Local plant lovers will soon have the chance to add more variety to their collections.

The Columbia Garden Club will host its fall plant exchange Oct. 2 in the Talbot’s parking lot at 4809 Forest Dr., Columbia.

Attendees are invited to bring plants they would like to share including the following:

  • iris
  • herbs
  • seeds
  • houseplants
  • roses
  • rooted camellias
  • azaleas

Other plants excluding invasive species will also be accepted.

Guests will have the opportunity to swap their plants for something desired from another attendee. There is no cost involved to participate in the event. Donated items should be labeled and will be accepted from 8:45 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. The plant exchange will begin at 10 a.m.

The CGC was founded in 1926 and has held a semiannual event each fall and spring since 1927, with the exception of 2020 due to COVID.

Focal points of the club include:

  • promoting a love of gardening
  • encouraging civic beautification by sponsoring plantings in both public and private places
  • protecting native trees, flowers and birds through conservation efforts and decoration projects

Through club projects and contributions from its foundation, the Columbia Garden Club has participated in the beautification of nearly every landmark in Columbia.
