For those who missed the MAG swap at GardenGrandma's or who just didn't get enough, Washington Gardener magazine is hosting its 5th annual plant swap this Saturday June 16.

Details:
What: a Plant Swap -- bring and receive free plants to expand your garden

Time: starting at 10am bring your plants for sorting by category (shade perennial, groundcover, herb, etc.) -- swap starts promptly at 10:30am -- do not be late (the swap goes fast and can be over in a matter of minutes!) - after swapping, we can socialize, snack, buy farmer's market goodies, and trade more info on the plants we brought - we plan to conclude and be cleaned up by 11:00am. so you will have the rest of the day to plant and enjoy your Saturday.

Place: H Street Farmers Market at H & 13th NE -- near Union Station (the market runs from 9am-12n) NOTE NEW LOCATION!!! No longer at 8th Street!

Who: anyone is welcome as are any of your friends, relatives, or neighbors -- it is FREE -- and feel free to forward on this invitation
. How: be prepared to BRIEFLY introduce yourself and describe your plant swap offerings

Bring:
~ a name tag - home-made or from work or school-whatever works
~ pen and paper - you will want to take lots of notes as folks describe the plants and their growing conditions
~ plants to swap - pot them up NOW -- the longer they can get settled in their pots, the better their chance of success and survival - (no plants to
share? see note below)
~ labels - fully label all your swap plants with as much info as you have
- optimally that will include: common and scientific name, amount of sun
needed, amount of water needed, any other special care notes, and color of the blooms (if it is not currently in flower)

What NOT to bring: common orange daylilies* and any invasive species - What if you do not have plants to swap? Come anyway! Bring refreshments like cold drinks and yummy finger foods to share with the other swappers:-)
Be sure to also bring cups, napkins, utensils, serving spoons, etc., if your food item requires those for consuming it.
