Hi Annie,

I'll be there. I'm bringing perennials, herbs, and something different this year -- seeds I have collected from my own garden and others. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Thanks Annie. The friend I'm going with lives in Goffstown and knows where you are. I went seed happy this year and have tomato seedlings that need a good home. I couldn't bear the thought of just throwing them away. I also have habanero and some white hollyhocks I started from seed.
I look forward to meeting you as well.

Hi Annie. I hope to be there too. Still wandering about the gardens seeing what is coming in and what isn't. White hollyhocks sound delightful! I'll probably have chelone, perennial geranium at the very least.

I didn't get many blooms from the Brugs I got from you last year, but I brought it inside, cut it back and it looks great. I may bring it just to show off --- and would love another to keep it company this summer! I have plenty of Solomon's Seal coming in and some May apples, which are quite fascinating to look at.

RE: Have NH Plant Swap

I am really looking forward to my first plant swap! Here is my list of what I plan on bringing:

stachys hummelo
rose campion
oenothera fruticosa
meadow anemone
rudbeckia laciniata (i think...it's a garden thug with beautiful leaves and very tall, 6' flower stalks)
grape leaf anemone
european ginger
dwarf flowering almond
heirloom iris (no idea what variety. seems to be in the miniature tall bearded family. they bloom blue and are at least 50-60 years or older. looks similar to 'virginia lyle')

i'll also bring a lemon cake
see you all there!

Hi all,

I plan on bringing Crypotaenia japonica purpurea, Caryopteris divaricata (nepalensis), Echinacea purpurea, and... if I haven't killed them.. Daphne mezureum seedlings. If anyone would like some Viola sororia 'Freckles' than I will bring those along as well.

Annie,
Good Morning. I was just checking emails and found your two in my spam folder! I just did a mapquest on your addy and your an hour and 15 minutes away from me. I was so looking forward to coming but Beth isn't able to make it and that's a long haul to take alone.I don't know anyone else to carpool with so I'm going to skip out on this one. I hope you all have a good time, maybe next year for Beth and I.
Lisa

PS: I have 1 little monkshood plant growing from the seeds that you sent me. Thank you!!!
