Plant & Seed Exchange

Remember to bring any extra seeds and plants (annuals, perennials, shrubs, etc.) with you to the XGC monthly meetings to share with your fellow club members!

We also recycle plant pots. If you have sturdy plastic pots—4 inches or larger—drop them off in front of the Zilker Garden Center before the next meeting. The pots are recycled to Native Texas Nursery in exchange for plants for the Xeriscape Demo Garden.
