MG ANNUAL PLANT SWAP AND LEARN
THURSDAY MAY 11, 2017
This replaces our regular MG Meeting
TIMES: Bring plants at 12:30 or earlier if you have a lot of plants, so we can get them all organized. Swap and Learn to start at 1:00 pm.
WHERE: Clysta Willette Nature Trail
We will start with the educational part of the swap by asking everyone to tell us something about their plants. Their names, any specific instructions, why you like them, any warnings about its nature etc. You may want to take notes. This might be something you can pick up later if not today.
The swap itself will start with those bringing the most plants and then fewer and quickly working toward those who brought none. If you don't have any plants to bring. There have always been plenty of plants for all to bring home something.
WHAT TO BRING?
Plants you have saved for the swap, any extra plants that did not get to plant sale, even plants recently potted up.
If recently potted, please note this on the ID form for the benefit of the taker. These plants do not need to be in as great of shape as the plant sale.
Bulbs, rhizomes, seeds: These can be bundled with one label per bundle, or several per group.
Cuttings from plants you know will start new plants. (Please bring shopping bags for takers to put the cuttings into).
Plant ID's and your name with all plants: We all cannot know abut all plants that are brought, especially when they are small. Every year we have many plants left behind because they are not identified and do not have the name of the Master Gardener who brought them.
Boxes, bags etc. to keep the plants you are taking home separate from others.
Any questions: Please contact me.
