everyone on Saturday,

Richard

Thanks for the Tiara Brug. I will bring the monarda. Sorry I do not know the name.
I'd also be interested in your...
Phlox stolonifera - 'Bruces White'
Monarda - Lavender-pink bee balm

I can package you a bagful of vegetable seeds (some unusual ones as well.) I can give you a plumeria cuttings... I am not sure the color... Got it as a gift last yr. JLMK THanks....

RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

vnginger, I'm so sorry that I didn't get your email! I don't know what's going on with gardenweb lately. No emails get through and they wiped out my trade list months ago, too. Since there are 2 of the terrariums, I could give Kathy one of them and give you the other, if that would be ok with her? Or else I'll look and see if I have something similar at the house to bring for you. I won't have internet access tonight or tomorrow, though, so I'll have to assume it will work out for the best. I know she also wanted hummingbird feeders and I'll be bringing some of those for her.

I'm also going to bring some regular hummingbird feeders for the general trade - I've decided to give up on feeders for hummingbirds, as I can't seem to attract them. So I'm getting rid of not only the fancy glass ones I bought at Pike's and posted photos of, but also the regular ones with the red plastic feeder ports. I have 2 of those to bring, one of which I think is sort of nice, except that it needs a new plastic bottle (any sort of shampoo or soap bottle can work).

And I found a few other things to bring, including a very large, very sturdy macrame plant hanger. This thing was made by someone probably in the 60's, it is a dark orange color with some large beads incorporated in the macrame. It looks like it can hold a very large and heavy plant, for someone who's into things from that era.

Also I dug up a piece of a miniature hosta that I don't know the name of, but it's a pretty golden yellow color, and a small division of arum italicum, and found a couple of pots of creeping raspberry (groundcover). Also potted a volunteer coneflower (probably pink) and volunteer blackeyed susans, and a yellow variegated vinca. These things will all have to go into the general trade since I won't have email tonight or tomorrow.

Debbie


 o
RE: WANTED: Spring Atlanta area Plant Trade: April 21 2007

Pam- I have a Bloodroot for you. A few Agastache seedlings in exchange would be great.

Vnginger- I have phlox and monarda for you. They've just been potted and the monarda especially came up sort of stringy so you may want to let it grow in the pot a little before planting out. I'd love some veggie seeds, but don't need plumeria right now. I have two that I bought on clearance last fall!

Vroomp- I'm bringing some Lily of the Valley for the general trade so if you want to exchange some for the strawberry gomphrena let me know before it begins.

Soulgardenlove- Hi Susan! It will be great to see you again. I have the phlox for you. Thanks for the pots!

GGG-Thanks for the veggies. If you see anything that I bring for the trade that you would like, just speak up and it's yours.

Thanks All!

I was really looking forward to having a great gardening visit. If anyone is really interested in what plants I have, please feel free to drop me a note (my username)@ yahoo dot com and we'll see if we can get you hooked up. I am in the Norcross area.

Please accept my regrets and y'all all have a good time!
