I've talked with a few of the local ladies about dates, and we've decided June 5th , the first saturday in June would be a good time to come out and visit the gardens, eat, visit and have fun for the day.

This is an open invitation to those who want to come and visit.

No particular arrival time yet.

and no menu yet either. What should we eat? who'd be willing to help bring a couple things food wise.

The gardens should be in full bloom the last week in may and first part of June. I hope to hav ethem in tip top shape by then, and I suppose I will clean the house too. ;0)



Who's coming:
Marilyn
Charlotte
Kim
Loretta
Crissy
Debra I think Debra isn't going to be able to make it. we'll leave her here just in case ;0)
Me plus ( a few local friends)
Karen
Janie
terrye
Sheila

When you know for sure your coming, I'll add your name .

Food:

Me: ham & cheese mini sandwhiches, veggie tray , fruit tray, Sweet tea, lemonade, Ihave all the paper products already.
Marilyn, Grape salad
Charlotte: Dessert of some kind
Kim: BBQ hot dogs.

Everybody's trade list

Don't worry about cleaning the house, KA! We'll be there to look at your gardens--not your house! LOL Since you were my co-hostess at our luncheon in February, it is only fair that I should return the favor and be your helper this time around. Just let me know what you want me to bring--or maybe I can come up with something. Charlotte's grape salad is always a big hit--I can bring that and some blueberry muffins, if you like.

I love that grape salad, I will give it some thought today at work as to what I will make.

perhaps those little sandwhiches, but with ham instead of pork loin. Amber will be home and she likes to bake, I'll talk her into baking something LOL or perhaps giving me some ideas on what to make.

I got to clean house a little, Danny's looking forward to the clean house. ;0)

Oh man!! I want to come to yours too KA!! I don't know if I'll be able to though, I'll be at my mom's the weekend before, wonder if I can talk Dave into Jeri's, my mom's, and your house! Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!!! I'm going to see what I can do... Dave's not real crazy about Louisiana because we're on such a budget we really don't want to spend the money on a hotel room. Also Dave's going to want to stop and spend the night in Shreveport, which isn't good for the budget either... I'll talk to him tonight.

Well... I will have to do some checking on this one! I think I have to pick Kyle up from Boy's state at UCA on the 4th, and then have him back in Fayetteville on the 6th for a different camp... not sure if I am up to that much driving. The 5th is also my anniversary - but it sure seems like there is SOMETHING else going on that day too... I need a PDA or a smart phone to help me keep up with everything! Sure hope I can make it. IF i can, I will be happy to bring whatever food you need, although a dessert is easier to deal with from this distance!

Marilyn can you dmail me that recipe for the grape salad, that's dessert tonight.

I'm going to make those ham/cheese sandwhiches on little buns and a fruit tray and veggie tray so far, charlotte if you want to bring a dessert that would be wonderful, Marilyn's bringing the grape salad.

I'm going to think out loud and see if anyone can come up with a scheme, of sorts...
Yours is just a one day thing because you're close. If I tell Dave I'm going to give some of these extra plants away he won't balk, however...
He knows about Jeri's and wants to go but he's unsure about the cost since he's out of work, and it would be at minimum a 2 dayer. He also doesn't want me to go by myself because it's such a long distance if he finds a job between now and then. I have to go see my mom in OKC the last weekend of May, can't do anything about that. If I tell Dave about your shindig he won't want to go to Jeri's at all. If I don't tell him and we end up going to Jeri's, then I'll go to my moms, then tell him I want to go to yours he'll balk about the miles I am putting on my car and the cost of gas. I don't know what to do.

KA, I'm coming to yours unless the weather gets bad. There! I've made a decision. Let me know what I should bring!

Sounds like alot of fun to me too. If all goes well... I should be coming this year. I do have a grandson's birthday on that day - but not sure what they are gonna be doing this year. Are we gonna do a plant swap, or just come with plants maybe ? If so, I will need to get to digging. And if I do get to come -- KA - I will check with you on what you want me to bring in the line of food, etc. Have to see how all goes with Jim on his chemo, so hopefully he and Kenny may could come with me. But regardless... I am forsure gonna do my darndest to come this year, since I didn't get to come to the last one KA had.

