WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE A WAY OF ADDING MORE NEW PLANTS TO YOUR GARDENS FOR JUST THE COST OF POSTAGE :)
POSTAGE IS WHAT IT COST YOU TO SEND TO ANOTHER GARDEN FRIEND ; HOW COOL IS THAT .

EACH MONTH WE WILL SHARE 5-6 NICE SIZE PLANTS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO FIND IN A NURSERY IF YOU WAS TO GO BUY THEM.
THEY MUST BE LIVE HEALTHY PLANTS ,

I WOULD LIKE TO FIND AT LEASE 12 PEOPLE , YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SIGN UP FOR EVERY MONTH BUT YOU MUST SEND IN THE MONTH
YOU SIGN UP TO SEND .

APRIL WILL BE OUR 1ST MONTH TO SHARE PLANTS THERE IS REALLY NO LIMIT AS TO HOW MANY YOU CAN SHARE AS LONG AS YOU SHARE NO LESS THEN 5 .

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO LIST THE TYPES OF PLANTS YOUR LOOKING FOR . & WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT :)

USUALLY I CAN FIT 6- 12 PLANTS IN A LARGE FLATE RATE SIZE BOX & IT COST ABOUT $8-$11. PENDING ON WHERE IT GOES.
I DO NOT USE THE FLATE RATE FOR THEN IT COST MORE , BUT YOU CAN FIND NICE BOXES FROM LOCAL STORES & THEY MAIL CHEAPER SOMETIMES THEN THE FLAT RATE BOXES DO.

THIS WILL GIVE US ALL TIME TO CHAT ABOUT THE TYPE OF PLANTS WE HAVE HOW THEY GROW IN OUR ZONE & IF OTHERS WOULD LIKE TO TRY THEM .
SOME PLANTS CAN BE INVASIVE IN SOME AREAS SO KEEP THAT IN MIND ALSO .

PLEASE SEEDLINGS DO NOT OR WILL NOT COUNT AS A PLANT . BUT CAN BE SHARED . LET US KNOW WHAT TYPE OF PLANTS YOU WANT TO GROW . HOPE YOU WILL STOP IN & CHAT WITH US .
SUSIE

P.S
We Do NOT Expect you to send every month but just the ones you sign up for this is just a great way to add more plants to your landscape @ a cheaper Cost then Ordering them :)

also just wanted to mention I Do Not Mean to sound rude or Mean in anyway but if anyone has had More then
3 NEG FEED BACK They will Not be able to JOIN UNLESS They send Their Box 1st & It checks out ok .
I'm Sorry I Do not like to turn anyone away Nor do I Like to Judge anyone , But I Do Check Just so I can make this a fun &
Safe trade for everyone .

What a cute gardening girl you found there, Susie, and a great idea to bring back monthly plant swaps. Any perennial is fine with me. To name just a couple I'm shy on are Tall Garden Phlox and Bearded Irises. I'm always interested in adding Agastaches, Salvias, Lilies, and more Daylilies.

Would you please sign me for April to start?

WELCOME ALL where to begin let me start with
paintedacres/jill ---interested, but will need more information

each month I will draw names match each other up with a person to share plants with . Usually you will not be sending to the same person that will be sending to you . So no chance of sendint the same type of Plants .

it would be much easier if you could put a list of your likes or dislikes Here On This Link
(COMING SOON)
This way the link will be at the top of our FORUM so when you are sending plants to someone you can tell pretty much what they
would like .

It would also BE VERY HELPFUL If You Update your trade page as to what you already have Such as if you have Named Daylilies & Want more we don't what to send what you might already have . Just a suggestion .

all i ask is when you sign up to a month to send That you will please hold up your end & Send on time your membership HAS TO BE PAID Up , Please send me your Name & MAILING ADDRESS if you are not in the Address exchange .

We don't expect you to dig up a plant & send the whole plant :) but if it is Big enough to divide & Share we ask that the roots are washed & Wrapped for protection.

we try to find at lease 1-2 plants that our partner has on their list of wants .
we ask that all plants are marked as to what they are .

