Get ready to swap – plants

Ashcroft Communities in Bloom holds their annual plant swap event on the 27th.

It looks like spring has finally arrived and 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 27 in Heritage 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 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 9:30. The sale will begin at 10. No Early Birds!

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