Golly, y'all are making a lot of work for an old lady! LOL I may beg off on the plant trading but I will definitely be there with the grape salad. Sorry I didn't get back to you on the recipe, Kathy Ann. For some reason, DG's page wouldn't load for me this afternoon--don't know what is up with that! My 9 yr. old grandson, Zachary, will be 10 on June 2nd and I am sure his mother will have his birthday party on that Saturday but it will be for his friends so I don't think he will miss me if I am not there. She might have a sleep-over for him on Friday night, though, and invite a few of his friends. I can always just take his present by there and drop it off. When they get to be 10, it is not imperative for grandma to be at the party with their friends--just as long as they get a gift! LOL

Door prizes are always fun. I have my "welcome" frog door prize hanging at the entrance to my new shade garden. Are you putting a dollar limit on the door prizes, Kathy Ann?

Bonnie, it would be great if you and Kenny and Jim can make it to Kathy Ann's!

Sounds like fun. Depending on how things are going with Jim we want get in till late that Saturday from vacation, otherwise we would ride over. If Bonnie can make it we will however send plants with her. Since he is not able to lift anything yet I have been trying to spend a few hours each evening down there setting stuff out, but seem to be making little progress. Giving it away right now sounds really good. LOL

I like the way Jeri did that but I don't know how she did it. feel free to do it which ever way is most convenient. we can do it here if you want to.

with Jeri's around the corner and so much other things going on , we may not be trading much LOL Like marilyn said, she's pretty much traded out . I'm goin g to dig up some more poppies and root a few things I know will take root before the gathering.

My DD is moving back home, sometime today I have to go see if I can help her. I'm really glad she's moving back home. I've missed seeing her pretty face around here.

I saw a big folding table in the dressing room at work, I may ask my boss if I can borrow it for the gathering. that will give us two large tables to put plants on, and I have a fold out table for door prizes.

If this turns into a large gathering, I might ask a couple folks to bring a fold out card table if they have one.

Kathy Ann, is this the yarrow you are calling Cherise Queen? I couldn't find it under your spelling but this is what came up in plant files:
http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/48883/

It looks to be the same color as the Oertel's Rose.

cerise queen
http://www.smgrowers.com/products/plants/plantdisplay.asp?plant_id=27

mine are a little different, my ortel's rose doesn't get as tall as cerise queen, a nd cerise queen takes over,

I lost my main plant of the richard nelson, it's a darker pink, but I see it came up in another part of the gardens,

Cerise queen is the proper spelling, and it is one of those that likes to take over.

I'll take whatever iris you have that nobody else asks for, Kathy Ann. None of my EE's came back in the front heart-shaped bed so I have room for some more plants. and iris will do well there. If you don't have enough to go around, give them to others. I can always get some from you at a later date.

Chrissy, does Diana know for sure that her EE's have made it through the winter. I would think hers would have come back by now since you all are further south.

Kathy Ann, my Big Dipper is making lots of pups--that thing certainly knows how to reproduce! LOL I will be more than happy to share some with you. It won't matter to me if it doesn't come back for you. I'll have more next year, I am sure. My Illustris hasn't come back and neither have the two "just plain" EE's that I had in the ground. I have looked every day and there is still no sign of Illustris, although it did come back for me last season.

My EEs that were in storage have all came back, except for the Lime Zinger, most of them never died out, I'm guessing because the garage never got below 40*. We went out and looked yesterday, there are a couple that are coming back, her Giant is and another one is, no sign of the Black Magic yet or other miscellaneous ones. Around the corner someone has a huge EE plant that was planted over 3 years ago I know, it's not coming back yet either. My brugs aren't coming back yet. Hang on just a little longer, I'd say that if you don't have some ears by the time KA has her gathering, you're not going to get any. I bet they will come back though. I need to find a place to put mine, I really don't have any good place for them :-(

Kim, remember I asked you about that Canadian Goose? Well, there are now two adults and I think Diana counted 8 chicks!!!

Christine I'm not sure when you planted your pansy seed but pansies are a winter plant. I always plant mine in the late fall (I buy plants have never tried seed). They bloom some during the winter and then really do great in the very early spring. It is now about time to pull them up. They only last one season and the hot weather will kill them. They like cold weather.

I had some huge just plain elephant ears last year and I see just a couple of little tiny pups up now. I had taken some out to Wildwood and just a couple of small pups are poking up there also. My Pineapple Princess I got from Kenny is coming up. I have a variegated one I kept in the pot in the garbage and of course it is ok. I planted my lime zinger from Kenny in the ground and haven't seen any sign of it. I really like that one so I bought a fairly big one at Rita's.

