hope this doesn't double post;
I just tried to post & it vanished!

Since it seems that we haven't had time for everyone to become comfortable with the swap site, (naming no names, & I'll start!), please post your haves & wants here & arrange pre-trades if you like.

My Haves:

pink 4 o'clocks
tall purple Mexican Petunia
fragrant phlox, orchid-colored flowers
English ivy, mostly rooted cuttings
Tradescantia (Wandering Jew) for outdoor gardens
1 hanging basket with variegated airplane plant
2 metal trellises with hummingbird motif for special trade
sedum, some rooted, can take cuttings
dwarf cannas, yellow edge, orange center
seeds:

Partridge pea
morning glory, sky blue & red/purple, mixed
small globe allium
red yucca, simply tons!

My Wants:

leatherleaf mahonia
pomegranite
evergreen anything

Since my garden is pretty full, & I eat but do not cook, homemade bread, brownies, etc are always welcome trades.

& I received some *wonderful* lotion at a previous swap, seems like it contains goat's milk & shea butter.
If anyone has that, I'll trade just about anything for it!

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Sherman-

I'd love the pomegranite!
I didn't know it would root from cuttings;
if you have time/space, I'd be happy to try rooting it, if you think it would work this late in the year (maybe I can over-winter it in Phyllis's greenhouse, hint hint).

& blackberry would be wonderful, too;
we used to pick blackberries from the side of the road when I was little!

I'll try to find you a lavender (but I *know* I have a small rosemary).

Thanks!

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Firebird, what kind of phlox is it you have? Is it the tall phlox with the big mop-like heads of flowers, or the spreading mats that like dry, hot, sunny areas?


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Mommyfox: the phlox are the tall ones with big mops of blooms. Look great in the flowerbeds when everything else has stopped blooming.

Sherman let me know if you see anything you like. I am interested in your
Tansy
Thornless blackberry
garlic What kind?
Wonderful Pomegranite - cuttings
garden fork

and Phyllis I have my eye on your cilantro as well as some muffins possibly :)


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

weenerdog,I will pot some cilantro for you and what kind of muffins do you prefer? I also have some purple trailing lantana rooting now but I don't know if it will be ready unless you would rather have cuttings. what colors are your larkspur and what does a ananas melon look like?


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Sylvia texas the crinium lily and bouganvillea are yours. How big is the trellis?


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Phyllisb2008,

I could get you some fig cuttings. I have Texas Everbearing which is sweeter and can bear two crops a year once established. The Petit Negri is less sweet but has stronger fig flavor. Any preference or should I bring both.

I would like to try the Greek Oregano. I have regular oregano. How is the Greek Oregano different? I could go for muffins or cookies too.

Sylviatexas,

I'll bring you Wonderful Pomegranate cuttings. They are easy to root but takes patience. It takes about 2-3 months to root with the cuttings in bright light (not direct sun) and temps around 70-80 degrees. Cooler temps and lower light may require even longer for rooting. They need to be kept at near 100% humidity while rooting.

I'll also dig up some thornless blackberry plants for you. I already have rosemary so won't really need another one.

firebird1,

I'll bring some larkspur seeds for zinnia seeds.

weenerdog,

I'll bring some tansy and thornless blackberry plants. The garlic is standard supermarket garlic. I also have another garlic (Elephant?) that grows much larger with a large flower stalk. However none of the large garlic have germinated yet. I'll bring you some wonderful pomegranate cuttings and the garden fork.

debbiedo7,

I'll bring some pomegranate and fig cuttings. I'll also dig up some blackberry and strawberry plants too.

All,

I can also get gardenia and rose cuttings. I don't know the rose types but one is fragrant and pink. The other one is red but is not fragrant. Both roses are susceptible to blackspot unfortunately.

Sherman


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

sherman,

Let me know what you want and you got it!

