If you are looking for a special plant, ask here. Someone might have one they are willing to share or they may be willing to make a private trade.

We had our first swap last year and over 50 people attended. We had loads of fabulous food and lots of beautiful plants and great fellowship with friends. I hope everyone can make it again this year. Twila
