Please put me down for April, Susie. I'm so glad it's that time of year again.
Already have some plants divided and potted up.

Elk Horn, KY

I would like to join in the april swap. Will post my list later

Kiowa, CO(Zone 5b)

Hi....Willl have goodies to share after all. The month of March has been rather warm here just as many others around the country. So far only a trace of precipt. for the month of March, will be dragging out the sprinklers tomorrow.

DEEJAY...how we going to do this swap, are you assigning names or what, not sure, thought I better ask, lol.

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Kathy, I need to dig up our D-mail about the trades we talked about last Fall. Time flies. Has all your snow melted yet?
I think Susie's plan is to list our partners directly on each month's thread. That'll give her a break from having to keep up so much.

Kiowa, CO(Zone 5b)

Ok..so you wanna trade with me first????? LOL. I feel like a dummy sometimes. If you find that list let me know where it is, ok? Hey look at this nifty pix I got for ya.

(Judy) Simpsonville, SC(Zone 8a)

I'm in for April.
is my first time with this swap, i have many questions. How large of a plant? Does the plants need to be bare root or do we send rooted in a clump of soil?

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

Gm & welcome to all
Judy as for plant size you your judgement as to the size you would be happy with from someone else .
or you would buy from the store .
usually we just wash most of the dirt from the roots & then wrap a moist paper towel around the roots then i use a newspaper to wrap in & then Save my bread sacks to ship them in work well .

yes i will assign everyone a partner , BUT if you & another player would like to do a trade Please let me know
& I will set you up if your doing two trades let me know this will help me allot.

I will be able to share with 2 players a month so if you want to do a trade with me just let me know it will help allot if you all can let me know who you would like to do a trade with that would really really help me :)))
then i can assign the rest .

well its cloudy & wet but i hope to pot up a few plants today . have a safe weekend.

oh if your new & you sign up please give us your name please

Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK(Zone 7a)

WOW..... can't believe you guys have so many plants already ready for a 5 plant swap! I only have 4 ready to go, but I have 9 of my big hosta from where I divided it. lol And my arrowhead plant momma needs to be trimmed. Also have some airplane/spider plant babies big enough to pot up, but probably only 1 or 2 times right now.

I guess I just have to wait until some of my ws'ing plants are big enough to trade to get in on this. I have to keep telling myself "you just got your gardens going or in mind, it will take a while". ^_^ I need to run by the other house and see if there is anything there that I could dig up and pot. I know I had some ajuga, lily of the valley, sedum, hosta......hmmm, that's all I can think of. It is a small garden. I had roses in all the beds in the back yard with a few iris, zinnia and bachelor buttons.

You all have fun this month and I will catch you later on.

I have several things from trades that are just coming up. I didn't know if they would or not. I'm so happy. Several new cactus that I got last fall are really perking up. One of then has the "cobwebs" on the top that I think is so neat, but still very small. Lost a few of them, but they are all named.
Fruity, the Tiger Lily Citronella that you sent me I thought had died, but it is putting up TWO shoots. Yea! Also the Monarda that was in pots are all doing well. The Spider Wart made it through the winter, I wasn't sure it was going to.

OK, enough rambling for now. Will catch up to you all later!

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

If this is what you're looking for, it would be an annual there unless you were able to bring the tree-size plants in.

One comment says soak and then nick the seeds for germination:

Susie, since Kathy and I are trading privately, I'm still open to send to 2 more participants. It doesn't matter if they're the same folks you pick to send to me. How you work out the matches is perfectly fine with me.

Elfie, if you still want bulbs I can fix you up and add plants to boot.
And Judy, I have a several plants that are on your wants list.

Elk Horn, KY

Diamond9192002 and i have just recently done a trade.

Elfie @ Goodwater,, AL(Zone 7b)

Fruity that sounds good. Am I supposed to send you plants too?? I am having great results with all the mini hostas I bought last year. I need to take some pics. Would you like some of them?? I have other plants too.

Ralph took the kids fishing this morning so I am home alone!!!

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Susie, since Kathy and I have been working out a private trade since last year, would you please remove her as one of my April trades? That way she'll have an opportunity to send to someone else.

For my 2 boxes, I'll send to and receive from Judy and Elfie. Thanks for your note, Judy. I'm glad we're able to work together.
Elfie, that sounds good and I wouldn't mind having a plug of your Elfin Thyme. Mine bit the dust.

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I have not mailed anything yet. I did get one trade but I can't plant safely, yet. The way things look, I can safely mail in April.

brainerd, MN(Zone 4a)

Im shipping to many people already so it doesnt matter who I am partnered with :)

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

What plant is that in the 5th photo? Primrose, something else? It looks interesting.
I hope Jim dug the holes for you. Lots of work there.

That's how I'm planning to do some Cannas this year, in the ground in pots. What I do not look forward to is digging holes for large pots in our clay-based soil that's laden with rocks.

(Mary) Anchorage, AK(Zone 4b)

You said at least five plants? 5 of one kind, or five of any kind?

Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK(Zone 7a)

Your gardens are looking good Susie. Take advantage of having Jim to help you while you can! I've been working on weeding the beds that are not covered in leaves. I have 2 area's still covered in leaves that I hesitate to clear until I know it isn't going to freeze again.

We had 3 pine trees along the road/driveway die this winter. DH cut them down and burnt the stumps. He was going to put in burmuda starts and get some grass growing. I was looking at it today and thought that would be a GREAT place for another flower bed! And it would be a full sun which I do not have a lot of. I am going to put down some barrier, then edge it with some of the huge sandstone we have on our place. Then I can fill it up with dirt and have another great bed! I'm so excited. ^-^

Had DH pick up some more allergy meds for me this afternoon. My sinus' are draining and making me cough. When I lie down at night I start coughing and nothing will stop it! Thank God they make a 24 hour allergy med just for what I have!!!! Tree pollen here is at 9888. UGH!!! Things are yellow everywhere from the oak tree pollen.