Christine, my Black magic isn't up yet either. It comes up a little later than the others but this winter really did a number on a lot of the EEs. My Black Stem and Red Stem are barely showing now and only in one clump that was more protected. I lost most of the ones I wintered over.

KA, maybe we'll get to come but I won't know until later. I hope so. I'd love to see your gardens again, especially since you've added so much more since I've been there.

Count me in! I'll bring snakes ... I mean, snacks. How about a veggie/cheese/dip tray? Just let me know what you need and I'll bring it.

I have tons of plants to give away but don't want anything in exchange. Seriously, I'm desperately trying to get rid of plants as we clear the beds. We are clearing near the house to try to reduce the # of snakes and redesigning several areas. If anyone would like to come now or anytime before we go to Kathy's and help yourself - you are welcome to come. Please! Not sure how much I can load up and transport. Some are shrubs, etc to transplant. Will list when I figure out where to do it.

Where are the trade lists? Are we starting individual threads for those?

you'll have a link too as soon as yo upost a trade list.

BTW Bonnie's not going to get to come WE will miss having her.

Terrye & Sandra, are considering so we hope we can twist their arm into coming.

They can stay the night if they need to and go back home the next day!! maybe that will coax them LOL

I'm not sure we'll need any more food so far there's not many folks coming. I think we'll have lots

My trade list:

HAVE
These are all established plants/shrubs - not seedlings or cuttings unless stated otherwise and I would love for anyone to come get these now if you are able instead of waiting for the RU. I have several of most plants or they are large enough to divide. You are welcome to come out with your boxes, bags and pots and look around to see if there is anything you would like. One at a time or in groups - doesn't matter - just please come get these plants so I don't have to throw them away. I'll provide shovels and David will help if he is here.

hydrangea - Lady in Red
hydrangea - Endless Summer
ajuga - bronze beauty
crepe myrtles - pink, purple, maybe white
barberry - crimson queen?
lorpedlum (chinese fringe) - plum delight (depending on designer's suggestions)
clematis - pink and purple
beauty berry
misc ferns
hostas
daylilies - NOID yellow and orange
blackberry lily
Nepeta Walkers Low
purple asters
obedient plant
solomans sword
helleri holly
canna - NOID red
purple pincushion plant (can't recall name)
liriope
misc iris rhizomes (dug last fall but should do fine once planted)

WOULD LIKE:
I'm seriously trying to remove many plants to reduce our snake population. A landscape designer will be presenting plans for most areas later so I'm not replanting yet and don't need plants in exchange. I don't need ANYTHING in exchange but would not refuse any extras you may have of soaps, bird houses, wind chimes, birdbaths, etc. :)

Will update later.

If anyone is interested in coming as a group and having helpers here to dig for you, let me know and I'll make the arrangements. It needs to be soon though. These beds need to be readied for the new design/clean up project. Anyone interested in this coming weekend? I could probably arrange something then.

I really don't need anything since I have broken the bank and the planting arm this spring - HOWEVER, I am going to be redoing a bed at my daughters house in NWA in a few weeks and I am looking for easy care plants in mostly red and purple - her siding on her house is yellow so I'm staying away from that color. This is a west facing bed so it'll have LOTS of afternoon sun. I have some red daylilies and a couple of purple salvias but if you guys have some suggestions I'm open to them. She isn't a flower person (yet) so I don't want anything to labor intensive or it'll for sure DIE!!

Karen, the catmint grows in a circular shape and has gotten larger since it was planted a couple of years ago but is not invasive. It doesn't have anything around it to keep it contained and it hasn't gone anywhere! I should be around Sat and Sun afternoon. Let me know when you want to come and I'll plan to be here. Will be easier to catch than last time, I promise!

Crissy, the clematis needs to be tied to a support. It won't climb on it's own. It can be tied straight up a narrow pole, along a long fence, or over an arbor. I've also seen it allowed to grow on the ground around the base of a tree like a ground cover. I'm whacking the vines back this weekend and will have large root balls that can be divided.

