It may still feel wintry, but spring is on the way. March is an excellent month to divide and move dormant plants. Annual seeds can be traded for spring planting. ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s time to dream big for the coming summer.
Rain or shine, Puget Sound gardeners gather to share and exchange plants and knowledge with all. The Green Elephant Plant Swap is hosted in North Redmond, WA, at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross; The site offers parking, covered areas, indoor facilities, kitchen, memorial garden, grass labyrinth and playground. It is five minutes from I-405 and I-520.

How it works: No sales, just exchanges and freebies, please.
Tailgating Encouraged. The format for the trade is like a tailgate party. Traders exchange expert gardening information as well as plant materials. In two hours all the deals are sealed. We have plenty of new parking.
Free Stuff. Many gardeners generously share plants from the abundance of their gardensÃ¯Â¿Â½An excellent way to begin your garden. Also an excellent way to thin out that giant patch of shasta daisies, etc. There is always a pile of plants free for the sharing at the swap.
What if I have nothing to trade? Cookies and chocolate work like money at the Green Elephant!
