I have been too busy to post and still not sure what I will be bringing. I planted a whole lotta seeds but I am building my veggie garden again and may be able to use most of them. My mom hasn't started anything this Spring like she did last year. I'll be there but I was hesitant to make any pre-swaps. I'll bring a door prize too. Cheryl

Hi - I, am looking for an in person trade of cactus.
I can't afford postage for the cactus, so in person is the best way.
I am looking for several types of cactus for a cactus garden , which will grow outside.
Please, look over my list below and see if there is anything you might like.
Also, looking for the black pots, I think they are quart size.
Please, contact me personally. If, I am close enough to your location,
I will meet you to pick the plants up.
Thank you, so much.

I have oak seedlings if anyone is interested (the squirrels have been busy). I don't have great luck keeping them alive, but you're welcome to try. So far, they look good in their little pots.

Sylvia, I have some miniature sweet bell pepper seedlings. Not sure how they are going to turn out since I saved the seeds from some that I bought (and ate) so if they were hybrids they may not be as good as the originals. But I planted all the seeds and they all came up, so there's a bunch of them. Thought I'd keep saving and planting for 3-5 years and see where it gets me. Anyway, if you're interested in some of the seedlings you are welcome to them.Cheryl

Here is my list I post on the exchange forum.

I am very new to swapping, but have been gardening since I was a youngster.

quite a few lemongrass starts- most will have to be dug
several 2 yr century plant pups

I'm a single parent, just moved into a rental house with huge flower beds that are absolutely empty!!!!! I've cleaned them out and prepared them for planting, but don't have the resources to purchase lots and lots of new plants, especially since I don't know what will work there or what won't. I'm going to come to the plant swap on Saturday and would love to get "anything offered" to get me started on this huge project. I love bulbs and anything that multiplies, I love color and easy to take care of things. I would appreciate anything and everything you share with me to get me started - I can't stand looking at these empty beds! Thank you in advance and see you guys on Saturday!

Oh MY, wish I could say that I'd be there, but it's not
looking likely. I have several fennel plants that are up
and ready to pot. There could be some other things if I'd
look hard enough. If any one is coming down 35W from the
north, let me know and I'll send some things with you.
