Plants like "Love in the Mist," Money Plant, Hummingbird Vine, fuscia Bee Balm, Hyacinth Beans, Baptisia Blue and a variety of gourds were all available for attendees to take home with them.
Byrd said unique plants aren't the only way you can decorate your garden.
"If there's a plate in your house you don't want anymore, set it out there," she said. "There's all kinds of things to make your garden beautiful."
Lee Prigge, who took home some Holly Hock and cone flowers among other things, brought her fuscia variant of Bee Balm. She said she doesn't know where it came from, because it was already planted at her house by the previous residents.
Brutie King, assistant director at the library, brought Baptisia Blue, a plant many people were talking about. She found the plant, which has blue-purple flowers and bright green leaves running up its stalk, in North Carolina with her daughter.
Hurt, whose garden gets "repeat drive-bys" from travelers who want to see what he's done with it this time, brought a couple long dipper gourds, both with the normal gourd shape at the bottom, and an extensive, straight neck giving the appearance of a walking stick.
Hurt has many plants in his garden, including a water lotus and native Kentucky plants like sweetgrass and maiden fern.
"I've gone in weird places to get stuff," he said. "I've climbed in trees and around fences and between rocks."
Byrd said the library is planning another plant swap for next spring, and will have another seed swap next year.
"We will be doing this next year and we want it to be bigger and better," she said.
