Gardenweb is the online source for anything related to growing plants.  From houseplants to trees to heirloom tomatoes, if it has to do with plants, you can talk about it or trade it on Gardenweb.   I’ve been able to acquire plants from all over the country by swapping with the generous people on this forum.
