stark county plant swap
stark county's 1st annual plant swap
Hello everyone, my name is Kelly and I will be hosting the swap. I also have help from my new garden buddy Pam. This swap is for Stark county and surronding areas. I'm looking forward to meeting the garden web folks that have made my first year a truely awesome experience!
Plant Swap: How it Works
Bring up to twenty (20) live, healthy plants--indoor or outdoor-- in one gallon or smaller containers that meet the information described below. (A one gallon container is about the size of a one pound coffee can.) You will receive tickets for each plant you bring in, based on size.
Bring healthy, attractive plants that YOU would take home, in a container no more than 1 gallon in size.
Bulbs, corms and other tubers are accepted; please have these separated into individual bags with 3-5 in each bag; more if they are prolific, less if they are large or unusual.
Plants MUST be rooted. Planted cuttings should also be rooted and potted up.
Label your plants with as much information as you have for their new owners. Plants must be labeled before they will be accepted.
Tickets will be given out as follows (plant size should be suitable for container--small plants in small containers, larger plants in larger containers): 1 gallon: 2 tickets
Under 1 gallon: 1 ticket
Bulbs,corms, tubers: 1 ticket per bag
chairs and tables if you have any handy (they're ALWAYS appreciated by the host!).
boxes ~ lots and lots of boxes! You'll need them to carry your things there and to haul home your treasures!
Other things that are okay to bring:
gardening buddies ~ If ya' got 'em, bring 'em! And tell them to bring stuff to swap, too, so they can join in the fun. The more swap partners, the better!
spouses ~ Even if he or she isn't really into gardening, they're always welcome, too ~ they just might strike up a conversation with another non-gardening spouse and have fun after all! Or, better yet, they might just catch the gardening bug themselves ~
we will also be have a potluck, so bring you favorite dish.
this will be a round round style swap.
How this works:
round one- choose 1 plant
round two- choose 2 plants
