Please I Hope that some of you who have JOINED IN MY ROBIN Won't get up-set But If you have seeds from Any of the GIVE Away SEEDS For New Bee's Please You are welcome to share with other PRIVATE Trades If you want But I Would rather you not share them here .

You May think I'm Being A Prude or what ever But I Have always Shared FRESHED SEEDS From my Gardens OR New Commercial Seeds I Have Boughten & I Would Just Like the same from our players
I have said that if you do not have ALLOT of seeds to share this is fine as long as you take what you can use & Not TAKE From my Robins to trade with Or Share with others for more seeds , That is not fair to other's here in this robin .

I Put allot of time & Money into sharing with the rest of you & I Hope to always run a Honest Robin.
I'm not pointing fingers or saying that anyone has done this . or will do this .
I have asked that you Put your names & any info you might have along with the name of the seeds & If from your garden or comercial or from trade .

going to put this over on the new thread also . if you want to know why I Do not want those seeds in my robin dmail me .

Susie... I completely understand that it isn't fair to take seeds from the robin to use for trade, and that you don't want old seeds from other trades in the robin. I do have a question, though. I start a lot of things early. Once I see that I have enough for my own garden, there are often at least a few seeds left, sometimes quite a few. Those are the ones I'm likely to pass along so they won't be wasted.

Also, I put in at least as many varieties as I take out. Most are harvested that season or the one before, some are leftovers from new-ish commercial packets. That seems fair, doesn't it? Just want to be clear. I love being a part of the robin, don't want to make a mistake!

Thanks again for everything you do for us!

It's true that many of the New Bee seeds have no dates on the pkts, and some of those may be more than three years old. Good point!

SOME will be only 1-2 years old, but if you don't see a date, there is no way of telling.

Any pkts that I split or re-labelled, I listed the year if I knew it.

Please let me know if anyone is interested in purple cone flower. Just the "standard" one. Im not sure if I should put these seeds in or not - I know they are common. But I know many had disease issues last season. These are asters yellow free.
I will put them in when I get the 1st box so they are in the beginning of the 2nd go round.

I am so sad. My sister just passed away today. I have to figure out how to go on by myself and get done the things I wanted to do with the yard and trailer. I'm going to have to look for a job to help out money wise. I guess I'll try WalMart as a door greeter. That's the only way they will let me set on the job. I've seen other door greeters setting down occasionally. I just can't stand for hrs. With my spinal injury and bad knees, I have to be able to set, stand, set, stand. Most of the door greeters only work a 4 hr shift. I should be able to do that.

Thanks everyone. I'm just stumbling around in the dark now, but after a few day I will find my way back. We've had rain the last few days so I can't even go out and work in the garden. I can't seem to focus on any one thing. I know it will get better with time. I'm just glad I have friends whom I can talk to here.
And I did not mean to hyjack this thread. Sorry.

Hi Evelyn!

>> Corey ~ Are you going to be joining us? Or are you just send seeds to Susie?

I've been meaning to send seeds to Susie for MONTHS but never gotten around to it. What I have now is mainly Asian greens like Bok Choy, Chinese cabbage,Tatsoi, Komaztsuna and Mizuna. Some mustards.

Some herbs:
Perilla / Shiso / Beefsteak plant. Green or red, japanese or Korean.
Kinh Gioi / Vietnamese Mint or Balm / Elsholtzia ciliata
Culantro Ngo Gai / Eryngium foetidum: Vietnamese herb similar to cilantro but with a stronger flavor
A little Shungiku / Large Leaf Tong Ho / Edible Chrysanthemum.

Not a lot of any one thing except Bok Choy, Chinese cabbage, Tatsoi & Komaztsuna. I've got MANY varieties of BC & CC. One cute little extra-dwarf Bok Choy intended to be harvested at 2". Doesn't that count as a "baby leaf" crop?


I don't think I should join the Robin: between buying and trading and having little time to garden, I already have more seeds than I can plant in 50 years!

In fact, I have more seeds that I'm really excited about growing ASAP, than I can fit into my garden in 5 years! So please don't tempt me!

just a suggestion-maybe for the second time around start the seeds at the location that is the furthest (is that a word?)away and have it work its way back to you. that would totally change the shipping. and if you use a flat rate box everyone would pay the same postage.

KC If i send it back out the same way it started you will be getting pretty much what you just went through we started with the east & I ask if anyone wanted to go through the new seeds that others after them have shared . & You said you had most of what was in there & didn;t find much you didnt have so by sending it back to the east 1st you may then find some newer seeds .
from some of the new players .

I mean there is not a problem with changing the flight plan Backward but there won't be much of a change in cost if everyone is to use a MED FLATRATE It would be the same $11.65 with conf or about that .

