2012 Fall MAG Swap: Plants You Want List
Saturday October 6, 2012 from 10am to 1pm
at KimKa's in Silver Spring, MD. Directions are on the main MAG page under the thread announcing the swap.
The Standard Swap Instructions (I know that nobody ever reads instructions, including me. But please read them anyway):
WANTS LIST DOs and DON'Ts:
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 Fall Swap: Plants you have thread is for.
DOs and DON'Ts for the SWAP:
DO wear a nametag.
DO label your motor vehicle with a big, visible label.
DO mark reserved plants (i.e., plants which you already arranged a trade for) so that other people do not take them by mistake.
DO label your plants. The plant labels do not need to be fancy. Popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, etc. are fine.
DO take plants labeled "Free" or "Please Take". (In fact, PLEASE do take plants labeled "Free or Please Take".)
DO ask if you are not sure whether it is ok for you to take the plants.
DO, when you leave, take home (or sneak into somebody else's vehicle) the plants you brought that nobody wanted.
DO NOT take anything marked "Reserved" or labeled for someone else.
DO NOT leave the unwanted plants for KimKa to have to deal with.
FAQ #1: CAN I COME EVEN THOUGH I DON'T 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 pot luck. (Chocolate-containing foods are strongly encouraged.) Please discuss your potluck contributions at the MAG Fall Swap Food thread, not here. Also, note that, in many cases, the reason why people are bringing these particular plants to the swap for you to take home is because the plants are, um, "vigorous". In a few years, you, too, will have lots of plants to trade.
