SPRING 2013 SAN ANTONIO PLANT SWAP -- MARK YOUR CALENDARS
DATE: Saturday April 6, 2013

TIME: 9:00 to noonish

LOCATION: Rogiers Park, 209 Pleasant Dr., Balcones Heights, Texas

With the mild weather it should be a good year for plants. Be sure to bring a wagon or cart if you have one.

I will be there before 8:00 am to reserve the tables.

Everyone is welcome, especially new gardeners! You don't have to swap plants, bring something to share and you will be rewarded.

See you there!

Is there a website or anything? I grow several varieties of crape myrtle trees in 1 gallon pots. I would love to trade for other plants and see what others are growing.

Here is a link that might be useful: Crape Myrtle Guy


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

We should begin posting our plants available for trade on this thread soon. Most of us are waiting to see what is growing before compiling our lists.

Crape Myrtle Guy-Are you planning to attend the swap? This thread is for those attending the swap in San Antonio. If not, you will need to start your own thread.

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I guess I can get the ball rolling. I've got some blue iris that have grown in a giant clump I can bring. They'll be bloomed out by then. In addition ill be bringing some cacti mix. More to come!

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

My Aromatic Aster (Aster oblongifolius, I think) has spread out too much, so if anyone would like one from the divisions I'm doing, let me know. Will think about what else I can bring. Shirley, could I please try a Gomphrena?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Linda, got you down for a gomphrena. Would love an aster.

I also have Ruby Crystals grass, small seedlings.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Not bringing any plants just in case they might be harboring chilli thrips and getting them started in your yard, but bringing a bunch of interesting seeds, at least I think they are interesting :-) Will list them when I get them sorted.

Looking forward to seeing everybody again. I thought about having an open house again since it was so much fun last time, but it will probably be better to do it in the fall when things fill in a bit after the removal of the roses. .


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

An open house to see your garden progress will give us something nice to look forward to in the fall Ragna!

Seeds are always welcome!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I am still debating weather I can come. My life has been out of control with doing my work and my husbands work ( he fell off a ladder and broke arm), wildlife exemption work and their is very little gardening happening. Other than repotting what I have. I am in KIlling plant mode, to tell the truth. I also feel a BAD summer coming on which means I will not have a bunch of water,

Reading your offerings is already tempting me.

 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Mara, we'll miss you! I'll email you in case you want one of my plants, I can get it to you some other way.

Shirley


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Ragna, I planted the pentapete seeds you gave me last fall today, in a pot. I can't wait to see how they do. Shirley, don't know if I'll have enough to trade if I do frog lady trade and yours. I've planted so many seeds (Mexican buckeye, senna, etc) but very few have come up.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Lorelei, don't be concerned if the pentapete seeds don't sprout right away. After observing when they volunteer for me it seems they like the weather to be pretty hot before they germinate. So no worries -- they will come up.

Hope you can come. It was great meeting you at the last swap.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Lorelei, we'll enjoy visiting with you and several of our regulars don't bring plants anymore.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Mara, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's accident...hope everything turns out okay eventually. I've been through things like that, so I know how it can be. Hope you can make it, if not try for next fall. And I did hear that the drought is expected to persist or get worse, according to forecasters. Getting tired of that! Shirley, got you down for that Aromatic Aster. I'll be bringing some seeds also...I've got way too many of certain kinds of seeds and would like to share them!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

it will be a hot dry summer, I fear. I hope to god I am wrong, but I am planning my actions as if. It also helps with me having to focus on work and building.

I need to plant the seeds you gave me still, linda. I am still getting the plants from the fall swap established.My record on keeping things alive has not been too good.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hello all,

I think I will be able to make it and am looking forward to it!

I haven' t really done an inventory yet, but I do know I have silver artemesia to offer. Will get a more extensive list up soon.

Mara, I am sorry to hear about your hubby's accident, too. I hope things smooth out for you very soon.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hi Tonya, so glad to hear you can make it.

Anyone else out there? We'd love to see you at the swap so let us know even if your list isn't ready yet.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I will be there! Bringing some cactus soil and a couple of 4 inch plants. Just potted them up so in a week ill know what is gonna be ready. Also I had a echinocereus that someone wanted at the last swap but can't remember who it was. I also have some bearded iris and crinums.

