Hi everyone
I'd like to know if there is interest out there for a xeriscape --only-- group trade.

I know I personally have plants that I can't send in regular trades because they have such specific high heat/low water tolerance, and I don't know if they would survive in other climates.

So, what do you think? reply here or dmail me

I think that's a good idea...but unfortunately I'm in a quarantine zone for the light brown apple moth so I can't participate. :-( But if they ever lift the quarantine (which I'm starting to doubt will happen anytime soon!) then I'd definitely be interested.

Good idea Marzissa. I'd have to see what I have that quaifies for trade since I don't have (yet) a xeriscape. We just got water meters and we're about 6 months out from metered billing, so xeriscape is going to become important to me. If my water bill triples, I can't buy as many plants ) : so I'd better take action!

I have an attriplex canescense or two I could trade or a lot of seeds that grow fast and easy. I probably could get seeds or maybe some seedlings too out of some others, like Nepeta, which is like a container weed at the moment but I love it.
