Jan23 said:Welcome all DG friends, I am hosting a Spring Plant Swap

WHEN:
Saturday May 18th starting around 11:00 till……
Lunch will be around 1:00. It will be a covered dish.
We set the 11:00 start time to try and give people time to get here but earlier arrivals are welcome and so are late comers.

WHERE:
Jan's house in Pennsville, NJ
I live right near the Delaware Memorial Bridge. We are right across the river from Wilmington, DE. About 30 miles south of Philly. About 60 miles north of Baltimore. When it
gets closer I will DG mail my address.
So please check the next post to be sure your name is on the list. So that I send you my
address.

WHO:
All DG, Cubits & ATP Subscribers their families and friends are invited.
Children of all ages included.

WHAT TO BRING:
Folding table or blanket and chairs to set up your swap area. We have a few extras but if you

Swap thread for chatting and organizing your swaps and trades.

You: Most important thing to bring is yourself. For those of you that have never been to a Swap you should know that you don’t have to bring plants to the swap to attend, you don’t
even have to bring plants to take some home. If you don’t have much in the way of plants or seeds to swap that doesn't matter. There are plenty of plants to go around Gardeners just love to share their Gardens. This is a great way for new gardeners to start off. These events are as much about just getting together as they are about trading plants.

This thread is for general info, organization, who is planning to attend, and for answering any
questions that might arise. Pretty much anything that is NOT food or plant related. Please
keep food and plant trades chat on those threads. I’m going to save a few spots at the top of this thread for my info, you are welcome to chat after that.

Please check the top posts of this thread for updates, more information, and links to additional
threads. Jan

Looks like a great time for everyone. Just a note to go with the first batch--there is a standard dwarf iris named 'red rabbit'.