Well maybe, Bob has finished taking out the grass and laying paving stones in front the the cedar swing so it may be presentable even though the newly planted items will not have had time to grow in so we'll see -- that is if anyone wants to come. Let me know if you do.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I plan to be there. Dont have much since I just moved back to Texas.
For sure I will have some:
- Varigated Ginger
- Canna Intrigue
- Rooted lime tree cuttings
- Purple Petunias*
- low growing Dianthus*
* left over cells from nursery

I will be attempting to to root some cuttings, just dont know if they will be ready in time for the swap
- Improved Mayer Lemon
- Sweet citrus
- Morro Orange
- Variegated pink lemon
- Rex Begonias

I will also bring raw Coffee Arabica seeds, They take a while to germinate but they make a nice shiny plant and the flowers are really nice.

9 years hanging around this forum, it will be nice to meet some people. Met Roselee and hubby a few weeks ago - what a wonderful couple. Good people.

 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Very pretty cannas! I look forward to meeting you zitro_joe.

Shirley


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I am so excited to see everyone at the plant swap! Tally I just want to know if you're going back with rocks or mesquite trees? Inquiring minds want to know :-)

Haves:
Cayenne pepper
Hungarian sweet banana pepper
Sweet Heat Pepperoncini
Holy mole pepper (leftovers from a 6 pack)
Society garlic
Green culinary sage (I might sneak these into everyone's box- sage is not hard to grow from seed no matter what you might read)
Mexican Feather Grass (I'm just getting a little more -ahem- diligent about keeping records. I'm about 95% sure these are Mexican Feather Grass but haven't had it confirmed. I have pics if you want to see.)
Lemongrass- can divide if anyone's interested
Aaaannnnddd - muffins! Something a little more morning friendly than chocolate cupcakes.

I would love a Gomphrena "little grapes" from rock_oak_deer, a variagated ginger from zitro_joe, and a silver artemesia from Tonya if there's anything you all want off my list.

Lisa


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hi Lisa! I'll have a gomphrena for you at the swap.

The Holy mole pepper would be great!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hello there Lisa. I too would like a holy mole pepper if you have anymore. I have some crinums and some blue bearded iris. If you don't have anymore peppers then could I have a lemongrass?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Shirley - a holy mole for you. Thanks for the gomphrena.

Phoenix- how about a holy mole and lemongrass :-) I'd love a couple crinums.

Lisa


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hello all,

variegate monkey grass
wooley passion flower
salvia farinacae
Brazilian rock rose (2)
Aztec sweet herb

LIsa, I have you down for some artemesia. Would love some of your culinary sage!

Also, I am looking for plumeria cuttings if anyone has any they can spare!

Tonya


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Zitro Joe - I have you down for society garlic and lemongrass

Tonya - I have you down for a sage

Look forward to meeting you both at the swap- Lisa


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Joe, I am also interested in some purple passion, if possible. I have fond childhood memories of that plant (except for the scent of the flowers!).

Tonya


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

will trade plants for rocks lol! Jim is already planning on digging up mesquite so a shovel is on the list.

Have lots of banana canna if anyone wants it let me know and I will dig it up. I`m going to try and get some more crinums dug up next week also. These are the milk and wine ditch lilies. I brought a bunch to the fall trade, super easy and hardy in your area. Will divide pond plants also, forgot the in the fall.

Otherwise it will just be a surprise cause I still haven`t got a list together. And we will bring a couple of door prizes. I`ve been digging and dividing.

Tally HO!

I can bring some cuttings from a Drummond Maple for you. Any tips on how to do that cutting? I have not done tree cuttings before.

Tonya

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hi phoenix7801, I am interested in some cactus mix and a lavender. Anything on my list you would like?

Tonya


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Joey-I'd like a claret cup cactus and maxmillian sunflower.

If you don't see something I've listed so far, I have things I can dig so if you're looking for something specific let me know.

Gotcha down for both of those Joey, and thanks.

Tonya

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Shirley I would love some gomphrena or some hesperaloe if they're still available. The claret cup and Max sunflower is yours. Joe ill put a lavender and datura on the side. I'd like some lime tree cuttings if you have some.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Phoenix - good to go.

