have: a few big shrubs, etc.

Hi all!

I have two, 15-20', dark pink crape myrtles. They're probably 15 years old.

I have two, sprawling, antique, pale, pale purple lilacs.

They're extremely large or mature, so if you're feeling frisky, this would be the time of year, given the rain and current gardening energy. I can not and am not going to dig them up, and pulling them out with a car or truck is not an option. if you're willing to dig, all I want in return is enough soil and/or leaf-gro type stuff to fill the holes way over the top. When it settles, I don't want big craters. Make sense?

Then I have a bunch of stuff that can be throw in on the side, which is also my Haves list for the swap:

Unlimited ditch lilies
Creeping Jenny,
Many different mints
Monardas 'Jacob Cline' and 'Raspberry Wine' and a mystery light pink one.
Vlad's thornless blackberry canes
'American Heritage' Raspberry canes (YUM!)
Eupitorium 'Gateway' and 'Little Joe'

I'll put up more, but this is what I'm thinking right now.
I'm at the south end of Bowie, and the top of Upper Marlboro (Rtes 214/301).

Hi Christine,

Gardenweb email seems to be down and I can't find your address anywhere. I'd like to have some Little Joe if it's indeed the dwarf. Have plenty of the other types already.

By the way, that small rubra crape myrtle I got from you a few years ago isn't so small anymore. it's now up to about 6 feet and still blooms like crazy.

Hi,

Christine I tried to send you an email about your Swap trade list but also got an error message.

I'm interested in your Heritage raspberry and Jacob Cline monarda. I have white yarrow seed you're welcome to and, though I don't have amaranth, I'd like to offer some Brightest Brilliant Rainbow quinoa, another ornamental plant with edible grain.

Thanks for your consideration!
Regina

Please email me if you are interested in these or any other selections from my trade list.

RE: MAG Plant Swap

Dear Christine,

Just like everybody else, I am unable to email you directly. I am interested in your white bleeding heart. Will you want to trade with me? Please check out my trade list and let me know if something interests you.

Christine,

I would love one of the Japanese maple seedlings if it is still available.

Please look at my Haves list.

Thanks

Christine,

I never heard back from you if you wanted what I have from your "wants" list" for the swap tomorrow

I have a creme d'casis holly hock seedling and a great big elephant ear bulb if you want them. If not, I won't bring them tomorrow.

I would love some of your red raspberry canes since most of mine have died in the last drought or have been drowned this year.
