The Power of the Plant Swap



The first-ever DC Urban Gardener Plant Swap reminded me once again why they’re so

The day before, you look around your garden for plants you can give away.  And after a glorious hour at a farmer’s market, lots of new gardeners and a few old-timers are taking home free plants that succeeded in gardens near them.  Perennials for sun or shade, shrubs and trees, houseplants and lots of edibles.  Everybody’s talking about plants.  And gardening is oh, so affordable.  Here’s our report. 


  1. One local gardener in South Deerfield, MA has made a career of sorts out of swapping. Bette Sokoloski holds a swap at her house twice a month all spring and summer, plants, cuttings, pots, eggs, who knows what will show up. Well organzied and very educational. Here’s to Bette and all the swappers.