I'll bring those two for you Joey.

GardenLover1 - maybe it is the Esperanza Shrub??

 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Does anyone have any coral vine, antigonon leptopus, they are wanting to thin out? They may not even be coming back out yet, but if you do have some, I would love as much as you want to get rid of. Hoping to eventually cover part of some terraced landscape with it.

Tonya

Here is a link that might be useful: Antigonon leptopus


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Tonya, I found one that I can dig, cut back the foliage in case any chilli thrips are hiding there (although I didn't see them in this part of the yard) and keep dormant in the fridge until swap time. I know you wanted several. Hope somebody else has some for you. This one is growing near the red variety, which is really a very dark pink, so maybe it will be a dark pink one too.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Awesome Ragna! Thanks!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I have tons of it, it never died back this year. I was just looking at it sprouting up everywhere and all the seeds still on the vine thinking I need to dig up that coral vine. I`ll put a bunch in a pot for you.
Anyone else want coral vine?
Tally Ho!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Thanks Tally Ho!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Tally, I'd love one too!

Do you have any of that columnar cactus you brought last time?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

By the way Shirley this is what the claret flowers look like. This one is at work.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Joe, I'm very interested in your roasted coffee beans. I have a grinder.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Those are very pretty Joey. Is that one in the cactus house?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Roselee - Done!
Any particular region you like?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Its in the older cactus area near the lake. Its a cold hardy cacti so I'm sure it'll love coming out of its pot and into the ground.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

That's great, a cactus in the ground is easy around here.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I'm not really a plant person - more a wannabe - because I don't have a green thumb. I'm hoping to be at the swap and since I only have a few (living) plants in the yard, can I bring cookies to swap? Or banana muffins? I have great recipes for both. :) My backyard has the potential to be beautiful and I decided this year is the year it will be.

I stopped by Home Depot and Shades of Green this afternoon to look at what's available. I want some flowers in containers for the patio, mostly full sun. I also want some greenery around the fence/pool and some flowers and it's partial sun. And the pencil cactus I saw on another thread? I think that's the same plant I saw in Ethiopia and would love to have some of that!

I'm happy I found this thread and hope I can meet y'all at the swap.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Sundownr-

Baked goods are always welcome :-) That's what I brought last year. Everyone was super nice. Please come if you can.

Lisa


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Sundownr, we're looking forward to meeting you (and your muffins :-). I'll have some seeds of various plants that might work for you in pots. See you there.

Zitro Joe, I'm not familiar with reginal coffees. I've only had blended coffee off HEB shelves and the like and would just like to see what a pure region is like. Just a small amount will do. Thank you!

Joey, in the next year or two when you have more claret cactus keep me in mind. I was thinking claret might be that beautiful hardy cactus you gave me years ago with the large fuschia flowers. It has done so well.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Well I have some pups that are starting to root. So as long as you keep it potted for a few months before planting outside, ill bring you one.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hi sundownr, I look forward to meeting you at the swap too. I have a pencil cactus and will try to make some cuttings for you and check for any flowering plants that might work.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I have a couple of chunks of that cactus. I`ll bring them with me. And extra coral vine.

I LOVE cookies! I`ll bring you a box of plants Sundownr. I have a huge pencil tree I want to trim back so will bring you that, you can never have too much pencil cactus lol.

Tally Ho!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Joey, a little pup will be fine. Thank you!

Tally, since pencil cactus is a euphorbia how do you recommend handling it?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Chilly week compared to last week. I am bringing some stuff inside just in case.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

stick it in the dirt and it will root. Don`t get the sap in your eye.
Tally Ho!


 o
RE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I've had this event on my calendar and in my plans for months, but forgot to come to the thread. :-/

I have some plants in azalea pots and some gallon contains of plants and of cuttings to swap.

AP - 2 year old Amaryllis (OP, probably red) - 2-4
AP - Christmas cactus - 1 @ of white, pink, fuchsia, salmon, orange & red
GC - Hibiscus 'Snow Queen' - 3

GP - Red Yuccas - 5 (4 fingerlings per container)
GP - Vitiver - lots
GP - Lespedeza bicolor 'Little Buddy' - several

I have 16 - 8"+ cuttings of violet/maroon blooming Desert Willow rooting. When I checked them several weeks ago they still had no roots, but had lots of leaves. If anyone is interested in 1 or some I'd be happy to check them again and pot them up if they've rooted.