Phyllis,

You can surprise me on the muffins, whichever you have more of, both sounds good. I will take some cuttings of the lantana if they are not rooted yet, I don't mind rooting them out. Do they root pretty easily. I have both white and blue larkspur they are mixed so I don't know what is what. The ananas is a netted melon, it has white flesh with a mild taste. Let me know if you want em :)


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

weenerdog I'll bring the cuttings unless the ones I've got start showing some roots. usually I put them in soil but this time I'm trying rain water only so we'll see. they do well in the soil. I'll take some larkspur and just a couple melon seeds I would like to try them.

sshuang,
the everbearing would be fine. I have regular oregano also and to tell the truth they look the same to me except one spreads faster and is a little softer in color. which muffins do you prefer?

I forgot to mention that I have
forsythia cuttings available
and lots of baby airplane plants.


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Brenda and Ruben will be providing lunch and drinks. etc. Sherman, if you have a spare pomegranate cutting I would love to have one. And maybe a thornless blackberry.
Firebird - will you trade me a phlox for lunch?


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Yay, firebird!
it seems like the trellises are about 5' tall when stuck in the ground & maybe 30" across!

sherman, thanks!
I'll look for a lavender for you!


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

barefoot in texas, I sure will trade a phlox for lunch. thanks!

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Mommyfox

I have tons of the kind of phlox I *think* you want; spreads like a rumor, needle-shaped leaves, purple/orchid flowers, planted in full sun & it sat there for a full year before taking over the entire world.

I've stuck some spirea cuttings & some white mum cuttings (keeping fingers crossed), & I have "shade stuff" in the form of aucuba, 2 rooted cuttings.
Aucuba is green & yellow varieated, evergreen, & it grows to a small but sprawly shrub for me.
I really appreciate it in the winter when everything else is dead brown or dull gray!

I can use hibiscus & maybe some of the shrubs & I have a gardening friend who wants an azalea.

no idea what you still have or what's fair, so pick out what'll work & lemme know!

Deb-

I probably can bring you (as long as they don't croak) spearmint & peppermint for cockscomb seeds.

I've potted up a chocolate mint for you in a plastic bag;
all you have to do is dig a hole, plunk this in, & cut the bag away & add enough soil to secure it & add mulch & water.
Once established, chocolate mint cannot be beaten, & I think this one is well-rooted enough that it'll transplant easily.

Phyllis-

I thought you said I could get rich selling red yucca seeds online???
snork!
I'll bring you a bunch of red yucca seed for them homemade cookies (same offer extends to anyone & everyone!)

alley-

If you have enough, I can use oleander, Shasta daisy, & purple coneflower;
I've stuck some purple/orchid autumn aster today, hope it roots in time...
but I didn't see anything else on your want list that I have;
please let me know what you are still missing, & I'll try to find it!

just 2 more weeks!


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

I have so much trouble keeping track that I don't really try anymore. If we have already agreed on a trade for lunch I'll just trust y'all to remember what it is :) If we haven't agreed on a trade, just bring me something pretty. I'm real easy to please, just ask my hubby lol


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Brenda, can you use a rosemary?

I have a young one, rooted just this summer, but it's well-established.

It's a Meditteranean (never can spell that right) herb, & it gets pretty big, about 3'x3'; it likes hot sunny weather, good drainage, & walks on the beach.
no, wait a minute, that ain't rosemary...
It's evergreen, & it smells like Christmas!

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Phyllis - is your pink heart the dicentra/bleeding heart or the geranium/pelargonium? Gee, now I see theres also a Pink Heart verbena! (I hadnt heard of it, so did a google search) Is your zebrina dwarf hollyhock hardy here? Its a very pretty plant. How big are your plants? Mine are in 4" pots, and are growing well. I would definitely like some of your plants and seeds. How many pansies and snaps do you have in mind? Please take a look at my post to see if there is anything else you might want.

