RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

It's been hard to get cuttings to root in this heat!

So far I've got:

HAIRY TOAD LILLIES (prettier than it sounds ... LOL!): http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/537/

YELLOW MEXICAN BIRD OF PARADISE SEEDLINGS (5) fast growing, will bloom next year: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/57631/

JUJUBA (Chinese date) Just dug up 5 root sprouts from the Lee variety that should be nicely rooted in by swap time: http://www.crfg.org/pubs/ff/jujube.html

RED/ORANGE BARBADOS BIRD OF PARADISE (2)

ARROYA SWEETWOOD TREE Myrospermum sousanum, seedlings from early this year (2) http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/106237/

I can dig up CORAL VINES and CHOCOLATE PLANTS if anybody wants them. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/74323/

Oh and one purple ORCHID TREE sapling that I'm told will bloom on the south side of San Antonio, but not on the north side.

There's a few other small things hiding under the rooting table that made it through the summer that I'll post about later.

Looking forward to seeing all of you there!


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Roselee,

I would like one of the red/orange mexican bird of paradise.

My list is above. I'm sure I'll add more to the list soon. Have had no luck with seeds and limited success with rooted cuttings this summer, too.

Thanks
Shirley


 o
RE: oops, that wasn't exactly clear

I meant the red/orange Barbados...

 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Well Kathy, you know you have to save me an orchid vine seed or two!

I'll trade some pink passion vine seeds for them. Patty raised the vine I have from seeds. You probably saw the picture of it on the gallery.

I wonder if I should try to start some plants from these seed now?


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Ok, the orchid vine seeds are on your list.

So far I have the following on your list.
amaryllis
giant white beans
hoya vine


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

If I get to come, I will have more seeds than plants, is that okay Kathy
It will be so good to see y'all again
jolana


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

J, seeds are fine, but you certainly don't need to bring anything.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

I just stumbled in here and would love to come but I don't have anything but house plants I have propagated.
My plan is to get more gardening done starting with the seeds that I am germinating friends have given me.
Is is alright if I just come a drool and pick your brains?


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

We would love for you to join us!

Newbies usually don't have exchanges or swaps.
Come any way, we are always happy to share.

We have to pay rental for the pavilion. So you can donate a few $s towards that if you so desire.

Anything that concerns gardening. Pots, garden magazines, books, fencing etc. We even had several bring chicken or horse manure.

This is a sack lunch, if you plan on staying that long.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Texasfern,

Welcome, I'll bring an angel wing begonia for you. Look forward to seeing you there.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Hi Kathy, I'm not sure if I'll be coming, but can you save me some seed for snail vine and the orchid vine ? I'd appreciate it ! I still have your thryalis. Are you looking for anything else this year ?

patty


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Not coming, what!? Ummm, I think the bylaws say you have to be there. hahaha.
The snail vine is a plant.
Yes, I will save you seeds from the orchid vine.

Feel free to come by the house and get them and also your columbine.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Patty, I agree with the plantmaven. The only way you can get out of attending is with a note from a doctor! And it has to be hand delivered personally on the morning of the 10th of Oct. 2009.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Kathy,
I responded to your other post saying that I sent you a private email, but I see that it was here where I answered you and not a regular email.

would still love a snail vine if you have an extra for me. I may try to get by the house soon if I can. Will call ya.

patty


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

I will be cutting a branch off my yellow brugmansia, aka angel's trumpet. If anyone wants cuttings, post here. They root very easily, you just stick them in a container of water.

Yellow brug

Also will be pruning my sweet almond bush (Aloysia virgata), if any one wants to try rooting some of that.

Hope to see you at the next swap.

My List (if I make it to the swap)

Kathy,
Looks like I may be able to make it to the swap. So, here's my list. I would very much like to put together pre-arranged trades so I know what to bring. Those who know me, know that I usually bring too much, and I'm trying not to do that. So, please help me out and if I have something you're interested in, let me know.

Email me directly please through My Page since I check email much more than I come to GardenWeb. If you list here, I might not get it in a timely manner.

