My computer is on and off today. Going to the computer doctor tomorrow, so I thought I'd get this started while I can.


Please list you offering with the number available first, then the name. As people request from your list, please add the person's name after the plant name and then reduce the reduced availability number.

Can make this one. Cannot get to MD the following week. Wedding.

Have Black Pussy Willow, some potted, some still rooting. Also have native Rose of Sharon. Potted 9 if anyone wants. Have MORE if anyone wants. Also have May Apple. I'll pot them if anyone wants them. Understand some nurseries actually sell that stuff. I have it all through the woods behind the house. Will pot a few lilac shoots. Did not split day lillies this year.

Wants: Roses are Red, I really would like to have a pink balloon flower if still available. And some nicotania. If anyone has some columbine, I'd also appreciate those. I'm also looking for some red twig dogwood and beautyberry, also some pachysandra - any amount. I hope the tomato lady witll be there again!! Thanks, Vicki & Larry

Holly Ann, I would love some white iris, chocolate mint and pink octupus.

I am still trying to tell the weeds from the perennials. It looks like most of my roses survived, but I need to cut back some minor winter die back. Amazing that they are doing so well after this winter. I focus on roses on their own roots that have done well for others in similar climates. It works for me so far. A gardening goal this year is learning to root roses. Rose lovers may like the fine gardening site. Paul Zimmerman has some good videos on pruning.

http://www.finegardening.com/blog/roses

I hope to find more fun things to share. Some of my indoor seeds are damping off, wintersown seeds are tiny, other seeds are still need to be sown. That is alright, I am a beginner. I have lots to learn.

For Damping Off you might want to check out the link below or google "damping off and hydrogen peroxide". For some reason this year I have come across a lot of threads on DG recommending the use of hydrogen peroxide. Maybe it will deter further problems for you!

http://www.gardengrapevine.com/DampingOff.html

According to that link:

"A dusting or misting of seeds or seedlings with Cinnamon Powder, cooled Chamomile Tea, a tincture made with crushed Garlic cloves, or a Hydrogen Peroxide solution may help. So may Thiram or Captan when used according to the package instructions.

A Hydrogen Peroxide solution may be made using the 3% drugstore product, by adding it to a gallon of stirred rain water as follows:

* 1 to 4 Tablespoons; for watering seedlings and potted plants.
* 3 to 6 Tablespoons; for watering outdoor plants.
* 5 to 8 Tablespoons; for dipping seeds or roots prior to planting or repotting.
* Full strength for cleaning tools and work areas."

Hope this helps! Jessica

Thanks for the links, Jessica.

I had been watering with dilute peroxide. I had sprinkled the surface with cinnamon as well. I started to spray with neems oil which seemed to help. I had been keeping the smaller seedlings in diy bottle "terrariums" like I use for winter sowing. I had sterilized the soil in the oven. Last year, I battled fungus gnats, so I thought containing the humidity may keep them down. It did, but now some seedlings damped off. I repotted the larger ones and put a small fan on the shelf. I need to add more lights. Luckily, it is getting warm enough to start getting things outside as long as I get them protected or back inside if it turns cold.

Live and Learn.

Cricket - I have seedlings from Callicarpa Issai? Would you like one? They're more than a year old but small - mostly because I've left them under the mother plant. Also, I would be interested in Black Pussywillow if there is any left? That might be fun to plant at the school.

RosesRRed, I would love Verbascum Southern Charm, Jacob Cline Monarda and pulmonaria.

gardadore, I would like one of each lunaria, (I planted a dark one last year, babied it thru the heat wave, but it hasn't come back, yet. ) I would also like a Campanula Glomerata and a Potentilla Helen Jane.

One gardening goal is adding perennials among the roses - especially spiky and airy ones. I am also experimenting with groundcovers. The places that I planted groundcovers last year have fewer weeds now.

Onewish, I would love a black beauty lily if you have a spare.

My lilies aren't ready to divide, but I have mixed, open pollinated seeds from two orienopet "tree" lilies - Robina and Nymph- if anyone wants some. I sowed some, shared some and still have some left.

I have major weeding to do today. It is nice to have two rain free days in a row to garden.

are we drawing straws on who gets the big, medium, and small bulbs?... hope I did good... that was the first time I ever dug a lily before.. the mass was huge... and I ended up breaking one stem off... had some tiny roots on the bottom but don't think it will live away from the bulb... but I stuck the broken bulb back in ... in hopes there will be a flower there next year... god knows there are enough scales down in there to grow a farm in 7 years..