Sherman (Sshuang) - Yes, Id love to have your milk jugs and soda bottles, and maybe a few of your plants or seeds. Please take a look at my list on the Swap Forum, and see if you find anything you would like. Im posting a question on the regular forum about your everbearing strawberry.

Here is a link that might be useful: my list on Swap Forum


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

A word on using the two swap sites, this GardenWeb forum and the one that's www.ftworthgardenswap.com ...

I made the latter site, with Element321's help, with the hope of being useful. Since it took me longer than I thought to get it together, a lot of folk haven't had time to find it or to get used to how it works. So I think it's perfectly ok that some folk would rather stick to this forum. Maybe by the spring swap, I'll have a better intro worked out, a little more publicity to draw people to the site, and so forth!

I like to see the site getting used, but really, it's all about having fun, sharing our plants and our love of gardening with each other. So if you're comfy over there, hurray! If you're not, certainly no one will hold it against you! I do encourage folk to get ahold of me if they want some help getting set up, it is nice to be able to edit posts and lists and stuff.

However it gets done, it's good. I'm glad we have these swaps, and I can't wait to see everyone! :D


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

My swap items will be with Elements as he has graciously offered to bring them over from Dallas. Mostly, items spoken for will be sent as he does not have much extra room. Have added description here as will not be there to chat. Sounds like great fun.... drat that red light runner that put the kabosh on my traveling.

I am an organic gardener with small urban raised bed garden - dont need large quantities. Like plants and seeds that are special to gardeners in our area, but also use cheapo 10 cent packets successfully. Likewise my plants and seeds are refined to best tasting, least trouble, increase moderately and are not labor intensive, tend to low water native p. or self seeding flowers. Except for the tomato, there will go to trouble, but have a refined selection that does well here. Also grow medicinal and herbal plants, imo better for you than pills. Into salads with a wide variety of tastes from greens and flowers. Have nice selection of fragrant, hummingbird and butterfly plants. EVERYTHING HERE LISTED IS FROM MY GARDEN.

HAVES:

*Bitter Melon - robust, pretty vine - produces longevity fruit - a lot. Makes great refrigerator Fruit Chutney.

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Liz,

acually it's called purple heart wandering jew. I say pink heart because the flowers are pink. the hollyhocks are in 4in. pots and about 3in. tall and they are very hardy and reseed heavily you will have seeds coming up all over from them blowing. I would like some of the onion chives and a few of the snapdragons and pansys I'm using them for window boxes so maybe 6 or 8 each. any color. let me know.


Sandy,

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

wish you could make it to the swap, but maybe
you can come to the one next Spring.

If you have enough, I'd love to have any portion of:
heirloom tomato seeds
taro
pink & white salvia
Quaker Lady iris (been pining for one of these for *years*!)
Mme Alfred Carriere cuttings
"Gardening in the South"

I can bring
mulch
culinary sage
garlic
thyme
dwarf cannas for sure, probably some regular ones
an unknown low growing landscape rose, clusters of small double flowers in spring, sporadic flowers later, grows like a rambler but not very tall
red salvia if you can use a cutting that I stuck maybe 3 weeks ago.

PLMK!

sylvia

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Sylvia,
Yup, that's the phlox I want! I'm hoping it will spread throughout this heeeeuge 8' x 20' bed that I have as an underplanting to a bunch of tall stuff. Spirea and mum cuttings would be great! I think the cuphea I cut for you is rooting; we will see. I looked up aucuba; that looks really nice! I'd love one. Say, how 'bout I just back my car up to your yard? :D

I'll definitely bring you a hibiscus. In fact, I've got six of 'em - I just don't want to take care of them through the winter again. I'm de-tropical-ing my yard, going for more cottage-y stuff. So if you want more than one you're welcome to it. I'm waffling on bringing big shrubs. If you name one you want I will bring it, otherwise I'll leave 'em where they are until I have something that needs to go in their spot!

