Fall Auction!

Our annual fundraising event. Bring any garden-related items you are donating with you to the swap. It's so much fun!

Welcome to the Middle Tennessee Plant Swap website! We started as a group of friendly folks that met on the online gardening forum GardenWeb more than 25 years ago, but since then we've become a community of plant lovers, gardeners, and swappers from all parts of Tennessee (and even a few who travel from other states). We get together twice a year in the spring and fall at Henry Horton State Park, beside the beautiful Duck River in Chapel Hill, TN.

We all come together to swap plants, eat a delicious potluck, and enjoy great fellowship. Besides all our swapping and eating, each spring we have a guest speaker who teaches us something new. Past topics have included winter sowing, composting, rooting plants using florist oasis, lasagna gardening, growing native plants, daylily hybridizing, and how to make Hypertufa items for your garden. At the fall swap, we change it up and have an auction full of garden-related items to bid on (so bring your cash). Everyone is welcome to join us at one of the most beautiful places on earth!

Beyond our in-person swap events, we have a very active Facebook group, where you can learn all about our event and meet hundreds of experience Tennessee gardeners, who are happy to share their garden pictures, their knowledge -- and most of all -- their plants. Our event has been featured throughout the state of Tennessee in newspapers and publications, as well as on NPT's Volunteer Gardener television show.

Whether you come in spring or fall (or both), we guarantee you'll have the best time!