I will be sorting them out tonight because I am putting some of them out for a sidewalk sale tomorrow AND taking some more to a flea market. Then I can post the varieties. Right now I'm not sure what I have because some of them had to be thrown away. They were as leggy as Betty Grable.

The stockiest ones I have were wintersown. They look like cute miniature trees. Got a lot of wintersown Super Beefsteak. (There's at least one variety.)

Check my reserved space later tonight for a list. (Okay, now that I promised I'll actually have to post it. Good motivation.)

Sorry, ladies. The SNAPDRAGONS bit the dust and are not able to be part of our swap. I'm sure you'll be able to find something else when you come. The PULMONARIA did not survive the splitting and potting. Maybe because they were flowering. We can try taking two more pieces and potting them up when you get here.

I am still getting ready for the swap, if you want me to reserve anything from my list for you. I am bringing some plants that no one requested yet. I am sure they will find good homes.

I feel like I am requesting more plants than I am bringing. I guess that will change as my plants mature and I have more interesting plants reseeding and needing division. I would like to request the following plants. If you are finished packing for tomorrow or they are no longer available, that is fine.

Last Minute Requests

Onewish - chocolate mint, variegated mint, coral honeysuckle cutting, and any begonia.

RosesAreRed - chianti pansy, munsted lavender, blue salvia

flowjen - I would love a chick from hen and chicks. If you want rocks, the Poconos is the place to find them! They call this area "the slate belt". I am not going to load garadaores car with rocks, but I can point out some good places to get them. I can't plant a rose without hitting at least one too heavy to lift. There are plenty in the dog run where I live. I have been gathering flat slates from there for my garden.

loretta - variegated mint. geranium samobor, Rosa glauca, a double ditch lily if it is orange, Epimedium x Rubrum, new dawn rose

nisiNJ - I would LOVE a tricolor sage and tomatoes - Goldman's Italian American, 2 Roma, Ramapo, Supersonic, 2 Superbeafsteak, and Tommy Toe. I will bring you some yellow marigold seeds. you can save them for next year if you get others this year.

wind- compost cherry tomato, perilla, swiss chard lights seed

HollyAnnS - comfrey, blue Agave houseplant and any begonia

I better start baking for tomorrow's food table...

You can give Gardenquilts one of the two you reserved for me.

FlowAjen and Onewish: Just went through all my tomatoes and can't find any more Jelly Bean. (Unfortunately I didn't set them aside when I said I would and someone must have taken them from the sidewalk sale table.) I have purchased a six pack of something called mojo grape and need only ONE... Will that be okay as a substitute?

Just a note...I don't have nearly as many tomato plants as the jungle I left behind last year (and escaped before anyone could say "no, take them home again!"). I will bring quite a few though; should be enough to go around. They run the gamut in appearance from older tall ones with yellowing bottom leaves to really short winter sown ones, and in between are some stocky dark green beauties I bought from a local greenhouse. (Those are the Ramapo and Supersonic.) Remember--they'll all be happy once they get their roots in the ground!

I have some other plants in their wintersown containers. Would it be all right if I brought them, plus some cups and labels and people can dig out what they want?

Thanks everyone for a wonderful day and for bringing so many wonderful selections. It was a true bounty and a real pleasure to just stand back and look at all the offerings. Happily I went home with only new acquisitions - thanks to all who took what I brought off my hands so I had room for the new! I have spent most of the day in between the misty showers deciding where to put things and weeding for new space. I don't know how people actually PLAN a bed. When I do it all grows together anyway or part dies out and I end of putting in new things as I get them and think they will work. So I have been checking out all the "spaces" available for the babies - such fun!!
As usual the great food and company made the day as well. Can't wait to check out the recipe page! Already looking forward to next year's Swap. Since I note you are all such avid "acquirers" I will be more aware of what I can divide and mark it for division for next year! It's certainly a wonderful way to make room for new things - this swap idea is fantastic!
Thanks to Teri for her herculean efforts including the tents and cleaning the garage for us! What a trooper! This is truly one of the special gardening events of the years for me! Looking forward to meeting you all again at another SWAP. Happy planting!!

