RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

I'd like a bleeding heart. What are you looking for?


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

OMG I MUST HAVE BLEEDING HEART -

*composes self* I mean, if you have a spare one, I'd love to have one of your bleeding hearts! Is it the vine or the perennial? (Either way, I want.) What are you looking for in return? Check out my exchanges page!


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hey mikeandbarb and mommyfox... I couldn't wait this year... got my Bleeding Heart about 2 weeks ago - she's coming up already - OMG, I can't wait!

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

clair & wacoberly,
you can post on the FW 4-12 Swap thread on the Exchanges page linked below.

& once you get to the Exchanges page, be sure to look for the other threads related to the FW Swap,

I think there are 4:

the 1st one is titled something like

Ft Worth Spring Swap

then one that gives details of how the swap is structured, something like
Swap Info for Newbies Please Do Not Post Trades Here,

Ft Worth Swap, Keeping Everybody Happy,

& Dallas Morning News Article About Ft Worth Swap.

(Even if you just want to trade one-on-one, you ought to post it on Exchanges.)

hope to see you there!

RE: Hi Wacoberly.....

Hi - I would like the smokey black haw viburnum, if you are coming to the April 12, Fort Worth swap. Let me know, what plants you are looking for. Thank you. tina_2


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

I'm both new here and new to plant swapping, so I have a few questions.
I would like to attend/swap on the 4/12 date.
Do I have to join any club to swap?
How does it work? Do I show up, set up a table and start dickering?
What is a fair trade? Is plant 'A' worth two of plant 'B'?
As there will be only me do I pull my offerings around with me in a cart as I go to other tables?
Is there a fee to set up?
What if no one wants to swap what I have, can I buy plants?
Do I need to provide info/care sheet for my offerings?
I've got a few dozen Aloe Vera plants for swap, might anyone be interested in them as they're succulents?
(Direct descendants from a plant imported from the island of Aruba in 1974).

Any advice you have to offer is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Scott


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi wacoberly2 -

I would like some blackhaw viburnum. What are you looking for in trade? I have:

Agave pups (dark green with light green stripe)
Aloe Vera
tall pink (Chi-Chi) Mexican petunia
Obedient plants
Trumpet Vine
Elderberry plants
Small (low-growing) purple mexican petunia
Leucojum Aestivum (summer snowflake)
Beautyberry
Tropicana cannas
Water plants - Pickerel Weed

I'll be at the FW swap if you'd like to exchange there.

Thanks!
Lin


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

I think it'll be easier if we all post stuff in the same place - I know I have trouble keeping track of who I'm supposed to trade for what when it gets scattered! Sylvia's link will take you right where you need to go, if you don't know where it is ...

Orclin, the link below will answer all your questions!

Here is a link that might be useful: New Person Swap Information


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi Scott,

The swap is free, as for whats a fair trade is between the person's trading. Say that I have a daylily worth 25.00 that you'd like, but your's are only worth 10.00 then I'd ask for two daylilies for one of mine. But this is mostly small trades, with spreading or seedling plants coming up.
Although their are some pond plants.

Go to the exchange page and you'll see how the swap works.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hey, guys and gals, I can barely keep up with ONE thread much less TWO .... can we move all this over to the Ft. Worth swap thread in Exchanges..????


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Carrie, the other thread is almost full, the max posts is 150 and there are now 148, so if all these plant swap maniacs keep going we're going to have spill over here anyway. I can't keep up with all of it either, I never saw such a trading frenzy!! Everybody wants one of everything that everyone else is offering. All I have to say is we all better bring a LOT of plants!!!

Scott, show up with everything you want to trade or give away and I can guarantee you won't go home sad. I always give away everything I don't trade for. I go to the swap with the attitude that I don't want to take my own plants back home, but I definitely want to bring home someone elses plants. If I come home with more than I went with, I feel like I had a really good swap, if I go home with less then I go home knowing that I made some fellow gardeners happy. It's not about money, it's about happiness. Show up and get happy.

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

element321 is your grass with dark berries lirope? Do you have the var green/yellow leaf kind? I can also bring a red bud sapling (been in the pot a year so its good and rooted, about 2 ft tall.)


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Toadlilly: I think they are dark berries lirope. I googled and they looked about the same. Here are mine. the dark greens have been taken care and protected by the shade. The variegated ones are a little brown. I removed some branches over that bed and now they get way to much sun. I will be removing or transplanting them soon.