Debra, I could have sworn I posted a note here last night that Janie and I wouldn't be able to make it this afternoon. I have no idea where that post went to. I MAY be able to come tomorrow afternoon - but I'll have to see since I have the three grandkids tonight. I might be just too worn out by tomorrow:) I'll for sure call before I come out so don't change plans on my account.

Bonnie's not coming, I forgot to remove her list. I use to have some parasol trees, but the ones I didn't get put into the ground that I kept in pots , died on me . I don't know how long it takes for them to make flowers and drop seeds, I have one tree almost as tall as me now. and I just got it from bonnie last year.

if it ever drops seeds and makes babies, i'll be giving away a ton also LOL

I have one plant for you, Charlotte, from Jeri's RU which got mixed in with my stuff.
I also have 2 or 3 plants for you, Kathy Ann, that people sent you. One is the Henry Duelberg salvia from Sandi. I can't remember what the other ones are right now. I have been outside all morning and my mind and my body are tired! LOL Also, Becky gave me a white salvia which she thinks might be an Augusta Duelberg salvia but she isn't sure. Anyway, it was pretty big and when I planted it today I discovered that there were two smaller sections in the pot with the bigger plant. I divided them and I have one to bring you, KA, and an extra for someone else--whoever asks first.


I'm sorry Bonnie won't be able to make it to your house, KA. Is Terrye coming or does she know yet? I have a "Gentle Giant daffodil bulb for both her and Crissy.

By the way, Kathy Ann, my red and yellow milkweeds are blooming--didn't notice the orange ones blooming yet. Also, the Copper King and the Fantasia hardy hibiscus you gave me last fall are both alive and about 4 to 5 inches tall. :o)) I also have an echinacea blooming that I thought I had lost. I don't know if it is Tomato Soup or what but it is orangey red but not the same as Tiki Torch which is also an orangey red.

WE had about 3 days of rain this past week, and we're about to go through some storms again tonight and all day tomorrow. I don't know how much more torture my gardens can take, I dug up a sedum yesterday and cut off the rotted part and repotted it . and I've lost a dahlia also they rot right where they come out of the ground at, and I noticed my humunous black knight buddleia was wilted yeserday but not today , if we get another rain like we have, I may have some trouble with it, I Hope not cause it's full of blooms.

Rain is good but too much is reeking havock on my plants.

And then the weeds grow back LOL




and I won't have any diet drinks to offer so if your into diet drinks. you might want to bring some,
I think I have enough lawn chairs . but one or two more wouldn't hurt.

I am no good at planning games.
I also haven't had time to plan any.

if someone wants to come up with one or two, I'll supply the gifts LOL I won't tell ya'll what they will be;0) (let me know if you want to plan a couple games for the group)
which reminds me I still have to pick up my door prize.

You'll want to bring a door prize sheila, we're doing door prizes .

LOL KA! if we do play games and I win one of them, I want either the lemongrass or the lavender in that new product you have made. Hint, hint. LOL
Your new echies are beautiful! I went to the link you posted. I will have to go out and measure the bloom on what I think is Tomato Soup. I don't know if it is 5 inches across or not but maybe the next bloom will be. They get bigger after they open up--at least the bloom on my Tiki torch did. Is that Maltese Cross an allium?

Sheila, it's good to hear from you. I'm so glad you will be coming to KA's house on June 5th. The red dragon persicaria you gave me in 2008 is huge. I really like the color of the leaves and the bees and butterflies just love those tiny white blooms. Same for the Joe Pye Weed. :o))


I am adding the following to my trade list:
5 torch lilies (these are small)
6 clerodendrum bungeii ( I have 4 in one pot and 2 in another pot. they can be separated when we get to KA's.)

I've been buying milk and butter from this lady down the road who has a couple of jersey cows, she sells the butter for 3.00 a pound if anybody wants any of it, it's frozen when she sells it.

Let me know I'll pick some up for you. It tastes pretty good. I don't believe she puts salt in it either which is how I like it.

Milk is fabulous. I'm glad to have found someone who has fresh milk and it tastes good. I do have to take the cream off it before anybody will drink it.

Crissy ain't it the truth that we are all best at chatting too bad that isn't a party game. I'm good with games but I did the powerpoint last time and NO ONE wants to hear me chattering on again so we need to look for someone else.

