Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Posted by linlily z5/6PA (My Page) on
Thu, Aug 2, 07 at 15:50

As of today, August 2nd. We are a little over a month from the Fall 2007 Plant Swap, slated for Saturday, September 8th. Please post and let us know if you plan on attending so we have some idea how many people we will have this year.

*Cathy will be at the Supervisors Club around 10:30 and hope that everyone can be there by 12:00.

*Each person will pick a spot for setting up their items for the swap. Please mark them, and bring a picture of your plant/bulb/seeds, if you have one. It helps everyone to know exactly what you have for trade.

*We ask each person to bring a dish of some kind salad, desert, side dish ect. for lunch.
Refrigeration is available.

*We eat lunch together and then the swap begins.

In order to have a successful plantswap, we need your participation!
Now is probably a good time to start setting up pre-arranged trades too.
Feel free to post on this thread.

You can email Cathy or Linda for directions to the Supervisors Club if you are new to the swap.

Hope to see you all there!
Cathy and Linda

RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

I plan on coming. I would like to get a hold of some "Snow on the Mountain". I know it's invasive, but I need it for a particular area on my property. Anybody have it?? I would like a big bunch of it. I listed the plants I have potted up on my trade page. I do have lots of other plants too, just not potted up. Hope everyone can make it. If you email me privately and I don't reply it's because sometimes I don't get garden web emails.

RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Hi Linda actually the kids have a competition Friday night if they win they play at the Pitt game Saturday during the day then we're off to Upper Saint Clare band festival and since we are 2 of the 4 parents who chaperone we have to be there to ride buses help and feed them so you can see it will be a long weekend. I really would love to come but she is a senior this year so I don't want to miss a thing she does.They schedule a lot of these things last minute so I have to cancel other plans.
Sorry Patty

cbrandenburg,

I'll put your name on one. I sent you a personal e-mail about your elephant ears. I have one that is all green, Do you have any other variety? I would like some Black Jack Sedum. I like just about everything on you list, It is so hard to pick.

Linda


 o
RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Linda, I didn't get your email, sometime they don't go through.

I do have EE's Illustrius, Black Magic, Purple Stem, and the Giant one, it's huge. I will take cuttings this weekend of my Sedum Black Jack for anyone who wants one.

All the plants that I bring to the swap will be given away, LOL. We give everyone tickets for the amount of plants brought to the swap, then eveyone takes turns, we do round 1 everyone gets to pick 1 plant, then it goes from there.

Howdy, everyone!

Count me in! I hope to bring my son, Matt.

Not sure what I will bring--it's just so much fun to see all of you.

Cathy, I'll be glad to take a dozen or so of your gallon pots off your hands.

Went to a great picnic today and came home with an interesting recipe.

Rita from Erie, alias hoehum
Which reminds me, I'll bring the name tags & markers.

RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Hi, all. Since there seems to be an ongoing count, I thought I'd update my status. I had planned to come to the swap but now, I can't be there because I'll be in Oklahoma City helping my daughter move.

Have fun!


 o
RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Hi Hoehum, I'm so happy your coming. I will bring some pots for you. Can't wait to see everyone. I hope you all will have room in your cars to take home plants, I'm bringing a lot, LOL. And I don't want to bring any of my own plants home. I guess I should mention, Ross is bringing his own plants this year, LOL. He can get his own tickets instead of me giving some of mine up to him to pick his own plants. We both love gardening and have different likes and dislikes.

RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Anybody heard from Gillian this year??? Where are ya girl?


 o
RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

If I bring baked beans is there any electric available to keep them hot? Also would like to do cornbread or corn muffins to go with.

My plant list is small. Most of the things growing in my garden right now are too big to pot up this time of year.

Double Sunburst Coreopsis
Tansy
Basil Thyme
Mystery Asters
Ventricosa Hostas
Adjuga
Miscanthus Sinensis Purpurascens Ornamental Grass

Lunaria and Ventricosa seeds for naturalizing

For anyone who has a real jones for the invasives besides my flat of Adjuga, I also have Valerian, Lunaria, Oregano that could be dug up if interested.
Or a larger amount of the Basil Thyme other than the 2 I have potted up so far.


 o
RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Murial, your beans will be fine. We have electric at the shelter. Cornbread or corn muffins sounds wonderful.

I just wanted to post a note about Door Prizes. Anyone who is interested in bringing a Door Prize will be included in the Door Prize drawing. When I posted the original updated info regarding the Plant Swap, I wasn't sure we were going to do Door Prizes but after talking to Cathy about it, we are going to do them again this year. I always try to paint something for my contribution to the DP's and this year, I will be bringing a hand painted (cover), leather Gardener's Journal. Let me know if you have any questions. Can't wait until Saturday to see everyone!

RE: Updated Information -Western PA Fall Plant Swap

Hi Linda,

I haven't been active on the forums for a while, but I am definitely interested in hearing about this plant swap. I can't make it this year, but is there maybe a mailing list so I can find out about next year's? Or should I just check here on the forum?

Thanks so much,
Susan M.
