The meaning of neighborly get-togethers! Trade snippings, seedlings and rootings. It’s fun and saves you money for varieties you’ve wanted.
Here’s how the Calloway’s and Cornelius Perennial Swap works:
Step 1: Post what you have and what you want in the blog below. If you have extra bulbs, roots or divided perennials list them to share. If you’re looking for something specific, post it in the blog.
Step 2: Browse the Perennial Swap blog and create your shopping list. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, post a note to inquire if someone has what you want. Invite your friends, neighbors and family members to join in the fun. The more gardeners who come the more plants to trade.
Step 3: Come to the Perennial Swap and meet up to exchange and trade. Agree to meet at the swap and exchange plants. Arrive at the swap, get a free bottle of water and start shopping. Visit and trade plants.
