2007Spring MAG Swap: Plants you Have List

DIRECTIONS for the HAVES list:

    If you're new to the swaps, please take the time and have the courtesy to read these posts. They're here to help everyone have a good time.
    Yes, you can come if you don't have any plants. Your assignment will be to bring brownies food. Anything chocolate that you'd normally bring to a pot luck will be fine. Food & other contributions can be discussed under the MAG SPRING SWAP FOOD thread. Please chit-chat about it there, not here.
    Post a list of the plants you HAVE on this thread, ideally with Latin names as best you can to avoid confusion, and cultivar names if they have them.
    This thread is not for your Wants. :) That's what the MAG Spring Swap: Plants you Want thread is for.
    Yes, Please also list other garden stuff, such as seeds, tools or books, or all things Garden that you wish to swap or give away. Another man's trash....
    Read other people's lists. If you see things you want and would like to swap or trade for, e-mail the person directly to arrange it. Do that via private email by clicking on your person's name at the top of their post.
    Do NOT arrange the swap or trade on this thread, please.
    Do update your posting here and your member page with your Haves and Wants; feel free to link your post here to any Plant Exchange page you may have.

    This is important:

    When you bring your plants, MARK RESERVED PLANTS (i.e., plants for which you have a pre-arranged swap). LABEL your plants if possible. We often forget which was what by the time we get them home! Popsicle stick, plastic spoons, or other "plantable markers" are great, as they can be popped right in to the ground along with the plant.

    At the swap, please do NOT take anything that is labeled for someone else, or is NOT labeled "Free" or "Please Take." Ask. That's all you have to do.

    Questions? just include them in your post here, but please don't ask something addressed a gudzillion times. If you're asking and the answer is here, I'm going to know you've not appreciated my epic work.

    Have fun finding new homes for your surplus plants and discovering new plants you didn't know you needed!

Did I forget anything? Of course! So, let me know so I can fix it!

Wishing everyone a great swap! Happy gardening,
Directions to Gardengramma's House

It's totally nuts to do this now, when I haven't even the faintest notion what will live or die, but when has that ever stopped me? This list is purely speculative at this point. I will add/subtract once I have an actual head count of what lived and died, and what I can root/divide/otherwise propagate, and of course, what lived that I even forgot I have. Pretty much everything in my 'Have Plenty Of' list, I will definitely have plenty of. The updates will be done on my trades page here:

http://www.gardenweb.com/members/exch/suja

The highly speculative list:

Plants I'll have in limited quantities
*Helianthus 'Lemon Yellow'
*Boltonia SnowBank
*Boltonia Pink Beauty
*Malva alcea fasgiata
*Miscanthus Purpurascens
*Miscanthus variegatus
*Miscanthus Morning Light
*Achillea Taygetea
*Shasta Daisy 'Becky'
*Dianthus Arctic Fire
*Kalimeris pinnafitida
*Salvia Blue Cloud
*Gaillardia Fanfare seedlings (maybe)
* One pink David Austin rose (either Mary Rose or Cottage Rose, I think)
* Caryopteris 'Worcester Gold' (Usually roots wherever the branches touch the ground)

For MAG swap purposes, I will only bring the plants I have plenty of, by request.

I always have plenty of:
*Purple Monarda (Either Blue Stocking or Prairie Night can't remember which)
* Rudbeckia Goldsturm
* Anthemis Kelwayi
* Calamintha Sylvatica
* Lamb's Ears
* Salvia Uliginosa
* Nepeta 'Walker's Low'
* Agastache Blue Fortune
* Anemone Robustissima
* Baby Buddleia plants - blue-purple
* Monarda Jacob Cline

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

I can't bring them all. I will only be bringing plants I have requests for. Of course, I will bring a few extras, but if you are interested in something, speak up! Even if you don't have anything to trade me, let me know and I'll still bring it if I can.

Sunbright Supreme Sunflower
Moonbright Sunflower
Bohemian Rhapsody Sunflower
Columbine
Halberd-Leaf Rosemallow
Red/Burgundy Columbine

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

It's too early for me to know exactly what I'll have but there will be an assortment of veggies, herbs, annuals and perennials, some pretty good sized plants depending on what I have extras of in the greenhouse at the time of the swap. I'll have to see how successful my attempt at winter sowing has gone as far as seedlings go. I should also have some seeds leftover. I'll update here when I have a better idea of what I'll have.

