Ashcroft CiB plant swap this weekend

Ashcroft Communities in Bloom hosts their annual plant swap this Sunday in Heritage Place Park.

With spring approaching, area gardeners are just itching to get into their gardens and yards. Always eager to swap their “extra” plants and more than happy to receive something they don’t have, gardeners look forward to the annual Ashcroft Communities in Bloom Plant Swap.

This year’s Plant Swap will be held on Sunday, April 21 in Heritage Place Park. Because this is a plant “swap”, the success will depend on the quantity of plants that local residents bring in.

With that in mind, the Ashcroft Communities in Bloom committee asks that local residents take a little time to look around in their yards and split as many items as possible. Please try to pot them or place them in boxes – labels are great but not required.

Please bring any “swap” plants, etc., to the park at 9:30 am. The sale will begin at 10. No Early Birds!

Ashcroft Communities in Bloom thanks the people who take any plants to give a small donation. The funds will be used in the community on various Communities in Bloom projects.
