The Alabama plant swap will be held on Saturday, Sept 22 starting at 10 a.m. at Oak Mountain State park, in the parking lot next to the lake beach and swimming area.

Take I-65 South to exit 246. Turn right at the bottom of the off-ramp on to Alabama Hwy 119. There are signs which direct you to the Oak Mountain State Park road. FOLLOW THE SIGNS. The road to the park is almost directly across Hwy 119 from the bottom of the exit. The road to the park entrance parallels I-65 South for a short distance and then passes under I-65. There are signs directing you to the park entrance. Ask the gate attendant to direct you to the beach and picnic area. The road to the picnic area is about 2 miles down the road on the right. Turn right, up the hill and follow that road. It is a very winding road. The picnic area is almost at the end of the road. We always park and gather in the parking area.

Use this space to list those items which you have to trade, those things you want or to direct everyone to your Gardenweb trade list. Be sure to update your GW trade list before posting.

Use this space to arrange pre-planned trades. Review the trade lists of others and feel free to contact the person about a trade.

Be sure to bring extra items with you which have not been traded in pre-arranged exchanges There is always something you want or someone else wants which becomes an informal, un-arranged trade.

We usually break shortly after 11 a.m. for lunch. We would love for everyone to join us whether you bring food or not. If you plan to bring food, please list what you will bring on your post. That way we dont wind up with 20 gallons of potato salad or baked beans.

We hope you will come join us. Y'all come!

RE: have: al forum plant swap sept 22 - oak mtn park

I have my trade list going--I'm going to be bringing a lot of the same stuff
to try to give away. I know many of y'all say "anything unusual" on your want list,but I don't have too many of those yet. Just tryin' to keep stuff alive like everybody else.

By the way, I like the "Advisory" that shows up on the ordering form page of the Plant Delights catalog I'm looking through:

"ADVISORY: If you have already run your credit cards up to the limit, we suggest that you get a higher credit limit before reading through this catalog."

That guy seems to have a real sense of humor.

RE: have: al forum plant swap sept 22 - oak mtn park

I noticed that you have updated your list. I am interested in your coreopsis creme brulee. If it is still available, please take a look at my (updated) list and see if there is anything you want.

updated trade list

Be sure to check my updated list.

RE: have: al forum plant swap sept 22 - oak mtn park

Think I'll bring cold sandwiches. The sandwiches will be a variety.Condiments on the side as everyone doesn't like mayo :o)

RE: have: al forum plant swap sept 22 - oak mtn park

I want to come but the heat we had this summer about killed everything and I am to afraid to dig anything up that is half alive. Might have some calla lilies white one. I know the lady who used to work at Mont. college said she wanted some, does anyone know who I am talking about? Will have some striped grass that Susan gave me a couple of years ago cant remember the name of it.

RE: have: al forum plant swap sept 22 - oak mtn park


Daisy-Mae (Irene) works at the Univ. of Montevallo.

The grass is Miscanthus sinensis "Variegatus".


RE: have: al forum plant swap sept 22 - oak mtn park

Hey Y'all,

I will be coming to the swap and Blake is pretty sure he'll be coming with me. I will have the trades I pre-arranged with Nelson, Wayne, & Jan.
My computer has died (yet again), and I in the process of helping my dad move and trying to sell my house, so I probably won't be able to get to a computer to arrange any more trades.
And I will have mississippi mud cake.