Heres what they look like...

I will take both if you want to. Please post here and then send me an email what you want do.

Thanks


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Welcome Toadlily! You have a nice list.
The baby elephant ear that runs, I believe it's taro. I would really like one, with the green wandering jew. And I would love the orchid!! Is there anything of mine you would be interested in? Maybe a water lily? My list is in Part Deux also.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Planopondnut-you got a deal (orchid, taro?, green jew)! How about some blue carpet sedum, fall aster, azolla, and lily? Email me and let me know how much EE and jew you want (I have lots)

Cheryl, I'd love to have some of your preserves, especially the pear;
I don't think I've had pear preservessince my grandmother died.

Please look at my list & let me know what I can bring you in return.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Darlene, I would love the orange bulbine --- don't see any sign of mine returning this year. I thought they were cold hardy here.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

WELCOME toadlilly, element321 & Scott/orclin

Toadlily,
I am interested in your orchid: bllra tahoma glacier 'sugar sweet', Yesterday, today, tomorrow & the Crinum-Milk & Wine.

Thanks,
Debbie

Lin


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Lin, is there anything I have to trade you'd cosider for water lettuce & hyacinth?


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Toadlily, the watch chain plant is called crassula muscosa. Also, you are talking about the Sedum Balticum when you say Sedum B? I'm also interested in your elephant ears and your bouncing bet. Is there anything else on my list that might interest you? I will be bringing some additional houseplants that I potted up if you're interested in houseplants. I just don't know the names of them. I will put you down for Sedum Angelina and Tansy for sure. Let me know about the rest. Thanks.

Carrie751, I have you down for bee balm, lamb's ear, and orange bulbine for your flame acanthus, gloriosa daisy, mock orange, and turk's cap roots. Is there anything else you would like? My orange bulbine never died out. I dug and potted some up and put it in the greenhouse because I wasn't sure if it would make it or not. It made it alright, and I have to divide it! Thanks.

No takers for the Artemesia "Oriental Limelight"? It really is pretty. It's a great ground cover. How about ajuga? It's blooming purple blooms right now, very pretty?

Darlene

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Darlene I for you:

philo-mex breadfruit (big split leaf)
Yesterday, today, tomorrow

Does anyone have Turk's cap and Mandevilla they would want to trade?


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

I have Turk's cap roots, element, very large ones from the one I had dug up and relocated. I will bring these with me to the swap, and you are welcome to one of them.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Welcome Scott!!
Bring whatever you have. We'll have lots of stuff for you to pick from. BTW I'd like some aloe vera. I've let mine get too wet & killed 'em.

Weldon


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi Carla! (toadlily)

I've got you down for a water hyacinth and water lettuce - do you want some pickerel weed too? And maybe a water canna? (Thalia)

I would like some elephant ear and water parsley. This would be a good trade for me, as I am thinning out the water gardens - so either take them or I'll have to compost them!

Thanks!
Lin


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Thanks Lin!


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

LIN
never say compost - ewwww it hurts my ears.
Bring all you have to get rid of & I'll carry any leftovers off to the next trade & the next - hee hee I will be following Sylvia to 3 in a row this year.

So that goes for everyone OK. Trash no goodies. I'll find them a home.

Do I only have Sylvia adopting some Guppies? You know they do need a home - ask your friends & neighbors. They are beautiful & I seem to be getting a lot of males that are showing a silver leopard print with orange & black tails.

Debbie


 o
post for donna

Donna my next door neighbor doesn't have a computer & she looked at thread #1 & started a list. LOL I kept trying to get her over to read the second string & know here we are on # 3 - & she's out of town. She's never been dissapointed after our trades even without pre trading.

I have a list that she left on my desk so if anyone can accomodate her that would be great.

Blue morning glories
Salvia - pink & red (mike& barb)
brug
dwarf columbine, violets (mommyfox)
spanish bluebells (lin)
5 pm ?? bulbs, mauve crinum (sylvia)
pomegranites (alley)
kalanchoe (weldon)

She had these listed that she has
devil backbone
jewel of opar
lambs ear

Thanks
Debbie


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

My have list

stone crop sedum
some other sedum that resembles autumn joy
caladium bulbs
monkey grass
catnip, cilantro, beet, chard, basil seeds
coco peat
homemade soap
pink oxalis
ajuga
sweet alyssum

Waco Bev,

I am interested in your bleeding heart.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Cheryl, I forgot to answer you. I'll bring you a water lily, various water plants, and a water canna division, for your daylilies, a couple coneflowers, and perhaps some purple coneflower seeds?

