Gardeners, experienced or beginners, are invited to Smith Library's Fall Gardening Swap, planned for Saturday, Aug. 25, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Friends and neighbors may bring seeds and bulbs, whether store-bought or saved from years before, and trade for other seeds they'd like to plant. Seeds of edible and non-edible plants, flowers, herbs, fruits, and vegetables are all welcome. Please do not bring genetically modified/engineered seeds. It is not necessary to bring seeds in order to attend and take some home.
Bulbs and seeds that are best for fall planting include daffodils, lilies, crocuses, hyacinths, edible greens, Texas Aster, chrysanthemums, and pansies.
In addition to the swap, Collin County Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions about growing from seeds and other gardening topics.
This event is free. Participants should bring cards with information about their seeds. Include name of plant, type of seed or bulb, and growing conditions on several cards that other participants can take with them. Also bring plastic bags or other containers, labels, and felt-tipped pens.