 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Mudsquopper, I'll take some your ice plants.
Not sure what I have yet.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

The only certain things in my garden are azaelas (fushia, white, pink, red)and English Ivy. Plenty of each of those.

I will post later if I find anything else.

Jen


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Karyn,

The answer is yes. Bring nursery pots and trays. People always take them, whether they are little or big. I personally can use a bunch of 3-6 inch nursery pots.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Forsythia for KimKa and anyone else who wants some. (No trade required.) Typing it here so I won't forget who wanted it.

I won't have a real list until it all starts coming up and I realize I'm being overrun. So be sure to put your needs on the 'wants' list, and you might be surprised. I don't really do pre-trades, I just bring it if I have it and someone indicated they were looking for it....


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Have:

COREOPSIS seedlings--tickseed species, I think. I'll pot up a whole bunch rather than toss them on the compost! Free to anyone or will trade. I'd hate to throw them away. Do let me know ahead of time if you want them, so I can be sure to have one or more for you.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Is anyone willing to take African Violets? I started with a few leaves expecting one plant per leaf.
Surprise, from a few I got 7 or 8 babies. Obviously, I've had a population explosion on these and need to make some room.
I'm sure I'll have outdoor stuff too but for now I KNOW I have too many violets.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

In addition to the usual suspects listed below, I have these, unless the late winter freeze crapped them out after I had put them in pots:

Baby Japanese maple (18 inches tall)
Daylily Happy Returns, but there's probably obedient plant mixed in
Low-growing cotoneaster
Japanese kerria, regular yellow flowered
Perennial hibiscus (red)
Several big chunks of porcupine grass (miscanthus strictus)

USUALLY HAVE LOTS OF THESE:
o Bee Balm (Monarda) - red and purple
Sedums (Weinhenstephaner Gold, Angelina, Dragon's Blood, and even acre if you really want that)
Yellow Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis)
Tall perennial verbena (Verbena bonariensis)
Obedient plant (Physostegia virginiana)
Spiderwort (Tradescantia), mostly blues/purples
o THESE MIGHT BE LIMITED:
o Perennial ageratum (Eupatorium coelestinum)
Euphorbia robbiae (nice evergreen, but spreads like a mother)
Pink malva moschata
Siberian Iris (Iris siberica), various purples and blues
Little bluestem grass (Schizachyrium scoparium)
Porcupine grass (Miscanthus strictus)
Ribbon grass (Phalaris arundinacea)
Mexican feather grass (Stipa tennuifolia)
Cardinal flower (lobelia cardinalis)
Crocosmia (red, probably Lucifer)
Rose Campion (Lychnis coronaria)
Canna Lily tubers (Red Stripe, plus unknown reds and pinks)
Willow leaf helianthus (tall, as in 10-12 feet)
Purple ice plant (Delosperma cooperi)
Spiny Bear's Breeches (Acanthus spinosus)
Hosta Big Daddy

My friend and I might be able to make the swap. She isn't a GW member, but I'm dragging her along.

She has some Mayapple (hopefully growing by then) that she'd like to trade for Virginia Bluebells.

I will have a few Resurrection Lily bulbs (aka Naked Ladies).

If the native honeysuckle comes back after my efforts at removing a lot it, I may have some of that, too.

Will update as I see what extra things I have growing.

LeslieS, I'm zee elsewhere, so we may get to meet after all.

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Okay, this may be a little weird, but since I don't have a lot of plants to bring to the swap, (and after playing today in the yard) I think it's a valid offer, especially if you love to garden but hate or have problems digging the big hunks. I will haul my rototiller to you and dig your garden, within 20 or so miles of Bowie, MD (but the distance is negotiable, especially if the route doesn't involve the beltway). I looked into renting one for a few hours or a day and that was pretty reasonable, but when I found one at a pretty good price that was easy for me to handle, I bit the bullet and bought it and am SO glad I did! Love it Love it Love it. There's not going to be much lawn left in the front yard by the time I'm done - but I'll have plenty of room for all the plants that I got from Susan plus whatever ends up in my truck at the swap!

