The Fall Plant Exchange is Sunday, October 19, at Heffner Park, 42 Oswego Ave. The actual exchanging
starts at 1:30, so bring your labeled plants by 1:00 so we can make sure they are properly labeled,
sorted and be ready to begin on time. The best labels include: Latin name, common name and plant habits
Since we each tell the group what we have brought, it will speed things up if you bring a list of your
contributions. You can bring one plant or several. Pot up your plants now and keep them watered so they
look good for the exchange. Last minute potting up can result in pathetic looking plants that no one
really wants. Make sure the plants you bring are not considered invasive, such a common orange daylilies
or English ivy. Do some research (Google) if you are not sure.
No plants to exchange? No problem! You are welcome to bring finger food snacks, beverages and garden
related items, such as gardening books, tools, interesting clean pots, garden art, cuttings, seeds, etc.
We never have enough chairs, so bring a folding chair if you can. It would also would be helpful if you
could bring a name tag, sun screen, water, hat and containers for your bounty – smiles are optional, but fun!!
Here are the categories we use to organize the plants: Groundcovers, Grasses and Vines; House Plants/Tropicals;
Perennials-Shade; Perennials-Sun; Trees/Shrubs; Annuals; Seeds/Bulbs/Cuttings; Vegetables/Herbs; Pond Plants and
Miscellaneous Garden Items.
We will be selling bulbs left from the Street Festival. This sale will start at 1:00. Remember, you MUST be a