Gardenmommaureen, do you have any more garden amaryllis? Can I trade you some red spider lilies for some?


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hey Debbie -

Tell your neighbor Donna that I'll have some Spanish bluebells with her name on them. I would like some Devil's backbone for them - love that name!

I will bring all the water plants I want to live elsewhere, bagged up or in a bucket to be bagged, so you can take whatever doesn't find a home. I think that somehow we should put some guppies in each of the bags of water plants (bwah-hah-hah!)

Lin


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Here's my trade list - let me know if I've missed anyone.

for Weldontx = garlic chives, parsley /me =??

debbiedo7 = you ?? / me = name tag

Alley = turks cap / me = rock rose

Mommyfox = crinum, turks cap, Spirea,/
me = any columbine, rock rose

Tina = ?? / me = vinca vine

Planopondnut = crinum / me = cast iron plant

Brenda = ?? / me = lunch

I worked a trade for ajuga but don't remember who/what I need to exchange.
Maureen I'd love some of the old red amaryllis - see my offerings below.

I have: wintersown seedlings: parsley, swiss chard, Roma tomato; garlic chives; rooted turks cap; mums - color??; 2 Heuchera (coral bells); also can dig some Taro.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

dirtmomma
I'll take a Heuchera (coral bells) & a mum

Lin,
I will let Donna know when she gets back about your trade.

Weldon
If no one offers to bring you an Aloe I'll bring ya one. Just remind me OK

toadlilly/Carla
the lambs ear is fuzzy like the regular LE but is stiffer, it's also rounder with a scalloped edge to it. It blooms a tall spike with tiny purple flowers & loves water so would be good around a bog. I originally got it from Walmart & the tag said Lambs ear but I've lost the tag so I don't know what variety it is.

I was going to take a picture of the LE & my guppies but LOL my grand daughters CLEANED up my office & now I'm missin lots of stuff - like my card reader. I'll try to get one posted in the next couple of days OK

Debbie


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Barb, I can bring you several metal hanging baskets with what I think is coconut mat liners for your shepherd's hooks.

& if there's anything on my list that you'd like, I'd love that Henry Duelberg salvia, I love those things.

deb, I'll bring Donna a crinum & some 4 o'clocks.

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Mommyfox,
too bad about the yellow ice plant. I did have down you were bringing me the phrag orchid (division)

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Debbie,

THAT'S what it was! I thought there was something I was missing. And now that I look at my list here, it was already written down on there. o.O How'd I miss it? I must've been beset by a toddler. Anyway, yes, phrag orchid for name tag!


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

debbiedo-yes I would like some lambs ear, especially if it likes more water the norm (I've murdered the reg lambs ear often, with too much water).

mikeandbarb: how about Columbine, or bush morning glory or daylily (other than ditch orange) for baby tears sedum?

carrie571: I googled it too and mine is fatter, rounder leaves, draping, hardy, ground cover or pot plant. Interested? Maybe for a gloriosa daisy, black & blue salvia, or red canna?

I'd take those guppies but they'd just be fish/turtle food:(

Carla


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Debbie, I don't recall what type of name tag your making us. Is it a button style, metal with plastic coating and pin on back?

With so many people coming I have decide to make a list of all my plants for trade and my want list so when you go up to my table to check on the plants for trade you can put your name beside the plant you want and write down what you'll trade for it. With more people I think I'd be able to keep up easier this way. Whatever plants don't get traded will be coming home with me due to another swap.

Sylvia I put you down for the HD salvia.

Barb


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Barb, what a great idea --- may just have to do the same thing.
Toadlilly, I will have more plants than I have listed - do you want to wait until you see the list at the swap to decide what you want for the sedum? If not, I will put your name on one of the ones you listed above.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Toadlily, I don't care which one you choose, what is your want for the sedum?


