I can probably make that!

RE: plant swap near Pittsburgh sunday Sept. 16th

Yay! I'll be there! Let us know any specifics on what we should bring.

WHAT I PLAN TO BRING: I have a really cool fig tree that I got at another plant swap. Once I got it home and realized that I'd have to do special care for it to overwinter it, I began to doubt my enthusiasm. I'm more of a "poke-it-in-the-ground and hope-for-the-best" kind of gardener. So, I plan on bringing it. It's grown quite well in the big pot I have it in and is looking really healthy and green.

I also have a lot of purple cone flowers and rudbeckia that I just don't know if I should bring or not. Anyone else who has them already has a LOT of them, I'm sure. If anyone is interested in them, please let me know...I can bring a very generous trade of either of them.

I have some jack-in-the-pulpit plants that don't look all that great right now just because it's that time of year for them...they'll transplant well and will look beautiful next year. I have a few trades of them.

Other things I might be able to bring:
- columbine (light pink doubles)
- yellow or burgundy iris
- tulip tree seedlings
- ginko tree seedlings
- red sedum
- hmmmm...I'll have to go out to look in my garden to see what else.

I am looking for a money tree plant, a quaking aspen tree/seedling, flowering bushes, another chinese lantern (patty?).

I'll bring some fruit salad, too, for the covered dish lunch.

Sounds like fun! See ya then!

Sorry we won't see you at our Western PA Fall Plant Swap on Sept. 8th, Patty. Could you come and leave early, if the band festival is early in the day? Thank goodness my daughters' festivals were evening events!

Anyway, since our swap is close to Pittsburgh too, why don't all of you posting here consider coming to our swap on the 8th, then Patty's the next weekend, on the 16th? We'd love to have all of you!
