RE: Here's what I got from the seed swap

I'm glad you got a lot, and seriously, I hope it is enough since you were so gracious to open your home again.

But looks like we all need a lessen in handwriting, including me!
I'll correct my additions:

Euonymus bungeana ex 'Pink Lady'
Euonymus hamiltonianus var. sieboldianus
Iris setosa ssp. canadensis
Melica ciliata
Ratibida pinnata

RE: Here's what I got from the seed swap

Hi, cheri, that's a great haul you made there!

You know, when I first read your list, I thought, wow, it will be very hard to search on some of those plant names/spellings. Most are close enough, that you'll probably be able to find the plant, but some will be quite puzzling, and the search may not bring up a proper match.
So pardon my compulsiveness, but in the hope that it helps for your research and plant records, here are what may be some slightly more useful interpretations of the plant names:

2. Actaea racemosa
6. Allium atropurpureum
11. Angelica gigas
12. Anise-hyssop, Agastache foeniculum
13. Anemone
18, 19, 20. Asclepias
22. Aster novi-belgii
25, 26. Baptisia?
66, 68, 69. Echinacea
67. Scabiosa 'Ace of Spades'
72. Eupatorium rugosum 'Chocolate'
136. Nasturtium
137, 138. Nigella
143, 145. Penstemon
179. Tanacetum parthenium
180. Thalictrum flavum
181. Thalictrum 'Lavender Mist'
186. Verbena bonariensis

Hope that helps! Lots of great plants there!

What a haul, Cheri! Now, where ya gonna put them all?? well.. that's my problem with my own 'haul' anyway :-) So many seeds... so little garden space! And didn't we have a great selection of seeds at the swap? I bet we had more variety then many stores that sell seeds. I'd put us up against Home Depot or Walmart any day!

For temp storage (pre-planting), I splurged today, and bought two file boxes to stash my seeds in. My old system (a cake pan and a small box) was running out of room :-) I came home with a couple of 'Tote 'n Go' containers from Staples and large index cards so I could separate the seeds alphabetically and easily find whatever I'm looking for. Even got all the new ones sorted tonight. Now... gotta pull out last years left overs and get them sorted and I'll be all organized!

RE: Here's what I got from the seed swap

I must admit- I came home with more than I had planned to.....
But less than what I came with!
I still have many hours of home-work looking up information and germination requirements...
I thought I was doing well with the two portable file containers I bought to store seeds in this year- one for swapping and one for sowing- but It is a bit of a mess still- shuffeling through all the "d's" for the right digitalis or datura or what ever- and I keep seeing a picture from a post where the gardener had purchased one of those plastic roll-away multi drawer systems. A drawer for sowing, with homemade dividers, all alpha filed- the bit larger drawer for swapping- and the big bottom drawer for seed cleaning, packaging, labeling tools, bubble mailers, postage and germinating info....... All in a single unit that can be easily tucked away when not in use- and organized and tidy when in use!
Oh to be so organized!!
I swear- every time I pull out the seeds- it is like an explosion throughout the whole area and then some!
I do wonder what others do with the seed storage/swapping systems......
I have found a good software sysem for computer filing for seeds and things garden related and what have you- It is called NoteBook from Circus Ponies- It does work well for me- and maybe you too!

RE: Here's what I got from the seed swap

Wow Cheri what fun. I to brought home more than I planned to but less than I brought. Now to organize. I can't figure out just how I am going to do that, but I am tired of sorting through trying to find what I want. Julie I checked on that software and am going to download the free trial to try it out.

I went to Costco and have my soil, the containers have their holes and now to get markers made and then plant the seeds.


RE: Here's what I got from the seed swap

whoa Cheri! Watch those Baptisias! The purple gets 2.5-3ft all directions and the white will go 4! *giggle*


RE: Here's what I got from the seed swap


"Bracteantha, Sundaze Flame" is an annual. see website -

RE: Here's what I got from the seed swap

Thanks for all the corrections, Not offended at all
I am not always the most particular and organized but I am practicing..
I have a couple of totes just the right size, made a-z cards for the seed I only have a few of then the ones I have alot of they have there one spot in that section, We'll see what happens once I start sowing...