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Planopondnut I can bring you some amaryllis (do you have redbud seedlings left, or woodfern? I'd trade for either. Let me know)
dirtmomma I can bring you some amaryllis (I'd trade for turks cap)

 o
RE: Guppies

fairysoapgirl,

I have no idea how well the guppies will do outside. Sylvia wants to try them out there, mine are in an aquarium in the house. I do know that they're always hungry. lol They would probably also be a treat to any frogs, turtles & so forth, but in turn they would enjoy any mosquito larvae.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Thank you, Michelle I got you down for Black and Blue salvia.

I have some ginger that hasn't done good for me and if I can dig it up I will bring it, here are the names it could be, kahili ginger hedychium gardnerianum, pink ginger Alpinia purpurata and white ginger hedychium coronarium, these came from hawaii a few years back the white ones come back every year but the other one's have not flowered. Maybe someone else will have better luck with them.

I don't know what else I'll be bring but if there are going to be others coming that we don't know of I want to have plenty to trade should they have something I can't live without.

Guess what ~ My sister and I get to come! Here is a list of what I will be bringing:

*Hardy violets
*Roughleaf dogwood (these have come up under the existing tree and don't have any feeder roots, not sure how to grow them, but maybe you do!)
*(5)Persian Sheild seedlings
*Several Zebrina Hollyhocks

*Several Black and Blue Salvia
*(5)Queen Anne's Lace seedlings
*(4)Salvia Officinalis (Garden Sage)seedlings
*(4)Standing Cypress seedlings
*(2)Becky Shasta Daisy
*(1)Monarda (Wild Bergamot) may be able to get more

These are some of the things that I have seen mentioned that would be nice to have:

Gloriosa Daisy
Pineapple Sage
Wood Fern
Texas Gold Columbine
Huechera

Other things that I am looking for are hosta's, carolina jesamine, gerbera daisy, perennial salvia, penstemon, dill, herbs, pink monarda and of course, a name tag!

Necia,

I will put you down for ajuga. The sedum is almost like a ground cover with small yellow star shaped flowers.

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

I'm such a nut, I actually BOUGHT plants yesterday. Admittedly, they were balloon flowers, which I don't think anyone is bringing, but still. My husband looked at me funny, but he's a smart lad and said nothing.

Fairysoapgirl, I'd love for you to share your ginger with me! Huzzah! I also would be appreciative of some chocolate mint if you have some to spare! I have alyssum and a bunch of other stuff - check out my exchanges page, I got everything on there.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi Fairysoapgirl -

I believe I have enough Spanish Bluebells for you to have a pot - I'll check later today when I cross-check my list. I also think I might have a small (2-3 bulbs) Narcissus Ehrlicheer - I will also have to search and count. Unfortunately all of the Avalanche are in east Texas and I made my last pre-swap trip yesterday :(

I'd love some "Goldstrum" rudbeckia, and maybe a bit of that Houttuynia for my greywater wetland.

Thanks!
Lin

Chocolate Mint

 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

carrie751 - I can't seem to find your list, but the feathergrass is yours... and basil too!

just an fyi on the basil - just in case I didn't say... the basil is REAL small... they have their first set of leaves and maybe by next weekend they will have another set - I will try to put a few in each container, so when they grow, you'll have lots! I just didn't want anyone to be mislead thinking... nice large basil plants.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Dorothy--I would love a visor what can I trade you?
Fairysoap - I would like a stella de oro daylily if you still have one,see my list above?


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi Fairysoapgirl - I checked and you got the last pot of Spanish bluebells - hooray! I also found a pot of narcissus that I believe is Ehrlicheer - if not then it's some other similar narcissus. If you're not into surprices I ave another pot of Leucojum (summer snowflake but they bloom here with narcissus) - I call it "Lily of the Valley on steroids" because the flowers are similar.

And to all - I dug up some more Kerria Japonica (Japanese rose - single form) yesterday, if you'd like some let me know because my SUV is getting VERY full (Barb, if you want more than 2 holler out!. I may have to ask for help moving stuff out of it!!

A very tired Lin...swaps are hard work!


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Swaps are HARD work, Lin, agreed!!!! I would like another Japonica if you find something else you would like from me.

Fairysoapgirl, I emailed you.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

fairysoapgirl,

sure we can trade water iris for iris!

what iris would you like?

All the soap sounds wonderful, but peppermint sounds simply delicious!


