Cleve. Co Shlby/Kngs Mtn/Grver surrounding area Plant Swap DATE SET


Ok It is here!!! We will be having a plant swap in the Lower Cleveland County Township #3-Grover AREA.
If you would like information on the location or more information in general please email me and I will answer any questions you may have.
It will be May 16th opening at 12:00 pm we will end at 4:00 pm or later if we are talking lol.
From 12:00 to 12:30 we will do set-up of those coming in for lunch and set-up of their plants, IF you are coming for lunch PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
From 12:30 to 1:30 or so we will have a picnic type lunch we will share a list of foods that will be coming so we do not end up with lots of one item.
PLEASE LIST WHAT YOU WISH TO BRING FOOD WISE SO WE CAN MAKE A RUNNING LIST OF WHO AND WHAT FOODS WILL BE THERE! (Please Post IN THE FOOD POSTING THREAD). I am sure someone will start one.
AGAIN IF you are coming for lunch PLEASE LET ME KNOW. If you can not bring a food item plates, cups, forks, spoons and napkins are good too.
1:30 to 2:00 side trades and set-up for those who didn't show up for lunch.
2:00 until all the plants are gone PLANT SWAP.
ANY TIME REMAINING AFTER THE PLANTS ARE GONE WILL BE FOR CHATTING IF YOU WANT TO STAY A BIT LONGER!
Everyone is welcome. Bring Plants and seeds if you wish to trade seeds after the Plant Swap is over or during lunch! Please pot up your plants a few weeks before and make sure they are watered well prior to the swap, we want happy plants for the trip home.
PLEASE make sure all plants are well rooted no-one wants a plant to perish later due to lack of a good root system.
ALL plants are welcome however if you have vegetables or annuals please post those so that you can make side trades for those in general but vegetables WILL BE ALLOW IN THE GENERAL SWAP!
If you can make it and are making plans to join us please email me to confirm you will be coming.
Also IF you are making side trades please make sure you can come if for some reason you can not make it after promising plants please make arrangements for your plants to make it to the swap. THANKS SO VERY MUCH!!!
Please bring any tables and lawn chairs you may have!
Please email me for more information on a plant raffle for one special plant!

TalkingLooks like GREAT fun!


I know it will be a huge success, and I'm in NC, but too far away to make the trip there and back in 1 day,
and my schedule won't allow me to be away for any longer than that at this time.

Thinking of you, wishing I could be there, bet you're having a blast!

I hope that you take pictures and share them, and tell us about all the wonderful swaps -
that will whet appetites for the next time. And, hopefully by then my schedule will be more flexible.

Successful Plant Swap???????


Hi! How did the plant swap go? I hope is was a huge success and there are plans for another one for fall planting! I have never experienced a plant swap before and would really like to find one in the greater Charlotte area. I am in Waxhaw and a novice to growing so I know I could get sooooooo much from a plant swap (more than plants that is)! I do have a few modest offerings to contribute and am really hoping to get the chance to do so. I don't know the "rules" other than the basic be nice and safe ones I've seen here, so really, how does it all work?
