Sorry everyone this will be the first year I do not bring grasses.
You have mail!
Nice to see you here. The grasses I got from you last swap are all doing great, even the zone 6 Miscanthus which was going to be iffy at best, survived this cold winter. I planted it on the south east corner of the house as I figured it would be warmer and sheltered there, and with a great snow cover all winter, it came back, and seems to be really taking off now that it has warmed up a little here.
I will make sure I have a couple of e. paradox for you, and yes I would love some Basjoo.
See you soon

|thanks , but i am working saturday night also and having the flu on sunday, looking forward to it, washed all my pots today, found some wood aneome!, native solomen and dug my tril, cathleen|
Just in case you don't read the regular forum in the next few days. Guess what I'm bringing on Sunday? Yes, I'm bringing Cardoons to eat! : )
Better late than never,
What on earth are cardoons? Aren't they those things that look like dandelions but have sharp spines on the leaves?
|Hi Penny, |
There is a lot of Cardone/Cardoon and burdock confusion. Cardone is a zone 7 and higher perennial, so it does not grow in this area. It is very closely related to Artichokes. It is generally harvested in the fall after the stems have grown for the season. This is sold at Wegmans during the winter early spring. It looks like Mutant celery.
Now somehow, when the Italians came here, they realized burdock, which of course is a readily available weed, that looks like Rhubarb, tasted like cardone. So the Italians call it Cardone/cardoon/ Cardooni/Gardooni/etc. Though also in the thistle family, it is not a close relative of artichoke like cardone. It is harvested in the spring.
So I will be making the burdock cardoon for everyone. It is cooked to be like fritters sort of. After cleaning, cutting up into small pieces, and boiling, it is mixed with eggs Italian breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. If you like artichokes, you'll like it.
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
|I can't wait Remy that was on my wish list!|
|I've got a couple of white irises I'll dig up for you Rosalinda...I also have diablo ninebark but it doesn't appear to have any shoots off of it. Can you root it? |
Hilde, I might have a couple of unknown varieties of phlox. I've got several but the tags faded so I don't remember which is which until they bloom.
Brenda, I've got your plants already to go. The galardia looks a little wilty but I got plenty of root so hopefully it perks up. If not, I'll get you some more.
Tauna, I've got bee balm set aside for you.
Is anyone looking for any particular Iris? I've got so many now, and most are in bloom but it seems most years people don't end up taking them. If anyone is looking for any specific colors/varieties, let me know.
|The purple trail site is giving me issues sending out directions. I'm hoping to straighten it out, but please disregard the first two emails it sent out tonight.|
|I am new to gardening and have just tried sowing seeds this year, so I won't have much to bring to the swap. What I can bring are golden acorn squash seedlings, lemon balm seedlings (very tiny), joe pye weed seedlings (again, very tiny), and some echinacea purpurea (common type that everyone seems to already have, lol). Anyone interested in these small, common little plants?|
|Shropshire, yes of course! We've got a good mix of new and old gardeners so you'll find people interested in all sorts of things!|
|I wouldn't mind some golden acorn squash seedlings. |
And yes Tara, I can at least try to root the Diablo - hopefully Brenda has some also, so some of it will root! I will bring a propagator set up with me....
|Hi Tara, |
I love phlox and will take your unknown variety! Thanks! Do you want me to bring you everbearing raspberry this year? (Caroline and Heritage)
Shropshire, this is my 2nd plant swap, and I am a novice gardener too. This is so much fun, and everyone are so nice, you will love it!
|OK Hilde, I'll pull one or two of the unknown phlox for you in the morning. Do you want Prarie Phlox too? Or just the garden phlox? No raspberries for me this year. Unfortunately we're having to move again. :( So I'm mainly just looking for things to fill the holes where I'll be pulling plants to move with me. Now next year I may be looking for some though!|
|Hi Tara, the Prairie Phlox looks beautiful. If it is not too much trouble, I would love some! I know the spot for it! (moist and full/partial sun) |
Wow, you are moving again! I will ask about it at the swap! Can't wait to see you again!
|What an absolutely wonderful plant swap it was!!!!! All of you who missed it, missed a great time, good food, wonderful plants, and a outstanding group of people. |
Thank you to everyone who brought so many interesting plants. I had so much fun and am already looking forward to next year.
Tara, you and Scott are really incredible hosts.
