ZZTOPSOIL will host a swap. Thank's ZZ! Here is a link to the thread from the Hosta Swap last Spring.

There is usually one held at the end of Summer as well but due to Hurricane Irene and the heatwave we had here in the Midwest the swap didn't happen.

I would like to swap a few plants, but not a secret swap. Do we ever make a list of wish list plants? Sounds fun to me!

Teresa, The way the secret swaps works is that you have to make two lists. You make your "Want " list and "Have" list so people know what you already have so you don't receive those. They try to send ones from your want list if they have them. Having your Hosta Want and Have lists also helps in setting up regular trades.

Much better than in the old days, Frank!

With the early spring we're all experiencing, I would love to have an earlier swap this year! Anyway, I'm definitely in again.

I am running out of shade so I would be interested in smalls and minis. Would it be ok to trade dls for hosta? Here is a link to my collection.

Oh, it's definitely not too late... We haven't even started yet! But I really want to do it early this year, since so many of us have such warm spring weather. A mid May swap sounds fun.

It doesn't seem like there's enough interest this spring. I was so looking forward to it. It's like the song, You Can't Always Get What You Want.

Trading/ swapping is is a lot of fun but also invovles a lot of work in my opinion. Perhaps most hosta enthusiasts are very busy with the garden and maybe it is not the priority tight now .

Too early for some also since some hosta are just poking in some areas.

If you look at the date of last years Spring swap it was first posted for sign ups in mid May. It is too early and quite a few people would be left out if one were held now.

Just Letting Everyone Know...
I Will be Posting the Sign-Up and Information for the Spring 2012 Swap Over the Weekend.

Excellent!! So glad to be a part of this one!!!

Sorry, but I will not be in on this swap. My 90 yr old father has had a stroke and still in the hospital. He and my Mom will be needing lots of help.
