Neighborhood Plant & Seed Swap

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017 - 4 to 6 pm - Red Cloud City Park

Come join us for the 2nd annual Neighborhood Plant Swap! Divide those bulbs! Dig up seedlings! Root some clippings! Bring some seeds! Or come empty-handed. We hope to see you there!

Start now! 2-3 weeks before the swap, take your clippings and do reseach online about getting them to root. Some clippings only need to be set in a vase of water and put in a sunny window. Others may need you to nick the stem and dip it in rooting hormone.

Dig in! One week before the swap (or the morning of! Yup, I'm the queen of procrastination) dig up your plants, collect seeds, divide buldbs. Set them in containers. Don't forget to keep the plants watered or they may die before the swap. (Seeds and bulbs or tubers don't need watering).

Tell me more! Label your plants with as much detail as you can. At the very least, the tag should have the plant name, preferred light conditions and height. 


Got Questions? Contact Carol Kumke at 402-746-3417 or Tracy Tucker at 402-806-8467 for more info. Bring your own table for swapping, and your own boxes, flats or carriers for taking your new plants home!
