Parkman Connections - 2014

Parkman Connections is planning a Plant Swap for the Summer 2014

Hi Plant Swap Folks!

Do you have friends who would enjoy going to the plant swap on June 7? Perhaps they need more information before they join in on the fun. Maybe they aren't sure about how to divide the perennial plants in their gardens. If so, that's no longer a problem! Just give them the link below for the Parkman Plant Swap Blog, and let them read all about the plant swap. They'll also be able to watch some informative videos about how to divide their plants. After watching one or two of the videos on the blog, your friends will gain the confidence they need to dig up and divide their plants for the plant swap! Here's the link to the Parkman Plant Swap Blog:

Before next year, I intend to add more videos about how to start plants from seeds as well as how to take cuttings from shrubs and start new plants from the cuttings. If you have any questions about how to do something in the garden, please let me know. I'll do my best to find good information for you that I can share on the Parkman Plant Swap Blog.

I've heard from a few of you about the plants you intend to bring to the plant swap this year, and the plant list includes a big variety of plants already! Here is a partial list of some of the plants you may see at the plant swap this year:

dianthus (common name is cottage pinks)
achillea (yarrow)
hosta
daylilies
basil
ornamental grass
pulmonaria
hellebore (if the transplant process goes well)

See you on the first Saturday in June -

June 7 - at the Parkman Community House.

The plant swap will begin at 1:00PM,
so you might want to arrive a few minutes before 1:00.

As always, please feel free to share this email with your friends and family. And don't forget to check out the Parkman Plant Swap Blog at http://parkmanplantswap.blogspot.com/
