...and perhaps some other stuff. I'll post again when I am sure I can get there.

RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

Do you guys realize this is the 10th year of the swap? The first one was in 2004, if I'm not mistaken.

I, too, have

  • hellebores (coming out my bottom) Talk about reseeding!
  • transcendia, both the blue and bright yellow (Sweet Kate?), which tends to revert,
  • tons of hosta, some named, some not
  • Creeping Jenny
  • Chocolate vine to root, Might have some rooted pieces.
  • Liriope
  • Ditch lilies coming out my ears
  • Bright yellow helianthus (aggressive reseeder, 5-6' tall)
  • Probably some Heuchera, some named, some not
  • Actual, orange tiger lily seedlings (not ditch lilies)

    I'll post more as I dig. I'm repotting things today.

  •  o
    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    I'll have:

    Lavender lilac suckers, a big wad
    Nope - 2 full lilac bushes will not be excavated this year.
    Nope- Dogwood saplings (mix of white and pink) did not make it here from my mothers' house.

    **"Seat of the pants" rule: not pre-arranging trades this year. Keeping it really simple.

    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    I blame the slow start on the weather. Not only are the plants behind, but it's just hard to get excited when it's cold or snowing.

    My Haves -

    balloon flower
    bleeding heart
    basil seeds
    cilantro seeds

    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    Thank you Tina, I love the idea of not pre-arranging trades this year. Life is way too complicated right now. I will bring a few of everything I listed and go from there.

    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    took a quick peek at the backyard, and this is what I have available:
    Japanese anemone (pamina - pink)
    turtleheads (pink)
    autumn joy sedums
    cranesbill geranium
    hens & chicks
    lambs ears (Helen von stein, non-flowering)
    hostas (no ID)

    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    Have just spent the am in the garden culling things for Saturday before the rain.

    i can add to my list above:
    carex ice dance
    one 2" japanese maple
    a few 2" seedlings thai basil
    a few strawberry plants
    2 lilac offshoots of a hybrid "miss Kim" only grows to about 6'x6' lots of flowers but smell is more like narcissus than typical lilac

    Now, I know that several people have said they didn't want to pre reserve, but for me, if I don't hear from anyone, I probably won't dig the pachysandra, climbing hydrangea or the carex, just to add to the compost pile if no one wants them, so be forewarned if you're interested

    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    I've made a last minute decision to come. I've missed the last couple years!

    green and gold
    toad lily
    bleeding heart (dicentra spectabilis)
    lily of the valley
    some variety of centaurea (small flowers that are light pink)
    dwarf comfrey

    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    It looks like I will still have tomatoes, mostly mortgage lifters. I think I can also spare a couple of habaneros, but they are pretty tiny this year. So much so that I'm no sure if I should bring them. But I will if people want them.

    RE: HAVE: 2014 Spring Swap Have Lists

    along with all the pond plants i am bringing I will have:

    Monarda Jacob Cline 2 large pots
    lamb's ears seedlings 6 small pots
    solomon's seal plain green several pots
    pink lily of the valley 8-10 pots
    sedum plant 1
    ajuega- blue flowers 3 large pots
    columbine native colors 2 pots

    I do not have any prearranged trades so all of these plants will be freebies for anyone to take.
