2. Plan For The Day:
10:00 to 12:00 AM people arrive, sign-in with the number of plants they have, get their name
tag. Place plants in viewing and swap area, they will be marked with plants varieties. Visit
with the other traders, and view the plants.

Round 4 pick three plants etc.

3. Door Prizes: We will have door prizes. If you would like to donate anything for a door prize
it would be appreciated. A donation can be any thing you would enjoy receiving yourself. A special plant you would like to share, a craft item, something you think a gardener would appreciate.

4. Pot Luck Lunch: Please bring a dish to share with a serving utensil. Please bring you own
beverage with personal plates and silverware. There will be a donation jar if you would like to help with the cost of the shelter rental.

If you are looking for a special plant, ask here. Someone might have one they are willing to share or they may be willing to make a private trade.

I hope everyone can make it again this year. Twila

RE: Augusta Plant Swap

They are calling for sunshine on the 4th of June, keeping my fingers crossed as this phenomenon has been rare this spring in Ohio.
I can't wait to see everyone this year. I am bringing Hostas, June Moon and Paradigm, maybe some small ones like hydon sunset and Lemon Lime. Also heucheras and tricyrtis (toadlilies) I might have a hosta "Ice Cream" also. I am bring a hugh start of Paradigm for a door prize, and I have a couple of other door prizes to bring I think people will enjoy. If you could donate a door prize it would be appreciated, we are trying to keep up our door prize part of the swap as everyone seem to enjoy that part of the swap. I know we have some special one coming again this year. I also want to thank the people who donated last year, we had some very special and awesome door prizes. I already have some door prizes put back for the youngest gardeners I think they will enjoy. Twila
