Just wondering if anyone on here would like to trade a box of plants. Maybe we could post a wish list and others could chat about if they have one available.

Sounds like fun, but I think I'll wait and see what this spring brings...we've had a very mild winter, so not sure what to expect when things start coming up! I saw new growth on one of my clematis Saturday! Crazy weather...

I am definitely ready for spring! Placing a few orders and making my list for things that have to be moved...Not that they will all get moved, but at least I'm makin' a list!

Rose, what do you divide your hosta with? I have a few that I would like to spread around. It just seems so brutal to put a spade to them but that is my way so far.

I dig up the whole plant and use a serrated knife to saw them apart.

I know with daylilies sometimes you can pry their roots apart. One gal said to use a screwdriver lol. I do have a garden knife that would be good to use.

Rose, how many do you grow?
I am putting mine in my plantstep and I am up to 51. That surprized me. If I had more shade it would be much higher! Love the little ones now.

Here is my dl collection, I wish you could upload the iris and hosta pics too.

WOW! That's quite a collection. You must have a beautiful yard! We live in sand, so I don't have a lot of luck with sun-loving plants.

I have over 600 varieties of hostas, so I don't think I should get started collecting daylillies! I'm sure that would be another obsession!

You live in sand? Yes, I also like iris and many other perennials. I only wish I had a few more trees. I think it is such a relaxing place to be with mature hosta.

Do you live near Lake M? I thought IL had fertile soil.

No, we live on the banks of the Mississippi River. Where I used to live had beautiful black dirt, but it's a lot easier digging in this sand! Harder to keep it watered, though!

Did they plant trade get started somewhere?

Some of my hosta are beginning to unfurl! To early, I hope they don't get bitten!

NJBob, I was on the data base and saw you had posted a pic of Raspberry Sundae. Do you grow it? I bought it at the Nashville Lawn and Garden show. I gave it to my older sister who has a very nice shade garden. Mine is more sunny!

Teresa and Rose -

I just put a post on for the Heuchera (and other) swap, and I sent Teresa a Treemail about her hostas - I'd certainly be interested in some fun hostas, but I doubt I'd have any varieties that you two don't already have! If you're interested in swaping for other stuff, I do have a list on Dave's Garden. My member name over there is just JenDion if you want to look and see if anything interests you!

Happy Spring!

Jennifer

Jennifer,

My hosta list is on Dave's Garden in my journal. I use the same name over there.
