Ok, I went ahead and made a thread cause I know some of you will want to know what is being brought ahead of time. The swap is a great way to foist seeds and plants you absolutely don't want and if no one wants them then you sneak them into their vehicles. LOL

Anything and everything is welcome. All we do is bring plants, put them together and grab what we want pretty much. A big free for all. Ok, maybe I over simplified but you get what I'm saying. :~)

You put it perfectly, Pepper. There always seems to be more than enough to go around.

It will be really early for plant trading unless GOD blesses us with an early spring. But I may be able to dig a few starts of unnamed daylilies, some perennial sweet peas and hollyhocks if they are up yet, lots of unnamed color unknown Rose of Sharons and maybe some peony starts if the soil is soft enough to dig that deeply, etc. Otherwise it will be mostly seeds and starts that people have started over the winter season.

Plants must multiply while noon meal is being served. Everybody takes more home than they bring, how can this be possible?

I am starting tons of perennials this year. I will bring a good assortment. They will be in 4" pots. I might have something you don't have.

I will have some seeds from a swap and will hopefully have some free plants from work. Then there will be plants that my grandma will make you take home with you cause the last place she wants it is in her yard cause it is over taking it. LOL. Plants over take her yard and contain themselves in mine. Go figure. :~)

I would love to have some brug starts if they are anything but pure white. That is the one I already have.

I won't know what I will bring until I know how thawed & digable the soil is. Others can tell you that I am usually very generous with my peony and spiderwort starts. I'll run out of the peonies one of these years so I may have to start making the starts I give away smaller. I'll also have lots of comfrey starts I think. And maybe elderberry starts.

Linda, unless you have a green house or very high ceilings in your home you will have to raise them as annuals. It is probably best to start seeds about now to get nice size plants that will bloom well next fall.

Are you familiar with the kissing cousin of the brugs? If you live on a farm you probably do. It is known as Jimson Weed to most farmers. They are technically a datura and there are many cultivars of them. 2 that I know of are wild, considered very noxious weeds by most, and loved by others for their oh so fragrant blooms in the evening. I always let at least 3 grow to small tree size in the bird yard for shade for the birds and the evening fragrance. I do have to watch the population or they would take over the place. The seeds are sometimes used by drug addicts and were used in ceremonies by the American Indians because they are hallucinigenic. It doesn't take very many seeds to be a lethal dose.

I don't think I have any pictures of my white brug. I have a digital camera but it is mostly a waste of money because I don't know how to do anything with it but take the pictures. I use to know how to load them onto my computer & print them out once they were on there but have forgotten all that now from lack of use. Now I just use one of those disposible 35 mm camera and pray for good pictures.

And on my goodness I still have 35 mm disposibles that I have not developed yet, some many years old, and I better get to doing that to.

I would like some genuine Bethlehem Star starts. I have something that may be them but I don't know for sure. So if I can get some for real starts I can label them and hopefully get a lot of them going. I would also like Obedient Plants. As you can see I want things some folks consider invasive. That is so they will keep coming back and I won't have to keep replanting some areas.

any interest in iris? I have a few of my Grandmothers' Iris that I can bring. The iris I bought the last couple of years, did not make new ones yet, but GM's iris are doing great... I also have some house plants that look great on a patio in the summer ... I keep them inside til last frost then out they go til it gets cold again... spider plant, different varieties of wandering jew, snake plant (motherinlaws tongue), 2 agave pups, christmas/easter cactus, etc

I will have to look around and add to this list...

Starr, I have the yellow iris and the purple iris you gave me a few years ago when we had the first RU in Sedalia. Hopefully they will get to bloom this spring.

Does anyone want elderberry starts? I think I can get several if there is any interest. And how about mimosa sprouts? I may be able to get some out that were small last year if the root system hasn't grown too much over the winter. Hundreds will sprout this summer. I'm eager to hear from those who took the ones from the last RU. I want to know if they made the transplant ok. If not, I'll have a bountiful supply for replacements or maybe just gather seed pods for others to start their own.

I may have a few blackberry spouts to share if anyone wants them. These are thorny plants but the berries are wonderful. The canes are pretty upright. I tie a lot of them to the cattle panels I have behind them.

Time to start getting giveaways potted as the ground thaws enough to permit.

Ok. Linda, the elderberries have fairly shallow root systems so they shouldn't be a problem even if the soil is still pretty hard(frozen). I'll do my best on the mimosas. They have taproots to China.

Thanks leaflady
don't over do digging those tap roots : ( . I'm very excited about the elderberries : )


I think if anyone want's any , I'll bring some Ajuga, starts from many years ago from my grandmothers home.The plant has spread nicely

I don't know the name but it has bronzey foliage with spikes of blue flowers in the spring, I like it for a ground cover and how quickly it covers.

I took some last year to a farmers market, my first farmers market ever and a lady told me it was the old fashion kind. I didn't do very good as a sales person , I gave it away , lol. I need to keep my day job : /


heres a list of things i could dig up

Ajuga
horseradish
horehound varigated
hyssop
rue
tansy
yarrow
daylily, just the common orange ones
maybe some comfrey
spearmint
garlic
chamomile

I have a lot of buckweat seed to share
I should be having a lot of ws stuff ready to transplant so will bring as well


I could dig up some Autumn Olive, this is a very fast growing tree/bush
fragrant little flowers. It can be evasive . I made jelly out of the berries.
great tree for wildlife, let me know if you want any small trees.

I'm bringing my dh and his old truck, well I could bring my old van but I like his old little truck better. We'll load it up and tootle on down the road with the windows open : )

Its going to get really warm tomorrow, in the 70* WOW And Yah!!!!!

I'm still wanting Obedient plants.

