HAVE: bleeding heart seeds, poppy seeds

posted by: wispfox on 07.11.2013 at 01:37 pm in Seed Exchange Forum

I have both pink and white bleeding heart seeds, although I have no idea if the white ones are viable. I've only noticed that seedlings have turned to pink ones, but I also have _lots_ more of the pink variety and have only been here 2.5 years.

I also have a smaller variety of orange poppy seeds, and could also collect a larger variety, same color. The smaller variety appears to have longer stems for the flowers, but smaller flowers and leaves.


she has a few plant I would like.

HAVE: Free for Postage

posted by: bari26 on 04.23.2011 at 02:19 pm in Iris Forum

I'll be having some more iris rhizomes to give away this year for postage. I don't really want a trade (unless somebody insists that's the only way). I dig around July 4th and it takes about two weeks for me to get them ready. What I'll probably have are: Violet Harmony, Study in Black, Betty Frances, Thorn Bird, Yellow NOIDs, White NOIDS, Pink NOIDS; Loreley (from a trade and I have to admit, I really like this iris); Crimson King (also from a trade); Gingerbread Man (SDB) and maybe Reminiscence (MTB) depending on how it grows this year..... If anybody is interested, let me know (hopefully my email address on my profile is working this time).


save just in case need irises

RE: Bee balm seeds....i dont see where they come from! (Follow-Up #2)

Your plants may not produce seeds because they are sterile hybrids. The easiest way to collect the seed is to allow the flowers to mature and dry out on the plant. Then cut the flowers leaving as little stem as possible and put them inside a brown paper bag. The seed will collect at the bottom.


explanation great!

wanted: have: charlotte spring plant swap 2013- april 21

Charlotte Spring Plant Swap 2013
SUNDAY, April 21, 2-4pm
Shelter #3, Park Road Park, Charlotte, NC

For first time swappers - we don't care if you have weeds (natives) or high dollar orchids. If you have plants to give away and want them to go to good homes, this is the place to be. We trade anything and everything. If you don't have much, don't worry - we don't have rules about that either. Hopefully everyone will go home with more than they brought! Other gardening stuff is also welcome- pots, books, magazines, potting soil, tools, statues, etc.

Please label your plants. Something simple like "yellow daylilies" or "cactus houseplant" or "shade ground cover". This will make it easier to know where to plant the new plants we take home!

How it works: You show up early and place your plants in with all the other plants (there are no sections - we do this on purpose). You find a spot away from the shelter where you can stash the plants you grab during the swap. I will stand up and welcome everyone to the swap and ring a bell. You get to grab ONE plant and take it to your stash zone. We do this two or three times before we change it to TWO plants per ring and then THREE plants and finally we have a free-for-all where everyone wrestles for the leftovers. Then we break into the food! If you have something that is extra special you may choose to arrange a "Special Trade" with someone. Special trades are handled before and after the general swap to avoid confusion.

After the swapping is over, we'll sit down to enjoy a potluck meal/snack with our new friends, so please bring a dish to share along with your plants. In lieu of a dish, you could bring paper plates, napkins, cups, ice, etc, just post here what you're bringing so we don't have too many. Also, if you are inclined, you can leave a small donation toward the renting of the shelter.

Park Road Park is located near the corner of Park Road and Tyvola Road. Directions: from I-77, take exit 5 for Tyvola Road, turn east as if you're going to South Park Mall, go 2.5 miles, turn right onto Park Road (at AutoBell), take the first right onto Closeburn Road, which is also the park entrance, then take the first left into a long parking lot and shelter #3 is at the end of the parking lot. The small #3 on the shelter is hard to see. If you find yourself at a playground, you're at the wrong end of the park. :)


for next year
