garden_hands_feetJuly 27, 2006

Greetings Fellow Gardeners!

I am hosting a plant swap meet at my home in Winter Park on Saturday, October 21st from 9:00am - 3:00pm. Bring plant cuttings, seeds, plants and your best gardening spirit along with a chair, some food and snacks to share (I plan on having the BBQ ready to "receive.") If you would like a fun "side trip," Harry P. Leu Gardens and Mead Garden are both 1/2 miles from my home. I have started an e-list of folks who have expressed an interest to attend. Please, let me know if you are coming. You can e-mail me at I will send out updates along the way and detailed directions right before the event. This is my first plant swap and I aim for success!

We are well on our way to a fun, successful Plant Swap on the 21st of October. So far, about 15 folks are attending, with the date still more than two months in the future. I have been as busy as a bee potting plants and starting seeds. My offerings, so far, will be heirloom tomato & pepper plants, some herb plants, a couple kinds of kenafs, some ruellia and a few Sago palm pups. I am starting some cuttings of "Blue Sky," thunbergias, some pink and some red mandevilla vines and some purple "Poor ManÂs Orchids," epidendrums. My husband, Bruce, is busy seeding more African tulip trees, eucalyptus citridoria and pineapple guavas. Plant freaks R Us! Anyone have water gardens? We may have a couple of extra lotus plants. Keep spreading the word and see you soon, Diana

It will be a fabulous plant swap, as we Floridians know how to share plants, eat and have a good time. You always go home wiht lots more plants than you bring. Newbies are welcome and if you do not have anything to trade, please come anyway and meet your fellow gardeners. It is a wonderful opportunity to get to put faces to the names you see on the Florida Forum. Diana is doing a great job organizing and now I want a pineapple guava and some eucalyptus and uh well uh I want it all. *g* See you all there we even welcome people from other states if you would like to come and have a blast with us. We are known as the people who have car keys will travel. Heading to another swap down the state the next day. Oh life is good. Live on plants Live on. Linda
