It looks like the ORVG Round Up will be June 2, 2007, at Higginsport, Ohio, providing the park is available.

This will be the thread for Plant Trading.

If everyone else's plants got whacked as hard as mine... think we all will need some Perennials...
My neighbors 'may' just be running to FL before this shindig.. if so I'll have access to some nice big annuals.
Too early yet to know what I'll have in the Tropicals ... stock EE's for sure ... possibly a few surprises...

I have no idea what I'll have by then. I have lots to divide and still have not gotten orders in for my sideline. ;)

I'll park here and fill in later.

I'll probably have ornamental grasses, daylilies and whatever crazy cuttings and seeds I start.

At last years RU, I unpacked all the plants I brought and set them on the ground. After the potty stop and running around to greet people, I returned to my plant stash. I found a man there that I'd never met before. He'd pick up one plant, feel it, rub the leaves, smell it, look it over real good then set it down. Then he'd begin with a second plant.

I finally said "Hi! Do you like those?" or something along those lines. At this point, I think he was slightly embarrassed and pretty well startled. I told him about the plants and I think gave him a few as he was running away. LOL After I found out who he was, I accused him of groping my plants and I did give him more plants since he obviously liked them! For the rest of that day and apparently a year later, he is still referred to as "The Groper!".

Dear All-
I see we are chatting here in the Trade Thread.
How would you feel if we started another trade thread with only trade info? I know I am being picky and over organized but I think it would be a lot easier if we had one thread where everyone could post what they wanted and what they had in one post within the thread, i.e. each person maintains one thread. Then each person could edit their post to reflect additional haves, wants, and "accepted trades". See example:



Tropicals to share.
Canna -ALL GONE [Ric]
Calla -Still available [Badseed; Jazzpunkin]
Colocasia Fontanesii -

Annuals from seed.
Tagetes lucida


Perennials from seed.
Salvia Maynight

Perennials from the garden.
Salvia Maynight - ALL GONE [defoecat]

Things I would like.
a man who likes to dig holes
a cat that can chase deer

For me personally, it's way to soon to discuss what I am bringing.
Normally we start a trade a few weeks to a month before the actual trade.

Maybe this one could stay as it is, with lists of possibilities then start a final trade arrangement thread for lined up trades and extra plants in May.
I usually do the trade threads and honestly, they all end up getting chatted on. I don't think it's deliberate, we just all get excited.

I just went and looked up last years trade threads. It was two years ago that we tried a final trade post because there was so much chatting on the trade list. People got confused. So last year, we just had the one trade post, with the chat and everyone had one box that they would keep editing with what they promised who, what they were expecting from who and extra plants. That did work because we could all see each other's post and what they expected from who or were taking to who.

Have you thought anything about doing the number thing with stuff folks bring other than pre arranged trades? Or, do you want to discuss it? It seemed like last year everyone was making trades on the spot is that how it normally is?

Normally most of the trades are lined up before hand probably just so we can bring what people want? I know after going to a number of these, you sometimes waste time and energy digging things people might not want or you might not think to bring something other people really wanted. I've heard of plant trades done with the number system but have not actually attended one ran that way. I will have my first opportunity to do that this year with the daylily club.

Another thought might be, for people that already have a pretty big variety, it might be hard to find something they didn't already have. I've heard of people just passing on their turn if they didn't need anything.

If someone actually wanted me to bring them a $50 rare elephant ear I would but I might not want to toss that on a table and take my chances of not getting back something of a comparable value unless I just had way too much of it. I'll be the bad guy and say it bluntly because I know it's been discussed. Most people have their "prized" whatever or very limited amount of something that they would share but maybe not give away.

I'm meant to finish that post by saying, because of the reasons above and the fact that most of us don't see each other that often, you are still going to have private and prearranged trades.

I know that there are always pre arranged. I just thought everyone also brought stuff just for general trading or giving. That is what I thought there had been talk about letting folks pick, then after everyone had picked, or decided they didn't want to pick, going back through again.

I've only heard it mentioned a time or two so maybe that is why it's always been the same. At the very first RU, we all had prearranged trades and brought extra plants, then there was a number drawing for door prizes. I just wouldn't want anyone's feelings hurt if they saw someone put a bunch of different plants in one place and others in for a general swap. Maybe previously arranged trades look about the same?

Maybe you should find out what everyone wants to do. With my medical junk the way it is right now, I'm afraid to plan 3 weeks from now, forget 3 months from now!

I usually 'trade' for what I need... if... there is a small number available...
Outerwise I just bring a bunch of stuff and let fly...
I think we got a ton of extras, everyone seemed to have a few... ...
But if it grows we seem to always find room... lol

Like everyone else I don't have a clue what will be available yet... I know I'll have Tropicals... but which ones?

