Raleigh Gardeners

I usually hang out at the Wintersowing forum. Do any of you in Ral wintersow? This will be my second year. Do you ever visit each other's gardens? I see I missed the plant swap. I kept a lookout for an announcement but missed it. Was it posted on a calendar somewhere? Does anyone here do a seed swap? Would love to see other gardens and meet other local gardeners.

Linda Jo - The Raleigh Swaps are posted over on the 'Exchanges' sub-forum here on Carolina Gardening Forum. Sometimes it gets a heads up message on the main forum, sometimes it doesn't. We sometimes have a winter seed & bulb swap - it all depends on the interest level. These last two summers have been brutal weather wise so the swaps have been low turnout. I imagine that once the weather turns around things will pick up.

I only wintersow in a minor way. I got tired of dealing with a million seedlings in the spring and my garden is pretty full. Right now I only have two flats of delphinium seeds outside along with a few oddball fruit seeds that need a chill period.

I think that lots of folks here wintersow. I know that Tammy and I used to. I didn't last year, but I will this year. I am interested in a seed swap in January.

I never got around to it last year, either. Hoping to this go round. Seed swap in Jan sounds good to me. I don't think we had one last yr did we??

I would be interested in a seed swap. I have some interesting seeds from my travel in India.

Me too. I've lived in the triangle for four yrs and am now finally not travelling all the time and am looking to link into the gardening community here.