The tiger lilies were in a coffee bag with labels near the pachysandra. (This is Lilium lactiforum var splendens if I spelled that right) I will have LOTS of bulbettes this summer. If you remind me, I will be sure that you get some. Mine originally came from a "rescued" plant sticking out under a pile of construction debris. It was the first lily in my garden! I moved some of its progeny near the hostas in the northern, shady garden under the black walnut trees. The old plants are thriving and dropped bulbettes growing. Like daylilies, tiger lilies seem to be juglone tolerant. I now call it my "tiger garden." I am adding orange and black plants there or as potted plants on the patio table - once I finally finish my potting tasks and repaint the table.

I had forgotten my small bag of seeds for the trade. RosesAreRed and Onewish wanted mixed Orienopet seeds from Nymph and Robina. I'll mail them.

I love growing things from seed. One of my favorite parts about gardening is learning about the different plants. I am curious about the orienopet seeds. Both parents are fragrant and gorgeous, it is worth a try.

The "parent" orienopet lilies are taller now than they were last year while blooming. They are living up to their name "tree lilies". Ironically, they were sent as a substitute for an out of stock plant. (I didn't know that I had to check a little box...whatever). They are a pleasant surprise. Most of my garden is gifts and surprises, but I enjoy it!

The columbine that I wintersowed from seed two years ago are blooming for the first time this year. This is the first time I saw a columbine bloom in person. I wanted to grow them because I liked the pictures of them in other gardens. I bought some seeds and got others from trades. I got MUCH better germination with the seeds from trades. I like to believe that this is because the seeds were gathered with love. (I also like to believe that chaff provides essential nutrients to sprouting seeds.)

Maybe I'll have columbine to share next swap. I have Black Barlow, William Guinness which is more purple than his parent/namesake, a pale pink , a Canadian red/yellow and a couple in bud. I love the little blooms.

We are all going to be planting in the rain this week. I think the plants will enjoy it more that I will. At least it won't be too hot.

I worked today and got such a laugh to see them selling pots of fiber optic grass for $8 each. I can't remember who gave me my pot. I remember talking about it just can't remember who.

do you bring that in for winter Holly?.. or is it hardy?.. the one thing I learned about columbine.. let them go to seed and self sow.. they are short lived.. I always made the mistake of deadheading ... no new babies

Thanks for the tip, onewish. I also read that they cross easily. I was wondering if I should deadhead them, or bag a few flowers to save seeds. I guess it will be best to let them reseed au natural.

Do you have a picture of the fiber-optic grass cat whisker planter? At the swap someone was mentioning that she had the grass as cat whiskers in a planter. Sounds fun!

Flowajen, that first pot looks like mukdenia (not from me). The third picture is Jasmine nudiflorum (from me). Not sure about the middle one.

GardenQuilts,

Look at this rose propagation method (which I intend to follow using the rooter pots that I could have done without.

Thanks so much Teri, Bob and everyone, it was a wonderful time. We brought the fiber optic grass. I took a clump inside to overwinter and divided it to share. I'll post a pic of our cat planter and grass ...just have to find it or take another picture lol...

At the end of our visit we received a small group of short cuttings wrapped in a damp paper towel - does anyone know what they might be? They perked up when we got them home and put them in water =)

The cuttings we got were really short, like 3" and were not pussy willow...it said 'no id' written in black marker on the paper towel wrapped around them. I'll take and post a photo, which may help

We didn't plant out the tomatoes yet, but will soon - thanks Nisi!

Hi! I still haven't had a chance to snap a pic of the no id cuttings or the cat planter. We did get Nisi's tomatoes in the ground and the tiger lilies from GardenQuilts too!!!

I got sidetracked picking up dead wood from our dying black walnut tree that we just had cut back. I also got our canna rhizomes planted that I'm sure are loving all the rain we've been getting lately.

I have a couple of plants that I have questions about. I thought that I had labels on everything, but, I didn't.

I got the tomatoes in and the mint in pots. I have two types of mint that I couldn't identify. They were different from the "chocolate" and "pineapple" mints which were labeled and they were not variegated. I call them mint because their leaves smell like mint.

I'll call this one "Mystery Mint #1"

Another view of "Mystery Mint 1". Winston the pug doesn't know what it is either. At least he has learned not to mark the flower pots.

However, he needs to stop tipping pots over with his leash. This poor unidentified plant got knocked down. No problem, I put it in a bigger pot after taking this photo. The leaves look like astilbe, maybe, any guesses? I'll call this plant 2.

Thank you roses! Monarda would explain why the plant had a minty scent but different leaves!

The hummingbirds will be happy. They are visiting the aquilegia and heuchera now.