Ragnaa, I'll be bringing your 2 'water gardens'.

Here is a link that might be useful: FB SAPS

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Donna (Dstartz) so glad to see you will be there. I'd love some vetiver and Philippine violets.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Dstartz - I would love to trade for a Snow Queen.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Mara, I am so sorry to hear that you won't be at the swap. =( I'm also sorry to hear about your husband. I hope that he is firmly on the mend!

I'm afraid that I agree with you about the hot, dry summer. It looks like La Nina may give up before her brother takes over this fall.

Donna, I'm so glad to hear you're coming. Thanks for remembering the 'water gardens'.

I'm interested in the Lespedeza. Could I interest you in some baby agave bracteosa 'Calamar' and/or A. green goblet?

Will also have some several kinds of seeds, (which I must get around to listing).


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Ragna, I would love to trade for both the agave bracteosa 'Calamar' and A. green goblet.

I was so looking forward to spending time in your garden again. =(
But I do have another 'medieval' event that day (this time in San Antonio) that I need attend, so I will placate myself with that.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Okay Donna :-) Even though I don't think there is any danger from chilli thrips on these plants I'll be drenching the agaves and soil of everything I bring with a systemic insecticide.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Donna - I have you down for those, the dicliptera is proving a bit tricky as usual so can't guarantee.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Dstartz (Donna)- I have you down for the Mexican feather grass. Can I have a Lespedeza please? I look forward to meeting you at the swap.

Tally- you can go to Donna's for the rocks and to my place for the mesquite. Practically one stop shopping :-)

Lisa


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Yeah sure you can get 2 lavender plants Donna. Any chance I can get some vetiver? Ill put your plants aside.


 o
RE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013

Thank you, Ragna, Lisa and phoenix7801.

I am posting the plants I have rooted already, mexcan flame vine, meyers improved lemons, and morning glory bush, still trying to root brugmansia and ichroma plants. Of course I have datura in purple, white and yellow. If I cannot go, I will have someone take the plants for me. Barbra

Now ya`ll know I am totally lost once I drive over the causeway!

I have always thought of barleria repens as more of an orange, who can I pawn...er, give some of this to? It self-sows everywhere, climbs fences and plants...

Tally HO!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Tally, I'll let you pawn...er, give some of it to me, if you'd like.

Tally, I love it as a ground cover, I also have other ground cover I love, if I can make it I will bring some. Shirley you will have a large purple datura, I have several in pots that are ready. Still do not know if I can come to the swap. I will make sure the plants will be there., if I cannot attend. Barbra

Here is a picture of the evergreen plant with yellow flowers I mentioned above. Can anyone help me with the name of this plant? I can bring 2 small plants with roots.

honeybunny2 - Barbara: I am interested in the meyers improved lemon rooted cuttings. Are you interested in any thing from my list posted above?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I also have another plant, don't know its name. Can bring parts of it if any one is interested.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Gardenlover the first plant is a primrose jasmine and the other one appears to be a dietes or a type of grass

Barleria repens for you D.
Tally Ho!

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hi y'all! I plan to come this spring, though as usual I don't have much to offer. Here's what I do have:

- lots of self-rooted pink fall-blooming trumpet vine (smells great, not as aggressive as regular trumpet vine)
- reve d'or rose from Roselee which I still haven't found a spot for; if someone has a great spot for it, I'd be willing to part with it
- lots of plastic nursery pots of all sizes, 4", quart, gallon, 5-gallon
- I'm a much better cook than I am a gardener, so I'd be happy to trade food! Muffins, cupcakes, cookies, lunch - tell me what you like and I'll make it.

I'm interested in the following, if you can find anything worthy of a trade:
- rock_oak_deer (shirley): artemesia, ruby crystals grass
- phoenix (joey): agastache
- southofsa: society garlic, sage, feather grass
- nbtonya: artemesia, rock rose

I'm always interested in any salvias, frost-hardy succulents, turk's cap (especially pink) and cast iron plant you want to get rid of.