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Necia, if I'm not too late, I'd like persion shield , blk and blue salvia and Becky shasta daisy.

Weldon

RE: Well, I'm nuts...

..."What iris would you like?"

of course, I have at least a couple of every one of the what, 60,000 iris cultivars???

I've lost it, I tell ya!

I have some huge, deep, brilliant, ruffled purple ones in bloom right now, & I can get
Crimson King (earliest iris I ever saw, bloomed Feb 23 this year, & it often re-blooms in late May, but it's an oldie, not fancy like the newer ones),
cemetary white, &
a historic yellow intermediate, name unknown.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

dannab1 - I can dig one for ya! No trade needed... she needs to be divided anyway...

Lin - YIPPEE! Bluebells! I love that narcissus Erlicheer, so it is worth taking the chance... besides, all narcissus is beautiful! Is there something else you'd like for that last pot of summer snowflake (Leucojum )???


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

dcarpenter, if you have enough, I would love to have one of each sedum angelina and balticum.


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

oh boy - we're in the "fast and furious" phase right now!!

Fairysoapgirl, I DO have an ehrlicheer for you (I had "hidden" them from myself so I wouldn't move them to Quitman!) - and for the leucojum I'd love a feather grass if you still have one.

Carrie751, you can have another Kerria japonica - if you have any flame acanthus I'd love that, if not the Kerria is up and needs a home! (I did tell you that this spreads, right?)

Catlunatic (love that name!), I will make sure you get a water hyacinth. Do you want water lettuce with that? Or a water canna - Thalia? (I feel like a fast food joint..) I would love to have some arrowhead, and if you want more than the water hyacinth I'd like dollar bonnet and/or lizards tail - anything but pickerel weed as I have that to share as well.

Thanks all!

Lin


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Sylvia - I was going to ask, buuuuuut... looks like you caught yourself! :o) I like anything pink, purple, lavender, blue... huge, deep, brilliant are great descriptive words, but whatever you think is pretty and/or you already have dug. BTW, Beverly Sills is about to bloom! Peppermint soap it is!


 o
is this ok?

Lin - the feathergrass is in a 4" pot, so these are not huge, but do have roots and very pretty... I love this stuff. I want to be sure that is ok...


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Michelle,
I will have to go check to see if the carnations & the picushon made it. I had some damp off & not sure what ones have made it. I started them a month ago & they're still pretty small.
Next year I will start things earlier to give them a chance to be mature for the trade.
I bought a light set up & will have it all together by then. LOL
All that to say Let Me Check haha

Dana,
I would be interested in the pots of every shape and size, especially if you have large round or rectangle & the carolina or confederate jasmine. I already have you & Lane's name tags.

Thanks,
Debbie


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Fairysoapgirl, thanks for asking - 4" pots are fine. I usually buy 4" pots so I can afford more variety, knowing they'll grow - with the added bonus that it helps me build character through patience. :)

is that the grass that grows along the George Bush turnpike up in Carrolton/Plano?

Ok,here goes! (Sure hope that I don't accidentally delete this before I get it sent!)

Catlunatic - Were you able to catch my post above about your Flame acanthus, Darci Sage and Duelberg Savia? It went by so fast that it might have been a blur! LOL

Debbiedo - The 2 zebrinas, 2 Persian Sheilds, and 1 garden sage sound fine. I will take the nametag with the iron garden gate and flowers. Also, do you still have any the burro's tail and string of bananas? What color is your scabiosa?

Weenerdog - I have you down for Garden Sage, Monarda, and violets. I would like some ajuga and sedum! Pretty please! =)

Weldon - I have you down for Persian Sheild, B&B Salvia, Becky Shasta Daisy in trade for Beard tongue.

Planopondnut - Persian sheild for Wood Fern. (The Persian Sheild is still a baby, I hope that is okay.)

Dannab1 - I would like one of your volcano plants and a carolina jasmine. Do I have anything that interests you?

Fairysoapgirl - I would love to trade for the basil and thyme, but, I only have the B&B Salvia, my Sister has the goat poop and she hasn't posted her trade list yet. (2 more goat babies were born yesterday! So she is busy!)

Sylvia - Do you still have some blue mistflower?

Mommyfox - Do you still have some yellow iceplant?

MikeandBarb - I will trade you my 1st born for some Texas Gold Columbine! (Although you may not want her, she is 15!!!) Also, do you have any Navajo Bright Salvia?

