DESTREHAN - The German Coast Farmers’ Market will hold its spring plant exchanges on May 4 (East Bank) and May 8 (West Bank).

Plants must be well established in one-half gallon or larger containers. Botanical and “popular” name and care instructions for the plant should be included. All plants will be welcome, classic pass-a-longs or not. A special award will be given to the person who brings an old southern hard-to-find-at-nurseries plant.

Participants should check in at the East Bank welcome booth at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 4, with plants to be exchanged at 10:30 a.m. Those at the West Bank market should check in at the welcome booth at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8. Plants will be exchanged at 4:30 p.m.

Plants will be numbered and corresponding numbers placed in hat to be drawn at exchange time. Participants should also feel free to bring cuttings or other potted plants to share. After the exchange has taken place, those wishing to do further exchanging may do so.
