Now is the time to reclaim garden space that has been overrun by sprawling perennials and to divide up those perennial clumps. Dividing these clumps helps the original plants regain their vigor and yields additional plants. And, there's no better way of sharing the abundance of your garden thinnings than a Plant Swap.
We'll begin the meeting with our always scrumptious potluck and then proceed with the swap. We'll have 3 categories of plants:
1.) the plentiful, where there is likely enough for every interested member (this can include seeds and seedlings)
2.) plants of limited quantity that will be "raffled,"
3.) plants that have a price tag or barter attached to them.
Each gardener will share information about the plant needs, yields, and characteristics. Invite your friends to share in this marvelous expression of community networking. And, if you happen not to have any plants to share, come anyway! We'll send you home with your arms full!
One important note: Please be extremely careful not to bring plants that are overly opportunistic (like Bishop's Goutweed, etc.).