Goldhillal : you ask what are seedling I'm talking about Little plugs plants that you might start from seeds , you can share them
with your partner if you like as extras , but this swap is for Nice Mature type plants that you can buy from a Nursery but they come from your gardens :))))

cuttings are not considered a plant , but you can share them as extra as long as you ask your partner .

this will not be a secret swap you will know who is sending to you & Who you are sending to .
there will be NO GIFTS Other then PLANTS .

you can share as many plants as you can fit in a large flat rate or med flat rate

well i have to get back in with daddy you all have a great day ask away if you have more questions we are here.
susan or crit can help :)))) also

welcome Tina_A you can pick & choose the month you want to play all i ask is that everyone who signs up for a month they will keep track of the forum as often as they can so that if i or their partner has questions for them about plants they can be answered .

you can ask a few who have traded with us before we are looking for health plants to add to our gardens & I Must remind some that there are some PERENNIAL'S as you all know do not like to be uprooted when they have not bloomed so yes they will or may WiLT & look very dead but keep in mind that as long as it is planted watered & left alone it will come back the next year , as long as you get it in the ground & watered.

I Think one report i got when i held these swaps was that a gal sent 1/2 her garden dirt in her box to her partner for the plants were not washed off , & Not wraped & nothing marked as to the name of what she sent. the receiver was not happy with the gals dirt or plants for they were also small .

i do not want anyone to be disappointed . as you all know with the cost of postage & plant it is very expensive by time you pay $7-$14.Per plant then $15, postage that is allot. this way you are paying just for the postage to share your plants so to get GREAT PLants You need to send Great plants .

Not sure how the rest of you feel but i would be willing to pay $15-$20. for postage to send great plants as Long as I know i will also be RECEIVING GREAT PLANTS.
& I Hope others feel the same way.

well off to get my day started here ya all have a great day & welcome . to all . let us know what might help us make this more interested for others :)

I would love to join, but probably not every month.
i go with mittsy to plant cycle meeting which are great amd i always bring home bunches of plants that i'd love to share here.
I love making hydrangea cuttings, and i'm sure my buddies will be getting a lot of them! :)
And if you can pack a box like me, you can get a TON of plants in a medium flat rate box. ;)
Question!!!!???
A lot of times i plant cuttings and divisions, these are planted in new potting medium, these are generally new starts, is it safe to wash them before mailing them? New to this.

Evening everyone.

USPS has a new Size C Regional Flat Rate Box that looks comparable to a #7 Priority box. I ordered a pack of the C's last night, will wait til they arrive and compare one side by side with #7, Med & Lg Flat Rate as well. I would not use Regional Size A or B for this swap as they are too small. The reason I brought up Regional boxes is it's more economical to use if you end up mailing to someone who lives close to you than using a Med or Lg Flat rate. You probably already know, but if your post office doesn't carry a good selection of boxes, like our little rural one doesn't, you can order them at http://www.usps.com. They're absolutely free, no charge for the boxes or postage from the distribution center to you.

SuperThrive is the product I use to revive perennials that arrive a little limp, and perhaps haven't decided where to plant them right away. They perk up in a day or two, depending on the plant. There are other vitamin-laden products, although SuperThrive is the only one I've been able to find locally.

I've always tried to send divisions of mature perennials that I would be happy in turn to receive. Those of you who have traded and swapped with me before know they're packed and wrapped and stuffed very well, and they are labeled.

Edited to say it's good to see new faces!

deejay ... you will like Ammi visagna and yes they are easy to grow and ocassionally will reseed. Mine got beaten up by the hail last year so were very short, only in the 6-8" range instead of the 2-3ft.

Pix is Adenophora l. Ladybells (related to campanulas)

Thanks for setting this up, Susie!

I don't have naything to offer YET, but I have some hopes, and i'll let you know if any materialize.

If several of the Salvias I started last year come back from roots or re-seeding, I'll ask to join for one month.

Also, if my giant blue Delphinium or that fancy dark red lily decide to spread, I'll be able to divide and offer them..

And I expect some Brunnera (Siberian Bugloss / False Forget-Me-Not) [P 3-7] to establish themselves soon and multiply, but maybe not this year.

I doubt if anyone would want orange Siberian Wallflowers or snapdragons, but I expect to have those.

I hope people also mention how they pamper bare roots plants when they trabnsplant them: I have a bad track record of planting things in the Fall, and never seeing them come back up.

Sorry, I was saying that WHEN and if some things I have multiply enough to share, THEN I'll join for a month. Right now I don't have anything to share except cold mud and a few common but NO ID bulbs.

I'm wishing you all well, and hoping I have something to offer later this year.

Susie,,May I join up for this too???


