• What are plant swaps? Plant swaps are a fun way to get rid of any extra plants you may have (perennial divisions, extra seedlings, pack annuals, unwanted houseplants, etc.) by trading with other gardeners!
• Plants should be in a container
• Label plants as well as possible (annual/perennial, size, sun/shade, bloom color, etc.)
• Bring flats or trays to transport your new plants home
• Plants should be well watered, pest and disease free
• Dig plants a few days in advance so they can recover, and water well!

The Tivoli Free Library is located in the historic Watts dePeyster Hall at 86 Broadway in the Village of Tivoli, NY. Handicap access available at the rear of the building.
