2015 Fall Plant Swap....Success!!

The 2015 Fall Plant Swap is in the books, I will classify it as a success, not one of our best, but certainly not the worst.
65 people and approximately 1300 plants were traded. That is about one half of a normal gathering. We had a few things against us. The weather was slightly threatening and there was actually another plant swap being held the same day in downtown Charleston. Still, overall, a good day.
There were new friendships made, old ones rekindled, and a few people got some very nice plants that they had been looking for.
The spring swap does not have a date set yet, I am actually waiting on some family events to get planned before I choose one, rest assured there will be one!!
It will be posted here, on Facebook (NorthCharlestonPlantSwap) and via e-mail. If you want to get on the e-mail list for future swaps and other interesting plant information when it comes up, send me a message and I will add you.
Thanks to ALL of you that showed up!! Hopefully we will have more folks stick around and participate in the potluck lunch at the spring swap.
In the meantime, enjoy these photos from the swap itself.
Happy Growing!