I am working on getting all my plants from the old house and will be able to share all my extras here. I am going to start a new garden here at the new place. Right now I just have some sedums, lots of hostas and a few other things.

I will be moving all my plants you all sent me last year up here too as they show up from winter dormancy. Will get a list made up as I can find out what survived a summer of neglect. I do know that all my Cannas made it and posible my ee's. I will also be able to share more of my lotus plant this year. I will have lots of Asiatic Lilies too, and hopefully my irises and daylilies.

Pix: verbascum phoenicium, mix
Pix: hesperis matronalis, v. f.
Pix: centaurea montana Amethyst in Snow
Pix" salvia nemerosa

The above are plants that I have plenty of to share.

kathy is that Amethyst in Snow blue & or white as it looks ??? i have oe that is BLUE but to try to share the plant i have to get out my HATCHET it is like Elephant Grass to get out there is no way i can dig it out.
but i love it . i Just wish it wasn't so hard to split it .

as for the Iris pseudacoris it is not near any water either i Have been updating my want list today while sitting here with daddy . so forgive the wishes but it is better then to list them all here .


you can look up the type of plants you want & if you go to the bottom of page click on add to wish list or want list.
it is that easy . then we can see what your talking about . & know if we have it to share with you.

deejay...center is blue and the rest is a glistening white. Blooms all summer for me when deadheaded. I have the blue variety, and am still looking for the pink one. I have many other centaureas too, check out my have list. Ya I know, I also need to update my haves and want pages, been working on that a bit also.

I used to have dealbata also but just didn't like getting transplanted that year, was full grown and I guess I didn't divide it down enough.

What happened to the part of the post you had up for newbies? That's what my above post was in reference, lol. So you wanna make sure that one of the months we do a trade,LOL. You got alot of pretty iris or even the iris p..?

Deejay...Yes, I have goodies for newbies and would be glad to help if needed with some basics or should I say, my extras. Let me know if we get some requests.

Ref. the other question, the only reseeders in the group are the montanas (both the blue and the white, got a new one last fall whose name is Blackie which a darker blue). C. Amethyst in Snow (pix is below of full grown plant) is a bit aggressive but easy to control and it does get big, think mine was 3 yrs old before it started to die out in the center, and got to 20"ish ht X 36"-48" wide.

Anita, yes it is Centaurea montana "Amethyst in Snow". Last year was not as good cuz it needed dividing, and didn't get it done so this spring it's on the to do list, (they die out in the center). So I either need to dig and divide or just dig out the center and replace with some nice soil.


Pix is an unknown Veronica, spring at 12", reseeds a bit. Does anyone recognise it? Almost reminds me of veronica gentainodes but the color is wrong. V. g. is a light ice blue (almost white), but does bloom at the same time, any ideas?

LOL, don't I wish. NO, they are not in bloom til May. Nothing blooming outside for me, everything is under 2ft. of that white stuff. I figure I need to see color and hope others enjoy it too. Lol. If not I will enjoy myself, lol. How bad is that?

Dee.. if you have a long spading fork, or one of those long shovels it easy to divide the grasses. Divide in half one direction, then the other. Gives you only four pieces to dig out.

I remember the first time I dug out a peony that had been in the ground only 4 years. OMG. I started on one side with one shovel. Another shovel on the opposite side, then started working my way around the plant and ended up breaking a new shovel. Learned my lesson. Now when I have large plants to come out I make sure the ground is thoroughly soaked overnight if need be and THEN I begin to dig. Much easier on the back, believe me.

Many purples are considered blue in Horticulture, but yes it truely is more in the blue range, color in pix is pretty accurate tho.

Yes is Hesperis matronalis (Sweet Dames Rocket). Yes many places it is banned, I'm sorry for them. Personnally I just love this plant. I do have a large stand and the fragrance is intoxicating. They also have another common name of "False Phlox", available in white and purple. Yes, they are reseeders, but always a way to take care of that, deadheading. I have let mine reseed at will so far but will be doing more deadheading this year now that I have a nice stand of them. They bloom in May for me in Z5, oops z6 now. I cut them back and get a second bloom at a shorter height. They are wonderful in bouquets also!! If I happen to mail any on a trade and the recipient doesn't want them, you won't hurt my feeling if they are tossed or given away.

Hey Mud... would share if you like...lol.

Pix: Here another one that may be on some list but I love it all the same. Daucus carota, 6ftX4ft, very fragrant, biennial and a buttefrfly host for swallowtails, another great cut flower and used as filler for bouquets.

