The Great Minnesota Plant Swap

I just heard about this...

Saturday, June 7, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Held at Otten Bros Nursery and Landscaping in Long Lake, MN

Sponsored by the Minnesota State Horticultural Society

Basically, you buy a "swapping license" for $5 (fees benefit the MN Horticultural Society, which does community and educational outreach) and receive swapping tickets... then you go around and pick out the plants you like. If you bring in your own plants and tools to swap, you get extra swapping tickets. The more you bring, the more you get to take home.

Otten Bros phone number is 952-473-5425 for more info.

It sounds like a good way to get rid of your extras while picking up new plants... wanted to share the info with my fellow Minnesota gardeners! :-)

Did anyone go to this? I couldn't make it and was wondering if I should put it on next year's calendar.

RE: The Great Minnesota Plant Swap

I think I'd be interested in attending next year. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
