A plant exchange and sale will be held 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday, May 20 at Audubon Community and Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., Jamestown.

Trade some of your plants for new ones or purchase from the large selection of native plants, annuals, perennials, trees, and shrubs.

You can trade in some of your own plants in exchange for new plants, or purchase plants outright. There will be a large selection of native plants, as well as annuals, perennial plants, trees, and shrubs.

There will also be a selection of local nurseries selling plants, including natives, as well as a garden treasures sale of gently used garden equipment and décor, tools, pots, and more. Vendors include Royal Fern Nursery, who sells native plants, and other local vendors.

Audubon plants are $2.50 per 4” pot, $5.00 per 6 – 8” pot, and $10 per 10” pot. Bring your own potted plants to the plant trade-in table to trade them for tickets that can be used to buy more plants! Each ticket is worth a dollar towards plant purchases. Audubon reserves the right to reject invasive species, unpotted plants, plants in poor condition, plants in multi-species pots, or plants that appear to be infested with weeds or jumping worms.

ACNC will not accept plants for exchange after noon. Due to the relatively recent appearance of invasive jumping worms in the region, all plants brought in for trade must be in sterile soil purchased from a store. Seeds must be grown in sterile soil. Plants must have their roots washed clean of soil (and the invasive worm eggs that may be embedded) in order to be accepted for trade.

Many local nurseries and garden stores donate to this event in order to provide a wide selection. These donated plants will be available for cash only, and will not be available to purchase as an exchange. Cash and checks are preferred for a smooth and easy check out, but credit cards will be accepted at the Reception Desk.

Volunteer Master Gardeners will be on hand to give advice at the advice table.
