The ANA is hosting its 3rd plant swap. October is an ideal time to divide flowering plants. Most perennials benefit from being thinned periodically. If you’re going to dig up any of your flowers, consider keeping some of the divisions to bring to the Ardmore Plant Swap. This is like a potluck supper with plants. Bring whatever you have, swap it for something wonderful from the other plants that were donated, then stick around for a cup of spiced cider and some flower talk with your neighbors.
NOTE: If you don’t have a plant to bring with you, don’t worry. Just come on anyway and we’ll have a plant for you to take home with you. This is the Ardmore Neighborhood Association’s third plant swap with the cooperation and sponsorship of the Ardmore Gateway Garden. In the past, people have brought hostas, daylilies, coneflowers, asters, Autumn Joy red sedum, phlox, astilbes, lavender, Black-eyed Susans, bleeding heart, ornamental grasses, coral bells, Lily of the Valley, even some herbs. For experienced and beginning gardeners alike, a North Carolina Master Gardener will be on hand to answer questions and to help with problem solving if requested. If you need more information or are willing to volunteer, phone of text (336) 682-4804.
