Hi Phyllis
Here is the info.
The address for Mercer Arboretum is
22306 Aldine Westfield Rd
Humble TX 77338
Directions
Go I-45 and take the 69 exit. If you are going north on 45, you will be going east on Cypresswood, and continue until you get to Aldine Westfield. At Aldine Westfield, you will take a right, and Mercer will be a few miles down on the left. We will be meeting on the Right side of the road, in the picnic areas. It will be on the right. I'll be there by 9:00. We are hoping to meet between 9:30 and 10:00.
If coming from the south, southwest or west, you will probably take IH-45 or the Hardy Toll Road, going north. It may be necessary that you take Loop 610 or the Beltway to get to either IH-45 or the Hardy Toll Road. In any event, go north on either IH-45 or the Hardy Toll Road, and exit at FM 1960. Turn right (or East) on F.M. 1960. Very shortly you will see Aldine Westfield Rd. which crosses 1960. Turn left (or north) on Aldine Westfield. It is approximately 1.2 miles from F.M. 1960 to the location of the Park, which is more or less directly across the street from Mercer Arboretum. There is a sign at the entrance to the Park, which will be on the left side of the street.

Janet,

is Mercer the Houston swap ? A good friend of mine always goes, and I was curious, how large a group is usually there ?

Thank you,
patty

Hi Patty,
Jennifer is the host for the Mercer swap she puts it on every year. I'm sure she'll be posting soon. If i'm not mistaken Houston Plant swap is part of that now. Someone else may be able to tell you more about that. It's usually a good size crowd maybe around 100 or so that goes to the spring swap at Mercer. Alot of great people, plants and food.