Bunnie Compost. That reminds me, have we heard from Prof Dirt of manure and compost fame?

RE: have: Question

  • Posted by zebz 7-8 (My Page) on
    Tue, Apr 3, 07 at 17:05

I've looked for, but couldn't find, information on how the plants for the swap should be prepared.

When trading hostas by mail, people would wash off all soil from the roots, wrap the hosta in dampened newspaper or paper towels and plastic bags.

Is it acceptable to do the swap plants in the same manner, or do they have to be in soil? That could be a problem, because I don't have any extra pots.

Thanks.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Bunny manure? Someone wants bunny manure? I have a giant chinchilla bun and for one bunny, she produces a LOT of bunny manure (or at least my huband thinks so..)

I didn't realize this was a potentially useful swap item - I have been dumping it in the flower beds and onto what might eventually become a compost pile, but mostly because we have a low spot in the yard and we're trying to fill it little by little..

I'm in Bowie..

Lynne


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Ruthie, obedient plant is native to the area and that is probably why it is doing so well, but definitely not a weed to most people. Very pretty indeed though!

Z, most people put their stuff in pots, but that is because we all have so many from obsessively buying plants from the garden centers. :-D Wet paper towels or newspaper are also acceptable, but might be harder to do for bigger plants. You could also try using plastic bags so that you can keep a bit of moist soil for the roots.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Z, I'll be bringing empty pots to the swap (I ended up with most of the leftover pots at Susan's on Saturday), and I'm sure others will be bringing extras as well, so even if you bring your plants in newspapers or bags, they'll probably end up in a pot before the day is done. Or if you're reasonably close to Bowie, we can link up and you can have some ahead of time. I'll be out of town next week but will be around after that.

Lynne
zachsmom@iname.com


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Z - a chunk of plant in wet newspaper is acceptable. Don't do anything so twee as washing off the roots.

I will not be doing my vegetable garden but I am starting a bunch of peppers and tomatoes for those who are interested, also any other seeds that strike my fancy.

I will also bring rooted cuttings of Sedum "Blue Spruce", even with this strange winter it managed to grow a foot in all directions. i have it in my hellstrip bed where it gets no water and no love and it looks fabulous.

And as ever, about 10 pots of autumn clematis.

Looks like we have a lot of newbies - yeah - just remember we don't always do things by direct trade, A gives to B who gives to C who gives to A, so be open to "paying it forward" and depending on serendipity to fill your cars up again.

The reason people are writing out their email addresses is to keep spam robots from "harvesting" them. From what I understand, there are automated programs that scour bulletin boards, pull off the email addresses, and then send spam to them. They aren't programmed to find the addresses if they don't have the usual "at" and "dot" characters in them.

Of course, I wasn't clever enough to do that earlier in this thread, so I guess I can look forward to even more spam. Yippee!

Giverny--is the spice bush still available? I would like it if it is. You can e-mail me at: DawnPalka AT Verizon DOT net. Hope the spammers don't catch on to our evasive technique!


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

I should have these, subject to the usual weather and pest-related contingencies. Will probably add other perennials later, once I have a better idea what's wintered over.

This year's seedlings or volunteers, unless otherwise specified. Quantities of most are limited.

Alyssum saxatile
Boltonia (given to me as 'Snowbank,' but I don't think it is), divisions (have LOTS)
Brugmansia (from cuttings)
--'Charles Grimaldi'
--'Axelrose'
Coleus 'Inky Fingers,' from cuttings
Chasmanthium latifolium (Northern sea oats)
Helleborus x hybridus (Lenten Rose), fall-started seedlings
Lysimachia 'Alexander,' divisions (digging out a planting, have quite a bit)
Plectranthus amboinicus (Cuban oregano), variegated, from cuttings
Salvia azurea
Salvia coccinea 'Lady in Red'
Salvia guaranitica, divisions
Salvia reptans (upright form)
Sedum 'Vera Jameson,' from last year's cuttings
Verbascum 'Southern Charm'

In-person trades in advance of the swap are fine, too (Read: I'd rather not have to water a bunch of pots for longer than necessary!) I'm in Hyattsville, about 2 miles from Univ. of MD.

