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.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
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 9:00am 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 10:00am. People with plants to share will select first.
