Exchange of plants
April 8, 2016 8:09am CST
I made two visits this morning. I spent a lot of time looking around their gardens. One of the gardens did have something I was interested in and could get a few plants which they most willingly gifted to me. I got a visit this evening from one of those who I had visited the morning and they had a feast too collecting cuttings and plants from my garden. The barter was a happy deal. I have come to believe that exchange of plants is the only way to have additions in a garden as buying seeds as per my experience is not always successful. How do you go about adding varieties in your garden?

Wow, that is good. You can learn from their experience in taking care of the plants too. Gardening is really an activity with a lot of trials and errors. Sometimes a plant that grows well in one part of the garden just does not grow well in another part of the garden.

i prefer that plant swappin' myself 'n 've done so quite a bit throughout the years - also pond fish, lol. sadly, there's nobody 'round these days to do such with. these days, i propogate what i can fer my own personal enjoyment. tryin' to get some more bougainvillea rooted't the moment. not that i can plant 'em outdoors such's yerself, but i'm thinkin' 'bout makin' a few into bonsai so they'll not take'p so much room durin' the winter months.