Sounds like direct email is better than Gardenweb referrals. My address is: sfmiller AT umd DOT edu

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Mea,
I think the main reason why others are not using the gardenweb link to email is because some of the emails sent that way are not going through to the recipients.
We started using direct email when a few of us emailed each other during Susan's garden digging and we couldn't get through to one another. Messages were missed. It was frustrating.
Another good result I guess is to keep the "spam robots" from getting in.

I just saw Watergal looking for covered plastic buckets on the 'have' thread. I always bring a dozen or so compliments of the kitties :-) Alas, the source is drying up as I've switched to 'World's Best Cat Litter' which comes in plastic bags. But the stack in the freezer room is towering at the moment, so I do hope others still want these.

Also remembered that Steven wanted a cutting of the pink brug which I got from him a few years ago. It's been in water in gh all winter and is root city. I'll need to pot that up to get it used to soil.....

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

In addition to my regular exchange list (and I don't know if this is totally wildly off topic) I also garden in my aquariums and have some excess aquatic plants I can bring on request.

Rotala indica
Micranthemum micranthemoides (baby tears)
Vesicularia dubyana (java moss)
Ludwigia repens x arcuata (Narrow leaf ludwigia)
Ludwigia repens (broadleaf ludwigia)
Common duckweed (now this stuff can be a menace, but some folks find use for it)
Cryptocoryne Wendtii brown

Houseplants:
Unrooted african violet leaves (some doubles)
kalanchoe - yellow blooms

Bulbs:
Daffodil "Salome" - It doesn't like me apparently, producing blooms in poor numbers every other year. Anyone who has better luck with them is welcome to them.

To shady_lady:
Can not find your email and since GW email isn't working. Here it goes. Please bring your excess aquarium plants that would tolerate low light. I have plenty of water-space for them. :)

Got several big hydrangea bushes right behind the fence, guess they tolerate shade well, pink color. I could divide and bring you some.

RE: have: oh, yeah

I also have an abundance of a mystery fern that was here when I moved in. Mature height is about 3 - 4', upright habit, though the fronds will trend outward after a heavy rain, woody base that almost looks as if someone buried a pinecone. It self-propagates with underground runners (stolons?) and does so very enthusiastically if it's happy. It can take a few hours of direct afternoon sun without problem. It's very happy where it is, and I'd be very happy to share if this sounds like a solution to your landscaping problem. Personally, I want the space for other things.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

This is my first swap, so here goes......

I have 3 junipers that I can dig up (pics)
1 Cherry Tree (not sure what kind, but pic, I know this is a big trade, but it can't stay where it is, and I have nowhere else to put it :)
4 Salvia May Night
5 Jade cuttings (rooted, and potted up in ceramic pots)
Several named AV's (babies and suckers, or unrooted leaves, check my trade list)
Lots of seeds (check my trade list)

That's all I can think of right now!

Have list additions

I also found on Friday I have extras of:

What I believe to be euonymous 'Wintercreep' - it was here when I bought the place, and it's my best guess.

Spiderwort 'Osprey', which has a pretty white bloom with striking blue stamens.

A black-eyed Susan variety which I've now forgotten, and my stupid metal tags all faded. It's uhm.. Rudbeckia anonymous. Whatever variety it is, it is tolerant of a good bit of shade, volunteers freely and attracts a beautiful yellow finch I'm afraid I don't know the name of either.

cherry bells campanula
creeping jenny

variegated ribbon grass
lamb's ear

Jacob Kline monarda
mazus reptans
bog salvia (light blue flowers)

Hi all,

This year is my first real garden, so I don't have much to bring, but one thing I do have is tons of is english ivy (hedera helix). I can pretty much bring as many cuttings as someone wants. If you email me (jenfee AT gmail DOT com) in the next couple of days I can throw some in soil with rooting horomone. They'll probably have some nice roots by the time of the swap. If you want to groundcover an area, here's your big chance.

