In response to yesterday’s post on free resources for local
gardeners, one of our readers shared a favorite resource for finding DFW
friendly plants: the Ft. Worth plant swap which takes place this Saturday.
It will be a perfect morning to gather with fellow gardeners and trade plants.
Fragrant sprigs of mint, irises, rose cuttings and bulbs…everyone brings their
favorite and takes home something new! Here is the scoop from our terrific
Bring plants to trade, but if you have no plants, try garden art,
potting soil, pots, or plant hangers ~ anything that a gardener might
like. We have gardeners that will accept baked goods as trade, or
perhaps gift certificates from McDonald’s, Sonic or Wal-mart.
While we arrange pre-trades…almost every gardener brings extras
to the party.
What: Learn more about the Fort Worth Gardenweb plant trade event here.
If you want to participate in trades beforehand, you can take part
in the Gardenweb forum chat by clicking here and here.
When: Saturday, April 10 ~ 9:00am
Where: At the pavilion in front of the Fort Worth Zoo.
Directions: From I-30 at the western edge of downtown Ft Worth, go
SOUTH on University not quite a mile; turn left into the zoo area, & follow the
path through several curves. When you see the ball fields on your right, slow
down. Turn right into the parking area, hop out, & do a happy dance!
Directions are verbatim from Lin ~ I love any directions that end with
“hop out & do a happy dance!” :)
Cost: The event is free, but take a moment to read the trade tips before attending.
Thanks Lin for this great tip!
Enjoy & Share! :)
