2012 New England Plant Swap

THIS is the way your mother made her garden grow. She traded thriving plants with friends and neighbors.

Which is exactly what we'll be doing at the New England Plant Swap this Spring. Sharing is the best part of gardening. When a plant does well enough here in New England, others want to know about it. They'd like even more to HAVE some of it.

If you haven't been to a good, old-fashioned plant swap, you're in for a treat. Pot up your excess prized plants to share. Load up your bounty and head to beautiful Adams Farm at 999 North St. in Walpole MA on June 2, 2012 at 9 am. There, you will meet other, friendly, local gardeners with their booty for sharing.

It's simple, free and fun for all. For each plant you bring, you can take a plant from someone else. All the details are at our web site: or we may be reached at We look forward to seeing you there.

Your mother would be proud. In fact, BRING your mother and other friends who like to share.

Hi Daylilyguy, I remember you from Whitegarden's swap. Is this swap at your house? If not, who is organizing this? They've even purchased a url! Looks like a fun swap.

I was tossing around the idea of hosting a spring swap this year, but I stretched a bit thin this Spring.

RE: 2012 New England Plant Swap

Hi terrene... I remember you very fondly from Whitegarden's swap... I tried to email you and others who went to Whitegarden's!

I'm organizing this and created the web site and paid for the URL personally!

The town of Walpole generously let me have beautiful Adams Farm for the swap. I hope you can make had such great contributions to the last plant swap!
