Plant swapping or sharing

Hi I am having problems online obtaining alpine plants as its partly to late & with coronavirus 3 weeks ago they were sold out. Would anyone remove very small portions of say bigger Aubrieta plants or smaller alpines via very small bits. The idea being you wouldn't notice what you removed so its no disadvantage too you? I could use Paypal to pay you if you have an account for free. I live in the UK so you must be from there. The costs could include postage & packing. It hopefully builds community doing such things particularly with over demand problems online with coronavirus garden plant buying.

    Garden centres have been open all winter and they’re full of alpines at the moment ... I was at a Notcutts the other day and they had more pots of saxifrage, aubretia and alyssum saxatile than you could shake a stick at 😃 
    Reasonably priced too.

    @davehebblethwaite. You could try putting your swaps on our seed and plant swap shop.

  • Have you seen this- image58

    Following a successful sale process, Wyevale Garden Centres has now ceased trading and has recently entered a Members Voluntary Liquidation. For any queries please click on the link below.

    How sad.

  • Notcutts only have limited stuff online and I can't get there being disabled. Frustration really I didnt need to post this. Will have to do some thinking. I could not spot the bit in secret gardens section. Not sure if I am still subscribing and that makes it missing.

    I think @gjautos meant this site rather than the GW Secret Garden area
