North CENTRAL TX RU **April 5th ** in ARL>>> (TRADES #2)
TRADES PAGE #2
Charlene, I will bring you some different kinds of coleus starts.
This is going to definately be a "newbie" question. I have heard mention of fresh coffee grounds as trades. What do you do with fresh coffee grounds?
Sometimes I just throw them on my beds, but usually I mix them in my compost pile. There is some threads on DG somewhere I am sure about the pros and cons and what the ph should be etc. But no more than I spread around, mine works fine.
Sheila, may I have one of the White evening Primrose?
May I have some of the Artimesia? Please look overmy trade list and see what you would like in return.
O.K. Lizzy, two Artemisia for you.
May I have one of the yellow lamium? I have a lime from Kroger that I would be happy to start a cutting and some Meyer lemon seeds from a trade (IOW No idea if they are true or viable) that I would offer in trade?
Patrob - could I get a Ghost Plant (if you have another to trade)? Hopefully you can find something on my list you'd like.
Jennifer, I have plenty, and I'll put your name on a ghost plant. I don't need anything in return, but In the fall I would like a few cuttings from your new coleuses. LOL I ordered from the Horn canna co-op, but so far I have resisted buying any coleuses. There's one day left, and I'm trying not to look any more. I wanted almost all of them, so it was too hard for me to decide on a few.
LOL. Pat, you are a stronger person than me. I ordered about a dozen. Isn't that funny? Here I am, about to go and bring in all the coleuses I JUST moved outside yesterday. Supposed to be close to freezing tonight. Yes, I sure needed to order a dozen more. :)
Tonight? I thought it was supposed to be 62 tonight. Just moved a bunch of stuff out of the shed and the greenhouse to hose off and water deep.
Yes, Christi, it's supposed to get down to 38 tonight sometime after midnight. Could have a freeze Sat night/Sun morning. Probably nothing to worry about for most things, but way too cold for coleus. :(
I guess I better go out and start draggin everything back in for the evening. Got four little helpers though. :) Better get my 'moneys worth' out of them. Stacey
Pat - that sounds like a great plan. I'll have plenty of coleus cuttings for the Fall RU. I'll make a note on my personal trade spreadsheet, but if I forget don't be shy about reminding me!
Sheila, when you have the chance, can you add my list to the top of the thread.
Done Anna.... Can't say I missed your list since I asked for something from it!!! LOL!
I think that weather we had the last few days was a cruel tease!!!
Thanks...yes, I am paying attention to the weather this w/e
Aardvark - can I get one of your Chlorophytum comosum variegata trades? Let me know if there's anything on my list you'd like.
Jenepat, sure I'll give you a couple of big ones! I've got to split so many plants and I hate to have to throw some in the compost pile because I just don't have anymore places to put them!
Anyone else want a variegated spider plant? :)
Hey Anna, Sorry for my late reply. My laptop is dead and I can only find a few seconds a day to check up. the roses you asked about are all big, big growers. Do you want to see your fence again?LOL... C. brunner is a 'house eater', I have it growing on the garage roof, I think it would be too big for a fence.... But if it's an ugly fence it will totaly hide it and then some.lol
C. Soupert gets 15-20 foot canes, I cut back all the new growth around the base each year because I want it to grow up on an arbor. By the end of the summer the base is about 4-5 feet wide. I think the base would get bigger if I let it go. Canes are semi upright and still flexible enough to attach to the top of a fence.
Sevin Sisters looks great on a fence, but only blooms once in the spring, when it does it's smothered in blooms for a few weeks. It doesn't have much base growth at all, it sends out 15-20 foot thin flexible canes. Looks great when all tied to the top of a fence line.
All of the above are very disease resistant. Hope this helps.
Ps, cut back your artimisia. lol
Aardvark - Thanks, I'll take as many as you're willing to give. :) I don't have anything like this yet, so I'm looking forward adding it to my patio/yard, etc. Please let me know if anything on my list interests you...
Jenepat, I have no cannas or daylillies (I know, how did I do that). I would love one though and if you have any that are orange or yellow, that would be fantastic.
Aardvark - this will be my first year growing both cannas and daylilies too! I will look through which ones I have that are supposed to be yellow or orange and will pick one of each out for you. (I say "supposed to be" b/c I haven't personally seen the bloom on them yet...just whatever pic the vendor/plantfiles has).
Thanks Jenepat - that sounds awesome! ;) The only things I have from a bulb are those little rain lillies and blue eyed grass that keep coming up everywhere!
Aardvark - how about this canna:
and this daylily?
cocoa_lulu, you are so funny! Love your descriptions. I hope your laptop recovers soon.
My fence is shared with my neighbor who has a trampoline with a net wall around it. I am afraid these hardy climbers might get out of hand.
Are you interested in the Fairy rose. It is very hardy(and thorny)I got these 2 extra b/c it layered itself.
Aardvark, I would like a spider plant. Look at my list. I also have some mislabeled DL. The package said Red Rum but they look a lot like Happy Returns. http://db.tinkersgardens.com/?script=3.1
Dennis. I have some extra pink salvia greggiis. That would work in part sun.
Who else wanted salvias?

Sheila, I would love one of the poppy breadseed plants. I hope it will transplant well enough to go to seed. Anything that I can interest you in?
Anna.... Have your name on a pot of the poppies. They are really tiny now but there is a lot of them. They don't transplant well so I would set out the bunch together this year. I will put in some extra seeds you can sew in the fall also. Can I get the yarrow moonshine from you please?
Sheila, are those poppy seedlings the kind you can use in baking? If so I might be interested in some. Are you still collecting daylilies? I have some to dig up if you want them for a trade.
Bananna, I am splitting and potting these guys today so I will pot one up for you. I would love to try one of your daylillies. I love yellows so that one will work out great for me. Thanks.
Stephanie...not sure on the poppy seed; they are from my Aunt's garden years and years ago. They appear to be the breadseed opium poppy, but I don't use them for cooking so I can't say for sure. Let me put your name on some; they are a bright punch in the garden. They bloom about the same time daisies and larkspurs do.
As for the daylily offer, I would take any color other than the orange.

aardvark7,will put you down for the daylily.
Sheila, thanks for the advice. I will keep them together. The moonshine yarrow is yours.
Anna, thanks for the fairy rose offer, I gotta pass tho. I got five of them on sale a few years back, three of them were mislabeled and turned out to be climbing fairies. I ignored them last year and they rooted everywhere they touched the ground! It's a great rose, someone should take you up on that trade. I'm not sure if I'm going to have any to trade, I'm passed that point and plan on taking a machete to that bed.lol
You will need some very thick clothing for that job.This may be a good plant to keep out deer! My poor dog got caught in a branch when I was trimming it.It really grabbed him.Maybe I will transplant it to under a window as a barrier.
Aardvark - great! I'll set those aside for you (canna & daylily).
Anna - I would love some pink salvia. Is there anything of mine I can put your name on?
