INSTRUCTIONS for PLANT DONORS:

1. Digging and Potting Plants:

- Dig and pot the plants in the fall or in the spring and at least one week before the plant sale.  (Most perennials survive the winter in a pot, covered with leaves, and in an area protected from wind).

- Whenever possible, please use 1 gallon square pots (available from Edel or from the recyling bin at nurseries).

- Divide large clumps of plants if possible, to fit into 1 gallon pots.

- Water the potted plants generously and regularly to stay fresh.

- Should you need pots or soil, contact Edel.

 

2. Labeling Plants:

- Label each potted plant, using a wood or plastic stick and a permanent marker, as

  follows:

one side: Plant Name & Cultivar (if known), Colour, Height

other side: Full Sun/Shade/Part Shade and the flowering season (when applicable)

    (The plant databases links below are helpful in finding plant characteristics.)

- Labels are available at the April & May club meetings or by contacting Edel.

- There is no need to label hostas, as they are well-know and easily identified.

 

3. Plant drop offs: Announced in the spring at the club meetings and in the April or May newsletter.
