Plants – First Come, First Serve Dig Day

Q: We are selling an old home for a tear-down and have the right to dig up any plants on the two acre property before we close. My family will get some of the plants but many more will be left. Do you have any suggestions on who might want to come dig up plants?

A: The best first step is to have a detailed list of what will be available: 15 clumps of daffodils, 2 ‘August Beauty’ gardenias (4′tall), 2 un-named mophead hydrangeas (4′ tall), etc. Then join Freecycle (www.freecycle.org) and list the plants plus a “first come, first served” dig day there.
