Open Gardens, March 2

 In General

Open Gardens, March 2, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Neem Tree Farms, 602 Ronele Drive, Brandon, 33511.

We love plant swaps! And this time we have a giant pile of really nice mulch from TECO! You’ll need to bring something to carry it home in if you want some though! (Actually, a bucket and a small trowel are good things to have just for the other plants on the list.)

This is my list of plants to swap or give away, the really cool thing is that you never know what someone else might bring! (My personal wish list includes more banana trees for Tampa Bay Harvest and a queen’s wreath!)

Plants in pots (limited quantities, swaps expected!)

Milkweed (non-native, but I’ve purchased seeds and set up a spot for native so hopefully we’ll have them soon, but the non-natives have obviously not treated with pesticides)