Shasta daisy - 'Becky'
mazus reptans
hardy mums - pot luck on color and variety (they were 50 cent end-of-season rescues that rewarded me generously for giving them homes)

What happens to all of the plant that nobody wants after the swap?

Okay, two questions.

Do people have to take their offerings back home with them if no one else wanted them?

Maybe three.

How large are the plants that most people trade? I don't want to be skimpy in what I offer, but I do want to be able to share with many the limited amount of plants that I have.

No more questions -- for now.

I don't know how often it happens that no one wants a plant. Usually, there are enough newbies around that are happy to take just about any plant off someone's hand. However, we do have rules to deal with such contingencies. If, after lunch, you look at a plant someone still has, you have to take one. If you ask about it, you have to take two. Also, be careful about leaving the trunk/door of your car open; some people aren't beyond sneaking a plant or two in there while you aren't looking.

As for the size of plants, I've received anything from itty-bitty seedlings to ginormous shrubs. It's hard to mandate size, because some plants (like Iris) can be given out in huge clumps, while a pickier, slower growing perennial or small plant may only make tiny divisions.

The way I see it, I don't give out plants if I don't feel that they'll grow for me. The smallest are generally in Bluestone perennial size containers, and my largest are generally in gallon pots. I also have a tendency to compensate for smaller plants by giving more of them.

I still have no idea what plants I'll be bringing. There will be some tomato seedlings for sure. Probably some brug cuttings. I'll also have market packs of annuals and some 4" potted plants. I'll also probably have some seedlings from what I winter sowed that didn't make it into the garden. I'll also have nursery pots and trays. A couple people emailed me with specific requests but the only one I remember was Nate's voodoo lily. If you emailed me about a particular plant can you send me a reminder?

Boltonia (given to me as 'Snowbank,' but I don't think it is), divisions (have LOTS)

One more addition to my have list:

Castor bean seedlings

WARNING: When they will set seeds, the seeds are highly poisonous to pets and kids (and adults too). The foliage is also somewhat poisonous. Poisonous only if you eat them, not to the touch.

My dog has developed a taste for grazing on the foliage, so I have decided not to plant these. Anyone want them? They get quite tall very fast, good for a tropicalismo bed.

Here's an update:

My tomato seedling crop has been really poor this year for some reason. I will have several, though. I will also have a few sweet peppers, and some roses:

- A huge "Banshee" - pink, fragrant, once-bloomer. Henrietta, do you want it for your rose hedge?

- A smaller "Banshee"

- a "Shailer's Provence"

- a couple of very small plants of the noisette Crepuscle - note that if you live in Zone 6 it probably will be too cold for it

I will also have assorted seeds and gardening magazines, and some unidentified iris and maybe some other things I dug up for the fall swap that I missed.

Janet M. might have some plants for me to bring along, as she can't make it to the swap.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

I think my mystery shrub is a spirea. It grows to about waist height (but I think it should have been cut back severely in the fall) and has tiny pink flowers that don't last very long. I have three or four bushes of it that really need a new home. If you want the largest bush in all it's glory, let me know, otherwise, I'm going to cut them all back, divide them and plop them in pots (I'll leave a branch or two for identification, though). I really hope someone wants this - they're nice bushes but in the wrong place in the yard and we just don't like them.

I apologize for not posting sooner -- I am studying for a certification exam next Wednesday, and don't know how much time I will have to dig. Check my GW wants list if there is anything you GOTTA have now; I will be happy to have visitors in June for shovel tours (after the next two exams are done, and when the iris will be better divided).

For now I have:
Monarda Blackberry Wine
solid-green hosta plantagenaria (fragrant blooms)
hellebore orientalis seedlings
giant burnet (related to salad burnet -- ornamental bronze mound for part-shade)
hellebore foetidissima
seedling viburnum serrata (nice shrub)

if someone wants, I can bring
iris tectorum (japanese roof iris, blue or white)
marsh marigold
tovara virginica "painter's palette"
solidago Fireworks
large miscellaneous seedling-origin phlox (probably magenta)

Gardenwatch, I'd love to trade for your milkweed! I sent you an email through GW, but I know they don't always go through.

