Will you all please check my list and see if I have your name on everything you wanted from me? Also, if there are any of you who want anything that is not taken,(there will be a number with no name beside it), please let me know. I am going to close my list after Sat., May 1st because I will be going to my daughter's for Mother's Day for a few days. As soon as I get home from her house I will be getting my suitcase packed to come to Jeri's so I won't have time to be digging and potting any more plants after Saturday. Thank you!

Marilyn - I'd like a Big Dipper EE if no one else wants it. I see you asked for a Calidora from someone else. Do you want two? I have one no one has asked for. The EE's that are coming back seem to all be Mirandas. I had at least 5 or so diff ones back there, not sure if the others will come back or not at this point. But I will be you Miranda.

edited to say - huh? "I will be you Miranda"? LOL I meant of course to say I will bring you some Miranda -

Since it has warmed up my rose cuttings have died. I will have to take those off the list. Everything else looks like it will make to the RU.

Ems- would love it if those easter lilies would live and stay around for me. I have planted and planted those and they bloom beautifully(I love them too) and then to my disappointment they promptly disappear never to return. I don`t know if a critter is eating them or what. I wish some of the weeds would disappear like that.LOL!!! The crinum lilies are always staying put so I have started collecting those a little more.

Marsue,I`ll take any leftovers. There is always somewhere I can plant things around here.

Riverland - Theblueish iris in the other thread is Sinfonietta and a newbie to my garden I bought last year. I will share this one in future RUs if it will multiply for me in the next year aftter it gets established.

The iris I do have up for grabs at the RU is one I think came from you. Do you reecognize this picture? It is a huge bloom 6 in and is lavender.The picture isn`t doing it justice either. This is a big frilly bloom that gets attention.

Karen - this is the second year for the E. lilies - and boy did they multiply! These haven't bloomed yet - they are planted in an area that no longer gets sun since johnny put up the shed. I'll bring you some and hopefully you will at least get one year of blooms out of them. I have some crinums that were here when I moved in 3 years ago and they still haven't bloomed - just not enough sun I think.

I also have 4 potted up already gone through shock Rice paper plant, they wilt severely but these are showing new growth and not wilting any longer. This is all I have potted, but I have more, they will be severely wilted though if I pot more, they won't have time to recover good, but will probably still live.

I also have these, I think leeks but not sure, I need to find out, how can I find out? anybody know?

I have one of your rice paper plants which I haven't put in the ground yet, KA. I will give it to whoever wants it because I have decided it is not what I thought it was (can't remember why I asked for it--LOL)

Marilyn how come you didn't ask for a bombast poppy? I figured you and charlotte would want those.

Just wondering. I know you don't have room for everything. LOL

I'm about to go find the herb forum and post that picture above and another picture of what might be garlic, and see which is garlic and whichis leeks, I'd like to start using them, I dug all these up last year and danny saw me dumping them and he transplanted them out at the edge of the woods, and they are all about to take over the woods now. so I figured I'd better find out if they are leeks or garlic, I had both at one time

I had sown some poppy seeds last fall but evidently none of them has come up or if they did, I thought they were weeds and pulled them up! If you have a bombast poppy left, I will take one of those, too, Kathy Ann.

Marilyn, it really doesn't have spines. I break the pieces off with bare hands. They're more like hairy little protrusions. It's realy more of a succulent...
I'll bring you one and if you don't want it after you see it, you can give it away... won't hurt my feelings!



Forgot...does anyone want any mullien? I dug some at the lake and brought them home. Looks a little like lambs ear with a very tall yellow spike in the fall. The spike dries and you need to cut it off before it goes to seed or you'll have lots of them. It's a herb...very drought resistant.

Kim, I wish you were going with us, too. We are going to have so much fun! I don't think Charlotte would mind squeezing in some plants from you on the trip down and even possibly some plants for you on the trip back.

I am bringing more than 30 plants and with Kathy Ann's and Charlotte's plants plus possibly some from Kim, I think the back of Charlotte's truck will be packed so I better close my list. so here is my official notice -LOL-
MY LIST IS NOW CLOSED!

Karen, I put your name on the few extras that I have. Did you want the ditch daisies, too? They are pretty but they can spread quickly.

