North Central Texas Fall Roundup Trade Thread.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Not a problem Lynea, I just wish we had at least 2 weeks in between, it would be easier on those that are trying to make both.

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Actually, if I can get myself organized, it will be fun having two RU's back to back. I can load approximately half the plants one week and the other half, the next. Unless I lose my last bit of sanity and trade twice as much, it will be easier. I am not waiting until the week before to dig and pot. I have already started! I have learned to sort everything into boxes labeled with recipient and to print two copies of my list. I always lose the list at the last minute, so an extra copy will be already in the vehicle before I start packing.

Lynea, there is no cure for iris addiction. Sorry if I infected you, but I will bring "medication." It's not such a bad addiction to have. I received two boxes of co-op irises in the mail today.

Josephine, if you still have an extra fig, could I have it?

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Yeah.. we're confused...Lynea.. but remember.. we are still SANE!!...rotf!!

Denton, TX(Zone 7a)

I would love to have a Fig!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Well, I know that I had promised one to someone earlier, and Pat asked first, so she gets the extra one, but maybe I can root another another one for you Melva, or if the first person doesn't claim it, I will give it to you Melva.

Denton, TX(Zone 7a)

What kind of Fig, is it Josephine?

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Josephine, you are so sweet. I have access to fig cuttings and can root one. Please let Melva have the one you have.

Denton, TX(Zone 7a)

Are you sure, Pat?

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Definitely. I can root figs and have a friend with a very nice bush.

Melva, my sweet little Amber kitten has turned into the orange marmalade terror. The water spray bottle has worked, somewhat, until now, but she took a soaking today to continue doing several unacceptable behaviors: chair shredding, plant shredding, people shredding. I hope Corky is doing well.

Denton, TX(Zone 7a)

He is growing like a weed...and he keeps getting under my feet when I walk..I tell him if he trips me, he will be sorry..not sure if he believes me...

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Pat and Melva, I will wait to see if the other person claims the Fig, it is Texas Brown Turkey.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Pattie, the tree that James brought I believe is a large shrub but actually I am not sure.
I think it is a Bee Brush, Aloysia gratissima,
I have two that I got from Pat and planted them at the Fielder House garden.
They are blooming now and smell wonderful, does it look like the picture?

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

No, it doesn't have rounded leaves. If I get a chance I'll take a picture of it later and post it.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Alright!! thank you Pattie.

(Phyllis) Flint,, TX(Zone 7b)

Yes it was me asking for a fig as mine died but we are going to a wedding the end of the month in Houston and until I start getting my paycheck for school in session I don't know if I am going to be able to make it over to the RU.

So go ahead and give it to one of the gals coming for sure I can get one another time.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

O.K. Phyllis, I will root another Fig for you. I do hope you get to come, you are such a great helper and a lot of fun to have around too, but I understand there are limitations.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

O.K. Everybody, I finally put up a list, please check it out and let me know what you want.

(Phyllis) Flint,, TX(Zone 7b)

thanks Josephine I'll post closer to time if I can make it ..I know I would love to as I see some great stuff offered fro trade but hate to ask and not be able to come.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Phyllis, maybe you can ride with someone from East Texas, surely someone besides you is planning to come?

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Very good list Merpeg, you will be trading your plants away very soon.
Pattie, those leaves do look different, especially being serrated at the tip.
I will ask James what it is. Thank you for taking the picture.

Grand Saline, TX(Zone 7b)

It wil be nice to meet you , Merpeg!

Phyllis and I usually ride together because we live so close. Sorry, I can't offer a ride this time. I'm going to spend Friday night in Arlington. My mother in law is going to the RU with me and the Friday before I'm going to dig her plants for her.I hope to get her "have and want" list posted soon.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Excellent Lynea, one more person to add to the list. I am sure Phyllis will find someone else to ride with.

Dallas, TX

Josephine ... if you or anyone have those Daturas , with the flower that unfolds. I would love some some of any color.:)

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

Peg, I'd love to have your two hostas. Please check my list and see if there are plants you would like to have. I'll be adding more too as soon as it looks like my cuttings are going to root and I get some irises and daylilies dug and divided.

Midwest City, OK(Zone 7b)

Patricia, the hostas are yours. Thanks so much, causing I was already eyeing your ghost plant and indigo spires if they are still available. Peg

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

(Becky) Colmesneil, TX(Zone 8b)

Peg.. I'd like a hanging basket of caladiums..please... Look on my list for whatever you like!!

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Boy, Josephine, I just don't know. It has all those serrated leaves. I can't tell from the photos if any of those are serrated or not. It's in shade right now, so it's not blooming, but maybe when you get it planted it will.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

I dmailed him so he should know.
