Tropical-SubTropical 'Surplus' Swap
Perennials, bulbs, rhizomes, corms, cuttings and tropicals are all welcome here because....
We've all done it....
Planted too much of our favourite plant?
Sowed way too many seeds?
Bought more bulbs than we needed (and had them multiply!!!!)
Had a small plant take over the garden?
Whatever your garden surplus this is a chance for you to reduce it (or exchange it for a new one) ha ha ha ;)
Plants, bulbs/rhizomes/corms, cuttings, and well established seedlings are welcome in this swap. Perennials, Tropicals, you name it, if you have too much of something maybe we can find a new home for it!
Here is how it works:
1: Sign up between now and April 30th.
2: Tell us about your 'surplus' What is it? Tall, short, tropical, drought tolerant, shade lover, flower or folliage, cottage garden staple. Don't forget to tell us its Zone Hardiness. and anything else you can This swap is about "Surplus", it is not the place for trading your prized plant, It is also not the place for getting rid of the weeds in your lawn!!! Whatever you offer should be something you would like to recieve! No spindly seedlings or mushy bulbs please.... be nice, be generous, the person who recieves your plants may have an opportunity to repay that generosity some day!
Lets find a new home for your DESIREABLE, plant/bulb/rhizome/divisions/cuttings/?"Surplus".
Also, please tell us about your garden, your likes, dislikes, your particular garden challenges. (someone, might have the answer you have been looking for) All of this information will help me to find the best partner for you!
3: On May 1 (or there abouts) I will post swap partners, based on the information that you provide here in this thread (so tell us EVERYTHING)
I will try to match Surplus with people who want it/can use it.
Side trading is encouraged after partners are assigned. Please feel free to wheel and deal, just don't neglect your assigned partner!
I want everyone to have fun, unload some "SURPLUS" plants/divisions/roots/corms/bulbs/whatever and possibly pick up something cool in exchange!
Boxes/Packages containing LIVE PLANTS should be sent PRIORITY MAIL. All packages need to arrive at their new homes by May 30th.(That means they should leave your house no later than the 27th, by Priority Mail) Please post when you send and recieve. Also do consider leaving "APPROPRIATE" feedback in the Rate and Review.
It is your responsibility to ensure that LIVE/VIABLE plant/seeds/cuttings arrive at their new home and that they are what you say they are. If you need help please ask, I am sure someone will be happy to help.
BTW this will be my first time hosting a swap, so do jump in and set me straight if I foul it up!!!
Let the swap begin!!!