Becky, I have your name on a Hot Lips but it is very small so you might want one from Genna, too. However, they grow extremely fast if planted in good soil. The one Sandra gave me in April, 2008, was 3 inches tall when she gave it to me. By the end of the season, it was huge: 3 ft. x 3ft. at least!

LOL.. Marilyn... actually I had forgotten about asking for the hot lips from you, till I checked my list..lol...but if Genna will give me a start also, I'd like 2 so I can put them on the east side of the shade garden one on each end. That area gets more sun, and the shade garden is also my memory garden for my DD. His fav color was red

LOL... well, we all know I am not the best at getting things to live, so we'll see how many make it ! But I will put you down Beck

I am also not as good at getting things to grow as Marilyn... the hot lips she gave me is only about 2 ft high after 2 yrs - but thankfully it is blooming like crazy already where last year I had to wait until late August or Early Sept for my first blooms!

By the way Marilyn, I did notice a few that were red and white so maybe the next rush of blooms will be the right color! :)

Becky: the Hot Lips is sure enough a sun plant. It needs a minimum of 6 hours a day to do well. I hope it will get that much sun in your shade garden?

Genna: I noticed that my Hot Lips is also starting to put on red and white blooms. I guess it "remembered" what color it is supposed to be! LOL

Lyle will be back in TN and me and PeCe are driving alone and going to stay in a motel. Hey.. I know you'll have all kinds of plants people want... btw... did you slip one of those NOID's we were talking about into my pile at GCRU??? I think it sure looks like it..LOL

Marilyn.. I think that area gets 6 hours... but if not I'll move it.I had a pink hot lips looking one, and it did fine there, but I lost it too... sniff. My other red hot lips was planted in full sun though and as i said she went to plant heaven too! Petunias and roses are growing on that end too so maybe??

The lil bedroom has a full bed..lol.. so I guess if one of the men act up we could sent them there..LOL We live in a trailer, so it's tiny compared to a house but y'all are more than welcome.. anytime!. I was thinking the best thing to do was leave Thursday and stay in a motel close to Jeris, then try and take the plants to her house... can we Jeri?? I don't think the plants would like it in a hot car over night.. and yeah... more room for Forest Hill..lol

Becky, Really appreciate the offer but Bruce reminded me that we'd be going a day early if we did that. I have some co-op plants coming and hopefully, they'll get here before I have to rely on DD to open box and replant 'em. Our plan is to stay in Lake Charles Thurs night and drive up to FH Fri morning. Stay in Central Fri nite ..and swap, swap, swap Saturday!!! BTW your yard is gorgeous and that's a mobile home...not a trailer. Hope you'll invite us again. Would love to stroll the garden with you! And Bruce loved the part about having to maybe stay in the little room if he misbehaved! I'm the bad one, ...not him!

Marilyn.. that's my swing inside the shade garden... I made a mistake.. that's what I get for not enlarging those thumb print pics, but that was taken about 2 weeks ago... I have done a lot to it since then. As Sandra says "it" takes up a lot of valuable real estate..lol.. so I enlarged the inside on the end coming into it, and planted more hostas and stuff, and got my arbor up on the east end

showing a pic of the arbor, that leads to no where so far..lol.. I have to dig those daylilies out, and make another path in

Yes Kim and they are loaded this year. It seems that all the fruit trees have an abundant load of fruit setting. Unfortunately the birds are the only ones that enjoy the loquat, figs, pineapple guava and persimmons. I'm covering my blueberry bushes so I get the berries this year.

Everybody, those plants I have been calling Ditch Daisies, have turned out to more likely be Marguerite Daisies, thanks to an id by Cindy. I had a Margeurite Daisy two seasons ago but it didn't do anything last year--thought I lost it. Evidently, it reseeded itself and now it has come back and is blooming with lovely white flowers. I have two of these potted up and they are ready for the taking--first come, first served!

I have an announcement to make.

I'm affraid i'm going to have to bow out of coming to the RU . I have two graduations this year, both kids are graduating, but have worked around those dates and was hoping that I didn't forget any other obligations for graduation. But unfortunately I have let one obligation slip by me, and it's a honor banquet for my son on the l6th of May. Graduation comes once in a life time. And I don't want to let any of this slip away from me. I missed my Son's prom last weekend. Although it wasn't a big deal. (He didn't have a date) . I sure don't want to miss anything else concerning his special moment.

