For some annoying reason to do with the length of the sidebars ... there is usually a gap between this and the events coming up. I haven't time to rewrite things to fill in the gap ... so please scroll.

Plant Exchange at Stoney Creek Public Library

Saturday, 13 May 2017 10:00am-12:00pm                                                posted April 12/117
Stoney Creek Library, 920 Sunningdale Road East ... will be held outdoors ... ph. 519-930-2065

Plant exchanges are a way to share your own plants, seeds, bulbs, and cuttings ... and make some space in your garden without having to compost plants that have spread too far!  It’s also a way to add someone else’ treasures to your own garden.  It’s likely you’ll have a chat with another gardener who is bringing and selecting, and volunteers from the Master Gardeners will be at most locations to answer gardening questions and help identify and select plants. 

These plant exchanges are free!  (and really, no one will complain if you take a plant and don’t have something to trade)  Please label anything you bring.  A daylily may be the most familiar thing in the world to you, but to someone else it might look like a corn plant or a yucca! :-)    And leakproof containers like plastic bags or yogourt tubs are much appreciated!