Ralph is taking me to look at a place one of his coustomers wants to sell tomorrow. It is about 2 to 3 acres. Reason for wanting bulbs right now is they will be easier to move when the time comes.

I would like to join if there's still room - not sure about every month, but April would be great since I think plants move best after being dug up when they are closest to winter dormancy.

But August is good for some tap-rooted plants that have a summer dormancy about that time, like oriental poppies. Not sure how tap-rooted hollyhocks would appreciate that treatment in August, but if you can get to their roots in late winter, before they sprout, they'll transplant beautifully - found one in my compost pile one March, hollered over the hedge to a new neighbor puttering on his side and asked if he wanted it, he said yes, threw it over the hedge, and it flowered magnificently later that summer. Same goes for those tap-rooted platycodons and horse-radish roots.

Hmm, what I have - what I know I will have without fail is Joe-Pye, Autumn Joy Sedum, "Ditch" Lily (orange), Fern (no-id), hosta (a few un-named - at least I dont know their names) - ugh, Im so excited about what I got today I cant think...I have a few Colorado fir trees - small ones. Lilacs. I should have some Bishops Weed left, Lily of the Valley, small allium, bleeding heart.
I can go dig wild milkweed, alfalfa, I could go on and on...

What I want...Im open to pretty much anything. I would prefer things I dont already have. My have's list is pretty current.

Minnesippi -- here's one of the Joe Pye roots you sent me last year in an outside trade. It was spectacular!! Fast becoming one of the faves in my yard, in fact. Topped out at over 6' and full of butterflies all season although there was just one or two in this shot when I snapped it.


Any way you want to do it, Susie, but I always like a random draw. Seems to make for fewer "issues".

Should we list what we have on this page or wait until the months we're actually participating? (I love seeds too.) ♥

Mud, sounds all to familiar...I moved from MS to MN 3 years ago and frantically pulled everything I could from the ground. It was February and when we got to MN, everything was frozen to and inside the moving truck. Luckily they all came from MN, so 90% survived.

I posted my list on the other thread. My 'have' list is really pitifull. I do not have much planted in the ground yet. We are still trying to get all the beds I want made, so most of what I have is still in pots. (I haven't finished cleaning the garage out yet either. lol) I have several things that I can send good 'starts' of that will make great plants, but don't overwinter that much! I don't have the room to do that where they will get some sunlight. I have the dining room w/east windows and the game room w/west windows . Didn't think much about plants when I bought this house, evidently! lol

I haven't started a haves list yet, Susie, sorta like being in limbo waiting to see what pops up.

Keep hanging in there, Elfie. A local nursery sold me stacks of 5+ gallon pots last year for pennies each that trees came in that were left from landscaping jobs.

I have a local nursury that recycles pots...they place them in big bins and send them to the recyclers. I try to grab as many as I can before they go. I got trays for starting seedlings (105-122 plugs), qrts, gallons, 2 gal., 5 gal., 10 gal., trays and 21/2" pots. Gosh, I could start my own nursery, lol. Still haven't started my seeds yet, just too busy in the kitchen yet.

Does anyone have a BUNCH of lily of the valley they might consider trading, (like maybe a small box full)? lol. It's my hope to plant them in a new bed on the north side of the house. I remember them from my childhood in my mother's garden and I loved them so.

Pix show some of the trays I got from the recycle bins.

Dee.. no, sorry to say. They are from two years ago, before my brother moved in. Hopefully after the kitchen remodel gets paid off, I will try to get my outbuilding put up where I can grow more seedlings again. Last year I took over my bathroom tub, putting up two sets of lights. This year I haven't started anything, busy with the kitchen, tho am seriously rethinking starting something, lol. Need more plants!!!! LOL!

Do you really have that many lily of the valley? SWEET!!! How should we proceed, D-Mail? Kathy.

Hey...any takers for snow???? Got 8.5" this morning, already at historic records for feb. snow. And guess what, it's snowing again tonight. Looking for takers!!!!! Hope I can get out my 300ft driveway tomorow, cuz I don't shovel no more!!! Help, help!!!! Only joking, But I do hope I can get out tomorrow.

Pix: I planted about a hundred of these around the edges of my border til the lilacs fill in and they smell so good!!!! Valariana officinalis ( a common name: garden heliotrope). Pix #3 above, this pix shows a mature plant. tho only a spring bloomer.