Lin - Do you still have Obedient Plant, Kerria Japonica (come on, you can fit a few more in your SUV!), and Beautyberry?

dcarpenter - I will trade you my 2nd born (13 y.o. girl) for as much pineapple sage that you can spare! (Just kidding! I love these girls too much to give them away!) Also, do you still have any sedum angelina or kamstchtka?

Seamommy - I would love some coneflower.

Carrie751 - Do you still have artemesia, wood fern and gloriosa daisy. ( I LOVE Gloriosa Daisy!)

Brenda - Lunch for ?????????

Well, that is all that I can think of for now! My brain hurts!!!


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

debbiedo7 - the daylily and black eyed susan are full grown plants, so I'd like to trade those for other fully rooted plants... so, for now I'll bring the chocolate mint to trade for the name tag??

Lin - I don't know if it is the same grass, but mine grows about knee-high, is REALLY soft and blows around in the wind beautifully.

Necia - No prob! Basils are just babies... and lots of em! So, I'll bring baby basil and creeping thyme for black & blue salvia. Goat babies are really cute! I had a friend back in California, and I'd go to their house and kneel down and the goat babies would jump on my back! Too funny!


 o
RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Maureen, I checked, and yes I can bring you a redbud seedling, as well as the fern, and salvia.

Necia, a tiny start will be fine, thanks!

I hope my pots of black & blue salvia will recover from the transplant in time for the swap! They look upset (droopy). :-/ I may have to trim off the tops.

Oh, my poor back! :)

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Necia, I still have a lot of artemisia and I will see if my helper comes this week to dig up more wood fern. I have a lot of it, but just unable to dig it. I think I can probably find another gloriosa daisy, also, and I have a lot of flame acanthus (though small it may be)-- it is all in four inch pots, but it grows very fast.

I will probably have extras of some of this, and other things I have not listed, so stop by my table and see if I have something you want. It just got to where my head was spinning -- we were moving so fast. (grin)

If anyone has any extra plants that you are just going to throw away, I would love to bring them back to my other swap! We are expecting quiet a few newbies that have no plants at all.

Thanks,
Necia

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi Sally - What would your mom like for a raspberry and dewberry seedling? The Japanese rose (kerria japonica) is very nice, I have a small (quart sized) catmint that I split, and of course Mexican petunias (pink tall and purple low clumping). I also have Tropicana cannas - or if she likes fruit I have elderberry transplants. I also have a bunch of tomato seedlings (mostly small-fruited like isis). I hope there's something on my list she'd like!

Hi Necia - I still have Obedient Plant and Kerria Japonica, and I have a small (quart) Beautyberry if you'd like it - I have plenty more but they're in Quitman and I'm not heading back there before Saturday. If you have any of the following left, I'd be interested in Persian Sheild seedlings, Shasta Daisy, Black and Blue Salvia, or Standing Cypress seedling (listing so many in case you're out, I don't expect them all).

Thanks!

It's how I knew I had an "oops" with Spanish bluebells and had to go split one of my own pots.

Also - logistically - does everyone bring their own boxes/bags etc. to get their trade stuff? I don't know that I have enough boxes or carriers for the dozen or so folks who are getting all of the (gulp) 65 plants I now have takers for (not to mention the aloe that I am trying to dump - I mean get rid of - I mean rehome - I mean "gift" to gardening friends!).

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi Everyone,
It was a very busy day in the garden. I kept getting sidetracked while trying to pot things up. The rye grass is taking over my wildflowers so I had to stop and pull grass for half a day. Then got sidetracked by hummingbirds. I had on a red t-shirt that they kept checking out, so had to go in a get the feeders ready. I find so many other things to do other than what I set out to do.

First off:
Debbie I would love a name tag with the cat on it. I figured I was too late since I didn't get involved until til yesterday. I will have Mexican Mint marigold,Passionvine, and a night blooming cereus for you.

Jenn: You asked for butterfly attracting plants so that's what I will bring.

Necia: I have Flame acanthus, Darci sage,and hopefully a henry duelberg salvia. If you still have a standing cypress or queen anne's lace that would be fine.

Planopondnut: I have some Horsetail reed potted up for you. The water celery for trade will be fine.

Danna:I have you down for henry duelberg salvia and passionvine.Could you really bring tadpoles?

