Plant Swap/Sale Coming Soon to Room 723!

I'm planning on hosting my Spring Plant Swap and Sale again, on Thursday, May 14th and Friday, May 15th. I had to skip it last year, because we were in the process of moving into our new classrooms in the newly-created Primary building. But it's back, and hoping to be better than ever! Here are the details:

If you're a perennial gardener who needs to divide some of your plants this spring, we'd like you to consider joining us in this fun gardening event! Share your love of plants with others! Get new plants! (You may get some spending cash out of it, too!)

If you're looking for a great place to find home-grown perennials at great prices, come check our plant swap/sale out! You don't need to bring in any plants to share in order to get new plants--those who can't swap can always purchase plants, and many are sold at $5.00 per pot.

If you are bringing in plants for the swap sale, here are some extra details for you...

1.) As you dig up the plants you wish to contribute to the swap/sale, please put what you consider to be "Five Dollars Worth" into a pot at a time. That makes for easier swapping, since a majority of the plants will have a $5.00 value attached to them.

2.) If you need empty pots, please contact me--I have lots! :)

3.) Please maintain the potted plants until the sale event. You can bring your potted plants for the swap/sale as early as Wednesday, May 13th, from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m., or on Thursday or Friday that week, before or after school. You'll be best off having the plants to me Wednesday after school, so please plan accordingly.

4.) If you have plants that you wish to sell/swap for more or less than $5.00, please label the prices clearly on the pot. Pots of like prices will be swappable; for example, if you bring in a $2.00 plant, you can take a $2.00 plant, or two $1.00 plants. I'm a first grade teacher, after all; let's keep the math simple! :)

5.) Please label the PLANTS NAME, if you know of it, and the type of environment it thrives in (ex: full sun, part shade, houseplant only, etc.), as well as any other growing tips the buyer/swapper may need to know (ex: spreads rapidly, poisonous leaves, etc.).

Please contact me a jbiese@seymour.k12.wi.us for more information. Thanks for participating, and helping to beautify your yard, and the yards of others!
