RE: Augusta Plant Swap

Yeah!!!!!! I'll mark this on my calendar right now! I'll also post in on the Central Ohio Plant Swap page on facebook and email it to all of my friends. Can't wait to see you all again!

RE: Augusta Plant Swap

Hi Mouse, here is a picture of some of the hostas I am bringing. I am still thinking of what to bring as a door prize, maybe some womens garden hats, have some cute ones coming soon.

RE: Augusta Plant Swap

Keets, womens garden hats reminds me of a sedum/hens&chicks decoration I did awhile ago. I took and old floppy hat of my mum's turned up the brim abit and then planted sedums and hens all around it like a band. It lasted outside for two years!
Kim Sailor is also coming with me but I don't think anyone else is. I'm still hoping to get a few more to come from down here in Columbus.
Is there anything anyone is looking for in particular?
ps. Say Hi to everyone for me and Kim! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
