At the conclusion of the April 22nd bi-monthly meeting, we will be hosting a community seed and plant start swap in front of the Church of Christ Scientist, 8300 Adelphi Road, Hyattsville 20783. Estimated start time between 12:30pm and 1:00pm, depending on the length of the meeting.
Stay and socialize after the meeting and find out who your fellow gardeners in the community are! Bring along any of the following you would like to share with your neighbors:
- Vegetable starts
- House plants or outdoor plants, in soil or as cuttings
- Miscellaneous small garden equipment (flower pots you don’t want, etc.)
We will be providing supplies for labeling and transporting seeds, but please bring any rooted plants in containers you are willing to part with ready to go or on hand for quick repotting. Here’s a link with instructions for how to make a pot out of a newspaper, or you can bring them in yogurt containers, soda bottles cut in half, pasta sauce jars, etc…
If possible, try to bring as much information about the plant with you as you can, such as species name, soil used, and sun preference. This will give its new owner the best chance at success.
It’s up to you whether you want to trade only, or simply gave away surplus. For those with no gardens of their own started, this might be your chance to learn more and get your first vegetables in the ground. I know I for one will be bringing plenty of these prolific Egyptian Walking Onions to give away – EVERYONE has a green thumb with this plant!
