Bulb and Seed Exchanges / BX 489 CLOSED
November 21, 2022, 09:57:45 PM
All: You'll do me a favor and read this post/email in its entirety prior to ordering, won't you?  So we will have no confusion for ordering and your boxes can get out to you much more quickly?  I'll be grateful and especially thankful this week if you do. 

I will begin by acknowledging the late date for a BX.  Many of our members growing bulbs are on the west coast and I feel comfortable with making the offer.  My intention is to get this out the door on Saturday.  Therefore, this BX will be open until Wednesday at 9 p.m. PST. 

Any and all misspellings are entirely mine.  I needed to get the post up and did the best I could.  Should you find a necessary correction, feel free to make a post on the forum.  Jane isn't available today to check my list prior to posting, which is our normal protocol.
Standard rules apply for this BX:

Kindly review the list below and email me (do not reply to this email) with your request(s) to bulbexpbs@gmail.com.
I will send a simple acknowledgement of your email.  Should you not have a response from me within a day, please resend.

Be sure to include your full name and current address.

Bulbs are $3 each.  Some of these are only one share and in short supply.

This will be a lottery (however, if you did not receive something last round, kindly advise and I will try to assure some accommodation. Also, if there is something you really are looking to receive, it helps for me to know this as well.)

You must be current in your membership and you must be up-to-date on BX/SX charges. If you are uncertain, feel free to check with Jane McGary or Arnold Trachtenberg.

KINDLY NOTE:

Payments should no longer be made through the Paypal website due to changes in Paypal policies. PBS must be paid through the PBS website at: https://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbsforum/index.php?page=BXpay

You are still free to send payment via check if that is your preference.

No orders to anywhere but the US and (sometimes) Canada can be entertained at this point.  We cannot furnish the appropriate phyto docs to other countries.

This BX will be open until Wednesday, November 23 9:00 p.m.(PST).
My email to the membership list includes two attachments with donor notes from Rimmer and Jim.  Due to my technological limitations, I am unable to attach pdfs of the documents hereto due to some space constraints.  May try to make an addendum post to the forum with those documents tomorrow.

Thank you to our current donors.

Bulb and Seed Exchanges / Request for BX Donations
October 16, 2022, 05:41:54 PM
All:
It has come to my attention that now might be a good time for donations of amarylids as folks might be repotting for winter.  Should you have any extras, I will turn them around quickly if you can send to me very soon.  I could take gesneriads at this time too, if they are still dormant or of a size that they will not be too resentful of being unpotted for a couple of weeks.

Thanks in advance,
Bridget

BX 486 is now open for orders! 
I will leave the ordering window open through the end of this week and will close on Friday, September 30, 2022 at 11:00 p.m. PST. The closure will be announced on the list and forum. This will be a lottery so everyone has an equal opportunity to get the most desired items.

Only current, up-to-date members may order from this exchange. If you are unsure about your membership status kindly contact Jane McGary at janemcgary@earthlink.net.  Likewise, you will need to be up-to-date on any money owed for previous orders. You can check with Arnold Trachtenburg at arnold140@verizon.net if you are unsure if you are current on orders made.

You are not required to be a donor to make an order, but please do consider donating if you have extras of your bulbs.  It's fine if you only have a few to spare!

Please review and take note of the following as it will streamline the distribution process:

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS LIST WHEN ORDERING.  You will need to send me an email separately at bulbexpbs@gmail.com.  Please be sure provide me with your full name and shipping address. I will make a brief acknowledgement of receipt of your email.

Additionally, when you make your order, it would be most helpful if you list the item number and bulb name.  It makes it much easier for me to match up orders.

Bulbs are $3 per portion. Very big or very rare bulbs may be more expensive. Postage is added to your order at cost.  If you are allotted an order, you will receive a box with a small slip of paper with your total due.  Donors, your postage credit will be deducted from your total due.

Payments for the BX may be through a check sent directly to Arnold or on the PBS Bulb Exchange webpage with the PayPal link. Please go to the bottom of the Bulb Exchange page and fill in the payment form at https://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbsforum/index.php?page=BXpay

It will be most helpful if you reference the BX number when you make the payment.
 
Any questions may be directed to me at the bulbexpbs@gmail.com email.

This BX open for 36 hours (that's 2:00 am EST and 11:00 pm PST Monday/Sunday) - they leave my possession on Monday morning.
Standard rules apply: It's a lottery. You will get a reply from me acknowledging your request, but it will be just two words: "got it".  I spend a bit of time trying to sound friendly and I am, but it slows me down when I receive 50+ emails.  I beg your indulgence on this one.

You must be current on membership and any exchange fees you owe.  If you are unsure, email Jane McGary (janemcgary@earthlink.net) for membership questions and Arnold Trachtenberg (arnold140@verizon.net) for exchange fees potentially due.  