Think I'll pass on the snow, but could use a few starts of Lily of the Valley. I have one little plug from my late Mom's house. That is all that has survived my many moves in the last few years. It is my birth flower and would love to get a few more started in my front flower beds.

I have some plants I was going to pitch as they don't flower here but produce huge plants. I didn't know about not leaving some dirt on the roots. I have informally sent plants to others and always included clumps of dirt around roots inside a baggy to contain soil. I thought they would travel better that way. Opsss. Anyway last year I dug up and pitched tons of siberian iris, day lilies, mums. Too much of some, and the mums were huge with buds but ran out of time for flowers. How do you know (find out) who has what you would like to trade. All the lists show what people want?

Please do add me to your list of participants. I should be able to dig out plants by mid April, but would probably be better to wait til May or June to assure they are all up and healthy.

Oberon, Several of the plants your mentioned are on my wants list. How long is your growing season? Since you live in Alaska, I really can't complain that ours is about 1/2 the year and was a bit longer last year.

LOL Elfie.

That pink cascading rose is outstanding, Carole. My only rose is Lady Banks, almost a year old now, and really hope she'll take off this year and cover the arbor shared with a Carolina Jasmine I've babied for 3 years.

Oberon.. another quick way to find out what people have or would like is their private list too. Can just click on the name to the left of their post, even your own. The link above is for our trade here this spring. Don't ever throw away plants...OMG, (lol) there are so many hungry people in here that would love to take them off your hands. Personally, I prefer to wash the soil off, wrap in plastic(the roots), and ship. Ok, you might need to slip them in a box. Lol.

Cville...Oh my, those are soooo beautiful. One of my favs.-peonies, I need to get that one again. Sniff, sniff, yup smells good to me!!! And that rose is just fabulous, how old and is cecile fragrant? Gosh, that's so pretty, what an acomplishment!!!! I'd be afraid if it was mine I'd pull up a chair and sit there all day in front of it. I am continually amazed at the beauty and diversity available to us and to think all this that we have came from star dust millions of years ago. How fortunate we are to have so much that can thrill the senses. Remember gals, stop for a moment and enjoy what you've created with your own little garden, life is short and theirs so much that needs to be enjoyed.

Sooooo sorry, Elfie. I kinda like the name Mud. But since there are no other Elfies onboard, guess we'll know who that is too. :)

Fruity, I love 'Lady Banks'. In CA Lady B was absolutely spectacular and absolutely covered in blooms. It took your breath away. One of my all-time favorites. ♥♥♥

Kathy, that rose is not at my current house. We moved here to TN about two and half years ago and I started all over again. One of the first things I planted was pink Cl. Cecile B ... but, alas, she is very prone to blackspot here in the summer-very humid South. :( I'm afraid she's coming out this year and something less prone to the fungal stuff is going in. Grrrr...

I've had 'Bowl of Beauty' die on me too. It seems if you get peonies situated right you can't kill them but if they don't like their site, they sure let you know in a hurry. :(...

It was 80º here day before yesterday and last night it was 30º. :>/

Kathy, I honestly dont remember :) And yes, the inflection made it..I read it in a "MinnEsota" accent :) I lived in Mississippi for a few years recently, so its not as strong right now, dontchya know ;)

The plants I got @ the home & garden show are blooming beautifully! My Northern Lights Az is just starting to pop color. They forced it but it wasnt in bloom for the show so I get to watch it happen in my living room :) And as I sit here & type in my garage, I am enjoying my beautiful Jane Magnolia...still wondering where the heck Im gonna plant it.
We've had about 3 inches of snow in the last few days..the most all season. Still not really covering the ground and more to come Sunday.
I have started some seed in my kitchen window..can someone tell me WHY they are all molding?!?!? I cant start seed inside to save my life. So frustrating! They get plenty of air...so why the mold? I've lost lots of seed this way.. ::(

This is my NOID peony..in one location it gets about 12" tall. In another location it gets about 24"-30" tall. Its the only one I have and I love it. It came with the house - my former mother in law had them planted in the front. I moved them to the back when we bought the house. I have divided them to spread them out. The ones left in the front have not flowered in years. Maybe its time to move them all to the back. I have not found anyone who can "name" it for me.