One thing I should have said for the 1st robin is if there is like 5 pks of one kind in there Please don't add another 5 pks of the same type

well off to enjoy the sunshine .

So, Susie, if I were to "pick up" a few things to be included in the robin for the second time around, should I send them to you (like I did for the first robin) so they are in there for the start (being I am at the end of the line) or just post what I have to see if anyone wants them and mail directly to them????

Hope you are staying warm and that you have figured out your furnace situation!! Now is a bad time for the furnace to "act up" !! Take care. Shirley

Well Shirley at this point I would say that when the robin gets to you Just put what ever you have extra of to share with other in it then send it on home .

I then go through take out what others has shared with me & I add what I Can for others .
Had to turn my old one back into the store where i got it from & They gave me one to replace it so it is up & Running now thanks to brother JIM :)

& Spent 3-4 hrs at the ER for my vita-k drip to thinken my blood for it was way to thin & was bleed inside .

Susie, now that I've started mine and know the seeds are good, I can send you some Nicotiana Nicki Pink. They are out of trade. Last year I planted them too close to other nicos and I have lots of very busy bees, so not sure what will come up from those seeds. But in 2011 I know the seeds are true, and that's what just germinated very strongly for me. Anyone else? I also have extra N Langsdorffi and Fragrant Angel.

EVE- all the seeds for the Blue river Hib was in the robin so when it gets home I will check & if there is any left I will put your name on it. I do have one called PINK ELEPHANT from my garden if you would like to try.

[/quote]

No thanks on the Pink Elephant...it will not fit in my White Flower Border. I have not seen any 'Blue Moon' for sale lately. (Sorry, I meant Blue River!) I do not know if it comes true from seed, as it is a hybrid. Have you grown it from seed?

Oh boy, I'm next!!! Can't wait! Meanwhile, here's my list:

Commercial Packets:
Nicotiana Fragrant Cloud
Petunia Avalanche White (2 pkts)
Snapdragon Montego White (12")
Platycodon Perlmutter (soft pink)
Tomato Sweet Million

From my garden or trades:
Nicotiana Nicki Pink (1 for Susie)
Nicotiana Fragrant Cloud
Nicotiana Langsdorfii
Datura Metel LaFleur
Datura inoxa White
Lobelia Siphilitica
Dianthus Sooty
Salvia Turkestiana
Squash Tromboncino

I have varying amounts of these, more than 1 or 2 trades of most, will put some aside for requests as long as supplies last.

Beth, there is no way to know when it's coming until much, much closer to your place on the list. You can start guessing 1 or 2 or 3 before you. If you know you're going to be away for more than a day or two and miss it, just tell Susie and she'll switch the order around so it doesn't sit waiting in one place too long.

@Evelyn - if these are not spoken for they will work nicely in Max's Memorial Garden:

Chrysanthemum serotinum
Leonotis leonurus var. alba - White Lion's ear - 1 (few seeds)

@Shauna - I LOVE that image. I think I'll have to save a copy of it. :)

@Birder - there are no stupid questions ! The Robin will come to you in the order on Susie's list, and whoever is on the list kvbore you puts it back in the air via USPS and will have a delivery confirmation number so you can track its whereabouts.

@ Minne - I grew some echinops ritro last season but they don't bloom first year. There are about 8 plants are show pushing up new leaves and I am VERY excited. But I don't need more seed. xox

I will post a list of my haves which will be VERY long. Most of you know I grow natives, but I may add some things that I received this season already in trade that I can't use, if that's okay. You can just let me know what you want. I'll post the list on the other page since it's so long.

@ deejay - looks like this thread is just fine for our blabbity blah. . .

Have a great day.

Sorry, I have a request...Is it possible to have everyone put the height info on their packets of seeds. I'm guessing alot of people don't care, but I am going nuts trying to figure out heights on alllll the babies I'm growing, and hate to say many aren't listed when botanic name is not included... I'm trying to map out my new garden and it's tough cuz I'm not sure what should be planted in front of what...YIKES!!!! I'm just trying to show them at their best, especially since I have such deep borders... Thanks!!!! I might just list some plants and people might just be able to randomly spout off info, becausse they've grown them... I can on with many of the things I've been growing for years... Is that ok Susies? But almost all the seed I got from the trade were new to me... ( I only have a limited amount of air time for puter so not much looking around outside of Dave's... In fact after gkid sitting tomorrow, I won't be back til Tues. Thanks, Kathy.

Whoa Kathy! You've got your work cut out for you.

I did grow the Echinops from seed. I obtained it thru trade. I don't remember if there were any special germination requirements, but I will look back at my notes. The leaves coming up are very sturdy and I am so excited. :)


I took a look at the radar tonight to see if anyone who needed rain got any. Cold and wet is my least favorite weather. April showers they say...

