THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: NO SALES, Only exchanges and freebies, please. Tailgating Encouraged. Bring your plants from Propagation; grown from seeds, shovel pruned, reseeded plants, or extras from a large nursery purchase. Size doesn’t matter. The format for the trade is like a tailgate party. Traders exchange expert gardening information as well as plant materials. In two hours all the deals are sealed. We have plenty of parking. Label your plants with botanical and common names, color, height, width, etc. if possible. Pictures are also great.
FREE STUFF: The last half hour (11:30–12:00) you MAY be able to pick up some free plants from gardeners that are willing to give it away. Many gardeners generously share plants from the abundance of their gardens. This is an excellent way to begin your garden and an excellent way to thin out that giant patch of Shasta Daisies, etc.
WHAT IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO TRADE: Cookies and chocolate work like money at the Plant Swap!
