EVERYONE: I An Wanting Experience Trading in this Group


Hi Everyone
I finally have the courage to try to make a trade...any trade...just to get started. When I first joined, I didn't understand the procedure. I have watched for a long time and reread many of the policies. So, I am going to give it a try. (Hopefully, this is the right place to post. Is this the public forum place? Once I know my way around, I'll do fine. I just need a little experience.)
Sincerely,
Dane Ann S-J

Welcome!
It would be great if you could give us some idea of what you grow, and what you have to trade! Best, Jude

Native floida plants to trade


I am trying to get started trading and thought I would post some of the native Florida Plants that I have growing on my woodland lot. I would love to trade for Shade-loving perennials and/or Perennial vegetables. I am willing to try plants, seeds or clippings.)

HERE'S WHAT I HAVE TO TRADE:
1. Fl. Native blackberry bushes
2. Sassafras seedlings
3. Creeping Charlie (Used on trellises or as shade ground-cover. Invasive. Beautiful colors in Fall.)
4. Spiderwort (2 spare clumps)
5. Wild Yams (Invasive in zone 8. AND the "air-potatoes" are poisonous. Beautiful tropical leaves.)
6. Mimosa trees (Various small sizes...Beautiful, but invasive in Florida.)
7. Anise Clippings

The Anise might not be the native species. The leaves are wonderfully aroumatic and it has small white flowers. It is NOT the edible variety.)

I also have a few herbs that have germinated, but they are way too small, now.


Thank you for any help you can give to help me get started.

Sincerely,
Dane Ann S-J

Do you have anything on your wish list . One can also add that you are open to things off of it. IE "tempt me". A good suggestion is to check your traders "Itrader" rating by clicking the number next to Itrader in the right hand corner of his entry. It gives you the number of trades, and when you click it you will find the ratings of weather people are satisfied or not.

A good way to start out is with seeds but I jumped right in with trading plants.

marasri Thank You


Marasri,
Thank you for your suggestion. I am open to suggestions. I mostly have shade. So, I would love flowering shade plants. I also have a sandy sunny spot without watering access besides nature. So, sunny dry plants would work. I don't have a lot of blooms out here...still amending soil. So, I'm stuck with starting with clippings and plants. I will soon look at some other lists and see if I have a few of this or that that I can swap...things others might want. I am so a newbie even though I have been a member for a long time. My first post was wrong...I got a message to read the policies and procedures....life was too busy. Finally, I did it and I want to start. I am finally BRAVE again! lol

Maura Regarding the Blue Agave Trade


I am interested in making a trade. I have a century plant that we could trade...or something from my meager list. I will be going to Gainesville on Tuesday. Is Jupiter near Gainesville? Let me know what you would like to trade for. This will be fun. We might have to use the mail...depending on size of the plant. I am assuming it is small.

Thanks,
Dane Ann S-J
