While I have no idea what I might have, I do have a fair idea of what I want.

Any shade tolerant plant, especially natives. This could be shrubs, perennials, bulbs, etc.

Any plant that doesn't mind wet feet, especially if they are also shade tolerant.

Large vines that can take over the space left by japanese honeysuckle, multiflora roses and other assorted nasties. Can be for sun or shade.

No invasives, please. I've got plenty of those already.

Forgot something. Whoever gave my DH veggie seedlings last year created a monster. He wants More! More! More! All I'll say is that it cannot be anything that vines, and must be tough enough to survive his style of gardening (anything worth doing is worth overdoing, at least for a week or two).

He was totally thrilled with his 'harvest', BTW. So, thank you!

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

I would really love as much liriope as someone wants to get rid of. I know the plant grows like crazy; I would like to cover a large area with it.

Unfortunately, I just moved in and I do not have (or know of) and plants to trade.

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

I tried this a few minutes ago but have no idea what happened. Hopefully it will work this time.
I want to turn most of my front yard into a garden, and would love:
Anything that attracts butterflies, bees, hummingbirds.
Anything under 8" or so, that can tolerate full sun, that I can put near the curb to spread out a bit.
Anything that loves both shade and water, we have a bit of a flood plain in the back yard.
Roses Roses Roses, any kind, any color.
Lilies (even orange/ditch ones)
Forsythia, if anyone has extras
Pretty much anything you have a ton of and want rid of, that doesn't require a lot of pampering, I like to try new things but am still learning so finicky plants don't like me much =)

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Okay, I have one more, after driving around this weekend - I'm not sure what they are, but if anyone has any seedlings/saplings of the trees with the white blossoms that are blooming now, I'd love a couple. Are they shadbushes? serviceberry trees? No idea. Love 'em, though. I've been tempted to pull off the highway and just dig one up but then that evil 'what if everybody did' thought goes through my head...the dangers of reading books with morals as a child...

Lynne, you don't want that tree. It's a fast grower, but because of its structure and weak wood, has a tendency to split at a young age. On top of it, it's pretty invasive as well, and outcompeting native species.

Here's a weird "want" - plastic buckets (roughly 5 gallon size) with snap-on lids and metal handles like cat litter comes in. I use them for storing various types of potting media, and also for extra water plants that are awaiting homes. I could use several if anyone has some.

I updated my exchange list on my member page - a couple things added, a couple things taken off. This is fun! I'm looking forward to my first swap - I hope my minivan is large enough to bring all my plants!!

Hey everyone, realized I hadn't posted my want list yet. I'm totally going to be there and I've already started a few things for other gardeners I've contacted. Aside from plants, I also am looking for clean barrels to use for rain buckets, since I don't want to pay for water during this summer's drought.

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Hi all! I haven't been to the swap before - really I've been lurking for years - and posted my haves, but I'm not sure what I want... Besides a bigger garden!

But, I can always make room for a shade loving hydrandrea, named hostas, a blue/purple hellebore or an interesting fern that would tolerate deep shade abuse.

I might have to dig up my hosta 'Great Expectations' and trade it as it doesn't seem fond of anywhere I've put it in my garden so far :(

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Hi, all! It's been awhile, but a few of you may remember me. I was the one who brought half-a-dozen or so plastic 50 gallon barrels to the spring swap last time we were in a severe drought. (Unfortunately I won't have the opportunity to get more before this swap.) I'm in a new, smaller place now, and have gradually been transforming bare yard into gardens. I had to leave a few things behind that I'm really coming to miss. Maybe someone here can help fill in the holes.

Virginia Bluebells
Acuba (someone had a field where these grew as weeds)
Sedum Acre (yes, really!)
Geraniums (cranesbills, not zonal)
Blue-eyed Grass
Cinnamon Fern
Ostrich Fern

And if anyone needs to thin their beds, I'll take as many of any kind of daffodils as they want to toss in my direction.

I'm looking forward to seeing old friends again and meeting new ones, too!

Hi all,

I'm a MAG swap newbie, and I have my first truly permanent garden ever (I've moved 15 times in the last 10 years and every time the backseat is reserved for plants). Needless to say I've been dreaming of this spring.

I would be interested in hardy herbs, "cottage-y" perennials (like daisies, echinacea, iris, rudbeckia), and small, creeping container-friendly things (like lobelia and alyssum). My particular favorites are nigella, columbine, and plants that "look like things" (eyeball, candy corn). I would also be interested in leaves or cuttings from unusual succulents.

You can contact me at jenfee AT gmail DOT com

Someone was asking on the 'have' thread about leftover/unwanted plants - I don't think there's much danger of plants getting left, but if there are any unwanted plants left, I'd be happy to take any that would be safe/happy at my childrens' school, they did a big green-up this past weekend and could use some more plants.

Does anyone have any unwanted rocks/fieldstones? I'd be happy to come collect them if you do. I'm looking for something that is fairly low (or can be sunk into the ground a bit) so I can make path edgings but still be able to mow over them.

There's no such thing as too much hosta or liriope for me....feel free to put any of these straight into my car :)

(It's maple tree desperation talking here.)

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Although I won't be there in person, I can't resist trying to make a few trades -- especially since Christine has been kind enough to be willing to act as my intermediary. Also, I do expect to be at Vlad's memorial, so if need be we can exchange some plants there -- I'm sure Vlad would not have minded!

I sent emails via Gardenweb to a few folks, but perhaps you would be kind enough to confirm here, so I know what to bring to Christine's on Friday:

Mauross, do you have a spare dwarf aruncus and maybe some ceratostigma? I can send you some Gladwin iris or Iris tectorum if you like, or check my list.

Annebert, would you have an uncommited dicliptera left, and perhaps a tecomaria? I don't see a wants list for you...

Wishdesign, I would be delighted to send you a whole bucket of grape hyacinth in return for a caraculla and a ground cherry or two.

Alison (weatherers) can I ask for some blackberry lily? I can send you LOTS of tovara, and think I can roust out a hellbore foetidissima.

By the way, kilngod & CollectorDi, I will look to see if my hyacinth beans have begun to sprout yet. The shiso has just begun to emerge -- I will have TONS of that by the end of May if someone wants to come by for a shovel tour after my exams are done...

That should hold me -- I don't want to be greedy. But I will certainly miss seeing you all!

Nothing like posting at the last moment! I have always depended upon the kindness of strangers.
I'm interested in plants:
- for a dry, shady slope,
- that attract butterflies and birds,
- also looking for herb plants.
Looking forward to Saturday.

Thanks,
Stan (Howndawg)

LynnT--

I didn't get your email, but I would love to trade the corkscrew vine and ground cherries for the muscari. Thank you so much, and sorry you can't make it to the swap!

kilngod, if giverny is offering them this year, ask her for mayapples. The ones she gave me last year are doing fine under a very large, very thirsty maple. Also wild ginger might do OK. If no one is offering it this year, let me know, and I'll dig you some of mine.


 o
RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Thanks Leslies - I've got a trade with giverny for the wild ginger already thinking those would work (and will be there a little early lookin' for mayapples).

LynneT - thanks for thinking of me on the hyacinth bean, though i didn't see anything that you were looking for that I have. Sorry we wil miss you at the swap.

I too emailed through GW to a few -- foodeefish (solomon's seal for succulents), tabassam (cherry bells for iris), madsquopper (bear's breaches for ??), mauross (dwarf aruncus, obediant plant for forget-me-not) -- as the emails weren't public to members. If any of you see anything on my list that interests you, please email me! If not, searching around at the swap is plenty of fun & I didn't do enough of that last year...I'll come find you :)

A sooo excited swapper,
Tina (kilngod)

Tina, I can sympathize with your Maple tree desperation. I have a very large silver maple that I'm doing battle with. It has a high canopy, so it is sunny and very, very, dry under there. What I've found is that xeric perennials do very well under those circumstances. The Agastache that I have to be careful with under other conditions is going nuts and multiplying like mad. Sedums really like it there. On the shadier part, I have Lamium established, and they're doing very, very well. I bet that epimedium and some Hellebores will probably be okay there as well. Just some extra ideas for you.


 o
RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Mauross,
I don't think, my email to you went through. If still available, could I have some Epimedium rubrum and Obedient plant. I have (from your list) basil and forget me not. Also, check out my list on "Haves"
Thanks

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

One last thing I forgot -- has anyone got any spare rhubarb? I haven't seen it at the big box stores this year for some reason, and I have saved a big space in my new sun bed for it...

