DIRECTIONS for the WANT list:

1. Post a list of the plants you want, ideally with Latin names to avoid confusion, and cultivar names if they have them and you know what they are.

2. Read other people's lists. If you see things you want and would like to swap or trade for, e-mail the person to arrange it.

3. Do NOT arrange the swap or trade on this thread.

4. Do NOT post a list of plants that you HAVE for swapping or trading on this list. There is a separate HAVE thread for this purpose.

5. Do NOT discuss who will be bringing what kind of Bavarian apple tart food to the swap. There is a separate HAVE thread for food.

6. Do update your member page with your Haves and Wants.

RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

Thanks cecilia, that would be great!
Also, if anybody has any excess bulbs (tubers, corms, rhizomes) they are willing to get rid of, I will gladly accept them and give them (the plant, not the person) a good home.

I'm with Rich on this one. Please check my trade list (link below). I need everything as my yard has nothing but overgrown bushes. :-(

Oogy, if you still have the Catnip unclaimed, I could use some.

I will be bringing food, but let me know if you want to make any other arrangements for trades. I do have some houseplants.

Thanks All!!

I'd love dry shade plants, and trillium or bloodroot -- dare I dream? -- but I would also appreciate:

Hellebores with clear colors
Japanese Painted Ferns
Astilbes
Artemisia
Tricyrtis
Most ornamental salvias
Lemon thyme
Lemongrass
Indigofera

And again in the laughable dreams category:
Kalmia
Mahonia aquifolium (Oregon grape-holly)
Calycanthus - the red-blooming one that does smell nice
Other relatively pest and disease-free shade shrubs, LOL

Thanks - hope someone has some of these!
Also, please read my exchange and member pages to find out my real email address -- it's not the one GardenWeb has on its email form.

Does anybody have any forsythia they could root for me? I'm probably the only gardener in MD who doesn't have any.


 o
RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

My usual wants
Japanese Painted ferns
Christmas ferns
cinnomon ferns
Ostich ferns

Daffodils

Foxgloves, if my seedlings damp off

The names of people I promised blue monk's hood divisions to last fall so I don't over promise divisions. (I have a memory like a steel sieve).

RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

I'm here! I am still quite confused about how all these various 'haves' and 'wants' get published--and where. But, I've updated my profile with some of mine! I'm a first-timer, and I can always bring food!!

Want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

Hello all!

I'm in a stinky position this year. As some of you are aware, we had a house fire in December. Mostly heat and smoke damage, but where there's air, there's smoke.
The restoration people took everything out to be cleaned, replaced or reimbursed, and threw out my bulbs and seeds. So no winter sowing for me, and no spring planted bulbs.

Along those lines, I am hoping someone might have some canna bulbs to share. I'm looking for red or bright orange. I had 'Bengal Tiger' 'Lanape' (with the bronzey striped foliage) and 'Red Futurity' I was looking forward to seeing bloom. I also lost my dark maroon dahlias. The seed collection I can only muse over, because I had so many I was going to plant.

I would love some 'Burgundy' Gaillardia, Spiderworts, Creeping Jenny, Lungworts, Salvia - blue and/or reds(Steven, got extra this year?), Agastache that is peach, some of that new Black Jack (?) sedum? Gosh, things that take full sun. Extras.

Luckily, as anal as I am, I have plant and seed records, so I'll be able to be reimbused for stuff like this, but in the meanwhile, I have pretty much nothing to share.

I shall bring lots of brownies Food. And lots of it. Wahhhhh.

Thanks for thinking of me!
Christine


 o
RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

Christine - I am going to bring you a big tupperware box full of seeds. Some are last falls, some a year older, but they should all germinate fine. Achillea, probably red salvia, regular purple foxgloves, and a gazillion seeds that I didn't plant this year. Have fun! Do you need any common daylilies, coreopsis, rockgarden iris, or anything I listed under 'haves'? Let me know.

