Aquasco Swap: Plants you Have List for
The First Annual Aquasco Fall Plant Swap
Sept. 30, 2006

DIRECTIONS for the HAVES list:

0. 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.

1. Do NOT arrange the swap or trade on this thread.

2. Post a list of the plants you HAVE on this thread, ideally with Latin names to avoid confusion, and cultivar names if they have them and you know what they are. Yes, you can also list other garden stuff, such as seeds, tools or books, that you wish to swap. And if you really have nothing to swap, yes you are still invited! Just bring something for the pot luck lunch. (See the Aquasco Swap: Food and Stuff list.

2. Read other people's lists. If you see things you want and would like to swap or trade for, e-mail the person directly to arrange it.

4. Do NOT post a list of plants that you WANT for swapping or trading on this list. That's what the Aquasco Swap: Plants you Want list is for.

5. Please do NOT discuss who will be bringing what kind of chocolate (or other food) to the swap. There is a separate Aquasco Swap: Food and Stuff list for that.

6. Do update your member page with your Haves and Wants; feel free to link your post here to any Plant Exchange page you may have.

7. UPDATE your posting here. These entries are editable, so if your Haves changes (because something you were going to swap has been reserved already, or you have some additional plants to share), please edit you existing post, rather than making a new post further down the list. It's just simpler that way.

8. When you bring your plants, MARK RESERVED PLANTS (i.e., plants for which you have a pre-arranged swap). LABEL your plants if possible; we often forget which was what by the time we get them home! Popsicle stick, plastic spoons, or other "plantable markers" are great, as they can be popped right in to the ground along with the plant.

At the swap, please do NOT take anything that is labeled for someone else, or is NOT labeled "Free" or "Please Take." Ask. That's all you have to do.

9. Questions? just include them in your post here, or feel free to eMail Vlad.

10. Have fun finding new homes for your surplus plants and discovering new plants you didn't know you needed!

Did I forget anything? Of course! So, let me know so I can fix it!

Wishing everyone a great swap! Happy gardening,
- vladislav

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

Additions to my list:

Various bakets, pots and what I think are orchid baskets. I got them from a neighbor who could no longer use them. See link for pix.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pix of Additional Items

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

Calycanthus florida (sweetshrub) suckers from a plant with cantaloupe smelling flowers

Veronica longifolia from seed; blue flowers

Agastache rupestris, "Apache sunset". Not sure if this will be hardy, but I think it's worth taking a chance

Salvia verticillata

Scented geraniums: I'm taking cuttings for the winter, but if anyone would like the mamas, I can dig them up. I have Rober's lemon rose, Roger's Delight, Snowflake, lemon, rose, chocolate mint, a variegated one that smells sort of camphory.

Coleus - same thing. Have 6 or 8 varieties.

I gallon pots.

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

I'm going to have some Tiarella 'Crowfeather',
Perhaps some Heuchera 'Splendens' but I'm not certain.
Probably some geranium 'Bevan's Variety'

I had to dig up my 2 front beds because we're changing the front of our house. In this heat we had, I've had lots of losses. That, and just plain heat in the unmoved beds has killed lots, including several Japanese maples.

Oh! The Crape Myrtle 'Tonto' I gave away last year (6' tall) has put out a lot of healthy suckers. They're running 1-2' tall, so if anyone is interested, I'll dig these up. They'll immediately play dead, but don't be deceived.

Guys, I have so much going on, I can't promise private trades. I plan to be there early, though.
More to be listed as I go.

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

Daylilies!!! About 200 named varieties. Can't promise names but can supply almost any color. (HEMEROCALLIS) Steve in Baltimore County

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

Have a gadget called a SQUEEZO. Used to remove seeds fromtomatoes and reduce them so they can be cooked down for sauce or paste. If anyone can use it I will bring it down. Steve in Baltimore County

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

I can bring seedlings of these trees.... all will get LARGE... not for your small suburban lot.
Silver maple
River birch
sweet gum.. this will have beautiful fall color but also has the dreaded "gum balls" that love to attack bare feet.
I'll dig these only if someone wants them. Otherwise they will get mowed with the bush hog after the first frost.
Cuttings of Hansa rose if anyone knows how to root it.

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

Lemon cuke
Snap bean
Purple bean hyacinth vine
Morning glory

UPON REQUEST, I will dig up some trumpet vine seedlings.

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

Have a small tow-behind your garden tractor. Looks like a 2 wheel wheelbarrow but with a towbar. Heavy as my son had the tires puncture proofed. If anyone can use it I will bring it down. Steve in Baltimore County.

RE: Acquasco Fall MAG haves list

I won't be at the fall swap but have flower, hairy vetch and alfalfa seeds that I'd like to send along to give away - I just can't seem to throw them out! Would anyone be willing, if I mailed them, to sit my seeds out by their car so people can take them?

No trades needed.

Thank you

You guys are wonderful! Many thinks for your kind offers to help me find homes for my seeds - I've made arrangements with someone to bring them.

Thanks again!
