Perrenial Plant exchange: 12th edition!

On Saturday, September 17th 2016 (12noon-2pm), the Éco-quartier NDG will host a perennial plant exchange in Somerled Park (at the Eco-quartier NDG in case of rain – 6575 Somerled, suite 206). All Montreal residents are invited to bring a perennial in order to exchange it with one from the bank. Participants will be pleased to return home with a new variety of plant, while meeting other people passionate about gardening.

 

Perennial plants provide numerous benefits, in addition to the fact that they don’t have to be replanted every year (reduces transport, containers, etc). These plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate the ground and surface water, outcompete weeds (reducing the need for herbicides), and help to mitigate global warming by carbon sequestration.

 

Take advantage of this perennial plant exchange, as it is a great way to acquire new plants and rejuvenate your garden. The Éco-quartier NDG welcomes those looking to freshen up their gardens, as well as those simply looking to find new tips to get their gardens started.
