Plant Swap NEW DATE
Saturday, June 1st, 2013
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
Location: Parking lot across from Hennepin County Water Patrol in Spring Park
If you have plants to share - bring to give away. If you don’t have plants to share or are just getting started in gardening, come and find plants!  If you have plants to share, pull up your vehicle and give away from your trunk. The Plant Swap is free to members and $5 for non-members.

Swap Etiquette

  • Divide plants into smaller plants so there are more to go around
  • Label all plants with a permanent marker, use popsicle sticks, or recycle those pot tags from previous years and write on the back
  • Label with plant name, color and expected height
  • Put individual plants in plastic bags, coffee cans, milk cartons, plant pots, etc.
  • Keep plants moist
  • If invasive please indicate on the tag - some people want invasive plants for spreading on a hillside or areas hard to mow or where grass won’t grow
  • Anything for the garden, in the garden or about the garden will do!
    • Garden tools
    • Gardening books
    • Flower pots (please clean first)
    • House plants
    • Seeds, bulbs
    • Garden art
  • If you are sharing plants or looking for plants, list on the Westonka Horticulture Education facebook so people can bring what you want or plan to take what you bring.
  • We do ask that attendees limit plants taken so there are enough to go around, and limit to plants that are in the swap area. Please don’t be a plant hog.
