Secret tropical/subtropical plant trade

Hattiesburg, MS(Zone 8a)

Shipping is extended through the 30th

If you do not see your name and you have signed up, please email me your username on Dave's and your name and address.

3 tropical or subtropical plants of your choice will be mailed to your secret trader-examples Banana, gingers, elephant ears, brugmansia, etc. These are only examples and the trade is not limited to only those plants

Please do not feel obligated to send more than 3 plants. Although some traders like to send more, which is fine, but it is not necessary.

Trades will be chosen by luck of the draw.

I know I don't need more plants, but if I sent three, then I'll have room for three new ones, right???

Mount Hermon, LA(Zone 8b)

Of course Cala! And digging up the plants MUST have misplaced a lot of soil, so you'll have extra room for more than just three new ones! Think vertical! LOL.

Mine is on it's way south. I left the little note card I was including sitting on my kitchen counter that says who it's from and that it is for the tropical secret trade.


Archer/Bronson, FL(Zone 8b)

So, Dott, it really is a secret tropical trade. But you can bet, you can be tracked. I was in the regular secret trade. My sender didn't ID herself, but I tracked her down.

Anyway, mine went out today too, and since I'm not really good with geography, I'm guessing it went northbynorthwest, okay, okay, it's just plain ole northwest. But it's on its way.

I hope she likes what I sent.


Premont, TX(Zone 9b)

I haven gotten an email telling me who to send too >>>.........

Decatur, IN(Zone 5a)

I mailed mine today...going south. This is my first secret trade and can't wait to see what I get. Thanks all who participated and Barbara for putting this together.


Decatur, GA(Zone 7a)

I just have to ask. Is this to remain secret? Do we not tell the person we send it to who we are?

Hattiesburg, MS(Zone 8a)

Pins2006 You can tell who you are on your package. That is part of the fun-getting to know new plant folks.

Hattiesburg, MS(Zone 8a)

Did everyone get their trader sent to them. Several traders indicated they had not received the name of their secret trader, even though I had mailed them. If not, contact me.