I worked myself into complete exhaustion today. Stayed home from Pellaland to get some outside things done. I believe I have mentioned the bazillion pots on the back deck to be planted. First I had to go into town to run an errand which put me right in the path of Lowe's in Bryant. Of course I couldn't pass by without checking out their clearance. I was so proud of myself standing there at the clearance rack and seeing NOTHING I wanted when some lady pushed over one of those big silver carts filled with stuff and said "everything on here is a quarter" WHAT!!! Now you know I brought home a whole new slew of stuff. I got two different ground covers in a six pack for a quarter - the pack was regular $10.00. So as if I didn't have enough to do outside there was some more. Plus they had their hibiscus (not the hardy kind) for $1.00 each. I only spent 8 dollars but add that up and you'll see that my car was full AGAIN!! I can't remember right now what I even bought:(

When I got home I put down two truckloads of mulch after wetting and putting down cardboard in two of the beds. Of course I had to weed as I went but still it wasn't too bad. Then I potted up 4 containers with stuff and then I tried to sort stuff - 1 stack of stuff to plant at my daughters in mid-June, 1 stack to go to the swap - I had to pot all this stuff up - maybe tomorrow or Friday I'll get a list of stuff to swap on here. Then I cleaned the deck up so we can actually use it to sit on. Threw away a bunch of old stuff - planted about 30 plants - then cleaned off the bottom deck as well. WHEW!!! what a busy day!! Finally I tarped the dump truck load of dirt DH had delivered this morning for leveling a spot for the pool. I wish it had been up today cause I sure could have used it:)

The worst thing is I'll need at least two more truckloads of mulch to finish the job and I am already tired of mulching. Well off I go for a whirlpool bath and some tylenol - maybe I'll sneak one of DH's 800 mg ibuprofen's to help me sleep.

It was crazy and apparently the vendors are the ones they decide what is clearanced and for how much - the lady at the checkout just said okay when I told her what the lady said. Maybe Wednesday around 10:00 is the time to go there because there were a lot of people there who had on vest that said vendor and they were going thru everything they had. I seriously NEED to STOP buying plants - but it doesn't seem likely:(

Well, I found the list of echinaceas I ordered from fairy's co-op last year and my mystery coneflower has to be either Tomato Soup or Sundown. The information which I googled said that tomato soup is a red coneflower and mine is more the color of tomato soup when you put milk in it. So the mystery still is not totally solved but for now I am calling mine Tomato Soup until I can see a Sundown "close-up and personal".

I am going to glue my pot man to my ladder with it. Charlotte said if I ever wanted to move the pot man that I could always pry up the glue.

Genna: does your tag say that you have Tomato Soup? Maybe they got the wrong tag with it.

Now I really do have to go and run those errands. :o))

Yep, my tag says tomato soup... but I dont' think that is what I have. It will probably be tomorrow before I can attempt to get a pic. We have sports banquet tonight and I am to be there as soon as possible after work. Porbably won't be home until at least 9:30!

Sometimes things just get mislabeled, sometimes the soil makes a difference in the color too.

I guess you all have noticed that I have not committed to come yet, I was talking to Crissy this morning and I told her I will have to wait until that week to decide. My back is no better. If I watch what I do it acts pretty well, yesterday and today has been pretty rough days with the weather front coming through, not only with the back, but my neck has been giving me a lot of trouble too.
Terrye, if you go, I sure WANT to go--but will have to wait until that week to make the decision.

I think that if it was labeled wrong, it must have been at terra nova - or wherever she got the plugs from. I will take a pic when I can and maybe ya'll will know what I have. I was supposed to have two Tomato Soups but I am pretty sure I lost the other one - will have to double check.

Kathy Ann, I would like one of your dwarf Fireball monardas, please if you have any left. Also, please feel free to take my name off any iris you were going to give me. I really don't have any place to put them since I brought some home from Jeri's RU. Maybe this fall I will have a new iris bed and I can get some from you at that time.

Oh I see now, your still on the list for getting iris, Kim's plants were stil there too but I brought hers also,

I took those iris off. added the monarda and I wanted to tell you that under neath the mother bush of the royal red buddleia was a new bush coming up. I dug it and potted it in a gallon pot, it's really nice sized, and it's looking great after that rain we had yesterday , no longer wilting. it's got your name on it and I forgot to give you a black knight buddleia when I came down there so I'm going to go add that to your want list. cause I had one left and you said you wanted it.



