If you want a cheap way to fill out your garden, come to the Greengirls plant swap.

From 10 a.m. to noon next Saturday, 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 — divisions of plants from your garden, extra seedlings or seeds, containers, garden tools, books or other supplies. If you can strike a deal with a fellow green-thumb, you’ve got a trade.

We’ll also be handing out free carrot seeds, gardening calendars and door prizes (while supplies last) and will provide free parking. Of course, the Greengirls will be on hand to bemoan our late spring and answer gardening questions.

So divide your overgrown plants, round up those extra seedlings 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.
