D.C. plant swap!
Our friends over at Washington Gardener magazine and blog are hosting a plant swap on Saturday, June 19, and we think it is a brilliant idea!
We're telling you early so you can pot up the plants you want to swap now so they have time to settle in and a better chance at successful transplanting.
The plant swap will begin promptly at 10 a.m. at the H Street Farmers Market at H & 8th -- 624 H Street NE near Union Station -- and should only last an hour.
Hostess Kathy Jentz, founder of Washington Gardener, has a list of instructions that will help you learn as much as you need to know about the plants you acquire. And she is planning to turn this event into quite the garden social hour!
This is a great way to expand your garden or find new varieties. And its free!