Phyllis - Plan on the snapdragons & pansies. I'm sorry that my chives are pretty questionable. (I gave some to a friend & the replacements I seeded aren't growing nearly as fast as the originals.) I would like some zebrina hollyhocks and seed for red salvia, red cypress vine, and hyacinth vine. How does that sound?

Sandy, this all sounds great! Yes I would like the book. I'll check over my seeds & get back to you. I'm almost sure I have plants left - been wracking my brain trying to remember who else besides you & Phyllis asked about them.

As far as I can tell, only Firebird, Sandy/Organic Gardener & Phyllis have asked me for snapdragons. Have I missed anyone?

firebird - what's a red allemande? Does it go by any other name?


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

We generally don't invite vendors because that's not really the nature of the swap. If we started going down that road, I think it would be difficult to know where to stop. However, I don't see any reason he couldn't bring a portfolio and a big ol' pile of business cards.


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

liz h: I think I have misspelled the name, and maybe have the wrong name. This climbing or trailing plant has dark green leaves (similar to gardenia) and has about 2" blossoms, red or yellow. I see them a lot in nurseries in spring, and bought a red one. The name on the tag has faded out. Maybe you will recognize it from my description.


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

liz h: I just clipped the tag off that plant and did a search on it, although the print was very dim. The name of the plant is mandevilla, not allemande as I originally wrote on my list. The blossom is red.

You know, I would ordinarily say 'no vendors', but this guy is giving a ride to a trader (my friends know how my car looks after a swap-they always claim their pick-ups are in the shop when "swap season" rolls around!)

so maybe he can bring a sample or 2 of his work, & if he can find a trade for it, too cool, & if someone wants to place an order to buy one...too cool as well.

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Phyllisb2008,
I could get you some Texas Everbearing Fig cuttings and larkspur seeds.

I would like to try the blueberry muffins if you have some.

Sylviatexas,

I'll bring you Wonderful Pomegranate cuttings. They are easy to root but takes patience. It

takes about 2-3 months to root with the cuttings in bright light (not direct sun) and temps

around 70-80 degrees. Cooler temps and lower light may require even longer for rooting. They

need to be kept at near 100% humidity while rooting.

I'll also dig up some thornless blackberry plants for you.

firebird1,

I'll bring some larkspur seeds and some pomegranate cuttings.

weenerdog,

I'll bring one tansy and one thornless blackberry plant. I'll bring you some wonderful

pomegranate cuttings and the garden fork. I'd like to try the lemon balm. The one I had a few

years ago died.

debbiedo7,

I'll bring some pomegranate and Texas Everbearing Fig/ Petite Negri Fig cuttings. I'll also

dig up some blackberry and strawberry plants too.

barefoot_in_texas,

I'll bring you some pomegranate and thornless blackberry cuttings for lunch and drinks.

liz_h,

I'll bring you the empty milk jugs and soda bottles. I'll also bring some everbearing

strawberry plants. I can try some of your homemade bread.

sandy_8b,

I'll bring you blackberry, fig, and gardenia cuttings for some peppermint.

element321,

I can bring you some Texas Everbearing Fig/ Petite Negri Fig cuttings. I'm assuming you want

this as your message was a bit unclear.

All,

I can also get gardenia and rose cuttings. I don't know the rose types but one is fragrant and

pink. The other one is red but is not fragrant. Both roses are susceptible to blackspot

unfortunately. I also have jasmine. It has small white fragrant flowers and is a small bush.

It seems to be zone 9 so needs protection from Dallas winters. I'll also bring some

thornless blackberry cuttings since that is very popular and I don't have that many extra

plants.

Crinim bulbs-solid white, large bulbs, "cemetery, churchyard" old fashioned type. Lots of flowers that last only one day.

Turk's Cap, red. A few small plants dug two weeks ago from flowerbeds. Could bring cuttings.

