Malvern Plant Swap

Postby pigletwillie » Thu Apr 06, 2006 10:07 pm

As we have a Malvern menu thread, I thought it prudent to start a Malvern Plant swap thread.

Will any of you guys want any:-

tomatoes (various)
sweet peppers (various)
Chillis (various)
aubergines
onion seedlings (various)
Rosemary plants (small)
Black currants (1st year)
Calendula

More to follow when I know what will be surplus.

Tigger, yours are banked so dont worrit.

Hi Piglet, you can book me in for a willie chilli as previously discussed. Can you let me know which, if any, chillies you wanted off me?

Thankyou Piglet - I'm banking on them.

I should have:

Cucumbers (indoors and outdoors).
Gherkins.
Sweetcorn.
Various herbs.
Various annual flowers.
Possibly some perennial flowers.

At the speed of growth this week, I could also have some tomatoes, different types to yours Piglet.

Plus whatever else romps away.....

Chanters, do you want some 1st year blackcurrants?

Can I bag a tepin off you as mine were a no show.

Certainly you can have a Tepin, possibly even 2 or 3 as they are still germinating. Do you want any of the others? I have quite a few Explosive Ember although they are tiny at present, they show good promise. I have loads of Peperoncino too - Tigger, are you reading this, do you want any of these?

How many blackcurrents are we talking about here? I already have 14 bushes but may manage to squeeze in a few more.

Of course!

Lyndon says we'll have to go in his van to get everything there and to bring the swaps back. He could be right!

46 Chantal, no actually only two, but there yours if you want them. A couple of tepin would be good, I have pepericino so no to them but one or two hot little buggers would be grand. Do you want a couple of Red hot cherry?

OK, go on then, I can squeeze in another two blackcurrents, oooh I'm so easy to persuade. I'd love a couple of Red Hot Cherry please and I'll bring what I can spare of the Tepin for you and Tigger to fight over. I'll be bringing whatever I have spare in the chilli and tomato dept, I can always bring left overs home again if they're not needed.

malvern plants

Postby seedling » Tue Apr 25, 2006 3:02 pm

I have now bought my ticket for Malvern and am looking forward to seeing those of you who are going along. Plant wise I would love some chilli pepppers to keep hubbie happy and some sweet pepper plants if anyone has any spare. I`ve got more sprouting onion sets than I can shake a stick at if anyone is interested.Other than that I dont really have much to offer as I am new to veg growing.

Does anybody have any spare "proper" parsley they could bring to Malvern? I have flat-leaved parsley but not the curly stuff. In addition, any sweet Basil will be gratefully received. Thanks.

Thanks very much Tigger. Piglet's just gone off to work (damn shame!) but I know he will be delighted. I, on the other hand, wonder if anyone has a tiny bit of coriander to spare. Piglet doesn't like it so doesn't think it's worth squeezing in anywhere, but I absolutely love it but not worth growing tons of it just for me.


Seedling - in which part of the country do you live? You will have to exchange with us lot so we can arrange to meet up with you in Malvern :D

Hi Mrs P, Seedling is a neighbour of mine on the plot and we'll be travelling together so there will be no problem with ID. :D

I have loads of sweet peppers, basil, curly parsley just coming through and chillis so I'll bring whatever I have. I daresay a certain Seedling will be doing a raid before you lot get a look in though... Don't worry, there's plenty to go round. I can't help with the coriander though, I loathe the stuff.
