2013 MAG Spring Swap: Plants You WANT List
Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 10am to 1pm
at GardengrammaÃ¢ÂÂs Gorgeous Encampment in Burtonsville (see link below)
KEY THINGS WE MUST DO (read carefully!):
WANT LIST DOs and DONÃ¢ÂÂTs:
- DO post a list of the plants you WANT on this thread. Please add Latin names and cultivar names, as applicable, if you can.
DO list any other garden stuff, such as seeds, tools, pots, magazines, books, and gnomes that you want. Somebody else might have it and want to get rid of it!
DO read other people's lists. If you see things you have and want to arrange a trade, please e-mail the person directly via private e-mail. To e-mail the person, click on their name at the top of their post.
DO update your lists when you think of more things you want.
DO feel free to update your member page with your Haves and Wants and to link your post here to any Plant Exchange page you may have.
DO NOT arrange trades on this thread. Please arrange them via private e-mail.
DO NOT use this thread for your Haves. That's what the MAG Spring Swap: Plants you have thread is for.
DOs and DONÃ¢ÂÂTs for the SWAP:
- DO wear a nametag (of your screen name).
DO label your motor vehicle with a big, visible label (of your screen name).
DO label your plants. The plant labels do not need to be fancy. Popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, or masking tape are fine.
DO mark reserved plants (i.e., plants which you already arranged a trade for) so that other people do not take them by mistake. (It helps to put them somewhere less accessible to the general plant shopper, too.)
DO take plants labeled Ã¢ÂÂFreeÃ¢ÂÂ or Ã¢ÂÂPlease TakeÃ¢ÂÂ. (In fact, PLEASE DO take plants labeled Ã¢ÂÂFree" or Ã¢ÂÂPlease TakeÃ¢ÂÂ. In double fact, take many of those plants!)
DO NOT take anything marked "Reserved" or labeled for someone else.
DO ask if you are not sure whether it is ok for you to take certain plants.
DO protect the plants you are taking home with you by putting them into your car so there is no confusion.
DO, when you leave, take home (or sneak into somebody elseÃ¢ÂÂs vehicle) the plants you brought that nobody wanted.
LEAVE NO TRACE - DO NOT leave any plant leftovers for Gardengramma to deal with.
FAQ #1: CAN I COME EVEN THOUGH I DONÃ¢ÂÂT HAVE ANY PLANTS TO TRADE?
Answer: Yes, you can come even though you don't have any plants to trade. Your main assignment is to bring food or other items for the potluck. (Chocolate-containing foods are strongly encouraged.) Please discuss your potluck contributions at the MAG Spring Swap Food thread, not here. Also, note that, in many cases, the reason people are bringing these particular plants to the swap for you to take home is because the plants are, um, Ã¢ÂÂvigorousÃ¢ÂÂ. Also, we want to enable new gardeners as much as we can, so that in a few years, you will have...
