HAVE: Plant Swap in Belton this Saturday!
EVENT: Fall Plant Swap
DATE: September 30th
TIME: 8:30 till 1:00pm +
PLACE: Bell County County Extension Agency
This Saturday is our Fall Plant Swap. We'll be meeting at the most awesome site... behind the classroom of the Bell County Master Gardeners and next to the Greenhouse. (Next door to the Scott & White Clinic)
Providing that you bring a chair, we'll be sitting behind the classroom and using their tables for our plants. Although this is not a Master Gardener event, many will also be coming, so bring your gardening questions at the same time.
This is a pot luck plant swap... so bring whatever you have. Please bring rooted plants and label them to the best of your ability so you know what you're trading. You'll be the expert on that plant since it grows in your own yard. You'll be sharing that information with others there.
Don't have any plants? Don't let that stop you... bring some good potting soil, pots, seeds, tools and anything else that would cause a gardener to want to trade a plant for you item.
If you want to continue the visiting through lunch, bring something to add to the table: casserole, dessert, drinks, napkins, and so forth. Bring your good books on plants for Central Texas so everyone can look through them.
We'll start setting up at 8:30am and probably start winding down after lunch around 1:30pm.
By all means, bring a friend or kids. We'll have access to see the Demonstration Vegetable Garden and check out the Master Gardener's Greenhouse while you are there.
You'll want to plan on coming back on October 21st to the Fall Plant Sale if you see something you want. Time is short so get busy potting up those plants.
Most everyone that is coming have never come to a plant swap before. So, let's show 'em how to put one on.
