WHAT IS A PLANT SWAP?

A plant swap is a friendly gathering of people who love gardening. They bring plants, (outdoor and indoor) seedlings, seeds, bulbs & cuttings to share with other fellow gardeners.

Plants will be organized in alphabetical order.  When the swap begins, people who bring plants select one plant at a time for the first several rounds, after which, folks without plants to swap will have the opportunity to select as well.  There will be plenty of plants for everyone –

GUIDELINES & RULES:

  • Bring plants, seeds, cuttings, bulbs, seedlings, etc. to share.  If you have plants, please arrive at 8:00am to set up.
  • No garden paraphernalia, please, just plants.
  • Please neatly label & pot/bag/box all plants with common name.  When possible, provide botanical name (including cultivar).  Also, if possible, provide photos of plants with notes, if you have any.
  • If you do not have plants to share, you are welcome to attend.  The swap begins at 8:40am.  People with plants to share will select first.
  • Kindly leave your pets at home.
  • No selling.

WHAT TO BRING?

  • Plants, seeds, cuttings, bulbs, seedlings, etc.
  • Notebook and pen for jotting names and info about your newly acquired plants
  • Baggies and paper towels for any new cuttings received
  • Boxes, bags and/or a garden cart for storing and transporting your plants

TIPS:
