Feeling green this spring? We’re hosting a houseplant swap where people can pick up an indoor plant, share cuttings of their own, or drop off a plant they no longer need.

The swap will be at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, at our Main Branch. New this year — an expert from the Lake County Master Gardeners will discuss houseplant care. The program is open to all and registration is required. Sign up on our website or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 1.

Three more tips for any green thumbs out there:

1. Did you know that you can get free veggie, flower, and herb seeds from our Seed Library? The seed library will reopen for the planting season on March 15. Check out our collection  the next time you visit our Main Branch. Borrow up to 15 packets of seeds per season.

2. You should also check out the special collection from Holden Forests & Gardens’ Corning Library available at our Main Branch. In addition to a gorgeous arboretum in Kirtland, Holden also has a spectacular collection of gardening, horticulture, environmental and botany books at Corning Library within its arboretum.

Dozens of Corning Library’s books are now available to borrow at our Main Branch. Thanks to a partnership between libraries, you can use your cards to check out books from this special collection. Our typical lending rules apply.

3. You can visit our YouTube channel for several gardening and horticulture programs from our friends at the Lake County Master Gardeners.
