Protect those new plants Josephine!
North Central Texas Fall Roundup Trade Thread.
Tina, I have some volunteer crape mrytle. What is your prefence, dark pink or white. Sorry, do not know the specifics, as in name; they were here when we bought the place. They do grow tall. They were absolutely beautiful this year.
a little of each hoya would be great.
It doesn't matter to me which one or both is fine too.
Stephanie, I'd love your Pride of B. Josephine had promised me some seeds, but given my track record with seeds, the plant would be better. Oh, and hey, you had promised me a start of the mealycup sage when I thought mine had been killed. It came back (with a vengeance, LOL). So, please save that one for someone else.
Catz, got you for the butterfly bush. Tina, I'll start one for you too if you like.
Anna, do you have another LA iris? Those are just lovely.
I would love to have a butterfly bush start. Thanks so much.
If you still have the mealycup sage I would love one. Thanks
Stephanie -- I too would like some mealycup sage. If you have extras. Thanks!
Banana, does the LA iris require lots of water? That alone is my hesitation in requesting one. I'm trying to go "waterwise". If water is not a problem and you have more to share, count me in. Thanks!
gretagreenthumb,Hmm..I don't know how to answer that. I have it in a place that gets run off from a retaining wall so it gets more water than just sprinklers. Maybe some one else has better info. I can give you one to try...I won't come after you if it dies!
Bananna -- how comforting that you won't come get me if it dies. With that being the case, please I'd love to try one. Thanks!
I have one Anna that I am sure I can give you a start from. It is way out growing it's pot.
I love you!!!
Anything you want from my list? Otherwise I can dig or root something.
I am just getting started with my plants and won't have anything to trade until next spring or fall. My hypertufa pots crumbled so I will have to practice more...maybe have some for trade in spring.
However, I do have 1- 50 pound bag of rabbit manure I purchased from a guy on Craig's list. ($10) I could divide it into smaller bags but not sure what size would be useful. suggestions? Or it could go to one single person if you have a good size plant(s) that I want. If you are wanting it for your compost you would probably need the whole bag. I used 1 bag on each of my two bins.
Also have volunteer sweet gum seedlings and oak trees I can dig up.
Hollies, Yaupon, possumhaw, or American
Anna....You have already given me a society garlic that wasn't claimed in San Marcos...that is plenty.
Hello PNND....glad you will be making it back this year!
Okay, folks! Got the following down for you:
Pbtxlady~Pride of Barbados
Catzgalore~Pride of Barbados
Greta~Pink Skullcap and Katie's Pink Ruellia
Tina & Greta re: Mealy Blue Sage~I don't have any extra that I can't remember who wanted (in June when their's died). Let me see if I can get some cuttings going and/or I can bring you some cuttings. Will that work?
Steph, that was me you promised the mealy to, but I don't need it cuz mine came back.
If you have enough for both of us then I will take one, if not then let Greta have it and I will try to get one in the spring. Thanks Tina
Wonderful, Pattie! Thanks for letting me know!
Okay, got a Mealy blue sage for Greta! Tina, I'll try to root one (or divide mine which is getting big anyway) for you. :) Today, I don't mind being outside! LOL
Thanks everyone for the Mealy blue sage -- I feel like the honored guest.
Steph -- thanks!
This is getting exciting -- I feel like a kid in a candy store.
Wow, the weather sure improved quickly! Hopefully I won't have to spend so much time watering this week, and can start looking for trades. :)
I couldn't believe it, today at noon it was 74 degrees, what a marvelous change!!
I planted 25 coneflowers in one of my new flower beds, I guess you can tell I love coneflowers, I have to replace the ones that the mysterious animal took destroyed this summer.
I just heard on the news that we had a record low high temp for today. That's pretty cool for late August!
You know what, Tina, I was out weeding today and I saw what I *think* is a mealy blue seedling. If it's needed, I can dig it up and bring it. I'll watch it for a few days and make sure that's what it's going to be.
Hello Guys, I just posted the links to the trade lists at the top of this thread for easy reference.
I have a trade list? I did not know that...I will have to see what I have on it ...LOL
Well you do have a post about trades, and you can put your list there.
PlayNNtheDirt, I have a hosta for you. I may be able to give you comphrey. It is one plant and I am not sure about digging it up to split it. Advice anyone?
Does anyone have some agastache available. I'm building up a hummer/flutter garden and would love some to add to it.
I have one that has 1 1/2 inch light purple spikes that grows about 2 ft tall. Smells very fresh! You are welcome to it.
Catz, can I get a Russelia equisetiformis from you please?
I will take it please bananna18. Thank you :)
I'll put your name one Steph :) Anything I can do for you?

Well I had to look up what Stephanie wanted...b/c I usually like the same. Catz, do you any more Russelia equisetiformis?
I sure do. I'll put your name on it bananna18 :)

Catz, do you still have any of the russelia? I have never seen that before, and I'd love to try it.
Stephanie, can you wait till spring for the aster? I have that beautiful blue one (October Skies) that Liz shared with us, and I'm planning to move/divide it in the fall when it finishes blooming. You're welcome to a division, but I don't think it will happen by Oct 10.
