This thread is a great idea! Pj, I have been very close to your home many times in the last month. I have been to I B Compost on Filmore by 104th about 5 times. I would guess we are about 30 minutes apart.

well now you have to have coffee...and exchange plants and idea's ^_^

Bay City, MI(Zone 6a)

ask terry to make this a sticky thread

Jenison, MI(Zone 6b)

A cup of tea and plant exchange would be awesome. We could have a plant swap for just don't have that collection of plants to swap. I did however "grow" 300 too many coleus from seed this year...hope my wife likes them :)

Au Gres, MI(Zone 5a)


If you have a Farmers Market, sell them there...


Jenison, MI(Zone 6b)


We actually have several but I dont have the time. I would rather be working on the house :) I bought a pack of seeds fo a few bucks so, I plan on just giving them away to friends and family that colorful full shade plants. Great idea though!

And yes, I'll be down there very soon, and I'll let you know first.

And I'll bring at least one plant. I'm movin' and shakin' everything here, so there will be more than one!

I went back to the beginning of trhis year and added all the newbies.
We now have 5 - maybe 6 West Michiganders! It's getting downright cozy.

Thats good...think there just Cindy & Paul around me...I live about 50 miles from Toledo..

Jenison, MI(Zone 6b)

Actually, 95 % of the space I have is full sun. Shade is just a little tougher to plant for me. I don't have much experience w/ full/part shade. Glad to see we have some people on our side of the state. Sounds like we need to do some recruiting...

Plainwell, MI(Zone 5b)

Well when and where? What are we doing? Who are we meeting? We probably could talk 1Birdie us some where also. She LOVES coffee! We have meet a couple of times and have had a great time. Ronna
