2015 Spring Hancock Native Plant Swap

Mother's Cafe & Garden just confirmed that we can have the Spring Plant Swap on April 18th, 7:30-9:30am.

The wet weather should make digging up baby plants easy next week!

If you've never been, here's how it works:

  • pot up and label some transplants, cuttings, or bring seeds
  • set them in the appropriate area: Sun, Shade, Part Sun/Shade, or Water
  • look around for plants that you would love to have
  • Take as many home as you brought

Many people just hang out the whole time talking about plants, helping others id mystery plants, and generally enjoying their coffee, free doughnut holes, and all things gardening.  Master Gardeners and NWF Habitat Stewards will also be there to assist with plant identification.

Our mission is to make all yards in our neighborhoods more beautiful and easier to maintain, while consuming less water...for free!  

The Hancock Native Plant Swap is now in its fourth year.
What do you think of the swap?  Is it a worthy cause?
If you think so, please come out with a plant or two to show your support.

Free doughnut holes, BYOC.   

Hope to see you there!  Please forward to people/groups that might be interested.

more info:  Hancock Native Plant Swap  "Like" us to get updates on plants that will be there.
No Fall swap this year, so don't miss this one!

Thank you to regular Hancock participants and a special thank you to Rosemary Vaughn, Hancock resident and Master Gardener, for always volunteering to assist.