If dispatcher is coming... and still doing slates... she needs time to get creative though so ...

I don't have a clue right now what I will have. It will have to come up, and show itself, and the increases over the winter, before I will know for sure. But I will be starting tomato seeds sometime next week, and will be willing to start some if you have requests for something in particular. I had 58 varieties of tomatos last year, and will probably be more this year. Most are heirlooms, and I have some good ones. Just let me know in a week or so.

I couldn't remember Michele, I just thought we'd talked about it at one point. I just thought it might be fun to have an extras table that we could take turns picking from. :) As far as I know I don't have a wedding to shoot this year, so I can stay til park closing if need be. LOL

That's a great idea, just a table for plants not originally spoken for. We could be assigned numbers, and choose from that table, until they were all gone.

Don't forget, everybody needs to bring some sort of door prize. I enjoyed that immensely. It doesn't have to be anything expensive, just something garden related that maybe you already have and enjoy, and want someone else to have one just like it.

Love the idea of a door prize.

Love the idea of the extra table. Unless the weather totally wiped the graden, I need to get rid of some of the less deer resistant plants, including unnamed daylilies. [These were from the NC botanical garden, so they are good varieties, but the child removed the tags and now they are NOIDS.]

Also, I would love to plan some trades so I actually leave some room in the garden for them. Come May I sometimes go on a buying frenzy, trying to fill in all the dirt. Some how I think that the weeds will be less if I fill every nook and cranny. It's an obsession for which I need to seek counseling.

Rox, I don't think the counsel you'll receive here will help, lol. I'm a 'pack 'em in' kind of gardener too, and I'm hoping to curb that tendency once I've moved (yeah, right! We'll see how long that lasts, lol).

At this point, I know I'll have the following up for grabs:

Alternathera- Purple Knight
Perilla magilla- hot pink
Coleus
Various sedums
Lamium- White Nancy and Beacon Silver (purple blooms)
Various Heucheras
Tall phlox- Prime Minister, Bright Eyes, and others

I've got plenty of common stuff I can bring if anyone is interested, like Stella D'oro daylilies, Autumn Joy sedum, pink and yellow evening primrose, Jacob Cline monarda, and white yarrow. Also should have seedlings of various things I'm wintersowing and starting inside. Details will follow :)

Everything multiplies fast in the loose, frothy soil where I live now; thats the main thing I'm gonna miss about this place when I move. I'll be dividing more today (weather permitting), but so far I've got Silver Shadows, Cascade Falls, Stormy Seas, Lime Ricky, Creme Brule, Silver Scrolls, and Heucherella Kimono. Pics of them here:

I'd love any and all. I absolutely adore Heuchera.

I have Lime Ricky, Creme Brule, Silver Scrolls...but I'll take a few more.
Funny, I had Heucherella Kimono, but the deer pulled it out of the ground and it died.

I don't have Silver Shadows, Cascade Falls, Stormy Seas, but would love some.

RE: EE.
I brought back some interesting EE collected in Hawaii. A few Xanths (Robusta and two no ID - BWilliams is working on it). And a few Alocasia without ID (including one that Brian suspects is a hybrid or a yet to be described.) If they pup (and it look like they are) I'll have some to trade.

Have really lushish A. gageana.
Will have other EE, but need to see how they do in the next few months as they wake up.

Defoe, I have them planted in the ground. Perhaps I should try a pot to contain them a bit more and make the whole weeding thing easier. They are pretty forgiving. I think I have moved and or divided them every year and they just keep on trucking. I got mine from Dad and his plants covers a fairly large area. He has red Dianthus planted next to them and when they both bloom they are stunning! You definitely need leather gloves when you work with them though.. no matter how careful I am I seem to catch a couple fine needles.

I do have some great looking seedlings started...dozens of varieties of annuals as well as perennials. And I am a pepper freak. I have 10 different kinds of peppers started (many ornamentals) and would love it if I could find some one to take the surplus. Last year I gave my extras to friends, but I don't think they gave them the loving care that they were born into. LOL.

Daylilies, Iris, we'll get you fixed up, just make sure you have lots of room in your trunk. :)

Hey girl don't you sleep either?

I always grow bell peppers, bananas peppers, thais, and jalapenos for eatin', but most of the rest of them are just for pretties. Last year I had some beautiful burning bush pepper plants with red foliage with small deep purple fruit. They were so pretty I plan to use them as a focal plant this year. And then there are the confetti peppers...and the medusas...and...

