Time for a new thread I think!
Please post your list of available plants, and your list of who you are trading what with whom!!
Saturday June 21th, our 12th annual GardenWeb plant swap from 11am ~ 2or 3 pm. (BlueIris3 is staking out a spot at Springbank Park around 8:45 ~ 9 am, please feel free to arrive earlier to visit with me!
Directions: Springbank Park in London, at the "stone cabin" picnic area on Flint Lane. Use the North Street park entrance and turn LEFT/West onto Flint Lane. The shelter is about 200 metre down the road, on your left. Map here:
Based on maps from city of london website, the exact address for the shelter should be 1040 Flint Lane. use it for your GPS.
Details: Bring your plants (if possible labelled with the plant name and your name). Put plants for which you've done online trades in your "tradee's" area. It'll be marked with a sign with the person's GW name.
Gambler's Circle: You can bring extra plants (again, hopefully marked with your name and the plant name, there will be extra plant markers on hand to label them) for the "
Gamblers' Circle".
If you put 5 plants (or garden related items) in the gamblers circle, you may take 5 out. All plants must have your name on them somewhere (masking tape works fine for this, some will be on hand for this). At the end of the swap any leftovers with your name on them go home with you. This ensures that no one gets stuck trucking all the orphans home. Please also make sure to take home any boxes that you brought with you.

Numbers: This is my attempt at an attendee list - please confirm if you can come and if you are bringing any friends or family, and if you are, if they want to participate in the Gambler's Circle.

We will send 2 people into the gambler's circle at the same time.
One from the start of the list above and one from the end.
They each get to pick one plant then the next 2 go one from the top of the list and one from the bottom and get 1 plant each, and so on. Everyone has had a good chance at picking a plant they want. Then, the gamblers circle is open to everyone at the same time and we would all go pick from the rest of the plants in the gamblers circle.

Food: A pot luck lunch. Along with your dish please bring serving utensils and your own re-useable plates and glasses. If you forget plates etc. there will be some disposable ones on hand. There is a covered area in case it rains, but it may or may not have any tables, another good reason to bring your own lawn chair.
