The Wylde Center is looking for a few good gardens to be in the annual Wylde Garden Tour, formerly known as the Decatur Garden Tour.

The Wylde Center is looking for six or eight gardens to feature on the tour which takes place on May 14, 2016.

Executive director Stephanie Van Parys said all types of gardens can enter: “Vegetable gardens, flower gardens, koi ponds, beautiful landscaping – all apply!”

Interested gardeners can email Kalia Edmonds with the Wylde Center.

In other Wylde Center news, the annual seed and scion swap is happening Saturday, Jan. 23 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Decatur Library, 215 Sycamore Street.

The event is free and open to all gardeners. An announcement on the Wylde Center website says, “We’ll be swapping all types of seeds and cuttings for fruit trees (scions), including heirloom seeds, seeds you save from your own plants, and extra seeds you may have purchased. There will be people on hand to answer question about how to save seed and how to graft your cuttings.”
