Anyone in the Treasure Coast area of Florida interested in a plant exchanges or would like a rooted cutting of something I have that you don't?

I'm going to prune my Barbados Cherry, Mulberry and Dragon Fruit soon and I'm potting up the cuttings for friends, co-workers and maybe a few guerrilla runs.

Also have Surinam Cherry I can take cuttings of but I haven't had the opportunity to try one as the local raccoon keeps the shrub well groomed. I assume they are stellar.

Hello Glenn,

You seem to be in close proximity to my farm in Fellsmere.  I have been trying to grow what ever I can find here to allow my family to eat healthier foods the past couple of years food forest style on my 5 acres.  My main focus has been on perennial plants that can easily be propagated and shared via cuttings, divisions, bulbs, seeds, etc.  I have a lot growing thanks to loads of mulch I have gotten over the years.  Let me know what you are interested in and if I have anything useful  I have no problem in sharing or trading.  Even if it is simply knowledge or experience.  All the best either way.

Hi Frank, fellsmere  it not very far I'm in southwest  Palm Bay. May be we can help each other or trade. I've been gardening for 20 year here although I have only been on this lot a couple of years. I'm trying to get a load of mulch now the soil on this lot is sand and has never been worked before I came along. So far I have put in a lot of fruit trees,set up a veggie bed witch I just dug out and put in logs and bio char then put my crappy sand back on top. I'm building a key hole garden on top of that and hope to have it ready soon. I'm just now moving to perennial vegetables having never did that other than asparagus. Just to let you know I cloned mulberries this year and have some for trade if you want. Looking forward to seeing if there is something we can do.

Glenn, 

Seeing that we are practically neighbors I'm sure we can work something out.  I have not really grown much in the line of annual crops here since they require more care than I am able to give them currently.  Would be interested in learning from some of your 20 years of experience in gardening here in Florida.  I am growing as many of varieties of mulberry as I can get my hands on since they seem to thrive here with little care.  Not sure how they all taste though as yet since most are very young.  Would be interested in learning what variety you have in case I don't have it.  But even if I do will still share what I can.  Purple moosage contact info so the whole world doesn't get it and we can move forward from there.   Thanks for your response.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
