There’s plenty of rain in the forecast, and although I’m not personally celebrating that fact, why not take advantage of it and get out in the garden and conquer all the things you've wanted to do for months but it's been to dry? Then bring your plant divisions, plants you don’t have a good home for, or one you've just gotten tired of, and swap them for something new!
|(actual plants may vary)|
What’s the catch? There isn't one. My plant lust partners and I were given the opportunity to do something at Schoolhouse and we thought a good old-school community plant swap sounded like fun. The only rule is that your plants must be labeled with their name and in a container.
Plus…anyone who brings a plant to the swap will receive 10% off at Schoolhouse all weekend! (Saturday and Sunday, so you don’t have to shop the day of the swap if you’d rather get home and plant). Time to finally buy those sconces, pillows, or that rug you've been eyeing!
And…Anna Mara Flowers (located just inside the Schoolhouse showroom) is also offering 10% all flowers and plants the day of the swap, fabulous!
Naturally team plant lust will be on hand during the swap to help with your plant choices and soak up all the plant happiness. I wish you all could come to our swap, but if you’re not in the Portland area I strongly encourage you to organize a plant swap of your own. The Portland Garden Bloggers group has had a couple now and it’s been so much fun to see everyone, check out the plants they bring, and I’m not going to lie… free plants rock, hope to see you there!
