My sister-in-law, Ellen had a plant swap this past weekend which I enjoyed. There was a fun group of ladies there. A plant swap is just what the name implies, guests bring plants to share, either from their garden or purchased, and then everyone takes a turn picking what you want. Anything to do with gardening can be swapped including magazines, pots, decor etc. It is a great way to get some new plants or other goodies and also learn something new about gardening too.
Anyway, back to the plants, I brought 3 plants-rosemary, levender and columbine. I made plant stakes with a wine cork that I wrote on with a sharpie. Then I just stuck a bamboo skewer in the cork, cut it a little shorter and stuck it in each plant. I also brought some magazines as well as some hand scrub and herbal salve. In return I got 4 new plants for my garden and a cute pot. Ellen also sent everyone home with pots of herbs that she provided for everyone. Good Times!
