I've thought about that as a themed bed, too. There is Captain Picard (Peat, 2006) and Live Long and Prosper (Marchant, 2014). that I added this year. I'm sure there are more.

Now that I have moved to Virginia, I am still looking to make that Star Trek garden. If any of you have any plants associated with this garden please contact me. I have no plants to trade as I left them all back in Pennsylvania. I am very upset I could not bring them with me.
I have to start from scratch with my whole garden.

So sorry you couldn't bring your flowers with you, Dawn. I hope you have a large place to start a fresh new palette of color. I can think of several plants that I would really hate to leave behind.

I don't grow any plants with a Star Trek name. Good luck in your search Smiling

I don't have any either, sorry.

There are iris with star trek themed names also if you like those.

I moved and started over and it was the pits. That was like 7 years ago, I spent 2 years moving around (rented, moved and rented again, bought) and then spent 2 years cleaning up the new property so I could even start something and now still combating poor soil, horribly invasive weeds, and lack of water. Sad Of course I'm still waiting to win the lottery I don't buy tickets for Green Grin! and so

moral of story is, don't move. But if you have to, work on your soil even if it means having to wait a year or two to plant. Because trying to plant in it and then realizing it needs more work than you thought, it is really hard to try to get rid of invasive weeds ect after it is planted up. I wish I had spent more time working on that before moving my plants in.

You might try Wilds. If I had to put a number to it, I'd say 1 out of 5 that I ordered from them (in the past, I no longer order from them) was labeled incorrectly. But, the plants are pretty affordable, so a few losses is not too bad. You can always sell/trade those or give them to friends. Maybe they have some star trek names you can at least get started with, so you don't have to spend much for right now. There are some other places too that have older really affordable varieties.