See y'all soon!

Hi Meredith, have you down for the artemesia and ruby grass.

I'd like the rose, already have one and wished I had another to go with it.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

I am going to be able to go to the swap. Gardenlover I will bring you a meyers lemon tree, it is blooming, you will love the smell. I really do not need any plants, and Tonya I will bring you a plumeria cutting. Tally I am bringing you a Xena rooted brugmansia plant, its is a dark dark pink, you will love it. I sent you an email with Marks information on what brugs he has for sale. Kathy, are you coming? If you are, I will bring you a cutting from New Orleans Lady.. Barbra


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

That's good to hear you can make it to the swap Barbra. Kathy is not going to be there and Patty can't make it either.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Tomorrow my husband and I will be taking a tour of the Texas Olive Ranch in Asherton and buying some rooted olive tree cuttings for around $5 apiece.

Anyone else interested in some rooted cuttings I'd be happy to pick them for you and I can either meet you at the medical center in SA Monday or I can bring them to you at the swap on the 6th.

It seems to me that the person I spoke with said they had 3 varieties for sale, but all I can remember for sure is the Arbequina. If the variety matters to you, let me know what you' like ~in the order that you would like them~ and I will use that list tomorrow. (see this page for the varieties of large trees they have listed)

 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Gardenlover, I can bring you cuttings from my" Flores Street House Eater", if you have room.It has beautiful blooms, but will need alot of room. Look it up on the internet and let me know if you want some. It is very easy to root. There is an interesting story behind how I got my cuttings. Barbra


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Shirley: so glad beautiful reve d'or will finally have a worthy home! I would've created one for her eventually, but I know she'll be well-cared-for in your garden :)

Lisa: any allergies I should be aware of? Chocolate, nuts, fruits?

Tonya: what can I bring you?

Gardenlover: I have Mme Antoine Carriere (climbing bourbon) and Champney's Pink Cluster (noisette) that are mostly white, slightly tinged pink - want some cuttings?


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Meredith- no allergies. Seriously, anything you like to bake we'll like to eat :-)

My "Heritage" and Lizette de Lizzy" rose cuttings are putting on new leaves so I think they have rooted. Any takers?

I also found a Brazos Penstemon, a variegated Philippine Violet and some oregano, if anyone is interested...

Tonya

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Barbra,
My Flores St. House Eater cutting that you gave me before didn't make it. Can I try again? BTW, when you google it, a lovely picture of you at a plant swap comes up on google images!

Just got back from the coast, I brought back the lemon tree, plumeria cutting, xena brugmansia, and purple datura. I will bring alot of cuttings from the Flores Street Eater to the swap. ..It very easy to root, just stick the cuttings in potting soil, and keep on your back porch, out of full sun. Barbra

Tally, do you have a morning glory bush? I got mine from Jim, it loves it in the hot sun, and is drought tolerant. I love the non stop blooms.. It goes get quite large, so it will need to have space to bloom. I brought home some rooted cuttings, if you are interested. Albert taught me how to root these, and I have been practicing. Barbra

Hoping to see everyone this Sat. I have a few plants to bring. A couple of tomatoe plants. Black cherry from seed that grow in extremely HOT climate. Seeds came from Nevada. I also have a hibiscus (see pic). I have several of these. Plus, old man's pipe and iris bulbs (color unknown). Plus, a few succulents, too. I'm looking for sedums, and other succulents. Plus, veggie type seeds or seedlings. You know me...I pretty much am happy with anything. :)


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

Hi all, mike and I are looking forward to the swap but we haven't anything prepared this time.
However, I would like to have one of Lisa's cayenne pepper and Joey's Spanish Lavender if you still have them.

Mara, sorry to hear about your husband, hope he is in the mend now.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013-Plan your trades here

LeapingFrogLady...can I please please please get one of those hibiscus plants? I have toying with the idea of tomatoes, I would love to get one of those toos.

As for vegetables from me; I have some Purple Tomatillio seedlings that came up last week. still small but should be transplant size soon. Nasturtiums can be used an herb (real spicy). I tend to throw them in my salads to liven it up. I have plenty of those. Columbine seeds just germinated this week as well. I have a list of more stuff locate up top.

Thanks
zJoe
