Bring a Plant to the Plant Swap!
It’s Spring! Now is the time to choose one of the plants from your garden (or garden shop) to trade at our Community Day Plant Swap!
Bring a plant, pick a plant to take home! If you have some perennial or reseeded annual flowers which are beginning to pop up in your garden, place it in a pot! Set that pot in the garden so it can continue to grow through the spring’s warm rains!
Bring that happy plant to the Plant Swap table and look for one to take home with you. Label your plant with its name and features you love about it.
You may also bring an extra clump of a flowering shrub or perennial. No plants to spare in your garden? It’s ok to swap a purchased annual!
Can’t think of which plants to swap? Desirable plants which are pollinator favorites include bee balm, echinacea, elderberry, mountain mint, pink muhly grass, wild blue indigo, thread leaf coreopsis, fringed bleeding heart. Desirable annual plants include zinnia, nasturtium, celosia, and cleomethose.
Volunteers will be happy to hold your chosen plant until you leave the grounds.
Share your love of gardens and pollinators with friends at the Plant Swap!
