Takoma Horticultural Club’s Spring Plant Exchange is scheduled for Sunday, May 19, at Heffner Park on Oswego Ave., very close to the leafmold (mulch) pile.
Please, please label your plants: common name and Latin also (if possible). Include light requirements and growth habit. If your plant spreads/grows quickly let the other gardeners be forewarned. Please don’t bring plants considered invasive, such as common orange daylilies and English ivy. If you are not sure, do some research or post a question on the Listserv. You’ll get plenty of opinions!
By the way, it is not too early to start potting up. To keep these potted plants in good shape, remember to keep them watered.
Native plants are especially desirable these days! (Although poison ivy is considered native, please leave it home!)
If you are a new gardener or just don’t have extra plants or time to dig, you are welcome to bring: gardening magazines, cookbooks, interesting (clean) pots, garden ornaments/tools and of course finger food (brownies?) and drinks.
Help us out: please wear a recycled name tag if you have one. This helps us get to know each other, especially new members and saves trees and the club money. We also suggest: sun screen, hats, and water. If you are able, please bring a chair (We always run out of chairs).
Remember, you must be a club member to participate in the Plant Exchange. Bring a $12 check made out to THC if you want to join or renew your membership at this event. Come back to our website regularly for more details as we get closer to May 19.
Hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please get in touch ~ Carole Galati ~ email@example.com
