I'd love to find some fennel and tarragon. Maybe some savory or some other herbs.

And definitely some tabasco peppers. I think I got a bad batch of seeds!

Adding to my wants list after watching what's coming up and what's died after this terribly long winter, I am also looking for some rooted highly scented rose cuttings (I am more partial to light pink and white/cream). If I can get guidance with unrooted cuttings, I am willing to try them, but I haven't had much luck before.


 o
RE: wanted: want: spring swap 2014 want list

I would like

rosemary
sage
artichoke plant? (I'm envious of my California daughter who has had one going for four years!)
native plants for dry and damp shade -- we have ripped out a ton of ivy and have to hold a hill together!

I also want a pussy willow cutting or plantlet and any type of heuchera, toad lily, turtlehead, or other native plant that loves shade to dappled shade, lots of clay, and occasional bouts of very damp soil. I need more things to plant along side oak leaf hydrangea/may apple/solomon's seal.


Thanks, Lisa

Campanula Cherry Bells
Anything red.
Dianthus, the kind with vibrant colors, not pink.

Well, I found the tarragon, so I no longer need that. But I'd really like to find some plain terra cotta clay pots.
