Welcome Autumn! We had so much fun at our June Plant Swap we’re doing it again! “Swap”ortunities abound!
Come join us on Saturday, October 5th for our Fall Plant Swap!
While you prepare your gardens for the coming season you might be considering that a little “remodeling” is in order. As all true gardeners in the Pacific NW know, fall is the perfect time to plant shrubs, perennials, and bulbs. So, now is the time to swap your “too-muches” for your “gotta-haves”! Let’s divide and conquer now in preparation for this fun event!
Date: Saturday, October 5th
Where: Learning Gardens Laboratory, 6801 SE 60th Avenue, Portland
Timeline: 9:30am Arrive with your plants to swap. 10:00am to 11:00am Swap plants! 11am Plant Swap-ends. Take your plants. Remainders will be donated.
What to bring:
* Plants to swap and share: perennials, evergreens, ornamentals, houseplants, bulbs, perennial herbs, even seeds! Bring plants in pots/containers, already labeled, along with growing condition requirements.
* Any garden art or garden tools that need a new home.
* A cardboard box to carry your newly acquired plants home.
* A friend who might have plants to swap (guests are more than welcome to join-in the swap).
No worries if you don’t have any plants to swap – just bring an empty box to fill – we know there will be extra plants needing new homes!
Note: No Invasive plants! We want to make sure not to share invasive plants. Ivy, Lesser Celandine, and Pokeweed come to mind. To learn more about invasive plants: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/article/98648
If you have a plant that can act like a thug but is non-invasive – be sure to share that information on the plant label so the plant adopter will know what to expect.
This event will take place rain or shine. We’re gardeners by gosh!
No RSVP required. Just come join-in the fun! Now get diggin and dividing!
