HAVE: Fall Plant Swap in Forsyth County
Start potting up all those extra plants in your yard and get ready for the plant swap to be held at the Forsyth County Agriculture Building located at 1450 Fairchild Rd in Winston Salem on September 26. Bring your extra plants to swap and perhaps come away with something that you have always wanted, but never found for your own gardens.
Craig Mauney, Forsyth County Horticulture Agent, will have a list of plants considered invasive to refer to so as not to invade the neighborhood. Also, if you have a plant that you're unsure of the name, bring it on and he'll try to tentatively identify it for the trade.
This swap is open to anyone that wants to trade plants, not only to Master Gardeners, so tell your neighbors and friends. If you have a plant to swap, you can attend.
All plants should be labeled with the botanical name, common name accepted if botanical name not known. You can write on a stick or even the side of the pot as long as it's labeled.
The actual swapping will begin at 11:00AM, so get there early to set up your plants and look over all the others.
The swap will go like this:
All the plants will be put together in a designated area. At 11:00 AM, we will call out for everyone to go in and get one plant. Once everyone has gotten one plant, we'll call out for everyone to go for another. This will continue until all plants are gone or until we just can't go any more.
Also, look for the annual fall plant swap in High Point tbd by rootdigger.
