I hope you won't mind that I post this here. We are not mid-south, but we have had people come to this swap from all over the east, from Canada, New York, Pennsylvannia, on down, so I want to share the info with everyone.

The date is set! April 28, 2012 in the small community of Lockhart, AL, right beside Florala, AL. We are trying a new location this time, but the fun will be the same or even better if you come join us. This swap has been going on approximately 10 years, so we just can't give up the good time we have getting together to swap plants, exchange ideas, meet new people, lunch together, give away door prizes, and anything else we come up with. Everyone interested come join us, you don't have to have a ton of plants, just come experience the fun with more plant nuts like yourself. We don't swap plant for plant very much, just share what we have and always go home with more than we intend to. There will be some online trading before the swap, so a trade list will be on another thread (look on the Florida Gardening forum). But don't despair if it's a last minute decision to come, there are ALWAYS plenty of plants available that day. Let us know here if you will be coming, hope to come, want to come, ask more questions, what ever. Starting time is officially at 10:00 so those travelling a little distance don't have to get up too early, but folks usually start showing up around 8:30 or so, and there's no holding back, trading starts when the first two people get there.

There is a campground at the new location, and one on Lake Jackson in Florala. There are two bed/breakfast (Lake House has new owners and has had some renovation work done). There is a small motel by the lake and surrounding towns have larger motels (Andalusia & Opp, AL; Crestview & Defuniak Springs, FL). If anyone wants more info on these, just ask.

Here I am.... Please feel free to post my trades on here... I'll try but don't always get time to check all the sites...

Also - I'm thinking that you have a trade thread but can't find it so I'll keep looking