I have made arrangements with Charlotte to bring all my plants down there to distribute among those that have asked for them. I forgot to ask her if she'd bring mine back LOL but i'm sure she probably wouldn't mind that either.

I'm going to Little Rock this Friday to bring the plants to Kim and Charlotte is going to pick them up from her house. I truly appreciate her doing this for me. She has no idea what she's getting into ha!

I'm sure you guys will understand about the banquet and me backing out, I should hav e checked before committing to the RU on the date of that Banquet. I feel bad about that. I am goin g to miss a good time. But There is always another RU and not another Graduation.

Yes he wuvs you! Guys are different about expressing things. I remember when my son was in high school and played football and didn't get home from practice until very late. So one night we decided to go ahead and eat before he got home. When he got home and I fixed him his dinner, he looked around realizing only one plate had been set and asked have you all already eaten. That was all he said but the way he said it and the look on his face told me he was really hurt. He was used to all of us sitting down to eat together. So we never ate without him again.

I'm back @ City_Sylvia's after making N Tx RU in Arl today. Talked my 86 yr old mom to going again! She had a blast! Took her 2 yrs ago & she really enjoys them. When I took her back home (FtW) she had me out digging up a bunch of plants that she felt that were in the wrong place. With every one I dug, she would say, 'Now, I could pot that up & take it in the fall!' I told her 'Yep'
I will post my list when I get back home which depends on the driver, Smock.
B4 ya'll ask, Smock & I live 50 miles apart but travel together when we make these far-away RUs. Beck can testify! lol

To all: I'm trying to finish up my trade list so I can get everything ready to go. We have to be in Dallas this weekend. Casa Flora Ferns has invited our garden club up to tour their facility. We may go up earlier in the week. And the next week, we wil be leaving mid week to get to Forest Hill early! We plan to spend Thurs. nite in FH. Time has gotten away from me!
I need to know where to go to meet ya'll too. I'll send my cell phone # to Jeri. Can hardly wait to see all of you!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it to the RU after all. I've been having a lot of flares lately and I had gotten better in time to go to Bonnie's . Then I managed to fracture a toe, of all things , that weekend. I thought it was just jammed but , no, it's cracked. It's not too bad and I can walk on it , but I can't dig. I did get my stuff potted up today using a trowel except for a few and I had someone dig those for me. I'll just have to wait and see how it is next week. Seems to be my motto lately. lol
If I can't come, I'll try to get everyone's plants to them later.

There's nothing you can do for a broke toe except wait for it to heal. It's not bad as long as I don't put pressure on it from a shoe. I'm wearing mostly sandles and I'm fine to walk then as long as I don't twist or bend it too much.

Jeri, after the flares, the pain from the toe hasn't really been very bad. Save a recliner for me, just in case!

I hope to get to come anyway. I just hate Sandra won't be with me. It takes that long ride for us to get caught up on our talking! lol

Sandi, I would like a night blooming cereus. I had a huge one that froze this year. It had to be close to 10 years old. It was over 3 years for it bloomed when I got it. My dog (hated or loved )the smell of the flower and distroyed it.It had opened up near the rocker and couldn't close up when daylight came because the top half of the bloom was hung on the rung.of the rocking chair.

KathyAnn, I am glad you chose your son, cherish every moment you can, but I am sorry you will not be able to come for the roundup.

Sandra, I had no idea you weren't comming to Jeri"s, it will not be the same.
What about Ruth? How is she doing? Sure would love to see both of you.

Well, the reason I didn't post a "trade list" was for fear I would lose all my cuttings... :( Well, it looks like the few Baptista, Cherry Queen and La Trinidad cuttings that I had have all bit the dust! So, I went back and started over - although I do not have enough of those three plants to try again. So I had to find something else!

I did try several Victoria Blue Salvia - I believe I have 7 of those...

I have also attempted some of the Mellow Yellow Salvia - although I am not sure how well they will root.

I have a couple of Argentine Skies Salvia that I am sure that would be pretty easy to pot up if anyone is interested, and plenty of Mary Stoker mums if anyone is interested. Just let me know. Then I have PLENTY of the Yellow and Red Marble 4:00s - although the may be half grown by next weekend! LOL I also have pink and fushia is anyone is interested. Sorry that the others that everyone had asked for didn't make it. Maybe this year my plants will have plenty of growth and I will be able to root some later in the year...

Marilyn, by the way, my two little stalks of that white phlox is absolutely outdoing itself! I can't wait until they multiply and i have a nice stand- they are so pretty!

Genna, a general rule of thumb is to allow 6 weeks for something to root from cuttings.
If you put several cuttings in a pot, you will also get a better chance of getting some rooted. Try to get a long enough cutting to have at least 2 leaf nodes in the soil, 3 if possible, strip the lower leaves. Some plants root quicker with hormones, some will rot if you use the hormone.
Sink the cutting deep into your pot and close together, remember how you gather flowers and hold the stems together to make a bouquet, hold them together like that to put them into the pot to root. Water them well and put them in a shady place. Just keep them watered and don't pull on them. It is so tempting to try to tug and see if they are getting roots. Be sure you firm the soil around the cuttings well.
When you see new growth, and enough time has passed, you can dump the whole pot out and untangle the roots, and pot them up separately.

Post #7771578

Wow - ok ... I have never done it like that. Always put each cutting into its own separate container. Although I do strip the leaves and firm the soil and try to keep it moist. I will have to try that method with something else. Some of my salvias are so small because they were just planted last summer... but I hope they will shoot up quite a bit this summer and so maybe I will be able to root some things for fall.

Most of the Victoria Blue that I did yesterday had some tiny feeder roots on them already, and I am sure the Argentine Skies would be fine because they spread by roots so the spare little clumps I have should have their own roots... not sure at ALL about that Mellow Yellow. It doesn't even have leaf nodes close to the ground so I am not sure it will root at all that way!

Thanks for the info Sandra...

Marilyn - we cross posted. You gave me the Minnie Pearl and it is really pretty. I am loving it! I am sure I can get an Argentine Skies with roots already... there is a little clump that is separated from the main plant. It multiplies by sending out runners and sending up new clumps so I read... so surely it would live!! :)

I am not sure that I will get to come to KA. I would love to...but not sure I can swing it with all we have going on right then. Kyle will be at UCA that week before for Boy's State and will be coming home on Friday. Not sure yet if I have to take him, but there are 4 boys going from our school, and 2 from a nearby school that he knows so they may all ride up together. Then I think I will have to take him to Fayetteville for a camp on Sunday - but there again he may ride with someone else... I have a feeling I will be swamped doing laundry and helping unpack and pack again. ^_^ But the main reason that I am not sure is that will be the next to the last weekend that Clara is with us. I know the following weekend we will be having a birthday / going away party for her at our house... have considered having it on the 5th so that maybe we coud go one a really short trip to Memphis or Dallas or something that last weekend she is here. Had wanted to take her to San Antonio to SeaWorld because she loves Orcas and has never seen one in person - but since San Antonio is an 8 hr trip - and we have NO TIME, I can't see that happening. She also likes Pandas - and Memphis is about 4.5 hrs so that MIGHT be a possibility! LOL Then she had also wanted to see Dallas before she left ... don't know where all the time has gone since she arrived - we have stayed busy - just didn't get all the things done that she wanted to see!

Now the weekend I had scheduled off to see my sister has fallen through and I need to go to Chicago this weekend. I'll really miss seeing everyone and maybe can catch some of you at the next get-together.

I added a few extras to mine. I will try to explain these Iris. I have a picture of each of them.
The one I am calling a mini Iris is tall but the bloom is about 2 in by 4 in. It is a beautiful purple.

The one I say is a form of La iris has the form of a La Iris but is sometimes called purple flag. Really pretty. Not really sure what it is.

The yellow one is said to be invasive but it hasn't been for me. It is tall and vivid yellow. I do not know for sure this is what this is. Really stands out in a semishade garden. It can take water or be dry.

The Shasta Daisy is the tall one large blooms.

