Plant & Seed Swap

April 22, 2023
11:00am - 1:00pm

Join us for the next Plant Swap on Saturday, April 22 from 11-1pm in our mall hallway. We welcome everyone to bring plants and seeds to share. Plus, a pop-up sale from Planted!


Here's how it works:

  • Bring your garden seeds & healthy, labeled (species/common name) potted plants or cuttings ( rooted or unrooted). Package cuttings accordingly so they won't suffer too much out of water during the swap.

  • Don't be afraid to ask the group for help ID-ing beforehand if you're unsure of what you are bringing to the table(s).

  • Leave diseased, pest-ridden, or obviously struggling plants at home!

  • Bring plant accessories (planters, propagation stations, soil, plant tags, tools, fertilizer, whatever).

  • Most of the swap is loosely "bring one, take one" - you'll drop your offerings on one of the tables and walk around taking what appeals to you. No haggling/negotiations required. It's basically a free-for-all!

  • If you have higher-value items that you want to trade for other high-value items, there will be a table just for that. "High-value" is up to the owner to define. We have allowed sales at this table in the past, but the preference is to swap.

  • Do not be afraid to treat "high-value" items as ordinary items that you just drop on a table for someone to take (even in exchange for their spider plant baby). Make someone's dreams come true!

  • Depending on how many tables we have available, we may have a service table where people can trade for services, e.g., repotting.

  • We have ALWAYS had leftovers at the end, so if you have nothing to swap and are newer in your plant journey, this is a good time to come. Help us rehome some of the dregs (these tend to be common items like spider babies, aloe pups, pothos clippings, and garden divisions).

This event is co-hosted by CU Plant People.