This is only my 3rd summer of being an obsessive-maniacal-gardner so none of my perennials are too mature yet, but I'm building, building, building!

Lala,

My first year gardening was an accident. My elderly neighbor had three extra tomato plants. That was enough to set the ball rolling. The next year I grew my own tomatoes and peppers from seed. The following year I got real brave and started herbs and perennials from seed. I think the rest, as they say is history!

At one point, my entire seed list was heirloom tomatoes and peppers...

Tell me more about those ornamental peppers...LOL

Hi unclehudy! I don't know if I've had a chance to welcome you or not! I especially try to get the Ohio people!

This is only our 3rd Ohio together and I think we normally have 50ish people or so including kids and spouses. We usually only have members of DG with their family and sometimes a friend or two. We don't spread the word on other sites or anything, on purpose. We aren't trying for a huge meeting but like to get together with people we talk to all the time around here. :)

We're a pretty harmless and talkative bunch! I hope you'll consider spending the day with us.

I certainly hope to attend and will do painted slates made to order for trades. I like to have prearranged trades for them . I will bring an extra or two for a doorprize. This is my space, I just put up the "staked claim "sign. I had thought about painting some old windows for trade as garden windows if anyone is interested. I am starting some night blooming jassamine and if it roots, I will have it for trade. I will also have blue bachelor buttons ,ox-eye daisies forget-me - nots, gold cosmos, purple coneflowers and paprika yarrow and lunaria. I am anxious to see old friends from last year and meet some of you new ones. I'm glad it is a little later in the year . Maybe the weather will be better for the round up. What is the closest motel that is fairly reasonalby priced? I hope we can spend the night and wonder around cincy the next day. Lou

Will post trades here:
Have to trade:
Husker Red Penstemon
Creeping Thyme
Herb Robert ( (Geranium robertianum)
Shast Daisies
Papricka Yarrow
Hopefully, night blooming jasmine


Would like to trade for:
2 Tomato plants (Big type for sandwiches)
Salvias (Any KInd)
Hardy Geraniums
Really want... a great big elephant ear & Black eyed Susan Vine

Gosh, I just happened on this thread by chance..

I'm not sure what or how much I'll have, but I will bring a boatload. The one thing I know I'll have are Lilium bulblets... probabaly Silk Road, Leslie Woodriff, Black Beauty, White Henryi, Caravan, and a couple others. Also a pink hardy chrysanthemum with a lighter pink center.

I might have specialty daffodil bulbs, and also a 'Dragonwing Red' Begonia or two.

It is way easier for me to say what I want than what I'll have LOL!

I'd like a black Elephant ear and maybe some others. Also some heucheras...Geminii, I don't have any of the heucheras you mentioned, so let's see if we can trade. Rose Zepharine Drouhin.

They especially looked great around the base of my bird bath and they got a bit of extra water being there! I loved them for the constant splash of color. Chele gave me a Kopper King last year and I got lots of compliments from that plant.. If anyone is looking for a hibiscus with purple foliage talk to Chele.
I have hens and chicks also. They have filled up their space.. I have a couple different types and one is spiderwebby.

We had Nicotiana we got from someone last year (possibly ROX or Tabasco) and it about knocked you over as you came out the front door at dusk... wonderful scent!

I would like things that do well in dry shady areas. I have lots of ground cover under my Spruce trees but would like something a little more interesting.. The Heuchera isn't doing too badly.. and the money wort seems ok. I think I lost my blue hosta but will have to look this year. The last couple years I have barely looked on that side of the house due to circumstances.. So if it's a plant that can handle neglect that would be great also.. lol.. all my plants need to be able to handle neglect..

Hey Chele..I have some regular hosta I can probably divide this year if you are interested. I think you said something about filling shady spots?

Last year I went and bought about 10 heirloom varieties from them, raised them and saved seed. So I have probably 40-45 different heirlooms.

Would be happy to send you seed, or raise some, if you would like.

A couple of places are selling it this year, but I bought mine from Baker Creek, I think I even have a few seeds left over from Shoe last year as well. I just ordered some coleus cuttings, so we might be able to swap some of those too Peggy. :) I'm glad you're able to come! I think I need to make a big ole birthday cake for all these birthdays!

I do know that I had a giant Marconi pepper last year (heirloom) bought from VGKMY that is a very good one, and will be willing to share that one with you.

We will get together at the RU and talk about tomato seed saving, girl you can save bundles by saving your heirloom seeds, rather than buying them. then you will have more to spend on ?? daylilies, etc.

Oh, I would love to meet Kathy. Wonder if she can be persuaded to take a day off from the market and travel to our RU. I will make the offer to her, and she would be welcome to ride with me. I will d-mail her.

