My choice to send is #1, Susie.

Time flies and can hardly believe we're already near the end of another year swapping and trading plants. Fall clean-up is in full swing here, too.


Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

I have been cleaning hundreds of spring bulbs all summer so I am ready for #1 with an added surprise being a bag of bulbs!

Ok, I'm HERE...lol. I forgot to sign up for August...I will be sending named. I found that my unusual (plants that is, lol) nursery is beginning to mark things down. They have a great table of quart pots for $1.....anyone up for some goodies???? LOL.

They do have many of the usuals but also goodies that I have to look up, lol..... Anyone ever grown the perennial snapdragon yet....Antirrhinum braun-bianquetii. Some I got last summer, one is just about ready to bloom is Eupatorium joicus, which is varigated and white blooms. A couple of other goodies I'm waiting for to arrive on the $1 table.....Veronicastrum virginianum or sibericum, Veronia narbonense, Heracleum lehmannianum, and more Angelica gigas, and whatever else I can find... and goodies to send when I find out who they will be shipped to. Lol. So can I play????? Kathy

Here's a nifty one...Penstemon palmerii, wild pink snapdragon, the only penstemon that is fragrant.....and can grow to 5feet high.

Still wanting precipt. here, only 5+" so far this year......maybe my new Fairies will help....

Fall clean up continues and spent several hours weeding today. Gonna pay tomorrow but one section of that bed was almost overrun with weeds and wild morning glories choking the Cannas. Take it from me and never dump a mix of potting soil and supposedly 'cured' cow manure on your beds like I did last Fall that was leftover from the massive containers we grew Tomato plants in. I hauled off at least 8 wheelbarrow loads of weeds from a small 12' x 8' area. It's finally clean and looks so much better! Some weeds were easy to pull, others needed a shovel, and even had to leave a few roots hoping hubby will be able to pry them up.

Would love bulbs other than daffodils....I have about 200 daffodil bulbs that need planting....so my partner will be getting some bulbs in her box too!

Kathy -- you rock on the names! I didn't know there were perrn snap dragons! So cool!

Can't believe it's the last plant trade! :( I don't really like winter at all!

I haven't participated in a group plant swap before, but would like to give it a try. # 1 or #2 would be O.K., except for solid yellow Daffodils - have plenty of those. I have some Walking Iris that could use a warmer home for the winter. Are there any preferences on types of plants or ones that participants really don't want?

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

Are your walking iris yellow?

Barbourville, KY(Zone 7a)

I think I will sit this one out, but I am sure it will be another fun swap.

#2 Since I gave away all of my untagged plants and plants that didn't match the tags away to people that didn't care what the plant was.

I also have lots of tropical milkweed seeds. I was trying to attract monarchs but with the heat, not much butterflies. I also have some blackberry iris seeds.

I am especially interested in spacey or Star Trek named flowers. I have been trying to get star trek celosia but no luck so far. I love daffodils. My husband and I have a custom made headboard with a unicorn, tiger and lots of daffodils. The artist is a wood burner and also uses stain. It is fantastic.

The Walking Iris are supposed to be yellow. I rec'd them from a Florida trade, but they did not bloom for me this summer. We are in the middle of a severe drought. I will choose option #2. The Orange Tiger Lilies developed lots of little bulbils on their stems again, so have a trade of those available. Anybody like Lemon Balm, Catnip, or Peppermint? How about Dame's Rocket, Orange Trumpet Vine, Pie Cherry trees, Maple trees, Catalpa trees, Wild Raspberry canes, Purple Ajuga, Wild Violets, Lamb's Ear, Purple Coneflower. Purple Obedient Plant, Orange Daylilies with maroon markings? Also have some Ground Elder, but beware, this stuff spreads!

WOW Susie! Bingo WINNER! Congrats!

I'll miss Tink but it does sound like she'll be the star turkey! I can't wait to see the youtube videos....let us know if she posts any or when the uploading gets done!

Jamestown, OH

Kind of off topic, but what kind of turkey was Tink? Our free range chickens have personalities, but have no experience raising turkeys. She played with cat toys? We have a goose that loves to raise the handle of his water bucket up and down all the time.

Hi everyone, long time since I last checked in.
I envy all of you who still have green or even colors in your garden. My garden got cooked; I am hoping there are some roots still alive in the ground that will come out next Spring.
ALIKat32: The caryoptersis I started for you is still alive. I planted it by the water hose to make sure it has enough moisture.
FOTV: I have what should be the agapanthus bulbs. Will mail those to you soon.

Elk Horn, KY

I would like to join this one:) prob #2.
