Trade plants, seeds, bulbs!

For Akron-area folks, this sounds like a great way to avoid the high prices at your local nurseries this spring. I'd be there, but I have another weekend in Cincinnati ahead of me.

Obtained via Akron Freecycle:

What: Free Plant & Flower Swap
Where: Kiwanis, 725 Portage Lakes Drive by State Mill
When: THIS SATURDAY, May 3, 9:00am-11:00 am
Why: To exchange your extra plants for FREE new ones!

As many as you bring, you'll get to bring home.

Bring plants in pots or bags, labeled with the name, what type of sun,
a/o soil (sandy? etc.) & if anything special should be known. (Can
also label perennial, but I assume most will be perennial.)

Can also bring seeds & bulbs(labeled) in bags.

Try to get there early, 8:45 or 9:00am, to have your plants put into
the sharing area, and to get your tickets for the exchange. They will
allow 10 or so people at one time every 15 min or so to choose plants.
So the early birds get the best choice.