I might be interested in a mild-medium pepper for general use. We don't do the extremely hot ones.

I know I can save, and every year I am fully intentioned on doing it... but I'm lucky if I can get my canna's out of the ground by cold, much less keep seeds straight! LOL I had planned on using the hoophouse to keep them from blowing over in their containers last year, and I've got the method saved, and have read it a bazillion times... I just never get around to doing it.

I dmailed Kathy too, about the roundup, and I wanted to ask her what was out in the nurserys in L'Ville right now. I"m hoping that I can just make a trip down there in a couple of weeks if I don't find all the annuals I need online in the mean time. :)

I've been looking at my photos from last year, end of may/early June to remind myself what will be blooming... and how filled out my containers were at that time to try to get an idea of when I need to start them this year to have them filled out by May 27. :) If it would STAY like today and tomorrows weather, it wouldn't be a problem!

Melissa, I did the wintersowing this year, but so far, have nothing that has germinated. I am so disappointed, as I thought that I would start the flower (annuals) and have them ready to go by the time we could plant them out. So while starting tomato seeds tomorrow, I think I will toss some annuals in some flats and see how well they do there. Grrr, hate to waste the time, money, and effort for things that just won't germinate.

I will have to go back and see what I might have done wrong. They were wintersowed on January 19, and it will be 2 months next week. Wouldn't you think I would have had something by now?

I haven't d-mailed Kathy, but am going to do it right now. Hope we get a positive response.

Bonnie, I wintersowed last year, and some stuff didn't start germinating until the end of March, so don't dispair too much. But, I didn't wintersow myself again this year, it was too much hassle for me, to keep the containers on the deck with my husband constantly witching about "Hillbilly Haven's"...

Kathy has commitments that day that she can't get out of...but, if we go back to an earlier date next year, or we do another get together in summer, maybe we can convince her?

Sure Ric, which ones are you interested in? Besides those listed above I have about 50 more varieties. Some are beefsteak, and just good eating tomatos. I have the Marconi Pepper seed too, It is a giant sweet green, instead of a bell shape, it is elongated, and I used them last year for roasting, or kabobs on the grill. They are really good. Just let me know and I will get them in the mail to you.

I planned on doing it this weekend put I have had Hadlee about all weekend so didn't get it done. :) Does anybody need patio tomatoes or Aunt Rubys's German Green?

Don't forget to check the plant trading thread and check lists. It will be invaluable for what you promised and expect to get. GW made neat links which I put at the top so you can go to each person's list. :)

LOL That's okay. I've not thanked Kimberley yet for the links. LOL

There was an open house at our other house today and there was not one visitor! Of course it was a beautiful day and there were no lookers at any of the houses from what I hear. We ran down this morning, mowed, weed eated, cleaned and got the heck out right before the showing.

I came home, fixed the link and shot out the door! Why is it there are never enough hours but there is always more than enough work???

Chele -- sorry about the lack of lookers at the open house. Must feel especially discouraging after all the work you did preping for it!

My DM is a real estate agent, and I was one too, for a little while. I never had a house sell from holding an open house. We (my DH and I) go to open houses frequently. Looking for a new house is pretty much a hobby for my DH--I call him a "house slut" because he always has a roving eye out looking for another house! But we've never bought a house that we saw during an open house. Mostly we go to open houses looking to see what's available for what price--and out of pure vulgar curiosity. DH and I are both "old house" fans, so we go to nearly every open house in our historic districts...

The people who are truly in the market to buy will mostly likely come through your house with an agent --and not just ramble in during an open house. Open houses can be useful in really hot real estate markets...but mostly that is not how your buyer will find your house. Wishing you a quick and profitable sale soon!

Thanks Kim. I'm not really distraught just yet but I sure wish it would sell! It's not been on the market very long, just under 2 weeks! We've already had 5 showings and one cancellation. I wish someone would tell me they hated something so I could rush in and fix it. LOL Soooooooooo, want a house in Ohio?? LOL

Sooo, want a house in Pleasureville? No I think that our contract will hold up. I thought it very optomistic that we would hear something on Friday. I know that she has the financing, just waiting for all the inspections, appraisials,etc. Chele, I wish you luck, as it looks to be a good property. However, I on the other hand have an acre to throw in the mix!!

Rox, is the Ismene festalis perennial here? I thought they needed to be farther south.

No. I have to dig them up every year like the amaryllis.
Basically you dig they up before the 1st frost, store them on the garage floor until the green die and put them in a cardboard box in the garage for the winter.

I can do that. I have other bulbs I have to dig too, so I have one bed in the yard that's just for plants that have to be dug up for the winter...
