If you have too many hostas and too few asters, we have the solution for you: the Greengirls plant swap.
From 10 a.m. to noon on May 19, the Star Tribune's garden bloggers will be hosting a cash-free plant swap. Our marketplace will be the small park across from the Star Tribune building (425 Portland Av. S. in downtown Minneapolis).
Here's how it works: Bring whatever you have to share, including divisions of plants from your garden, seedlings, containers, garden tools, books or other supplies. Leave your money in your mattress. If you can strike a deal with a fellow green-thumb, you've got a trade.
We'll also be giving out free sunflower seeds, gardening calendars and door prizes (while supplies last) and will provide free parking.
Of course, the Greengirls will be on hand to dish the dirt on gardening. So dig up your extras, divide your overgrown plants and join us, rain or shine.
All transactions are between individuals. The Star Tribune makes no representations or warranties regarding trades of plants or garden supplies. The management assumes no responsibility for the loss or damage by fire, theft or any other cause to or by the vehicle while in custody of the management.