I have a plant sale for a church bazaar the week before the swap, and I am taking the following plants. I am listing them here because I will bring home whatever is left over. If you're interested in something let me know. If I have enough, and if you offer something wonderful, I'll yank it from the plant sale.

donkey ears
callisia fragrans / Old Man's Pipe
large elephant ears

Don't really know what I'm looking for. Always looking for something I don't have. Favorites are daylilies and irises. Also salvias. Let me know what you have. Remember to email me directly for the best results.

Thank you !!

Shirley

RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Ahh! Found the lists! Kathy, you can disregard my question in the other post.

I will get a list on here within the next day or so, but thought I'd go ahead and ask for a couple of things...

Roselee, I would love some chocolate plant!

Rock Oak Deer, do you have any plectranthus, Mona Lavender left?

Patty, will send you an e-mail shortly, glad you'll be able to make it!

Tonya


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Shirley, I have some of the old pale yellow bearded irises. Would you like a fan or two?

Tonya


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Tonya,

Thanks, I would like some yellow irs.

The Mona Lavender is not looking good right now (too wet,dry,or hot?) I'm working on some new starts and if they take, I'll definitely bring some for you.

Shirley


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Thanks Shirley. I'll put you down for some iris.

Tonya


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Thanks, Tonya.

Checked the new Mona Lavender starts today and they look pretty good, so I should have one for you.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Slow getting in here but glad I did!
I thought the date was the 19Th!
Shirley, thanks for the saving the begonia!
I was looking thru your list and saw that and jumped in my chair, then saw your offer!
Great!
Here's a couple of pictures of the kind of thing I will be bringing.
Now I am hoping to have these "flower Plates" mounted on pvc and ready to put in the ground.

I will also have some totems in different sizes. They are so pretty in the garden when the sun hits.
They can be used to hold plants, feed butterflies or birdbaths. I have one lady that uses them for buffet servers and candle holders.

RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

I am sooooo sorry for the typo!

The date is 10-10-09


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Those are very nice, Pat. I enjoy looking at those on the garden junk forum, too.

I've been thinking of a bottle tree, but DH is not too sure.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

OK, here's my list so far. Please e-mail me at tonyarose3@hotmail.com to let me know if you want me to set something aside for you. I am more likely to see it on that. Thanks!

Datura (devil's trumpet) 'black currant swirl' (2)
peppermint
Salvia farinacae (sp?) mealy cup sage
old fashioned pale yellow bearded irises
apple mint (2 kinds)
short mexican petunia
tall mexican petunia
shasta daisy 'white knight'
scabiosa columbara (pinchshion flower) white (3)
purple coneflowers - standard variety

jewels of opar (1)


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Tonya, just bring some of the Datura seeds for me if you have any. I'll trade the chocolate plants for them.

Texasfern, your flower plates are beautiful! They'll make great butterfly feeders, as well as small bird baths.

Anybody else see something you want on my little list near the top of the thread? I'll bring them all of course and there will be plenty of opportunity to swap when we get there.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Hi Ragna. I'll be glad to bring the seeds. The plants are small enough to bring inside for the winter and have a good start on spring if you change your mind on that. I did that with one last winter and it has grown huge. Actually the seeds I have are of a double purple, but I am not sure it is black currant swirl. I'll bring them.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Dang, I only found out about this swap today. Had I known a month or so ago I would have a bunch more to swap!

I'll be driving up from Alice, so instead of schlepping plants that no one wants I'm going to post my list and see if there's any interest.

Society Garlic (Tulbaghia violacea)
Stalked Bulbine (Bulbine frutescens)
Bromeliad
Butterfly Plant (Clerdendron ugandense)
Sky Flower, Golden Dew Drop (Duranta repens)

Japanese Lanterns (Hibiscus schizopetalus)
Mexican Firebush (Hamelia patens)
Cigar Plant (Cuphea ignea)


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Dstar, I'm interested in the Butterfly Plant (Clerdendron ugandense). What would you like to have in trade?

Tonya, okay, you talked me into it, not that it took much :-) I will take the black currant swirl datura plant. Thank you!


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Hi dstartz, glad you saw this and glad you are coming. You may have noticed in an earlier post that we will be at a pavilion toward the back of the park. You will probably see a plant swap as soon as you drive in, but that's another group, so even if you stop to look, come on around back to us, too! ....I am interested in cuttings from your hibiscus'snow queen" and japanese lanterns if you can give me guidance on the best way to get them to root. Please look at my list above and see what I can set aside for you. Also, it doesn't have to be even-steven with me. If you want more than two things, let me know!

