Plant Swaps – Spring, 2012

Here’s the info from the Mid-Cambridge Gardeners about their spring plant swap:

The Spring 2011 Mid-Cambridge PLANT SWAP will be on Saturday May 12 (not May 5*), noon to 2 pm.  Rain date—in case of DOWNPOUR—is Saturday, May 19, 12-2. The Mid-Cambridge plant swap is at Fayette Park (near the corner of Broadway and Fayette St., across from former Longfellow School).

Bring anything that’s growing in too much abundance in your garden. Elegant packaging not required, but please do write down the names of plants.   We expect to have perennials, biennial seedlings, seeds, indoor plants, catalogs, pots, and lots of “whatever.”  Feel free to just come, chat with neighbors, talk gardening.

* Please note that this Plant Swap will happen a week later than usual.

Our plant swap, at the McMath Community Garden in North Cambridge, is now scheduled for the next day, on Sunday, May 20 (not May 13), from 2 – 4 p.m.   Come by and share your extra plants or pick up a free plant from another gardener!


Plant Swap Today!

I’m hosting a neighborhood plant swap today with the coordinator of the McMath Community Garden (just across the commuter rail tracks). I was out digging up and dividing a bunch of perennials yesterday and plan to do some more today. I hope I’ll have some plant takers!

If you live in the North Cambridge area, please come by to share your extra plants, or pick up some free plants – or just encourage us! We’ll be out from 2 – 4 p.m.