I got some more poppies about to open, I've been out there twice today to see if they opened, but I realize it's like watching a pot of water boil, it will never happen if you keep watching them LOL

I don't have back trouble but Buddy did and I know just from observing him how difficult it is to get comfortable at times. He would sit with the heating pad on his back for hours, literally. I think he used it so much that he burned the nerve endings or something! Some days he just couldn't get comfortable and like Sandra said, it is like being a wiggle worm in hot ashes!

I have been at the MG state meeting in Magnolia...I did not bring home as much as I did with KA (either outing lol). I think, 3 ferns, 1 coleous, 1 euphorbia, 1 azalea, 2 pink dwarf balloon flowers and 1--oh I don't know what they are called, ya know, the little plants that really don't need water, are like parasitic plants (latch on to a tree and live there), anyway, I got of of those inside a terre cotta duck ;o) I won a metal heart planter at the silent auction. Plus, found a very nice wood duck Christmas ornament. Ate enough for 3 people and saw some lovely houses and gardens. I will tell y'all the story later, but I also saw Zebras, Camels, Buffalo, Alpacas, Goats, Ducks and ducklings...nope I did not go to a zoo! lol

Okay, let me see if I can catch up...

Marilyn, did you want the illustris?

Karen, I would like stonecrop and irish moss, if you still have some available. I have you down for 2 EEs. Will pot them tomorrow.

Oh, her trade list is still up in the first post. I thought it was Marsue who wasn't coming. How far does Debra live from you?

Kim, I got you down for the yellow iris. Are you sure you don't want some peach and purple ones too?

Oh, I have some pale blue ones also that are pretty, but not showy enough for me. And I added more things to my trade list. I'll add more after I do an inventory of my gardens.

Chips and cheese dip OR
fruit and my blender and make y'all some fruit smoothies loaded with antioxidants OR
a banana split pie (with sugar free pudding and lots of fruit and banana split toppings)

What do y'all prefer?

NA, I love your banana split pie...but we seem to have lots of fruit already, so maybe chip and dip? Also, at the moment, I am out of yellow splash. I do have several that are still green without splashing. Do you want one of those and hope it splashes? If not, I will keep an eye out for one that is splashing.

I'm still updating my trade list as I see more in the garden. So y'all keep checking back and see what else I have. Kim, I hope you can find something else you want from me.

Do y'all mind if I wrap the roots of my plants instead of potting them? I'm running low on pots (and could use any that you can spare). I'm redesigning my entire yard and have to dig up just about every plant in the process--at least entire sections at once, which means 100's of plants. If you need your pots from the plants you're giving me, you're welcome to just wrap their roots too and keep your pots.

Nancy I'll take:
1 spearmint,
1 Million Tomato,
1 Datura
Stonecrop Sedum
1 each Peach, Dark Purple, and Pale Blue bearded Iris

I'm voting for either the smoothies or the banana split pie.

Maybe I'll bring a bs pie in addition to the chips and dip then. They really are awesome! I'll bring a small one and you and I can eat it. We won't have to share with Kim. Like little piggies at the trough, we'll just nudge her out. LOL

No worries, I have enough plants that I have still not planted, so I really do not want or need anything. However, I will take both of the spanish moss if no one else declares it.

Kim, do you have any of the "Tiara" hostas--the little miniature ones? I've got one or two I could bring you a start of but I'm not sure their tags are still there. Maybe they are. Just about all my hostas died in a drought and I pulled most of the tags out. Then the next summer, a few of them came back up! I had several different Tiaras, but only two or three are left. Need a start?

Marsue, the spiderworts aren't too invasive for me. The common blue ones re-seed, so they tend to pop up several feet from where they were originally, but they're easy to dig up and they don't reseed abundantly.

The hot pink that I have is a shorter spiderwort. It does tend to ramble a big, but it's easy to control.

We crossed, Charlotte. I have the pachysandra you gave me and the toad lilies plus some ajuga that Kathy Ann gave me, and if those three plants don't take over my shade bed, then I might try the spiderwort at some time in the future. LOL

My clerodendrons get quite a bit of shade. Some has even travelled UNDER my porch and comes up between the porch and the house and blooms! The blooms smell soooo good, so put them where you can sniff them. The foliage stinks though, so don't go sniffing until it blooms. The sweetly scented blooms will overpower the stinky foliage.
