OK WANTED TO GIVE YOU ALL TIME TO THINK ON THIS YOU HAVE TILL MAY 31st TO DECIDE :))))
Anyone who would like a plant named after them or a family member we will do our best to share with you :)
RULES : FIND ONE PLANT THAT MATCHES YOUR PARTNERS NAME OR THEIR USERSNAME
OR IF THEY HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER THEY WOULD LIKE TO FIND FOR .
JUST BE REALISTIC OK & KNOW THAT SOME NAMES CANNOT BE MATCHED SO KEEP THE NAMES
COMMON . PICK 3 FOR YOUR PARTNER TO CHOOSE FROM .
LIST THEM WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR THIS . Also you might want to let your partner Know if you want or need shade or full sun plants .
AS FOR SHARING OTHER PLANTS THAT IS UP TO YOU AS TO HOW MANY WE USUALLY SEND AT LEASE 5
BUT WE KNOW SOME IT IS HARD TO DO .
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PLANT IN YOUR GARDEN WITH YOUR PARTNERS NAME THEN HOW ABOUT TAKE THE
$10-20. IT MIGHT COST TO DIG & SEND THE PLANT , & ORDER THEM FROM A COMPANY WHO HAS THE PLANT
& LET THEM SEND IT :)))) just an Idea .
If the plant is $10-$12 that will be considered a good gift just because it is named after them so don't feel you have to buy more if you cannot .
sign up till MAY 31st
Mailing out date is By : JUNE 21st
I'm open for any other IDEAS You All Might have .

I would love something with my daughter's name, the spelling of mine is weird but anything Diana would work just fine!

WOW what name droppers :)) So Cool :))) Just REMEMBER
Your Partner only has to DO ONE PLANT WITH A NAME ON Your List any others will be a bonus :)
I will edit & Put my list in the players box for I had company come before i could get back in here :)))
have a great evening I have much to get caught up on .
My list is fairly small since it's just hubby and I, no kids, and my parents and sis are deceased.
My name is Susan and of course I'm growing Rudbeckia "Black-Eyed Susan's" and also have a "Black-Eye Susan" Daylily. If you go by my DG name, a Fruit or a Vine would be welcomed but please no invasive like Chinese Wisteria, Honeysuckle or Cypress.
Family and Friend's names could include:
Virginia (the only one I have is Virginia Bluebells), Lily, Pam, Georgia, Mary, Bertha, Elizabeth, Kate, Bell, Janet, Dolly, Helen, Denise, Peggy, Gail and Doris.
Or it could be a twist on your own name.
Thanks, Susie. This is going to be fun!
Edited to say the majority of my gardens are in Full Sun and I live in Zone 7a.

Hi all. The idea about named plants came to me when sweet deejay sent me a plant named Joyce (something or the other,I forgot the rest, just glad I could remember Joyce) never had a plant with my name on it...LOL so I thought that was sort of neat.
I did buy (about 5 times until I got it to survive a winter) a mum named Helen (my Mothers name) but that is the only "named" plant I have besides my new pride and joy "Joyce (something or the other)"...LOL
Names to pick from:
Happy (for happgarden or variation)
Hairy (my cat, any variation...LOL)
one from my swap buddy with their name..... ;D
I did buy an iris with the name "Kansas City" I thought that was kind of personal....
Oh yeah deejay I am in.....
Happy You Made Joyce & The plant was Joyce terry I Believe . as I Told MILL I'm Not sure how at this time the partners will be picked But I Will tell you this I Love Twist & Turns In A swap as you all know by now or many of you do :)
IT WILL BE FUN & EASY :)) Just KEEP WATCH ON THE 30th :))))

Thought i would give this a BUMP UP So we don't get lost :)) Been working in the gardens .
Now that we have started this I have noticed lots of plants with names of folks on them.....can't wait to get my buddies name so I can start .....
I Love to watch them swim Mom Won't let them in the big pool that is hers & they know this somehow :)
What a day 84* But I Got Allot done today :) Now I'm Waiting for the sun to go down a bit so i can water for the night.
& I want to try planting a few seeds to see if they will grow.
Ok I Was bad & When I rec'd some Daylilies last year from one of our swaps & Forgot to mark who I rec'd from .
if you might have sent them Please let me know so i can mark them .
they are lady neva ,wind frills, miss jessie , parade of peacocks ????
well going to go read a few more forums :)
Wasn't me deejay, but they sound lovely.
I planted all day, just took a bath, going to get pizza, and get ready for the final episode of LOST! Everyone has been warned to stay away...rofl.
Cloudy all day but very warm, humid, and windy.
Got lilies planted, picked strawberries, planted dahlia's, moved roses, pulled weeds, planted daisys, started a new flower bed, scared a snake(LOL), made big messes, and sort of cleaned them up and I can surely feel it.
That final episode of Lost was excellent! I was ecstatic to see them all reunited!
Deejay, love those little ducklings! My chickens are getting big. They will move into their big pen next week (after I get it finished)!
Temps here are in low 90's with lots of humidity to go with it! I'm so glad I have shade at my new home. It's a lot easier for me to work in the yard now.
Julie, I couldn't decide on Lost ending. I was glad everyone was reunited and happy, but I guess I thought that was too predictable..... Did you realize Ben didn't go with them......drum roll....LOL So he isn't dead or ........... LOL
DH wanted chickens, but I know he would end up making pets out of them, and he doesn't eat eggs, so I don't know why we would want chickens. Wouldn't mind having a duck to eat bugs. Don't want chickens scratching in the garden.
Yes, I noticed Ben stayed outside. I came to the same conclusion- he must not be dead. So, do you think they will do like some other TV shows and make a movie in a couple of years? I just don't see this as the end of it!
My 6-week-old roosters were fighting this morning! Gotta get rid of the extra ones. I'll put a sign up at the feed store this weekend. I wanted them for the eggs.
Julie, he is either not dead or dead and not ready to go to the light. Think he told him I am not ready yet........
Them little rooster sound pretty territorial!
I edited my post to include my children's full names. Thanks, julie