Elderberries will be dug this week. I'm sure I can get some mimosa starts. I have lots of mimosa seeds too. I'll have hollyhock and perennial sweet pea starts too. No promise in regards to color of either of these. I may have some Clove Shrub starts too if I can get to them and get them out.

Linda, your elderberry starts are in a pot of dirt.

I'm doing thorny large blackberry spring maintenace today and have some starts if someone wants them. Let me know soon so I know if I need to put them in a pot or back in the ground. I've had to move several back into the alloted row already. Lost a lot of plants to the late freeze last spring when they were in full bloom. All of the canes on some plants were of bearing age and now they are dead. Some canes are trying to grow and bear this year when they are 3 years old. Blackberries bear on 2nd year canes. These plants originally came from a UPick patch that an aquantance owned. He gave us 3 doz plants nearly 20 years ago. The berries are large and sweet when ripe. They ripen over about a 2 week period. Even little 4 year old Skyler has been willing to put up with the thorns to get these blackberries for the past 2 years.

I also have chives and garlics to share. Both are topsetting and I didn't get all the bulblets removed last fall so I have dozens of both in clumps. The chives have white blooms(I would like to have some of the purple). The garlic is your common grocery store white and purple skin ones that I have been raising for a few years. They originated in CA and took a few years to aclimate to our climate and soil. These are doing well now. I have more than I will get used so I'm willing to share.

Does anyone have Lily of the Valley to share?

GOD bless and keep each of you.

Yes, leaflady it is thorny. We have never had any of our pets get into it though. It's the flat, kind of oval-ish kind. It's also edible I believe, if you dare. It has to be peeled somehow. I'll get some pic's tomorrow. Plant files probably has some too. I know you can graft other types onto it, which creates a one of a kind.

If everyone could bring a box with them to hold plants to take home, or the box they came with will be good to. I'll bring a couple of extra boxes as well. the time is almost here ^_^

We have had countless dogs & cats in the 26 years we've lived here, I cant remember a single one getting into the cactus.

Bernie, if you are coming I'd love some Lilly of the Valley. I've always wanted some, and I have the perfect spot!

And leaflady, I'd love a little garlic! We're going to make pickles this year, but I read somewhere that I would have needed to start it last fall to use it this summer. Is that true?

I don't know yet what all I'll be able to bring--my gardens aren't very established yet. I will have some plants that I've started inside, assuming I don't kill all the little sprouts in the meantime! Are you looking for anything in particular? I know I have some orange poppies that are creeping out of my beds and into my yard.

Booker

editing to say I can also bring some Egyptian Onion. I have lots growing near our shed, and they are really interesting.

Sure, Linda, I'll dig you some onions! They are so interesting. . .all curly at the top. I didn't know they were edible, too, till I looked them up on PlantFiles. I guess you can eat the base bulb, the green part, or the little top onions. Mine are along the shed, enclosed in some railroad ties, to keep them from "walking" all over the yard. They overwinter really well in my area, and stay green all winter!

I'll bring a few extra, too, for the swap.

Aw, crud! Just got a d-mail from Bernie, and realized that I've been on the wrong thread! I guess I thought the Central Midwest RU and the Iowa RU were the same thing. Duh. . .newbie!

Lindawalkabout, it is the RU in Cedar Rapids, IA I'm going to, not the MO one. I'd still be glad to find a way to send you some walking onions, though. I'm sure they'd ship really well. Just bummed that I won't get to meet you in person (unless you are going to the Iowa one, too. ..?)

So, Leaflady, forget about my request for garlic! I'll just get my heiney over to the right RU thread, and try to forget this happened!

Thanks for the heads-up, Bernie! Wouldn't want to leave anyone wondering what happened. . .

Linda, you will be getting the Egyptian Walking onions. I have them all over the place. I have a large supply of boxes I'm bringing. Also lots of pots I no longer need for those with greenhouses or who just want more pots. I have way too many. The kids will be so glad to see those extra pots leave.

I dug a lot of garlic starts this evening. I don't know if they will go ahead and make bulbs this year or not but they were bulbs I didn't get dug last fall and every single clove sprouted. People can just take what they want of them.

I have the mimosa seed pods & still need to dig the sprouts. I am not ready for this yet. lol I never am. There are lots of seeds left from last fall that I'm bringing. I still have the spiderwort & chives to dig yet too. Tomorrow evening and Friday morning will be very busy for me. But it will be so very worth all the rushing, praying I haven't forgotten something, knowing & finding out I did forget something, etc. I got a couple guy type door prizes today. We need to make them feel included.

I brought some plants home from PG today. Holly doesn't want any eggplant at all, I won't know until I do some internet searching which if any of these I want and I'm sure Kris will only take the Rosa Bianca. Pepper, you might want to check the give away plants at PG tomorrow or Friday and see if they have many left. I would like one of the purple leafed peppers if there are any left over. I don't want the peppers, but the plants are pretty.

I planted the lettuces I got from PG last week tonight in some old containers beside the garage. I put covers over the containers to keep cats from using them for litter boxes and the poultry from eating the lettuces, mustard, etc. Almost nothing is safe here until it is well rooted and pretty good size. Even then a lot of plants are in danger if some critter takes a liking to the plant or container.

I need to go eat my supper. My stomach is telling me to feed it or it will start in on my backbone. GOD bless and keep each of you.

I have a few questions about the plant swap. A friend and I are interested, but can only come for a couple of hours. We would love to pick up a few new plants, but won't have much to bring. Would it be okay for us to come just for the plant swap? (We don't want to be greedy) I know there is so much else going on, but our weekend gets too full too easy. If it would be okay, when and where is it, I'm sure it is listed some where here, but I can't seem to find it. Thanks!

Buffy, check the RoundUp forum. There is an RU in Cedar Rapids in the next week or so. Someone on that thread can tell you and your friend the answer to your questions.
