Austin - San Antonio Plant Swap


The Austin=San Antonio Plant Swap held twice a year in spring and fall at the City Park in Buda (13 miles S. of Austin) is scheduled for October 27th.
See the Plant Swap Calendar on that date for more details. Hope everyone within reasonable driving distance can make it.

I am so excited about the Plant Swap. If you have never been, it is really fun, informative and a great learning experience.

I have been rooting different plants and saving others all summer.

See you there~!!!!

Plant Swap Info


I hope every one is getting ready for the swap.
If you would like to be added to the evite list let me know. Please start posting your haves and wants on this thread.
Thanks,
Charlotte
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".
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
Drinking water
rain jacket (for some reason our swap usually causes a shower!)
