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'm in!
First name: Dianae/Diana daughter's name: Chelsea Janae

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

Husband's name is Tom, sons are Tommy, Jeff/Jeffrey

I have mostly sun, but there is some shade as well in my yard.

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:
Joyce
Sarah
Helen
Clarence
Vicki
Carol
Happy (for happgarden or variation)
Shortie
Bass
Sam
Slick
Hairy (my cat, any variation...LOL)
or
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...

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.

How is everyone? Raining here, which this time is ok...LOL we have had a really dry spell, and I actually planted a few things last night so the timing is perfect.

Lilies are starting to bloom and so are some of the daylilies...I bought some new daylilies and wish I had those in the ground for the rain...oh well. Seems like everything is blooming early which makes me wonder what I will have blooming in July? Better buy some annuals.

How are you guys doing finding named plants? I find lots of named plants just not the right name...LOL It is fun to hit the nurseries and look at the names, I have never done that before.

Hey Joyce .
I have not had much luck on my named Plants eight & Should be very easy for OUR DEAR ELFS , But I think she might like what Is in store for her:)

Its been sprinkling so far but looks as it is moving in later this afternoon . My Friend gave me a tree out of her yard that she had been growing from a seedling It so pretty I do hope I don't kill it . this rain should do it good .

My Friends These swaps have been fun but as you all know I will be going in for my gull bladder sergery the 18th
Doc says it is no big deal & My brother tells me Nothing to it . so I'm ready to get it done .
if its going to help .

anyway I have decided NOT To Do A July PLant swap But If there is anyone here that would like to open one that is fine . Please feel free to do so .

On the plant trading forum someone is looking for plants with family names...how funny, but this was someones suggestion.

Just go to plant files and in the cultivar box type in the persons name and you'll get a whole list of plants...duhhhh...rofl

I got the coolest plants last night after I got home, from a great partner!
I got:
Helen Mae (the mum)...LOL which she is, I have Helen (a mum not the same) but it is dark deep red...
Helen (the dianthus)
Christmas Carol ...rofl (daylily)
Happy Returns...for ME!

They are beautiful. More than I expected and just crack me up...They are wonderful!
I am going to have to do a "family" garden...just wonderful...you went to so much effort!

The pic was taken before sunrise so hopefully it looks ok. They are in wonderful shape!

Debbie, My heart aches for you losing your Mother. I'm so sorry. I lost mine 5 years ago, we were best friends too, so I know how you're feeling and am sending a big {{HUG}} Take care of yourself too.

You're too funny, happ. You know I'll love anything you send...Lily, Daylily, Fruit or a plant with Virginia in its name or a complete SuRpRiSe :) Ya know I'm not picky. This has to be a Lily you sent me last year since I didn't have any before then. Look how pretty it is, the bloom is about the size of my hand and it looks like somebody painted black streaks on the petals. It's waxy and doesn't look real... my DH is enchanted by it and that's saying a lot.

Susie,, I gots your back,,,lol I am a little ticked too, at me and others. I need to keep my BIG mouth shut sometimes.. I guess I was feeling a little guilty for not being able to send anything good for the other swap I am in,, however my DEAR Hubby has solved that for me and reminded me that sometimes I stress toooo much!! I will be very late sending out my swap buddy's gifts. I am having some problems here. My Dad is in total Renal Failure and is not a transplant canidate. He has been sick for a very long time,, but seems it is much worse in the last couple of months and both my mom and husband want me to go before he passes. I have not been there in 3 years. Also Ralphs truck needed some unexpected repairs so money is horribly tight for the next 2 weeks and then I will be gone for a week. Soo my swap buddy will not be getting her stuff until July15th or so. I am very sorry and wish I could do better, but it is what it is.

The plant I got from my partner Christmas Carol, just cracks me up. My family is all about Christmas, we don't do birthdays except for the little kids and my Mom but we do Christmas! So Christmas Carol is just perfect. Everything is doing well. Thanks again for the wonderful stuff.

Suzie I have talked to Kulygirl and we have agreed for me to send when I get back. Long story, but we are both ok with this. I am not leaving until the 6th or 7th of July. We used up every spare dime to pay for this and Ralphs truck repairs. If I can squeeze any more money out of the budget I will certainly be mailing out before then. But She has told me not to worry and believe me she will be pleased with what I send after her waiting sooo long.
Thanks

Happ, I'm so glad you like everything! It's was so much fun! I thought I might be stretching it a little with "Christmas" Carol, lol.

Elf & I have talked and I told her not to stress, life happens. :)

kurlygirl, you nailed it...LOL I have your mum on one side of the concrete toad my Mom gave me and my mum on the other side and dianthus in front (it is on a raised bed and it is on the slope part). Love them. Love everything. I just cracked up today while I was planting them. Can't wait for them to come over so I can show them.

DeeJay what pretty poppies, made me think I use to have one of those and I haven't seen it...uhmmmm? Gonna have to check and see if I missed it.

It has been so awful humid here, went out tonight to move a pot on the porch and could barely breath! Horrible, thank goodness for air conditioning.
