I will be missing it this year. I am off to New Mexico to search for agave seeds.

Is there any pre-swapping going on? Maybe I have missed that thread somehow.

Tonya, I think I read a list of their postings somewhere. I read Bobs, and tried to send him and email, since he likes variegated plants and I have a few new ones that I know he would love to have. The email would not go thru. Bob and I both love variegated plants that are diffrent. Bob, if you read this I have a variegated iron plant, that looks beautiful in the yard. Needs shade, I have been saving it since last October, but have it in a zip lock bag, and it is still alive. Love those, iron plants. Barbra

Thanks Barbra, if you find that listing, please let me know. I haven't seen it and I don't think Charlotte is aware of it either.

Ok, I know what I did, I did a search, and entered Buda plant swap, I just did it again. The problem is I was reading the postings from the wrong year. That is probably why my email would not go thru. Last night I could not figure it out, its funny how much clearer you think after a cup of coffee. Sorry, Barbra

That's pretty funny Barbra. Smart way to look for it though. See you tomorrow in SA...

Next Saturday is the swap.
Hope this beautiful weather continues, so far the extended forecast looks good.
I will post some of the plants I'm bringing later.
Feel free to post your have and wants on this thread.

Once again I'm posting the following information.

Here is the basic outline for our swap.
The swap usually starts at 9am sharp and we usually do door
prizes and a potluck lunch around noon. It's usually all over by 1:30
or 2 depending on weather and how many people come. As for what to
bring, the options are wide open. Plants of course, either divisions of
your perennials, or cuttings you started or seeds you collected and
labeled. Sometimes people bring whole plants they decided they didn't
like anymore or didn't have room for. Also, if making new plants is not
your thing, you can bring gardening related items, books, terra cotta
pots, tools, etc... People are generally very generous and eager to
make newbies feel welcome so there are no hard and fast rules about
what you can bring. Also, most gardeners just don't want to take any of
their own stuff back home so they are often not expecting an "even
trade". Please do not take an item from someone's area without asking.
A good idea is to bring an extra box to put under your table for the plants you
have swapped and are taking home.

Items under the tables are off limits.
Also, we do have a donation jar if you want to help with the pavilion rental

There is also a list of things you may find useful to bring:
camp chair or stool
card table (there are no tables provided at the Buda pavilion)
extra plant labels and marker
extra plastic pots - usually someone needs these
plastic bags for transporting goodies
plastic nursery trays for transporting goodies
gardening item to donate for door prize (optional)
Your favorite food or drink for the potluck.
Drinking water
rain jacket (for some reason our swap usually causes a shower!

It was a perfect day for the swap.
We had a small group but it was fun as usual.
Thanks to Lindsey, Debbie, Margie, Omar, Larry, Marcie, Pam and Carey for coming and sharing plants.
See you at the spring swap in April.

It was great to meet everyone!

As a reminder, I brought very little - only the "Blue Angel" Columbine and the Orchid Tree 'bauhinia purpurea'.

I may have promised cuttings or rooted cuttings of various plants. Unfortunately I have a terrible memory and forgot to take my notebook!

Please message me with your information and what I may have promised so I can ensure I'm prepared for spring. :)
