hi Diane
I'm interested in your spring aster and your evening primrose. I have astilbe and loads of foxglove.

RE: have: date of nh fall plant swap

.I'm starting to make a list of what I can offer for the swap. Right now I know I have
a couple of hibiscus,
some hosta,
jerusalem artichokes,
a grapeleaf anemone,
a baby elephant ear,
old fashioned double orange day lilies,
some lady bells and malva and probably lots more once I get my garden weeded.
I'm looking for some plants like ginger to fill up my shade garden and lots of poppy seed.
See anything you like?

RE: have: date of nh fall plant swap

My list of have's

heuchera - Montrose Ruby (prefers shade)
Daylily - Wine Delight
Miscanthus Morning Light
Hosta Crowned Imperial and Hyacinthia
Spirea Anthony Waterer
Maybe climbing rose Golden Showers - (it doesn't seem to do well for me, but I know it has potential in the right spot)
probably others after I go looking more

have to think about my want list still...

RE: have: date of nh fall plant swap

Hi Everyone,
Count me and a few sisters in this swap. no time to list plants I will try to get it together later. Dianne, I will try to bring a pink forget me not for you(have to remember which ones are pink). Also, I have collected seeds too this year. Should be digging in the dirt this weekend (I hope.
What goodies are you looking for Annie?

RE: have: date of nh fall plant swap

Disclaimer: This is my first year, so please don't shoot the messenger if I bring something that isn't tradeable. I'll try my best since I don't know what I'm doing yet.

I will be bringing several small clumps of:

Sedum: one light green thing, and one burgundy. Both have light pink flowers.

Daylilies: one or two lavender illusion, couple of stellas, and maybe a suzy wong or two- most of my DL selections aren't enough in qty yet to divide.

Seeds: have a gagillion malva hollyhocks in pink and dark purple, and will harvest some cleome soon.

Not sure what I can dig up from the 'Mixed Cottage Garden' boxed mix from Walmart. I don't know which are perennials, and which are annuals, (and which are selections that just didn't bloom for me) so don't know what to share. Please PLEASE email me if any of these are of interest and I'll pull them up for the swap:
batchelor buttons
prairie coreopsis,
some cute little yellow coreopsis-looking thing,

I hope I'll provide something of value for the swap!

RE: have: date of nh fall plant swap

Following up with a very vague list of varieties that I'd like to sample. I'm open to MANY suggestions since I'm a newbie gardener, and trying out lots of new things.

1. Cottage Garden anything. The 'boxed mix' didn't work that well for me this year, so I'm guessing I need to put in 'specifics' rather than that method.

2. Not sure of the name: a dwarf-looking variety of Rudbeckia. It might be a coreopsis, but I'm not sure. 90% sure it's Rudbeckia, but it's not more than 24" tall.

3. Echinacea- purple coneflower: Rubinstern, Magnus, or Double-Decker Purpurea (the one with the 'hat')

4. Gallardia- Blanket Flower

5. Marigold seeds. Partial to the larger-bloom orange/red varieties (Bolero), but love them all cuz they do well for me.

6. Coleus seeds (these are annuals, right?)

7. Dianthus- any color

8. Delphinium- LOVE these! Especially partial to the 'Butterfly Blue,' but again, I'm open to suggestion.

9. Yellow. Always open to yellow.

Thanks, everyone

RE: have: date of nh fall plant swap

Hi Everyone!

Yes, this is extremly last minute but I will be showing up tomorrow also. Please take a look at my list, it's not that great,as I am sure everyone knows, it looks yucky in the fall and I would be embarrassed by some of the plants. If anyone specifically wants something shoot me let me know on this thread and I will bring it.

Hi Annie. Thank you for Saturday's plant swap. It was great fun and I am looking forward to next spring already. My chelone (turtlehead) was quite a hit, so I'll bring some in the spring (of course it won't be as imposing then) and I hope to interest you in swapping something with me for a grape leaf anemone. Gosh I loved that! It was a great day and I enjoyed meeting all the other swappers. The picture I took of you with the Brug is lovely and I'll make a copy for you and Rachel.
