|Mods if you feel this thread is inappropriate go ahead and delete.|
I've been trying to look through the plant lists but to no avail so I thought it might be useful to start a thread for fall trades.
To start, I'm looking for the following:
KEEP ON LOOKIN'
I am going to be dividing:
KEEP ON DREAMIN
If anyone is interested in working out a trade, feel free to tree mail!

|Why don't we give this a try, JWWC.|
I changed the thread title to 2013 Fall trades Aug 26 thru Sept 8. Anyone can list a daylily "want" list and a "for trade" list. Trades need to be arranged by tree mail between traders. No, down-sizing sales or other sales listings, this thread will be only for daylily trades or daylilies for postage. Down-sizing and regular sales listings belong in the Co-ops, group buys and classifieds. I did set a date of Aug 26 thru Sept 8, this will hopefully give everyone time to list and make trades, make payment for shipping if needed, then ship and receive the plants. Everyone is responsible for their own trades and the terms of the trade. On Sept 9 we'll consider the trading done and I'll lock the thread from posting. If this works out, meaning I don't hear any grumbles.... maybe we can do it in the spring too.

|Only looking for one right now, Wispy Rays, if anyone is dividing, either for postage or for something on my trade list.|

|This is a great idea and a very comfortable time span.|
I started to divide lilies I planted three years ago to make room for some that I just ordered.
I'll add my list of "have to share" sometime this weekend.

|I was cleaning up some stuff in the yard today. I have 3 small prolifs (2 on ABILENE Lillian and 1 on green arrow). First one to tell me can have them in exchange for some good karma.|

|Hope we all get some rain!! Tired of this 95-100 degree weather. Here's to a great fall, if you have green arrow prolif still i would gladly take it off your hands. Will mail check for my order on Tuesday. Kim|

|Kim, I might - will let you know shortly. The prolifs are spoken for.|

|Thank you for posting doglover! Our first "fall trade" thread appears to have been a success. Last night I was about to lock this thread when I stopped wanting to post a few questions today instead...|
Did everyone have a good time trading? Were you pleased with your trades?
If we were to do a Spring 2014 Trade Thread when would everyone like to start? Is March to early? Or April to late?

|I'd like to hear how the trading went - did you all simply pay postage, or were there actual trades flying past each other in the mail? Did you trade the same kind of plant or a few daylilies for a shrub or a few hosta? I'm so curious! I couldn't get organized soon enough to participate, but it sounded like a lot of fun! Curious minds want to know.|
Sep 10, 2013 3:14 PM CST
|I will post more later - but yes I had a good experience!|
Sep 10, 2013 4:56 PM CST
|I started the thread so I am happy to post my experiences and answer the questions that have been posted.|
First - I appreciate the Char (and Daylily) letting us try this.
I traded daylilies for daylilies; daylilies for other perennials (peonies, TB iris and some others) and ended up selling a few fans of a plant that I was dividing anyway. I am very happy with my trades (and I hope those on the other end were as well!)
For the trades that were plants for plants, yes, we just paid postage for the individual boxes. We went back and forth a few times via tree mail to pin down the details but it all seemed to go relatively smoothly and ultimately (I hope) worked out in everyones favor). Personally, I have a lot of plants that I love and may not have every ordered because early on people were kind and generous so I tried to approach this with the same mindset - I was shipping boxes with things I generally would have shipped to my mother. In fact, she got the leftovers from a couple clumps.
With regard to Spring, I would likely be willing to participate but the timing is a little harder to pin down. March is typically too early but the very end of March or early April would probably work. At least in this neck of the woods.
