Does anybody know if there are any plant swaps or ANYTHING during the year here in N. Nevada? I live in the Reno area, and am new to gardening but I would love to go if there is! I just can't find any info for any.
I have some stuff available now if you are interested. Otherwise it will go to the compost pile.
Hard neck garlicÂs
Some perennial flowers
Later after it gets cold I have choke cherry and golden currents.
I dont need anything in return now.
I don't know about swaps, the Master Gardeners have their plant sale (more of a feeding frenzy) in early May. They also have an educational lecture series in February-March, the program from last year can be found here: http://www.unce.unr.edu/western%20new/events/2006%20Gardening%20in%20Nevada%20flyer.pdf
I'd recommend calling up or stopping by the Extension office and talking to the people at the horticluture desk. You can check out their website here http://www.unce.unr.edu/mastergardener/mastergardener.html but it takes some looking around to find stuff.
The Arboretum at Rancho San Rafel park also has classes. Look here: http://www.maycenter.com/
