I'd be willing to host it here in Orange County if we could get enough people together. I saw they're having an Ohio swap at the end of May, and around that time seems good to me.
Let's discuss and get ideas.
I'm in Orange and would be interested. Not sure what I might be able swap? Might have something. How does it work?By may, i'll definitely have some very pretty poison ivy :)
Keep me posted.
Count my bride and myself in.... And we're willing to host one in Dutchess County as well...
This is what it is all about!!!!
Where in dutchess are you? I am in Beekman. Have you ever gone to a Hudson Valley Iris and Day Lily society meeting at the Poughkeepsie Galleria? It is not just for Iris and Day Lily lovers. there are people there who don't grow any iris or daylilies. Alot of the members are into shade gardening and natives. We have "Open garden" tours in the spring. My garden will be open memorial day weekend for the iris bloom. It is a great way to get new plants. We often raffle off our excess or trade with each other or you can buy plants at our annual plant sale in august (That is the best time to transplant iris around here).
We're in Lagrangeville, near the Route 82/55 intersection...
Tell me more about the Garden Club. When are the meetings??
The meetings are once a month on a sunday at the galleria in poughkeepsie. The meetins are usual held March through November so there are no meetings now, but they would be really good wintersowing parties! Visit this site: http://www.hvids.org/
Contact Mr. Jerry Murphy (president)and he will put you on the mailing list so you will recieve a detailed post card each time we have a meeting. We always have guest speakers and developed discussion on everything from iris genetics to deer deterant.
Orange County would work for me -- I'm in southern Ulster. I've been Winter Sowing like crazy -- I'm sure to have lots of extras!
When were you thinking of having the Swap? June 4th (the first Sat. in June) is the Ulster CCE/Master Gardener Plant Swap in Kingston, which I plan to attend.
Hi, are you still planning to do this? It would be great for me (since I live just up the road, LOL) Please let me know...I definately have stuff I could trade.
Haven't checked back here in awhile, and my spring/summer is turning busy already, but maybe we can do an informal Orange County swap? BBQ, pot luck, and plants? Anyone with ideas or interest, please post something.
I've winter sowed TONS (although who knows when they'll start sprouting due to this !@#%&! weather!).
Lisa, if you ever want to stop by, e-mail or give me a call.
Lianne, can you tell me about this? thanks.
June 4th (the first Sat. in June) is the Ulster CCE/Master Gardener Plant Swap in Kingston,
I would also love to join a plant swap! I'm located in the Town of Newburgh.
Is this thing on? I am interested! Will have lots available as I am cutting back on my gardens because of my work load. The weeds are going nutso!
Also, BTW-the Hudson Valley iris and Daylily Society no longer meets at the Galleria (insurance problems). they now meet at Fellowship Hall, First Dutch Reform Church
1143 Main Street, Fishkill, NY. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for info or visit the website below.

I live in Wappingers Falls and I went to a plant swap in CT last spring. I would love to have a plant swap in Dutchess County, with the cost of gas these days!
I've got lots of campanula, gaillardia and some asters to swap. Probably more things as time goes on. If there is a Dutchess County swap, please give details.
The one I went to in CT was very casual -- people came and put their plants to swap on tables. Everyone browsed for awhile and took what they wanted. It was hosted by a nursery, who provided meats (hamburgs and hot dogs) and buns. Everyone else brought side dishes and desserts. It was so fun and relaxing.
I've seen other plant swaps listed where they have "rounds" where you pick a certain amount of plants, depending on how many you bring.
I think it would work either way; I really enjoyed the one I went to, though, because it didn't feel like any "plant police," it was just fellow plant lovers trading away their extras with no strings attached.
Is this still happening? I'd be interested, have tons of perennials potted up. I'm in Ulster right near orange co.
I'm very interested in a plant swap in Dutchess.I have lots to trade but am most interested in meeting other gardeners in the area.Is there one scheduled yet?
We are hosting one - hope you all can make it!
