2. Plants need to be individually bagged or potted up.

5. Please do not bring chemicals or plants that are considered invasive (i.e. English Ivy)

How the Plant Swap will work
Number system: Each person will select a number. There will be ten of each number. That way a small group will choose at each interval. For example, when the number 1 is called, 10 people who have drawn this number will step forward and make one selection. We will go through this process three times. After everyone has been able to make three choices, the swap will open up to being able to choose from the selection will staying in groups.
