Plant Exchange

 CLARKSTON FARM & GARDEN CLUB’S

PERENNIAL PLANT EXCHANGE

 

The Clarkston Farm and Garden Club’s Plant Exchange will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2017 in the Clarkston Village Downtown Parking Lot on M-15 and Washington Street at 8:30 a.m.

Guidelines for the Plant Exchange

  • Carefully dig, divide and thin the number of plants to trade.  Pot plants individually with enough soil and moisture to bring them to the Plant Exchange.  If you plant a couple of weeks before, they are perky for the plant exchange.
  • Arrive at 8:30 a.m. to set out your plants, as the Plant Exchange will begin at 9:00 a.m. 
  • Plants will be grouped and displayed by category. 
  • Look over the plants before 9:00 a.m.
  • Identify and label plants by download and printing the page of labels
  • At 9:00 a.m., you will draw a number and line up according to the number.  When you reach the front of the line, you will be able to pick one plant, and then you will return to the end of the line. 
  • You may go through the line as many times as you brought plants.  Example 5 plants, you may go back through the line five times and take five plants.
  • We sometimes have plants left over and you may purchase the plants for a $1.00 or more, depending on the quality/quantity of each plant.
  • The event takes place rain or shine, so bring your umbrella or sunscreen as needed.
  • Thank you for sharing your plants and we hope that you find some great plants to start in your garden.
