Hi Marcia,
10am is fine with me...

I have already potted:
sedum-autumn joy
red shamrock
lime green sedum (angelina?)
heurchera -palace purple
rudbeckia-triloba "brown eyed susan" have tons of volunteers I can take up if anyone wants them...
red veined dock

I have a shrub -I think it's called amsonia "Blue Star" I wintersowed it a couple or 3 yrs ago, not realizing it was a shrub-and now it needs to find a new home-It blooms in the spring-it's pretty

Marcia-did the columbine I brought you live?
I have more I can take up

I like having prearranged 'deals'too in addition to bringing my many extra iris, peony, and day lilly... I don't mind taking up anything I have, but if no one wants/needs them I won't dig..
some are:
camomile
mint-spearmint and lemon
bee balm-violet queen
columbine
Joe Pye weed
daisy-Shasta?
obediant plant-invasive-purple
gooseneck loosestrife-invasive-white

looking forward to seeing everyone again...
Linda (by the airport)

RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

I'm sad. I won't be able to make it. If you have any plants left over, let me know, and I will take some.


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

June 4th works great for me! Yay I'll start potting things :D And 10 am is fine with me.


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Great - I will be there! and 10am works fine for me.

I'll post a more specific list of what I'm bringing soon, but feel free to peek at my plants have list here on GW. It's fairly accurate to what I have.

--Tina

Yes, Alan is coming too! :) With food!


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Here are some things I know I'll bring, I'll try to update my GW list

Bachelor's Buttons
Yellow Dahlia -- the flowers are only about 3 inches across
Columbine
Yellow Coreopsis
Yellow Iris
Some weird spreading plant that I have around my garden pond
Sweet William
1 prickly pear pad (it's been rooted for about a year)
Blue aster


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Count me in and 10 is fine.

Just a thought...since most of us are 'seasoned' gardeners (so far anyway), and maybe not looking for or needing much (like me, Marcia, and flowerchildky/Linda) folks might want to check to see for sure there will be good homes for things that are brought...just a thought....but of course Dreamspirit will give some plants good homes.

Maybe we should start a post on the 'Exchange side of the forum with subject line of something like June 4,2011 Louisville swap prearranged swaps/shares". Think?

I hope to have various irises to bring...both named and NO ID ones, and not sure what all...I will be listing stuff later though to see if there is any interest before digging and potting stuff.

Sue


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Linda, I would love some camomile, mint-spearmint and lemon
bee balm-violet queen, columbine and Joe Pye weed if you have any left over.
I can pick up from Marcia or from you.
e-mail me after to let me know: scottiegirl74@yahoo.com

Thanks,
Marla Jo


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Sue - I think that sounds great to put a prearrange thread up.

Also, let's do what we can to bring some newbies in. I may just go through the KY members list and send out a recruiting email. (There are about 40 in KY....though I haven't checked the members for OH or IN. If someone might want to do those....I know it's a little random but might work!)


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Only one more week. I hope we can drum up some more interest.

Linda....I can't remember what color it was....I haven't noticed anything new....except a million baby maple trees...UGH> Hope to get them pulled by the swap.

Marla Jo...anything you want I will save for you.
This weather has been so crazy it is hard to get things done outside....but we will have fun anyway.

If you remember my daughter, Molly, from past swaps. She is pregnant and due in about 7 weeks. Little boy...or should I say big boy. If you look at her from the back, you would not know she was pregnant, but when she turns around....WOW !!!! Maybe I can talk her into coming over and hanging out with us.


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Marcia, congrats on the baby boy! they are SO much fun! Hope she can come by and visit with us...

the columbine is red

Marla Jo- I will take up the plants you want

Tina ....hope you can get some more folks 'on board'-would love to see a big crowd

hope to take up lots of plants this weekend- yes, the rain has sure gotten in the way for gardening..

see you soon,
Linda


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Linda...I don't think it did...so if you have a plant or two I will find a spot.


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

I'm in for sure. I have some daisies, coneflowers, rudbeckia, and monarda dug and in pots, as well as some yellow and deep purple/blue iris. If nobody wants them, I'll replant somewhere else in my yard, or donate to a friend's church's garden. I also have a lot of peat pots if anyone wants them.

Now....I have some holly bushes in front of my house that I'm thinking of getting rid of. Does anyone want some? I have 2 that are about 2ft high and 2 ft wide, and 3 more that are a little larger. Please let me know if you want holly and I'll dig whatever you want.

I am looking for some shade plants, especially those that don't grow very wide. I finally got rid of the creeping crud vines between my house and driveway (under the carport) and want to put some shade plants in there.

