2007 Fall 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: 2007 fall mag swap: plants you want list

I'm still working on the new gardens, and will be expanding a couple of the established areas.

As Christine knows, I'm really not picky about color, I just want plants that will grow and blossom, or that have pretty foliage.

- Marigold seeds (any kind/color, they're great under the climbers on the chainlink fence!)

- Any low-growing nandina.

- Anything knee height-ish that will take full sun. (annuals or perennials, doesn't really matter)

- Anything that takes part shade that will climb but not go crazy (I don't want to have to chase it up the power pole or onto the neighbor's shed).

- And until such time as the yard runneth over, if you've got extras and they're not thugs/hooligans or super finicky, I'll take 'em.

See you there!
