Do you love a good trade?
The Mahoning County Extension office is hosting a Bring One, Take One plant exchange!
CHECK YOUR GARDEN & YOUR HOME:
Perennials, Shrubs, and Houseplants are all eligible to be exchanged!
•Be sure the plant is clean of insects and weeds.
•Invasive plants will not be accepted.
•ID your plant. If you cannot, MGV’s will help.
•Optional, add your name to the label.
•Place your plants in a clean pot or double
bag with some original soil left on the roots.
The BOTO plant exchange will be held outside adjacent to the parking lot. Plants can be checked in beginning at 9 am and the exchange will start at 10 am. Participants may bring as many plants as they wish, however, only three exchange rounds will be held. As plants are unloaded, up to three tickets will be issued to be collected before each round. Plants will be arranged alphabetically and participants will have time to look over the selection before lining up and choosing their goodies at the ringing of the bell.
The Master Gardener Volunteers will also have a plant, garden art, & garden item sale.
From 10:30 am-1:30 pm, the inside will be open for shopping. Plants for sale are sourced from MGVs’ gardens and will include natives, shrubs, shade and sun perennials, bulbs, and house plants. Master Gardeners will be available to help carry your purchases. The garden art sale will include indoor/outdoor decorative items made by MGVs including leaf castings and flower pots. MGVs have cleaned out their sheds, barns, and garages for the used garden item sale. Expect to find containers, tools, bird feeders, garden décor, books, and who knows what else.
Bring your plant questions for our Master Gardener Volunteers and be ready for a great time!