A few of my other "wants:"
Yarrow
Russian Sage
Catmint
Phlox (tall and/or creeping)

Also, Linda, I will give your amsonia a home if nobody else wants it. There is one growing at a mailbox near where I live and I've always admired it :)

Looking forward to seeing you guys! I'm trying to find a friend or two to come with me, but so far no definite takers.

RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

this is going to be fun!

I have everyone's want list--
having a little trouble with wilting on some of the ones I have already taken up, but I am watering and hope they will be ok- I tried to get a 'chunk' of soil with each-

my son Doug will dig some more for me today-

Tina, I would like some choc mint-

will check back here later today..
see you tomorrow
Linda


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Linda, did you see my desire posted above for some red veined dock and some red shamrock? Just curious.

I haven't dug anything yet, but plan to dig some things that might be of interest
Double Red Peony starts.
TB Iris I believe to be Alice Goodman. Shall I put anyone's name on a fan or more of it?
Alice Goodman TB

Also daylily I think it Magic Quest...anyone?
Magic Quest

No ID Pretty pink...anyone?
NO ID #1 Pretty Pink

Might get to an unknown red...has needed dug for years! Anyone? If so, do you want like a huge clump of it that you can separate out?
Unk Red from KA-Daylily

Named daffodils in smaller quantities?

NO ID daffs in larger quantities...have numerous ones. Anyone?

Nance, I'm digging what I 'think/hope is tall pink garden phlox...but it might be purple...just not sure. You can take a chance on it if you want and shovel prune if you later find out it is purple and not wanted...or else it can go to another home.

Sue....so behind as usual

I also have a variegated leaf hardy violet...anyone need one/some? post here... It reseeds and the offspring are also variegated. I can probably find the name later (like next week).


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Hi Sue! Glad you could make it - I was wondering where you were :)

I would love some of your:
Maybe Alice Goodman Iris
Magic Quest DL
Varigated Violet (coolio)
and a start of the double red peony.

IF you can get to them. I know we're in the home stretch, so no worries if not.

**********

Jen -- I have you for white yarrow and red monarda...and will dig catnip? if you'd like it.

Ok, off to axe-divide the Cup Plant now....


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Tina, I'd love any cup plant you have as it would go in a wooly area that I'm hoping to some day have in all native plants and have heard cup plant will reseed nicely, though mine in a cultivated area hasn't done that. I've heard it is hard to dig/move because of it having a very long taproot.

I'm hoping to bring a strawberry desert.

Who is making the brownies?

Sue

RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Kilngod
Dwarf Munstead Lavendar..
Rough comfrey

BurgPlum daylily

Sue
Alice Goodman.
unknown red...
Magic Quest
All such nice plants!!!
Nancy from Valley Station


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Cup plant divided. Sue -- I planted mine in a very gravelly hard area that prevented deep rooting. Instead it built itself a woody knot and all the side roots. It's done great in that spot actually in the junkiest driest soil I have anywhere. (Has not spread sideways muchand I harvest the seeds so no volunteers thus far.)

Sue - have cup plant for you.

Others -- also have a few of the low creeping sedums potted up:
blue spruce,
gold moss,
and one that looks kinda like the "two row" stonecrop.

--Tina


 o
RE:swap

Nance -- got those for you:

Dwarf Munstead Lavendar
Rough comfrey
Ageratum

 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

If any NOID #19 (peachy pink rebloomer) or NOID #6 (yellow white frilly), I'd snag 'em in a heartbeat.

if they get dug. no worries if not.

(I have some of that Honey Glazed from you I think. It's dreamy.)


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

And I missed....

I'm emailing Kate, Marla Jo, and Jen to holler for things tht might be of interest. I can probably dig a few more things in the AM too.


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Sue- if you see this in time, I would love a Honey Glazed iris...if not, no prob

I did not see your request for the dock and shamrock-will save the dock for you- will devide the shamrock for the 3 of you that requested

I am bringing some birdhouse gourds-dried and ready for crafting

also have some daylily and coneflowers 'up for grab'
I hope I can get it all in my car! LOL

AND I am bringing the brownies!! :))

Linda


 o
RE: June 4th, Louisville Plant Swap, Roll call

Whoo-Hoo...Marcia said she was making brownies...only 1 needs to, but if you both have them made, (and bring them) I'm sure they will get gone.

I'll try to get the honey glazed for you...am surprised at you requesting it since you too are paring things down like I am.

I may be a bit late, so I hope I don't miss nance/Nancy, with her goodies as she has been in a rush in years past. Hope I still have my directions and phone number for Marcia.

Sue
