HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Share the joy of “extras” in your garden. Fall is an excellent time to thin perennials and plant new ones in the garden. Everyone is invited to bring some favorite garden plants and exchange them for new ones at the Reno County Extension Master Gardener Perennial Plant Swap. The Plant Swap will be held on Saturday, October 21 at the Reno County Farmer’s Market from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
The Reno County Farmers’ Market is located at 2nd and Washington in Hutchinson.
Anyone interested is welcome to participate. There is no charge for the event. Plants should be healthy and free of insects. Any type of houseplant or perennial can be exchanged – flowers, trees, shrubs, vegetables and herbs. No annuals please. There will also be a seed exchange. Seeds can be either annuals or perennials. Garden books, tools, and supplies are also welcome. Please have all plants and seeds labeled.
Plants should be in some kind of bag or container so they can be easily transported.
Extension Master Gardeners will be available to answer gardening questions. For more information, contact the Reno County Extension Office at 620-662-2371.
