2012 PLANT SWAP AT CLARK COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS
May 12 is the day to find healthy perennials, vegetable and flowering annuals, herbs, bulbs, tubers, shrubs, and trees at great prices. You’ll also find unusual garden art, hanging baskets and a variety of mixed containers. If you’re in need of advice or ideas, the Clark County Master Gardeners will be happy to answer your questions.
Coffee and snacks will be available and be sure to check the 4-H newsletter for information on registration for the kids’craft session.
Doors open at 7:30 a.m. and selling continues until tables are empty—usually before 11:30. Come early for best selection.
Mark your calendars and set your alarm clocks—the swap happens only once a year and you don’t want to miss it.
Vendors are allowed two tables and may begin setting up at 6:30 on Saturday morning.
