Event Schedule

2:00-2:55 Class on successful seed starting: Class will cover starting seeds both indoors and out. Everything you need to know including containers, soil, watering, lighting and scheduling.

3:05-4:00: Class on perennial garden maintenance that will also cover propagating new plants from the garden. This class will begin in the classroom, then move outdoors for some hands-on learning in the Master Gardener Educational Garden where we will look at maintenance considerations, then divide and otherwise propagate some of the plants from the garden. Plants not needed in the garden will be available during our plant swap.

4:15 Seed / Plant Swap will begin (While you may attend just the plant swap, the room will not open until after the classes are over)

How the seed and plant swap will work:

  • The idea is to share plants and seeds with each other, and to help those who are new to gardening acquire seeds and plants to get started.
  • Bring in seeds from last year that were left over, seeds you ordered this year that you have too many of, seeds you collected from you garden or the wild
  • Bring plants that can be divided (or are already divided), cuttings, live stakes, scion wood, houseplants, bulbs, rhizomes, any part that can be shared
  • Bring anything else garden related that you think someone else could make use of.
  • We will have envelopes, zip locks, bags and such to carry things home in as well as tape and pens for labelling. Feel free to bring anything with you that will help in taking home material.
  • If it is not obvious what the seed, plant, or plant part you are sharing does or looks like please write a description or bring a picture if you have it.
