wanted: 6th annual charleston, sc plant swap

cactusrequiemFebruary 14, 2009

It's that time again folks! Charleston South Carolina 6th Annual Plant Swap. I can't believe this is our 6th year already!!

So without any further ado:



April 25th, 10am set-up and browse....11am swap...immediately afterwards...LUNCH!

This year we are having it at Park Circle in North Charleston, by the Gazebo. There are picnic tables, bathrooms and LOTS of room for kids to play and even more room for plants, parking and food.

Pretty much everybody in Charleston is familiar with Park Circle....there are numerous ways to get to it, depending on which way you are coming. If you want or need directions you can leave a posting, I will get it and respond ASAP.

The way we swap will be the same... the basic Free For All. I will say go, everybody will grab ONE (1) plant and take it to their hiding area. After everybody has a plant, we repeat the process. Nice and Simple!

We will have plates and napkins and such, Please bring your own drinks and food for as many as you can. We like to do a Pot Luck style picnic and encourage everybody to stick around and participate. The socializing afterwards is as much fun as the swap itself, please try to give yourself enough time to stay and enjoy yourself!

Please post here also if you know what you are going to bring. We won't end up with 15 types of Potato Salad that way.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Tell your friends, neighbors and anybody else you can think of....2009 will be the best Plant Swap YET in Charleston!

If you have a specific plant you want or have, feel free to post it here and we can set up the special swaps earlier, maybe at 10:30.

Happy Growing Folks! Get those seedlings and cuttings started!

I would love to attend, maybe someday. I live about 2 hours north of Charlotte NC. My DH and I are planning our first trip to Charleston this year at the end of May. If anyone would like to do a swap while we are there, or swap thru the mail, here's my list. I've been hosting swaps in my garden for years. Email me for a link to my garden photos, and I'd enjoy links to yours.

I live in Myrtle Beach; I would have driven down.

Does everyone get to pick a plant per the number they themselves bring? Just wondering how that works....
