RU 2013 - I would like to Host!!

Donna in Douglas, GA(Zone 8b)

Hello Gardeners,

It's been sometime since I've posted due to my little nursery is keeping me so busy these days! Way back in April of 2007 I hosted a RU and it was a great success with many DG'ers attending. Now I would like to host again and start planning for a FALL RU. I've talked about this for the last two years and it seem I just could never find the time. I'm going to make time because it was so much fun sharing with you all!!

Yes, I know it early but if I don't make plans now time will simple pass by. Since spring is my busy season and fall is when most of my plants are at their peak! I'm thinking sometime in October would be best for me and of course if there's anyone interested in coming too.

Those of you that attended in 2007, know I've got the room for a large crowd! I'll just need a few helpers to pull it all together. So I'll be popping in & out during the next few months and see if there's and interest. I sure do miss chatting with all my old garden buddies and look forward in making new ones here as well!

Please free feel to make comments and suggestions about a up & coming Fall RU. And if there's one in the spring I'll do my best to attend!

Happy Year New!!

Hi Donna!
I have found my way back to my garden LOL. After 2 years starting up a highschool girls Lacrosse team, it is time for my house and yard again I'm afraid. Have been cleaning up for last 4 weeks, working on last few yards in front. Am getting new sod put in next week too!
YES, I'm in for RU. Will probably stay overnight again.
Hope all is well.

Forgive me but am new -what's an RU? Also what is the view of all the rain? Are our gardens better off with all the rain?

Hi memays,
A roundup is a BIG get together where we swap/trade plants with the group. Have lunch and tons of laughs and tips!! It's a great time to put names to faces with all you've been chatting with here at DG.

I'm sorry to say y'all that it looks like it will be next fall before I can host. Life has been keeping me on a merry go round these last few months and I just can't pull it all together in time.

So I'm going to mark and set a date now for 2014 calendar. Now no more thinking about it just plan it and see who will come!! Right!

At the RU you'll be able to get some really cool plants as freebies!!

I pop in & out here on DG and wanting to be more active when time allows maybe during the winter I'll have a chance to chat with a few of you.

Happy Fall Everyone!!!
