How the Plant Swap Works
The garden tour will also feature our annual spring plant swap. Members are encouraged to bring up to six extras from their gardens to swap. Try to pot plants a week or two in advance so they look their best on the day of the swap and also provide descriptive labels. This could include name as well as light, water and soil requirements if known, height, width, bloom time and color.
We will conduct the plant swap first, starting at 10:30, and then tour the gardens. Don’t be late if you intend to participate in the swap!
You can bring annuals, perennials and gardening tools you want to swap. Members who bring plants get first choice in what to take.
Note: Sharing plants and soil carries a risk of inadvertently introducing the invasive Asian jumping worm into your garden. As a prevention, you can dispose of shared soil in your trash (not your compost!) and rinse the plants roots with water before planting in your garden. Of course, if you know that your soil is already infested, please don’t share plants.