This is a picture of the 2 purple irises

Sandra and Terrye you both know you will be dearly missed. Who is going to be my bed partner now? Sandra I hope you begin to get better soon and that Jerry gets a great job. Maybe in Jackson Miss. LOL
Terrye I know you won't be missing us until after this weekend. All those wonderful greenhouses with your sister is hard to beat. Look for that red plant for Sandra up there. Have a grand time and brings some real goodies back with you.
Kathy Ann I have already told you you will be missed but I will say it again. YOU will be missed.

Jeri...we're planning to meet you at Doug Young's. I read that they open at 7 AM! We're staying in Oakdale, so it'll be out of the way to drive to the BK...and eat up valuable shopping time! I have your cell # and you have mine. As it gets closer to 10 AM, I'll call to make sure that's where you'e going first! We'll find you regardless. And I'll have my laptop too.

Mary, I dug one up and potted it. They're really like a weed here...every piece that touches the ground roots, and each bracket on a stem can root. It might not look so good at first, but you'll have a bed of it by July!

I just hope I have everything. I marked and separated stuff yesterday. We're ready to load the truck and boogey. Bruce said it would take us 8 hours to get there...if HE drives maybe...

Can't wait to see all of you and meet new folks!

And all those cactus I had to dig for Marilyn... WHEW!

Didn't quite get thru with everything last night or this morning - so I have to go back home briefly after work to get my things and head toward Cindy's! I am excited!

By the way, I did mange to make a Rocky Road cake last night for Jeri's. Had planned to bake pies, but found out I didn't have any pie shells... :(

Jeri - I haven't found anyone that has encores in stock that sells to the public yet... and one place I found said that when they did get them in stock, they would be 20.00 those of you with encores - are they worth that much more money??

Had to unload all the plants and take them into the room this afternoon. What a pain! And then I had to put Marilyn's Calidora EE in the tub for a drink. Perked right up, but now doesn't want to give up the shower...
I'm really worried about the plants tomorrow in the back of the truck. They made it this far fine, but it was overcast all the way from Austin. Don't want it to rain tomorrow, but would welcome some clouds...

We got home about half an hour ago. Scary trip only once...going from Lake Chas. to Lafeyette. Rain was coming down so hard, most of the cars were pulling onto the shoulder (including an 18 wheeler under an overpass).. I was driving and opted to stay on the hwy. I was afraid the next car would folllow me off the hwy and rear end us. Been there... It lasted about 15 minutes, but seemed like an hour...and no exits to get off on to. After that, it was smooth sailing.
Jeri, thanks so much for your hospitality. I'd never have known about those 92 nurseries up the hwy, either! I think Bruce even had a nice time, even tho he was pretty much outnubered...women, and plant nuts to boot. He's pretty exhausted now, slept most of the way home...except when he was driving (I hope)!
We unloaded all the plants into the garage...too tired to water them until tomorrow, but they look great. Our neighbor came over and teased me about buying so many plants, so I told him I only bought 3. He couldn't believe it!
We had an inch and a half of rain here...so that's pretty good.
I'll d-mail everyone I didn't already thank for plants. I'm overwhelmed. The first swap at your house 2 yrs ago, I didn't ask for many as I was the newby. I was thrilled with what I received. This time, since I lost so many things to the freeze, I asked for things that I figured would weather the winter. I can't wait to get planting! I always remember who gave me what, and I think that's the best part of trading.
Linda called me when we had stopped in Houston for gas. Said she had a door prize for me and gumbo mix. I really didn't need another thing! I intended the bougie to stay there. And I did already find the gumbo mix, so I'll be trying it out this week!
It was great to meet the "faces" of the folks I read and write to on this site. Everyone is soooo nice. Sorry we didn't stay, but I'm glad to get Mister home, so he can take care of himself a little better. He sounds terrible...
Take care and ya'll enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Where do I begin? I am exhausted but can't remember the last time I had so much fun!!!! We didn't find the plants or the prices that we were looking for at Forest Hill but I had already realized that in March when Mary & I went. The plants were much healthier than March but I really wasn't satisfied. Sandi, Bruce, my niece Mary and I hit around 5 nurseries and it was pretty much the same everywhere. Even though I didn't need ANYTHING or want anything...I managed to fill up the HHR!!! LOL!!! Linda, Smock & Becky did manage to find some good deals where they went. Cindy and Genna only hit DY but I don't even think they bought very much. Just visiting was great!

