Come out to The Village at Fairview located at Highway 75 and Stacy Rd. (NE corner) on Saturday, October 2 from 9 am until 12 noon for our fall plant swap. Please bring your plants in containers - all labeled. Seeds are welcome in labeled envelopes. We'll have the swap at the new Community Gardens located along the north side of the property just north of the Macy's store near the big fountain and Purple Cow. This event is free and is sponsored by the Allen Garden Club and The Village of Fairview.

Other than your self and plants, is there anything else you recommend to bring. First plant swap.

The Village at Fairview is providing tables and a couple tents. You might want to bring an empty flat or produce box to carry any new plants home. I'm looking forward to seeing you there!

I have been busy digging a lot of my plants that have multiplied: rock rose, turk's cap, lyreleaf sage, black-eyed Susans (Fulgida goldsturm), buffalo currant, pink yarrow, sweet autumn clematis, daylilies, etc. I'm still digging plants, so will probably have more by the end of the week.

I have several each of Elizabeth Traub & Ellen Bosanquest and 1 Emma Jones Crinums plus a couple of Blue River and Plum Crazy Hibiscus, Turks Cap, a few Brugs and a bunch of either Lycoris squamigera & radiata in a grab bag mix. I renovated an area while they were dormant that contained both. I can't tell which is which when they are dormant.

It will be interesting to see what else will be there.
