How to find people to trade lily bulbs with?

linnea56(z5 IL)October 26, 2008

IÂd like to trade some lily bulbs but notice that most of the posts on the plant-specific lists for lilies are really old or from people who have other things to trade for lilies. I want to trade lilies for lilies. Is there some place I am overlooking? (and boy, when you do a search you get so many false hits for things called "lilies" that arenÂt lilies!) Or any idea how I can find local people to trade with so I donÂt have to ship? I am in the NW suburbs of Chicago, so there must be others nearby who have lilies as well.

In another post I mentioned going to the website of The North American Lily Society. There you can check to see if there is a lily society in your state or region. They often have swaps and or sales, some just for members, others open to the public.
