Members' Plant Exchange and Sale
The Associates of the Scott Arboretum invite you to our 21st Annual Members’ Plant Exchange & Sale on Saturday, May 14, 2016.
GARDENERS! Exchange plants from your garden for new plants brought by members from our region. You’ll typically find plants for every niche in the landscape, from sun and shade perennials, trees and shrubs, container plants to vegetables.
Start thinking now about divisions, surplus, or highlight plants you can share.
No plants to exchange? No problem! You can buy plants at the sale following the exchange. Hundreds of plants remain after the exchange for purchase by members. Most are priced at just $1.00.
The Members Plant Exchange and Sale is FUN, and a great way to try new plants. You can fill in those bare spots in your garden at very low cost. Soon you’ll find you have an enviable surplus for next year’s exchange.
Help us make this 21st Anniversary Members’ Plant Exchange and Sale the most successful ever. All proceeds benefit the Associates of the Scott Arboretum.
The Exchange - for plant donors (and newly joining members)
- Pick up free pots and labels from the Arboretum to help you get started.
- Check out plant propagation for helpful hints on getting the most new plants out of your landscape.
- Pot up extra perennial divisions, annuals, and woody plants as early as you can in the spring, and bring them to the Exchange during the drop-off periods. Receive one token for every three plants you contribute.
- Review 'The Rules' on the back page of the brochure or online.
- Come to the Exchange and spend your tokens on new plants, generally priced at just one token each.
- In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Plant Exchange, plant donors will receive a bonus token.
The Sale – for all Scott members
No plants to contribute? No problem. Once the Exchange ends, well over a thousand plants remain for sale to all. Most are priced at $1, with just a few larger or exceptional woodies somewhat higher.