The RU was a GREAT success IMO even thought there were many beloved members missing!!!! You know who you were!!! LOL!!! I'm sorry to say that other than maybe Lisa there are not many pictures. It was entirely too fast pace. I blinked and it was 4:00 PM I wish I had had more time with each of you. Thank each of you for the wonderful hostess gifts. I felt like it was my BD without that ugly part of getting older!!! LOL!!! Thank you again!!!

I'll try to get pictures of my collection of goodies but it will probably be tomorrow.

Good morning! I am home safe and sound, FINALLY...arrived home about 12:30 pm so it was a LONG day - especially after staying up to 2:00 am talking the night before!

Thank you to everyone for all the great plants and great memories! I had such a blast... my body and I will pay for it for several days recovering, but it was well worth it! It was so great to see (almost) everyone again, but we sure missed not having everyone there!

A big thank you to Jeri for sharing her beautiful home with us - and such wonderful hospitality. Felt right at home! A big thanks to Cindy for letting us stay at her house to break up the trip, and for riding with me to help keep me awake. I had such a blast visiting with her to and from!! It was just a wonderful time all the way around, but I agree with Jeri - WAY too short!! :)

Well, I am trying to rush out the door to make it to church - missed SS already... hope everyone has a great day!

Johnny, Em's DH, Emily,Paul's back, Jeri, Genna, side view, Charlott's back. Genna is trying to hear over the pounding rain on Jeri's tin roof. The sound was deafning.

Charlott Cindy and I went to Clegg's nursery while everyone was waiting on the food and we thought we were going to have to spend the rest of the day stuck there. What a place to be though. We managed to fill Charlott's truck up while waiting. LOL

Did you guys get the plants I sent, how did that go , hope everything got to everybody that wanted something. I'm not sure if those poppies will survive or not, I sure hope they do, they just don't like to be transplanted at all.

We're back! We got back to my house a little after 5 pm. It was a beautiful day all the way back until we got about 30 miles from Little Rock and it started raining but by the time we got to my house it had stopped raining and we were able to unload Marilyn's plants and reload into her car with out getting wet! We were absolutely packed to the brim. Marilyn found a little potman at a nursery close to Jeri's and we were so packed full he had to ride on the floor under Marilyn's feet!!

Cindy thanks so much for inviting us to stay with you Thurs. night. It was such fun visiting with you and getting to see in person all the things you have been showing us. Can't wait to see what you do with all your new plants!

Jeri it was such fun!!!! What a wonderful hostess you are. It was also so good to get to see your gardens in person. The pictures are lovely but they just don't do it justice! Don't work too hard and try to get a little rest. Hopefully your procedure on the 27th will give you renewed vim and vigor - can't imagine what you will be like with more energy!!!

You guys all look great and I miss being with you so much, had Sandy left when you made the picture? I was looking for her to have on my pot hat, but know it looked better on me than her.

Love you all

Karen selecting her door prize, Linda's friend and Becky seated.

Yes Kathy Ann, I got the plants from you and the poppy looks pert so far. I think it likes all this rain. thanks so much for sending them but I had rather had you here in their place.

Sandra, We had a wonderful time but it wasn't the same without you, Ruth and Terrye. Jeri had a garden stake (which it didn't occur to me to take a photo of it) that read something like A queen gardens here and there was a bee in the top corner. It fit Ruth to a T.

I agree on the new thread!!!! Some of us have dialup b/c that is all that is offered in the Boonies. Yes there are Boonies in Tx, just like in LA. lol
There is a RU Forum that maybe someone could start a new thread on. Just a thought!

Will post pictures later of the stuff we bought at Forest Hill, Cleggats, and Paul Michael but here are a few pictures of my truck as we were getting ready to unload. We had plants stuffed in every nook and cranny and on top of each other. You can't see it very well, but the back of the cab is also stuffed with plants on the other side of the luggage and stuff stuck under the back seat as tight as we could get it! Marilyn's pot man is wrapped in the white towel on the passenger side on the floor.

There was a metal trellis that has already been taken out that was the length of the truck bed. We could only lock one side of the cover because something was keeping the right side from closing all the way down and we certainly couldn't unpack and start over!
