DESTREHAN/LULING – An annual plant exchange will be held at the German Coast Farmers Market on the East Bank on Saturday, May 3 and on the West Bank on Wednesday, May 7.

Plants must be well established in one-half gallon or larger containers. Botanical and “popular” name and care of plant should be included.

A special award will be given to the person who brings an old Southern plant that is hard to find.

Gardeners love getting a different or unusual plant.  

Participants should check in at the East Bank welcome booth at 10 a.m., with plants to be exchanged at 10:30 a.m. They can check into the West Bank welcome booth at 4 p.m., with plants to be exchanged at 4:30 p.m.  

Plants will be numbered and corresponding numbers placed in a 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.  

For further information call Marilyn Richoux at (985) 764-2698.
