Neighborhood Plant Exchange
Norbeck Meadows resident Dave Miller is helping to facilitate a neighborhood plant exchange. Hostas too big to manage? Need to split your daffodils? Trade your "extra" plants with your neighbors – it's a great (and inexpensive) way to increase the variety of plants in your yard while helping your neighbors do the same!
Below is Dave's list of plants available for adoption:
- Blue, white Siberian iris* (many)
- Yellow daffodils* (many)
- Oregon grape holly (Mahoney ilex)* 2-3 ft. (2), seedlings (20)
- Forsythia 2-4 ft. (many)
- Red maples 2-4 ft. (32)
- Green Hostas 2-3 ft. (7)
* Deer resistant. Note: the best defense against deer browsing is an 8 ft. high deer fence - contact Dave for more info on deer fences.
If you are interested in offering plants of your own for adoption or if you are interested in, contact Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-774-4905.
