FYI... several Spring Plant Swaps have been posted on the EXCHANGES page. Yes, you are invited! We'd love to meet you.

Plant swaps are usually held about twice a year; spring and fall.

Its a great way to meet your fellow gardeners, pass along your extra plants and get starts of plants you've been thinking about trying.

Its amazing how my gardening skills and my gardens improved once I started going to plant swaps.

Best of all: ITS FREE!!! :)

No, you don't have to bring plants if you are a new/beginning gardener! Allowances are made for that. Each Swap handles it differently so be sure to read all the info posted about the one you plan to attend.

Look for this just above the list of posts on the main page:

Oh DebraV it _is_ a lot of fun.

I've seen several new posters from the panhandle recently.. maybe you guys can start one up there?

I noticed on the Oklahoma forum they have a swap too.. I'm not sure where or when it is, but it might be less of a drive for you?

Of course you are more than welcome to come visit any of the swaps held in the state.

Emrogers come on out and visit with us.. you won't go home empty handed!