Send me an email to bulbexpbs@gmail.com and tell me what you are interested in.  I need your full name and full address.  
I know some folks will miss this email, it's the weekend, etc, but I won't usually need to move things this quickly.

A quick note, we have a few new members and that makes me very happy (as several of them are folks I know)  New members: feel free to email me if you have extras of things to share.  Even if it's just a few.  I assume we will have a larger BX sometime in the next couple months as summer growers go down.  In the interim, if you have something, keep us in mind. 

Only two things on offer this go-round:

1. Haemanthus albiflos  (a dozen or so small offsets with big potential!)
2. Cyrtanthus mackenii
(red) (another dozen or so - small but healthy)

Thanks and have a super rest of your weekend.
Bridget

All, 
Great participation for this quick BX.  
Nearly everything was spoken for.  Obviously, some things were very popular and in short supply.
There are several folks who did not get any of the choices they requested.  I regret there wasn't enough of the pelargonium to go round (only 1) and there was lots of interest in the calostemma and crossyne but very few of them as well. If you didn't get any of your picks this round, do remind me next time you order and I will make an effort to assure you receive something you're after.  Yes, it's a lottery, but I want all our members to benefit.

I sent half the boxes out today and the balance will go tomorrow.  
If you don't receive a box in the next week, you likely didn't get your choice(s). I keep an eye on the tracking so I can see if packages were delivered. If anything appears to be lost in transit, I will advise the recipient.
Thanks and have a super weekend.
Bridget

Bulb and Seed Exchanges / Pop Up BX 483
August 09, 2022, 02:16:38 PM
In an effort to keep things moving right along with the BX, here we are with a pop up right after the last boxes have gone out in the mail from the most recent BX.
Same rules apply: you must be current in your membership, you should have any outstanding BX or SX fees up to date and this will be a quickie, as boxes are going out by this weekend.  This offer will be open for a two days (until 6:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Thursday evening, the 10th of August.)
Some items I only have a single bulb, the alliums are in great quantity.  
You need to email me at Bulbexpbs@gmail.com with a list of your picks as well as your full name and address.  I will acknowledge your email within 24 hours.

Please be advised that I will be listing a BX (with lots of fabulous things) this weekend.  I am hoping to have the list together Friday night (Eastern Standard Time). If you sent a donation and I did not acknowledge same, kindly contact me asap.

Also, please assure that you are up-to-date on your membership and/or outstanding fees for the Exchanges as we cannot send items to folks with outstanding balances.

Thanks!

Bulb and Seed Exchanges / Pop Up BX 482.i
July 11, 2022, 08:36:12 PM
Hi Everyone:
I have received a donation of things that cannot wait for BX 482 in a couple weeks.
Member Amy Olmstead has sent the following:

Giganteum.jpg
1. Sauromatum giganteum (10). I have attached a picture of mine in flower.

2. Juvenile amorphophallus konjac corms beginning to break dormancy (7) and


Cyrtanthus.jpg
3. Cyrtanthus sp.- in active growth (approximately- 15)  Unsure of species, attaching picture. This was a pass-along plant Amy received from someone's patch that has been extant for 30 years or so.

Kindly email me at BulbexPBS@gmail.com with your order.  I intend to get these shipped by Friday, July 15, and will take orders until Thursday at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.  This offer is open to members who are in good standing and I regret that I cannot ship to countries that require a phytosanitary certificate.

Thank you,
Bridget Wosczyna

Hello, Everyone,

I had quite an experience with the first big BX I handled and I learned a lot. A LOT.
It went fairly smoothly and some hiccups occurred but overall, I hope most folks were satisfied.

I have taken a breather, attended to my garden and am advised by a few donors that it's time for another.  I admit I am happy about this as it has been my desire to get us back to more frequent BXs. 

Therefore, kindly take stock and send me your extras! The deadline for donations will be Sunday July 17. If you have things that you wish to send, but cannot get to them timely (vacations, etc, I understand.  Please send along afterward but do advise me that you are sending (bulbexpbs@gmail.com) so I can keep an eye out; I'm not opposed to small BXs in between seasonal offerings).  I plan on posting a list the following weekend.  I still have some dormant bulbs from the last BX and will offer them as well. 

I hope everyone is enjoying summer. 
Best,
Bridget

The flies are common enough but I've not seen ants visiting arum inflorescences previously.
The garden is quite ripe at the moment but it's a lovely plant.

Hello Bridget and Canadian members

I don't recall ever seeing a post about Canadians participating in the Bulb
Exchanges and have assumed that this is not possible.
Can someone please confirm whether this is the case, or what the protocols
are?

Cheers,