**If anyone wants bleeding heart this next season - keep me in mind/let me know. Dont go buy any!! I have large plants I can share very easily. I divided mine last year and have about 15-20 blooming size plants to share. Most are easily gallon size containers. The earlier shipped the better - of course the ground needs to thaw first :) (March, early April)
**If anyone wants Joe-Pye, I have LOTS of that as well. Amanda is a receiver of some last year :) Ask her if you have questions :)

I love this 5 picture thing!!

Look at my have list,,, I would be glad to trade what ever I can find at the old house. Some of mine will be lost tag hostas. But I can usually figure most out. Also I ordered a lot of 1 year old plants last year so I will be sharing only small plants of those if that is ok with anyone who wants them.

I have a list,, well I did have one,,sigh. I also have other plants others have sent me and will be a potting up fool . It will be one holey yard when I get done!! I have decided to go up next weekend to dig. I will go on Friday and return on Sunday night. Gryphon my DGS will help me and Goober too. So we should get lots done!!

I think that is about right. Will check on the Violas too.

This year Gryphon is working in the Greenhouse at his high school. They have a BVIG sale around Mothers day. I bought all kinds of plants for 50 cents to 3 dollars and these were big plants too. I told Gryphon when they get ready to have the sale I will give him money to buy me lots and lots of plants!! So I will be able to share alot of plants in May. One year I bought a 2 foot tall jade tree for $5.00!! Nice!!

Hey Elfie...Thanks for the reminder, The Denver Botanic Garden has their sale Mother's Day weekend. Most plants are rather$$$$, buttt...they have a members area. Cheap, and decent sized for $1-3. Also my garden club has their annual sale in June. Only problem is, I'm the one who bring most of the goodies.

Minn. ME,ME,ME!!! On any and all, Joe, bh, hostas. Lol!!! Can call me miss piggy!! Hey on to other things..you said you have a peony that's not blooming for you and it's been in the ground awhile. If you don't have it in a shaded spot, (peonies love full sun, atleast 6hrs. to bloom good). The other usual reason for lack of bloom with peonies is they were set too deep. Eyes should be planted no more than 1-2" below surface. Did you know that peonies are part of a woman's dowery in Japan, and that peonies will outlive their owners, growing to be over 100 year old. They are at the top of my favs. Got a place for you to look...Gilbert wild .com, for a name. Back when they sent catalogs, this place had approx. 15 pages of just peonies, full descriptions and color pix. Now, most of what is avail. is listed on their website.

Pix #1: my all time favorite, Duchess de Nemoures, oh so very fragrant.

Got ya on the list Kathy. :)Maybe I shoulda started my own thread ;) lol

I love peony. I guess there are white ones in the bunch that havent flowered in years. I am going to move them to the back. Its the south side of the house. I think they would be happier than the north. The pink ones above love the back yard. Thought they were Bernhardts but they are singles..the website didnt show my exact. I will keep looking.

Minn. I forgot to tell you about the mold thing. Sometimes it caused by the soil mix itself, sometimes it's caused by overwatering. Personally, if I get this and still want to keep my babies alive I try to clean out the mold and add more air circulation, ie a fan on low. Hope that helps.

Minn...lol. I just wish I had the room to put up my growing stands this year...but alas not the case. Still deciding if I'm going to start any in the bathroom this year. Atleast I have set up for two shop lights. Just finished in the kitchen for the day. Still waiting on somee warm weather to do sanding outside, gosh what a mess that job is, yuck!!

The stand was made with 1X2s and 2X2s, I got the plans from "Fine Gardening" about 20 years ago and haven't found the plans again. If (or maybe I should say when) I put it up again I will take detailed photos.Each shelf will hold 7 standard 11X22" trays, with alittle extra room, approx. 33" wide X 48" long. Hope that helps. Maybe my next big project will be my out building to do my growing in (along with my quilting, stained glass and painting-watercolor, acrylic and oils).

Minn, since you are in Minn and if your plants are in the window? Could be too cold by the glass with moister and will cause rot, wilt, and sometimes mold. Not that I am a seed starter.

Temps all over the page around here. Yesterday outside no coat and beautiful. Got the plants in the garden room and the solar room watered. Nice that I could drag the hose around. I worked the new little excavator yesterday...so fun. I am gonna be digging holes everywhere.

Looking forward to the swaps this spring and summer. They are just so much fun.

Costco has started getting in their bare root and bulbs, I just got a huge package of calidums for this year. I wanted white but they only had postman joyner but I think they are pretty also. My caladiums I have planted around my giant bird of paradise are coming back out. Every fall they lose their leaves (caladiums) even tho they are warm with lots of sunshine and then back they come in spring. They are resting one way or another.

