I have lots of plants that need dividing and I'm happy to share with my neighbors. Both sun and shade perennials, including several kinds of hosta, coreopsis, purple daylilies, campanula, spiderwort, Japanese anemones, heliopsis, black-eyed susans, goldenrod, sea oats, Culver's root, trumpet vine, autumn-flowering clematis, iris, garlic chives, mint.......and more. Google these names if you want to see what they look like in bloom. Contact me if you're interested.
P.S. "Acts of kindness" seems odd but no other category fits!

    A very kind act to both plants and neighbors!

    I would love some. Let
    Me know how we can connect, fellow gardener.

  • Thanks for sharing! I would love to pick up some plants to beautify my garden.

  • Perfect timing. I am digging out the spiderwort that seems to be taking over my garden and would love to replace with your coreopsis, black eyed susan's, and some of the others you have available if I could. I'm around this weekend so could run over. This is so very kind of you!!!

  • Are there any left? My neighbor and I are planning to spruce up the planters in front of our building today and could come pick some up. Thanks!

  • Nik Mom to 2

    I would love to come get some. A neighbor and I are beautifying an area along Ravenswood that was previously collecting garbage. How do I contact you to arrange a time to come? I cannot come until Tuesday though.

  • Thanks for this offer! How can I connect with you? Would love to have more herbs and greenery around our home.

  • Jean59 GWCA resident since '91

    Your garden must be spectacular! I envy your neighbors

  • BettyR Northcenter

    If you have any hostas left, I’ll take some. If not, thank you anyway! You are very generous!

  • Any herbs available? Looking to start some herbs here at our new condo.

  • I would also love some. In the middle of planting. Please text me at 773-822-2047 so we may connect. Thank you.

    Any particular time on either day?

    Thanks, Betty, Anything after 10:00. Bring a plastic bag!

    Super awesome. I'm down the block and I'd love some mint. Would you like some Coleus (potted or cuttings) in exchange? And, any chance you're around today or tonight? I'm at work by 10 tomorrow. Thanks!!

  • I’d love some clematis, iris and mint. Any left?

  • Anita W. in Wrigleyville 30-year resident

    SORRY--brain freeze! I will be distributing plants after 10:00 AM on Tuesday the 29th and Friday June 1st, but on Saturday June 2nd I need to stop by 10:00, so the window to pick up plants has shrunk from 9:00 AM to 10:00 on Saturday--sorry, I hope everyone can still make it. Or I might be able to make further, separate plans if necessary

  • Would love to swing by Tues for any/all particularly iris, herbs and shade perennials. LMK where and I can be there the 29th. Thanks SO much.

  • future alderman future alderman

    i can't believe it! she (finally) said she has enuf!

    I'll be home today if anyone wants to come by for plants. Come round to the alley behind 1231 W. Addison St. Bring a plastic bag!

  • P N

    I'd love one! When can I get it?
