Central Indiana Fall Plant Swap 2010

Sunday, September 19, 2010, 2:00 pm

Holliday Park, 6363 Spring Mill Road, Indianapolis, IN 46260

PLEASE tell all your gardening friends, family, and colleagues! WeÂre having the Central Indiana Fall Plant Swap on September 19.

The Spring Event was so successful, that we decided to add the Fall Plant Swap.

We are encouraging gardeners to participate!

THE DETAILS

Date: Sunday, September 19, 2010

Time: 2:00 pm

Location: Holliday Park, 6363 Spring Mill Road, Indianapolis, IN 46260

Directions inside the park: Once you enter the park take an immediate left. Then pull into the first parking lot on the right. We will be under the giant sycamore tree. You can bring tables, chairs and plants to share.

MINUMUM REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PLANT SWAP:

- You must bring at least one dozen (12) plants  some people bring more than 50.

- At least two (2) varieties of plants  try to bring one plant that is extra special.

- All plants need to be clearly identified with plant name and care --

(Examples: HOSTA: Halcyon, Shade. * DAYLILLY: Happy Returns, Sun)

- For best results plants should NOT be dug up and divided that day. Allow a week or two of special care, to make sure the potted plants are not stressed from being dug up.

TRADING MATERIALS

Perennials well rooted cuttings potted up, bulbs, shrubs, happy seedlings, garden ornaments, extra gardening implements, gardening magazines and books, etc.

You can also print out pictures of the mature plants during peak bloom times. You can go to an online nursery that sells the plants and paste the care instructions into a document.

HOW IT WORKS

We will do the swap in the ROUND ROBIN Format  it works well for this group, and is a lot of fun:

*Round One - pick one plant *Next Round - pick one plant *Next Round - pick two plants *Next Round - pick two plants *Next Round - pick three plants *Next Round - pick four plants *And so on . . . This way everyone gets a chance to get some of the plants they really have on eye on. This works well and other swaps have had great success with it in the past. Everyone should be able to take home as many plants as they bring.

KEEP IT SIMPLE, HAVE FUN, MEET FELLOW GARDENERS

* Post what you are planning to swap, and/or update your plant list.

* Bring a box or container labeled with your name to put your new plants.

* We plan to meet even if it rains  bring those rain coats, umbrellas, etc.

*E-mail me if you wish to be put on the plant-swap e-mail list.

See the spring Central Indiana Plant Swap Posting (posted Mar 7) for more information from our last swap.

See you there -- We should have a nice crowd and great stuff to share!
