HAVE: Allen Plant Swap

The Allen Garden Club along with the Friends of the Allen Public Library are sponsoring a plant and seed swap on Saturday, October 13th at the Allen Public Library in their courtyard. This event is our first city-wide plant swap and we are helping our library celebrate 40 years in Allen. The Allen Garden Club will provide free refreshments and door prizes. Please bring your divisions and cuttings in containers. Iris and daylily plants are okay bareroot as long as they were dug that week. Seeds should be in envelopes or ziplock type of bag and labeled. Please label your plants. Bring empty flats or boxes to carry home your new plants. This is a free event and is a great way to get new plants for your garden.

I'm bringing seeds, flame acanthus, buffalo currant, daylily hybrids, pink yarrow, native passionvine, and more. The other garden club members always have lots of nice plants to share too.

Directions to the Allen Public Library from Highway 75: Exit onto McDermott and go east. Get into the left lane. Turn left on Allen Drive. Go past 4-way stop at Main Street. The library is just about another block down on your right. Parking is in the back and north side. We hope to see you there!

Great! See you there! I'm still digging more plants from my garden to bring. I still have to dig up the yarrow, daylilies and iris. I have plenty of garlic chives and Rosemary that is growing from cuttings too.

Just bringing this back to the top to remind everyone in the area that the Allen Plant Swap is a week from this Saturday. If you haven't dug your plants yet, start digging this week. I dug up a sweet autumn clematis for the swap the other day and more coreopsis. I'm going to need our truck to haul everything that I've dug for the swap, so I will have plenty to give away to those who are just starting out.
