sunny43(Z 6 Pa.)March 25, 2007

Our plant swap is May 12 and just around the corner. It's time to start thinking on what we want and what we have to bring. This year along with all the additional fun items in store for you we will be having a special table set up for those who may have questions about their plants. Lots of free literature will be available to. Manning the table will be experience Master Gardeners. So please be sure and bring all of your questions to the swap and put these MG to work.

Be sure and check out our pictures from our last fall swap. TALK ABOUT FUN AND PLANTS!!!!

I want caterpillar host plants, please! : ) I have milkweed and parsley, am trying dill and fennel, but would love to grow anything else that caterpillars love to eat. Please contact me to arrange a trade if you have any caterpillar host plants. : )

I will start getting my plants ready now--I know I'll have lots of angel's trumpets, and I'm sure there's plenty of other stuff I can dig up.

I've been butterfly gardening for 6 years now and believe it or not I'm still buying new plants. I bought false nettle this year to try to attract red admirals to my garden. I don't have a button bush yet. I've considered it several times. I'm not sure it will survive in my garden, since I don't ever water! But I would love to give it a try. Have you had it long?