Oxalysis bulbs

Brazilian Verbena (Verbena bonariensis) Tall, "see through" purple flowers that attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Have several rooted plants that I cut back and potted a few days ago. Full sun, blooms mid-summer through fall. Drought tolerant, re-seeds itself.

Sansevieria, Mother-in-Laws Tongue. Several newly potted plants.

Mexican petunia. Low growing with purple flowers. A few potted plants.

Duranta (Skyflower). Clusters of small blue flowers edged in white. Can make a few cuttings. It is supposed to be easy to root from cuttings. I haven't tried yet.

Esperanza. Can bring a few cuttings.

Crape Myrtle. A couple of plants dug and potted a week ago. Watermelon pink?

Seeds from wildflower, Mealy Blue Sage. Original plant came from Bosque County. Very tall, blooms late summer. Lots of blue flowers on spikes. Very attractive to butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. May be too lanky for your taste, but I think the color of the blooms and attraction is worth their tendency to droop.

Seeds. Narrow leaf, Crystal White Zinnia. Not the tiny flowers, about 1 1/2" blooms. Does well in heat. Good for borders.
Seeds. Veronica. Speedwell.

Seeds. Moonflower, just a few

Seeds. Italian sweet basil. Also a few plants.

Seeds. Dill. A few small plants.

Seeds. Zebrina hollyhock, AKA French Hollyhock (Malva Sylvestris) 24-36", sun to partial shade. No pest problems, heat and drought tolerant. Light lilac blooms with darker veins in throat. Have some seeds and may be able to bring a few small plants. Reseeds and you can move small plants easily to wherever you want them.

Seeds. Purple hyacinth vine. A few.

Seeds-Hardy Ageratum.

Pond plants- Iris (blue), Horsetail. (I also have some umbrella plants and white water lilies, if anyone is interested--I will have to get serious about collecting these.)

Can bring cuttings of Artemisia, Powis Castle

Possibly Red hot poker & American Beautyberry; small plants. (I will know for sure by Monday evening; These are coming from a friend.)

I'm still digging around to see if I can find anything else.

Wants: Four o'clocks, Hollyhocks, Snapdragons, violas, alysium, Bells of Ireland, Coreopsis or?? No food please-I eat it instantly. Also,the tall Mexican petunias sound interesting.

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Hi chickenmom, I would be interested in the oxaylis bulbs,brazillian verbena and the dill seed. I have pale pink,cherry pink and yellow 4 O'clocks I might have some irish bells seed but not sure I will look for them. any or all would be fine.look on my list and see if your interested in anything. let me know. thanks


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Hi Chickenmom -

I would love some of your cemetery Crinums. I don't have anything on your want list, but I thought i might be able to tempt you with either some Oxblood lily (rhodophiala bifida) or a pink turk's cap (rooted, blooming, in a 1-gallon pot).

Please let me know yay or nay :)

Thanks!

Lin

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

can't believe I'm saying this but...
I'd like to trade for some of your historic iris!

(Addiction can be an enjoyable thing!)

& white crinum if you have enough & if I can bring you enough to make the trade equible.

I have approximately 7000 more 4 o'clocks than Phyllis, but mine are all the light, mauvy pink.

& I can bring you Zebrina hollyhock & tall purple Mexican Petunia.

If there's anything else on my list that tickles your fancy, just let me know, & I'll bring it!


 o
RE: 'free to good home' plants

I cleaned out (sort of) just one overgrown flowerbed yesterday, & I have a couple of boxes of iris, historics in mixed colors (they were too crowded to bloom last year, & I can't remember from the year before) & mauve 4 o'clocks.

& I picked up a bunch of begonias from a gardener who was ripping them out & throwing them into black plastic trash bags.

After planting as many as I had room for, I still have bunches;
Phyllis has had good luck overwintering begonias by keeping them well-watered & well-mulched.

If you'd like to try any of these, bring some boxes or bags or newspaper wrappings!