=) Ragna does your arm hurt from me twisting it? Gotcha down for the plant and will bring seeds, too in case you want to try those as well.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

OH, OH,! So glad you will be coming. We always have a great time.

Check my list..the first post. I will also bring some
dried luffa fruit(?)
bird house gourds

Put me down for:

Japanese Lanterns (Hibiscus schizopetalus)
Butterfly Plant (Clerdendron ugandense)
Sky Flower 'Alba'

Kathy/plantmaven


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

I couldn't be happier that I'm going to get to swap some plants!

roselee
Butterfly Plant (Clerdendron ugandense) => Chocolate Plant

nbtonya
Hibiscus 'Snow Queen' => Old fashioned pale yellow Bearded Irises
Japanese Lanterns

Kathy/plantmaven
Japanese Lanterns (Hibiscus schizopetalus) => small aster plant
Butterfly Plant (Clerdendron ugandense) => Purple/white datura
Sky Flower 'Alba' -> Dutchman Pipe Vine

***** That is my only Sky Flower 'Alba' plant. I'll be taking more cuttings and putting them in water, in case anybody would be interested in them. *****

The moon will be semi-decent for propagation Tuesday (I'll be gone Thursday or I'd do it then); I'll take cuttings from the Hibiscus (& Duranta 'Alba') and get them started rooting in water. By the 10th they should at least have nubs.

RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

dstartz - Did you give away both Daturas, if not, I would like one. I am also interested in Rusellia and Hamelia.

My list is up above.

Thanks


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

rock_oak_deer, I'm afraid you have me mixed up with someone else.

Perhaps you mean nbtonya or plantmaven.


 o
oops

Sorry dstartz, I'm scrolling up and down and getting mixed up. Thanks, I need to start printing and keeping track.

Glad you are coming up to the swap and look forward to meeting you.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

dstartz
Would you give me your first name for my trade list.

I have a triple yellow datura also, if you want a cutting started for you.
Don't worry about even trades. We are all pleased to give things.

BTW what a great way to mark your trades =>!

Kathy


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

"BTW what a great way to mark your trades =>!"

Thank you!

Donna/dstartz


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Hi Donna,

I still have one datura 'black currant swirl' if you want that.

Tonya


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

OOPS! First we think Donna has the datura then we think she wants the datura. Sorry! I see that it is Shirley that wants a datura plant. Shirley, do you want me to put you down for a 'black currant swirl'?

Ragna, haven't heard back from you on the chocolate plant. Can I look forward to that, or are you "plumb out"?

Tonya


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Yes, Tonya the datura "black currant swirl" was what I saw earlier and was trying to request.

Thank you,
Shirley


 o
RE:Triple Yellow Datura

And, YES, Kathy, I would love a triple yellow datura.

Thank you!


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Tonya, I put Chocolate plant next to your name as soon as I read your first request. I've got lots of them, they reseed easily and are growing in several places around the yard, however I wouldn't call them invasive -- they sort of politely reseed just where they look the best, LOL, so if anybody else wants one just let me know so I can dig some up.

See my list above for anything else anybody wants.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Thanks Ragna, in reading back through the posts, I see that you did tell me that already. Sorry! I'm excited about the chocolate plant. I am always looking for differently colored foliage plants since I have so much green!

Tonya


 o
HAVE two Canary Island rose bushes ....

Tonya, as you probably know the chocolate plant has rich purple flowers held up on tall spikes. It's low growing habit makes it look nice draping over in a pot with other plants. Likes shade.

Also I have two Canary Island rose bushes. It's a once bloomer with lavender very fragrant flowers in spring. Nice shrub all summer with totally healthy foliage. I still have one.


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Roselee, you sold me on the chocolate plant and I would like one if you have more. I think Patty has it on her list, too.

Thanks - Shirley


 o
RE: wanted: have sa swap reminder

Okay Shirley. I will dig and bring several.

They are one of those perfect pass-along-plants.

Easy to dig. Easy to grow :-)
