Waste not, want more?

Chorlton Plant Swap is a free resource to help you fill your gardening space with lovely plants - ornamentals and edibles! It’s easy to create spare plants from your existing ones. Many do the job for you by self-seeding or spreading. Most seed packs have far more seeds than any one person wants to use, so these too can be shared. Find out more about how to make new plants.

Save money, save time, save the world
Save money, save on trips to garden centres, meet other lovely gardeners. 
Swapping can happen all year round through our Google group at

Helping each other

Garden exploding over its borders? You can offer without receiving.
Just starting out or been visited by a plague of slugs? You can ask without giving ... within reason.
It’s fun to swap but not essential – most gardeners are generous folk.

Register on the Google group to get swapping and receive news about live swap events and other interesting happenings.
