Getting Ready for the April Plant Exchange

The Master Gardener Plant Exchanges have always felt like Christmas to me, long anticipated and highly enjoyed.  Even before becoming an MG, I have looked forward to these bi-annual events with glee.  Free plants!  So far though, my only contributions have been succulent cuttings and volunteering at the events.

However, its now past-time for me to give back in the way of donating actual rooted plants.  When the tree collard that MG Tina Saravia gave me became leggy, I took a few cuttings and unceremoniously stuck them in soil.   I also pruned an English lavender 3 weeks ago, and those cuttings went in as well.  Currently, everything appears to be growing happily.   

Now pots have to be found, and fingers crossed that they continue to thrive and remain undiscovered by pests.  The newbie in me did whisper “hopefully you haven't jinxed them by blogging”!  Too late, lol.   So excited for the next exchange, which will be on April 20 from 9 am until 12 noon.  See you there! Cheers!