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Hi Phyllis, I'll be sure to have oxaylis bulbs, verbena and dill seed for you. Four o'clocks would be great; I may need instruction on where to plant them. I just remember a big bush of them growing when I was small.

Barkingdogwoods-I'll have the cemetery lillies for you and would like to try the pink Turks Cap.

Sylvia-You must be addicted to iris if you just dug up a big bed and want more! Wish I could identify the individual corms. There is a very pretty pink and a yellow with lower petals which are white edged in yellow. Also there are peach (they seem to be the most dominant-since they are my least favorite color) and some blue that have small flowers. I have several of the white cemetery lily bulbs and will be sure you get some. I'd like to swap for your tall Mexican petunias and maybe some phlox. Don't know much about either of them, but I assume instruction and advice are included with all exchanges. Right?...

Should I bring all that other stuff along? Is there usually a fairly good sized group, so I can hope to get rid of, uh..pass along a lot of things? Or should I leave the plastic tub of cannas here and try to give them away on Craig's list or something? I'm looking forward to the get together.
Thanks!!!

RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Thanks Chickenmom. Can't wait


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Hi Chickenmom- the pink Turk's cap now has your name on it. I'll be there early but will need to leave around 11, as I have to go to Dallas for a Greyhound meet-and-greet with my 2 foster dogs. Hope I can hook up with you - otherwise I'll try to find someone who will keep my plants for me...

The pink Turk's cap seems to me to come out a little later than the red, but boy the blooms are so soft and delicate!

Can't wait to see y'all!

chickenmom,
How about some coreopsis (tickseed) for brazilian verbena?


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Hi Ally-Brazilian verbena plants for coreopsis sounds great! I think you will like this plant-it is different, very reliable and really attracts butterflies. Kind of blends in with its long stalks.

Debbie-I'll have plenty of Iris for you and will bring red hot poker.

Dirt Mama- Could I bring horsetail for you and get white Geranium?

Element-I have Mother-in-laws tongue for you. Do you still have any yellow columbine seeds?

D. Carpenter-I would love your hollyhock if you still have any. Do I have anything you might want to take in trade?

Barkingdogwoods-I will plan to be at the swap no later than 10:00 (unless I'm wandering around the park looking for the group!) I have a friend with a rescue greyhound and she is the sweetest dog--so calm and just so smart!!

Thanks, all.

 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Phyllisb2008,
I could get you some Texas Everbearing Fig cuttings and larkspur seeds.

I would like to try the blueberry muffins if you have some.

Sylviatexas,

I'll bring you Wonderful Pomegranate cuttings. They are easy to root but takes patience. It takes about

2-3 months to root with the cuttings in bright light (not direct sun) and temps around 70-80 degrees.

Cooler temps and lower light may require even longer for rooting. They need to be kept at near 100%

humidity while rooting.

I'll also dig up a thornless blackberry plant for you.

firebird1,

I'll bring some larkspur seeds and some pomegranate cuttings.

weenerdog,

I'll bring one tansy and one thornless blackberry plant. I'll bring you some wonderful pomegranate

cuttings and the garden fork. I'd like to try the lemon balm. The one I had a few years ago died.

debbiedo7,

I'll bring some pomegranate and Texas Everbearing Fig/ Petite Negri Fig cuttings. I'll also dig up some

blackberry, jasmine, and strawberry plants too.

barefoot_in_texas,

I'll bring you some pomegranate and thornless blackberry cuttings for lunch and drinks.

liz_h,

I'll bring you the empty milk jugs and soda bottles. I'll also bring some everbearing strawberry

plants. I can try some of your homemade bread.

sandy_8b,

I'll bring you blackberry, fig, and gardenia cuttings for some peppermint.

element321,

I can bring you some Texas Everbearing Fig, Petite Negri Fig, thornless blackberry, and pomegranate

cuttings.

alley,

I'll bring you some jasmine. I get access denied when I try to access your list.

dcarpenter,

Can I get some lavender from you? That is the only thing I'm really looking for this plant swap. You

can check my list (3rd post) to see if there is something you want.

joie33,

I'll bring some luffa seeds for you.