Kimka - How do I send you email? I've got blue-blooming caryopertis ('Dark Knight') - I can give you a young plant that rooted itself last fall from a layered branch I guess, coreopsis 'Creme Brulee' (yellow) and purple foxgloves (unless the seedlings expire in the next month). Do you have any of my 'wants'? Please let me know! My email address is what I've listed on my trade/mypage, not the GardenWeb email form. Thanks.

Julia


 o
RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

Oh Christine,

I'm so sorry about the fire. I hadn't heard before. I can provide spiderwort divisions, although my markers have been lost and I won't know what colors you'll get--blue, purple or white. Since I have mostly shade I don't have much else for you unless you need blue monkshood. For annuals, I have a bucnh of calendulas started: pink zeolights and oranges. I've also got some mammoth stocks if you want.

Julia, I'll send you an email about a trade.

RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

*anything that's just particularly interesting or pretty
*an appropriately-sized, lidded container that I can use to store and shlepp kitchen scraps to the compost bin
*wisdom, advice, and knowledge!

Kelly,

I have some sweet autumn clematis. It's a bit invasive, but boy, will it cover a chain-link fence. It makes a lovely white cloud of tiny beautifully scented flowers in the fall.

 o
RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

Thanks all, for the kind thoughts.

I'm looking at a neat sedum, 'Black Jack' which I'd really like to have. Does anyone have a leaf or two?

Also, the same darned chickens that were laying eggs under my hosta last year, have taken advantage of us not living in our house this last winter. They've roosted and scooped out chicken-tummy-sized holes in the garden. It looks like they've killed some of my hosta (believe it or not!) and several columbine. Does anyone have any 'Crimson Star' or 'Black Barlow?'

They also dug up a heuchera 'Plum Pudding' that I'd really liked. Grrrr!

I'll see you on the Haves. I think I might be able to tease some things out of our gardens!

Thanks,
Christine

RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

I'm overwhelmed at what I've found at this site! I'm from Baltimore and will be bringing some desserts to pitch in, and don't want anything specific except to say that I have a new (to me) yard that's lacking any real landscaping. I can't wait!


 o
RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

I want to get some interesting heirloom tomato plants. Last year's swap provided a bunch of really good ones, thanks Laurel.

I am bringing a friend who has moved into a benignly neglected 3 acres and would benefit from the 'if the trunk is open and the plants are labled' policy.

See ya on the 6th.


 o
RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

I can't believe it, but I've lost all of two plants that have been relentlessly perennial in my garden for over a decade:

- Jewels of Opar, a low chartreuse groundcover (reseeding annual) with garnet seedpods
- Jacob Kline Monarda.

There -- I've confessed -- I killed off Monarda! It was an accident, in the course of eliminating a stand of artemisia Limelight and Tansy, but it's true.

Anyone got these two to spare, in addition to the private swaps I've arranged?

Lynn


 o
wanted - little wire thingies

If anyone has any of those little wire fences that press into the ground, I'd appreciate it. I don't care how ugly or rusty as I will be using them to hold down the deer netting in the vegetable garden.

I will be coming late so if you have to leave before I get there, please give them to my friend Kathleen.


 o

How 'bout a last minute want?

I'm teaching in the morning, so I won't arrive before 11:00, I don't think. I'd be thrilled if someone saved me a spot under a tree or up near Heniretta's driveway fence.

I'll be driving my gorgeous little red truck, and maybe, just maybe, bringing a little wagon train of my students. I'm hoping, anyway!

See you Saturday. I'm so excited.

I want your expertise! If I have time before the swap I'm going to dig up a few things I'd like to get identified. I think all are just weeds, except possibly a fleshy wildflower. May also have a cutting from a flowering bush. So, stop by my car and tell me what you think.

Thanks!


 o
RE: have: want list for mag spring swap may 6 in burtonsville md

sorry for the late notice, but just found out I can make it tomorrow...
if anyone has any extra fragrant plants, I would love to take them off your hands, especially fragrant creepers, like corsican mint, thymes, lavenders, lemony, anything underfoot...or low maintenance fragrant overhanging... or fragrant long blooming... night blooming (nicotinia?).

Also, advice on gardening while on immunosuppressants...

Thanks!
