Plant Exchange - Garden Web
Green Thumb Sunday

Garden Web is one of the foremost forums for plant information. It has google tripping archives of most of the questions I've asked plus lots I had not even thought of. It also has a great community.

In a meeting of the often mentioned plantcycle and gardenweb members, a plant exchange was held today at the parking lot of the experimental farm.

I brought far too many gardening books that I have collected, along with some seedlings and seeds.

In return, I received, 6 tomato plants, a type of lily, some dwarf iris, zucchini and asian cucumber and some malva seedlings!

That's the great thing about gardeners, they love to share.

Here's them in action:

My favourite was tomato was Rouge d’Irak. Apparently, seed saving certain varities (or those with similar characteristics) in Iraq has become illegal.


Fight the power folks - ask me for seeds at the season's end.

What a wonderful idea! I need to find some local gardeners to network with. Most gardeners have excessess they'd love to share. :0)

Plant exchanges are wonderful. I set up a Green Thumb Yahoo group for my area where members can give away or trade all sorts of gardening things. It is working really well.

I love plant exchanges and garden clubs and events like this one. I wish I had more time to do more things like this. Thanks for sharing.
