Redwillow, I am interested in your bamboo Phylloatachys 'Golden Groove w/Blue nodes'
All I have that is on your want list is seeds for Lotus Nelumbo 'Giant Sunburst'
Posted: May/22/2009 12:29 AM PST
I'm sorry, I don't have either of those lilacs, unfortunately. I've had the primrose one on my wishlist for several years! I do have a repeat flowering little-leaf lilac, Syringa microphylla. It blooms later than the common lilacs, MUCH more profusely, and blooms off and on until autumn.
I have lots of organic catnip and my five best friends of feline persuasion and I are happy to share it! You must definitely have some plants of it. To get more plants to harvest for drying for winter, just let a few of the plants go to seed. Here in zone 6, they reseed politely, not invasively, and with more plants, I can indulge the kitties in the flowers - they go crazy over them!
I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Busterb! I have a large grove of the bamboo, so you're welcome to plenty. I hate to sound thick, but are most of the items you listed seeds? Could you clarify for me which are plants, cuttings and seeds, please? I just don't want to make assumptions and thought it easier to ask.
You've got a great list of veggies. I'd love some of your seeds for my farmer's market stall next year.
How hardy is your yellow clumping bamboo? I'm in zone 6 with some seriously protected microclimates. Could you describe its growth habits (how tall, how thick the culms get, etc.) for me, or if it's easier, just let me know the genus and species, and I'll look it up. It sounds lovely!
Let's keep in touch,
Posted: May/22/2009 1:01 AM PST
Hello John! I'm familiar with "Perry's Giant Sunburst" and would love seeds from it. You're quite welcome to a box of bamboo - I have far more than I need.
Let's work out the details of the trade when you're able...I look forward to hearing from you!
