HAVE: Garden Visit/Potluck/Plant Swap- May 4, 2008

steve_nj(7-a)February 5, 2008

MARK YOUR CALENDAR & TELL YOUR FRIENDS

Here is the basic information:

Date: Sunday May 4th, 2008

Arrive 10:00 AM (unload plants and food in driveway and park across road on Sedgwick). Walk around garden, socialize, etc.

potluck 12 noon

Afternoon-plant swap(informal or prearranged trades), visits to nearby public plantings of hardy palms, crape myrtles, etc.

TRADING MATERIALS:Labeled plants, cuttings (rooted or unrooted), bulbs, shrubs, happy seedlings, seeds, garden ornaments,garden magazines, extra gardening implements, or any other garden-related items.

POT LUCK: Please bring a lunch dish (with serving utensil) to enjoy and share. Bring a chair if you have one (extra chairs here if needed). Plates, plastic silverware, napkins, cups, and iced tea & water will be provided.

This will be a wonderful chance to share our passion for gardening, meet other avid and learning gardeners, have a festive and delicious meal, acquire some new plants & share our extras. In addition, there will be a side trip to visit nearby public plantings which include cold-tolerant palms.

This should be a FUN, informal day to share our love of gardening! I'm contacting some gardening friends & posting on several boards. Hopefully we'll have a good crowd. You should bring a gardening friend, too! Please email if you need the address and so I can get a head count.

HOPE YOU CAN MAKE IT TO THE SWAP!

This sounds great! I would love to learn more about Those palms you have. I have a friend who just sent me acai seeds and after reading the info on it I felt like it's going to be almost impossible to grow but if you can do it maybe there's a little hope for me too. (Probably in a pot)Anyway could you tell me where you're located? I'd like to find out how far you are before I can commit myself. I don't drive because of my vision so I'll have to hitch a ride. Thanks I look forward to hearing back from you. Deanna

Hi Steve,

I'm planning on coming this year. I saw the picture of your palm trees on one of the other forums - amazing! I remember when they were very small a few years ago.

I'll be posting my "have" list soon.
