Wondering?

Is there a croup, club or place that does a spring plant swap?
Around Springfield would be perfect but another area would possibly work too.
I lived in areas where they were done and they were such fun. Not to mention, they were places to get great deals on plants

Yes, Springfield MO. Is there another one in the Ozarks?
We get to Springfield and Joplin and that's about it. I'm always looking up towns on the map to see how far they are.

You might get on the Greene County (Springfield) Master Gardener's website, I think they have a plant swap and sale. They also have a facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/MasterGardenersGreeneCounty

The Joplin garden clubs do not as far as I know, tho the Carl Junction bunch might do.

questions? call Master Gardener Hotline at 417 881 8909 ext 320

My family reunion is on this day every year and it kills me that I don't get to go. The last time I did go, I filled the back of my friend's pickup. I never get there early because it is a two hour drive and I'm not an early riser. I think I usually make it by about 11:00 and they have still had plenty of stuff. I imagine the choice stuff goes early, but it may also be crowded. I go into greed mode when I go to these things. The prices are reasonable.