To add to my 'have's' list:

2 Heuchera 'Purple Palace' (I think)

WaterGal, I'll take those castor bean seedlings. I can plant them in my front yard where my pets are not allowed. Their domain is the grassless backyard. ;)

I'm also interested in jewelweed.
I wrote to WaterGal about the castor beans, but again, I don't think it went through, either.

This is frustrating, isn't it? Perhaps we should arrange a separate thread that says: HAVE: a trade with ....

Can you set up a Google or Yahoo! email and get around EarthStink and their blocking? That might be the easiest way to get around this.

Also, I seem to have trades setup with about half the people here (you should see my spreadsheet; it's ridiculous!). So, if you want to use me as your proxy, I'll be happy to help in any way I can.

Janet M. dropped off a bunch of alliums for me to take to the swap - she's not sure what variety they are, but the leaves are about a foot tall and the flowers are about the same color as chives flowers.

I have a tulip poplar(Liriodendron tulipifera)that has to find a new home. It is currently ~ 3 feet tall. Supposedly it doesn't transplant well, probably because not enough of the taproot can be dug out, and it really shouldn't be planted too close to structures.

If anyone wants this, I'll try to dig it up versus just chopping it.


 o
RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Additional Haves (seedlings from wintersowing/volunteers):

Dianthus "black magic"
love lies bleeding
Mini Sunflowers (granddaughters of Incredible, parents 1ft tall)
Bleeding Heart
Zinnia, dwarf pompom mix
Zinnia, "green envy"
Snow-in-summer

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Wish Design,
May I have some of your Corkscrew vine?

Zee, I'd take your Tulip Poplar off your hands. :) I'm adding a bit below (3rd time) but if you have a wish list, let me know. There's a chance....

Lynn, if you're still getting rid of your Spirea, I'll come dig it later. We also discussed a fork at Susan's, but got carried away chatting at your truck. If you still have it as an extra, I'd love it.

Kilngod, I'd love some Dianthus 'black magic' and Zinnia 'green envy' if you have any left.

I've written to everyone about these, but don't think any mail has made it through the frontier.

I am adding to my list:
Solid lime green, upright hosta
Green and yellow mounding, medium hosta
Ditch lilies
a TON of Heuchera 'Purple Palace'
and a bunch of either Red 'Fairy wings' columbine or
blue 'Beidermeier' columbine. They're seedlings, so your guess is as good as mine.

Goodness.
I'm glad I started potting ahead!

Christine,

I'll bring the tulip poplar for you, but can't promise anything about it's continued lifespan after I dig it up. I don't have a large enough pot, so it will be wrapped in wet newspaper and a plastic bag.

Regarding the jewelweed for you and Christy, it will most likely be greatly wilted once it is dug up. However, I sent some to Pennsylvania with my sister once and when she planted it, it perked up -- then the deer ate it.

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

zebz, my neighbor gave me a liriodendron in the fall of 2005 and I moved it last fall when it was already 5' tall to its permanent home. It didn't miss a beat either time (and I wasn't gentle last year (in the cold, in the dark and in the rain). A spring move will probably be harder, but I'll bet it will be OK.

I have a bunch of Tulip Poplar, so if this one doesn't work out, Christine is more than welcome to come on over and dig up as many as she'd like.

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Suja,
Would you buy a house closer in?
To me?
It would be fun... I promise.

C.

Kaffiena,
Tell me about your blue spruce? I'm interested.

Thanks!

RE: have: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Christine, if Zee's tulip poplar doesn't make it (and Suja decides to stay where she is instead of moving closer in), there is a source in Bowie as well. I got one last fall that did well after transplant but didn't make it through the winter. The person I got them from has many more seedlings/saplings, and I'm sure we could go get one if we ask.

You can come dig my spirea (and some hosta) whenever you like. There is a big spirea that has your name on it now. (Sigh of relief!) I'll bring some parts of smaller ones to the swap though, in case anyone else wants some. And I'll try to remember the fork, but if I forget it you can have it when you come get the spirea..oh, wait, maybe I should hold the fork hostage, and you can use it to dig up the spirea.. =)

To everyone: I'll be turning off my computer now and won't be back online before the swap. If anyone else requests something, I'll not see it. Sorry. See y'all tomorrow.
