April Seedling Exchange and May Plant Sale New Location: Stewart Park

From David Mitchell, plant sale coordinator.

In addition to our fabulous speaker, we’ll have our annual seedling exchange at our April meeting. Bring in your seedlings to share. I’ll have some pots and potting soil on hand. Potted divisions will also be accepted and priced for sale or held for the May plant sale. I’m hoping the seedlings will find good homes and that some will show up on our tables at the May and August plant sales. The seedling exchange is a great way to learn about what plants are easy to grow from seed and to learn from other’s experiences in growing them on.

The May plant sale will be held on May 15, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Due to Ithaca High School construction, the plant sale will be held at Stewart Park. We will not be able to set up on Friday afternoon, so please come early on Saturday to help. Change of plans. We will be able to set up on Friday afternoon. Our booth will be located inside the large pavilion.

My driveway is available for dropoffs any time before the day of the sale if you can’t make it to Stewart Park on Saturday morning. The driveway is on the Washington Street side of the corner of Washington and Esty Streets (402 Esty Street). My phone number is (607) 342-3660 should you have any questions about the sale. Tompkins County Cooperative Extension can be reached at (607) 272-2292.
