RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Hi everyone,

Here is the updated food list so far.. please let me know what you would
like to bring...

David might be able to be at this swap, so if anyone would like to help me
with the food... as in heating it up, please let me know. I am in a little
bit of a bind on this.

Also, the person that has hosted the website for years unexpectantly took
his server down and didn't let me know. I now have to find someone to host
the website. He did it for free... If you know of anyone that is
reasonably priced and dependable that might be able to host the plantmeet
site, please let me know. Thanks for everything you do!

Jennifer

Tally
Glad your going to be at the swap. Last time I saw you was in Nov. It will be great seeing you again. Do you have any kind of Clerodendrums?

How come no one is posting trades?
Janet


 o
RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Janet, I'll see what clerodendrums are out there. Some may be cuttings.
I'll go to Sams this weekend and pick up stuff for the picnic.

I've got to get stuff potted up NOW! There are a few things rooted and ready to go but not much.
See ya'll soon.
Tally HO!

RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Allen and I are still trying to figure out how we can come. But I'm sure we will. Tally, Divorced and A new man. We must talk. I have no clue as to what plants I'm bringing. This swap came on me quick. Where's David? Is he coming. I'm sure I can get Allen to go if I bribe him with a famous cookie.

RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

I don't plan to do much trading this spring since I have been having a lot of problems with my arthritis. I do, however, want to dig up a NOID crinum, an established moonflower tree, a clump of papyrus, and a mature Arethusa rose bush. Are any of you interested in any of these? I'm not looking for anything in partcular, although I can use some ground orchids (bletilla), named daylilies and named OGRs, but I'm primarily interested in finding good homes for the aforementioned plants and don't need to have a trade in return.

By the way, Tami, did your caldwll pink rose do well for you?

RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Hi Molly,
If you don't have any trades for the Arethusa rose bush and moonflower tree. I'll give them a good home. I'm not sure what all I'm bringing but you can take 1st pick.
Let me know Thank you

RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Tally, I'll take the crinum to you....could you tell me a little bit of the giant yellow salvia? It sounds like something I would like. Also, if you can spare a couple of cuttings of the brazilian cloak and the red leaf hibiscus.
thanks,

Molly


 o
RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Thank you Tally. Peanut butter tree sounds interesting.
Janet


 o
RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Molly-you got it. I think that red leaf hibiscus is sprouting around the yard. If not I'll bring you seeds, it sprouts like a weed & that's the easiest way to propagate the thing.
The giant yellow salvia is also called forsythia salvia, I'll find the real name for you. It's HUGE. The ones in the front yard are easily over 6' tall, makes a big clump also. It died back at my friends house in Yorktown but it is coming back nicely. It blooms for me almost year round. Hummingbirds, bees & butterflies all like it.
Tally HO!


 o
RE: wanted: mercer swap rsvp and food list

Hey Tally,

I am gonna be living less than an hour away... you know what that means! LOL

I lost my yellow salvia in the move... but they are awesome... Molly, you definitely NEED a start of it...lol

David will be there with his cookies....

Hey Tally,

I can't find your number and my emails bounce back... we do need to talk:)
