Green plant swap - spread the word!

Hi, 

 

I just stumbled across this great website called Green Plant Swap (www.greenplantswap.co.uk) where anyone can sign up for free and either buy, sell or swap plants you have grown with other like minded growers in your area and I think it's a great idea.

You can recycle the plants that would otherwise end up on the bonfire or the compost each year and it's also a simple way for you to share the seedlings and young plants that multiply more abundantly than you have room for - instead of chucking them, SWAP them or even sell them! to your neighbours.

Sadly, having registered there seems to be a slight lack in members near me so I thought I would try to spread the word and get people on here as the more people that join, the more advantageous it will be for everyone!

P.S I don't work for these guys, I just genuinely think it's a great idea!

Tom

    Lovely idea Tom. It would need to be pretty local though or the postage would be more than going to the GC

  • Exactly why we need to encourage MORE people to join!

  • Just seen your site on Right on the Money

    Just wondering if there are people in my area who belong. So we can do plant swaps etc

    Looks like a great resource - I've just signed up, and somewhat surprisingly, there are lots of like-minded gardeners near me!

    Thanks for sharing - I'd never heard of it before :-)

    Thanks for signposting this.  I've joined and there are a couple of people within a mile of me.  Should get busier with swaps as the growing season progresses.

    Joined yesterday so hopefully a few likeminded gardeners with plants to sell/swap will be in touch. I have quite a few plants that I can sell of swap, mostly hardy perennials

    What a fab idea! I'm going to sign up now. I often pick up plants that kind people leave out on tables and pop some coins in any honesty boxes. It's so lovely.
