Passalong Plants

Crinum 'Ellen Bosanquet'
The tradition of sharing favorite plants with friends and family is as old as the practice of gardening itself. Plants that are tough, durable, and easy to propagate are often shared among friends and neighbors, or passed down from one generation to the next. Some plants are shared so commonly, they have come to be known as ‘passalong plants’. If you have a plant you wish to pass along to someone, fall is a great time to do so.

Learn more about dividing and sharing plants by reading the rest of the article posted on the Pender Cooperative Extension website:
