2008 Spring MAG Swap: Plants You WANT List

DIRECTIONS for the WANTED 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.

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 or other food to the swap. There is a separate HAVE thread for food.

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

7. Much more info on the Haves list thread.

Wishing everyone a great swap! Happy gardening!

RE: WANTED: want list for 2008 spring mag swap

I'd love some water lilies, not lotus and/or other flowering water plants, pink or yellow shades of hellebores and unusual tropicals. I have no idea what I'll have. Probably some of everything, similar to what I brought to last years swap. It just depends on what I'm heavy on in the greenhouse at that time but I promise to bring more basil this year. lol

I'm running out of space but I would love to try to grow gas plant, dictamnus alba or rosea.

There would always be room for another tree peony. If you've seen the Disney version of Wind in the Willows and remember how Toad reacted when he saw the Motor Car, you'll know what I was like when I saw my first tree peony.

I have a yellow deciduous azalea but it's only about 4 inches tall, so a back-up would be nice!


 o

Eric: Can't e you from the GW, but I have bog sage and am happy to share..


 o
RE: WANTED: want list for 2008 spring mag swap

The only thing I really want is a couple of 'Eva's Purple Ball' heirloom tomato seedlings. Seeds for them would be OK too. They are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, maybe a few daylilies.

RE: WANTED: want list for 2008 spring mag swap
