It was great to meet so many of the great people on garden.ie but I was sorry to learn afterwards that there were people at the gathering that I never got a chance to meet.
The day was great but it would have been better if we had had a reason to return indoors after the plant swap in the car park. I think many people left after the plant swap and a lot more socialising needed to be done really (in my opinion).
I tried to keep my best plants for firm garden.ie 'friends' but I then thought I was being a bit mean so changed that tack. The result was that by the time I met up with Jools O & Rita D (for example) I really didn't have anything worthwhile left so sorry about that, ladies.
I did come away with some great plants so thank you to everyone who swapped with me. And more importantly, it was great to meet you all and lets do it again some time...
Jools O has started a discussion about another plant swap on the TALK page, under plant & seed swap - check it out and maybe contributute...