All,

I can also get gardenia and rose cuttings. I don't know the rose types but one is fragrant and pink.

The other one is red but is not fragrant. Both roses are susceptible to blackspot unfortunately. I

also have jasmine. It has small white fragrant flowers and is a small bush. It seems to be zone 9 so

needs some protection from Dallas winters, at least for the first winter. I'll also bring some

thornless blackberry cuttings since that is very popular and I don't have that many extra plants.

I'll probably show up around noon since we have piano lessons until 11am.

Sherman


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

dirtmomma, I have schoolhouse lilies, which are a smallish early-fall-blooming amaryllid with red flowers, that I can trade you for a crinum.

Chickenmom, I have you down for tall Mexican petunias & phlox for historic iris & white crinum.

joie, I have you down for 4 o'clock (feel pretty crummy about this, since I now have a huge box of 4 o'clocks, but I'll bring you something more if you like!) & Confetti lantana for orange mint.

alley, if you have enough oleander & coneflower, I can use them, & you can have first crack at my "seed box"!

elememt, I'd be happy to get fresh oleander cuttings *if you have time*.

firebird, I'm bringing the trellises for the crinum & bouganvilla, & it's fine with me if your friend brings trellises or flyers or business cards!

fortunegardener, I have you down for white rose, possibly Ducher, & cuttings for Seven sisters, in return for amaryllis & brugs if you have enough.

Imabirdnut, I have your name on my only butterfly bush (think it's purple but won't swear to it), for white salvia & blue La iris.

sandy, I'll bring you some cannas, can dig up the dwarf & regular types.


 o
RE: Ft Worth Swap: Post Haves & Wants Here

Sylviatexas, I didn't quite understand if you were saying that you did or didn't have much of the 4 O'Clocks. Someone else is also bringing me 4 O'Clocks so if you don't have much don't worry. I don't need much anyway. I have a small yard. It's all good!

All--How badly would it mess things up if I didn't come til after about 12:30? I've changed my plans and am not doing my afternoon thing and my kids have soccer games in the morning. I was going to miss them, but if I come later, I can go to them. I know there is a greyhound thing (can't remember who had to leave early and if I traded something with them--let me know).
I don't know what I'm doing. I may just miss the games anyway (I usually spend more time talking to parents anyway).

Hi all -

First of all I did my Greyhound Meet-and-Greet last night at the Quarterback Bowl in Ft. Worth so I'll be able to stay at the swap - HOORAY!

Secondly, I have some small starts (4" pots) to offer:

: Flame acanthus - hummingbirds love these! pretty red-orange colors
: Texas Star Hibiscus - single flower, star-shaped (see link)

Please LMK if you're interested.

My computer is broken down and I'm at the library now using theirs :(

sshuang, I have you some lavender seeds already packed up. You can just give me anything that you want.

Mikeb, sounds like a plan to me.

For everyone else that responded, I have your plants and seeds all ready to go and will see everyone in the morning!!!!

chickenmom, 'scuse if someone's already answered but, *yes*!, bring *all* that stuff, plastic tubs & soda bottles & hamburger containers from the fast food places for winter-sowing enthusiasts, cannas, nursery pots, any- & every-thing.

(I once came home from a swap with 40 lbs of sheep manure!)

momfox-
You & I have such a large swap going that I've lost track, but if you have an extra tropical hibiscus, I'd sure love to have it.

Last winter, I think the hibiscuses (hibiscii?) kept me alive just by beaming on me with their bright & smiling flower faces!

Barefoot,
I put a message on your list on the ftworthgardenswap.com page - I overcommitted the salvias, and a couple of them pooped out; I asked if you'd take anything else for lunch. I figured since I hadn't heard back from you, you could just pick whatever you wanted out of my stash at the swap. :)
