Plant swap coming soon

Gardeners are invited to share and swap any unwanted or surplus plants or seeds they have.

Spring arrived early again this year, and many yards around town are showing lots of colour. The annual Communities in Bloom (CiB) Plant Swap is coming soon, so now is your chance to split 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 24 in the Heritage Park on Railway in Ashcroft. Because this is a plant swap, its 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’s open to everyone, and a great opportunity to get more plants for your yard.

With that in mind, the CiB 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 10:00. No early birds!

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