Ashcroft plant swap held this Sunday

Ashcroft Communities in Blooms holds its annual plant swap this Sunday in Heritage Place Park downtown.

Spring arrived early this year and as a result, many yards around town are showing lots of colour already. Ashcroft’s annual Communities in Bloom Plant Swap is coming up soon so now is your chance to split any perennials or shrubs you have too many of and bring them to the swap.

This year’s Plant Swap will be held on Sunday, April 26 in Heritage Park. Because this is a plant swap, the success will depend on the quantity of plants that local residents bring in. Remember that you don’t have to bring something to take something; it is open to everyone and a great opportunity to get more plants for your yard.

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 plants etc. to swap at 9:30am. The sale will begin at 10. No Early Birds!

Communities in Bloom thankfully accepts donations at the plant swap. All donations are used to assist with local projects.
