Greenville Plant Swap 2014
I'm not the coordinator, but this is the message from them: Please come and join the local green thumbs for an afternoon plant swap.
Yes, a plant swap. No money needed, just something that has roots, could grow roots or came from a root. And remember, the more you give the more you receive. For every plant you bring, You take one home.
Here are the basics-
Where: Greenville Glen 1101 Garlington Rd, Greenville, SC 29615
When: Sunday April 27 from 1 until 3
If you need help dividing~please come about 15 min early. If you are pro divider- please come early and help.
We will potting dividing and mingling from 1 p.m. until the swap starts.
The first round pick will start at 1:45 pm
Tables, snacks, beverages will be available as will soil and pots but bring your own gloves.
Please remember to bring----
Plastic grocery store bags
Notepad- Getting peoples names and # if you want to trade again or you have questions about a plant you may have gotten from them. And to write info about your plants.
Name your plants- I buy a cheap mini-blind from Habitat, cut the strings out, cut in to 5" strips and write on them with a china marker. Much cheaper than plant tags and the china marker(wax pencil) doesn't fade.if know the actual cultivar name, please mark that as well. EX- Shasta Daisy, cultivar is "Alaska"- if you don't know, that's o.k. too.
Cards with your name and # for handing out.
Here are a few of the "Haves" that participants plan to bring for the swap-
Daylily- different kinds
Sedum "Autumn Joy"
