Austin/San Antonio Fall Swap 10/17/09

Darn it, It just clicked in my mind that I won't be able to do the Plant Swap on Oct. 17th. I am scheduled to take a local garden group on a field trip to Peckerwood Gardens in Hemstead that Saturday, soooo, with much disappointment, I will miss seeing you all and will look forward to spring instead.

RE: WANTED: Austin/San Antonio Fall Swap 10/17/09

Charlotte, could you somehow put BUDA in the title ? On maybe another post ?

We're on the San Antonio swap post telling people about a swap in Buda and they can't find one listed anywhere.

Austin/San Antonio Fall Swap 10/17/09 in Buda

Just a couple of weeks until the swap.
Here is the usual info and map link.
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 fee.
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!

I'm looking for, but not limited to, daylilies, roses, bulb flowers, salvias, flowering perennials, succulents.

I'm very interested in making pre-arranged trades so that I don't have to haul as much. Would like to be able to have everything in boxes and ready to give you ! Please email me directly if I have something you'd like ! Looking forward to seeing you there !


RE: WANTED: Austin/San Antonio Fall Swap 10/17/09

Looks like the usual crowd will be in attendance after all. I'm letting everyone know that I'm planning to bring some ham instead of the sausage and rice this time. Less mess and I want to take off a little earlier mainly due to THE GAME.

It's been raining for days, but off the top of my head, I plan on bringing the following:

sweet potato vine starts (margarite, blackie & ace of spades)
cuttings of epiphyllum (ivory blooms)
cuttings of rick rack
society garlic (if anyone wants some)
butterfly iris
Seeds of the white datura and butterfly pea vine.
Anything else I can think of to bring.
I will also check to see if I can dig up any bulbs that may be of interest.

Lindsey, save me a start of blue mist.

Look forward to Saturday and I'm hoping for good weather.
