Did you buy or start too many seedlings for your garden this year? Perhaps you have more seeds than you can use or houseplants running wild. Why not consider trading your surplus for some new varieties? KFPL is holding its first-ever Plant Swap at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, at the Isabel Turner branch. This is a chance for anyone with too many plants, cuttings, seedlings or seeds to trade their extras for something different or just to give them away to a new home. Drop in to share your extras and your knowledge with gardeners of all kinds and skill levels. We’ll also have a selection of gardening books and DVDs for you to borrow.
Please bring your trades-ins inside plastic bags, or in pots inside a plastic bag, carton or cardboard box. Labelling your trades-ins with their species and/or variety name would be a big help for whoever might be taking them home. Do you have a mystery plant or seed you’d like to identify? Bring it along and maybe someone will be able to tell you what it is.
The Plant Swap will take place at the Isabel Turner branch on Saturday, May 18, at 2 p.m. and is open to adults and teens. This is a drop-in event, open to everyone free of charge and with no registration required to attend, but if you'd like to reserve some table space to display your trade-ins, you may do so at events.kfpl.ca or by phoning (613) 549-8888 as of 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 4.
