WANTED: How do you really feel about swaps?
I meant to pose this question while actually at the swap. I am writing an article about our swaps and swaps in general and I was wanting input on how you think swaps affect your shopping habits, your propagation skills, etc. Do you think of it more as a social event or is it all about the plants?
For me - swaps are a great way to try new plants. If it does well and I want more of it I won't hesitate to buy some for the yard. It is nice to see what other area gardeners are succeeding with and to see people fight over something I brought to the party. So even though the plants are free I don't think it slows down my shopping for plants but it does seem to refine what I spend money on.
How about you???