Linn: I will bring arrowhead starts, Lizard-tail and some of the bonnet. Our trade is for water hycinth.

I will also check for pots and baby food jars. I wish I had known about that sooner. I just had a long run with a sick cat and went thru alot of chicken babyfood.
did I miss anyone?

Hope

Planopondnut, Sally does your sister still have some scabiosa daisy (blue)? Anything on my list she'd like to trade, I do have some Hardy Red amaryllis I could dig up, it is small flower not the large ones?
I am going to get all the rest of the digging and potting done today I hope. So this means I'll have extras to swap out.

There will be a list of my have's and wants. On this list I will leave room for you to put your name beside the plant of choice and the name of plant you have to trade. Thank you

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Ah, Hope, can't I interest you in anything else besides the water hyacinth? I feel our trade is too one-sided, with me getting the better deal!

Maybe a water canna (Thalia dealbata)? It's not a canna at all but a very pretty plant none the less. Or I have some unknown-color water lilies, or some oxygenator plants. Or canna Tropicana? There's got to be something more I can give you! Some catmint maybe? I have a quart pot that I separated if you'd like it...

Thanks!

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Hi Debbie,

I'd love to trade for the nametag and daylilies. I was just thinking last night that I need more yellow in my side bed.

I forgot to say in my wants, that I don't really care for red or orangey-red flowers. (I'm sure my sister is laughing at me now!) I need some mints, too, if anyone wants to trade. DH makes mojitos alot in the summer and last year we had to --BUY-- (gasp!) mint at the grocery store! I have one little peppermint plant started, but I'd love to try other kinds.

BTW, I just put the price of my items to show the trade value, I don't expect anyone to buy anything! =)

RE: Plant Swap in Fort Worth area

Julie, Lin, and Debbie-- I just found out that my Mom (Charlene) is only bringing raspberries and dewberries. I misunderstood. She has just planted some blackberries, but doesn't have any to share yet. Sorry!

If you are still interested, Lin, she is interested in the tropicana canna if you still have it. Otherwise, the Kerria. Julie, she is interested in the boxwoods, if they are miniature (12 inches tall or so). Otherwise, the love-lies-bleeding sounds marvelous to her. :)

Sorry again,
Sally

Okay - my head is spinning. Can't keep up with who has what. But if we haven't already arranged a trade for lunch - some of things posted that I'd be interest in are: volcano plants, basil, bee balm, mondara, rudbeckia, etc. etc. etc. Really, I'm pretty easy. I like perennial and re-seeders and we have sun, shade, part sun, etc, etc, etc. Also have a pond. Dannab -would love some tadpoles.

Necia, I can bring you some sedum angelina and kamtschaticum. Not sure about the pineapple mint, will have to look. I do have a ton of the Artemesia - Oriental Limelight if you would like some. I'm not sure if you have anything left for trade, would like a persian shield, but I think they have all been spoken for. If not, don't worry about it. Thanks.

Hope, do you have any clammyweed left? If so, check out my trade list on Part Deux and see if anything interests you. Thanks.

Barkingdogwoods, I would like one of your kerria japonica if you have any left. Do I have anything that interests you? I will have a few more plants at the swap that I don't have listed. I still have to dig and pot them up this week. Thanks.

Posie4u, I do have sedums angelina and balticum for you. What do you have for trade? Thanks.

Also, I was wondering if the plant swap is rain or shine? I don't mean to jinx it, but with the Texas weather, you just never know :)

fairysoapgirl - Oh, I missed it before! That sounds great!

Sally, I'll take any berry plants! I haven't tried raspberry or dewberry before, but I'm willing to give it a go! The boxwoods are big (like, 3 feet) so I'll put aside some amaranthus for her.

Hi Sally - I will put aside both a Tropicana Canna and a Kerria for your mom for a raspberry and dewberry, if that's fine with her.

Darlene, I have a Kerria for you. If you still have St. John's wort, I'd like that; if not then some tansy; if you don't have that I'll just see what you do have - I like surprises!

Dannab1, I'd love some tadpoles but I don't know what I have that you'd want :(

Carrie--sounds good, what would you like to trade it for?

Fairysoap--I just realized I had my old email address still listed. I updated it, so plz resend!! The creeping thyme and basil would be great though.
