Fall Plant Exchange

Attention - due to the construction at Hillview Community Center, the Plant Exchange has been moved !! The Los Altos History Museum has kindly made space available west of the Museum. Turn into the Library driveway, drive past the Library to the first street to the left. There will be 2 parking places blocked off to allow us to drop-off plants, then park in the vicinity. Additional parking is down that street where the Los Altos Police Department, Los Altos Youth Center and City Hall are located.

LABEL ALL PLANTS
Include name and flower color.
The #1 reason for delay is unmarked plants. If you have your plants labeled, you can go directly to check in and save time.

DO BRING
Rooted plants in pots (optional for succulents)
Bulbs
Cuttings
Small shrubs or trees
Cut cell packs into 6 sections.
Divide large clumps like agapanthus, bamboos, society garlic (no need to pot).

Wilted plants--(Would you want a wilted plant?.......)
Weeds or invasive plants
Large undivided clumps (Too hard to manage)

HONOR SYSTEM OBSERVED HERE
Take in proportion to what you bring. Take only one of each type of plant, or 2-3 of a cutting or a bulb.

Fall Plant and Bake Sale

The Fall Plant and Bake Sale takes place on Tuesday, September 24th, before our meeting. Proceeds are used to fund our wonderful speaker program and is a way for everyone to support our Club. Drop off plants around 9:30 at the picnic area so that we can price and arrange the tables; we will have helpers to unload your cars. Try and bring your bake sale items early as it makes set-up easier. Tell your friends about our Sale - ALL are welcome! Sale begins at 11 AM until 12:30 PM.

What to bring? Potted well-rooted plants, we prefer 4" or larger but nothing too big or heavy for us to lift. Label plants with Name, Sun or Shade, Color of bloom, How large it gets, etc. A photo of the plant always helps with the sale. Bulbs, including iris, glads, watsonia, freesias, cannas, scilla; Perennials, Grasses, Shrubs, Succulents, Houseplants, Herbs or Fall Veggies are all welcome. And nice Garden Accessories, Decorative Pots, Plant Stands are welcome as well. If you bring bulbs try putting them in plastic bags and label with color if possible. After the meeting, plants will be sold at “buy 1 at original price and get the 2nd plant at the same or lower price for free”.

Bake Sale takes place in our meeting room. Package your baked goods in easy to transport wrappings. Cookies, Cakes, Breads, Pickles, Jams are all good sellers. Lemons, Apples, all Fruits are welcome. Label goodies, especially if they contain nuts, or if they are gluten free.

Our garden volunteers always have fun; bring a lunch, I will provide juice and cookies. Susan Moss, Plant & Bake Sale Chair
