Fall is the best time to thin out your bulb flowering plants. Not only can you bring bulbs, but feel free to bring seeds or any kind of plants you would like to share. This is a great time to swap out some of your old plants for new ones.
Come on your lunch break – you may find something new, or just stop by and visit!
