Swap Tread-May 16, 2009 La RU

Central, LA(Zone 8b)

Well it is time to start this thread of what we have to swap.

I had 5 trays of seedlings going and when they pressure washed my patio last week they pushed the trays up against the side of the porch and took the lids off. Of course this rain we had Thur night washed some of the pots completely out. No telling where I'll find those seedlings!!!!

Have fun!!!

Saint Francisville, LA(Zone 8b)

OK...I'm a newbie, so I need some explanation...what's with the "spots"? Do I "sign up" for a spot where I'm going to bring my plants to swap? How many should I plan on bringing? Any size requirements?

Ripley, MS

We usually save a spot to list what we have to bring, then all our offerings are in one place. I have put a few things on my spot all ready and if someone asks for those plants, I will have their name on the plant when I bring it.
There are no requirements--except please label the plants with the correct name, if you want to also put your name on it as from--that is nice too, so we can remember who gives us what.
Our group usually requires no trade, meaning, ask for whatever you want and we will bring it to you. Don't be shy--if someone lists a plant that is special, they will usually say, this is available for trade only, meaning they want a "special" plant back if you get it--lol
I hope this is clear as mud--lol

Saint Francisville, LA(Zone 8b)

No...I think it is clear...I use my "spot" online...then I can make adjustments to it. OK. I can do that!

I also have a huge row of iris that I can only name for you when they bloom, I do have pictures of all of them though. But I can't list the names and give them to you as named cause I don't know which is which untill they bloom for me. They do need to be divided though.

I also have some cannas that are going in the trash as soon as they start making themselves known, (mairn497)

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

LOL Thanks, that ain't half of it though

I had a bunch of bears black figs rooting in the GH but that's gone, I will have cuttings probably before the RU of 4 or 5 other figs, I may be able to take cuttings and root them before the RU. Their all named varieties. And this is if I can keep the Deer away from them long enough for them to grow out. We usually get our frosts too early for the fruit to ripen, unfortunately. I may have to dig one and keep it potted to get fruit off them

Booneville, MS

KA, I'd love some nepeta dropmore and the white monarda. I'll get my list up soon.


Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Got you down Terrye

I'm waiting a bit before posting the white flowering nepeta called snowdrop, it's small but if it gets bigger I'll be able to take cuttings off it too.

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

I would love to have some of the daffodil as well if you are able to save it,


Copperas Cove, TX(Zone 8b)

Kathy I want to come live in your yard, lol. Hopefully will know in the next couple of weeks if I can make it.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Really? I'll put you to work !! LOL I've been out there all morning.

Booneville, MS

Does anyone have rhubarb? I have looked in the box stores and seed stores and cannot find plants or seeds. I think it is a perennial. Do you buy it as a plant or by seed?


Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

our walmart has it, want me to pick some up for you? There's only one plant in each container. I'm not sure on the cost of them. or what kind it is. going back to town friday , I can check for you. I saw them there today but didn't want any for myself. I do have some growing, new plant last fall