Thats entirely possible, but it hits all of them even if they are not by the window. Im sure they are just too wet.
I was able to get hyacinth bean to sprout as well as coleus and crepe myrtle :) Im excited about those. Got my fingers crossed they will survive.
I was wondering if HD & Lowes had any of their bulbs out yet. Caladiums are on my list too.

Thanks Susie. I have several plants that I have received from you this last year. I LOVE the frostless gardenia. It is still small but wondered when they bloom.

Kris, that is too bad you have to dig up Goobers garden. It is toooo cute. She will have to make you a new one!

I have some peonies that I got from my late mothers house that are not doing very well. Maybe I need to move them out to more sun. Or could be lack of moisture due to being near a tree.

Have a blessed day everyone. Temps are to be 79* here today but the wind is going to be 25+ mph so not very pleasant. Will have to figure out something to do outside out of the wind.

St. Patricks Swap sign ups end Friday, March 2 @ 11:59 a.m. CST if anyone is interested.

For those wanting Caladium bulbs you might not be able to find locally, you can't go wrong ordering from Bill. The link below takes you to his website and he's also a seller on eBay under the name caladium_bulbs_for_less

Ok sorry for my absence lately it's been the month from hell but i'm focusing all my thoughts onthe gardening i'll be doing soon!!!! Spring will be here before we know it. (don't rain on my parade, this mantra is all i have right now! Lol) so today i chilled out in my pj's with some gardening mags a white flower farm catalog some coffee compliments of the Sssswap and updated my list in the wants thread. It was a good day!
Since my garden is new and small my idea is to buy several of my buddies wants (the big gallon pots!!!) and divide them. One for you, one for me, two for you, one, two for me. :D

Crit, two things I know about peonies, they can't compete with trees (they will get smaller and smaller) and they need sunshine. So if your peonies are getting weaker, the tree is probably winning, I will have about 8 to move sometime in the future...learned the lesson too late, after the tree was planted...oh well.

Rofl...outlaw that is what I do, buy big pots of plants and split them, if I get in a hosta swap on the hosta forum, I buy big pots from a hosta seller here and then divide them among me and my partner, I have also done that with daylilies. Win win situation. I am going to buy that big ole hosta empress wu this year...so excited.

Susie, glad your brother is getting better. Hopefully he will be home soon and can help you again, it is tough being a caretaker for sure. Luckly you have your solitude in your new home. Frankie is beautiful.

I have bought from caladiums4less and they were great bulbs. Still have some growing in fact.

Has anyone grown the Empress Wu yet, am wondering if it truely gets as big as they say. Waiting for it to warm up a bit more, then outside to do sanding. I wanna work in the garden tho!!! Still snow on the ground, 'spose to get to 60 today. Yeah!! Ordered a few garden books off of e-bay, still waiting for 3 more. Got "The Collectors Garden: Designing with Extraordinary Plants" By Ken Druse for $4.45 (list $45.00). Also: "Patios & Walkways Idea Book" by Taunton for $.10, yes 10 cents, ( list $24.95).

For those who have participated in the Hosta swap in the past, you'll receive a D-mail from ZZTOPSOIL when it's time again. If you haven't participated, I'm sure somebody here will let you know his swap is up and running. It'll be under the Hosta Forum. I didn't play last year, darn it, but did get a few small ones from a link Elfie posted in her mini swap last year. None of mine are up yet except the NOID clump and it's always early, even earlier with our non-Winter.

Crit, hostas are really really tough, so I am going to bet all of yours come back. I tried putting one in a pot because I was told they would make it thru the winter in a pot so we will see. It is under a maple tree that has solid roots, so if this pot works I will add some more hostas in pots. Need to remove that maple tree before it gets into the water line and under the house...oh good another project...rofl. Always something, wish I would of known more about trees before I planted all of these...

Growing up in SC, everybody grew Azaleas, including my Mom, and we often went to Brook Green Gardens in Myrtle Beach while we were on vacation

http://www.brookgreen.org/

Down South, Azaleas make pretty evergreen hedges. After a few weeks in the Spring when the blooms are spent, they turn brown and aren't attractive at all. Just my opinion. If you love them, grown 'em to your heart's content.

I hope the paperwork you filed today, Susie, means there's help on the way soon for Daddy.

