Hello,
I missed the swap last fall and this spring, but I was at the swap last spring. Would love to attend the swap this fall. Any day works for me. Last spring someone, and I am ashamed to say I can not remember who it was, gave me an ornamental ginger which grew beautifully. Unfortunately I let someone else overwinter it for me, and it died. I should have been more careful, but was ill and couldn't care for the plant myself. Any way, if you know who had the ginger, I would love to get another one, I promise to keep it myself and take care of it!!!
Thanks,
Jo

What size are the starts people normally bring?

I have:
Daylillies (big ones)
Salvia
Coneflowers
Rudbeckia
Korean Lilacs (hopefully)
Weigela - dwarf variegated (hopefully)

I will probably have more, not sure right now...

I would love to have some mock orange, but I have a blank slate to fill, so I can take pretty much anything...

I'm not sure if I can come, but I'll try. I have lots of malva (light and dark lavendar) and white datura--don't know whether they will transplant now or not, I think they come up from seed, not root. I will collect seed. I have a few yellow coreopsis.
Pam--did the roses make it from this spring's swap?

 o
RE: WANTED: Fall swap- august 18th?

Hey,you know what? The more I think about this swap,the more I think it is quite a bit too early.I know Dessa asked for suggestions for other dates. I think I told her I thought it is too early.,off forum.
People do remodeling of old beds & make new ones in the fall.This isn't fall! My beds are full of blooms & I'm not disturbing anything now. The last thing I need is plants setting out there under the tree needing once or twice daily watering.Guess the heat has got to me.I heard the forcast today & it is not going to cool off.I don't like to throw water on the plans.If you guys are happy with the pre swaps made,go for it
I have over 50 new daylilies coming
fom Etrades & orders & will have my hands full.Just my 2cents.
I can post here again wo my computer,otherwise I would have been on more. Doris

RE: WANTED: Fall swap- august 18th?

I've been putting off deciding whether to come on the 18th or not. I've been busy every weekend for several and I think I better take a rest. I would have a few things to bring if you decide to postpone until mid to late-September. My oxygen needs are really heavy in this heat.
I'll keep watch to see what's going on. Dessa, hope you didn't dig any habiscus for me yet. Ruth