Thanks!

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

I'm am so bummed.
None of my cannas came back. The mice made nests of them in the garage and chomped on the bulb things. I was hoping.

Does anyone have any red cannas with burgundy foliage? I love Red Futurity and will probably buy some if no one has any to trade. I figured it doesn't hurt to ask.

I've also lost a Huechera (or heucherella) 'Ebony and Ivory.' I'd love to trade something for some of that. It's a perfect little plant. The voles thought so, too.

I'm building wire mesh cages for everything this year. Screw this.

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Christine, I have a Red King Humbert you can have, and I might have a Phaison left (striped foliage, not burgundy). Let me know if you're interested.

I have a big old metal bread box that I use to store my canna rhizomes. Although now I've outgrown it and also use heavy plastic buckets with lids, Rubbermaid storage containers with lids, etc. I also suggest strategically placed mousetraps.

for kaffeina

I have white siberian iris. Let me know if you want me to save you one.

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Watergal,
I'd love the canna. I'll pass on the water iris, but I'll bet Bonnie would jump on them. If it has the word "iris" in it, she loves it. :) White would compliment her purple.

I have just learned that I don't need to lift canna around here. I had no idea and will try not to this next season. If elephant ears continue to survive, I think if I do my normal, 3'' mulch, the cannas should, too .

Mouse traps: Rich caught 23 mice in one afternoon. We ran out of peanut butter and they started eating the trapped ones. Totally pukey. It'll help when we're not under construction anymore. In 10 years when that happens.

Thanks for the canna. :)
Christine

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Christine, wow, where are you that's a zone 7b? I'm SO jealous!

I've had Red King Humbert make it through the last 2 winters in a fairly protected spot in my own yard, here on the line between zones 6 and 7. I've never had any other cannas make it through a winter outdoors, though.

From my observations around the area, it seems that the red flowered ones are more winter hardy than some of the more exotic varieties.

I DID have a zone 7 giant calla overwinter this year outside. Yippee! With such a late winter and so much wetness, I didn't expect it to make it. It's on a well-drained hill. Maybe next year I'll have enough to bring to the swap. It looks like a speckled elephant ear. Here's a photo (you can buy one if you don't want to wait!):

Wish Design:
I'll bring you strawberries (we talked about this, no?) and I can bring you both chocolate mint (yes, smells like chocolate mint) and spearmint. let me know if you need both.

Busyasabee:
Find me. I'll have named and unnamed verigated hosta.

Watergal, too cool! :)
I live in waterless hell sometimes, but things do seem to winter well -- if the voles don't get them. I'm taking LynnT's suggest and buying wire mesh today to make cages for bulbs. I'm tired of watching foliage wilt before my very eyes.

LynnT -- didn't you get my email about the bucket of Blackberry Lilies sitting next to your bucket of Jacob Klein on the cinder blocks by my pine tree? They're a'waiting you. Hosta Albo Margineta is potted, sitting on the ground in a plastic tray ready to go to the swap. It's not labeled yet, but if you don't have any... It's a nice, medium-sized upright.

I'm ready.
I want you to bring plastic bags to take home the stuff that sulks. Can't wait!

i'm sad lynn won't be there tomorrow

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

Hi, this is the "poobah" (whatever that means). If you have a last minute look on this, consider bringing some stick-um name tags. We will have paper, pens, and tape so you can put your name on your car, but we have none that you can paste on your chest to tell others who your are. If there are as many people as last year, this would be immensely helpful (I'll check with the drugstore, just in case). Gardengranma is getting on in years (and I am not the only one). Remember - call if you are lost 301-421-0284 -- someone will be near the phone to help you.
Tomorrow sounds like just the right day for a swap. If we run out of parking spaces, you can park along the street leading up to our house (the neighbors are great and will not complain). I am really looking forward to seeing all of you. For DHs, who would like to read the paper rather than swap, send them inside, the house is open to all. Coffee will be ready.

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

I'm bringing nametags. I'm also bringing the plants that Lynn wants

RE: wanted: list for 2007 mag spring swap

This is so last minute that maybe I should post it tomorrow, but....... magazines and books!
THAT IS ALL