These are in bloom for about a month here. With the use of early and late blooming varieties you can get at least a six-weeks display or longer. These are interspersed with glossy Abelia that bloom most of the summer. They were already here when we bought the house so I don't know if I'd plant them myself ... but every time this happens I tend to think so. :)

What a great score, Susie. I don't recall ordering from them before. Have you?

My only Hellebore has been blooming for weeks, just the old fashioned kind with ivory blooms. Several more Daffs and Hyacinths are blooming, and the Tulips are looking promising. My Euphorbia tasmanian I ordered from Bluestone Perennials last year is still small but has a cluster of buds atop the variegated foliage. Daylilies are putting up foliage and the crazy White butterfly bush never died down.

Hi all,, I just talked to Jim, Deejay9/ Susie's, brother and he let me know that she is in the hospital, she has possible pneumonia, and will also be having a stress test tomorrow. I am going to call him tomorrow night and he will let me know how she is doing then. If anyone has any questions you can d-mail me and I will ask him then.

Sending susie good warm thoughts and thinking of spring!!!
Look whats popping up! This seems way too early. Supposed to be in the 50°-60° range this whole next week. Was 68° last wednesday!!!

I got a whole mix of bulbs from a woman who had had some health problems so had not been keeping her gardens in a while, and she was moving. So she let a bunch of us dig out all her plants. I have no idea what to expect to see but i love suprises!!!
And i love being pleasently surprised by early spring!

Anita, I will put you down for JP & BH.

Nothing is popping yet...ground is still frozen. High 60s over the weekend. I put the Jane Magnolia out in the driveway these last two days and the bees are in heaven!! Between 'Jane' and the Rhodi's - they love me!

I trimmed back all the dead stalks of the Joe this weekend. Sedum is peeking and the lilac that budded a few weeks ago seems to have pulled through okay. The trees are popping something fierce.

** I think that I will now have to stop taking requests for bleeding heart until I know how much I will have. I have enough to cover all the requests thus far, I just dont know if I can do more at this point until they start coming up. I still have JoePye though.

He says she will probably be back online in a couple of days. He also says he feels real good and the stint has really helped him!! Sounded very upbeat.

Our temps have been crazy, rain Sunday into today, then hitting the upper 70's and one day predicting 80! Now we are zone 5 and this is crazy, daffs will be open by tomorrow, daylilies up all over, wowzer, it is amazing. Roses putting out leaves... mushrooms will be out if this keeps up...

Susie's home! She sounded upbeat this evening and is looking forward to catching up tomorrow.

Our lawn has a lot of Clover and Dandelions and without fail, both manage to pop their ugly heads up in my beds, but one of the worst weeds and the bane of my existence is Henbit. Hubby likes to have a clean gravel driveway and calls it hen something else...and we don't have chickens...lol

I have successfully WS poppies in containers, then taken -- oh, what is the expression, basically a clump about the size of a table spoon and just put the clump in the ground. They weren't much over 2" tall. And they all survived. But my weather is very mild. Since your weather is much hotter, that might explain why transplanting isn't very successful. I have moved the big orientals when full grown in large clumps including lots of dirt. Most seem to do okay also. There seems to be a lot of chat about freezing the seeds prior to sowing. I never thought about this as when I sow them in the fall they go through a long cold winter. Last year the seeds were sown in containers and went through the same winter. there is some thought that they have to be in dirt for the freezing to have any effect. Can't comment on that. I have some seeds outside for another DG'r for a good cold snap in little baggies. Sent a note to OSPS to inquire about the dirt thing. My guess would be that in your hot weather --- well, that makes no sense. California poppies thrive in hot weather. But those are not Calif poppies. Heck. You should have enough to freeze for a week or so, then sow in a couple of different types of sun and soil. Even put a few in small pots inside to start, then put the entire clump outside. Course you are having lovely weather now. lol. You can see how my mind just sort of jogs and jigs in every direction. If they don't work I will have tons more seeds this fall. I harvest every pod I can. Just hate to see those beautiful seed pods wasted and I surely don't want them taking over my garden which they would.

I will only give you some :) I have it in a bed that is 8' long by about 3' deep wrapping around a tree. I put some in the front bed between the retaining wall and driveway too, but not many. I would have more, but my mom got rid of 75% of her gardens last year - they filled their pool in and needed a way around the house. Lots of plants lost there - but too much to dig and share...and not any time.
