It happened again :-) The first thread hit the max number so I'll start Part 2.

Mamachilie - I'm so glad you and Mike are coming again! I planted the cantaloupe seed you gave me last fall and it's coming up really well. I'll bring you a cayenne pepper plant.

Pheonix (Joey) - If you didn't have plans for one of the double purple datura plants you were offering could I have it? I don't know if there's anything else or something more you might like off my list. Just let me know.

dug 3 types of crinums from the yard today including crinuma americanum-low growing, white open spider type pink tinged flowers, Ellen bousant (not sure on spelling)-deep pink trumpet flowers, and one unknown

Afican hosta-great for pots, ground cover, partial shade/sun-ya`ll will probably have to bring this one in.

bromeliad-this is a big one best suited for a spot that gets a lot of sun but protected in mid-day, one of the hardier bromeliads

Hymnocallis sp. -white spider lily-toes dormant, mulch it over winter. big white spider blooms.

have 2 rooted pieces of the columnar cactus

Pride of Barbados seedlings

Couple of house plants

Sea Oats

Tally HO!

Tally is the bromeliad the one that you water from the center of the plant, or the tall bromeliad?

re: have: Seeds ...san antonio spring swap 2013 trades - part 2

It almost kills my soul that I dare not bring plants to trade because of the possibility they might harbor chilli thrips, but I do have the following seeds to give away. No need to reserve them. I'm bringing 4 to 6 packs of each kind. Just come and ask for them.

On the other hand, I do have several 2 year old plants of the very hardy, very sweet (but seedy), tangerine tree, 'Changsha' (hardy to 5 degrees) which I grew from seed. I've never noticed chilli thrips on the seedlings. I could drench them with a systemic insecticide known to control chilli thrips if anyone wants to take the chance. They fruit at 7 yrs. old. Otherwise I'll have to toss them.

I looked up photos of the seeds I have. Click thumbnail for larger view:

RE: HAVE: P. S. about door prizes at San Antonio Spring Swap 201

If you have anything to donate to the door prize drawing they will be welcomed. I'm bringing a few things ....


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

A few reminders for Saturday....

I'll be there at 8:00 am when the park opens to reserve the tables. Most swappers arrive after 9:00 am and we are usually finished around noon.

It's a bit of a walk to the swap site from the parking area so bring a cart if you have one.

We will have a door prize drawing so items for the table are appreciated.

Have fun and we'll see you there!

Gardenlover, I'll separate the Changsha's and bring for you.

Tally, I'd love one of the columnar cactus. As you know I'll have a couple of things for you. I'll leave them in the car and have your hubby (Jim, right?) carry them to your vehicle.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

Dstartz - I am interested in Snow Queen to trade anything from my list.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

I am bringing an item for door prize.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

GardenLover Gina, you are going to be the proud owner of a Changshaw orchard ...... ;-). I didn't separate them and am bringing the pot containing 8 plants. . Maybe you can use the little trees as trades next time.

They've been doused and soaked in systemic insecticide as have all the plants I'm bringing. I hate to use the stuff since it's leathal to bees if they get around it. European countries are seriously considering banning it and U.S. beekeepers are trying to get congress to listen.

Some of you may want to considering bringing a chair.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

Hey how is everyone doing? I will be attending tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been around. Don't have that much but I will have 7 Sweet Chocolate Pepper seedlings, 6 Chocolate Beauty Pepper Seedlings, 3 Casper Eggplant seedlings and 2 Ancho Gigatico Pepper seedlings.

It was another wonderful and well attended SAPS. Thanks everyone for coming and thanks again for the plants I received. They are much appreciated.

For once I think I got to talk to everyone except for one of tne of the attendees who popped in and out so quickly I didn't even see you

We really missed seeing those of you who didn't make it. Hopefully, you can come to the fall SAPS.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

I also had a wonderful time. I got to meet and visit with everyone that came. It was a beautiful day for a plant swap. Barbra

RE: Glad to meet you

Great meeting up with new faces. Lisa, Joe, and Joseph, I didn't know your online names to who you were till today. At least I now can visualize who you guys are. I'll try to pop in here occasionally. I'm not to keen on how this format runs but always love seeing your gardens in photos and learning from other gardeners.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

Thanks to everyone for the great swap today! I'll be busy with all these wonderful new plants.

Lisa-I have the dish from the yummy muffins you brought, let me know how to get it back to you.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

How in the world did I come home with more plants than I arrived with?

Tally I was able to keep the Crinums, but as you said - I forgot the names of them...can you tell by the picture?

Apology

My sincerest apologies to all with whom I had a trade or olive trees for.

I have been ill for several years, but basically functional. Last night it jumped up and bit me. I just didn't have the strength to make it to the swap or my other obligation in SA this afternoon.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

It was so nice to talk to everyone yesterday. And thanks for all the great plants.

Shirley- thanks for grabbing that container. I was cleaning up last night when I realized I didn't have it. Can I email you through the site so we can figure something out?

Hope everyone can make it to the fall swap! Lisa


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

Donna, so sorry to hear that you were 'under the weather' yesterday. Hoping and praying that strength and wellness returns soon. There will always be another swap and we'll look forward to seeing you then.

Plantmaven Kathy, I had my camera but never got around to taking pictures. Sorry. I'll try to do better next time.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

Kathy I really missed you! Wish you could have been there, I think it was the biggest turn out we ever had. I wanted you to met my friend K, He came to meet Tally, he is from the plumeria forum. Barbra

RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

I'm so glad you could see how it went Kathy, I kept getting busy and didn't get every one in but I think there were 22 in attendance this time. A very nice group too.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

Donna, so sorry to hear you were ill. I guess I'm lucky to have made it...on Sunday, the infection I'd been fighting went full-fledged and I was really sick. Hopefully, I'll be okay soon with the antibiotics the doctor gave me today. So glad to see everybody on Saturday!


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

Joe-your crinums are, from left to right
Hymenocallis-giant spider lily, may go dormant in your area.
Ellen Boussant (not sure on the spelling)-deep pink trumpet shaped flowers
Crinum americanum-native, goes dormant, spreads by runners, white, pink-tinged open spider type flowers.

Thank you for the response, Tally.


 o
RE: HAVE: San Antonio Spring Swap 2013 trades - Part 2

It was our first swap outing and we just wanted to say thanks to everyone. We only took eight plants to swap, but everyone was so helpful and generous. We had a great time meeting with everyone and hope to see you at the fall meet. Hopefully, we'll have more interesting plants to swap. Being newbies, we sure learned a lot. We really enjoy looking at all the pictures of the different gardens that are posted. They give us great ideas for our own place.
