Get-together 2018 - Plant Swap arrangements

11 January 2018 19:08:15

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all getting ready for the great Plant Swap on Saturday! 

For those who may not have participated before here are a few pointers:

1. Having a list of "what you promised to who", and "what you asked for from who" is very useful to have with you! 

2. Labels on plants are very helpful - even if you don't have the full title of a plant!

3. To make life easier for yourself put the name of the person you promised the plant to on the label - maybe on the back.

4. Its really nice if people put their OWN name on the label too! I have arrived home from previous gatherings with lovely plants and no idea who they came from!

And since the weather for Saturday is not brilliant try and keep to the timetable! We should all be indoors by 12 o'clock so leave bringing in your Kris Kringle until after that! There is a carefully worked out system that avoids people getting their own gift back, and it takes a little time, so please be patient!

THanks Hazel

Sorry I won't have any plants to swap as travelling down by bus!

Thanks, Hazel. I hope the weather improves by Saturday.

Thanks Hazel, looking forward to it all.

OK, I will be there Hazel as my car arrived home about 2 hours ago and my mechanic says it is as good as new (i.e. there is so many new parts in it at this stage!!!)

Anyway, see you all Saturday

Peri, not a good excuse.  That means we'll just have to make it to Seaview!

Plant swapping is not compulsory, Periwinkle! We'll be delighted to have your company!

Very sorry, Hazel. I will not be able to come, tomorrow. I will miss you all, and I congratulate and thank you for all the enormous effort you put into it, year after year. Brendan would be proud of you. As one of the senior members, perhaps the senior, I just don't have the energy right now. Add to that, the expected bad weather and some trouble with my car,(also pretty ancient), it is just not on.

   Wish you all the best, and look forward to lots of pictures. Please convey my apologies.

That’s a pity Peter. There will be lots of journals I’m sure. ;).

Peter you will be missed. I do hope energy levels rise in the springtime and that you make the proposed (still just a proposal) summer get together. Also of course Hazel many thanks for all your very hard work and all those who chip in to help.

Thanks PCON (Peter) Such a pity you can't make it! and Scrubber (Peter) are you droppping enormous hints? Definitely think we should have a gathering when the weather is less horrid!


Moya Moya 12 January 2018 21:50:38

I'm sorry you're not coming PCON but delighted the other Peter is - Scrubber it wouldn't be the same without you.

I second that proposal for a Summer get together and maybe on a Sunday too as the roads a quieter.
