have: new thread on spring 2006 swap - bham/no al

roseyp8255(z8 - SC AL)February 18, 2006

Okay folks. Since iVillage is evidently having PROBLEMS with their server or something, here is a new thread ref: the spring swap - as well as a link to the old thread that is WAY out of order!

For those of you who have asked for details on swaps(somewhere, before they moved everything this week) - the swap is where we meetat a physical location, have lunch, and swap plants. Last year was my first one, had a blast, met everyone in PERSON, and got great plants, plus got rid of some too!

For you newbies - create/update your trade list, and look at other people's trade lists (on the "MY Page" for each person. Most people do pre-arranged trades i think, but then everyone also brings extras STUFF.

Literllay - last year - we couldn't see out the back of my SUV it was so full with what TweetyPye & I were bringing home.

Oh yes, and i think there is normally one in Bham, as well as a Southern Swap down around Mobile. And, we are talking about having one in Central AL, maybe in the fall.

Did we ever officially decide on whether it is gonna be 4/29 or 5/6? Will it be Oak Mountain again? Etc., etc.

Hi All! I see a lot of votes for the last weekend of April and the first weekend of May. I also see a lot of folks that cannot come those very same weekends. How about May 20 or April 22? I would say May 13, but selfish me would be out of town that weekend. Would either of those dates accomodate everyone better?

I hope to see you all soon,
Deb

I like May 20th. Let's try a later swap and see how it works out. The later the better for me because I will have more stuff up and growing which I can swap. April is a busy month for me because I am pulling stuff out of the greenhouse, repotting, fertilizing and generally preparing for the growing season. I begin the first of April and my goal is to finish repotting by May 1. - Terry

May 20th is fine for me, any date other than 4\29. I like the later date also because more stuff will be coming up and easier to find.

Rosey...First let me thank you for posting this link since the 'exchanges' thing seems to be out.

It's been about 2 years since I attended a trade with this forum. And I can't wait to do this!! I have so much more to trade with than I did back then. I will go update my trade list right now.

A few examples are....yellow asiatic lilies
mexican sage
pink yarrow
'moonshine' yarrow
'paprika' yarrow
creeping jenny
all sorts of canna.
the kind with big blooms

Lots of different kinds of seed as well

Rosey,
Any date is fine with me. I recently moved back from Mississippi and don't have a lot to trade. I attended last Spring's swap & look forward to seeing everyone at this swap. Please check my list to see if there is anything of interest. I will be updating it as time moves on.

I did not get to go to the fall swap with my husband being in the hospital. I had set up trades and will bring them to the spring swap.
Jill -- bring blue hosta for white amaryllis

Susan -- bring cinnamon iris for variegated sedum
Sharon -- bring Scheffelera, spider basket, bromeliad for decorated bowling ball
Nelson -- Coreopsis and tropical from Michelle for blk iris

Terry -- bring crocosmia & fern (RoseMary has the planters

If I've forgotten anything promised please let me know. Deb, you mentioned something when we were at your house but I can't remember what it was!!!! Remind me so I can dig it for you.
The only one I have set up so far for the spring swap is Nelson so please just let me know if any of you want something I have. I'm going to update the list later as I go through all the flower beds and check the shrubs. I want to bring rooted plants not cuttings. I'm already finding things I forgot about!!!