Miss Tilly is a dwarf. i have it in too much shade so it sprawls, but here's what one website says: "Miss Tilly’ is a compact F1 hybrid that reaches only 6-8 inches in both height and diameter and produces an abundance of blue, star-shaped flowers above its dark-green foliage." It's also less hardy, z6 only, but I've had mine for 4 years.

The Astras: Large, interesting balloon-like buds burst open into long-lasting 3 inch star-shaped flowers in summer and into autumn the first year from seed. The dwarf 8-12 inch tall plants are exceptionally bushy, branching and heavy blooming. They thrive in part sun or light shade and in most areas of the country are quite long-lived. Perfect for edging borders, or use in patio containers or window boxes. Winter hardy to zone 4.

9. Dianthus armurensis Siberian Blues - Compact, bushy mounds of bluish evergreen foliage erupt into a sea of mauve-blue flowers in late spring and are the closest yet to a true blue Dianthus. Ideal planted in borders, rockeries and containers, flowering over a long period each summer for many, many years. [Zone: 3 - 8]

Kathy, would that be Bluestone Perennials? Oh, no! I just looked...they no longer sell in 3's, which they did formerly, and they have A. 'E.C.Buxton', which they describe as having white flowers, and A. 'Kelwayi' with golden yellow daisies. Yes, and they are not located in Nebraska, but Madison, Ohio! Oh well! Maybe you will remember...LMK, OK?? ^_^

evelyn...yup was sitting outside and it came to me..lol. Bluestone Perenials, forgot they were in Ohio tho. They used to sell 3 colors, the white, light yellow and the gold which is yes kelwayii. I've had it for more than 15 years and origonally gotten from them...Sucks, they don't sell the light yellow anymore...guess I'll have to locate another source, phooey.. I decided this winter to re-add the gold back into the garden and have a bunch of new babies, (they also reseed too). I like that they are in bloom most alllll season, spring to frost. Not sure if I have their new catalog, no more in 3's huh.. gosh it was such great pricing.

czimmerman...wow that Solidago gets that tall or is it a typo? lol, just wondering. And are the flowers a candleabra type (reyed) or single stem with clusters?

Sure Kathy - I had some, not sure what variety - prolly just S. canadensis, but they were 10'-12' at the very least. Crazy. In fact, my Agastache grow that tall too. Must be something in the water.

Hello everyone, just checking in and have a question ??? How do you get rid of wild morning glories ???? Got some "free" compost from the city last year to fill in spots and boy am I paying for it !! Wild morning glories grew in it last year and was choking out everything in it's path !! Need ideas on how to get ahold of it and stay ahead of it before it starts this year !! HELP !!!! LOTS of different types of flowers growing in this bed so not really an option for weed killer .

depending on the type of MGI think the most important thing is to not let them go to seed, however there are one or two that spread by runners, i think. then just pull them up everywhere you see them. just how I have heard they are dealt with.

An old pro gardener I once knew called it bindweed, impossible to get rid of completely, she said. Just never walk by even one leaf without pulling it, that's what she said was the best way to deal with it.

BINDWEED would be the correct thing to call it !!!! It wraps around anything and everything until whatever it is climbing on totally disappears !! It grew so fast last year that it was virtually impossible to keep up with . It is a large flower bed and by the time I would get done weeding the whole thing (usually takes a couple of days) it would already be "creeping" in on the end I started at !!! Someone said -- pulling it out only makes it grow faster because it is a "trailing" root system and each time you break it , new ones start at the break !!! SO FRUSTRATING !!!

Try weed killer as soon as it starts up Just don't plant in the area for a couple week or so after you spray it on or till up the spot & use the spray or PREEM then lay Newspaper down then mulch to kill it out .

That's why morning glories have been illegal in AZ forever (they still sell seeds tho'and lots of people grow them in yards ) ... a long time ago they would invade the cotton fields and muck up the cotton equipment. I think it's the wild ones that are the problem.

Sorry Susie, I posted on the wrong thread, then found the other one and asked again. I hope she's OK!

80 degrees here in the city yesterday and today too, after a chilly, chilly March. Weird! It's supposed to get cooler again though... Good, I'm not ready. We still had snow on the ground in CT this weekend. Winter-to-summer in one week isn't fair! I need it to thaw, so I can get going on all the prep for all the planting I have to do. Yikes!!!

In Forest Farm, they have what appears to be 2 light yellows...they describe Anthemis E.C. Buxton as a lemon yellow, and A. tinctoria 'Moonlight' as pale yellow.

http://www.forestfarm.com

These days we are lucky to get anything at "great prices", huh?

Forestfarm has great shipping, but their shipping prices are high. It is nice though if you can get what you want and then not have to worry if they will survive. I think that everything from them has lived well...
